I'm a computer science student and I'm looking to start learning blockchain. I think its applications have a lot of uses and that it has potential in the future. Can you guys tell me some resources which would help me start out with it?10
A few weeks ago I saw a post from @dfox reviewing the movie 'Searching ' and exclaiming how he found it intriguing.
Watched it a few minutes ago and "it's bloody amazing!". If you're a fan of thriller. Watch it right now. Like right now.
Thank you, @dfox :)2
#Weird incidents with a designer
This girl texted me a picture of her newly painted dark-greyish nails
Her: what do you think is this color?
It's really annoying when you're watching a tutorial video and the person speaks much faster than he can type.
1.5x speed and the guy manages to type a single line of <p> tag and has like spoken 30000 sentences.
Are you even a web developer if you haven't banged your head on the desk coz the carousel refused to be responsive while you were busy correcting 15 other misalignments?5
Him: you know, I can recommend you a book, if you're into reading?
Me: well, I don't have that much time to read, I prefer online tutorials
(We're interrupted at that point)
(Later at dinner)
Me: which book were you gonna recommend me btw
Him: there's this psychology book I'm reading...
I've got this Acer laptop and I haven't really bothered before. But tf does this key do?
It seems to function like the right click but sometimes goes haywire.5
You don't need a mechanical keyboard to code for long hours but shit sure does become smooth af with a cherry MX red.2
In my 1st semester, they taught us C++ basics
In my 2nd semester, they didn't teach us shit about CS.
In my 3rd semester, they taught us C basics
In my 4th semester, they taught us Java basics
In my 5th semester, they are teaching us Scratch and Python basics
Can you be fucking done with basics already for fuck sake? I'm a fucking Front End Developer here interning with companies and getting paid whilst I pay a fucking huge sum as college fee and learn fucking basics I knew back in high school? And you're teaching me Scratch, what the fuck is wrong with you; kids in pre-school are taught scratch. Fuck you education system, India!
Which countries should I consider for my post grad?
I'm so fucking done here.24
Fellow Dev: the clients are requesting a gallery on their website with functioning modals.
Me: okay cool
*I googled as much as I could and I made a proper functioning gallery in 2 full days of coding*
Him: okay, so this is great but they aren't really digging it.
Me: *sigh* yes, so what do they want?
Him: have you seen how an image opens in Google images? Like you click on one, the image opens while the rest of the content shifts down?
Me: um... Yeah?
Him: yeah, so they want that.
Me: ... *Scoops the web trying to figure out how Google does it*. Dude, I can't find anything close to it and I've still got a lot to learn. Idk how to do it.
Him: well, you're being paid for that. So, you better do it.
Me: 1000Rs ( approx. 14.58$ ) isn't called "being paid". Gimme a break here.
Him: You're a novice rn.
Me: why don't you do it?
Him: I'm your boss.
*Sigh* (he indeed is my boss)
Him: deal with it.
Me: FU........C.....*suddenly I realized how it's done* OH OH OH OH I just got it, I just got it!
(I actually make something like that)
That's just my best story of a fight. Lol.5
Me(to client): I'm the designer for your website. Should I proceed with the landing page?
Client: I...actually just want my images to be watermarked with my logo3
2nd year of college, in computer science course and they're teaching us how to create star patterns using 'for loop'. Feels like 9th grade all over again (sigh)6
So this happened in my computer science class
Creepy guy trying to be cheesy (to this pretty girl): "you're like a ; to my code"
Girl: "we're studying python, bimbo"
(Whole class laughed)7
Guys, as professional developers, what are your views on WannaCrypt or WannaCry? That ransomware is a national news in my country right now7
Future Teller: Your bad code and unhappy behavior will last till you're 30.
Me[curiously]: and after 30?
FT: You'll get used to it.3
Random ideas about how I will fight and kill the terrorists who'll enter my room or rappel through the window1
(was teaching C++ to a newbie)
Me: aight, so to print a statement, you type cout.
(Proceeds to do so)
Her: um, okay but printer is not connected.
Me: aw, you poor thing.10
School course on C/C++ was so shitty I resorted to YouTube where I found this awesome channel called TheNewBoston10
So, somehow I got hands on a Google glass [yep that item which had it's hype go down]. Been wondering what I can do with it. Any ideas about what to do, what to develop for it, anything?5
I'm planing to learn Python but I'm not sure about the best resource I should learn it from. Help me, fellow pro people11
Interviewer: (asks technical question)
Me: (answers correctly)
Interviewer: Oh thank God, most of the people we interview fail to answer that. So, on another note do you believe in rubber duck debugging?
Me: yes, ofc
Interviewer: but it's just a toy you know
[I was kinda taken aback]
Me: God is imaginary too you know
Interviewer: (he just laughed)
(So I laughed with him) 😅12
