Not a rant but I'm not sure if I made the right choice. I got really curious this year in cloud infrastructure and started studying for my AWS Solutions Architect Exam. The company I work for (large company) allows me to switch roles/teams. Last week I was so bored with frontend I requested to switch to the Platform engineering team. The Engineer manager slacked me this morning....
PE Manager: I'll see you at standup this morning.
Me: Cool ill be there at 9, where is it? By the cafe?
PE Manager: No, in hell. Glad you joined the team 😃
What did I get myself into.1
Can we please make a Over Engineered Section....
This happened a couple of weeks ago...
Hey platform engineer team, we need a environment spun up, it's a static site, THATS IT!
PE Team response.. okay give us a 2 weeks we need to write some terraform, update some terraform module, need you to sign your life away as the aws account owner, then use this internal application to spin up a static site, then customize the yml file to use nuxt, then we will need you to use this other internal tool to push to prod...
ME: ITS a static site... all I need is a s3 bucket, cloudfront, and circleci9
Cannot figure out why my MBP slows to turtle speed every time it hits under 20% battery and fans spin up so loud and fast it sounds like a damn drone. I’ve reset the smc and everything!2
In the last module of my bootcamp(make all the jokes you want about bootcamp I have thick skin and a degree 😬) and just started applying for jobs. First job I applied for was a big company asking for 5+ years experience.
Might as well get used to rejection early 😂3
I lost a friend today😭.
He wanted to checkout my MacBook Pro, because he was thinking about buying one.
So I pulled mine out of my backpack, and turned it on.. Then windows 10 popped up!
I looked at him in shock like I just got caught watching porn. I tried to explain to him “it’s not what you think! I had to install it to use Microsoft Project!
He just looked at me in disgust, shaking his head, and walked away....34
Why do simple errors take the longest to fucking find!
Was using the geolocation api (js) to get the current longitude and latitude of my location. Stored them in an object to use in a fetch(). Every time I ran the fetch it was giving me the wrong location!
1hr later I realized I had used.
After realizing this mistake and everything I that lead up to that moment I closed my MacBook and took my ass to sleep.
Moral of this story is...take fucking breaks.
Boss: Happy Friday!!!!!!
Boss: okay with that out the way get to fuckin work...
Me: John(Boss’s name).....
Me: I hate you, happy Friday4
Is it weird that I’m looking forward to being full time frustrated with guys/gals about programming. #careerChange!!!
Just got my acceptance letter to CodingDojo in D.C. I’m pretty excited! I start April 16th. 4 years I been waiting for this moment.
This is Why I give IT support so much respect.
Friend: my computer stopped working can you help?
Me: (porn...again) fine I'll help.
Friend: come over when your ready
Me: Be there tomorrow bro
Me: where is your desktop
Friend: upstairs, I tried everything man
Me: look at the monitor... look at the hp piece of shit.. see green light on... look back at the monitor...no light... look at my friend.
Me: look behind the desk...
Me: 😪your monitor is unplugged
Me: fuck you lose my number5
Spotify, Things App to list my task, phone on DND and in the other room. If it's really serious I have to go to my favorite coffee spot.
I have 6 months before I get out of the military, and make my path to being a developer! Scary and exciting feeling!19
Stuck in tutorial hell....
I have a list of ideas for applications I want to create but I always feel like I never know enough to start them. So I end up signing up for another tutorial from most of the popular sites to only skip pass all 50-60%. Has anyone ever experienced this? I'm open for suggestions to get pass this!!15
