So I became a team leader ("promotion").
One of the team is a senior by title, but fuck he is just a refactoring machine. Seeks for architecture design in fucking everything. Even in fucking tests instead of just writing them he is inventing convoluted architectures and systems...
Fuuuuuuck - just write the fucking tests, no one gives a shit if you have a fucking factory in the test case!
So I'm working at the company for 8 months now. Best 8 months in my career, great team mates, great work, the best - a team leader who is one of the best developers I've ever worked with, but more importantly he is a good friend, brother like. We had great time, from the interview we understood there is a bro-mance there.
So why am I ranting? He got promoted and became a group leader, not even of my group. Now we don't have a TL and we're afraid they won't be able to get a swell guy like our exTL2
50% position (95 hours a month)
100% of my current compensation (~90k$)
In a company like the one I work in now: great team and great tech drive.
Rest of the time is for hobbies and family.2
- It's a game, play it
- Come prepared
- It's better to say "not sure" or "don't know" than bullshit
- Don't write in the CV (or mention during the interview) things you don't want to be asked about
- Sound eager and enthusiastic about your profession because no one likes a downer
- the interview is a sales meeting, you are the goods, be sure to be a good salesman10
We'll it began as a hobby when I was little... I guess around 7-8 when we got our first computer, now it's my career.
Quite an impact eh?
Don't get mad / frustrated / angry at stupid people, you're just punishing yourself for their stupidity1
I'd finish msc and a PhD in software engineering, teach and research.
Best option retire to gaming :) full-time
So... I've been to the doctor's, I have a high blood pressure (I'm only 30 ffs).
She says I'm too grumpy, over thinking and should loose weight.
FML I'm gonna die young... At least the wife will get my life insurance...17
So I had a guy in my team, all day shouted "shitty code this, shitty code that"...
Today I had to fix some things, seen some really crappy code, said to myself "I've got to check who's the author of this beauty"... It was him... How the fuck can you shout shitty code on other peoples work when yours ain't better?!?6
During my undergraduate studies I had a Numerical analysis course. The lecturer is an old professor who was the dean of the faculty at the time, during all lessons he'd talk about his grand children and how the course is important to us the engineers. Not for a moment did he speak of the material it self... Came the test - 10 fucking questions of prove and solve in 3 hours. Had to learn the course from Indian fellows on YouTube...1
I wake up, take a look at the clock: 5:21.
The alarm is at 5:40.
Thanks fucking sleep cycle for waking me up to wake up the alarm clock... FUCK!!!2
Those little moments when you finish writing and refactoring the code and the result is elegant and just works
Having lots shitty comments and lots of shitty rants is like having passive income, the ++ come slowly but surely.
Always take the challenge.
Didn't know front end - took tasks that were front end oriented, took me longer but I learned.
Didn't know what goes on in the legacy code - took the tasks and dived right in the filth.
Fear the day the challenges will be over.14
What's with all the fucking reposts here???
@dfox is there a chance you add a locality hash algo on images and reject images that look the same?3
Here are some:
1. email filters for crap
2. know wtf is your current task and stay on it with minimal context switch
3. get a bot to automate some of your work (build, deploy, health, run tests) inside slack/rocket.chat/otjer-irc-like-software
1. take a screen shot of the desktop (wallpaper and icons)
2. take all icons and put them in a folder
3. set the screen shot as the wallpaper
4. hide the folder containing all the icons in the wallpaper
5. hide the task bar
My stupid TL was fighting for 20 min before begging me to fix my prank6
The good: dotnet core RTM
The bad: my previous shitty work place, their shitty product, the very shitty TL that had no fucking idea how to lead or manage the team
The ugly: the shit storm I dropped on TL, group leader, CEO/CTO when I left...
In my first place there was a guy, we'll call him S.
So S. was not very popular, he had an intimidating look all the time, wore workout dryfit clothes and seldomly smelt like he didn't take a shower in quite a long time. He has an iOS developer on my team. He was blazingly smart and called every code he saw garbage. Nice guy indeed :)
He was a fine guy after you got to know him and get accustomed to his weirdness... Smelly nonetheless :)2
A gene development framework that could:
* simulates the resulting proteins correctly (folding and all)
* debug genetic sequences/proteins
* Design injectors for gene sequences into an existing genetic sequence

@dfox I think that when using devRant from 2 mobile devices only the last one installed receives push notifications.
Noticed after installing devRant on my tablet, stopped receiving notifications on my phone.
