Fuck me and fuck merges and fuck conflicts!!!
I still love you Git but sometimes you are a harsh mistress.6
Over heard my coworkers talk about my open source project: "ya that's the best there is"
I am just so happy 😊😊😊4
Maybe I'll get some decent advice from a rampant over simplification...
2 job offers, assume compensation is close enough to not matter much.
Pride & Ambition/Opportunties
Work-life balance & Time
How would you compare them, and where is the tipping point?
I'm feeling burnt out at the moment, which is screaming to pick the second, but... I can't let go of the first.10
Last Friday a coworker asked me what a Singleton is.
He graduated 3 years ago.
I think we have to improve our hiring process.16
Anyone here play an instrument (yes, singing counts you dim wits)? Almost 85% of my colleagues do, and i was wondering if it holds true here...11
Unintentionally Hilarious joke at work yesterday.
We were doing some data analysis, and I had to dump some stuff into a table for my colleague. So I ran the script and went to the bathroom (no.2).
When I came back, they asked me if the dump is done. And I said without thinking: "I just went." 😂4
She explained to me what “algorithm“ is. I was 14. Instant love for the domain. In 2 days, I knew exactly what I want to do with my life1
The man who designed C# 🤘
I don't think I've seen him mentioned around here.
The world is full of write-only devs. People who never look at the code they create or change.
That's the only explanantion I can find for the fact that everytime I look into some code I have never touched or haven't seen for a while, I instantly spot at least one error that is so elementary, that there is absolutely no chance to miss it.3
Have you ever declined a job offer?
I had an interview a couple weeks ago, got an offer, but I had to decline because the salary was too low.
It would have been my first full time job (after several internships).
I'm not completely sure if I made the right choice. The team was really small, and it felt like I would have had to handle too much other than the responsibilities of my role.
And I have another interview tomorrow. I hope it goes well.
Meanwhile, I'm working as a developer consultant for a client. I'm learning a lot doing that, so that's going well. :)8
Me: We should use typescript to enhance our readability and productivity.
(A month later)
Too many catch, race conditions and hidden bugs left. 5 hours of debugging18
Me: *selects text, Ctrl+c*
Me: *places cursor in next text box, Ctrl+v*
Computer: *does nothing*
Me: *selects text again, presses CTRL+C WITH FORCE*
Me: *places cursor in next text box again, presses CTRL+V WITH FORCE*
Me: "That's what I thought."20
Real question here.
Do you feel like you're being paid enough?
If you're senior devs, did you also get paid enough when you were a junior?17
I HATE when a request for a change or a new feature comes like a bug feedback, as if it's your fault
"I clicked this, but this behavior that we didn't agree on didn't happen!! Fix it!"
Today after 1 year of taking shit I sat down with my manager and completely tore the whole fucking company apart.
I absolutely slammed my colleagues, obliterated my team lead, went on and on about how no one understands the basics and how everything we have is copy paste procedural code and the only way to fix what we have is to delete it. I then insinuated I want to quit because I cba with the struggle anymore.
Result? Fat promotion. Not sure what just happened here lmao.12
After a year and a half of unemployment and near depression, multiple rejections and turmoil from within my family, I finally got a job!
Never give up, just believe in yourself and in the universe.
Onwards and upwards!12
Security decided to update our PCs with endpoint protection. It's blocking all connections to and from localhost.
It's been a productive day.
Such enterprise. Much security.4
I told my boss I'd been offered a job somewhere else with a better position and pay and he presented a reasonable counter-offer in under two hours which included an on-paper promotion and matching payrise.
I stayed. 🙃12
Why don’t you like sharing your salary with coworkers? I tell people exactly what I am paid if the conversation comes up. It helps to know where you stand, i.e. if you’re being under paid or if you should ask for more in the next review cycle.7
Boss throwing up a huge source code that I didn't see before.
Boss: Hey, this is an app from a contractor to do XYZ.
Me: Oh, okay.. so?
Boss: You will continue the code and the maintenance now. How much time do you need to implement X feature?
Me: I need to see the code first, can't say nothing now.
Boss: ok I need estimation now.
Me: *getting nervous* I need to see the fuckening code first. if you want estimation now I would say one year..
My job title should be Fireman.
Seriously, the only reason I think my boss makes such stupid fucking decisions and starts fires everywhere is because he knows I have to and can put them out.
Infuriatingly blood boiling or compliment? Can’t decide...8
The fact that my boss knows I'm on devRant means, that I can't rant about anything, that can be linked to my workplace or current assignments.12
