Backend colleague : the API is online. It's tested and working, you can start the dev.
Me trying to manually call the API with all the fields pre validated : "error : invalid fields"
EVERY. FUCKING. TIME !
To all the backend developers : we are NOT your personal testers, and we are NOT supposed to clean your mess because you're too lazy to FUCKING TEST THE HAPPY PATH!!!
Thank you for your consideration.7
University, first year. I went to my Java/OOP teacher's office to about the course (I had started programming C++ ~5 years ago).
I wanted to discuss the fact that some parts of the course seemed too theoretical for beginners in my opinion. Rookie mistake : do not criticize the cursus of an academic if you are in your first year, even when you are right. I learned it the hard way...
The teacher started to tell me that I was just a first-year student, I had no experience yada yada...
To that I replied "I'm doing C++ for 5 years. This is OOP so yeah I do know a little more than you think".
I will never forget his reply "LOL C++ is not Object-Oriented !"
I never went to his course after that. I learned a few years later that the teacher was a well-known a**hole along his peers and got fired by the University...41

Thank You gradle. This is very useful.... FML2
!rant, a success story.
I made a tool for a live streamer I like, for free. Something to find highlights in a VOD based on the chatlog.
It took me around 15h to make. It is a very simple electron app, the "valuable" code is ~70 lines.
I wasn't sure he would even bother to try it.
Anyways, I send it to him. 10 minutes later, the guy tells me that "this is amazing! You just saved me hours of derushing my streams ❤️"
That's great already, but it does not end there. A few minutes later he asks me "I know other streamers that would love it, can I share? And can I add you in our private discord?"
I have now a direct access to some of the best youtubers/streamers in my country 🤩.4
In 2020, the Earth slightly accelerated its spin.
For the first time in history, we need to add a *negative* leap second in our datetime systems.
Which means all the datetime libs need an update. I hope they anticipated this.20
I would build something to go in space. Probably in the energy or propulsion field.
I have zero Knowledge in those, but hey, unlimited time.4
My brother (not a dev) asked me for help for his A* algorithm he's trying to optimize.
I'm so proud5
I wanted to be able to physically start a home computer remotely.
- raspberry pi
- power relay to simulate the button
- a messenger chatbot linked to my account only
Now my local server is startable from anywhere14
The CI on Mac is broken. Again.
Next time I have a client that wants me to work with Apple, I'll double my rate.1
Me: okay brain! We had our morning coffee. We're ready to work. Lots of things to do today.
Brain: yay! I feel unstoppable! Can't wait for logic problems and amazing things we're going to build! What's the plan?
Me: great! Today we're going to work on the ios implementation of our app. Where should we start?
Not really a recruitment experience, but when I was a uni student, my IT teacher told me face to face that "C++ is not object oriented"7
Can anyone explain to me how is it possible that some devs like to work on macos?
This feels like a punishment to me. Every time.29
If you could choose one, what should happen in 2020 :
1. Apple let developer build iOS apps on non Apple machines
2. NPM/Maven/... run 10x faster
4. Governments stop trying to ruin encryption
5. Facebook splits
6. Quantum computers are being sold for consumer use
7. We have our first high - level generic AI working22
When the impostor syndrome hits me, I try to remember my achievements :
- I won a national coding contest when I was 18,
- I made and still maintain a complex app for 15 years, still actively used,
- I cannot count the number of languages I know; too many of them...
Not bragging here, btw. It's just important to actually enumerate your achievements.
If you get hit by the IS, just remember what you did 😉.12
Guys, I just received a *constructive* comment about a code of mine on StackOverflow.
WTF is going on?8
I have a unique opportunity to go to the websummit for peanuts.
As the staff requires us to install the websummit app before the event, I did yesterday....
Now I'm being literally spammed by every sales person on the app chat. Some even posted *before I registered* !
My god, they're everywhere !1
I always wondered how it would be to have English as mother tongue.
- Insects are causing problems in computers,
- you're using a glass door or a fruit for OS (well, some of us),
- the internet is made of people bringing your glass in the restaurant,
- you navigate on the spider's fiber,
That must feel weird considering it's the same words that you use for other parts of your life8
How to realize that experience matters : make a demo where all your code works, but everything fails because the other dev has done a shitty job 😅1
That moment when your manager tells you that he's okay with ultra-flexible schedules, because "I trusts you 100%. You proved your value, please come late if you prefer"
I love my job12
