Had to learn a new CSS framework in a few hours for a job interview / test.
Once I sent my code to them, they looked through it and told me it was amazing how quickly I could understand and learn how to use this new tool.
They hired me and today is my first day6
Unemployed since September
Depressed as fuck until last two weeks
Found a consulting agency which is actively trying to find me a good job.
Just finished a technical test for one of the biggest internet / mobile connection provider in France, feeling proud of myself and all I've accomplished while training alone totally sad for the past few months, not giving up.
Being a developer with very few experience is hard while giving up is easy.
But where's the challenge if you play the game in easy mode?
Decided to see things differently from now on, STAYING POSITIVE AT LEAST 90% OF TIMES.11
>We work on Github because it's easier
>One of us used git clone everytime I pushed a change
I mean it would be easier to just pull? I guess?
Tried to tell him but he just didn't care about what I was saying.5
I was having lunch today and I don't know why but I started wondering : what's the best meal to have while coding?
Very often, when I have a lot of stuff to do, I just eat while working. Mostly sandwiches or salads.
What about you? Do you ever eat while coding? What type of meal?5
tfw ((((((((((((((writing and presenting a thesis about Artificial Intelligence made me want to learn Lisp but then I remembered a friend wanting to kill himself everytime he tried to write something in Lisp))))))))))))))
A guy made fun of me for using Linux because I couldn't use Photoshop.
I made fun of him because he actually bought it.16
Finally moved away from windows 10
Now I'm a Linux user.
Well, I still have a few drivers issues to fix but it'll be OK15
Tfw I found out why virtualbox was running so slowly. Smh the video memory the virtual machine was allowed to use was stuck at 16Mo. THAT'S WHY.
Feels so weird to have a (nearly) smooth vm after struggling at 5fps for about six months.2
So because of depression and addiction to running I lost a lot of weight two years ago. My mom is sick of hearing people calling me "skeleton" and names like that so she bought me dumbbells to gain some muscles. Thing is : I'm too busy with code and videogames to train + I'm so bad at making schedules please send help21
I was just wondering why my school decided it was better to learn JQuery before JS. Not that I haven't used JS during my first intership but for the ones in my class who only learned PHP, wouldn't it be best to first learn JS? I mean I feel like it's basicnlogic to first learn how to use a language before learning it's frameworks / libraries.7
Step-dad : "Chrome is good"
Me : "Yeah but Firefox Quantum :/"
Step-dad : "That's a virus"
Only one exercise I failed so meh.
In all case : next week we get back to JS and that's my jam
Remember the last pixel art I made / posted here? Okay now listen it might seems crazy but yesterday I saw a Minecraft video about dude trolling little kids and he made a pixel art of Donald Trump. I tried to remake it just using my memory and HOLY SHIT I'M FAR FROM DISAPPOINTED.
It's not as pretty as the original Minecraft build because I only got one layer (like it's 2d, not 3d) but I tried my best.
I'll never stop, pixel art is so fucking fun.7
Help me someone messed with my git config file and I just commited by the name of "Little Fuckboi". It was a School repository, how do I ctrl+z my life?12
When you have to make a game for a school project but no one knows how to make proper sprites so you're just messing around trying to make stuff that looks decent but finally it ends up looking disgusting.32
Idk if you noticed but there's a "DevRant Meetup" thing going on and it looks fun : https://devrant.com/rants/971370/...
I don't know if I'll be able to go but it seemed like a fucking great idea + they will probably organise a Hackathon and because I lack skills and experiences this seems like a really nice idea + gaming tournament \o/4
Depression + sad music =
Naming your variables "dying_sounds_fun" and names like that
Forget about it
Commit + push it
"Er... Nelson? You wanna go grab a beer?"
Fail + weird explanations BUT free beer so it's not a complete failure. I guess.4
But tell me, I'm curious.
Is PHP going to die soon?
I've read that a lot lately.11
Usually, I work that way :
1. Read the documentation
2. Try stuff
3. Fuck it doesn't work.
4. Oh no 😢
5. THIS THING IS HORRIBLE I DON'T WANT TO WORK WITH IT SOMEONE HELP BEFORE I COMMIT SUICIDE
6. - "You should look at this :"
7. "WOW THANKS GOOD IDEA"
8. Yeay it works!
9. Oh wait, why does it work?
10. What the f*ck 🙃 it doesn't work anymore
11. Oh I get it
12. THIS THING IS AMAZING I SHOULD USE IT MORE OFTEN5
Finally, tomorrow, I'll finally get myself a 8gb ram.
Finally, I won't run my Virtual Machines in 3fps.
Finally, my running time in nodejs will be faster.
Finally, I'll be able to open Chrome, VsCode, Discord AND LMMS without torturing my laptop.
Finally, I won't have to play my favorite games in ultra low.
Finally, my suffering will end.
This is still not perfect tho, I'll probably end up buying a whole new PC in two years but for now it will be enough. I mean, I'm not sure switching from 4 to 8 will make that big of a difference (or is it? 🤔) and I wish I had enough slots to go from 4 to 16 but meh. Life's unfair.
Of course this is not going to make me a genuinely better dev but at least it will relieve a bit of the frustration that comes during the testing / running process.4
Hey did you know that I was supposed to have Linux/Git lessons which I really looked forward to get because I'd like to switch to linux in the next months? Guess what, my school don't have any teacher for it! It means : until they find one, lessons are cancelled.
I know I can learn everything with Google (just like I did with git, Python, JS, etc) but it would be greatto have a real teacher to give me a feedback on what I'm doing.
They are still looking for a teacher so if anyone wants to become a teacher~1
How it feels to be an intern : "Omg I helped people making an app in reactJS I feel like I improved a lot in the past months"
How it feels to come back at school : "omg I have trouble writing a simple algorithm I feel so dumb I'm the worst dev in the world"
That's the difference of working in a team with a great mood and close to no-stress AND studying while having to deal with social anxiety.
The conditions in which I work have a huge impact on the way I feel about myself, my skills and basically on my motivation.3
My uncle : "It's all about genetics, if you are born dumb, you'll die dumb"
Then it means I'll never be a good Dev? It doesn't matter how hard I'll work, I'll never improve? Does it means everything I'm doing is meaningless?
I don't want to believe that, I don't think you're "born" dumb or you can't improve. I hate when people try to take down your motivation.
So fuck you, I'll try to improve anyway.
No, I won't try, I'll do it, even if it takes me some time. That's the biggest lesson I learned during my internship.22
