I have an insatiable desire to do C++.
I don't know why.
I've been doing higher level C#, but for some reason I want to go deeper, lower level, to the world of optimization and speed.
Are C++ codebases even good?
Or are they just spaghetti monstrosities leaking everywhere?
I've never even seen a production C++ codebase.
If you do C++ professionally, can you share a bit of your experience?20
2 years ago, I was working and studying at the same time.
I decided to drop my degree 2nd year because I would not work with all those subjects, being that I was just doing web dev.
Also, I had already lost 4 years doing nothing before starting to work.
Now I'm working on an app for a networking company, as a backend developer, which is basically based on graphs and other complex data structures.
Guess what I'll be start studying this weekend!4
Remember, if you're doing an if/switch block with hardcoded database keys, use a table to connect that data instead!6
What the fuck is it with the fucking giant spaghetti files?
C'mon, unique 20000+ CSS file for the entire platform, multiple 10000+ c# "multi-business" logic files, code repeated everywhere, not to speak about most of the business logic being on these hundreds of massive SQL SPs...
On every single client, from banks to government 🤬4
Today my mother sent me a text message asking me how my day was going.
I told her that I was working with LaTeX.
When she got home she looked very concerned.2
Today I broke the quarantine to buy an HDMI splitter.
Turns out the secondary monitor I have is old as fuck so I can not extend the display, only duplicate 🤦🏼♂️
50€ to the garbage.
At least I bought a big ethernet cable to plug it on my PC and now I have 120mbps instead of the 2/3 I had on WiFi14
I'm loving it!
The best thing about it is that it's less of everything.
I save 2h of commute.
I can listen to music on my speakers with subwoofers to hear that bass.
I can take the pauses I want without anyone staring at me negatively, as long as I'm productive of course.
Less chances of getting the virus (the only risk is my mother who is a nurse).
I can be less apart from my family.
Less money on gasoline.
I think this virus outbreak is going to fundamentally change the way we do a lot of things.
Things like work (remote work), shopping online, digital money, and even the educational system (finally).
I hope everyone is well and stays well.14
I did it! Finally!
Here's my story.
I rage quit from my last company in October. I got the job from a college internship. I was working 10 hours a day, sometimes more. Seriously underpaid. All my colleagues and friends left the company for the same reasons.
I started my CS degree.
Last month my parents told me I needed to get a job.
I started seeing what I wanted to do. I selected 2 or 3 companies I really wanted to work for, but there was that one I wanted the most.
I've interviewed for that one and one more. Both went very well.
One week passed and I started to get very nervous because they didn't say anything. I thought it was because of the gap I had and because there was 90 applications only on LinkedIn.
So I sent 12 more CVs.
I have a lot of interviews now. I even scheduled one today for tomorrow.
And today I got the call!!!
They matched what I wanted and a bit more!
The first job I got on my own, with 8 months of professional experience.
I guess now I have to call all the others to tell them I will not accept or go to other interviews
How many CVs have you sent to get your first developer job?
Also, if you have more experience, how many did you sent to get your current one?16
**There should be a search bar on DevRant to search for already answered questions.**
I wanted to ask the community what Linux distro I should use and I know there are tons of questions like this one.
I want something fast, without bloatware and easy to use/fast to set-up, etc.
I'm using Linux Mint, which I quite like, but I just wanted to know if there's something better (e.g: Manjaro, maybe?)
Thank you and I'm sorry for the duplicate question.15

The code that powers super intelligent AI with consciousness is... React?
Strange looking JS thought12
I thought my project's colleague were different from everyone else. I was wrong. Just another sheep like all the others. Last week he took credit for my work. And I think he even believed in what he was saying. He was talking to our supervisor saying he solved the error, all happy, but it was me...
Two weeks ago we went on a night out and, drunk, he said that one of the supervisors asked him if he wants to go to team leader, become a senior. He knows 10% of what I know! I'm always helping him and I will not continue doing his work!
Should I find another job?
I told my supervisor and the director I was going to stay, but I don't think I want to, if they put him as a senior while I am a junior.5
I feel like having an adventure!
I have an old laptop of mine that I used for uni.
I am going to format it and install Linux to try it out! 😀
Maybe Mint(?), as I hear nice things about it14
1) It's mentally challenging. You solve problems all day and you have a lot of solutions to the same problem. Some better, some worse.
2) I am always learning new stuff, even from older technologies sometimes. I don't (and never) imagine myself on a desk doing the same thing over and over again (ex: accountant, politician, etc.)
3) I love being on the cutting edge. The future. In the vanguard of our present and future times (this one was poetic)
Got a question for you all.
I'M currently doing fullstack .NET for banks, but I want to continue my studies this year, so my idea is to take the classes at night and work remotely at day.
My supervisor told me that he doesn't know if it's possible and he says that he's going to talk to the director.
In the meantime, I started searching and I found a portuguese blockchain company. It's fullstack JS/TS, Node.js API's, which I know and like, and React or Angular. They asked me for a challenge project and are saying 50% remote, nice compensation, equity and tokens (I think the compensation would be bigger than my current or future position).
Would you take this?
I'M kinda scared about going to a complete new technology.
I'd like to work with .NET in the future...16
So, I'm an intern and I'm always eager to learn new things and do new things. I want to give all the knowledge I have to improve the projects at work.
I give a lot of opinions about the projects I'm working. Ways to improve it. I sometimes ask why somethings where done that way, to understand.
My supervisors don't like that.
Sometimes I get very anxious because my life is very fucked up in the moment.
I think no one there likes me.
It's funny because in one of the meetings we had about this at some point in the conversation, I don't remember why, they said that "people are not robots", "people have feelings".
But they are always mad about something I said or asked (meanwhile, everyone else are saying bad things about the projects, about other people, even about HR).
I guess people need to unload their stress into someone.
I just want to finish this internship, get my fucking grade, and get out of this fucking company.
I'm thinking about turning myself into a robot.
A human robot.
I'm only going to say: yes, ok, sure, yes sir, hello, goodbye.
Just work like a robot like they want.4
