if the documentation of a class just has a table of function params and return types without any example snippets of how to use them, fuck you and your entire stack and your entire docs.8
I start a project that follows the best architecture, best practices, etc..
i suddenly stop working on it until 3 days pre-deadline. at which point I end up building the shittiest, hackiest, thing that works enough to give to the client on time
now... Im just tired and bored of what i do. i had a very hectic year rewriting a core functionality in my company, it was full of optimizations, logic improvements and learning new things.
I took 10 days off hoping id come hating my job less. I learned kotlin and worked on a personal server side project with it during the vacation and honestly i loved it. I missed learning new languages and concepts.
so i thought, well if i enjoyed coding during the vacation then my burnout is cured right ? well once i went back to work today I felt like shit and couldn't do a thing. disgusted of the idea coding for my employer. Too tired to continue my personal project after 8 hours of my job
I guess im back to square one2
can you use elastic search as a search engine for your app ?
because i see several weak points in it.
the increased latency after every bulk uploading of docs, meaning u cant ensure fast response time for users
the inability to add synonyms without closing the index ? this is either downtime or ill have to replicate an index to update the original and then switch back to it !!
idk i feel i either must have wrong info or elastic is very inefficient. I might be wrong, not too experienced with it so if I am let me know of some good resources and workarounds that helped you3
200 searchable records (heavily searched and essential to the app) kept getting deleted from their index on our search engine.
we couldnt figure out why, but we wanted to resolve this quickly next time it happens so we got them back up, duplicated the index, and whenever we see they got deleted we resync them from the replica.
Eventually i found that there was a piece of code that updates the index by deleting everything from it and uploading everything back but it was buggy in doing the latter.3
I used to be excited from new languages coming out, new frameworks, etc...
ive been iny comfort zone using the same tech stack for 3 years tho. at this point trying to learn something new feels like "ew why isnt it as easy as X"1
i got into reddit recently (yes never tried reddit before). I love it. and i always loved devrant but now i cant stop wondering... couldnt have all this been replaced with a subreddit?
(i tried looking into tech subreddit, but still didn't find a tech ranting subreddit yet which im finding to be very odd)7
dont you just hate it when u want to hire devs but they ask for too much money so you decide to hire interns with experience ?
i became what i always despised7
company i work at was able to go public, and get listed on Nasdaq. i struggle to understand what that means for me. is anything gonna change? any advice?
i also find it baffling how u can be a public company and not give ur employees bonuses or raises for 3 years straight...1
some recruiter called (and woke my wife and me up) at 9 AM to tell me about a job opportunity that pays less than my current job and offers less remote work1
i have been applying for jobs recently, and after getting some HR interviews that evolved to tech interviews, i just cancelled them all...
Every company seems to have hacker rank, and online coding sessions as tech interview stages which really stress me out. Its like everyone thinks they are google and its ok to make people go theough this pressure to join them.
I dont mind being given 10 days to implement a complex project, after which im either in or not. But 20 mins to solve something online while either the interviewer is watching me or the automated test is waiting to filter my application out... i get anxiety just thinking about that..
so im gonna stick with my current job for now, and focus on building my own business slowly on the side. I really felt anxious because of those tech interviews these past weeks and i feel so much better after cancelling all of them.
if a decent company comes along with the project approach, id love to apply, but otherwise ill just stick to where I am for now. dont know if im being immature or irresponsible career wise or if this decision will blow up in my face
stay tune to find out !15
was asked if i want stock options during an interview so i said i just care about my salary
fuck my nervous-mode self2
My company is 8 days late to pay my salary.
The government (uae) recommended a 4.5 work week and my company hinted they wont abide by it
My company promised us bonuses and shares a year ago that we still didnt get
Altho we have been working remotely for 2 years due to covid, they are also trying to enforce going to the office...
Everything about the company is way too toxic
I want to leave ...
but all my applications get ghosted so i feel like a slave, its like i need this company otherwise im jobless. I haye this6
whats the best way to find and ask a marketing company to forward web development projects to my compay?4
should i establish my company in my own country even tho its in economic collapse.
or Georgia altho i know nothing about the country apart from a georgian lawyer who offered to register the company for me for 150$5

Some recruiter just reached out on LinkedIn to talk about a job opportunity with me.
I suggested he give me an idea of the pay range before i proceed and talk to anyone in the company so we dont waste eachothers time.
He said they can realistically pay X/month.
I explained that X is less than half my current salary (Y) so i wont proceed with this.
He replied by saying "oh nice, thats a great salary for your experience"
WTF is that supposed mean? did the bitch say im underqualified to get paid my current salary?10
go 3 years back and change my "lets not get involved in office politics" mindset.
Apparently, the good workers who arent besties with the founders or CTO dont get recognized for any promotions.2
Rage ? at work ?
my employer says I'm already toxic and ungrateful. If i get a third bad adjective ill be out of the door !
Judging by the work load and type im getting these days id say they are trying to get me to open that door and leave myself.
Hell, i would love to if i were not being ghosted by other companies or offered less compensation
one of the projects i maintain is something no one else knows much about in the company. its a huge project which maintaining is a nightmare that casued previous ppl to quit.
i have been vigilant for 1.5 years, finally they agreed to give me help. so we got another dev to help.
i was given a bunch of tasks, he was given a few as well. Now he convinced everyone in the company that he is the owner of the project...and everyone thinks i handed over the project to him...
why are people pieces of attention seeking shit ?2
my employer moved our company to the UAE. we were in a dying and collapsing country. Now we are in a stable and great place to be. We are even paid about double the average salary here.
He now seems to believe we all owe him. so every time a long weekend / holiday comes up he tells us you have a week to deliver X or ur career will be in danger.
I have been living the past 2 months with those continuous threats. In utter anxiety over possibly losing a job i love because of him.
Before the weekend started he tagged us and said you have 48 hours to fix X. and here i am on a weekend working 10 hours a day as a result.
But i have been pulling 2 day shifts in one day. spending nights, weekends and holidays working on the project he wants fixed. and he still seems very angry at me and my team all the time. very unappreciative. and just very hurtful.
im just scared shitless because i have a family i support and have Just moved to a new country and paid thousands of dollars to rent and furnish my new place. If i get fired now i would be ruined...4
i get on calls, tell devs what to do and slack off for the rest of the day just to earn my salary at the end of the month2
find that comfortable spot between
not having a manager and being free to do stuff as u see fit.
and having a dev manager who can take the blame when things go south1
so for the past yr i have been unofficially a lead on a project, i wasnt officially a lead but i was the one in control of everything in it and got to do decisions.
the project itself was horrible, and i was the only one who delved into it and understood it thats why everyone relied on me i guess.
recently PMs took charge of it after i told them i want to do something else. now they are bossing the hell out of me to finish their new stuff in that project. Now i hate every second of my job.
i regret telling them i am unhappy with the project because at least i was the only one responsible for it. maybe long term that would have been a good reason to be promoted. but now they took charge so im afraid i wont get promoted anytime soon.
fuck my life if that case i might as well start anew in another company2
Recently, i stopped liking the job that I used to love. not because i got bored of the work, but because of the company politics and drama.
All in all i feel very disrespected and treated as just a pawn to do whatever management feels like. I am tired of being promised things and management going back on them.
I have decided to try to make my own software company. as small as it would be. just anything where I am not anyone's slave or "employee". I want to be the boss for once... and not wait for someone to give me my salary and telling me to be thankful for it.
my main concern is gathering clients. If you can suggest a few ways in the comments id be grateful20
I would love to build apartment buildings and sell them.
but ofcourse id need a lot of money to start such a thing. hey what if i work as a dev for a while so i could afford that.
