The feeling when you can tell by their actions, the way they talk to others and the way they talk to you that your manager has genuine respect for you and what you do.
The main complaint I'm seeing about the iPhone is the price. I don't get it. If you can't afford it then don't get it haha.
The only reason I can think of for why people complain about it is because you want it but don't want to pay/ can't afford it so instead you say screw Apple.
What they say - "My Android only cost such and such and works perfect screw Apple and its $1000 phone"
What they mean - "Man I really want the new iPhone but I can't afford it/ I'm not going to spend that much"
I don't care if I go out and see a bottle of water for a $1000. Guess what, it's a bottle of water that cost a $1000. I mean it is what it is I'm not gonna buy it but I'm also not gonna complain either cause that's where they priced it so what does it matter to me?
Galaxy note 8 is $960 from Verizon btw. That $40 difference is brutal, screw Apple.

I have an excel sheet (1 of 2) and it has 54515 product codes inside.
I copy all of them to sublime, select all of the extra spaces at the end of each one and delete them.

This is real btw, and I am the one that said the bug hurts. I guess some things really are just for looks. True definition of "It's not a bug, it's a feature".8
This whole experience thing is really killing me.
"We like you a lot and you seem to have a solid understanding of the core concepts but you just lack the experience we need"
I've heard that basic response from plenty of different potential employers. Granted they could be lying just to be nice but that doesn't help the situation either.
Like tell me where I am lacking and where to improve.
Yea I can learn on my own but they're a lot of things I will never think about touching or gain any knowledge of because it's not something I may ever need to dive into during just everyday apps. There is a difference in building a hobby app to learn and what goes into a full blown application handling thousands of users and all the data that can come along with it. Not to mention the kind of things that can go wrong when you have thousands of users on your app at the same time all doing different things. That's not something I can just have experience with. If I could just get in somewhere I can prove myself because then I will be doing it each and everyday.
Gotta keep grinding though, I'll get something eventually.2
Statements I hear regularly:
"I've attached an example of an optimal solution (competition)"
"Well I like the way (competition) is doing this." - "I agree let's try and implement the same thing"
"Not sure how we should go about this" - "Check (competition) and see how they're doing it"
It's fine to observe the competition and their ideas, but please try and innovate and build on top of those ideas.
"I know you're busy with x, but could you help implement y? We need it done asap"
...a few days later
"Any update on x? No? What do you mean no? Well y can wait, lets finish x it shouldn't be taking this long"
Blisk.io for all you mobile devs out there. It still has a ways to go but it's worth checking out.6
"We need to implement this feature but I want it done right, for now though let's just throw it together so we can ship it."
