Started a new job as a dev. First days revealed no local admin rights, no right to use Linux locally and a very limited set of Software. Negotiated compromise to get a remote VM with Linux and a user who is part of sudo. VM turned out to be isolated by proxy, so I can not install anything new. At least Docker is pre-installed and I hoped it could work out. But guess what no access to dockerhub and I can not pull any images. Admin told me to copy manually the images with scp.
I'd never thought that there could be any companies out there who treats devs like that. What puzzles me most, there're lot of devs staying with that company for years, even decades already and they're good guys, please don't get me wrong.
Did you encounter anything like that? Could you make any difference there, where you met anything like it.
I reached the point after 3 weeks where I do not think I can make any difference and when it'll take ages to move people and company policy.
I do not want to give up, but I fear it is pointless to fight for change there. I am out of options and about to leave asap. Can you recommend me anything else?
Thanks in advance and for your time :)
Felt good to write it down.13
Did you ever forgot the dot at the very end of docker build command, when the Dockerfile is in the current directory? Best circumstamces when it happens in travis.yml (yeah, forgott a dot here as well) and like always the first build there fails :D
Did ever the first build in a CI worked out for you?1
Guess I'm getting old (school) outputting foo, bar and baz for testing purpose. Does anyone still using those too?5
When did you see your project manager making that face the last time? Me, not that long time ago... :D
This cool devrant stickers and the urge to get those remembers me a couple of scenes from Better Call Saul I recently watched - https://m.youtube.com/watch/...
Especially the last line "you must have the stickers or you won't..." :D
Sorry, a little off-topic but perhaps you know the show.
What shows do you like most?2
Since some weeks I've got trouble sleeping, so I put the source code of sleep from the coreutils under my pillow.
Yeah, it worked (:
Recently we've checked /sprint in HipChat to test batching of sprint status messages. For testing we wrote what first poped into our minds.
One Dev wrote /sprint We're on schedule
Another wrote /sprint Everything is broken, help
How different tests and first thoughts about progress sometimes can be?1
