We're building a web app for a customer, he wants us to build it in Oracle Apex. I've had some experience in Apex, and I found it to be terrible.
Searching online I've either found very outdated or biased reports about using it in a business context.
Do you have experience with it, or know why we shouldn't use it?
.Net is masterrace.
C# gives me frequent orgasms.
Use SQL Server for DB, add to that parallel querying and NoSQL capabilities.
Incredible development speed with EF
Incredebly powerful web framework...check
AI and neural networks...check
If you want to do some of that functional programming F# is the language for you.
And the best thing: .Net core runs on Linux too10
I fucking hate bereaucrats, those stupid fucking losers with a bus driver complex have nothing better to do than to make life miserable for everyone else.
You regulate when I'm allowed to work, open business, what I'm allowed to eat, drink, do in my own house. If I don't read you're senseless 300 page data protection acts, I'm going to jail for a 1k side project. If I visit a website, I have to fight through another 300 pages of cookie-red-tape.
I just want to 3D print a gun and start shooting (hi NSA)1
I feel like the better you are technically, the worse you'll fare career wise. I've seen it, people who are really good at software engineering rarely make much money. On the other hand, people who have a 'technical background', and go into management, do far better.
It's almost as the transferable skills from I.T. pay far better than the actual I.T. skills themselves.
There should be a NGO for properly destroying scammers. And I'm not talking about documenting the scams. I'm talking about having the resources to deny them service, find their identities and report them to authorities. Even meddle with their computers using malware.
These people are preying on mostly elderly people and stealing their money.3
What do you think of my setup?
I carry a strong laptop for heavy lifting and an iPad for RDP'ing into either my laptop or cloud hosted VM's.
This setup is obviously optimized for mobility, if I had a stable place to work, I'd use a desktop with multiple screens.
Does anyone else have the problem of of offensive naming conventions? It's just a habit of mine that I name everything after something afwul, just for the lolz.
The internet has interesting quirks.
If someone offers me something for "FREE", I immediately close the tab. On the other hand if it's for "free", I might consider it.
I don't know why marketers think "FREE" works on customers.4
I was sick the entire week, told my boss about it. I was really enthusiastic about the work and also didn't want to let other people down, so I went, even though I didn't have to.
Today this asshole screams at me for being late and goes on about the broken trust between us etc.
This motherfucker. I showed up, for a whole week, in pain, despite not having to do so. I had to punch the bathroom walls for ten minutes in order to get rid of all the anger.
Never do more than required, it will absolutely come back to hit you.5
Why the fuck is it, that American online companies ONLY ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS
WHY NOT JUST DEMAND FUCKING CHECKS FOR PAYMENT54
Had a database engineer tell me that he put a minimal delay of 15 seconds on every query, so that people don't come complaining to him that the database takes longer than usual6
Can we all take a moment to appreciate what a complete mess web technologies are.
We're abusing a markup language made for scientific writing, by styling it with css and in order to make it dynamic somehow, we run a weird ass scripting language on the clientside.
Because nobody really wants to use this burning garbage can, some of us invented web frameworks.
And let's not get started on php...14
