So my first job is also my current one. I am a computer science student and for my course we had to do a project for an actual client. The client was a consultancy company and after working my ass off, their software development partner decided to hire me and a classmate.
The company is pretty small (we are now with the 6 of us) and the general attitude is very nice. I've only been working there for a few weeks and I feel very welcome. The work isn't too hard (mainly web development with geographic features/data).
In rough lines the stack always consists of a Java Rest API and an Angular frontend that retrieved the data from the API.
So far I have learned a ton and I am really happy that I have this opportunity. Lunch is provided and we always eat together, we crack jokes, have fun, play games in the break. Coffee machine next to my desk. I'd love to work here all my life :d
Since I'm still in school I can't go to the office every day. Instead I am at the office every Monday and on other days I try to work from school or home.2
Based on some recent posts about automating repetitive tasks, I was wondering, what are some tasks that you have automated?
In my case, I guess it's not really automating, but I made my work simpler by creating a bunch of bash alias that take care of frequently occurring bugs or small tasks like fetching all git repos in a directory.10
Friend: "what is it that you do?"
Me: "mostly web development, I make websites"
Ex-friend: "oh web design, nice"
I'm not the only one that still regularly(daily) listens to the devranters spotify playlist, am I?
It's fricking great.7
The devRant user with the most +1s, @tahnik hnik, does hate PHP!!!
*just satire people, nothing to hate on here*10
You never know what you have till you lose it, I learned this after I launched my Ubuntu and I found my cursor to be absent :p
Am I the only one that does not even consider a freelance job if the description has bad/poor English and/or is written in all caps?4
@alexdovzhanyn and I just released the third episode of Runtimerror Live!
We talk about various things like the DynDDoS attack, recursion and much more.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed recording it :)1
I said to my partner "BABE!! There are bugs on the screen!!!"
When she say the actual screen she wasn't pleased .-.2
Grateful clients that weren't being an ass to begin with.
Or maybe the feeling when you make something really cool or that took a lot of work and it functions the way it's supposed too :)
I am roughly 12 hours away from a deadline that seemed pretty impossible.
I finally got everything to work, it seems I'm actually going to make it.
After so many hours of frustration, despair and walking in circles, it is finally fun again :)7
I normally don't post memes and stuff unless I made them myself for fear of being a repost and all that.
Was about to share one that I thought was worth the risk, but just as I refresh the feed, it shows up.
Glad I saved myself1
The next episode of the Runtimerror Live Podcast will be having our very own David and Tim as special guests.
Are there any questions that you would want us to ask them during the interview?
The episode will release tomorrow at 7 AM EST :)
(the first episode can be found here: https://runtimerror.com/podcast/... )4
So yeah, Java 9 got delayed by another 4 months...
I'm going to get my CompSci degree before it comes out, and I have two more years to go!!!
for everyone that likes podcasts, the new runtimerror live podcast released its first episode today :)

For anyone that wants to contribute to open source but doesn't know how, check out this post:
So I've sent emails to a couple of people (some of which I found on devRant) that were offering work. Typed a small story about myself and why I'd love to take the work.
No reply whatsoever.
Like, I get it if you don't want me, completely understand that, but how hard is it to let me know that.
Like c'mon guys, don't be a dick.
Disclaimers: I got the email address right, they did not land in my spam or whatever since I did receive an email from them in an earlier part of the correspondence. I did give them (what is in my opinion) a reasonable time to respond. They also didn't die or something since they are still active here...2
I just spend roughly 5 hours trying to get a Laravel Homestead up and running. Constantly jumping from one error to the other, getting nowhere.
Turns out that,
I NEVER FUCKING GENERATED A BLOODY SSH KEY
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
AN ENTIRE DAY WASTED
I swear, I'm way too junior for like 95% of this shit....5
This sounds pretty cool :)
For people that still remember floppies:
I feel bad when I commit too often, especially for little stuff. I'm afraid people will think I just do it to get a higher number of commits :/11
Since I have seen a number of people ranting about their old rants and the new +1 threshold, I'm posting this to clarify.
In the rules you can see that a post counts towards a certain threshold if the rant was posted after the threshold became active. If the threshold was increased after you posted your rant, the previous threshold will still count for that rant.
Hope this helps.
When it's weekend and you can spend more time on your personal projects but then you realize that an annoying family member is celebrating his birthday tomorrow
