What the hell are Facebook playing at?

First WhatsApp and now oculus? What are they planning to build, a virtual reality messaging service?!

I think people enjoyed their high school life more than I did.

I think people are enjoying their college life more than I am now.

We shall win in the end!

There are definitely people who enjoyed high school and their college years more than I did. But now I get paid stupid amounts to write JavaScript with an awesome group of talented programmers, drink free beer every Friday and play FIFA 14 on the office PS4. whilst at least half of the people I mentioned earlier are now in either bartender jobs with low pay and dreadful hours or some kind of office job with reasonable pay and hours but fuck all satisfaction.

I think I won. I’m pretty sure you will too :)

WHAT WOULD POSSES YOU TO LEAVE GOOGLE FOR BING


Microsoft must have offered some pretty insane benefits to tempt someone away from all the perks you get as a Google employee…Although, apparently Google have a problem at the moment with what they’re calling “intellectual humility”, in as much as their employees, being the smartest programmers money can’t buy, are really awful at going to colleagues for help or admitting fault or even just standing up and saying “I don’t know the answer but it is worth knowing so I will try to find out and if you find out first please tell me what you found out” Which is a big problem for a programming company.

i love when the kids who spend the whole class fooling around get mad when they get a shitty grade it fuels my very being

As a kid who spent most of his school life clowning around I must point out that it was far more often that others would get mad at me for getting high grades than I would get mad for getting a low one…

So whitemanmarchprotestsigns is trending on twitter and I thought I’d share some of my favorites. Part 1 of 2.

I love the “I’m not paying for your food stamps with my hard earned inheritance” one.

I NEED TO COME UP WITH A TEAM NAME FOR MY COMPUTER FORENSICS COMPETITION. PLEASE HELP? ALSO I’M THE ONLY ONE ON THE TEAM. MORE QUESTION MARKS SO YOU CAN ANSWER?????

Bit by bit

If you have any questions about designing responsively, my inbox is always open - otherwise I could dig up a few resources that might be helpful.

I will certainly take you up on that, and anything to get me ‘started’ would be awesome.

Started putting my 50 Mbps upstream bandwidth to good use

Spun up a node instance so I could show my brother what I did to his site.  I didn’t get a “argh! wtf is this shit?!” so I’m assuming I’m on the right tracks.

I really need to get a book on responsive design or something…

I just can’t understand XML libs in Java.

They seem to all be either severely, deeply underfeatured, or to try at all costs to always return the most underfeatured XML… Thing they can return at any possible occasion.

org.w3c.dom.Element is a nice thing, except for being a bit verbose, but they…

I’m a JavaScript developer and I find your struggles hilarious.

Mind you, I have to write CSS from time to time so it’s not exactly cocktails and champagne on my side of the fence either…

I really want to believe that Java is a Serious Enterprise languages and that sometimes it is hard to use because an easier way would cause performance problems or encourage bad design practices.

but seriously

Sometimes it feels like the entire lang needs to be talked down with advice mallard macros with allcaps Impact captions reading “if you make a language tedious, people will use easy languages instead”

They will try to use regex to parse xml. They will use exceptions for control flow. They will have a one-key macro that prints a try-catch block for functions throw absolutely useless checked exceptions. They will do unorthodox things to get past final and private modifiers. They will use PHP, get angry at it then they will fucking use JavaScript on their severs.

Now if you excuse me, I have to call FactoryFactories to get Factories for instances of things that should be free functions in the first place.

Our backend is written in Java.

I think Java sucks less for backend but still…
