Freaking annoyed by a Github project with `tests passed` badge, but when I submit a PR, nothing is run and the project owner just has to merge it. That's not the meaning of that freaking badge. Also: fix your workflow, three PRs open with the least recent being from march.1
When I was in uni (software dev), I'd have a subject where we would look at privacy. We needed to create a log with all kinds of traces we would leave behind: checking in at public transportation, paying with debit card at the store and so on. I was so lazy and I knew I wasn't going to get it done if I had to write down everything.
So I created an app in Swift 1, that would connect to Parse (RIP). That made me realize how awesome iOS development is, and made me continue my pursuit of knowledge. :)
Being a perfectionist, I don't even recall when I was being lazy, hehe. I think I might care too much about my work.1
Situation: I'm a junior, working at company X since about the start of this year. We have a mixed team of native Android and native iOS developers. The architectural design decision was to build a separate iOS and a separate Android app.
Recently, during a problem solve session with other teams, other developers were complaining: why not use React Native, why not use Xamarin, why not use PhoneGap.
I'm so sick of this shit, if you have your users in mind, if you care about UX and UI and if you care about building an actually good app, GO NATIVE.5
