Anonymous Confessions from Programmers.

Web development is a sugar coated turd! Just pile on some more librariesfor good measure, and add a good spray of the latest and greatest faddy framework, and there you go!

my boss hired me as a project manager, it's been a month but he hasn't assigned me a single task, all i do is drink coffee and plan for startup

I don't remember why I put a particular line in my program, but I leave it there because I'm paranoid.

My faith in my touch-typing is often shaken when I work in complete darkness with the backlight off. I mean, I can type plaintext just fine, but every once in a while I have to keyboard-navigate, press a shortcut combo, or numbers numbers, and for a moment I'm typing out encrypted passwords...

I've done jackshit this week. I don't foresee that changing for a few days either. Although it's not entirely my fault I am preparing to be fired.

one time at high school I implemented the rat/labyrinth problem using Java with ifs for each one of the 100 possibilities

Computers and coding are fun, but unhealthy. My back-neck gaah.

fantasy football hurr durrr

Why don't they just fucking pay us more to do more work instead of pushing shit back till next year. Would gladly put in another 10 hours a week or more for compensation that isn't trash.

I do not completely understand what's broken in my application, still I manage to fix it.

I just want to leave this job when I see "experienced" programmers do this: if (someBoolean == true) return true; else return false;

I worked on my forth compiler at work after I finished my assigned tasks. So much more interesting.

Operator overloading is fucking evil!

All works great except that damn first time :/

I always try to be helpful, respectful, and reliable when it comes to interacting with co-workers. I'm also praised for doing good work and getting a lot done. Yet most of my co-workers I don't hear from for weeks and no one even knows if they're working. We all get the same raises at the end of the year. Fuck this, I'm going to be invisible and coast.

I like this site because you can post anything. That's the way the internet should be.

I am a mercenary, just a hired keyboard gun. Now getting some good payment to keep you safe... like it or not, this is happening, i either make money out of it. Or step away... so i might make a profit any way. Dont worry. Not hurting nature. Only keeping you safe...

It feels like npm is just a new kind of DLL hell.

I have just started coding and it's not confusing or hard to understand but damn why is it so hard to stick to it is there some way I can focus better thx?

I don't understand technological progress. Why cannot we develop something once and for all, and use it forever, without upgrading again and again? Why our work never ends?

<p>Hello World!</p> Okay i'm a professional web developer, who's ready to hire me?

For the third time in 3 years, today I'm going back to continue learning JavaScript. Last year I stopped in the 8th chapter of Eloquent JS.

It's like nobody's taking the project seriously. It's not rocket science and it's not life or death but fuck me if you're not going to do anything why are you here?

I work from home and put off code reviews until the end of the day so I can drink as a way of coping with shitty PRs.
