Anonymous Confessions from Programmers.

I used a raspberry pi to repeat the digits of pi forever

When he forks ur repo and u spoon his b****

This man has a treadmill desk and runs at speed 6 uphill all day. Wtf!

I randomly choose a random number generator to generate a random number so that I'm one step closer to being random.

Wow, I do not fit in well at this job.

Sometimes I overengineer stuff to show off how good I am...

College kid here, I have a presentation for my final project of an app tomorrow morning, I only have a disfunctional authentication and 17 hours to build it. Wish me luck.

I got fired after two months. This is the second job in a row where I got fired. I think they have found out I was an impostor. What was the point trying to get better at programming? All those wasted nights analysing algorithms and data structures for nothing! It is hardly needed in the real life. You need superhuman skills for dealing with the mess and complexity. Programming is definitely not for me.

The one clear difference between being a lead, and being under a lead, is that when you are the lead, you shouldn't be getting "shit" done anymore. You should be empowering your team. -Confession: Now I know.

As long as I live under the capitalistic system, I expect to have my life influenced by the demands of moneyed people. But I will be damned if I propose to be at the beck and call of every itinerant scoundrel who has two cents to invest in a postage stamp. This, sir, is my resignation.”

My boss saves all files directly to his desktop and dumps them into a subfolder when the screen is too full. His subfolders are now at the point of covering 25% of his screen. What the actual fuck.

There's a really weird vibe at my new job.... I was wondering if they just didn't like me or something. I finally had a candid conversation with a co-worker, he said Man it's because they have no clue what to do. It turns out the manager came over to IT from marketing and the director came from shop floor operations. I'm used to working for bosses that have programming experience, this project is probably going to crash and burn because I can't do all the coding and management too, even if I worked around the clock.

how the fuck to iterate over fucking object typescript!!!

So i work at a gov contract. Recently stage 2 of the project was almost not going to happen. So I started applying for jobs before the current contract was over. I have had weeks of not giving an F. Had some pretty good interviews and was ready to leave... Today as I was going to get ready to go for another interview, the big manager comes and hands me a contract for a whole new year... All the faggots staying late and suffering still waiting for renewal, while me, your favourite pot smoker. Got renewed and now will have to choose what employer is not worthy of my holly code...

Turn the ringer on your goddamn phone off.

Game of Thrones is garbage. Fucking bringing gender into that show. Great! They should have done the my sex junk song too.

Listen to the $NVAX webcast after hours today. Should be a blood bath one way or another. Fucking hell if the results are bad, LOOOOL

I've never used a framework in my life.

So, I had to max out my allowed overtime because you wanted it done ASAP, but on the other hand you couldn't be bothered to implement your part, and now we are late. But some how it's my fault. Fuck me, yes ?

I like to pretend I am a full stack dev. I invest time in learning these languages and frameworks, buying books and subscriptions to e-learning sites, building applications for my portfolio, spending hours upon hours reworking old code, doing small projects for friends, acting like I can actually be something. But it's all a lie. I can't step foot inside an office because of my crippling anxiety disorder. Even the thought makes me feel ill. I wish I didn't know it was a lie. A tremendous amount of progress can be accomplished in ignorance.

Ever happened to you, that you just sitting and staring at your monitor, and couldn't write any code? No matter how hard I try, I just can't write anything today... (feeling useless)

I want to code. Neo

Why am I such an unhappy person? Why am I not fucking normal. It's 3am and I have failed to sleep because I am so anxious about my life. Someone please kill me.
