Overheard in Chingu
your coolness is so high it caused an integer overflow which makes it appear as though it is low but in reality your coolness just could not fit inside the bounds of the variable type that holds it
The first shirt we wear. The other shirts, we hold in our hearts….
what! your country is also giving versions to lockdowns?
well they call it “Lockdown Light” so it’s more like a demo version
listen….i was promised certain things when i decided to containerize the apps
because of lockdown 2.0 we have 2 more delivery services around now
so young — young like a baby
Emergency can be anything. Earthquakes, fire or low battery
Hey you guys working on the Chingu-quiz or other projects, who will get the longest row of t-shirts. (It has to be divided by 4 i.e. 12 PR / 4 = 3 T-shirts). I know it won’t be me, Who is the hot-shot Chinguee, wanna play?
My biggest goal currently is to get a job as a Junior Developer, having the chance to put what I’ve learnt in real-world application and having the opportunity to grow with a team.
This is the biggest dataset my solver is able to compute currently. 500 facilities gives me “No memory available”. I need to optimise that, and also the time needs to be optimised, took 5 mins to reach this.

To think about: Are You Showing Up at the Table?
The start of a project comes with a lot of excitement and energy. But as it progresses some of the novelty wears off and we notice that members of a team sometimes loose some of their enthusiasm.
In this respect it’s just like starting a new job. You eager at the beginning because its something new, but over time it becomes routine.
In the middle sprints we often see team members who don’t communicate with one another, don’t complete the tasks they’ve agreed to finish, and don’t show up for team meetings. These are all danger signals for the team since they directly impact your ability to finish your project.
As a Team Member you’ve made a commitment to not just finish the project, but to do so in a way that you can use the experience you gain when to boost your career. For this reason it’s important to be able to point to every project as proof that you are:
- Results-oriented and dedicated to finishing what you start
- Willing to invest in improving your knowledge and value as a Developer
- Committed to being not just a great Developer, but a great team member
- A leader and not just a follower
