Overheard in Chingu

A: “Hey, but your foot is bleeding” B: “Who cares! Do you see this dead pixel?? Do YOU SEE IT?”

I tripped, fell down the stairs, and broke a wrist once after receiving an early morning support call from the Help Desk. Does that count as a Developer injury?

Worst injury I’ll get is like.. dropping a computer over my foot In which case, I’ll prob. check the PC before my own foot.

Developer priorities

Hello everyone. Great day to you

guess who saw a cute baby today

NOT programming related at all, but randomly found this emotional/inspirational video on Youtube, in Danish. Turns out that there’s an English version. Also, lets you hear what Danish sounds like

Just wanted to share it

I am SO happy today I’ve been anxious a while about the new job, since it said I had to have some extend of backend knowledge. Got word from future team lead today that they generally don’t want me to do any backend, since they “have people who loves that weird stuff”. I just have to know how data is passed around etc. — nothing more

I did warn them in advance that I really knew 0 backend stuff, and they said it was fine .. Was still a bit anxious though


that weird stuff?

how dare they

Made me laugh a little. Frontend team lead with big F

Resources of the Week


Eric Zumwalt kindly shared this resource with the community:

“This came in handy when trying to help others visualize Git It does not allow for things like ‘git status’, but is great for understanding commits, branches, merging, and rebase”
