“Over the weekend, GitHub reported some Dependabot alerts. Then, some intern, decided to upgrade all the node packages en masse. Now Azure DevOps refuses to allow deployment and I have to fix it. Why are they giving main branch access to these kids, I ask?”

“Did you hear that a new version of .NET is coming? I mean, after sleeping on .NET 4.X for years, I am glad that Microsoft is finally getting their game on with multiple versions. I mean, first there was .NET Core 1.0 followed quickly by 2.0. They moved super-fast to 3.0. God knows what happened to 5.0 but thank God, at least, 6.0 is LTS”

“I know you don't normally do it, but you have to start running all development react projects in HTTPS mode from now on. I don’t think it is required for all projects, but some authentication servers like Google and Facebook insist on a security certificate. Sure, ultimately, we are using a fake certificate which is preposterous, but, hey, that’s where we are.”

“So, Microsoft has Skype, Skype for Business, Teams, SharePoint, lync and now, at some point or the other, sad to admit, I have used all of them.”

“Originally, we started using SQLite, strictly for testing purposes. Then, our manager decided to just use it for production as well. We all warned him that we should at least migrate over to Azure SQL or mongo db or even mySQL. He did not listen. Now, we have hit the 2 GB limit, our webapp promptly crashed”

I work as a full-time freelance coding tutor. Hire me at UpWork or Fiverr or Stack Overflow. My personal website is here. Find more of my art at Behance and Unsplash. Also, I have a Podcast about everyday life. And, a 2nd Podcast, where I talk about freelancing.
