Having been a developer for a long time, I always go out of my way to make software easy for the user. I take feedback, try to not make assumptions that things are understood or readily apparent, and I make very detailed user guides with lots of ...

Users don't know what they want until you show it to them. And then it's wrong.

Been a while since anyone posted anything to this group. What's everyone working on? This week I've been working on setting up ADFS, linking it to Azure and migrating users.

So I was asked, again, to give a "high level" estimate of the hours it would take to create a guide for something very technical and totally unrelated to anything I know about. . . . had to explain the difference between a SWAG (Silly, Wild Ass ...

Dunno if anyone here was on GitHub pro for the unlimited private repos, but Nat just announced that that feature will be in the free version as well. You can downgrade yours and not lose that aspect, if you're stingy like me. $7 a month is $7 a ...

Just wondering if anyone uses Lisp or a variant these days. I imagine it's close to being dead, but when I had time to code just for fun (before my middle child - he's autistic - and awesome! - but takes up all my spare time) it was my favorite....

Details details. I always start on a project with an idea of what it will take. Then I realize there's this other case I didn't think about. But it's easy. Until I realize it entails this other case . . . And again . . . And . . . Boomm! 2 weeks...

How often do you get to use the S.O.L.I.D. principles in your daily work life? I recently showed someone that the Liskov Substitution Principle is actually a mathematically-well-defined concept, and that the first result he could find on Google was ...

Made a video for some stuff I'm working on related to game-development: Handling exporting for Android from the Godot development IDE. If you're at all interested in game dev and are looking for a powerful, easy-to-use engine for it, I highly ...

Ok so I want to admit up front that I am not very practiced in or good at coding ? but I do have a masters in GIS and developed a really neat web app. If any of you are good at app development, I’d love to show it to you. Everyone really liked it, ...

Any Go programmers here? I'm learning Go this week, and I have...feelings. It's pretty cool, actually - I'm really liking some of the new ( me) concurrency idioms - channels of channels, wild! But my native tongue is C++, so Go feels awfully ...

Saw a job posting with "XLM" experience required. Anybody heard of "XLM" or do you think it's a typo of XML?

I joined this group a while ago but never checked in. I don't seem to recognize any of you, which is surprising, because I've worked everywhere. I've just made my own indie game dev company and I'm working with an open-source engine called Godot. ...

As far as Firefox add-ons for agnostic.com I'm thinking about (and why I made @bing_ffao for testing and dev), this would include being able to customize alerts, as well as semi-automatic interactive features for chatrooms. I follow some folks ...

I don't consider myself much of a coder, but more of a hobbyist I suppose. With one exception, coding isn't something I've done for a living. The exception was an inventory database project that got killed. I have one Firefox add-on published: ...

So JavaScript... I'm many years out of practice at real, proper web coding, but I've had to get back into it to make the website for my comic... I mean, I could have made a separate HTML doc for every comic... I didn't fancy that, though. So I've...

I've been on the project from hell for the past 5 months at work and I just finished the release. I've put in probably 1 month, at least, of green time that I won't get paid for since I'm salaried. I maxed out my comp time in the first week and have ...

Don't you hate it when you're debugging, can't figure out the issue, make a code change out of desperation and redeploy. Then you find an issue with your configuration data and realize that this may have been the issue all along. But you're not ...
