Shows the Silver Award... and that's it.

When you come across a feel-good thing.










  1. I do have mild-ish social anxiety(some would say it’s not mild but I’m in denial haha). My anxiety is different though because although I’m very nervous before interviews, I’m way more confident during them and during public speaking events. I’m very good at performing, and knowing that has allowed me to push through.

  2. I’m gonna be honest, you kinda went on a rant for a bit there and I lost you at you not liking cs cus you’re social.

  3. What happened? Is it that FB isn't all that it was cracked up to be? Or you just regret burning that bridge?

  4. Bottom left looks like John Boyega and Vincent D'Onofrio

  5. Bottom left looked like clean shaven Chris tucker to me

  6. If your apartment manager has access to the circuit breaker / electrical panel they can turn off your apartments power. Unfortunately this turns off your fridge but that better than starting a fire. Fortunately, the fridge might have its own breaker.

  7. That’s a really good idea. I’ll call my apartment first thing in the morning to see if they’ll do that.

  9. It’s safe, don’t worry. People use these cookers to make black garlic over weeks. I’ve personally seen it run for days at a time without problems. Maybe there is a slight danger of something bad happening like 4 percent of the time with cheaper cookers, but not this. Others on this thread overestimate the risk. I’m more concerned about the cooker itself.

  10. LC contests are way harder than interviews. Those are usually for competitive programmers who do LC style questions 24/7.

  11. I got two from a friend—that was good enough for me.

  12. This line of thinking is flawed because you're looking at videos as flashpoints without weighting.

  13. Exactly. I feel like including the first two week’s performance as well as a separate graph may help.

  14. I feel like that couch is one that can either look great or look terrible depending on the context. You’ve made it look great. I like it

  15. Maybe, I feel like it depends on how you say it. Also if other people are on board with me, then maybe. My manager is, just a few others(including our senior dev) isn’t. I’m not going to go too hard with my proposal if I go for it.

  16. Depends, sometimes it could be framework specific things that are common knowledge.

  17. I think there isn’t, yeah. I just talked with a coworker and she helped me so, so much. One of the biggest points of confusion was the location of an API endpoint as they are using a framework that’s internal to my company. I do think it would be helpful to have the name of the function and the location of the function inside onboarding as it’s the most important piece of code in our entire project.

  18. I learned my worth, how to relax, and how much value I really bring to a company. It was a project that took six months and I had only been working professionally for about 3 years at that time, so I was a bit anxious. I made the deadline I estimated, but was upset about a bug that required a follow-up deploy (one week later). I apologized to my manager. His reply rocked my world and changed my perspective for life. He said, "Dude relax. You just spent six months automating a process that saves the bank $64M EVERY YEAR. Did you see any of that? The company will be fine. You did a great job."

  19. So they didn’t reward you at all? At least a promotion? I’ve been wondering how to leverage good ideas in a tech company.

  20. This was at Bank of America. It was my first project for them. I was rewarded with a good bonus at the end of the fiscal. Other than that I wouldn't know. The challenges dried up and I moved on to bigger and better things for my career. By the time I left I was a Tech Lead for several projects over 20 engineers and architecting many of our new solutions in that space. Did they reward me with anything? Yes, bigger projects that built my resume for the next place.

  21. Career progression is a valid metric, thanks for that info.

  22. Heck they don't even bother to see yo face before a Leetcode medium these days and mastering those in under 30 minutes takes a lot of practice and that's why the hate

  23. True, but at least you know what’s coming. Imagine only having to study algorithms for two months in order to double your salary. That’s what LC enables. Very few things have a return on investment as high with minimal upfront payment as LC.

  24. It's ludicrous to say that you are spending too much time looking for deals. The reason I say this is that it's not like you are going to be buying 4,384 chairs, 2,428 beds, etc.

  25. Explanation for chair: I did end up finding a herman Miller aeron for 150 dollars, putting it in the same price range as an office chair from target. I’d argue it’s more wasteful buying a different budget chair since that has no resale value and you don’t get the benefits of owning a chair that saves your back. I should also say I wfh and program 8 hours a day, which means I’m sitting in this for a good deal of my life. I can sell this chair whenever I want for the same price if not more(resale is generally 350 dollars), so it’s like either I’m buying a quality chair that’ll last me the majority of my career, or I’m renting an amazing chair for free if I decide to sell.

  26. Maybe you could set a timer me limit for yourself per week?

  27. Good tip, I may try that next time I need something!

  28. Nevermind--I found the source code here:

  29. Nevermind--I found the source code here:

  30. There seems to be a v8 branch in the git, you could check there.

  31. Thank you! I’ll check that out.

  32. Did you just develop this obsession after you moved into your apartment? I chalk this up to simply being excited and focusing on furnishing your new place. I spent an inordinate amount of time finding parts and deals when I built my first PC. After it was done I stopped looking at computer parts altogether.

  33. Fair—I just noticed a change in my behavior and that often times, I would regret spending so much time looking for deals after I did. I appreciate that perspective, thanks 👍

  35. I'd put my bed towards the top left, the desk in the top right corner, then the tv on the right wall with the couch facing it. You can always use shelving to divide up your space as someone else mentioned, plus extra storage.

  36. To me, the wardrobe dictates your bedroom area is to the left, and the kitchen dictates your living area is to the right. Id definitely try to keep it this way to enhance the flow of the space.

  37. Ah please disregard my last comment—thanks for the explanation. I’ll keep your suggestion in mind!

  38. It’s interesting—everyone is suggesting I put my bed in the top left. So did my mom. Currently, my bed is in the top right and my computer is in the top left. Is there any particular reason why people gravitate towards the top left choice?

  39. Pov: you're doing math with your dad

  40. Damn this seems like a common and messed up occurrence where dads get angry at their sons/daughters for being “bad” at math. IMO there are so many students that ended up being unable to reach their full potential in math because of this.

  41. Never said I didn’t know how to code. This is my first job out of college—I know my code will be messier than my seniors starting out. New grad positions care more about problem solving ability than acquired knowledge.

  42. I’d do half and half. No point in grinding leetcode if you can’t demonstrate your worth to employers.

  43. I like it! Where did you find the rug and furniture?

  44. Very much this. You can rent it long term or Airbnb it and have a complete separate guest space when you need it. When you start a family in the future, you’ll have a separate space for parents to stay. Eventually you can sell it, turn both sides in to an investment property, or even renovate and turn it in to a single home.

  45. I’m confused though, couldn’t you do the same thing with a 4 BR? In fact, possibly more effectively? You could potentially even rent out each room of the entire house and live somewhere else on rent, having your tenants offset the cost.

  46. Yeah, but by coding individually you can parallelize tasks thereby increasing output. I’m generally against pair programming in a work setting btw(all for it when you’re in an academic setting)

  47. I feel bad for those in this position who don't quite have the raw brain horsepower to learn fast but try to make up for it with hard work. This career will be a very tough slog for those folks because it is a career where skills constantly have to be learned.

  48. Realize though that even the smart people will slow down eventually. I generally consider myself smart-I’ve always been ahead of the curve in grades and comprehension+I got an IQ test and placed in the top 1%-but how long will I be sharp for? I already feel myself slowing down and not getting things as fast as I used to, and I’m 22 lol. It’s proven that mental ability declines very steadily(and at quite an alarming rate) as you age. Where am I gonna be at 61?

  49. I'm starting my first day at Amazon in less than a week. I've started brushing up on Java in preparation for this fact, but I'm a bit nervous as I'm inexperienced. I tried to ask my manager whether there is a tech stack I should be looking into for preparation, but he was a bit vague. Any Amazon employees have any advice on what technologies to look into in order to hit the ground running? I've looked up JUnit, but specifically I'm looking to implement an API using Java(I suspect that is similar to what I'll be doing, I'm part of the Amazon Smart Home Appliances Team)

  50. Most services at this point are written in Java, though I've seen Scala and Kotlin once in a blue moon (still JVM-compatible).
