And The 10X programmer didn't realize it had gone down.
The 10x programmer is already more stackoverflow than human.
All jokes aside, THIS is the exact reason I will happily inject a neuralink into my brain.
The 10x Programmer is Sentient StackOverflow
Whats stackoverflow? I havent had one since C++
When the 10X does eventually go to sleep, stackoverflow will throw a run-time exception.
i ain't a 10X, more like .1X but i still did not notice it, useless for me i guess lol i only check a certain post that has been closed about programmer productivity ...lol
No "all of the above"? 😭
As the implementer of this still admin only because it's kind of unfinished feature, I knew that the answers would appear in random order no matter what order I input them. So "all of the above" wasn't really in the cards. 😵
"All/none of the others"?
That makes sense...
Unclear right now if it's a bug or feature. It helps ensure the poll is less biased.
I remember reading a comment on Twitter a while ago that the third option (of four) seemed to regularly have a higher count than the rest, even (or especially?) on nonsense polls.
So, the idea of randomizing them to lower bias makes sense. I'd call it a feature. 😄
Maybe, when finished, the poll could have a way to add that option with a flag and always render them at the bottom of the list.
You forgot "Gross indifference".
Not that Stack Overflow and assorted Stack Exchanges aren't useful, but whatever happened to stretching one's brain and hitting sources of official documentation? Or is this just me being an old curmudgeon? #GetOffMyLawn
I'll join you on that. #RTFM
RTM is noble but it just takes way more time than relying on others who've already RTM for me ... yes call it lazy but I call SO my biggest productivity boost ;-)
What if I want to rely on others to Read The StackOverflow for me?
Maybe a platform could summarize and pre-digest what those others write?
I've seen many examples of that, websites trying to "distill" and regurgitate the knowledge from Stackoverflow, and it's worse than useless ... it's always outdated, you're missing the context, you get a ton of annoying ads (people running those 'platforms' need to make money somehow), it's polluting my Google search results ... waste of time.
Ten times better to get the info straight from the horse's mouth, that is, Stackoverflow. And github issues often contain nuggets of gold.
Websites trying to aggregate or 'improve' info which they've sourced from authoritative sources only make things worse. It reminds me of the shadowy world of the numerous Wikipedia clones/rip-offs which often don't do much more than scrape info literally from Wikipedia and add a ton of ads to it. I've come across those websites, pointless and an utter waste of time.
rm -rf node_modules && yarn
Both? Must really like packages. 🤔
Edit: Oh sorry that would run yarn, I misread.
I’m very fond of making this available with dev.to, it's much more feasible for us than others because we built for CDN-oriented distribution from day one, so an extra layer at the absolute edge wouldn’t be a dramatic leap.
Still an undertaking though.
Sometimes I hack SO and take it down so that I can go get lunch.
I contemplate the meaning of life, whilst begging the computer gods for help.
this also reminds me of a joke "How did they build stackoverflow... before stackoverflow?"
Change this and test, change that and test, change and test....
I question my ability to code. As an experienced dev, I lean on stackoverflow for validation more than I do for actual answers.
That's true. Often it's part of my workflow no matter how much I need it. It's just part of the process no matter what.
Become a 10xAssassin 😂
Much cooler, can't argue with that
Well I should thank You for writing that awesome article about John Wick and 10x devs 😁. I can't get it out of my head (in a good way heheh).
I honestly spend most of my time on MDN. It's friendly and usually correct and no one berates you for browsing it's contents. ;D
But where do stackoverflow devs go when they have a question 🤯
Probably stackoverflow but since that is down in this scenario... slack group?
Oh yes, I couldn’t agree more. Even our modest service worker integrations have been iffy thus far.
But I still feel like it’s a pretty interesting pursuit.
Lunch time, any time 🍝
