re: How Can We Keep On A Tech Side VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I think it would be a positive change for users to have a better way of filtering out content you're not interested in.

From what I've inferred from your posts, you're both technically capable and happily established in your career. Why would you want to read ten different React beginners articles or my ramblings about the non-technical side of development?

However, just because you aren't at a place in your career where you find it interesting or beneficial, I think it's a little insulting to call it crap. We might not be manipulating the memory of running applications on a Boston Dynamics robot with a magnetised needle with some of these posts, but people have a lot of experiences with the human side of being a developer that they enjoy sharing and a lot of us enjoy reading.

Blacklisting tags (or some similar mechanism) is a great idea, though, and I hope it'd go a fair way to keeping everyone happy.

Because both seem interesting to me.

Well, that is not about my career and not about me in general. Everybody has a list of topics to be named “crap” and I just used this word as “virtual reader’s definition of crap.”


I personally prefer to discuss development process itself or developer’s entertainment aka ramblings about the non-technical side of development, and not “42 advises on how to fool the employer,” what basically all the career advises are about. I got to that place in my career by constantly cultivating and refining my skills, not my following internet advises on how to sell myself better. Skillset is what should count, not the ability to produce a good résumé or to answer questions on the interview. I worry about the industry full of imposters knowing nothing but how to pass the interview.

But still, all the above does not matter in this discussion. I never claimed I expect dev.to to make anything for me to feel better. My concern is the future of this site, not my happiness.

 

Perhaps rather than blocking tags, a better solution would be an option to automatically hide any post with a number in the title.

Only half joking.
