Programming / My Opinion On Chatgpt. by ReactJs(m): 12:22pm On Jun 06, 2023
so i started using chat gpt about 2 months ago. i was skeptical at first cuz i didn't know what to expect and apart from reading about it on twitter , i wasn't really sure what it was about.

BUT it's been 2 months and i've got to tell you that chat gpt is not coming to take your job Lol. it is here to assist in becoming an insanely productive developer. if you're looking at it from the angle that's it's coming to take your job, you're gonna be missing out on a whole lot.

Most times, we 'fight' because it provides inaccurate informations every now and then but that is where your own experience/discernment kicks in. you tell it that you think this is wrong and it's gonna provide you something very close to what you're looking for.

As it is now, my productivity has skyrocketed. i can take on tasks that i don't really know too much about cuz once i sit with it for an hour or so, i'm definitely going to achieve what i set out to achieve.

I think the relationship is symbiotic because we both gain from the interactions; it gets better as an AI model and i also get better as a developer.

Programming / Re: Getting A Raise And Promotion Faster: A Short Developer's Guide by ReactJs(m): 6:52pm On Jan 12, 2023

This is the worst advice you can give anyone

Technical competence gets you the job, emotional intelligence gets you ahead. This applies EVERYWHERE. Because you will always reach a point where it becomes about managing people to get results. If you cannot manage your boss, you will not be able to manage a team of subordinates.

Otherwise you will wind up bitter as you see people who are not particularly smart or intelligent get ahead.

Thank you. You cannot get to the top based off of technical competence alone. I don't know what kind of organisations people on this forum work for or how large and diverse their team is. I told the other guy in the thread that, after you've established a certain level of competence, you soft skills will matter more. It's just the way the world worlds.. unless you want to keep jumping from one company to another all your professional life.

Always follow the context.

The OP surmised that people should please their managers to get favors, which could be positive recommendations.

My response is to counter that.

This is not about people management and your points are way off from the context.

Many companies have failed because they had a culture of cult worship.

If you are good at your job, you would be valued. If you are not valued where you are, simply go to where your skills would be valued.

As a manager, I appreciate subordinates who can deliver on their JDs and KPIs more than those that are always telling me my new sneakers are the best Nike ever made.

There is a limit to where foot licking can take you.

"The OP surmised that people should please their managers to get favors, which could be positive recommendations. "

Lol that's what you understood from what i wrote? You're a funny person and one of the reasons why i chose not to indulge you the other day is that i saw you definitely missed the point and you're still missing the point.

Hey bro please send a DM to @npmrundev_ on twitter.

Become better at the job.

Dont give a hoot about mid management liking you if you deliver on your KPIs.

If you are really good and they try to hogwash you with this rubbish bootlicking, take your skills to another place.

I have seen people who follow this your mantra and they stink professionally.

Erm Okayy
Programming / Re: Getting A Raise And Promotion Faster: A Short Developer's Guide by ReactJs(m): 7:01pm On Jan 09, 2023

How do you impress the manager? let me guess by working hard ?

Err yes to some extent. after a certain competence level, soft skills becomes more important than hard skills.

Programming / Getting A Raise And Promotion Faster: A Short Developer's Guide by ReactJs(m): 6:27pm On Jan 09, 2023
So there's something i've been meaning to share with you guys pertaining to getting a raise and or promotion at work.

Most times in a workplace you see raises and promotions get handed to people that other employees might feel they're underserving of it. Sadly it almost doesn't matter how much of a hardworker you are or if you always work longer hours than everybody if you're not strategically positioning yourself.

A lot of times, it boil downs to if you have someone(mostly your manager) speaking on your behalf to the people that makes the decision concerning who gets either a raise or promotion and who doesn't. If your manager doesn't feel compelled enough to fight for you in your absence where it matters, you have a problem.

You need to focus only on impressing, in this context, your manager. Your manager HAS TO LIKE YOU. I cannot emphasize enough the advantages of this. conversely, i also cannot imagine the disadvantages that comes with your manager not liking you.

You just need to how find to become a likeable person and get the important people in your organization on your side.

Programming / Re: Don’t Pay Attention To The Noise. by ReactJs(m): 9:49pm On Nov 20, 2022

Good evening ReactJs,

I will like to ask, what are the hard things a Nodejs Developer needs to learn apart from Express, Mongodb, and sql for database in order to stand out and any course recommendation or pointer that could be of help.


Hi bro, please have a look at this https://roadmap.sh/backend, https://roadmap.sh/nodejs. For courses, please checkout Stephen Grider on udemy
Programming / Don’t Pay Attention To The Noise. by ReactJs(m): 6:38pm On Nov 04, 2022
People are still getting hired. if you’re just starting out, I’ll implore to stay away from social media for at least 1 year and really work on improving your skills. Learn the hard things.

Learn the nitty gritty of whatever aspect of tech you want to go into, this is what will separate you from people who get their advice from developers on twitter who probably spend more time on twitter than they do on their IDE, if they have one.

Again, don’t pay attention to the noise in media right now. People are still getting hired. You just need to be good enough.

The only caveat is that you probably cannot become good enough in 3,6 or even 9 months. You need at least 1 year of consistent practice, training and working on the right things. Day in Day out!

I’ll attach a screenshot of my conversation with a buddy of mine that got hired couple of days ago.

People are still getting hired. You just need to be good enough.

Hello guys. My company(Uk based company) intends to fly us out the UK sometime this year for a company retreat.

So they need to know what it's going to take to get me a visit visa from Nigeria to spend a couple of days(7-10) in the UK. i've been working with them for almost a year and half.

Please i'd appreciate any info/guidelines on how to go about this and what needs to be done both on my part and theirs. Thank you!

Programming / Passed All Rounds Of Interview And Still Got Rejected. by ReactJs(m): 2:29pm On Jul 21, 2022
So guys on my quest for a 2nd remote job i wanted to share my experience interviewing for sort of a fintech company in the US called WalletHub and how you should manage your expectations until you've signed an employment document(even those get rescinded LOL!)

I'm not a person that gets disappointed easily because believe me life has taught me not to celebrate until i'm very sure i've gotten that thing but after passing i think about 5-6 rounds of interview and SPOKEN WITH THE CEO, i thought i've finally hit the jackpot o.

This whole process took OVER 1 MONTH.

First round was normal coding test which i passed, followed by a behavioural interview, followed by a technical interview, follow by about 3 or 4 finance/credit card/loans mathematical tests. omo i passed everything.

They asked for my salary, i said $60k p/a for a senior role without mincing words. HR said no wahala. HR was even telling me the brand of headphones to get for meetings and what not only for me to receive the shock of my life.

I was very confused and even thought of replying to cuss them out or something but i just overlooked.

Has anyone experienced this same thing?

Programming / Re: Foreign Jobs(remote And Relocation) Discussions by ReactJs(m): 12:26pm On Jul 19, 2022

If not for anything, do it for your children. Having your kids with a Nigerian only passport is a very serious handicap. I rather not have children than have Nigerian only kids. I despise my parents for making me a Nigerian but theres nothing I can do about it than make sure it doesnt happen to any of my own kids.

Lol bruv you’ve made a good point. That’s another strong reason to want to leave. I just think I’ve gotten very comfortable with juxtaposing things i can currently get in Nigeria and things i can get abroad.

Most of the stuff can make aboard appealing are things that i probably already have.

Programming / Re: I Want To Go Into Tech; What Field Should I Choose? by ReactJs(m): 12:06pm On Jun 01, 2022
Bro you need to reorient yourself with regards to how focused you are about the monetary benefits of a career path you've not even started. One of the things that drives people to get into "tech" is money no doubt but you're probably not going to stick around to make that money if that money is your only motivation because it might relatively take a while before you start seeing that money.

Another thing is nobody can really decide for you what aspect of tech to focus . you're going to have to do your own intensive research so as to know beforehand what you're actually getting yourself into.

Whatever aspect you later pick, you can now start finding people in that domain for more in-depth suggestions about how you should go about it. That way, you make it easier for everyone involved.

On a side note, guys, quite a number of people send me requests to chat privately. I'm sorry I can't respond for personal reasons.

Please you mind telling me where you find remote jobs where the company hire candidate from all over the world. I have applied 100s of times and most of the time, rejection is that I am not a citizen so I can't be offered the role. You give me sources I can try.

LinkedIn sir.
Programming / Re: So There Are Devs That Earn Up To 30k USD. by ReactJs(m): 6:10pm On Apr 28, 2022
Quite insightful post tensazangetsu20. I had an interview with a startup in Oslo,Norway last week Friday. The interview was in 3 stages. Live coding(Fibonnaci Sequence) , Design Patterns and take home. Made it to the take home aspect which apparently was the easiest aspect of the interview but if I get offered the job, I'm not gonna take it cuz the pay range is still in the range of what I'm earning and its a startup. I don't want to work at a startup.

I'm already in the over a million Naira monthly bracket but my actual goal is to get to at least 10million Naira monthly before the end of next year. But I have actually seen backend roles that wants to pay me this within my desired range. I came very close with a firm in Helsinki, and another in the UAE. Do you know what keeps messing me up? AWS certificates. I swear. it's almost like I can't run away from it anymore which is why I'm dedicated the next couple of months for getting these certs.

Boys are trying o. beyond trying cef but these guys are not cheap. quality work costs money and sadly a lot of Nigerians don't wanna pay for a top tier product.

someone in my network reached out to me that he wants something exactly like https://dappradar.com/. Told him how much it's gonna cost if he wants it to look like that. i'm not a frontend person but i've got a great taste and know when a product doesn't look and feel sleek. Sadly he didn't see the need to want to pay good money for a top product.
