Programming / Re: Cost Benefits: Monolith Or Microservices? by ReactJs(m): 5:30pm On Jul 19
Karleb:
No vex if my tone sounds harsh. That's not how I mean it. grin


You wouldn't even get a decent backend developer job in some companies even in Nigeria these days if you're not conversant with microservices.


I want to disagree with this statement.

Apart from using Docker and doing the usual git branching, Git merging, approving Pull requests which isn't Microservices, I think very few, I mean very few companies in naija uses this microservices thing.


If I am wrong abeg correct me.

You're not wrong. That's why I said "some companies". But knowing really knowing your way around distributed systems is a huge plus and automatically increases your chances of getting a really nice(financially) backend role if you'd agree.

Microservices are overrated in a way.

Most companies using micro-service architecture started with monolith, when the code base became large, they switched to Microservices.

There are a lot of applications making cool money using monolith. E.g Nairaland.

So stick to monolith, most people don't expect you to tear their app into Microservices. When you get employed by a FAANG comapny, study your Microservices.

As per cost, it's not worth it.

While you are shouting Docker, Kubernetes, clusters and all those gibberish, Another dev would just open cpanel, dumb the code and deliver to client.

Lol relax bro. i was just thinking out loud when i asked the question and i was expecting to share thoughts. plus docker, kubernetes and the likes are not gibberish.
These are tools that were created to solve a particular problem and they've been excellent at it. Solutions exists because there are problems.
You don't know me you don't know where i work. You don't even know if my company's project is built on microservices. You wouldn't even get a decent backend developer job in some companies even in Nigeria these days if you're not conversant with microservices.

Programming / Cost Benefits: Monolith Or Microservices? by ReactJs(m): 12:57am On Jul 19
Hey guys so there's this microservices based app that I'm working and i currently have about 5 services communicating with each other at this moment. It's a node.js TypeScript, Docker, Kubernetes etc project. Before i started the project, i had planned on running my clusters on GCP so as to take an advantage of the free $300 credit but for months now, what was supposed to be a 48 hours payment verification process has spanned across several weeks. Google no gree answer me. I have an AWS account so after like a month of work, I decided to move my k8s cluster to AWS and oh boy! Guys it was barely 24hours and AWS charged my card for a very funny price. i had to move my cluster back to my local machine and continue working from there.

A lot of companies these days are migrating from a Monolithic architecture to microservices. Do you really think its worth it??

As a side note, i found a very great tool for running k8s applications. its been a life saver. I think it was created by the guys at google. its called Skaffold.

Saw this after typing a whole note. This is the last time I am ever trying to draw the line between the two, they just hate the fact that real and grounded CS graduates are preferred at the top and makes more. They can continue competing with the worst CS graduates and feel that's what CS encompass.

Bro what the f#ck are you even saying?? Didn't you read the part where i said getting a CS degree is not a joke and should not be treated as such?? After you've gotten a Cs degree, wouldn't you choose an area of specialty?. Let me even burst your brain, whatever branch of computer science you choose to specialize in, a random dude can take those same lessons and know exactly what you know (if not more). Both Harvard and Stanford CS classes are on youtube. If you and i both apply for the same role at google, whoever demonstrates practical knowledge in form of actual software created is who's gonna get hired.

What do you mean by real and grounded Cs graduates are preferred at the top and makes more? Do you not understand that every employer in the tech ecosystem wants to see what you can actually do? Like practical, niched knowledge. I've seen this play out time and time again.

Make una dey calm down abeg

Programming / Re: Why You Should Probably Drop Out Of A Nigerian Uni And Learn To Code. by ReactJs(m): 6:57am On May 28
thesicilian:
Bad advice. First you can learn to code while studying whatever course in the university, and second, being without a university degree in this country will rob you of countless opportunities, don't let anyone deceive you.

Maybe i should have stated earlier that I’m speaking in the context of tech. If you’re into tech, you’re not getting robbed of any opportunity if you’re competent enough for the job.

tensazangetsu20:
Op I don't believe in the university like you but dropping out is a foolish decision especially for a Nigerian. Don't allow yourself to be deceived that degree is important even if it's a third class degree. No one cares about your grade just have a degree.

You can take the risk if you plan to stay in Nigeria working for max 300k a month or some remote jobs but if you want to leave Nigeria via means of work you can't bypass any developed country's immigration without a degree. It doesn't matter what your degree is in or what grade you have. Just have a degree.

That’s a big lie boss. A very big one in fact! What are you even saying. Bro i have 2 friends in Frankfurt and Berlin. They both got jobs from here and i know them personally they do not have degrees. I trust you know HNG internship right? A top guy there that i know personally is also in Germany. He left Ambrose Ali. These jobs with options to relocate literally take care of everything for you.

I swear, there is money in technology, but you have to do what you love, u don't venture into programming bcuz it pays.

do what you love, its like having fun and getting paid.

No word of a lie boss. it was just really infuriating seeing a lot of people kill that guys confidence cuz they don't know any better. If i had gave in to fear and what people said then, I'll probably be teaching in a school or working in bank or just a profession that's not scalable. no disrespect to people working these jobs though. but if you know better, you just have to do better.

YouTube is a better school than our universities.

A reorientation is needed starting from our parents.

Exactly. Couldn't have said it any better. I was very stubborn about my decisions so my parents had no choice but to back off. wasn't easy but my life headed towards my desired destination.

Programming / Why You Should Probably Drop Out Of A Nigerian Uni And Learn To Code. by ReactJs(m): 5:48am On May 28
After going through this thread https://www.nairaland.com/6572647/thinking-dropping-out-college-focus , I realized that in the coming years, there's still going to be a large % unemployed and ignorant youths. I have never seen a group of people to afraid to take risks and generally pessimistic in my entire life!

How do you people not know that times have changed and even in this country, especially the emerging tech industry in Nigeria, you DO NOT NEED a Bsc to work.

I dropped out of 2 federal universities because i realized very early in my life that there's a difference between schooling and education and that a time will come that society is gonna need actual EDUCATED people. I'll leave you to figure out what it means to be educated cuz it seems like a lot of you guys really think you're educated. You're being Schooled that's why we're where we are as a country. if 60% of the youths are actually educated, Nigeria will probably be a better place.

First uni, I studied biochemistry and 2nd uni i studied zoology. I saw that all of these courses didn't align with the trajectory i envisaged and i took a conscious decision to change my path. it wasn't easy but here i am today.

A friend that didn't even bother going to university at all. He started learning immediately we left sec school in surulere. i recently met him in victoria island and he's a goddamn big boy. A complete senior developer at his workplace.

All of my friends back then in school are doing one thing or the other just to make ends meet and only just a few are doing relatively well. I am not mocking anyone but a lot of you just really need to stop viewing life in binary terms.

Before i got a job, i interviewed with about 3 companies in this Lagos and not one, not a single one made mention or even asked me about a Bsc. I've interviewed with firms in Brooklyn and Amsterdam, they never asked me for a degree. You people really need to wake up o.

I've been an instructor for over a year at a well-known bootcamp in lagos. Majority of my weekend students were bankers, accountants and all other types of people looking to get into the tech ecosystem.

Times have changed and you people better understand this.

sexylassie2:
For all those learning and advertising python to wannabe programmers, stop wasting your time.

If you don't have good mathematics background or love for data,you will fail big time.

If there’s anything I’ve learnt so far, is has to be that you just have to have genuine love for this programming of a thing. If you’re going into it just because everyone is, it will end in tears

Programming / Why Self Taught Programmers Over “Exaggerate”. by ReactJs(m): 10:56am On Jun 28, 2020
So I’ve been noticing a trend lately. Mostly from insecure CS guys that always look for opportunities to talk down on programmers that didn’t go through the conventional route of getting a CS degree.

Make no mistake, a CS degree is not a joke and should not be treated as such. Having said that, the world is moving past the whole certification oriented way of employment.

I just read a news on CNBC that Donald trump wants to sign an order that favors skilled workers over newly college graduates.
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2020/06/26/why-we-need-new-trump-executive-order-on-no-college-jobs-hiring.html

I am not a CS graduate and almost all of my friends that I’ve met in this programming journey. We worked really hard to get where we are and although there’s still so much to do but we’ve been able to come this far without a CS degree.

My advice to all CS graduates is this, your employer wants and needs depth. Stick to one aspect of CS and master it. The world has changed! Seriously it has!

We that learnt everything we know today by ourselves and are doing well are a proof that the world has changed! Don’t get left behind.

Programming / Re: Why Do Self Taught Programmers Over Exaggerate by ReactJs(m): 7:19am On Jun 28, 2020
Lol! This mrBible guy is just salty and insecure af! You’ve got to be on a different level of insecurity to be ranting all over this thread. I didn’t learn CS, neither did 3 of my friends that are all doing great in their line of work. I am not going to be the person to diminish the usefulness of a CS degree but when it comes to PROGRAMMING, Baba SOME of you CS students are just so full of sh!t. Your employer needs depth. They want to see what you’ve done and what you can do. How come we’re all getting offers from Europe if we’re not good? I have only met on outstanding CS guy who’s crazy at what he does. Just keep improving and stop crying like a little baby

Programming / Re: Web Development Isn't Lucrative Anymore. by ReactJs(m): 2:49am On May 08, 2020
Hey guys. I’ve always been reading topics and posts on this section from the sidelines so i thought I’d create an account and contribute a couple of things. This post is aimed at answering a couple of questions as to what programming language you should learn and the mode of learning with the highest ROI.

First things first, i see a lot of guys here that try to discourage newbies from going into web development. It is for this singular reason that i really decided to make this post.

What Language should you begin with?

There is no one correct answer to this question. To be able to make an informed decision in relation to this important question, you need to focus on 2 things. First thing is why you’re thinking of learning to code plus what you intent to do with the language you might end up choosing.
The second thing comes after you’ve answered the first which is the Numbers of the surrounding the language you choose. The numbers of active GitHub repositories and the numbers of remote jobs listing that ‘this’ language has.

WEB, MOBILE or DESKTOP?

If you want to answer this based on the second parameter that we assigned to the “What language should you begin with question” , no other form on programming comes close to web-based programming in numbers(all ramifications ). The web is now very very different what it was 5-10 years ago. Hell! It’s even different from what it was 2 years ago . I know over a lot of guys that are in Europe today through the power of JavaScript! I myself did an interview for a firm in the U.S couple of months ago but i didn’t get the job based on falling off short in some few points that would take me to the final round. I have a couple of tests from 2 firms in Europe that i haven’t taken yet. It’s just there sitting in my mailbox waiting till I’m ready for the assessment. What I’m really trying to say is, the web provides a huge opportunity both local and international if you’re really really good at what you do! As a side note, JavaScript happens to be the language that dominates the web (do with this side-note information what you will )


MODE OF LEARNING?
Again, a lot of guys here tell newbies not to learn from YouTube tutorials. I cringe when i see this and I’ll tell you why .

The best way to learn introductory concepts of programming is YOUTUBE/UDEMY! Eventually if programming is your calling, your instincts will push you to search for more information on the tutorials that you’ve watched which will in turn lead to reading of books and articles. In this way, you’re already Hot for clarity and knowledge which makes reading and assimilation almost seamless.
Do not put the cart before the horse.

I think I’ll stop here for now . If there’s any other thing you’d like me to add let me know in the comments and I’ll respond when i can. Stay safe!
