@NJM8 I reluctantly switched from Sublime and I have mixed feelings about it... I still do prefer ST3 but since vscode is free in every way that makes it very hard to say no to...

the small positives:

  • I like that vscode's menu interface is more modern compared to ST3's...
  • I like that vscode has integrated terminal and you can even use your own one and since I'm on windows I use cmder
  • I like how you can install extensions and custom themes in vscode
  • the autocomplete is somewhat better compared to ST3's

the big baddies:

  • I had done some heavy customisations to it, like around 100 lines of custom user settings plus custom keybindings compare this to ST3 which I've barely even touched...
  • and since this was another Microsoft product I knew they couldn't resits infecting it with something vile so my first ever setting was "telemetry.enableTelemetry": false,
  • the format on paste is a joke... it doesn't do shit (tested in JS, PHP, HTML, CSS)...
  • I couldn't find a decent extension/settings that would pair HTML/PHP brackets in a more visible way (if anyone can help me with this one) I am using highlight-matching-tag but it doesn't do gutter level highlighting like for example Bracket Pair Colorizer does (which doesn't work in HTML/PHP)
  • every god damn time when I close vscode and shutdown computer after I start it up again it doesn't remember my last open files! I consider this to be the most annoying one since I always work with multiple folders/files (I always use Open Folder and Open File since the latter always overwrites what is currently open and I don't want to do separate windows) and I have to always remember where I left off... I already have "window.restoreWindows": "all", but it seems just as useless as format on paste...
  • I don't like the styles the linters are using (warnings, errors etc) so I tried changing them but for some reason it always resets...
  • I can't find any option to fully disable pop up text that appears on hovering things... yes it was useful for awhile but it quickly became annoying and I don't know how to get rid of it
  • it never remembers when I turn on/off word wrap...
  • its free so that means its limited in what it can do, thus Sublime Text 3 is still much faster and uses less resources...
    Overall I think its a solid free text editor but still, I'll wait for Sublime's next big update and switch back to it...

VSCode updates.
Constantly.

@Marmiz so does ST3, if you have the dev build... and vscode is at version ONE! so who knows when these annoying bugs (like format on paste) will be fixed...

... that would pair HTML/PHP brackets ...
sorry I meant to say tags not brackets...

I don't have any major complains tbh.

I was sad when at work we were obliged to migrate to it, but I have to say the transition has been smoother than I'd imagined.

@tundeiness do this:
1) Open Folder
2) Open File of something else except of what is in that already open folder
2a) (Optional) do changes, save everything
3) shutdown or restart computer

What's their medium seniority job spec? Create a js Framework? 😂😂😂

@JLuboff good good. i was just looking at what @moigithub has up there as requirements for a junior dev job. I am pretty much a noob and i don't have steady employment yet, but it seems a little too much
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 15:42 UTC
I think most of us agree that that is beyond a junior dev position lol

Aug 21 2018 15:43 UTC
@JLuboff crazy ugh
Kelechi Chinaka
@ke1echi
Aug 21 2018 15:45 UTC
it’s usually going to involve whiteboarding a few things like implementing a linked list, returning an ordered array of the most common letters in a string input, implementing a sort, that kind of thing.
thats what a jnr role interview should be like, i think
Kelechi Chinaka
@ke1echi
Aug 21 2018 16:02 UTC
@JLuboff right?
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 16:02 UTC
Maybe...never been to a Dev interview to be honest lol
Kelechi Chinaka

@jeffersonnnn thats what i think
ohkay @JLuboff

@ke1echi I found it easier to work my way into a dev job instead of finding one hehe
Jefferson
@jeffersonnnn
Aug 21 2018 16:05 UTC
oh yeah, i think so too. Infact i am studying for such a thing right now. but i still think for smaller startups, not so much whiteboarding happens. A numbe of established people i know kick against it @ke1echi
Kelechi Chinaka
@ke1echi
Aug 21 2018 16:07 UTC
lol @JLuboff
whiteboarding should be great, atleast implement a sorting algo @jeffersonnnn
you've never been on the interviewing team for your firm? @JLuboff
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 16:22 UTC
@ke1echi Nah. I was the last person hired in my department. We're only a team of 4 supporting a company of ~300

I knew one guy I graduated with spent 90% of his time working to "nail the interview" and not much else. AFAIK the guy is still un-employeed. I saw him work on a game for a project, after 4 months of work the guy had what was more or less the demo they give you by default. Idk if he was lazy or really was just that bad at programming
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 16:39 UTC
I've never really prepared for an interview outside of looking into the company a bit
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 16:42 UTC
Yea same here, technically the last interview I had was for an internship and I don't think they cared to much besides making sure I wasn't a crazy person haha
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 16:43 UTC
I've found that even if you don't have the most knowledge, as long as you're willing to learn and have a decent personality that you'll go at least further in the interview process
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 16:44 UTC
I guess it really depends on the company
I knew a few guys that applied to google, had to go thru like 6 steps of interviews
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 16:46 UTC
To be fair, all my interviews have been with smaller companies
Or I should say small-medium
Never a large

thats odd, my cursor theme changed a few days ago. No wonder my cursor looked "different"....
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 17:36 UTC
Well why did you change it
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 17:37 UTC
I didn't.... plays twilight zone music
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 17:41 UTC
Sure you didn't
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 19:20 UTC
nope, no way
I think its VSCode, my cursor changes to the funky one when I use it... so odd

I don't have that issue with Atom ;)

Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 20:06 UTC
I have a lot of other issues with Atom
宋少卿
@songshaoqing
Aug 21 2018 20:07 UTC
I think WS is better.
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 20:10 UTC
oops
well, I put WS is to slow for me, it doesn't keep up with my keystrokes, but then I deleted the post :P
宋少卿
@songshaoqing
Aug 21 2018 20:11 UTC
It's really slow, but it's powerful. There's no need to download plug-ins.
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 20:12 UTC
I needed to download a number of plugins, and they didn't work out that great
宋少卿
@songshaoqing
Aug 21 2018 20:13 UTC
Atom?
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 20:13 UTC
on WS
I tried to get prettier to work on save for WS, and it's like a half manual installation
both atom and WS extensions are mostly neccessary, but are uber easy to install and manage
宋少卿
@songshaoqing
Aug 21 2018 20:16 UTC
We have more friends with WS or vscode or Sublime here.
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 20:21 UTC
I went from webstorm-> atom->VsCode, I still use sublime on the side as my "quickie" text editor (besides vim) for notes, copy-paste-bin and query editor, since sublime is blazing fast compared to all the other editors in startup time
宋少卿
@songshaoqing
Aug 21 2018 20:22 UTC
It's really fast
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 20:29 UTC
@gbsimon87 Yo
you know you're a coder when you use a code editor for text files @bradtaniguchi
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 21:30 UTC
I legit don't know of what I could use that isn't an editor haha
well "code-editor"
microsoft has some sort of software or something i heard
'office' ?
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 21:32 UTC
Ah, well yea, but I can't run that even if I wanted to (on linux hehe)
Simon Cordova
@gbsimon87

Been a serious day, some good code learning though :)

I'm testing SQL Server migration..so..thats fun...
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 22:13 UTC
I've been chasing 60% testing coverage
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 22:14 UTC
I'm sure you have
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 22:22 UTC
But I think I have stuff setup wrong, its saying I'm testing config files?
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 22:25 UTC
Dunno. All I know is looks like my migration went well
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 22:30 UTC
Nice :+1:
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 22:34 UTC
Yup, all live databases copied over with ease, including login/users, database objects, agent jobs, etc
dbatools is awesome :smile:
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 22:35 UTC
thats a tool? (dbatools that is)
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 22:37 UTC
Yup
powershell tool to be exact
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 22:40 UTC
Oh its a powershell command? (oh god powershell)
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 22:41 UTC
dbatools is a collection of powershell commands (over 300)
one of which is a migration tool, that in my tests works great
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 22:45 UTC
holy s*
damn, that's only a windows thing hu, prolly for windows databases hu?
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 22:45 UTC
It's specifically for MS SQL server, ya
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 22:46 UTC
damn MS
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 22:46 UTC
Although...apparently you can run MS Sql on Linux...but I have no experience with that
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Aug 21 2018 23:03 UTC
Idk if I want to try that out haha
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Aug 21 2018 23:04 UTC
I have no desire to lol
