In this technological age, developers are always looking for an easier way of working things out so that they don’t go about doing things all around by themselves. Bots has been introduced which has come to be resourceful to companies to reach out to their clients even via social media.
This programmer known as ” FiletOfFish1066 (FOF) ” in Reddit, graduated from California State University in computer science, he got his first job as a dedicated programmer testing software development in a well known tech company in the Bay area.
While working he found a way of automating his work; his work was to test software and to fix bugs by writing application if it’s possible which earned him $95,000 per year on average for 6 years. On doing so he only focused on working out at the gym and playing League of Legends and browsing Reddit. According to him in his words, His no one comes to speak with him only his boss so i guess he found the work so boring.
These are his exact words;
From around 6 years ago up until now, I have done nothing at work. I am not joking. For 40 hours each week I go to work, play League of Legends in my office, browse reddit, and do whatever I feel like. In the past 6 years I have maybe done 50 hours of real work. So basically nothing. And nobody really cared. The tests were all running successfully. I shit you not, I had no friends or anything at work either, so nobody ever talked to me except my boss and occasionally the devs for the software I was testing.
Now he is completely upset from his post he has forgotten how to code now;
Time to try and cut my League of Legends and beer addiction…..I’m going to try and practice running through Cracking the Coding Interview as well as a data structures and algorithms book. I’ll also be applying to some jobs. After thinking about it for a while I think once I study everything I forgot, my motivation will come back. I always liked software dev, I just was a lazy ass.” -Reddit FiletofFish1066 (ten minutes after researching and finding these quotes on Reddit, FiletofFish1066 seems to have deleted his account and entire story).
This is interesting and i hope it will serve as a deterrent for we amateurs coming up.
