Stop bugging me

This is something which is annoying for a while now. I ignored it over a long period time but enough is enough.

Toady I made a little post on a helping platform for developers and it happened again… The people don’t read the question or the comments before they answer… This is really annoying. You won’t waste my time, your time and the time of the others who are reading this post. This is not meant to be insulting… but GOD DAMNED STOP BUGGING ME. If you don’t want to read the question which was ask or at least look into the discussion below it, don’t answer to it. that easy. A little example from my side:

StackExchange

I blacked out the names since I don’t want to insult anybody… Okay, the first guy were just fine since I just mentioned I am using VS, so how should he know. Then there were the second one who plain ignored what I posted 4 minutes earlier.

And because this is just one case, here is another one…

On the very top of my Post I wrote:

StackExchange2.1

Here comes a part of the answer:

StackExchange2.2

Well that’s not very helpful. (For his defence: The rest of the answer were pretty helpful and he really tried to give good advice, but this example is just to good to leave it out.)

Guys… please… read the questions BEFORE you come up with that kind of answer. I’ll take me as an example for this. I switched to Visual Studio 2015 this year since the company I am working at still uses VS2010. And it’s pretty awesome that C++ >= 11 has a lot of fancy stuff and features, but that won’t help me if I can’t use them for productive code, (Or at least code which I am producing with any relation to my workplace) since I can’t run it at work.

That’s all for today folks.

Hello World

A short introduction of myself and what I want to achieve with this blog

Well, I thought a lot about how to start this and I came to the decision to tell you guys why I am actually doing this.

First of all, a bit about me.

I am 22, I am trainee (in my last year of apprenticeship) as a software developer. My main programing language is C++ but I am also familiar with C# and Java. (Java only a bit).

My dream is to become a professional game developer and I am trying to teach myself the basics of game development.

I am interested in software design, gaming but also the most recent hardware, and that leads us to one of the points why I am doing this blog. My friends and family are asking me a lot about hardware and computers in general and want some tips which hardware they should buy, and that is one of the points which I want to cover in this blog.

Ok what does that mean? Well, I will try to give some thoughts about new hardware (like AMD Ryzen etc) for different use cases (video editing, gaming and media stuff for example) which you can take as a base for buying a new PC.

But that is only one part of this blog. I will also try to share my thoughts and lessons learned about game and software development on this blog so those of you who are interested in that topic may have some ideas or starting points.

I will try to share good sources and protect you from bad ones. I am still in the process of learning so I am always happy about advice, constructive criticism or corrections from your side.
