Any webdev guitarists pissed off with Ultimate-Guitar.com?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 15:40

Bit of a rant here but shit I hate that website. UI is shit. Quality of submitted tabs is shit. It is spammy AF too. I actually paid for the app once and once I did I had to pay more to unlock essential features.

So what's the deal with guitar tab websites? Are they that hard to build and moderate to ensure quality? Or is it just me?

How to fix "undefined function drupal_get_form()" in Drupal 8?

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 15:00

I'm working on a project where I have php code in my content pages, for which I installed the PHP Filter module. All of my pages work fine now but I keep getting this at the bottom of the page.

Drupal 8 PHP error

Looking at modules/php/php.module, I see that 'drupal_get_form' is a parameter in php_eval(), but I don't know where to go from there. Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Thank you.

Easiest way to Speed Up Your Wordpress Website in a Minute

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 14:59

Website speed is more important than ever.

Research suggests you only have 7 seconds to capture a viewer of a website before they click away. So what we’re talking about today is of utmost importance, not even mentioning how important site speed is for your SEO.

The WordPress blogging platform is used by millions of websites on the net. It’s incredibly powerful, but due to how customisable it is, is prone to getting slow.

Looking for new job... how do I do it discretely without my current employer knowing?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 14:58

I am working with a temp agency to help find me a job in a more web dev based environment. My Degree is in Web Design however I became trapped doing Marketing/Proposal Writing work and I feel like my talents are being wasted. So I have been looking for a new job. A Web Development group is bringing me in for an interview in two weeks. However during this whole process I am trying to not let my current employer know that I am about to be leaving at a moments notice. I am worried that I can not continuously use the "I have a doctors appointment" excuse over and over as it will become fishy and I can not be unemployed while looking for work. So what is the best way to go about this and do this discretely? Any tips or advice would be helpful! Sorry if this isn't the appropriate sub...

(Side Note: My employers are three of my uncles who run a civil engineering company and expect me to work here until the day I die)

Suggestions for projects on github which could help learn web dev using spring

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 14:34

I feel its easier to debug,refer documentation,make change and break and reworking in an existing project are the best ways to pick up a framework rather than going through hours of tutorials where everything is spoon fed. Would be greatful if fellow redditors could provide some suggestions for projects on github which help pick up spring framework. Thanks

Anyone notice the Flavio Copes explosion?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 14:33

In the past few weeks I've noticed a JS / web developer named Flavio Copes started popping up in google searches. In the past these (web dev-based) searches would just surface a Stack Overflow result (or MDN), but now I'm seeing his website for at least 40% of my searches. I checked out his twitter & it feels like the guy never sleeps, and is writing content for *everything* in the web-dev-sphere, I've never seen anyone rise up that fast.

The content is actually good so I'm not hating, but I'm kind of blown away by the sudden prevalence of his content & pretty impressed by the output (not just articles, books too). Part of me wonders if it's like 10 writers using a single pseudonym. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this recently?

# This isn't a shill, I'm genuinely curious. Thinking of asking him what his work day is like.

GraphQL is Everywhere!

CSS-Tricks - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 14:22

I find GraphQL extremely fun and empowering tech to work with, even as a novice just getting started. You've probably heard the elevator pitch before: it allows you to ask for exactly the data you need whenever you need it (probably at the component level), and it arrives as lovely JSON data for your usage.

I see it used as part of modern website builds all the dang time. The overall vibe is, "I want to do whatever I want on the front end, and that actually allows for more back-end choices as well." And by "whatever" on the front end, that generally means a fancy SPA-ish JavaScript-powered thing or a static-site generator-ish thing.

Here's a quick smattering of articles that are everywhere these days. Instead of the actual article titles, I'll rename with the stack parts.

GraphQL is certainly in the new-and-hip category, but as ever, everything old is new again. Check out Query by Example, a language from the 1970's:

.....Name: Bob ..Address: .....City: ....State: TX ..Zipcode:

Resulting SQL:

SELECT * FROM Contacts WHERE Name='Bob' AND State='TX';

The post GraphQL is Everywhere! appeared first on CSS-Tricks.

Someone with a disability tested recaptcha v3?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 13:53

I guess everyone here has already heard of reCaptcha v3.

Obviously I am very interested, but I am afraid for the accessibility. Because in the end with the score it is up to us to decide if the user is a bot or not.

Someone with a disability/has a software or hardware for people with disabilities has tested recaptcha v3?

I had someone building my website, it's fairly simple for $300, he backed out halfway finished cause he was busy.

Where can I find quality web developers that are trusted, don't cost a fortune, and will work with someone who's inexperienced?

Typical Salary?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 13:02

I currently am employed by a very small company (~7 employees). I've been working here for 2 years now and have 100% loved it. However, I am still in school and will be graduating this spring. As such, I need to start thinking about expenses post school (student loans :/ ).

Currently I am making $25/hr which is fantastic while in school, especially since the work is totally remote and the schedule is largely up to me. I figure $25/hr equates to roughly $52,000 / yr (261 work days * 8hrs * $25). Don't get me wrong, that's a great salary just out of school, but the average for a cs degree from my school is ~$90k just out of school. Many of my friends are getting offers for $100k+ (with lots of benefits).

I am wondering what a reasonable raise to request would be for post graduation from a company this small. Seeing as there are virtually no benefits offered, no stocks/year, no free food at work etc.

For some context of what the work looks like, since there are only three developers I work full stack:

Backend: PHP (could do without this one...), python, postgresql

Frontend: JS, no frameworks, very few external libraries. We create most of our own.

Apps: Cordova for ios and android.

The site we produce is a GIS site. Lots of maps, graphs, real time sensors, and large data set crunching. Also I really like that the work I do goes directly to users, and to helping people. (the work is focused around natural resource management in CA. Think Cal Fire, Water, and farming)

I absolutely love the work, it doesn't feel like I am going to work which I think is a rare thing to find. So I really would like to stay at this place, but I also need to balance that with my market worth and post school expenses.

So what do you all think would be a reasonable salary request for a full time full stack dev at a company like this?


I am graduating soon and want to stay with the company I have been with, but am not sure how much salary I should settle for as a full stack dev.

Dealing with feeling inferior skill-wise to coworkers.

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 12:10

Hey guys, I'm working on a team and have been struggling with not feeling as useful as the other developers.

I get asked to do certain tasks and the other members will point out everything I'm doing incorrectly. I rarely am told my code is satisfactory. My work isn't terrible, but I frequently miss crucial things like forgetting a certain case could exist in a complex conditional statement, or writing code that is difficult to understand without explanation. I'm frequently told to "pay more attention to detail", and struggle to apply this advice.

Have any other junior developers dealt with this? How do you overcome feeling like you are the weakest link? I study in my free time but I feel like maybe my lack of a computer science degree is the 'golden key' I'm missing compared to the others.

Any advice?

Full Stack Designer vs. UX/UI design & Front-end developer - positioning yourself

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 11:44

Hi guys,

I was wondering whether it's better to position yourself (on your website/social media etc.) as a Full Stack Designer or UX/UI design & Front-end developer.

In my opinion, Full Stack Designer sounds better but for those who are not familiar with this term, UX/UI design & Front-end developer might appear as more informative.

What are your thoughts on this? :)
