How shoudl I go about indexing a large amount of movies efficiently?
by /u/snoort on August 25, 2019 at 9:44 pm
So I'm working on a web project which involves a database filled with a large (thousands!) amount of movies, categorized based on genre, plot points, diversity, gore/violence, all sorts of categories. I started making an excel spreadsheet with all the categories I want and a Y/N answer for each category, but I realized that will take waaaay too long and I have too many movies to index. I started looking into MySQL but I don't know if that would be very efficient. I was wondering, what would be the fastest way to do this? Is there some sort of crowd-based public database available, where other people on the internet would be able to help me categorize movies? Or is there some way I could make my list more efficient instead of watching/reading the IMDB for each individual movie and categorizing them? Thanks so much! submitted by /u/snoort [link] [comments […]

For those who are bad with making user interfaces and CSS, how do you handle them ?
by /u/gyaani_guy on August 25, 2019 at 5:55 pm
I am a sole dev in a never ending struggle with making layouts, CSS, and mobile friendly websites. I do manage it, but its not pretty, takes a long time coding and probably is bad from a UX point of view. Any people who are or were in a similar boat ? How do or did you handle it ? Edit: Have using any PHP frameworks / CMS helped ? Any front end tools ? Pinegrow helped me a lil. submitted by /u/gyaani_guy [link] [comments […]
My first coding interview
by /u/PreCodeEU on August 25, 2019 at 5:46 pm
Hey guys, So tomorrow is the day.. I will have my first ever coding interview tomorrow. At this point I am making an apprenticeship and I'll finish next year in June, it's like an apprenticeship for system administration. Almost all my knowledge is self taught and I am kind of worried that I won't know anything they are asking me. They asked me to present them a project I recently done and I will present a small project, which I am proud of. I like the code quality and anything else but I don't know, if that's enough.. So yeah, my first interview and a lot of worries. submitted by /u/PreCodeEU [link] [comments […]

Open source / minimal widget for email+donation to see download link?
by /u/aleksfadini on August 25, 2019 at 4:24 pm
Hello webdevs, What is the smallest, simplest way to implement a web interface that asks for email address and a donation (possibly zero) and in return offers a link to a download? I am building a free educational (non-web) app and I am working to find testers and build a community around it. I hate bloated things, so no wordpress, mysql. Ideally I want a file on my server with a list of the email addresses who have donated, and that’s it (JSON file if possible, or csv or whatever). Open to suggestions. Ideally I would like an open source tool for that, so I can tweak it to my liking. Not sure they exist and I realize some part of it will have to be closed, to operate with PayPal or other closed payment platforms. I looked into stripe, PayPal and donor box and didn’t find anything that clicked immediately. I’m ok with html css and a bit of js, but overall clueless! All suggestions welcome.

What is the best way to build a "slideshow" website?
by /u/exc3ssive29 on August 25, 2019 at 4:21 pm
There is a possibility that I might be developing a new website, which will be like slideshow. The kind where the client wants the pages to slide from left to right or top to bottom. A presentational site, if I say so. They would also like some kind of an admin panel. So far my professional work has been all WordPress with very few small websites with React + Redux. I am curious is it easy to achieve slide transitions with React and also about the admin panel. submitted by /u/exc3ssive29 [link] [comments […]
Am I undercharging?
by /u/Packeselt on August 25, 2019 at 4:02 pm
I got my foot in the door as a fullstack contractor at a SaaS agency, and started at 30/hr. A month later they upped me to 40/hr, which I didn't expect, but was a nice surprise. Unfortunately since then, I have quite frankly been worked like a dog as 'the rapid protoype' guy while it seems the rest of my dev team has a more relaxed schedule. I have this nudging suspicion that I am the lowest paid contractor on the team by a large margin, and the vp and my pm are using my low rates to build their prototypes on a budget. Should I ask for a raise? Should I leave the contract? I'm still pretty new to this, and overall I really like the people and the team, but I'm getting pretty burned out. I'd hate to sound ungrateful for the work, but at some point not working weekends to meet these two week sprint deadlines every two weeks would be a nice plus. submitted by /u/Packeselt [link] [comments […]

The need for a Twitter following?
by /u/burgerlove on August 25, 2019 at 2:45 pm
Other than Reddit, which I goof around on anonymously, I don’t have any social media accounts. I feel happier and healthier without them. That said, I know how important having a Twitter following can be as a developer. Especially if you lose your job or launch a product. Does anyone have advice for not being invisible, but also not forcing yourself to be on Twitter? submitted by /u/burgerlove [link] [comments […]
