Ask HN: How to learn best practices when you have no one to teach you?


I am currently working for a startup and am one of 3 developers. Most of my work revolves around building the API in Node + Express as well as some small projects with MongoDB. The other developers don't really assist me since they have their own projects to work on, and, honestly, they have less experience and knowledge than I do.

So my question is: What is the best way for me to go about learning best practices in API development, or using MongoDB, or even just being a better software developer in general?

Ask HN: What is the best “dumb” phone?


Due to privacy and time management concerns, I have decided to take the jump and get rid of my smart phone. Unsurprisingly, there are very few of resources online about which dumb phones are the best. Those of you who use a non-smart phones, which model is it and how do you like it?

Ask HN: Is Someone Hijacking Google Images?


I was looking for ideas on how to build a simple network analyzer to test antennas, filters etc. so I typed "network analyzer schematic" (without quotes) on Google Images and it apparently returned some results I was expecting, but clicking on a lot of results from the first page opened some subscription only websites with suspicious names nagging me to create an account to see the actual images, some of which I'm 100% sure I already have seen on their original authors websites. Those websites are clearly made by the same entity, and to me it appears they're essentially hijacking Google Images results for their profit. Here are some of those results; many more on the 1st page. I had a hard time finding something that returned an actual loadable image or an article without asking for subscription. Note that they all return URLs containing "spectrum analyzer schematic" although I searched for "network analyzer schematic".

Ask HN: How to talk like a leader, not like an engineer


I am a technical manager and currently in a leadership role. My manager who is an executive, keeps telling me“ don’t talk like an engineer, talk like a leader” when I go to him for any people or operational Issues. I always see from an engineer lens and possibly missing leader or executive perspective. How do I develop or change the way I talk as a leader. Did any one face this issue in the transition. Any pointers can be of great help.

Ask HN: How to create a service similar to Patreon?


I'd like to create a service similar to Patreon, I know how to do the technical side but not so sure about financial side: how do I charge users to send the funds to other type of users (creators), while subtracting a small percent? How does it need to be set up from the POV of financial compliance? Can it be reported as "payment to support Creator xyz" without a specific product? Does the company need to register as a bank or something similar to a bank? Financial services company? Where can I find some relevant resources, and how can I narrow down my research so that I don't have to read everything about all types of financial services but only more or less relevant info?

Ask HN: How to find profitable side project idea?


Hi there HNers,

Last summer I worked on a startup as lead developer. I learnt about running a startup and talking to users while working there. I have now quit working there to focus on my studies (second year university in London).

I would like to work on a side project that eventually would lead to some revenues this summer. My question is, how did you find problem(s) to solve ?

I have read books and blogs suggesting that the best problem is the one that I have faced before. I find it difficult to do this when almost every problem that I found, there has always been existing solution or the solution can be solved with some quick searches.

Any idea or thought is really appreciated. Thank you.

The longest I've been at a place has been 2.5 years. I find that I'm usually itching to get out around after the 2 year mark due to various reasons like boredom from doing mostly the same thing over and over, lack of change in environment, no new challenges, people I know having mostly left/transferred to better places.

Ask HN: Is it just me or did Google search recently get a lot worse?


Past few days(weeks?) I find myself more and more frustrated with google search. It seems to frequently omit the most important keywords I'm typing. I constantly have to click "Must include 'Keyword'", because more than half the links on the first page miss it, even if it's the first one out of 3 words in my query.

I'm not the kind of person who thinks about search quality, this is the first time in my life I have ever noticed it being frustrating.

Ask HN: What tech stack would you use to build an open-source Google Keep clone?


I'm sick of waiting for Google's Keep team to improve their app, or even to respond to feature requests. (Crickets.)

So I'm going to attempt to build my own - despite being a real noob when it comes to JS-based tech stacks. What would you use as a starting point for a tech stack, if you want:
  • public/private/sharable card options - import/export to a couple of mainstream alternate formats - reasonable response times - an improvement over downloading the entire DB upon page load - markdown-capable cards - sort/filter/tag options
I'm assuming this is going to be some flavor of Angular/Vue/React. Suggestions?

Ask HN: Is it just me, or is CSS too damn hard?


Hey HN,

I'm a seasoned backend developer and systems administrator, with over 10 years of full-time programming experience. I've worked with anything from Assembly, C, Rust all the way to Python, Erlang, Elixir, PHP, Haskell, Lisp, Clojure.

When it comes to frontend, I have used React, Vue.js, ReasonML, Clojurescript and Elm extensively, and I know my way around web technologies in general. However, ever since I first started programming, I was NEVER able to get the gist behind CSS. I can't center my divs properly. I can't say "hey, CSS, this is the parent div, and all child divs must obey its size". I can't do anything basic on CSS without turning for help.

Incidentally, but very likely related, I always failed to have any glimpse into how design works. I have no idea which colors "go" with which ones, and pretty much all fonts look like the same for me.

I'd like to know the experience from fellow programmers. Is CSS an "... Show more...

Ask HN: Why do tutorial writers combine 10 technologies when 1 or 2 would do?


Suppose I want to learn graphQL - most of the tutorials are a combination of express, react and 20 other things, when most of these aren't going to help me learn what I originally came to learn. I saw a course on blockchain which explicitly stated it is for beginners ("no coding experience necessary") and they picked JS along with 5 other JS frameworks to build a simple toy blockchain when Python would have been a much simpler choice (most of the students were struggling to understand JS Promises and unable to complete the exercises).

Isn't this crazy? I can understand paid courses doing this - maybe they think they're providing more value for the money by tacking as many tech as possible, but free resources? Even they do the same!

Ask HN: How do you motivate yourself to keep working on a project?


I've been working on a small issue tracker for a few months, and it's been ready to release for a while, but I have one more hurdle that I just can't convince myself to overcome: billing. I hate working with the payment provider I've chosen (but they really do seem to be the easiest thing, others I've looked at are no better). I end up with horribly messy code from their terrible Go SDK, everyone says their documentation is great, but as far as I can tell there's a lot of it that all leaves out important information at every step, so I have to tease out how to deal with their million edge cases, etc. I've been putting off a billing rewrite for weeks now and not working towards an actual release; it's to the point where I'm questioning if I even want to be in this industry (although to be fair, I've been questioning that since before I got into software).

Ask HN: How did you decide what problems to solve in your lifetime?


In other words, how do you decide between what you want to work on and what should be worked on?

I've been stuck with trying to figure what to do with the rest of my life. I can't decide whether I should be working on what I want to work on (Energy, AI) or whether I should work on what I believe should be worked on (Healthcare).

It's a short life, so I want to be careful with this decision, to avoid any future regrets. Because I can't decide on this, I end up not getting anything done. Time continues to march on, while I'm still stuck with not knowing what to do.

Has anyone had any experience with this before? If yes, then what and how did you make your decision? What was the outcome? Is there a middle ground or silver lining, where you managed to work on both cases?

Ask HN: How do you keep track of your creative thoughts?


Hi Hackernews, I am a developer with lots of random creative thoughts, especially when I am in shower or after a few shots of caffeine. I have yet to find a perfect solution to keep track of my random thoughts. Here are a few things that I've tried at least for a few months:
  • Physical notebook: still using, but some times my notebook is in my backpack/left at home/in office 2. Evernote alike: never works for me. I hate the constant changing features/UI and the overhead of simply opening it 3. (My pick) use instant IM to send messages to myself: the IM tool really doesn't matter. It could be mail app, facebook messenger, slack. Laptop and phone syncing is free and always reliable.
I know these are my throw away thoughts. I am wondering whether there are some amazingly good solutions that I didn't know of. Otherwise I am planning to create one for myself.

Thanks!

Ask HN: Going from Developer to Manager. What should I know or learn?


After reading (and resonating quite a bit with) "Developer Hegemony" by Erik Dietrich, which was one of the recommended books in the "what did you read in 2018" posts, I think about steering my career to a manager instead of a developer position.

For all those of you who've done the same or planning to do the same: What are the most important skills or what's the most needed knowledge in such a position? Where can I learn it? What should I read?

Ask HN: What was your experience using a graph database?


I have an idea that I want to work on during the break. And I think this is something that would suit a graph db, (a service that would link users together depending on their choice profile). So what was your experience of working with one? Which graph db did you use?

Edit: What sort of problems are well-suited to graph databases? In other words, what are some scenarios where something like Postgres is not suitable anymore?

Ask HN: Engineers from non-CS background, how did you pivot into ML/AI?


I am a EE, hardware engineer with about a decade of experience in PCB electronics and systems engineering experience which includes a brief stint at a FAANG that also happens to be an E-tailer. I have been "dabbling" in Python for about a year now and just recently started with DL using PyTorch and find it quite interesting. To be clear I don't write code at work, atleast not until now. I intend to utilize any free resources (MOOCs) to teach myself the latest techniques in DL for CV. What I am not clear is the next logical step.A part of me wants to Boostrap a SAAS using Python stack to build something that I can market using the traditional channels(PH,Show HN,Reddit,answer SO questions) and show it to potential employers but am not sure if I will even get to the interview stage with a resume but that doesn't look anything like a programmer with a tradional CS background and work experience to boot.

Ask HN: Which tool do you use to create beautiful diagrams?


For instance what they use for stuff like

https://git-lfs.github.com

Or I don't know how to describe it, because right now I can't find an example, but more "comic" like maybe. I know that Venka Subramanian once had such a nice article about Akka with beautiful diagrams, but can't find it either :(
