Chuck Norris and Jenkins (ASMR Edition)

Introduction

It’s always fun to stumble onto an easter egg. But it’s even more fun when they’re Chuck Norris easter eggs. And my Automation Engineer left quite a few on our Jenkins server.

So without further ado, I’ll leave you with some amusement with a bit of an ASMR twist. Let’s begin!

No statement can catch the ChuckNorrisException.

When a bug sees Chuck Norris, it flees screaming in terror, and then immediately self-destructs to avoid being roundhouse-kicked.

Chuck Norris rewrote the Google search engine from scratch.

“It works on my machine” always holds true for Chuck Norris.

There is no need to try catching Chuck Norris’ exceptions for recovery; every single throw he does is fatal.

Chuck Norris doesn’t need an OS.

All browsers support the hex definitions #chuck and #norris for the colors black and blue.

You don’t disable the Chuck Norris plug-in, it disables you.

Chuck Norris doesn’t need to know about class factory pattern. He can instantiate interfaces.

Chuck Norris doesn’t program with a keyboard. He stares the computer down until it does what he wants.

Chuck Norris can compile syntax errors.

Chuck Norris’s beard can type 140 wpm.

Chuck Norris doesn’t bug hunt, as that signifies a probability of failure. He goes bug killing.

When Chuck Norris presses Ctrl+Alt+Delete, worldwide computers restart is initiated.

When Chuck Norris gives a method an argument, the method loses.

The only pattern Chuck Norris knows is God Object.

The Loaded Question

Introduction

What’s up everyone and welcome back to AllWebSD. As 2021 unpacks itself the recruiting season is once again in full swing. And as companies unleash their budgets for their next round of hires its a no-brainer that you may get a call. Sometimes its a tech recruiter gauging your interest. But every now and again you might get called because someone marked you as a professional reference.

And that’s what leads me into tonight’s topic.

You see, that very much happened just a few hours ago and one question in particular felt like an awkward one to answer.

The Loaded Question

What are some of his/her weaknesses?

– Hiring Manager

Dear Recruiters

What can I say? Obviously, if someone inks me in as a professional reference, I intend on outlining the brightest attributes about this person. I’m going to deliver, in real-time, a series of bullet points as to why this person is more than qualified for the role on hand. I’m not placed on a short-list to bad mouth my peer. I was called to spotlight what could help you make a more informed decision.

That said, I’m not foolish on the inquiry either. I understand that to even get this far into the conversation, my peer must have done well enough to make it to that next step.

But what gives? I’m hard-pressed to find something sensical with this specific question. What does a question like this serve? Where would you like me to begin? How does my answer play into the company’s philosophy? Better yet, how does my answer play into the Hiring Manager’s psychology?

Dear Listeners

This is definitely food for thought. And I have to throw it out there into the universe and ask…how on Earth do you answer the loaded question? And is honesty an effective solution which can surpass the inherent negative bias?

Think about it and let me know!

Vue Components in 5 Steps or Less

What’s up everyone and welcome to Season 4, Episode 2. I guess this episode is more of a heads up in that, I’ve been revisiting VueJS. And with version 3 recently released, its’ once again become a premier option in JavaScript frameworks. I’ve noticed more so that Vue and React’s community continue to push each other’s frameworks into the next level, whereas Angular is definitely blazing its own unique path.

That said, I wanted to brush up quickly but I also didn’t want to spend any more money on subscriptions.

Hence, when I stumbled onto Vue School, I was very excited to see that they had an abundance of free courses designed for all levels. I encourage you to check them out at vueschool.io if you have a moment. I do not have an affiliation with them. This is simply a courtesy.

On my behalf I went ahead and did some of their tutorials – all of which were straightforward and under an hour to complete. It was well worth it!

Feel free to check out 2 articles I wrote with source code and demo attached regarding Vue components. The goal here was to get a grasp of reusable components and implement them in 5 steps or less.

Cheers and happy coding!
