Co-founder David Fox’s Top Ten devRants

Build//Better Developer Career Development Leave a Comment

No one loves their job all the time. Sometimes we all need to vent.

No worries, no SPAM. Opt-out anytime.

Developers are good at venting, what they didn’t have (until this past Spring) was a safe and dedicated place to do it. David Fox and his partner Tim have solved that problem once and for all.

We featured David and devRant in issue v1.2 of BuildBetter eMag (definitely check it out!). That got us thinking—what are David’s Top Ten devRants to date?

He was nice enough to let us know, plus add a little color commentary below 🙂

Here you go. Enjoy!

“This rant gave a lot of inspiration to creating our weekly rant feature because it really showed how devs seemingly liked to commiserate over a certain prompt and I really enjoyed reading the responses.”
