OpenGL

Looks like I'll have to learn graphics programming to keep my job or I'll have to find another job. And good luck (pejoratively) to me trying to find a job in Rrromulania which doesn't involve drawing shit.

If they're paying you to learn it, what's the problem?

Apart from generally deeply, deeply hating UI, I'm a fucking engineer / scientist not a fucking artist, it's not like I can't learn this shit too but it's obvious that if I do it, my life ends here.

There's no point struggling.

They don't pay me to do the things I love, I can't even pay myself the things I love and just doing another slavery crap in exchange for another day is not worth that day.

I'm off this shit.

Sounds to me like you're a misguided idiot, graphics programming is engineering, if you thing an artist can do it you're an idiot.

"OpenGL is a cross-language, cross-platform application programming interface (API) for rendering 2D and 3D vector graphics. The API is typically used to interact with a graphics processing unit (GPU), to achieve hardware-accelerated rendering".

Wait...

So this is a worldwide industry standard API for graphics programming.

It's not proprietary to your employer


What exactly is the problem here?

Not the worst thing that could happen and therefore why I didn't say no. Still it's a 10+ years solid to master it, about what I've invested in options.

If he agreeds to part time then I'll take it. And he'll probably agree.

50%-50% between non-depreciating industry standards doesn't seem so bad.

As much sooner than another 10 years invested in a pipe dream.

I'm not gonna brag here on my cantankerousness but finding a guy who's spontaneously creative while at the same time taking the bus to work is way more rare than finding an 150'er cheater on the IQ tests.

And if there's going to be a sequel to this it's not these two guys I have to compete with, it's where they came from.

I've found that doing good user interaction stuff highly depends on the ability to understand the scientific method. Setting up experiments, testing on subjects, and being able to comprehend and act on the results. More so than almost anything else.

1. Invent awesome new feature.
2. Five years later still not a single person is using it?
3. Observe users. Prompt them. Beg them. Test them. Find out what the deal is.
4. Mind blown. Complete redesign, which is 50x harder to implement than original design.
5. Users using feature increases from 0% to 3%.

The funny part is that the two customers who pestered you daily with requests for this feature, saying it was absolutely critical, are among those who simply won't use it.

They only do that so they can appear to be 'proactive' to their bosses and get raises and promotions.

It's all fake.

Hmmmmmm..... that makes a lot of sense.

Likewise along those lines, the employee can say to his boss "Sorry I can't finish project X since dumb SoftCo refuses to implement the critical feature we need."

So then I go and implement it and tell them and they think "Oh fuck..." and they just go silent.
