Still C.S.S. featuring VJ-Dawg


Parody rap verse from “Still D.R.E” performed by “Dr. Dre Featuring Snoop Dogg”

[Intro: VJ-Dawg (Ash Bee)]
Yeah bro, Still coding with ya
Still the refactoring is a mess
Still HTML and CSS
It’s same ole UI thang, ni**a
(LOL.. Guess who’s back
Still refactoring that shit, huh VJ?)
Oh for sure, now you rap about it.

[Verse 1: AshBee]
It’s still AshBee ni**a, representing UI Team ni**a
Before I rap my hack, I can’t “trust” you back
Cause frequently ideas change when things going on “track”
You’ll notice me around with my T-shirts black.
Now, we are into CRO, but some say its UI will fell off
How bro, My last project was “The Platform”
They want to know if he can still manage it
They keep designs changed, they want to know how can I deal with it

If you ain’t reach the deadlines
AshBee is the name, I’m ahead of your commits
Still… Playing TT everyday, still making my Oreo muffins
Still… Not loving new coffee machine (Uh huh)
Still… Rocking on my lowers with Adidas stripes
Still… Got respect for the engineer bhais
Still… The design changes, still the PM irritates
Since the last code release, ain’t too much changed.

[Hook: VJ-Dawg (AshBee)]
Still… I’m representing for the frontend all across VWO
Still… Kindly make your design finalized before we code
(Still… Taking my time to refactor the shit
And making room for creativity, it’s the CSS)

[Verse 2: AshBee]
Since the last time I heard from the lead, Kush went on sabbatical
Well.. Hell… Me, VJ and .PNG, we dipping inside the code again
Found all the files, fixed’em one by one
Opening pull requests, doing twice or thrice a week
Still… I stay close to the features
And make sure everything works and looks fine as expected
My PR comments are like a soundtrack I wrote to the beat
Treat my work like passion, I code till I sleep
Wake up in the A.M., compile the shit
I put my iminagination in UI you’ve even seen
Ain’t mere a fix, it’s been optimized and maintainable all the way through
Following the commandments of “The Mighty Kush Krew”
I’m still working, after post-production
More tweaks and refactoring beyond satisfaction
Applying things modular, flexible and extensible
Even I try to make’m all possibly unbreakable

[Hook: VJ-Dawg (AshBee)]
Still… I’m representing for the frontend all across VWO
Still… Kindly make your design finalized before we code
(Still… Taking my time to refactor the shit
And making room for creativity, it’s the CSS)

[Outro: VJ-Dawg]
New UI change?
Merged that in ya mother-fu**ing master branch
Updated Version 4.4.3
Explained that shit up, in the styleguide
Check out the new SASS directory
No monolithic, more segregated, less “shame”
Some of them might be really tacky hacky
Didn’t get it? Seems like you’re from backend 😛
That’s another backhod rap, AshBee!

Straight Outta Production


Parody rap verse from “Straight Outta Compton” performed by “N.W.A”

You are now about to witness the Bakchodi of Software Development

Straight Outta Production
Crazy UI developer named “Ash Bee”, dude
From the team named “Coders with Attitude”
Projects I get involved, QA bugs got solved
Merge conflicts? and even they got resolved
You too, designers, if you f**kin’ confuse me
Even PMs are gonna come and get me
Clear Mockups, that’s what I’m looking out
And sensible use-case, consider that to show out
Git/Stash starts to mumble, JIRA wanna rumble
Sprint-wise, Every story and estimate crumbles.
Here’s my commit log to keep you dancin’
Subtle but scary like Marilyn Manson.
WebStorm IDE is the tool
Don’t make me use Sublime Text like a fool
My code’s running fine, and unit cases clearly
I’m knockin’ sprints out of box, daily
Yo weekly, monthly and yearly
With some awesomeness and creativity
DAMN Agile development, You can’t f**k with me.
So when I’m in your pull-request, your typo don’t suck
Coz’ my reviweing comments are lengthy as f**k
As I leave at 7 PM, believe I might be coding till midnight
but when I come back next day 12 noon approximately
It’ll be released “Straight Outta Production”.

Smart Steps to be Productive


You can’t deny with the fact that we’ve only 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week and 52 weeks in a year, neither less nor more. No matter what you do, you would probably gonna feel that you’ve less enough time to complete the tasks. But still successful people smartly manage their work complete within the given time. Mind the word ‘smart’ Fellas !! 🙂

There are plenty of ways to work more productively and efficiently, suggested by a lot of people throughout the world. The key behind all of these methods is to ‘work in time’. There’s only a need a Time-Management in your Life and you ought to maintain discipline and give some respect for that. Even some anonymous said nice words for Time, “If you gonna respect time, the time gonna respect you for sure”. So True! 😉

Lemme give y’all some tips to work productively and hopefully you keep them as habit.

1. Make A To-Do List

This is the primary method of scheduling your tasks. Simple! Make a ‘Daily To-Do List’ of all your upcoming tasks in an order and maintain discipline. Keep this list handy throughout the day and cross off those tasks which you’ve finished. This would make you productive and some satisfaction that your tasks are going properly.

2. Prioritize Your Tasks

Yet another important method. You should know which tasks are important and you should do them first. Of course, making priorities would help you enough to focus on the things. Just in case you’ve forgotten, you could make a list of all your tasks and give them ratings on the basis of their priorities to be done.

3. Set Deadline For Every Task

I’ve mentioned a quote on respecting the time and I meant that seriously. There’s just something about deadlines that makes you thrive. Set an appropriate deadline and try to finish them sooner, otherwise you’ll start procrastinate the task and further delay would cost you for other tasks waiting in queue. Make a reminder in your Diary or Cell phones, about deadlines, so that you’ll get to know about your tasks’ deadlines.

4. Keep Your Workspace Clean

Not only for cleaning concern, but also for productive cause you must keep your workspace. It often happens we waste couple of time in searching important files, documents and our belongings. Same case happens while working in a computer or laptop. Make your space clean enough such that all our belongings are visible. You could even prioritize among them. Let say, which items should be place above the desk or under the desk.

5. Plan Phone Calls

Some times even calling or taking calls in the middle of something, breaks the momentum and can derail the productive project. Kindly avoid such situations. Set a time zone in which you’re free for a while and make calling habits of those you’re trying to reach. You can’t always be rigid as some important emergency calls might come. Still try your best to reduce to some extent. Even you could notify to your callers to contact when you’re available to talk. And as a good manner, you must return all calls by the end of your task.

6. Set Your Own Working Time Zone

Everyone has different energy cycles and time zones of working. Some are night owls, who could world all night. While others are the morning persons. Even you also have the ability and stamina to work on either the time zones. Analyze your strength on which particular time zone you work most because that’s the time when you’ll be at your best.

7. Take Breaks For A While

It has been proven a lot of times that working continuously for long hours, makes you less productive as your energy deteriorates. Take some break after working for hours, have some food, listen to music, or take a little rest. But take breaks for few minutes, otherwise you’ll lose the momentum and further delay in the assignment.

8. Avoid Website Distractions

In the modern era of Social Networking, we spent a lot of time in tweeting, mailing, blogging or just simply chatting with people. Even if you’ve some important work to do, you get into it. Sometimes, we check our e-mail a lot of time in a day. The reason is that we get addicted to it. These are the distractions and seriously a waste of time. Avoid them. Reduce your time span in website. Check your emails once or twice a day. You could even set bookmarks in case you’re visiting some important websites very often, rather finding them again and again.

There are plenty of other tips being discussed in the web. But the main aim is getting more productive and working efficiently in limited time. They would take some time to be a regular habit and it’s always work in progress. The good news is if you start focus on applying new tools and techniques in your life. Hopefully, you’ll be succeeded.
