Anyone work with Springfox Swagger? I'm trying to set the Swagger UI path through application YAML, or where it makes the most sense. Upgrading from 2 to 3 and want to retain the path used by 2.

Turns out you can't do it easily. In the Springfox.js they have it hard coded to look for basically 2 paths: /swagger-ui/ or /swagger-ui/index.html. so you have to set up either forwarding or redirects in your Mvc Config, redirects being the easier option. Forwarding forces you to have to forward every single swagger resource.

Wrapped up my first project at new company ( Been here about a year ) and Ive been working my ass off / struggling. My imposter syndrome been off the charts the entirety of the time but had a small meeting with my lead today and he just gave me tons of praise. Even got recommended for a promotion to senior. Crazy how much improvement i've made in a little under a year.

Just finished an 8 hour gauntlet of interviews. I need a hot jaccuzzi man. It was good tho, everyone is pretty chill and its with the 2nd ranked company on my list. So we shall see. I was hoping for hybrid, which my number 1 choice is still in the pipeline, but I might prioritze this company over the hybrid but lesser ranked companies on the list. Surprisingly, no coding challenges. Hope to get a couple offers next week so I can start pruning the list. Having to schedule interviews in a week is skressful.

Good job! Yea, just being in the environment and working with the code, you won't necessarily notice your improvement the whole time, so it is good to get some outside perspective to assure you on your journey.

Can I learn SQL and be proficient in 1 month? If I grinded it out hardcore. No other programming experience except mild VBA but high motivation.
You can learn enough to understand the basics. Most experience does come w/ seeing new problems and learning a little more each time though. Also, understanding table structure goes a long way in terms of your JOINs as well. (This might be better suited for the BI thread btw)

Nah. This sounds like the "How Hard is Python" thread? Cramming for some test.

Nope, not trying to cram for a test. Was looking to apply for jobs in 2-3 months but was trying to gauge the extent that I can improve my skills within that time. If it is not possible, then I won't try to integrate it in my resume or I'll just put it as a "basic understanding" under skills.

I can't speak to the jobs you're looking for, but in my biased opinion, a background in VBA (and I'm guessing therefore also Excel), does pair nicely w/ SQL. From my understanding, the main alternatives outside of VBA would be M-Language/DAX (for Power BI) or Python for deeper automation/analyses.

SQL is arguably the easiest but it's no walk in the park. I'd recommend finishing a good book/course, then finding a dataset you like, and asking a bunch of questions about the data. If you're into baseball for example, the Lahman Database was something I used initially.

Yea, I'd say out of all the programming/scripting languages, SQL is probably the easiest. But SQL is a bit different logically. Also, do you know if the job is more on the operational side or the analytics/reporting side? The former would lean more into dealing with creating and finding particular records, whereas the latter would be more on dealing with a dataset as a whole

I agree with already posted sentiment, you'll want to get a book on it.

And this is a useful diagram for understanding joins:

which database will you be targetting?

you can get good with core ANSI sql in a month, excluding possibly outer joins. especially if you understand set theory (basics), basics of data normalisation (logic) or already know a programming language.

the gaps after that will be understanding database structure, tables, master-db/meta, temp-db, indexes, views, pipeline, caches, redo, hints etc (and their influence on queries), sql extensions, db extensions (e.g. oracle remote links), and stored procedures e.g. transact-sql. pl-sql or similar.

a very good book for core sql is

maybe there is an "e-book" out there ...

sybase used to be so simple. oracle more complicated. mysql a bit bitty.

easiest option to practice is sqlite3 which might already be on your laptop.

Starting to see offers come in. I'm pretty happy, as this time around its multiple, whereas the last time out I only got one offer and it was way lower than what the market was offering for Data Engineers. Pretty much expecting to have 2 by end of day Monday. There's one company that I finished what I think were final screening interviews this week. That one's the actual one I want, don't even care who offers more money since all are above my target raise from my current position (unless of course someone gets me above the 200k base, lol). Just nervous because I interviewed with this company like 2 times prior and didn't make it past a 2nd interview. This time I met the team. Just thinking about how I could have given better answers.

One of the funny things is the 2 gaming companies I interviewed for were the only ones that didn't have coding rounds. And one of them has the most diverse group I've seen since I've been in tech. 3 women on the team, black, I think hispanic, and indian. And then 1 black guy. The other gaming company isn't as diverse, but they're the type of people I came up with in engineering undergrad.

So we shall see. I'll try to post some more of the questions I've seen. There were some good ones that I had to look up afterwards

Edit: Just got out of a meeting with the recruiter for one of the companies. Looks like they are updating the position from Senior to Lead role. Seems interesting, moves them to 2nd on my list tho, lol
