When are you hiring me as official Giant Bomb brewmaster? I do requests!

The time for that was when we had a bar in the office. Sadly... no longer the case!

Solution: Someone mails a bar to the office. Best mailbag ever!

I'm totally going to write down all of these tools they use so I can focus on them when I go to school for programming.

This had 60 comments the last I checked. Now it has 59. Well, guess what. Now it has 60 again and balance is restored.

It's times like this, that I wish I was an engineer. :p

#63 Posted by crapdragoon (49 posts) -

My Brother would be perfect for hiring but he resides in Felton (just east of Santa Cruz) and thats probably to much of a commute for him every day.

I started working a lot in PHP this year. Although I would love to work at a place like Giantbomb, and would probably go in a second if they asked me. I don't want to make programming, or games, my crearerr. Because I like games, and I like programming and the quickest way to hate something is to make it your job.

crearerr.

Made me laugh.

@snide  @idbloc
 
can you say what NoSQL platform you guys are using, and any hints for starting into it?
 
I'm thinking of diving into learning about them after living the SQL life for a looong time, but I know there are many different types (document, keyvalue etc) and have read some implementation horror stories...

Haha another reminder of how useless my political science major is :P

Can't wait for the new site to be finished!

surprisingly, i feel the same way about the bachelors in science: biopharmaceuticals, I am about to get.

Why don't video game websites ever want archaeologists. Clearly, I did not read the fine print of my chosen profession.

#70 Posted by kerse (2118 posts) -

Give me another few years of school :(

#71 Posted by GalacticPunt (1105 posts) -

Good luck, you engineer nerds!

#72 Posted by waylonflinn (5 posts) -

This means I have to upgrade the Giant Bomb portions of Crunch Magic. We lean pretty heavily on this and the Steam Community APIs. Guess I better head on over to the forums. I wonder if the two will exist concurrently or if I'll have to switch instantly when it goes live.

@bluesun: We use Redis; among the NoSQL solution it's probably the most popular. I am sure MongoDB and cie have extra features.

Also, I wouldn't advice you to use only Redis for storage otherwise you might get into huuuuge trouble. If Redis is down fall back on SQL (MySQL and PostGreSQL are great).

Now some engineers use it for caching and by experience I would rather use Memcached (super basic key/value storage) instead of Redis for performance reasons. Redis has more tools than Memcached (it has barely any).

If you try at least you know if you make the wrong decision :)

@Patman99: You will certainly be needed in 100 years to go through Jeffs' collection

#75 Posted by nightbird (55 posts) -

I thought you duders were a python/django shop, I guess maybe that changed with the CBSi merge?

@idBloc: thanks for the advice! thinking the new GB site is in good hands :)

I once knew a guy that thought any degree that wasn't in engineering was utter shit and insulted people that majored in anything that couldn't be applied directly to a high-paying field of work.

I like to think that guy is cooking fries at McDonald's right now.

I'm a subscriber, but I get a "The server returned a "403 Forbidden"." message any time I try to access the new site.

#79 Posted by coaxmetal (1657 posts) -

Man if this was still a django shop I would be chomping at the bit to get this job... but I hate PHP.

#80 Posted by therealspratt (23 posts) -

Hurrah for PHP! Though I am considering switching to Python on the recommendation of a drunk web developer I met in Gatwick airport.

I'm already getting nostalgic for the old site. I mean the current one. This one.

#83 Posted by AzlamOrlandu (29 posts) -

I'm making a stalwart effort to find something to bitch about.

#84 Posted by Stinky51012 (162 posts) -

I understood nothing in this article. Hire me?

PHP, Symfony2, Node, C#/MVC, NoSQL, MongoDB.

...

lolwut?

#86 Posted by Giantstalker (1725 posts) -

I drive armoured vehicles and operate artillery.

When you guys need either of those things done, you know where to go.

Confidentiality is my specialty

#87 Posted by MadExponent (305 posts) -

Hire legal counsel. I can be the cool gamer attorney.

#88 Posted by darkenedsoul (3 posts) -

It's interesting to see the site go from python/django to php/symphony. Alas I am only a year and a half into my web development career.

#89 Posted by bondfish (66 posts) -

if you guys can hold that position until im done with college that would be swell

#90 Posted by kollay (1939 posts) -

I still have hair. Am I not qualified?

The guy in the middle of the picture looks like Dick Cheney.

#92 Posted by wardcleaver (173 posts) -

Sadly, I don't think I am qualified to join the American Petroleum Institute. Although, it is good to see GB diversifying its holdings.

#93 Posted by Kallin (24 posts) -

I work around the corner at Salesforce and have been hacking away on a little app using the old GB api. Not so keen on learning PHP, but I could get behind the node/mongo stuff :)

I make a mean margarita. Giant Bomb should have a staff bartender.

#95 Posted by Kepler (36 posts) -

I tried to log in, but it says that there is no active account named Kepler? Do i have to be a subscriber?

@Kepler: Pretty sure it's in beta for subscribers only.
