  1. Stranger Things

    Ep 7 had me questioning whether I enjoyed the whole season. Ultimately, I did, but yeah it was terrible, misplaced and irrelevant.
  2. Recommendations - No Spoilers

    Enjoyed Mindhunter. Really feeling shows that avoid the conventional/predictable nuances in plots and dialogue (i.e. it's nicely original).
  3. Learning To Code

    Thanks for resources, will dig in this eve. In the context of banking - so yeah exposure of data and also read/write APIs like payment initiation. If I read through basic specifications of those that expose data, I broadly get it but am tasked with how to improve them, for example by building in filtering/search functionality to avoid speed issues in returning bulk data, or say adding nearby search requests for locator APIs. I'm having to read existing proved APIs like Mastercard to pull out what they've got but not quite fully understanding it. I'll check out Stripe though and compare across providers as think that's the faster route then attending courses/starting from scratch in learning languages, at least for time being. Might watch some tutorials.
  4. Learning To Code

    Sorry I've not read this thread but anyone know what are the stepping stones to working with APIs? Currently assigned to API work from business side and feeling to do some side courses to support ongoing technical grasp, but no idea where to begin.

    Big little lies is a decent tv drama Can't stand Shailene Woodley. Overused and same broken character in every movie.

  7. Official Cooking Thread

    One of the few dishes in which I enjoy lentils Eat meat once or twice a week these days but the dullness in the lack of variety in meals is creeping on me now. Need to set time aside to explore more recipes.
  8. Marvel Super Heroes

    Legion >>> The production is so fucking great
  9. Homeland

    last one was ridiculous smh throughout
  10. Official OFWGKTA Thread

    Don't know if this got a mention anywhere but Syd's album is a great listen
  11. Podcasts

    I cannot believe I've only just discovered silence trimmers in podcast apps and the thought of using audio speed ups.

  13. Work & Life

    Absolutely ridic the amount work is paying for an overseas trip. Definitely not worth sending me over tbh, well at least not with the cost that's attached - business class tickets with $300 per night accommodation for two weeks. I actually said I'd be happy to have Economy and find a cheaper place to stay myself (manager said the same) but secretary said it's best if everyone has equal arrangements and accommodation is through partner so have to go with them for security/insurance. It's a total of just over £8k Also the head of department took the piss - she had an open return business class ticket to US in Dec and never used it I'm obviously psyched and very grateful, but the extortionate hotel and flight isn't necessary! As a new member to the team, there's definitely gonna be some questions over why I get to go so I just hope they don't find out the price tag. Even more ridic they book this accommodation and tell me I have to pay for it myself and claim it back. Have to apply for another credit card just to do that. (still grateful)

    Hmm, may check it out as doubt I'll go any other time with anyone. / Also going San Fran for work in Feb for two weeks if anyone's got recomms there. Hoping to meet mates that will take me around anyway. Going up Chinese New Year so will be a good first weekend.
