An insight into academics....
I have seen academics code. It is crap. It is bad. But, it was never meant to be used by anyone else. While it is bad, these guys will not produce any kind of usefull stuff, or go on to be developers.
The mentality is: I need to solve this math problem. Then they write a lot of code to solve it, and never bother searching for it on the web.
move them to python, teach them to use pandas, scipy, and numpy. throw in a little matplotlib and things will be easier.
well... at least less lines of code.
Chronum5574y@magicMirror I guess it's more infuriating personally since I'm a computational physicist who strives to write good production code. Sure, my pretty scripts are in Python, but my code that rotates and rubs hypothesis testing on 50k images is going to be pretty standard. Bleugh. Academia. Great. But also sad.
@Chronum yup. theoretical physics needs efficient code. you guys have to deal with huge amounts of data. I just hope that you are doing it in a computation cluster, using some sort of standardized CUDA based parallel comptations...
Have you ever taken a look at imageJ or Weka code?
May I join the thread as I am developing a lib in Rust. This language isn't really OOP, am I doing this right?
