Criteria : programming language on left , analog on right18
1. No more coding on paper! Why can some already write essays on laptops but programmers are stuck with "analog"?
2. No vendor lock-ins! Teach free, cross-platform development, not VB.NET.
3. No more professors stuck in the eighties! If all you know is 6800 assembly, GTFO. I heard NASA was hiring...
4. Enforce code style consistency, proper documentation and even VCS for larger projects
5. Algorithms -> scripting -> programming. Don't quickly explain the basics, then throw students straight into Java.11
Last year in my circuits class we were given an Arduino and tons of sensors and shit, was told to just 'make something'. So I figured I'd make an potentiometer-controlled RGB LED because the potentiometer is analog and the LED is digital. But I didn't have access to a computer at the time so I wrote all the code on PAPER. When I got to school I copied it into the IDE and.....
Worked flawlessly. Proudest moment of my life.2
So I've been playing some DnD with friends.
And we've been working with some lego characters, whiteboard markers and plastic sheets to draw on.
But that's always a mess:
The ink was old and did not come off again for the most part
The sides of the map curled up and and made the lego character fall over
The lego characters were too big
So I thought, why not make it digital?
And so I did.
I used UWP to make a master and a client, both using the Windows Ink api to be able to draw.
Some circles with an initial served as characters, and everything was synchronized using a TCP library I wrote half a year ago.
Yesterday we tried it out.
We all (including me) were sceptical if it would work well because the 'analog' clumsy way we did it before does have a certain charm.
But at the end we were all very enthousiastic about it and we'll be using it next time too!
It's awesome to be able to create programs for your own use :D
That's why being able to program is such a great thing!
Now I need to restructure everything, make it more efficient, add a turn order display, make the map zoom- and moveable and more and more....20

Lost my favourite analog scope today. No digital scope can ever beat working with a marvellous piece of engineering like this one is.
Smelled like it was a transformer but I'll have to have a close look at that. That's going to be a bitch to repair (given that it's even possible).
I need a drink. In the meantime, kudos to everyone knowing the joys of an alternating timebase and everyone who has ever seen a scope with an analog multiplier built in. Here's a photo of the unit from ~4 years ago.4
I'm a bit weary of devRant being almost software-exclusive. I want to see more about hardware development here (and not just people playing with Arduinos)!
Electronics guys of devRant: Do you exist? What are you working on? Or is really everyone here a web developer?
(GIF related: My soldering irons heating up, the third one being my weekend project from last weekend. Seeing it coming in last, I'll probably have to tune its control parameters a bit more…)14
The Sony Vaio identity, created by Timothy Hanlet, represents both analog (the wave of V and A) and binary (I and O).2
After finishing apprenticeship my boss wanted to print every source code of our website (also CMS) as well our onlineshop (the whole not just own modules).
His intention was to inspect the code offline so he can i.e. lay sheets side by side for an better overview about any relations. Ich knew that he won't believe me if i tell him that's a bad idea so i printed over 10000 sites of source code.
He never looked a single time over it2
Making my own metro style watches with 7 segment 4 digit display and well arduino and i have created my own time in it without delay function and damn i was thinking it would have lot of bugs as last version had like it was 1 second ahead of real time every time hour++ and now its fixed somehow.
Its pretty cool and will post photo of it once its done.
Also did you fucking now that analog pins can be used to digitalWrite ? I didnt. That makes a lot of fucking things easier.
Also yeah it also have that blue light when you are in some light.3
Analog mail still works!
Stickers finally arrived! Thanks @dfox and @trogus for this amazing community !1
An analog clock widget. For something only used in office computers via a browser. Ffs whatever your os is there is a clock already at some corner why do you need a clock widget for the homepage which you will see only for 5 seconds per day
I have 9 voicemails on my work phone. We have to change our six+ digit PIN every month, so I'm just going to not check my voicemails.1
What can I do with my spare Android devices/boards? Could I use the board with a custom OS for a Pi/Arduino analog?
I have 2 tablets that I have no use for. Googling suggestions are pretty simple and nothing that repurposes the hardware.7
To the friend ranting about having to copy pseudo code on paper, I feel your pain. Analog IT professors are the worst.
I raise you one with : I had a professor that had me sent in source code files, a pdf with all the source code and a paper printout of every single line of code for a html/php project. Fifty pages of code printed for reasons I cannot understand. And no, I checked later, he didn't ask for it to take notes during the exam.5
Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, "Where have I gone wrong?"
Then a voice says to me, "This is going to take more than one night."

Just found this in a book that's like the analog version of devRant! ^^
I walk by our devops dashboard several times per day. It keeps track of key metrics for all our live services. I noticed an interesting trend the last few weeks.
3 weeks ago: all metrics green
2 weeks ago: 1 metric red
1 week ago: 1 metric still red
this week: 1 metric still red but covered with a post it note
Why so many people complain about this lack of a 3.5mm jack? It's 2016 and we still have that fossil of a tech from the early 20th century. A digital device with an analog input... I mean, come on! It's for the future.10
