Teaching 7-8 year olds the basics of web design. We're we're playing with CSS and changing colours of block elements and text. One girl put up her hand, completely confused as to why it wasn't working. Her code:
Oh the wonderful mind of children22
Another one, teach secure programming for fucks sake! This always happened at my study:
Me: so you're teaching the students doing mysql queries with php, why not teach them PDO/prepared statements by default? Then they'll know how to securely run queries from the start!
Teachers: nah, we just want to go with the basics for now!
Me: why not teach the students hashing through secure algorithms instead of always using md5?
Teacher: nah, we just want to make sure they know the basics :)
For fucks fucking sake, take your fucking responsibilities.31
Bulma framework, thanks for existing!
Lightweight, CSS only, very fucking easy to use and understand and a beautiful!
As a backend/server/security guy, front end is hell on earth for me. I understand the basics but that's it.
This fucker makes it so simple!19
Today let me see how much of a better HTML/CSS lecturer I had before. The new guy just does everything from W3Schools while the older one, after telling us the basics, just gave us .psd files and let us figure out what was what and we learned a lot from that.2
Employee of a customer of my company asked if anyone was available for evening lessons of the basics if linux for his son because he needs this to go to the next year.
I'm going to teach the kid the basics tomorrow for as far as possible and will be paid as well 😊16
A couple of weeks back, I met some of the kids from my old school. They had joined together to form a small team and were designing and deploying websites for local businesses.
Turns out that they were mailing each other and using Dropbox to manage the source code. This had been going on nearly for an year.
I spent a couple of hours showing them how to use git and gitlab. Basics on committing, pushing, pulling, branching and merging.
I will never forget the look on their faces! They had seen God and its name is Git.7
Bought a dedicated server a while ago and now have around 1800gb out of 4 disks in it.
Hardly knew how to work with proxmox/raid setups and so on a few days ago.
Can configure the basics without thinking as for now!
Gotta love learning stuff with open technology and seeing yourself grow 😃6
Me: I mean...kinda? Pretty Noobish still...
Friend: But you could like show a buddy of mine some basics right?
Me (thinking to myself...the best way to test your knowledge is to teach it...): well...sure...
Friend: Great here is their info!
*Drives an hour away*
*sits down with this friend of a friend*
*busts out laptop*
Friend of friend: So how long have you been a Java Developer?
Me: -_- oh fuck...
I hate this attitude of my study (when i studied):
"it might be a good idea to teach the students how to program securely by default?"
"oh no but we just want to teach them the basics"
"so why not the secure basics by default?!"
"nah we just want them to get started and understand it, that's all. We'll get to the secure way later on"
Well, fuck you.17
In my 1st semester, they taught us C++ basics
In my 2nd semester, they didn't teach us shit about CS.
In my 3rd semester, they taught us C basics
In my 4th semester, they taught us Java basics
In my 5th semester, they are teaching us Scratch and Python basics
Can you be fucking done with basics already for fuck sake? I'm a fucking Front End Developer here interning with companies and getting paid whilst I pay a fucking huge sum as college fee and learn fucking basics I knew back in high school? And you're teaching me Scratch, what the fuck is wrong with you; kids in pre-school are taught scratch. Fuck you education system, India!
Which countries should I consider for my post grad?
I'm so fucking done here.26
I forced my friends to use git(hub) as vcs because their project was in a usb-to-usb state, which was unacceptable for me. So I offered them my help and uploaded it (with a little bit of a forced consent) to github, to end this misery. Of course I helped them the basics of git. Now they automatically use git(hub) as vcs and to share their code.
I feel proud for this :)11
My first ever programming lesson was pretty awkward. I had zero knowledge of any coding so even the basics were new. Everytime the teacher said "string" I was kinda cringing and feeling awkward, but nobody else seemed bothered. I was laughing inside like the teenager I was, looking around for someone to share a giggle with. But nothing.
The word "string" in dutch means thong. Me not knowing any other uses for this word was a little flustered 😬.5
My sister's college is making them do their Final Year Project in VISUAL BASICS 6.
I mean WHY !?!?
Why use a software that's discontinued and they'll never use?11
"Holy mother of fuck. This shit is soooo interesting."
- My roommate after I taught him basics of programming. May the main() be with him.12
3 fucking years already that I introduced fucking git in this company and people still fail to grasp the fucking basics... Wtf?
If you push a fucking change wait for the fucking message ... If a fucking fail message appears telling you to pull before pushing to remote, just don't ignore it... Wtf... I can tell it is the case just by looking at the message template, I don't even need to read the motherfucker...
And its not that they are stupid, those are smart motherfuckers we are talking about...28
I'm a backender, Linuxer (servers + cli included) and security person.
For some projects I do need to write my own frontends and that, in general, IS my worst css experience.
HTML is quite manageable but CSS, except for the basics, is fucking Chinese to me.
So yeah, about every goddamn project that includes ME having to do frontend stuff is/has been the worst HTML/CSS experience.16
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
Who the fuck is able to not understand the basics of git. With ten years, supposedly , of front end experience. How in the hell do you not understand version control.18
Been a jr. dev at a company that's badly in need of more devs. So they hire a sr. dev to work w/ me. Dude's got yrs of xp over me, so he should be ramped up in no time, right?
Jk, he doesn't even know the basics of git. Also, his code is shit. If he's not let go anytime soon, at least I'll look awesome relative to this guy come performance reviews ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.3
I'm so upset when developers starts to say that mac books are better and faster, even with windows, just because of what? Magic?apple logo? Compare them with a dell xps 15 with i7hq, ssd on pci xpress and if you care about display the 4k version is far better than retina... And no osx it's not faster than windows 10, there are comparison on the same hardware... Come on developers, you suppose to know the basics... If you prefer the macbook for design, because it's cool, fashion, light apple logo, ui, it's ok... Feel free to use it. But don't say things not true74
I need more practice on Objects and Arrays as it is not crystal clear yet.
I am loving this. Thank you all for your support.
Ive just bought a domain name for my nephew of now 36 hours old. Ive a really common lastname and it took me 8 years to get a domainname with my name in it.
By the time he is ten (or how old they will be when they get their first email address) he will have his own personalized email and when they learn the basics of programming he can use his own domain for his site.8
Thus far I've had little success trying to teach code to people I know.
My best friend told me that he was serious about learning. He asked me about my recommendation would be. Against all odds, and after small demonstrations he asked to learn about Java.
I made some coffee and braced myself. Either the dude is a hidden genius or I am an amazing instructor, but he got the whole thing. I introduced him to the basics, oop, variables etc and he got it down in one session. He was able to understand errthing a do a little code along.
To be able to learn, is an opportunity. To be able to teach, is a privilege.
Cheers to another successful iteration of The #HourOfCode, by Team ACM BVP in association with Code.org. It was amazing teaching the students of 5th standard the basics of programming and logic building, and quite surprising to see how quickly they were able to grasp the concepts!18
/* Hello world. I am new to this community and just wanted to announce. I am here! About me? I am a student from Hannover in Germany and some dudes told me about this social app. Currently we are learning basics of C (I guess it is version 89) */7
Me: Bro look, I have learnt so many things from the past couple of days.
My senior: Congrats on finishing up the basics
Me: Those were just basics???...///!!! 😜3
Learning a new programming language:
1. reading basics
2. creates small programs
3. plan new projects
4. search everything else in the internet
5. output: we have become code gods
*winks at stack overflow and github*5
Has anyone here ever used tinkercad.com? (for simulating Arduino setups, or other circuits)
Where can I find community content for circuits? They make it so easy for their 3D models.. But not for their circuits..
Also, can someone tutor me in the basics of circuits over telegram?
(for those of you whom have never heard of it, I attached an image ^~^)14
Lets check out the dev in you.
Problem: Print "Hello World" in C in such a way that you cannot use any semicolon anywhere in the program.
Try this without using internet.
Hint: You only need to know basics of C.52
Robots done, for now! Well, the basics are done. Just fueling up at the moment :)
Tomorrow I'll put up a little gif of it moving around, but I wanted to get this out as soon as possible, because making physical things isn't my strong point, and I ran into a lot of problems
Shoutout to my school for having a free to use laser cutter3
I mean I've read rants on here about people not knowing the basics of programming, but 15 lectures in I would assume that the other students knew the difference between a char and a string at least.
For some reason the office I work for is paying for a designer to become a front end developer and she gets to take the classes one work time. Any time I want to further my career or pay I have to pay out of pocket and it can't interfere with work. Additionally I have to deal with her asking me every other day why I use Sublime over something else.
Basically I use Sublime because I spent too much time researching new things to try and learn yet another editor. If you wanna use brackets, cool, if you wanna use atom, cool, if you wanna use notepad, cool. I don't give a flying fuck what editor you use, you're writing CSS, I'm writing PHP, if you can count to 4 spaces, and not look at my code, I'm not going to scream at you.
She comes in each day and sits at her desk watching video after video on beginner HTML and CSS asking me mundane questions breaking my concentration at least once an hour.
I know we all started somewhere but Google was my best friend and should be yours as well.7
People who know basics of HTML, CSS and start searching for the web developer Jobs are the same people who buys a pencil and assumes that he is an artist 😀12
Here I'm celebrating my birthday away from home doing first job as developer.
I started my journey one year back when i had no knowledge of any programming language except basics of C.
Learnt python, Js and many more things.
Prepared for interview, got selected in first interview.
It's been more than 2 months at the new job.
Really it feels so great to see people using your developed tools in real life.
Hope to be more successful and to contribute more to community. 🤞11
"I have nothing to hide."
I admit, I did utter these disgraceful words once. But I now take privacy seriously.
What is really sad and potentially dangerous is the fact that younger people do not give a fuck about privacy. Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram - these people use these apps and do not pay ANY attention to what might be the consequences of their actions.
The more data they own, the more they own you. We should start a privacy basics course in high school. Things could get out of hand in the future, as if they already aren't.18
Finished learning the basics of HTML. Now to move onto CSS! Really enjoy learning Web Development despite it only being the basics.10
Some years ago I was in cyber security in the military being shown some new tech for our use. Was challenged to try and get past it after being explained it's basics. Took me one long line in Linux about 10 seconds.
Anomaly detection firewall with machine learning seemed like a good idea.
Setting it to aggressive response and then change the package header to the firewall's own address however made it kill itself.
We didn't deploy that firewall that I know of.5
So I was very bored in IT class and I asked my teacher to give me some extra exercises. What did he gave me??? Scratch. A Tool for 8 year old kids to learn some programming basics.. fml7
Unity3D Game Dev Interview
Interviewer: What is reflection and why would you use it?
Me: Gives overview of system and how I've used it in games before.
Interviewer: Sorry that was a trick question, Reflection is really dangerous and slow. You need to go back and learn the basics.
A huge portion of Unity is built upon Reflection based systems, the entire Monobehaviour base relies on it. Their events system uses it, animation and timeline. I guess their team needs to go back to the drawing board.
How is this person a senior dev?3
When you're a freelance web developer with 3 years of experience and they be teaching you basics of programming in college6
Remove all the outdated and unwanted topics which were taught during Indus Valley civilization like: 8080 microprocessor, Java 6, Software Testing principles etc. And add more interesting and realistic topics like: Algorithm design, graphs and other data structures, Java 8 (at least for now), big data, Basics about AI, etc.7
Hey hackers! It's me again 😀
If I wanna be an awesome pentester / bug hunter , what should be my main focus?
Low level programming?
I've already passed network + and basics of ccna and I already know pentesting using kali and I know c and python as well.
Just not sure where to go next and keep using kali packages makes me feel like a script kiddie (which is aweful 😬)
Dreaming to be able to write my own exploits and have my own 0day bugs👑
Thanks for any recommandation you would43
Sometimes I wished there was no internet, computers etcetera and that the world would go back to the basics. When people from a village knew each other and married a girl from your village and lived in a wooden hut in the mud.
This all can be so much better than how life is at the moment. People ignoring eachother, fighting wars by killing thousands without actually fighting.
And yes I know some of us wouldnt survive it, Im not sure I would with my chronic kneepain. I cannot hunt because of it. I could be a builder or farmer maybe?29
The tour provided with Golang is really nice for learning the basics..
go get golang.org/x/tour/gotour
go tool tour
starts a local webserver with the tour. The lessons and the exercises at the end of certain chapters are really easily understandable.
I think it might also be a good tool to refresh the knowledge about Golang for those that haven't used it in a while.1
//Well im just learning BT in android development. While i should read some book to school. I hope teacher can understand that creating an app is little bit more needed then reading some book. Because this is the project which i will post on G play so i need to take care of it.
But i dont understand the basics of BT OMG why they make it that complicated ohhhh.3
One time I was talking with a person, and I told him that I’m studying programming. I told him the basics of OOP and such. He then proceeded to say, “I know what programming is, I’ve done HTML before.”4
I'm a newbie in programming, just past the very basics and all. Which is why I am a bit frustrated when i see programmers use stack overflow. I barely even understand it.😏9
Like u know how CPUs rely on basics of subatomic physics? So right now, in 2018, the biggest use of quantum mechanics is porn. Just think about that.2
So I never had a proper education in IT. Started web development as a hobby, then some people started giving me money for it, and here I am, working as a fulltime web dev since 2001 and SEO expert since 2010.
Still, I sometimes wonder how much I really know compared to some fresh coder who just got out of university.
I know how to create great software from A to Z, but still I sometimes get the feeling that I am missing the fundamental basics.
Is that weird?4
I'm starting to realize, that if you just know the basics of researching, you can (most of the time) find better free resources, than paid ones, for learning about new things in this field.6
Local IT company proposes to give talks about the basics of web development in our school for one and a half week.
>"The first thing we need to do is to import jQuery in our webpage."
>Literally no mention of plain JS.
this is why jquery is still not dead...........6
That was a ton of growth in a year where I transitioned from a purely graphic design role to having an influence over development processes and rolled out a number of projects to production that I spearheaded.2
yay! Almost done learning basics Nodejs REST :D
Now time to learn how to make gitlab auto build and test, then new features to my little project
Next in line:
Testing UI in React Js/Native T_T13
Me: wanna go ask people what's HTML?
Friend (at least knows basics of HTML): yea
*We find a person*
Friend: hey, do you know what's HTML?
Someone else: what?
Me: what's HTML?
Someone else: ...
*Someone else runs away*
So last year i was competing in IT basics, school level went great so i went to state level. This is my first state competition ever and im really nervous, everyone is telling me things like "you've got the gift, don't worry" (by everyone i mean my mum) but i keep believing that everyone who went to the state level has a 'gift' for IT. So the competition is about to start and a guy next to me raises hand to ask a question and im like so nervous that he is going to ask something i dont understand or is too complicated for me. The guy fucking asks how to get past the login screen because he clicked on an admin account and it is requesting a password. The fucking guest account is right next to the admin account that he clicked on and i proceed to help him and i click on the guest account and he litteraly asks me "wow i didnt know that was possible". What the fuck. IT BASICS STATE LEVEL. DOSENT FUCKING KNOW HOW TO ENTER A GUEST ACCOUNT. Next on, the competition is over and we have to enter passwords to submit our online test so as i walk to exit the classroom i see a guy struggling and i ask him like dude you need to write a password and submit! Hes like umm yeah i know but umm you see... I dont know how to write a # (it was required as a password) .IT FUCKING BASICS STATE LEVEL.DOSENT KNOW HOW TO WRITE A '#'. Later on i got 8th place and the fucker who didnt know how to write # got 1st because he knew fucking exel questions that i didnt.4
Nobody told you you had to make a REST API, but if you want to call it REST, please learn the basics of what it means...2
Guys any idea how to do fucking 2D terrain perlin noise generation i have basics like it can make flat terrain but i need to add perlin noise and in C no C++ C#2
I am still in the state of finding a programming language to be my expertise. I'm sick of learning the basics of so many things.
Very recently, I found myself into version control with Git/GitHub. I made my own github.io repo and worked on it while following some random tutorials on the Internet. It was cool and I was happy.
So I thought about contributing to other repos. The ugly part? I cannot understand any open source code out there other than mine because my knowledge of specific languages are very shallow.
I learn the basics of a lot of languages. When things get hard, I lose a bit of motivation and started to be interested in other, perhaps more rewarding things(which are usually harder). This is likely because I don't know what's best for me.
I want to get real.16
My brother, who is a programmer too, throwed the big java book at me and said: Read this and you'll have a job. So I read it and got a job. I'm a practical learner, so I just picked up the basics from the book. OOP and all that I learned while working. It was like a decently payed apprentice position. But I was my own teacher.3
Tired learning reactJS had no luck! It went above my head!
This is when i understood the importance of basics!16
Bought an online lecture on NodeJS from Udemy for a hefty price. It only outlines basics and does not even demonstrate a CRUD operation.
I mean c'mon!! what a bunch of cunts!7
We hired a new senior dev. The lead architect is going over basic bit branching and commits with him. This new job already feels like a dumpster covered in petrol.3
Why is it that a lot of developers don't have the most basic of Windows knowledge? For example, a lot of people complaining about Windows Update. I mean, it's just a setting you can configure and a service you can stop and turn off..
It all sounds ironic.9
1) Heck yeah, great idea
2) Sit like 60 minutes there thinking about a name for the project
3) Build the basics
4) ..meh fuck it3
Becoming a dev at all, I'd say. I started off with only knowing the basics, and am working in my third language. But I love the challenge.5
*My first internship*
Me: Hey, I'm unable to fix this issue with the interface.
Tech Lead: *Goes on giving me a lecture from the very basics* So, An Interface has the method declaration but not the.....
Me inside: I FUCKING KNOW WHAT AN INTERFACE IS JUST TELL ME HOW DO I FIX THIS FUCKING ISSUE.
Me outside: Right!6
finally, after a week of helping my friend to learn the basics of front-end web development, he got the internship at one of my friend's office ( he set up the interview on my request).
It does feel good.2
Finally learned the basics of git and remote git servers. I wanted to do that for so long and now I finally have it done!1
Jumping back and revisiting some basics of game development that I've ignored for a while and decided to follow a tutorial for building a 2D minecraft clone just to see how easy it is to incorporate some of my engines capabilities...
Every single fucking function he is creating does not have arguments and instead uses hard coded numbers repeated throughout... Fucking send help7
Stay curious and open-minded. If you hear something new take some 5-10 min and Google it. You will surprise much people even if you know just basics.
And if you're a fast learner, be aware, some people will be intimidated and try to oust you. But stay positive!

I absolutely love the dev community but one thing I just can't stand is the snobbery that permeates it. I don't understand why some devs expect non devs to know or understand the intricacies of computer programming or even computers in general when it's really not their job to do so.
"Ahhhhh!! How DARE this non dev PEASANT ask me about hacking Facebook accounts!! Does he NOT understand the basics of DNS spoofing and social engineering!!1!!1! bahh"2
I did a mixed degree, CS and linguistics. In terms of the programming knowledge I picked up, it was about as useful as w3schools. Good for the basics, but the rest I either figured out myself or learned on the job. I did learn a lot in general though, and made an awesome friend and met people from all over the world. So yeah, the bottom line is: I think it was worth it. I think it did help with one or two job interviews too, but the reaction was never more than "oh, you have an MA degree, nice"3
Started teaching my 4 yr old daughter basics of instructions. My drawing room has 2x2 feet tiles. I block some tiles by keeping some object in that. There is a target. My kid has to tell me to turn, go right, left, straight, back to reach target n avoid blocked tiles. We have a good fun time n she is picking up fast :)1
Holy shit Sololearn is actually such a Well Designed app to just learn the Basics of languages. Really smooth Animations and Fun Quizzes
(Btw, This Text was written with Google Keyboard which some how is so bad, i need to Switch Back to SwiftKey like STOP CAPITALIZING RANDOM WORDS GOOGLE!!)4
Tried learning python like over 10 times from the basics. No success!
Being a Java developer for about 5 years, I think I can't live without semicolons 😂3
A programmer can code.
A developer is a jack of all trades jumping into any stack and mastering the basics in a weekend.
So why the fuck can't I grasp humans. Their code is spaghetti....
Debugging gives way to many problems...
Atleast my personal code has a feature creep and for once it's a good thing!3
Today I am going to install Ubuntu on my girlfriend's computer as she want to start learning basics of Linux. Any other distro recommendations for a noob in Linux?23
I've been slowly but surely writing the skeleton of a game on my Github.
Now to actually learn the basics of Github so I don't have to copy and paste my code every time there's an update....6
Man learning I’m not good at learning new languages, I get to the point where I have the basics of the language ex: Conditional statements, loops, functions, classes, structures, file manipulation, etc but idk what to do after that, is this where I start learning libraries cause I still get the feeling I’m not at that step yet.
Before you ask, yes I know I am heavily over thinking this4
Oh gosh... This week a "friend" of mine will have a job interview for a company I am working at. This guy really just can't Code. He has no understanding of clean code, abstraction etc. He just knows the basics. But he loves to brag how good he is and got his bachelor degree. Damn I hate this guy and I hope HR won't hire him.7
Had Weekend free for my own...No Kid No wife...just plenty time...what did?...I brew beer 🍺😎👌...of course I didnt used any ready-to-go mixtures...all done from the basics. Feels so good11
I went to gym people there helped me to become fit.
I went to common kitchen in my hostel, people their taught me basics of cooking.
I went to learn code people mocked me for using Java(replace with any technology) not python(replace with any technology with swag)
To all people who hardcoded stuff like tables in HTML and even rant about how much work this was or how many lines of code they wrote, please stop the madness, please don't talk until you get the basics of programming and why computers are quite handy to handle repetitive tasks.4
F**king sh*t management...there was a training schedule for Casandra (for basics and advance), I added my name to interested list and as I wanted my site ppl know I sent a email to HR stating to look at it and add more ppl....now I am out from the list and a line manager's name got added...WTF....why the hell he needs rather then a programmer... :(2
Starting. Seriously I'm closing that gap on turning 30 and I'm tired of being a wage slave so I'm teaching myself by using resources I've found online but the immense amount of knowledge I need seems unsurmountable.
I'm coming home from work and learning for at least two hours before going to bed and going back to work but it seems so far until I get to be creating stuff instead of just trying to absorb as much of the basics as fast as possible.5
so, docker in windows looks like a mess, could not set up a laravel environment easily, then my last resort was to use a virtual machine and adios docker from my system12
My first gig straight out of uni was on a project where my role required fixing an FTP client to upload files from a clients machine to our server. It was a spreadsheet. VBA. An excel spreadsheet. FTP client. A spreadsheet.
Me: "why are we using VBA for this?"
PM (was a dev 10+ years ago and started the basics of this 'ftp client'): "VBA is great." *Stern face*
So, right now I'm 16 atm I know some basics of php,python but I love Python more than php. So my question it's:
Most of the universities in my country for computer science, are based on java, c++ and some another stuff.
What should I do? Should I start learning C++ / Java or continue using python?10
Learned HTML with a 50ct book from a 1 €-shop. Got interested in forums and learned PHP by analyzing phpBB and Itschi (you probably don't know the latter). Learned Java through school though it was only the basics. Now I'm a full stack developer at a Norwegian company. Fully self-taught.1
I think we should focus more on the basics rather than a specific language, framework, etc.
Maybe it's just me, but it's not uncommon to see people struggling at problem solving, because they were never taught (or they never learned) the logic behind an algorithm, or some simple data structures. I'm not talking about the pure mathematical research (fascinating nonetheless). Just a basic commom knowledge on which build your own skills upon. Nowdays I believe we (me too) rely too much on memory, instead of "creativity".1
Focus of mastering one language, don't jump around to every web langue out there.
Once again, I have to go with the guy that, after seeing my horrible (I can't highlight this enough) code, decided that even I wasn't hopeless, and went on teaching me the basics of software engineering, top-down design and unit testing. All of this in two days, but it gave me the motivation to work on it, and look at me now: I'm a devRanter :')
My team is full of unexperienced coworkers. Some are students (not computer science), some just finished their bachelor but again not in computer science or something related. It is absolutely ok if there are unexperienced coworkers, but that's too many and all I do is teaching the basics of programming.3
Well I feel like an idiot thanks to my IT teacher. This guy, this fucking guy thinks that we’re seeing computer for the first time. He’s literally saying “You see this black bar on the bottom? That’s taskbar.”. It’s like he’s teaching 7 years old childs 😤
But the worst part is my class mated don’t know such basics! They don’t know how binary code works, what is motherboard, how to login to school domain on Windows.
But on the flip side, they look at me like at the God 😏7
So, I’m in a web development class. I already have been messing around with web development actively for a year or so. Right now we are learning the basics like tables and headings and stuff. We are told to be using the <center> tag and bgcolor attributes. I didn’t like that so I starting using CSS and literally don’t follow half the instructions, and I am still passing with an A.
The REAL fun thing is that we have to use an unclosed <p> paragraph tag for a "line break". Since that’s what "real" web developers use.
All the tags have to be in capitals too, but I guess that’s personal preference.4
Have no Degree (the paper, I did study), currently doing a master to actually get the damn paper.
Have been working with a good pay for a few years now.
The Degree will help pass some HR filters on the dumbest companies, but sometimes you do want to work there.
The degree does nothing in the new professional word in this profession.
BUT sometimes, a degree gets you information that you will not get on your own that help you grow faster. Talking about the basics that everyone says are useless... But they are not.1
Probably every time is use new API.
Like today i needed to use Google maps API (Ahhhhh google) and i was getting a shit ton lot of errors at first after 1/2 hour all errors fixed and after 1 hour i learnt the basics of the API.
But man did i felt bad.1
I've been learning to code since I was 13, ~2 years ago. I did learn the basics of many programming languages but I cannot stick to one programming language to learn deeper. Also when it gets harder I just switch to another language and try that one.6
Project managers suck, they don't know anything about programming and development, at least they should know the basics, it's the worst and most stupid job, and the worst thing is that they make more money than a developer.2
Yesterday I've finished the basics of my first api at work. Now going to start on the mvc front end.
Finally learning C# ASP .NET and how to do it right.
So far everyone is happy at work1
Today I gave Php a try, I leaned the basics and oriented object programming of it . but now I dont know how to make UI in PHP . ans I need some advice what should I learn next im a .net programmer36
Be me, get a consultant job, go to a supposedly great client that has fame of getting scouted by Google. (attn: I doubted all this shit before I started)
Learn the basics by a awesome mentor and trial/error stuff at the same time to get the hang of things, after that was done, I noticed there was no documentation whatsoever, code is spaghetti and your documentation, good luck!
Royal spaghetti, you can't make heads or tails of it, dev code in production, empty try/catch blocks, empty statements, if (true)... (incl. their core classes)
Keep in mind this is a multi milion dollar company...
Someone please understand my pain...6
Why the fuck do people at certain universities and colleges think they have to translate programming related expressions? They sound extremely stupid and often misleading for someone who studied CS in English.
I had an interview recently at a company where the interviewer, who most likely studied at one of those unis, asked questions in our native language and I had to ask for clarification multiple times because of this shit. Now they probably think I'm not even familiar with some of the basics. 😤1
I started doing teaching assistance in an Introduction Course to R (for the 3rd year in a row); for the big majority of them, this is the first course where they learn some basics of coding.
Now, I know many of us were the same when we started, but sometimes I wonder... have I ever really been as lost as some students? I mean, I had to teach to a student how to move a .txt from the downloads folder to another folder. Wasn't this supposed to be the digital generation?
Even my code is never as frustrating as teaching a programming language... I forecast more rants in the following days!8
Just had some problems with a cronjob I've been playing around which kept my pc running for like 10 mins after i used `shutdown -H`.. My mother asked me why i wa so mad at my pc
Me: A cronjob is stopping ubuntu from shutting down.
She: What's ubuntu?
Me: the os I've told you about the whole last weekend
She : what's OS?
I and my father literally explained her Ubuntu and Linux basics for at least 2 hours after she asked why my pc is looking "so purple" (i was using the console).
btw got the bug fixed :)
Anyway, so I've been learning the basics of Python and Kotlin since a week, I just wanted to ask if I could get IDEs and resources for both of them.
Also I know more IRL languages than programming languages, just saying.4
Hey everyone, I am trying to learn how to become better a Java but I don't really know where to begin. I already know some of the basics and have made a few minor projects but I really want to advance. I was hoping someone could provide me with some ideas for simple yet complicated projects so that I can further my knowledge of the Java programming language.4
Starting to learn neural network...
I have been interested in Machine Learing from long time back.
getting the basics corrected now....
Never thought calculas is going to be required in programming.2
I really hate slow developers
No scrap that I hate developers who claim they have experience and knowledge but are so slow and can’t grip the basics.
Surely if you’re are experienced you should be able to work independently and not have someone hold your hand the entire time.
We will never get things done we are a small team as it is you gotta pull your weight man12
Ok, so the new programming language Q# is out. VERY exciting for me! I love the idea of quantum computing! Then I realize that developers will need to know the basics of quantum physics to use it effectively. Yay or nay? Welp, those extremely big, expensive machines won't program themselves (yet).2
There are 6 regular polytopes:
All hail the Utah Teapot!2
Wow, I thought Australia's subjects were up-to date with modern technology, but as my year 11 IPT course has proven... No.
Genuine Questions from it:
• Where are Web pages stored?
Most web pages are dynamically generated, so... RAM?
•Locate one webpage that uses ASP. Save a copy of this webpage (file name must = asp.mht)
Chrome Doesn't Even Support that as a save able file format any more!!!!
•Visit the webpage [error 404 anyway why write it]
Wow I can click hyperlinks I thought it was just a fancy color added to the text :|
•Add this webpage to your favorites. Supply one (1) screenshot showing this webpage as one of your favorites.
I ask; Who hasn't bookmarked a webpage in their life at the age of 17, and who actually calls them favorites.
•Press the "Back" Button to view the page you were previously on, take a screen shot to prove you doing so.
I am a rebel, I used my magic fingers to press the button without a mouse (keyboard shortcut)
•Press the "Forward" Button to view the page you were on before you went backwards, take a screen shot to prove you doing so.
I never would of guessed :|
•Take a screen shot after opening multiple tabs in Internet Explorer
•View the HTML source of the webpage www.google.com, and save a screen shot
Why not the actual file, really? bloat much?
•Take one screen shot of your Internet Explorer Search History
•What is a Web browser and what tasks does it perform?
Well.... Do you have a page for indepth analyse? Or do you literally what me to say "It let's you load stuff from dat interwebz, via requesting content from a server"
Are we talking server side? or client?
•Define what CSS is in relation to web pages
Do I even need to say fellow ranters ;)
When I was taking a programming course as a Mathematics prerequisite, and then object oriented programming basics (inheritence, interfaces specifically) all just clicked at once. Immediately decided I was going to pursue the computer science major instead of math.2
Question here - what do you guys think of Kotlin?
Do you also think it'll be sufficient to learn Kotlin and not java to programm for Android?
I just began the transition, it's fun playing around with it, but a friend of mine wants to learn Kotlin to learn Android programming (and not java, he only has java basics).
What's your opinion on all this?13
When you realize that all those years using windows washed away all your knowledge about using Linux.
I feel like a dumb idiot now while struggling to get shit done on my newly installed mint distro. Younger, I used to read that very fat book my father had on his desk, with all the basics on Linux, I don't have it around anymore.
Any "up to date" good book or website of reference to refresh that rusty brain of mine?1
Spent two hours explaining to an intern the basics of version control and why you must always commit and pull before you push. He claims he understood how it worked. I come back the next day only to see my code was overwritten because he pushed and never pulled.. I get yelled at by my boss because he can't see the changes I made and assumes I was slacking off the previous day :/8
Had to work with a lazy, stupid idiot who (literally) couldn't declare an empty string. Got in via nepotism and not only were there no basics but also no willingness to improve.
Something tells me that throwing someone out shouldn't be a pleasant thing to do but hell, I'm so happy that we can finally stop carrying that piece of dead weight and get back to pure coding without having to teach Programming 101 on the side.4
Being able to learn the basics of many languages so that I can do things the fastest way.
Because the Dutch national railway uses fucking XML for their api5
I'm in a senior level game design course, where me and two others have to create an actual game. I picked my teammates out bc I thought they've already taken classes in the subject(as they are both seniors and I'm a sophomore taking this as a final class for my minor). Turns out, they haven't taken any courses in game design and know nothing about the basics of making a game... FML, good thing they can code I guess lol.😅😓2
I have absolutely no respect for developers who can't properly touch-type.
You don't see many cooks who don't know how to handle a knife, do you?13
We’d love to get at complete ease with vim but we’re struggling to learn and still only know the basics, so we diss vim users out of jealousy.2
When I started uni and I took my first programming subject (Data Structures) I hated it as much as I could. My teacher was a complete @$$hole, he wasn't good at teaching, and most people were failing the subject. When I finished that semester I swore I would never be a programmer...
11 years later and I have a Master's in IT and have been working as a Software Engineer for 6+ years. #life
I wish I had a better experience learning the basics1
Ever visited https://www.instructables.com ??
DMNNNN I just can't leave... So many cool Ideas...
I don't have anything to do with the site, found it yesterday while searching for arduino stuff, and MANNNN .... It has the best pratical tutorials I ever saw... Not like most, where they teach you the basics...
Most sites, first arduino APP, light a Led
Instructables, First App, Instructions with pictures and videos on how do connect the Arduino, install IDE (this is the most basic tutorial after all). then the tutorial, Light 4 leds and do a lightshow...
I'm In Love
Btw, new project, got my old Niko Dc Car working again, after like 30 years...2
wk48 best question:
My go to question for dev interviews is how do you find all prime numbers from 2 to x because there's so much room for optimisation.
Start with the basics, loop over every number and check if it's divisible by any number less than it, then record the prime numbers and check only those, then move to something like the sieve of eratosthenes then reduce the problem space and only iterate through 2 to sqrt(x)5
Good oop is hard to implenent and keep track off in my experience.
I have seen projects so hard which have such large hierarchies and reused components that even the most minimal change breaks an entire change. Dependency injection is a pretty cool tool to use, but I have seen more people fuck it up and make something that supposedly removes tightly coupled components be the extreme opposite.
Remember your basics people. Fuck
Ok everything is good now. Happy thoughts...nuthing but happy thoughts16
at the very beginning of League of Legends (I was freshman in high school) my friend and I wanted to create a team. we needed a website for it and I learned the basics. I stop playing but I never stop programming1
First time posting. But I need an advice, I want to learn a programming language to get a better job. I have just the basics of C#, should I keep going with C# or go with F#? I heard a lot of good thing about F#. Thanks. You guys are awesome!6
If I had a penny for every time, I go on a
site and go to contact/find us and see this.
Which part of you need an API key do people not get?2
Java Vs. C++
Ok, so I know a bit of Java, still lots to learn but isn't there always! My question to all you poly-linguist programmers is; once you know the basics of OOP are there any obvious hurdles in learning new languages? For instance - do you sometimes accidentally use some Java in C++? Would you all advise to stick to one language and learn it to genius level or does it make you a better programmer to understand a multitude of languages?
Hi, so I want to get into Android App development.
I know the basics of Java and I have already written some simple apps with Java.
However I would like to get more serious with it and now I wonder if I should directly start writing apps in Kotlin or if I should write them in Java.7
"Hi! I want to learn how to hack, can you teach me? My friend forgot his password and I need to hack his facebook for him"
I've got so many requests for hacking facebook and other social media accounts, email accounts, steam accounts, you name it, and I'm completely sick and tired of these for heavens sake.
I'd be happy to help people get started on ethical hacking, but if the motivation to learn is "hakin fcebok", I highly doubt that there would be enough patience and/or self-discipline to actually learn even the basics.1
I'm new in the programming world; when I need to learn something new I generally look at documentation and articles to get an understanding of the basics.
Then, if it's still interesting to me, I just try it out.
Sometimes I might ask a fellow more experienced programmer or a teacher to explain it to me.1
Did two bachelors (network/system then dev).
Well I learnt some basics during the first year; but then being curious and searching things by myself made them completely useless.
Almost every interview I did were successful and didn't asked for my degrees but what I was actually able to do, code and understand.2
Alrighty starting to get basics of vim down. From now on it's mainly rinse n repeat until it flows. Any suggestions what else to do to make myself a useful vim-python "ide"? Is there a way to get syntax highlighting, auto complete etc? What else is needed to get a cozy, practical vim python ide?1
One of our past dudes. His desk is right beneath mine, and he had the task to write integration tests. Problem: no experience in programming. So I taught him the basics to perform his task.. today it is one of my best friends3
Lost one day mounting my CNC.
Still on the basics...
Found out that I baddly welded the two fucking easy drivers and made a bad connection I can't undo now.
So the drivers are always on and stepping :(
5€ to the trash.4
Had a task of service discovery, went through following phases:
1. UDP broadcast
2. Wait why not Bonjour?
3. JmDNS for desktop works great
4. Android NSD on Lollipop, this is easy
5. Kitkat WTF..!! Why did you put it there when it's so buggy.
6. Replaced Android NSD with JmDNS and it's great
7. Network switching on Android... done
8. Wait how are others doing it.. JmmDNS.. awesome.. fuck not working...
9. Read mDNSJava is much faster... replace JmDNS.. why haven't they uploaded parent pom on repo
10. mDNSJava freezing my Android device... revert to JmDNS
11. Let's see if it works with Wifi Direct.... Come on why aren't you working...
12. UDP broadcast it is 😢2
Started doing the cms, looks neat
But i haven't even finished the home page yet.
I just love to do the backend and seems that a cms cover a lot of the basics and more
PS : it is a personal project :D1
Why isn't Vue.js more popular? (it's not rhetoric, I actually don't know)
During the last weeks I've been learning the basics of the more popular JS frameworks and from the ones I saw, Vue seemed like the best option (lightweight, virtual DOM, simple documentation, alternative to React Native). Nonetheless, React & Angular are more widely used by companies and personal projects. Does anyone know why that is?2
I mean the beauty in our industry is that you can learn almost everything online and for free. You learn some basics and then you build upon that knowledge to build something more complex. So why the hell should I pay so much money just to listen to someone who tells you the same stuff that you would've read online and for free anyway?2
So am teaching a friend of mine some Java basics. Unfortunately he keeps insisting on using Eclipse to be taught. Tried showing him the beauty of InteliJ but he says it's too confusing 🙃. So here I am typing some full codes that I could have magically inserted on InteliJ. I don't know how long I can take it.26
I start reading about it, from their website, forums, blogs, etc.
Next thing I usually do is to take a look at stuff made of that tech and mess around to see what it looks like.
Then I pick a book about the subject, set up the basics and start from the very beginning, even if the prologue starts with "programming is..."
At some point I start to connect concepts previously seen in the first step with the chapter I'm in, or even identify elements discovered in the second step.
Works for me.
So, got tired of trying to learn on top of the knee (Portuguese expression) and decided to do some courses to get the basics.
Where do you recommend I go?
1. Course must be free
2. Not over 100 hours per course (I'll have 1 to 2 hours a day if I really focus on it)
What I need:
Language (lvl of knowledge)
- Python (know the basics) + kivy (basics)
- node.js (0)
- Jquery ( 0 ) + Django (0)
I know there's lots of good courses out there and lots of dumb stupid ones, care to give your opinion? Thank you5
Went to college for 4 years learned very basics of everything. Started first job and just learned by doing, thank God for the Internet you can learn everything else you need from there.
I hate applying for jobs.
Because I spend time adding information to the job searching sites only to be forwarded to the individual company to enter my details once again.
Why can't they all just accept the details I have, at least carry over the basics.1
So I was in a training course today teaching us the basics of JIRA. (Turns out when they said basics, they really mean basic. I learnt nothing) Out of the blue, mid way through the lecture, a lady in her late 40's asks, "Can you copy and paste into JIRA". The worst part is, is the probability earns more than double my wage...1
Back to school after 4 months of internship. Lecture about how to make loops. I guess it's better to start slowly...
Oh and I'll be forced to work with PHP which I really hate. Wish I could have python or more JS.1
Well, i when I was 13 I thought that a bit extra knowledge before programming in school would be nice, so I bought a book about the basics of java. The books never mentioned the concept of an IDE, so I just used the windows editor and command lines.
And yes, you guessed right, the battles with the compiler were furious.
It's high time people start understanding the difference between 0 and NULL. A zero is a numerical 0 and null is just .4
In interviews, I tend to forget the basics while I can answer more advanced questions. For example, I can't for the life of me remember the four principles of OOP but I can talk about garbage collection in my main programming language.1
I went to bed and before sleeping opened an app on my phone that controls the music on my PC.
At first glance it looked like something was different so my first thought was "Ooh, they updated the app" and then I remembered that no, I didn't. I'm a lazy sack of crap that didn't update that app in a while and I didn't even implement everything.
On the plus side, I did actually get the basics working so... :D
Can't even find a proper way to learn android app development.. Some tutorials are way too basic and others way too advanced.. Even books arent of much help to me... I know the basics... How do i learn further :/ How do i code without having to look at some example every time ://9
Right now I just found out that I forgot the basics, but still able to do some complicated shit
Brain fart 🧠 💨1
HEY ya'll I'm a programmer in python or at least I know the basics. Well I want to get into deep learning and nueral networks and I was wondering what tools should I use because I'm already using pycharm professional as my IDE and I'm playing around with pytorch.9
Just got started with Ethernum programming. God, it feels so good after using JS for a long time. Right now I'm creating my own blockchain chat app to understand the basics.3
So I finally got to do something IT-related, searched for a small income besides BAFöG. Found a support place at an IT-security business. The interviewer asked me some basics about some encryption related stuff and because I knew what a DNS lookup is, I am the second best candidate from a dozen (the other one is studying IT) for the job (they want to hire 4) according to him, and he already turned down a M.Sci. who knew everything about different protocols but didnt know what a DNS look up is.
*happy about becoming a cog in the IT-machine*1
FUCK MY LIFE WHY CANT A RASPI BOOT FROM USB??! I'VE BEEN WORKING ON A PROJECT FOR IT FOR THE LAST WEEK, SPENT NIGHTS LEARNING ELECTRONIC BASICS AND GUESS WHAT? THAT FUCKING RASPIAN ON MY MICRO SD CARD IS NOT BOOTING. AND I CANT REINSTALL IT BECAUSE I HAVENT GOT AN FUCKING ADAPTER FOR THIS SHIT. I HAVENT BEEN USING A MICRO SD FOR YEARS.
AND NOW I CANT TEST MY PROGRAM BECAUSE I NEED THE RASPIS GPIO PINS :(6
That moment when your college lets you take a basics computer maintenance class even though you are in a computer oriented program... Free devRant browsing time I guess :/1
So I’m starting to learn C# is it a bad idea to use .NET Core to learn the basics of the language? And for the advanced stuff use visual studio when it’s needed? I’m just trying to avoid Visual studio tbh20
One thing that is really difficult is when you are writing let's say C code for months, and then you switch to C# or Python, you immediately use C-style logic and forgo the easier, shorter Python syntax!
I did a python kata on the Codewars website. After submitting it, I realized my solution was like 10x longer than every other solution. Talking about hand in face.
Stuck to basics and forgot about Python's amazing shortcuts. What are you going to do!1
I spent the majority of my afternoon trying to find a good site to help me improve on my coding but they all seem the same. I'm tired of switching sites and going all through the basics that I already know again and again. I need a project! Some sort of goal or maybe just switch languages.8
!rant / Joke
RoR dev (Me): Damn, I gotta learn more about that routing DSL... Shit's powerful.
Networker: That sentence made zero sense... Did you just use technobabble? Go to marketing you dweeb.
Well, Matz really trolled the networkers there...
DSL(Ruby) = Domain Specific Language.
Routing (Rails) = Defining URL Patterns and assigning them to controllers.
Networks(As far as I understand, I only know the absolute basics there):
DSL = Digital Subscriber Line
Routing = The act of passing a packet through another network
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "WE'RE ALL MAD HERE. I'm mad. You're mad."
And the weird penguin building a rails app is mad too I guess.1
4 years in high school (turbo Pascal, Java, c++, didn't learn much more than basics), summer course with Macromedia director, a few college courses/internship with html/css/flash.
But most of all, just working and learning as I go.2
I have learnt the basics of programming languages such as C and Python but have not learnt Algorithm and Data Structures in any exclusive way. Although we were taught little about algorithms in the class. So is it a good idea to learn these topics now from any online courses or MOOCs?4
TL;DR I want to add a vcodec to FFmpeg but don't understand the how or haven't found the right resources yet.
I just learned the very basics recently and thought it is great for some automation.
For now, I want to use it to compress my anime collection. I found a modded version of HEVC (x265) for anime, which I want to include as vcodec. Unfortunately, even after researching it a bit, I don't understand how to do so. Does somebody here know how to do it?
Warning: Readme.me contains anime images
In my university there was a programming teacher who taught the basics "algorithms and data structures". This was the first subject about programming ever.
He mostly just showed us the idea behind each and sometimes showed a slide of an algorithm or data structure in C. He was also supposed to carry out lab classes where he would teach us the basics of C.
He thought that programming could not be taught in class but only self learned... so he didn't do a single computer lab class the entire year. The rate of students who passed his subject the first time was low. We ended up talking to the dean and the teacher was given an assistant for the lab classes the next year. Fun right?2
Direct implementing major functionalities without learning core/basics concepts while learning any new framework or library.
My Grandma had an old PC in my childhood. That laid the stone. Then I took a "PC Basics" course in my hometown in 4th-grade, which covered Building a PC, programming it with the weird Turtle stuff and Lego Mindstorms.
Learned HTML in 4th grade. Tried C++ in 5th. Took a while to get serious, 10th grade Java gave the last kick. Studying CS now at the TUM and working as a Web Designer in parallel.
Not finding my passion for programming prior to college. All that time wasted playing WoW in high school.
I mean besides the basics of HTML to edit my MySpace page, I knew nothing for anything computer related.
Do you always make sure to understand the basics/fundamentals of a technique/solution/tool/.. you're using ?
I don't do it all the time and I feel that it's something I should do more often (or always?).3
Fuck you, webdev.
I had to explain to a new web developer about an Oracle database and Toad. Anyone remember Toad? I still remember not too long ago, developers knew the basics of relational databases and available client tools.
I finally have a vServer again, now I need to fill it with 'life': secure it, build a small website and mailserver.
The main idea is to have some basics to look more professionell. I'd love any tip and idea how idk, save work before I run into stupid beginner mistakes, or things you had good experiences working with when you had similar tasks? :)
OK, here are two questions I heard today in a TV quizz. I need you to answer them without looking up or reading the comments and tell me if the contestants in the TV quizz (who are lambda people, with an average IQ and education) have real education and general knowledge issues, or if these questions were really difficult for the layman, since they got them wrong.
I have a great interest in science and astronomy and to me they seem obvious. I cringe when people get them wrong, so I really need to know if it's normal to not know this kind of basic stuff or if there is a real problem her.
Here are the questions :
1) Elon Musk, in February 2018, launched a Tesla car in orbit around a star. Which star was it?
2) How many stars are there in the solar system?9
Ich need some help with Linux.
Ich want to switch from windows 7 to Linux. But want a "Windows desktop like" environment and I'm not so experienced with linux jet (just the basics). Can you help?15
Got introduced to it through university, learned the basics there. I got hooked on webdev, and have been learning myself new things every day!
The biggest fuckin problem with learning C++ is that you have no idea where to go next after you finish learning the basics.
Should I learn regex next or stdlib? If I wanna learn the standard library, where do I fuckin start?
IS THERE AN ACTUAL GOOD BOOK OUT THERE THAT DOESNT BECOME INDECIPHERABLE AT PAGE 203??3
Many years ago I was sent on a course to learn AS3. The morning the course started the first thing the teacher said was that their marketing department was ahead of the teachers and so the course will not be taught for AS3 but AS2 and that AS3 is like AS2. No asshole AS3 is not like AS2! Maybe in some basics but AS3 is fully OO and AS2 is not. I ended up telling the teacher stuff he didn't know yet about AS2 and AS3. What a fucking bummer.
I literally was fucking around in Python thinking I was doing some good, learned basics, kept switching languages, read about two books that did teach me a lot of stuff, stopped jumping between languages, still reading books, still learning, internet, exercises, books... YouTube had like 8% of participation in my learning process (Which is still going)
After working at one internship: I have covered the basics of Development.
After trying to publish my own app: I know nothing. I'm Jon Snow of programming.2
When you learn all the basics of a language but you can't even apply it 2 hours later. Such is programming.
Updated to pop_os 19.04
Xorg stuck on a login loop.
Checked the basics, still failed.
Guess who has a fresh Pop_os 19.04 install?8
So i've started learning Java. I used sololearn for the basics and bucky on YouTube for more advanced stuff. Does anyone have a tip what to try next? Or maybe some starter projects to really get to know more about the language?6
My friend is interested in web dev, and I'm a web developer. How can I quickly teach him the important parts and get him up to internship-ready level? He's already graduated college, but only really knows the basics of programming. Learns fast though. What do employers really look for?13
I never studied CS. This was probably around 2004 (I was 10), I just got my first own computer. I used to mess around with HTML and JS previously, like making obnoxious marquees and so forth, but then I met this guy on DC++ who taught me the basics of VB. Before that I'd always thought of people who could make compiled exes as magicians, and I suddenly became one of them. It was a very empowering moment. While others were playing, I coded apps such as a geometry calculator for school, a TCP chat program (not as cool as Zuckerberg's), and so on.1
I'm about to graduate and I have no idea what I'm doing. I tried learning the basics and even went through a lot of extra stuff. I can only say I dabbled in scripting, web scraping and a little bit of software development. However when I compare myself to my peers, I feel so out of place. I can't confidently say I know even the concepts I practiced. I am really interested in the field but I feel like I'm way behind and this is constantly nagging me. Is this normal or is there anything I can do about it?2
Even though I really started coding like 4 1/2 years ago and coded in c++ and c, i consider js as my real first language.
In one week, I worked through w3schools, to teach myself the basics.
Later on i started downloading library examples and tried to creatively destroy them.
Now, when I have to work with libraries, i often find myself in looking through their code.
Fuck, there‘s this cool tool react-admin. I want to use it as generic CRUD UI for my framework. Basics work already.
But fuck it this fucking react crap a PITA. Who for fuck‘s sake invented that shit? Damn facebook crackheads ..
JSX ... the worst idea ever.
I worked with vue before and then .. easy, just awesome.
But this crap is utterly unproductive, way too complex, ugly syntax, needs an unholy shit if dependencies, let alone the build system ...
Fuck u react fuck u ...5
One of the truth no one wants to say because what can not be can not be.... but...
Maven is fuck... bullshit... failure by design.
For each project I need an own settings.xml. Always something not working. The same artifactory password 10 times there. Null pointer exceptions all over the place. Basics like versioning not really solved.
In all my years with Ant I never had so much problems than with Maven.
This settings.xml is really a design failure. Crap.1
I'm in my final year of high school, 17 years old, hoping to go to TAFE to do a coding course. I've done some HTML, CSS and Java at school and I only really know the basics of them all. I've been learning python in my free time and fuck man is it confusing. I love coding but it's so confusing at times, I really need some words of encouragement. Thanks guys :)4
All of my programming knowledge (more like 95% of it) have been gathered by myself. I've started learning during secondary school - the basics everyone has to go through. But it was so awesome that I wanted more. So I've started digging through vast space of internets and books only to find that I know very little. I've had help in the university and high school (the other 5%), but it wasn't enough.
The best thing is - the feeling has never worn off. And I still want more, because it feels like learning magic - the only difference is magic doesn't exist 😃
Wk49 - Started by learning the basics from a C# book when I was around 14, then found a project I thought would be fun and started programming. My logic worked but wasn't the most efficient, but as I found more projects to do, my skills got better.
I'm now a full time programmer for a large company, I don't have any formal qualifications but now studying MTA.
You don't need uni to get a job in programming, just a passion for learning and patience.
I asked a new coworker to implement an interface that included an event.
He proceeded to write the implementation and subscribe to the event in the constructor...
When asked why.. he responded with we should know when the event fires.2
Going through the books and online exercises they just make you do the basics like loop a number 10 times to print out 0-9 or something like that. And the return keyword I usually forget about because I've never been told how I can actually use it for something.
I want to learn how I can use all of these and when I can use them, is there any books, videos, or courses I can look into? I'm sorry, this is probably a Sinbad question but I am just trying to get as much help as I can2
I learned that you should never trust someone saying "let me setup the basics for the project" if someone said that they'll probably come back with a book as thick as earth (round one) just to run that "basic" project. And yet it still won't run because errors and missing packages. Also they documented only half of the fixes they applied to get it running themselves.
Oh and then you only reached the point where you have no motivation left and only have a blank template to start.
Wouldn't, it be amazing if we could have smart merges that understand the basics of the laguage you are using, and umderstands changes like moving a function, and helps by giving suggestions on what could be done to fix the conflict?1
Not really a rant but..
I'm really into programming. My problem is that i dont know what to do. I know the basics of a few languages like C++, Java, Python, HTML(+CSS), js but i want to start doing some more advanced stuff. I just don't know where to start.
What im trying to say is that im not a complete noob. It's just really fucking annoying when you want to start working on something but you dont know what or you come up with an idea that you abandon later because you can't turn it into a complete project.
Any help would be appreciated.12
Okay, so we've learned nothing new.
A degree is a useless waste of time and nobody cares about it.
Said by someone who's currently in school, and will learn the basics of the stuff I'm currently doing day to day in about roughly three years.2
But hell, I love my Python8
Here go on a course to learn the basics of this Plc (Siemens) right now this mega project that is the most complex thing our company has ever done now it's yours. WTF
Hi devs! I am about to make some app for Fedora, but I'm kinda newbie. I know basics, but i wanna learn new stuff. Okay, straigth to the point: What would you recommend me to make and in what language?6
I learnt to code in python when I was 8.
I learnt the very basics and moved on to other languages.
My first creation was a kind of text based nuclear missile silo operator simulator.
It was mostly just a shit ton of if statements, God I wish I knew about switches. You just kind of input commands like 'open doors','set co-ords ##:##' and 'launch missile ##' and a dozen other little things like that. Was a fun project.
One of my teammates signed up for a day-long session on Angular 2, since he's been doing a lot with Angular 1 and wants to transition to the new version.
The instructor spent the first half of the day going through the w3schools tutorial on Angular 1, because "understanding the basics of Angular 1 will help understand Angular 2".
Btw, this was a paid workshop session.
I sometimes thank the education system for teaching me really outdated stuff. Here's why...
With new programing languages with all the jazz and cool tricks, it's not impossible to develop concepts and get in the flow of visualizing problem solution. Like for eg, plython3 had inbuilt method to swap variables but I know how to swap variables without a third variable because I had to do it without python. Now that I have the ability to build algorithms, I can leverage functionalities provided by languages in better way.4
Any tips for wannabe programmer? I've learned java basics and feel quite comfortable with them. Unable to write any projects though. I think reading and trying to understand some different medium sized projects source code could help. Do you know where I could find such a thing?7
say you're thinking about starting a new project, you have the basics but not really expert in all the aspects required by the project and decided to open source it. how would you get the project more visibility which means more people involved ?4
K, how to get started with HTML, CSS and JS basics? I want to get started right away and would like to have something like a reference tutorial, with short helpful code. Nothing like a course or something. Hope you can help me.3
I'm starting on C# and some of the lesson plans out there dont make sense. So far Bob Tabor and Plural Sight has helped me half way and the bulgarian shark book too. What has helped you cross that threshold past the basics. I'm stuck on structs, namespaces, sort algorithms, sql and json.6
Going to start learning ruby on Rails from the basics. Do I jump into rails or start with ruby. I am a django developer.4
Feels like dagger2 is a stabbing tool for android devs.. the more you try to understand, the more it hurts you 😢 Trying to understand basics. Every tutorial is another story... HELL..!! 😠
In case you want to become a front-end dev learn your basics. Dont use position absolute if not necessary. Don't margin -300px, if that's the case to position something there is another error in code that could be fixed to solve this
I'm looking for resources and/or a good tutor for C to help me learn the basics and maybe go a little deeper. I have previous programming experience with Java and I'd just like to expand my knowledge base.
It's high time people start understanding the difference between 0 (zero) and NULL.
Zero: You visiting the toilet and notice the exhausted toilet paper roll.
NULL: You visiting the toilet and notice that there's no toilet paper roll.
Get the difference?1
Besides my study I work as an student assistant at the university. My next project is developing an platform for children to learn the basics of programming. Really excited about it! Let the next generation meet with our work!
I'll have you know it only took me 3 months to learn the basics of lambda/aws, get server side authentication working, and get a basic login/logout page on an app
Never expected such a learning curve!1
Ehh... too deep too fast?
What's a good book for learning Tensorflow... and maybe ML Basics through usages/examples?
Can I use TF, ML without the math/lin alg? cuz idon't have that and don't really wamt to learn unless you can convince me otherwise **through usages/examples**5
Am really confused between app development and web development. Where should I proceed guys?
Am CS student right now. Mostly learn C# (WPF, xamarin) in mean time.
But recently am getting love on Angular 4. For that I learn typescript (I know HTML and CSS basics btw) and willing to start learning it in upcoming vacations.
But thoughts coming in my mind is am doing good to get into web development? If yes what should I do with the knowledge of C# then? 😣😣. Or should I stick with app development and get dipper knowledge in it?
Really confusing stuff man. Am really need some good assistance on this topic!1
Anyone knows a good CRM/project manager for a 2-3 people company? I have like 30 trials accounts at all the big ones but they focus on bigger companies. We just want the basics and a nice API.4
I'm wondering if anyone worked in Microsoft as Data Labeler?
I'm supposed to have an interview in about a month, but since I stated that I know at least basics of C#, Java, and Python, they said I'd have different kind of interview.
I would appreciate any kind of advice, since I'm getting anxious cause I don't know what will be expected from me now cause u usually don't need any coding skills for that job
Edit: the new position is somewhat of an alpha tester I think5
Self learned. I was introduced to programming quite early courtesy my dad who pushed me to use Linux. At first I learned basics, enough to tinker with stuff. Then I met python. It changed my world. Now I know C, C++, JS, PHP, Obj-C fluent enough and am working on others. But python will always have a sweet spot in my heart. Also, I think python 3 is a good improvement over 2. Not perfect. But good enough and it still has a future.
Working on SQL and Java
Honest question:. Why do people worry so much about following OO principles? The basics I understand - things like accessing child classes through parent objects. Others, I don't really get.
I write automated tests, and call a method to configure certain documents using db inserts every time. Why shouldn't I be able to override that on a per spec basis, especially when the class that handles the insert isn't a child of the setup classes in the first place?6
I've been wanting to learn machine learning (ANN specifically) for a while now. I know the basics; neurons, synapses, backpropogation, gradient descent, etc. Anyone else interested in learning with me? Might be worth noting that I want a DEEP understanding of them, so I don't initially want to use libraries like TensorFlow. I want to build ANN's from scratch to ensure a thorough understanding.5
I have a class on my college on which we can choose what to do as a final project the only requisite being that we need to do something we haven't covered in any class at the degree.
I want to be a Gameplay programmer and saw that many offers ask for Lua, then I think this is an opportunity to do something in Lua and learn the basics but I don't know what to do, any ideas of a simple project I can do in Lua or a framework that uses Lua that can teach me the basics of it?
Tl;Dr: Want to do a small project in Lua, have no idea what to do tho. Ideas?4
I'm going to study physics but I'm also interested in computers. I'm looking for some good books about computer secirity, Assembly and how computers works (some computer science stuff like theories about automats or some HW stuff, for example basics about CPU).
Can you suggest me some books from I can learn, please?
So I'm in my computer programming class and we're using netbeans and my friend next to me (who wants to code but like he doesn't know any basics) is like why isn't my code working, after a while I figured out that his .Java file wasn't in the project directory he was working in -_-
So I read about how NAND mirroring worked as a proof of concept on brute forcing the pass code in Iphone 5c. After reading a few paragraphs, I didn't understand how the researcher came to know what to do with certain challenges along the way. What the hell did I do in my 5 years of studying engineering? I better go back to the basics.
Any suggestion on (pls, cheap) books that'd enable me to understand the unix/Linux environment in its most fundamental level?
I do use Linux for some 10 years already, but just now I moved to a distro that doesn't do everything to me. So my basic idea is to get the basics so I'd have the least problems when transitioning to other distros/*ix systems, so pls, the less its distro specific, the better or is.
I was so excited to learn React Native and I know basics of React too, so I thought it will be fine.
Spent one and half hour watching video and I was happy that I'm almost gonna finish this and last point was Navigator......
Got error its deprecated and have to take another way. I'm still searching how to do it and eventually now I'm not in mood of learning that.... Fml1
Any Clojurists on Devrant? I'm starting to learn the basics through Clojure for the Brave and True, and I'm wondering where to go after this. The little taste of the language has left me wanting to use it more, so I'd like to see how it's used by people who know what they're doing 😁1
Do you think having a basic knowledge and understanding of algorithms can help you in web development. A friend of mine thinks algorithms will not make you a better developer.5
Week 1 Day 2
Today was an eye opener. Tried to make a simple class to model a fraction, and forgot pretty much everything. I realized it's been close to one and a half years since I did any serious programming. All I did today was spend a few hours going over all of the basics, and double/triple checking my OOP skills. Tomorrow I plan on familiarizing myself with Android studios and Android device basics. The day after I'll start the actual curriculum. Still feeling really good about all of this and hopefully it'll stay that way.
So I've started working on a new web based project with one of my teachers. So he says to me,
"I wont do any of the coding, its all donkey work. Adjusting the text to be in the vertical and horizontal centre and etc etc. I will provide you with the architecture, for now you will be making CRUD operations."
I understand where his frustration comes from after years of experience coding the basics again and again but assigning me some work and labelling that very work as donkey work is not the best way to motivate me!
interesting conversation with the department head at my college (I'm a graduating senior): for incoming freshmen with no programming experience, do you think we should be teaching them to use a nice IDE, or start them with just a decent text editor and command line?
I was trying to convince the department head that we shouldn't show them an IDE until they've got the basics of command line down, and understand that a lot of what an IDE does is just abstraction of the command line.8
I got a report of a relatively simple WinForms app created by a senior (!!) developer who left just as it was released taking 3 minutes to load.
Step through it.. Narrow it down to one stored procedure.
Open said query, every join is a left join.
None needed to be a left join.
Change them all to inners, app now loads in 5 seconds.
Left Joins: For when people can't be assed to learn SQL basics.
My mentors are the instructors in my programming tutorials aka youtube
Brackey, Bucky, and so many others
All through my programming experience from basics this guys made me know what I know becoming a pro
I know you get better by doing but I just can’t think of stuff to build or remake.
I just feel kinda lost while having the motivation to get better.15
Setup my first Cordova project in Visual Studio today. Looks like it's going to take some time to get the basics together without the ability to just preview in a browser.2
I just know the basics of js and I had an interview with the ceo of a company. He said that if I am able to build a Twitter Client in React.js in 2 months, they will give me the opportunity, to work at the company in the summer. What do you guys think, is it possible for me to learn React and the Twitter API in 2 months. (I am a student, so keep in mind :D)4
Please help me...!!!

I started reading Thinking in Java a month back on the advice of a senior dev. But it's a damn big book and most of the things feel like basics I know. Has anyone read it completely and would you recommend I read it?3
Failing to self study because i always get stuck on tutorials like so:
Do a, now do b. You should now get C. You can then proceed with d etc.
BUT I DON'T GET C. WHY NOT?! I FOLLOWED ALL YOUR FUCKING STEPS YOU SHITTY GUIDE/BOOK/ASSHOLE.
So i had to get basics from school where i could ask questions to such stupid things. It got better, but i sometimes still run in to it, and still can't google foo my way out of it.
A while ago I got a book on python. I got into it a lot. Learned the basics from that, and everything else from the internet.
Great to learn the basics but anything more advanced is a waste of time. The team projects were always fun tho so atleast there is that
I had an introductory course on C during my engineering (using the Turbo C compiler). Got interested there and started learning on my own during the breaks between semesters. Mainly ended up doing basic things with VB 6, C, C++ and some Windows programming using a language called BCX Basic.
I still continue learning the basics of new languages in my spare time (planning to start with PHP next).
Got selected for scholarship from Google for Android Basics course provided by Udacity. Can anyone tell me how good is it?4
I understand the basics of c++ and java. I want something that will help me grow and learn more complex code and programs. To be honest, i don't know what to do or where to go, my next computer science class will be data structures and algorithms. Can anyone recommend a good textbook or read. Id like to pass on websites in the likes of codeacademy.5
Guys i need some suggestions on how to bring open source and Linux culture in our college. Students already have a subject which teaches basics of ubuntu and red hat and shell scripting.
I'm kind of interested in learning some hacking/virus basics. I wanted to try out some scripts but I'm kind da nervous. Can I run simple viruses on a VM without worrying about my laptop getting infected too? I would think so, but I wanna be sure.
Also, if you have any resources you can point me to, that would be great. Thanks!3
I learnt programming basics in C language in highschool because it was taught there and I was pretty good with grasping concepts. However, I had no intention to have career in programming or had clear idea where / how to apply programming knowledge. It was only after i made half way thru college on a stream i lost interest in...that my sense kicked in and I watched Bob Tabors C# lessons on MVA that I really felt like i know programming. Now i can't imagine doing anything other than coding / being a dev.
Will start learning Java in two weeks (first language!!) by taking some college courses. Any suggestions on (free) online courses I could already start with to grasp the basics?10
Finding that you can disable users from changing their Win desktop background picture in the Registry.
Endless hours of fun and amusement and a great way to teach employees that we have an ISO to abide by.3
I know the basics of php but I would like to learn much more.
What's the best website/way in your opinion to do this?4
Okay so I've been away from coding for about 2months now I think. Pretty sure I've forgotten almost everything about the languages I knew, except the basics. My plan is to learn new languages or go back and re learn the ones I knew...or both As for the reason why I haven't done any coding, I blame college. Haven't had much free time.1
I’m a mobile app developer, I want to learn something so that I can develop backends.... databases, rest apis, admin panels etc. I know basics of php, meanstack and django. What should I choose...4
Started with a gamemaking club on campus and we are planing using Unity However I don't know C# I have the documentation and Unity's tutorials but was wondering if any of you know an easier way to get the basics3
Anyone on here familiar with labveiw
My school's robotics team uses it and I'm now in charge of programming and my predecessor 'forgot' to teach me or anyone else the basics 😒😒
The team is for the FIRST robotics FRC competition
Some resources to learn a decent amount quickly would be appreciated
Thank you for your time
Please help I want to start learning before February when building begins (or is it January (I don't know anymore))
Guys, I have learned the basics of Python. Now, I wonder what to next??? Please, give me some advice.😕😕😕6
