I've got two raspberry pi's that I bought for setting up two different VPNs. I'm using pivpn.
One works resiliently, whereas the other, after couple of days, just stops working (the connection times out while connecting)!
They're on different routers, but the 'faulty' one works and then suddenly stops. This makes me thinking that there's a problem with the router.
I didn't give enough details of course, I just want your opinion on what could be the cause (I know this is not SO xD)11
Being a quant developer based in the UK, do you think it's possible to find a job in US? Ideally I was thinking to approach a fintech.. What are the real obstacles in doing this?5
Oh really? I don't even have Java on my LinkedIn/CV, what the hell man? These freaking automated email are starting to piss me off!
Recruiters are the worst cancer in the modern job hunting6
I've been in the industry (developer for Finance, backend, quant stuff) for 5 years, and I was thinking to starting looking for a remote developer position in a couple of years.
Do you have any advice? Shall I start studying something? I'm proficient with C++, python and C#, but mainly for numerical algorithms, but I'm sure I can learn other stuff.6
So this is what I received from a very bad recruiter.
I don't even know why I covered the details, this deserves to be public xD
Also, consider that this message came with <no subject>..6
I have a 7yo laptop which, for the last 4 years, has been a Ubuntu single boot.
It was previously on Windows Vista, as it's shipped with it. Worth nothing to say, after a couple of years, terrible performances, so I never thought twice to reinstall Windows.
Now, that I'm in need to write C# along with CUDA in VS (2013 Express is the last version that supports CUDA 6.5, last version for my old GT330M), I installed Windows 10.
I have to admit, it's going pretty well. For being a VS machine, it's coming along very well :)
VBA as it's still considered a programming language, but it really should be banned from the face of the Earth2
Decided to write myself a CUDA wrapper using no third party library (e.g. managedCUDA).. I'm starting to regret it o.O4
Let's say that I might want to change job. I'm into finance, but I'd like to approach the game developing side (yeah I know, don't even start, it is how it is!)
Question is: I've got a bunch of projects to showcase my ability to code in different languages. Would setting a public git repo be helpful? Currently all of my repos a private, and not really thought for being read by others, but I can always polishing things up. Would that be an asset or doesn't it worth the while?
I mean, in my experience nobody ever asked me access to my git repo!3
How much I hate when I see
if (x = 1)
Seriously, why is that so appealing to you?
As well as
int i = 0;
for (; i < n; ++i)
Although I see how powerful Vim (with all its variants) is, I still don't get why people are so into it.
I mean, it's 2017, we have IDEs and some of them are very good, such as VS for C#, Eclipse for C++ and so on!

First time ever implementing an Android app from scratch (coming from C++ but also worked with C# and Python): WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SHIT???13
"You shouldn't use STL as it's slower"
<<Writes std::array instead of double* >>
Oh look, the execution time and the instruction read is the same!
How much I hate when someone says "You need to do this because in my experience this is more optimized". Dude, have you even profiled that?
Me every time I get an email from recruiters:
void GetQuestionsToAsk(string taboo)
return "* Do I have to work with " + taboo + "?\n" +
"* Does anyone in the team write any " + taboo + "?\n" +
"* Is the word " + taboo + " even in the job specs?\n";
Call this function with "VBA", "SQL" and "Excel" and I'm good to go (matter of perspective if you want to proceed if the answer is positive ;) ).4
Once I helped one of my friends writing a coding project for an interview for him.
We worked out a solution in C++. I showed him all the class hierarchies, how the flow worked and so on.
The day after he told me he re-wrote it in C# as he was more confident with it. Fair enough.
He changed most of the names using camel + underscore notation, sometimes starting with a capital letter, sometimes not!
But the best (or, rather, worst) was to convert the class hierarchy in a big class with all stuff in it, called "CMother". That got me. This class had a couple of static methods that took a lot (if not all) inputs that somehow coincided with the member variables of another class and did some work with them (like a constructor of that class would do).
Needless to say, he didn't got the job
