Thanks to programming I am now £27,000 in debt and I get depressed whenever a politician starts talking "about the cyber."
There are a lot of benefits as well but I'm drawing a blank after reminding myself of how politicians see technology.4
Brains. Mostly the brains of everyone else because just about every issue I'm ever going to run into has already been solved by someone. But sometimes my brain can be helpful as well.
Honestly, communication is probably the most important skill you need for programming. Putting heads together produces the most amazing results.1
A piece of tough coursework. Everyone is struggling. The deadline is in less than a month. Our lecturer finally notices.
Send us all a link to the 5000-page ARMv8 architecture reference manual as a resource.
Sometimes I love the things you can get away with using the excuse "it's for computing science!" This story is more electronics and less programming but I'm sure a lot of people can relate.
I was in a group at uni making part of an audio system. We had to test it and tune the potentiometers by playing something. I said "I know what we can play!"
We ran nyan cat on loop on a speaker in the computer lab and noone could really stop us.
I've been using Visual Studio on Windows for all of my C++ needs so far. But recently I heard about this whole new Visual Studio Code fad and I decided to give it a shot on Linux. It seems to be fine but it's missing quite a few IDE features that I like.
Should I switch to Code completely? Are there any subtle advantages of either that may not be immediately obvious?5
