Round two, guys.
Lets continue that 3-word story, but first comment with more or less words ends it!

On Saturday's I volunteer at this place where I teach/tutor kids how to program. I was sitting down with this kid and helping him when I found this pleasant surprise hidden in his code-
[go to my other rant for pt.2]6
I've been programming for quite a while. I know Java and C#, but I decided to pick up another language, C++, so enrolled in a class at my college. My professor is GOD AWFUL. 4 weeks in and WE DIDNT EVEN TOUCH THE #$@&% KEYBOARD. You'd think that we would at least learn inputs or outputs, right? Instead we've been busting ass learning how to format our homework. What a waste of time.
On that note, if there are any good C++ classes on Udemy, and if you've had a good experience I would love your advice since theres many choices to choose from. I'm gonna learn this one way or another, and it seems the latter looks more useful than that person I'm obligated to call "professor".7
Me: "You know, if I take maybe an hour I bet i can finish this before I sleep..."
Reality: NO. NO YOU CAN'T. YOU'LL STAY UP UNTIL 5, AND IT'LL WORK EXACTLY LIKE I DID YESTETDAY.3
@dfox After clicking on a rant, it would be really nice if swiping right would take us back to the list of rants, rather than hitting the back arrow. Makes 1 handed navigation much easier <38
That moment you get -7 votes on Stackoverflow and post the exact same thing on gamedev.stackexchange and get +57 votes in 4 days
guys my mom is a PM help
shes been telling me what to do on my personal projects for the last to days like:
Mom: "Make it so when I click it, it becomes brighter and displays all the info"
Me: "I mean I could yeah"
Mom: "No you have to do it, I don't like it otherwise"
Me: "I understand, but this is kinda my thing-"
Mom: " k yeah and get it done in 2 days"
Me: "...yes, master"
(On a real note, she actually is a PM... what was I expecting...)12
WE DID IT BOYS! @dfox @trogus I feel that putting our devRant stickers on our laptops is officially a thing- So I'm prepared to join the dark side 😄
Not gonna lie, I got kinda emotional reading this.
Was the first language I ever learnt (I'm 16, started very young). But I guess as any dev, we must adapt to changes👍Rest In Peace, Phrogram.2
Made a simulation/game in java using swing that runs on this algorithm:
-2D array was made (kinda like a chessboard).
-Random living cell was placed on the board.
-If a cell has X or less cells around it (living) it duplicates.
-If a cell has Y or more cells around it, it dies.
I was amazed at the types of shapes this created. There were so many variables I could play with, and probably spent hours just experiementing. I was really satisfied in the end. 😄4
Would be really nice if devrant had a built in plugin for our IDE's- kinda like a scroller menu on the side :P We could rant in the office without forgetting it later. I'd call it "real-time ranting".4
