When is it a good idea to use linked lists?
In my pet project, I want to have a list of items with an index. The index of an item should be updateable, and the index of the other items should adjust.
A linked list would make it very easy to adjust the order since you just need to update the "next" node of 2 items, but I think this would make getting the index of items more troublesome.
What is the preferred way to do something like this, am I just overthinking it, and would updating all the indices of the items not be such a big job?
The project uses React and mongo (express-mongoose) btw, if that's important.4
I see a lot of rants on this platform complaining about their boss/management.
About how they don't understand how complicated the development can be of seemingly simple tasks or how they would prefer small estimations over realistic ones.
Is that really the standard in this field of work?
Am I just that lucky to find basically the ideal boss on my first try?
My boss really understands how difficult some tasks can be even if they don't initially seem like it. He listens to my ideas as if they are at least just as important as his own. He can almost think like a real developer and is prepared to give us all tools we could want to evolve.
It is a very small firm and I'm basically the only real developer on this project, but I would follow that man to the ends of the earth.
Can some people please clear my conscience and confirm there are still good managers in this field who really care about their project and their employees/colleagues?7
If you could have a list of ALL bugs in your system, would you want it?
Like a document of hundreds of pages filled with everything that could possibly go wrong which would include both huge missed security problems and little mistakes that will never have any impact in this universe?
I would really like to have such a list. But I think a lot of people would sleep better at night not having to worry about hundreds of small issues.5
Who chooses the Weekly Rant?
Are we allowed to make suggestions?
I suggest because a lot of people are at home and we need some distractions that every just post pictures of their pets.6
- Create a Cron to delete users with course status 'enrolled/incomplete' for several months based on existing courseUpdateLogs
- Run Cron manually 1st time
- Find out courseUpdateLogs were very incorrect
- Find out a LOT of valid users got deleted and can't access their worksite
I've been a windows user for my entire life (or at least since I had a computer).
Lately I've been contemplating buying a macbook.
Can someone give me advice/ pro's/ con's...
What I use my personal laptop for:
- programming (VSCode mostly)
- watching TvShows / Movies
- Playing minecraft (mc + mods will be the most heavy games played)
- Surfing the web
Why I'm thinking of buying a mac:
- mostly the battery life TBH
- compatibility with my iPhone
- (possibly for later) iPhone emulator (maybe XCode), It might be annoying to download some programs like Android studio, but trying to get a Mac OS VM with XCode on my windows is nearly impossible.2
