Through Microsoft Virtual Academy, Watched Bob Tabor's awesome C# tutorial.
I used MBA because it had something like a point system which resets every month, made me want to learn more so I end up on top of the list.1
What is the reason a lot of you guys(not all of you) hate windows so much. I never had any single slow down or virus infection for ages, Windows Update always updates at the scheduled time etc.
I used Linux before, and I personally think that the experience is just about the same once you find alternatives to the windows software. But it also has flaws, dependency hell for instance.
Buuuut, I believe each OS has its ups and downs. So while one OS have trouble with something, the other might also have a problem. Some OS's are better than others and that no OS is perfect, and I wish I could see less criticism on OS's on devRant, cause it's getting kind of repetitive and stupid. Thank you.7
School online class system keeps track of every students' username and password. They are all accessible by typing passwords.txt after the address1
I get to unleash my creativity.
My classmates && teachers fear me because they think I will screw up their computer/smartphone if they make me unhappy, gives me a virtual protection field from my friends bullshit.
I look cool doing being a dev.
And finally, learning to be a dev improves my logical thinking skills.1
I started programming with C# for a Windows Phone 8 app for my dad. Never finished it, but it sparked my interest for programming.
And mostly because I want my friends to say something like:"Wow, you're super cool" or something like that.(FAILED)
Now I work with C++ and I'm proud of myself, so I basically inspired myself to take on programming.
Yesterday, I got an email from Apar technologies offering me a job for their client Nielson Malaysia.
Was very excited, but had to refuse due to me being underage(15).11
Got my stickers earlier than expected, need to find a way to use 'em. Thank you David and Tim.
Next goal: 200++'s to get the stressball.1
std::cout from C++.
Why? Because I use it all the time, can't live without it.
Sometimes the most important pieces of code is the simplest.
After a month off from developing. I got butterfingers, can't type string with typing an extra 'h' into it. Surprised I didn't type with my thumbs instead.
After a long break for studies, I'm finally gonna continue working on my game engine. Wish me good luck.😃😃7
Was making a text based console game last year. Had to know natural human responses. Got too tired of it and make it print "Uhh, I've never had a lot of education, please use easy words."
Bricked my android device the other day. Took a whole day to get it working again.
Why do phones have to make it all so complicated. It should be like PCs, being able to install anything as long as it matches the CPU architecture.4
Computer society in High school
So while I was in high school, I got excited over the computer society because I thought I could learn a lot of programming stuff from them. I joined and quickly realized that that was a big mistake. They were teaching stuff that you learn from the computer classes in grammar school, eg MS Office, email clients.
I started to learn programming myself through learning online, eventually being the best student in the society. The teacher in charge chose me to teach the class next year, but it cannot be too advance as people would get bored and confused.
Why does classes have to be like this, cannot be too hard. Has to be something that clearly everyone knows. This kind of bullshit has to stop.
Never speak to my family about coding.
Family tries not to talk to me. l
Ask them why.
They say I would ramble about C++ or my Python...1
Installs Ubuntu 16.04
Try to put my favorite software installed.
Reboot failed, drops to BusyBox shell.
Me thinking : I fucked up.
Friend walks by, couldn't read shit.
Friend: Look at his kid, he's trying to hack into someone's computer.
Me: (Agrees just for reputation) Yeah, damn teachers been giving me bad grades.
Friend: Could you help me too?
Me: (Don't have hacking experience, making shit up) NO, because your not my best friend. And school security is hard to crack.
Got away safely1
Me: I want to be a dev..
Mom: But you only sit in front of the computer to play games.
Me: That's not what I always do.
Mom: Then why are you sitting behind the computer all the time.
Me: To make software. Most of the time you clearly see me typing code.
Mom: No, I can't trust you, you play too much games. Study hard and get another job.
Me: *Middle finger behind a back.*5
Some friend bothers me while I'm coding.
Friend walks away because I asked him to look at what someone on the other side of the room is doing.
I open CMD on his pc.
typed: color 0a
alt + enter
me: blocked by administrator for disturbing the peace.9
