What stopped you, who on average should be making around 40-60k a year and has a good amount of experience and expertise in your field of programming or computer science, from applying to Google, Facebook, or some sort of well established and high-paying (or high-er paying) position at a tech giant company?12
Hi, in my JS project I have to update a variable value that is getting a text input's value in order to use it dynamically with different functions across my program. What would be the best approach to doing this?
Should I make a function that updates the variable for every character typed or should I simply get the value when the function is called?
Ok, so currently in my Java course on Udemy we are going more in-depth into scope and visibility, and I'm currently doing the challenge for it.
So I'm doing it and the challenge is to have every single name of a variable or method be called 'x' (just to better understand scope and vis, he mentions how this is not a good practice AT ALL) with the exceptions of the classes and scanner var (but there is an optional challenge to also make them named x).
Now that I progressed into it, I noticed something. This challenge is literally making me make my code so DRY and outside-the-box-thinking that, what if, this could be a practice?
Not the naming everything in your code the same var name, but doing that at the start and then renaming the variables after coding. Because right now, I feel as though I am using SO MUCH less code than if I had the liberty of naming my classes, methods, and variables different things, it's actually kinda cool.
I'll attach my code from the challenge to this after by it really amazed me how well my code looked compared to my previous challenges and even personal projects!1
Hi, so currently I am developing a program in Java that requires a few enums (I'm new to them and so far they are pretty awesome) and currently I want to create an enum that requires a single field, an instance of another enum. So in the first enum's constructor, I'm setting all the parameters into a new instance of the second enum, however, I'm getting "Enum1 has private access in Enum2!".
I'm off for the day but rq I just wanted to ask if anyone could help me with this. I'll be back in a few hours!1
Hi, so currently in my Java course, I'm learning about abstract classes. I noticed how a method in an abstract class can use an access modifier, however, interfaces don't use them.
In addition to this, I noticed that IntelliJ didn't give me an error stating that adding an access modifier was redundant or useless. So I wanted to know if there is a point in adding access modifiers to abstract methods.
Thanks so much for anyone who can help me out with this!1
So if you haven't read my last rant (https://devrant.com/rants/1980559/...), for the past 2 days I have been working on a Trigonometry Solver because I am in 9th grade and we are currently learning this in my Math class. I have a GitHub open to display my project so I highly suggest you go and check it out (the link is in my previous rant). If you read the GitHub's most recent upload, the description pretty much gives an update of what I did (sorta) and what I hope to do in the future for the program. If you are still reading this (props to you) then here is the GitHub repository link: https://github.com/DylanPerez1/...
I hope the code is understandable and if any professional or well-learned Java developers can, it would be awesome if you could critique my work so I know what I need to work on!
So honestly this is kinda like an update on what I am currently doing rather than anything else, but I think it's pretty cool. So I'm in 9th grade right now and we're learning Trigonometry. I grasped the concept on the first day and I began to make a program that would solve a Trig. problem. So far, if you don't know about Java, I have done the 'front-end' part of the program, just flashy text, descriptions, and a bit more. I'm still going to be working on it today, but I just wanted to share because I think I may be working on it for the next few days. I really like this challenge to my self, as it is helping me use the code I have learned to do something for "the real world." Anyways, here it is:
So in Udemy, I am learning about OOP in Java, and the next lecture is a big challenge in making a program with all the knowledge I have learned. I understand each concept, its just its a lot to memorize, however, I get the jist of it (You've ever had that feeling?). Anyways, I started writing notes on what each concept basically was and I began with composition. Now honestly I love composition and I just learned it a while ago. It is actually the most confusing thing I have learned in Java so far, as a few months ago when I was practicing Java I didn't understand it at ALL and I stopped coding for like half a year after (I'm back bebe don't worry). So I make my notes on composition and I realize, dang, I understand this a lot more than I thought. I thought this because what I did was make a file in Eclipse (not a class, a file) and I just started writing code without auto-complete like I was a mad lad. I made classes, fields, and I FEEL like I made my point about composition with the notes I also jotted down. Anyways, this was a part story and part what do you guys think of my notes on Composition. I think they are good and actually kinda detailed. Anyways thanks for reading this!
