Based on previous experience, I am planning to write a devbox script as and when I installed required softwares. I will mostly be working in Python and fedora already seems to have virtual envs and python3 built-in. Anyway can you guys suggest existing scripts for reference
Installing Linux distros on ryzen gigabyte motherboard was a pain in the ass. I gave up on Ubuntu and mintlinux and went onto install fedora with malfunctioning mouse(driver issue, mouse was fine). Basically had to hack around with only keyboard for few hours before I could install the latest Nvidia drivers and got my mouse to work. I don't who is at fault here but the Linux community needs to put enough pressure on vendors like gigabyte/amd to make sure they release updates for their hardwares across os. Installing an Os shouldn't be this hard
The more I learn, the more easily I get triggered at little things.
Read heapq python documentation to implement a min priority queue
Intuitively wrote heapq.push and heapq.pop in my code
Got to know that it's actually heapq.heappush and heapq.heappop

I'm really interested in knowing your opinion2
Shortlisted hackathon apps:
1. Transmit strings between two phones using sound.
Why the fuck? Why are we reinventing the wheel?
2. Offline payment services app. Sounds cool but is no way feasible in the real world.
The judge of the hackathon was some old PhD college professor who was yawning at the begining of the presentation who didn't understand what was heroku and didn't even bother to listen.
1. Stick to corporate hacakathons
2. Query regarding the judges of the hackathon17
Participating in an hackathon next week with open theme and needs to be a mobile app.(12 hours)
Help me with some ideas fellow survivors3
How do I prepare for a tech interview at top companies one year from now?
I'll be pursuing master's in CS from this august and want to prepare myself accordingly. I have a decent understanding of algorithms and data structure. Although I can solve problems at my work easily, I am still worried about my inability to solve medium - difficult hacker rank problems.
At one point I understood a lot of git internals. Now I don't remember shit apart from the small subset of commands that I use everyday.
How does one remember such intricacies.
Also same with regular expressions xD6
