So I'm trying to get used to using vim and I've spent a couple of days setting up my vimrc and practising commands and what not.
Come today I'm doing my first proper coding session and my codes sending back weird errors and I can't work out why
Then when I read very carefully I find :w somewhere it's not supposed to be... Of course I'd forgetten to enter normal mode a ton of times and now my code is littered with :wq and :w so I spent a few minutes combing my code to find them all and it all works now.
Am I an elite hacker now?6
My Dev goals for 2018:
- build a raycaster in OpenGL and Vulken
- finish my game
- actually write a Dev blog2
Just another privacy rant.
I'm sick of people using the excuse "I don't care if Google keeps all my data it's just for adds"
That's true now but if you look at the current trends governments are making to forcing ISP's to store metadata, then it will be the actual data. Eventually they push that to other companises as well.
Now look at Australia for example the police don't need to notify you, let alone get a warrant, to access your metadata. There's also a law in NSW were you can be charged for accociating with a peraon commuting a crime.... Now your in jail for downloading movies years ago that you forgot about but your ISP didn't. I now that's a rather extreme punishment but, Imagine if the government needed some cash so they fine every person that ever downloaded a movie and everyone accociated with person.
Just a crazy theory with poor examplees but just because your data isn't hurting now doesn't mean it won't.
I'm gonna sit in a corner with my tin foil hat now.5
I need some Dev wisdom for you wonderful devRanters!
I have the opportunity to intern at a large multinational company overseas. I can get flown there and have a place to stay so that's not the issue. These are:
#1 it's cutting edge block-chain tech (not that I'll get to do anything super important) that I have no idea how it works. written in a language I don't know.
#2 they're trying to make a certain application of block chain technology proprietary and that goes completely against everything I stand for.
3# I'm only a 2nd year student and don't think I can handle uni while trying to catch up on a new development prosses, maintain decent grades and work part time at a job a might lose, if I go.
So, do I go?7
For me it was learning qbasic in highschool, my teacher was so passionate about programming, it stands out as the moment I knew I wanted to be a programmer. Thanks Mr Hill.
I have spent days trying to solve a windows 10 installation problem. I'm so pissed off at my own stupidity.
All I had to do was unplug my main hardrive with Ubuntu installed on it because of course windows doesn't play nice with other operating systems is being installed.
I only need you for games windows 10! Why be so fucking difficult!17
I have been testing out Manjaro and I have to say I'm impressed! Im currently running it on a 2009 hp pavillion(1.8Ghz CPU 2GB ram) and it is super responsive and even ran intellij! Gradle took a while but that's to be expected!
Should I switch my main os from Ubuntu to Manjaro? I need reasons for and against!13
Pokemon exception handling is now my favourite antipattern. I can't believe I've never heard of it until today. I laughed way to hard in that lecture.5
So is this bundle worth it?
I'm looking into getting into game dev, are the books worth the read? or does anyone have other recommendations?4
Making an entirely instrumental playlist has increased my productivity and consentration more than I ever thought possible.
Thanks wolfgang for making some sweet tunes!2
