For fuck sake I get that people like python but not everyone is going to use it!
Just want a few articles or tutorials on interpreters and would you fucking look at that, it's all just in fucking python using external libraries...
Then I purchased a couple Linux and Raspberry pi magazines just to have a gander at some of the code examples and what do you think every single piece of code is? C? C++? Vala? Nope, fucking python!
Ok rant about python over, back to my hole12
Love how people are getting excited about the new Samsung devices and I'm here excited for the Nokia 8.1 and considering selling my pixel 2 XL and downgrading to it...
So was starting to get to used to and warm up to material design 2 or as I like to call it "Fischer price baby's first UI, bubble edition" and then Google fucking drop this shit for Gmail .-.9
Can we all just have a moment of silence for BASIC...
Got caught in a YouTube spiral watching nostalgia need and never realised how big and important BASIC was when it came to home PC's (I'm 21 so have no actual experience with said PC's)...
Also that leads me to the question as to why BASIC isn't still used?
It's actually a really legible language ¯\_(ツ)_/¯8
You know you're talking about something too much when your keyboard will autocorrect 'fucking' with 'fuchsia' .-.4
So building a game engine/framework/thing/thang and was working on a scripting language designed for the Dev terminals commands/applications...
Then I also have to design a language for the asset scripts, instances (probably going to do JSON) and it only took me about 4 months of planning to realise I could just use the same language for everything and just double down on the one.
Well aren't I a fucking dickhead .-.4
So saw that google released 'official' themes for chrome and thought fuck it, lets try it out...
Chrome will only use CSD if you use the default fucking GTK+ theme else it will revert to chromes custom icons...
Just how fucking lazy do you have to be for this to still be a thing?!3
Just want to know how many other game developers there are on here...
Got an idea I want to get other Devs opinions on but would love to here some tips and opinions from other game devs!20
Just curious on an opinion from other Devs who don't actually work as a programmer...
Would you want to?
I currently work in retail and have a dream job as a genetic engineer majoring in dormant diseases (eg cancers) and personally would never take a job where I will be programming, never merge a hobby and a profession...
Am I alone in this one?5
So my windows VM decided to start running slow and bogging down the host system...
Decided to drop it down to just 2 cores, 2GB of RAM and 1GB of VRAM and now it's running smoother than when it had 4 cores, 8GB RAM and 3GB of VRAM...
I love computers *Left eye twitches*8
Now I will defend USB-C untill my face turns blue and my mouth turns into a thunderbolt 3 port but fuck me some people complain about the stupidest shit when it comes to adapters...
Saw someone on twitter complaining because to get an ethernet port on his MBP... Only to notice he had purchased a USB-C to USB-A just so he can plug in a USB-A to ethernet...
Now maybe I'm thinking too logical but if you wanted an ethernet port, surely you would buy a USB-C to ethernet port and not seperate things to do the same job and then complain about it?
I can justify complaining about USB-C to auxiliary to some extent but for fuck sake I swear some people just get off on complaining about self inflicted issues -,-5
Hate asking these questions here buuuuuut...
Can anyone recommend a good flowchat/diagram visualiser for linux?
Preferably GTK based so it doesn't look out of place but anything will do, using google docs for this shit is like trying to disarm a bomb with a spoon...17
So just sitting here watching my windows VM's cpu usage to monitor was seems to be causing some stuttering and then out of fucking nowhere the default photo's app pops and and claims 96% of the CPU...
I understand computers are weird but how the hell does an app randomly start and jump to such a high CPU usage?8
Just want to share some admiration to all the tech youtubers out there who write and read out their scripts with the amount of information and technicalities...
Been working on a script for about a week now and holy shit it is not easy at all!5
A few months ago I got recommended a Flutter and Dart course on Udemy, thought yeah fuck it lets get it, fast forward to 5 minutes ago...
"Ok I'm bored, feel like coding and doing something different, lets do some of this course..."
*Opens udemy, clicks on course*
"Hm, must have changed the thumbnail..."
*Clicks first lecture and is greeted with "Hello friends!"*
Yep, got the wrong fucking course didn't I ;-;
Here hoping Udemy may offer a refund seeing as I hadn't started the course till now... Fuck1
Was working on my game engines scripting language for the terminal and this is how things went in roughly the space of 30 minutes
"Ok let's get a basic language structure defined..."
"Ok, so now I have basic structure and concepts of a potential auto translation framework, external library use and just a dash of complicated file structures and use"
And I still haven't written a single line of code except for ignoring whitespace when starting to lex the file to transpiling ;-;2
Anyone know of a program that can almost mimic the unity mode of VMware for a Linux host?
Just want to run 1 application on a windows VM and not have the main desktop open but haven't been able to find anything5
Gamemaker studio 2's 2019 roadmap just got released.. Still no Linux IDE (FFS) but it only took them how many years to realise that not every developer is a malicious cunt and give us the ability to disable to sandbox file system?!
I swear they add and change stuff that is so trivial instead of focusing on the engines major problems and absent features, eg. Can't use SVG graphics, the need to be exported in flash (SWF) because you know, makes sense?17
Unpopular personal opinion in 3... 2... 1
The new macbook pro keyboard is my favourite keyboard I've used and any lenovo style keyboard feels like typing on a wet sponge...
Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to crawl back into my hole...28
Me: oh awesome, wine 4.0 hit stable. Let's compile and see how fast we can break it!
*./configure && make*
Ok... Ok... It's been 40 minutes... Ok... Yep still going cool cool...
I think I need a new PC guys...10
Anyone else ever just have those days where you just think of just giving up on programming all together?
I just seem to be having these days every second day or so, I mean I've been programming since I was 11 and I'm just about to turn 21... I've essentially stuck with game development in the same engine in the same language and to this day have nothing to show for the past 10 years other than a million half assed prototypes that seem to just rehash idea's already done by other but a million times better...
Tried learning other languages and none have stuck, I can't grasp C++, don't have a fucking clue how to use Vala and can't even think of anything to make with said languages...
Tried making a pushbullet front end in Vala and can't even learn how to use the fucking API's so once again, that project has been put on the shelf with everything else.
It all just drags me down and makes me think if all the trouble is worth the pain and annoyance.
Maybe I'm feeling sorry for myself (110% chance this is the case) or maybe I'm just not cut out to be a programmer...8
*opens up any form of internet page*
Oh look... Another group of people using memojis as their profile picture complaining about slacks new logo and touting their own design...
*Opens up another page*
Oh look same fucking thing
*Closes browser and opens letter to reveal random slack logo*
Can everyone just shit the fuck up about the new logo... Please...3
So my friend that wanted to start learning how to code started with some basic JS and he just decided after a little research to learn some C++, started out with free tutorials but I recommended a C++ Udemy course that was recommended to me from one of you guys, he said he was enjoying it so I was pretty happy...
At about midnight last night he tells me he is thinking about switching to Linux after using Windows his entire life... I have done gods work my friends...
I'm thinking about trialling him with standard Ubuntu 18.04 and maybe Elementary OS 5.0, anyone else got some recommendations for a new Linux user's first distro?9
