An interviewer recently asked me "how many 'valid' combinations can you do with N parenthesis, either closing or opening?"
It sounds easy enough, yet I didn't manage to find the solution, apparently I was close enough using dynamic programming. Can you solve it ? :)14
My phone autocorrect "Netbeans" to "Jetbrains". Was frustrating on the moment, but in the end I feel okay with that8
I can't stand my MSI laptop keyboard. The enter key is 2x smaller to make place for a bigass * key, and the > is at the right of space key... Writing HTML makes me want to shoot myself.
What are your keyboard constructors lunacies ?3
First time working with an UI designer. I'm finding out that I'm not that bad with CSS, I'm just bad at design !2
My colleague sucks in all programming languages known to mankind, and he's one the best programmer I know.
Stop thinking "programming = programming language", languages are nothing ! Programming is about logic, architecture, paradigms, and that's about it.
Programming languages are the front-end of programming.2
I'm considering switching to a tiling windows manager. The main thing drawing me back is that in my job we work a lot on each others computers (helping, debugging, pair programming...).
Will using a tiling WM make my workspace hard to use for somebody else ? It would be disqualifying7
Hey guys ! I want to start some kind of blog so I can share my experiences and tinkering with stuff.
I can't seem to find a good CMS for that ? I've no problem with coding the blog myself (with Rails preferably), but I'd like to not start from scratch ! I'll need handle syntax coloration for code samples for example.
Any advices, ready-to-use stuff or not ? :)4
FUCKING FLYING FUCK CAN I HAVE A FUCKING SOLARIZED TERMINAL THEME PLEASE???
I literally spent the WHOLE FUCKING afternoon trying to get a decent solarized theme on my console...
Everything bold is NOT the good color! Bold blue or green becomes grey!!
The worst is that I understand why, I just can't seem to find a solution...4
I fucking killed my hard drive by installing the guest additions in a Windows VM! Everything freezed and crashed suddenly, how the hell is that possible? How can Windows fuck everything up, even in a VM??
(Probably wasn't Windows fault, that makes me even more angry).
This hard drive wasn't even two months, his predecessor died heroically in a tragic magnet incident :(3
I was bored so I learned HTML/CSS, I was like "eh, programming is easy!".
So I learned C next and I was like "eh, programming is kinda hard actually".
So I learned to program rather than learn a language, got back to C until I was comfortable with it.
Nothing is hard now :D2
I just learnt that HTML + CSS3 with user interaction is Turing-complete. How cool is that shit!?
The possibilities are endless. Server-side HTML/CSS. Skynet in HTML/CSS. An OS in HTML/CSS.
Trying to understand how I coded a hangman game (my first program ever, in C) is actually a puzzle far more complex and interesting than the game itself1
I feel like half the time I spend doing Python is fixing forgotten colons.
Seriously, it seems like a massive incoherence in the language to me, it drives me crazy!
I want to like you Python, but you make it difficult :(1
Just got the most introspective job interview ever.
Like, I think those guys now understand me better than my parents do.
Like, I learnt more about myself during this interview process than during my psychological evaluation.
Like, I changed my career plan twice during the interview process.
I don't know who I am anymore but I wanna work with those guys8
Despite what seem to be supported a lot on the internet, yes you can kill a hard drive with a magnet. As simple as dropping it on your running laptop! Try it at home!
Getting an interview tomorrow with a pair programming test. I've never done pair programming (they know it), any tip?4
Pet peeve #1: those guys who iterate over a whole array with 'for' and 'break' on a condition. Have you ever heard of fckng 'while'??
Git source code will be the death of me.3
