Anyway....

Stay in college if you want to learn, it works, it's better. Because you get exposed to shit you wouldn't otherwise, network with people that are actually achieving things.
The only downside to college is that it's expensive.

Also saying that you want to learn but that 'you're not in it for the job' is a bit ignorant imo.

Working environments are where people are achieving things with programming. If you can't even be bothered to solve the basic problems, how can you expect to do anything worthwhile.

Maybe if you're a dumdum. Most of programming changes (best practices, structures, API's). Sure you're at a disadvantage to be the best in the world but just taking a glance at people who have been "programming" since they were kids they're certainly not very good.

Find good renowned people in the industry you like and follow everything they do while thinking critically about it. If you have any questions ask them or other people.

You'll likely not be programming anything important, but learning basic programming skills is extremely useful.

This granular problem-specific programming is why everyone should know it, and it should be taught in schools, with computing being as prolific as it is.

This is also why you can find your niche as a professional programmer practically anyhwere.

A program that tells me when I'm allowed to masturbate

No. println can print all primitives and calls the toString method on objects passed in.

The guy is just a moron.

Of course, putting "" after numbers isn't the big problem. The big problem is having variables called num1-num10 and printing them all individually rather than having an array and a loop.

It's much faster and more intuitive to just write 5+"" then bother with Integer.toString etc. When you're in a competition, you should write in a manner that's quick, disregarding code style, error checking, readability, everything.

How the hell is that more intuitive? It is creating an empty string and the appending an integer to it, while toString converts an integer to a string. Same effect, but toString is far more intuitive. It is not any faster to use that method snd requires thinking about the problem strangely. I can only assume he did it in such a roundabout way because he doesn't know about the toString method.

Besides, he certainly isn't worried at all about efficient use of his time because
A. The integer to string conversion is unnecessary, and
B. He needlessly wrote out ten variable declarations and print statements rather than one array and for loop.

>>45464855
One thing I want it to do in the long term is to have the lines actually read out by a female voice, rather than have it be just text. That's why you can just edit the text files- so there can be two folders text and audio, and have them match. Be careful when compiling, the text file folder need to be in the same folder that it's being executed in.

It's functional, but you may have to ask it several times to get the right answer. Never fixed that.

Js, probably a better way to do it but here

function printSq(size){
var str = '';

for(var i=0;i<size;i++){
if(i===0 || i===size-1){
for(var j=0;j<size;j++){
str += '*';
}
str+= '\n';
}
else{
for(var j=0;j<size;j++){
if(j===size-1 || j===0){
str += '*';
}
else{
str += ' ';
}
}
str += '\n';
}
}
console.log(str);
return 0;
}

Boy, that is not true. I only wrote a cretin-tier LAMP bash.org clone when I was 17 years old, and started seriously writing code when I was 22. I'm 25 now, and I've been working for a year full-time as a software dev.

>protip: most people write shit-tier code and have no elegant solutions, because they don't have a passion for their job

i hate this type of shit. this isnt what being a programmer is like.

this is like those retards who come into classrooms and show clips of pixar movies and say "LOL DONT U WANNA BE A SOFTWARE ENGINEER???".

my sister's elementary school got hit by google a few months ago for the "madewithcode" thing. they had them design bracelets with a GUI and then acted like THAT was coding. i almost killed myself
