I really need to get my frustrations out and this seems like the perfect place.
I'm a uni dropout and landed my first programming job. I at least have some knowledge of OOP and design patterns. The more I learn about coding, the shittier I think I am at coding. However my Co-worker who graduated "top of his class" believes he is a programming God and doesnt want any advice from anyone. I just refactored his code to change a 60 line function into 8 lines, it's as if he's hard coding everything. I'm trying to help him, but he's stubborn as hell, I wish I had a co-worker who's more experienced/better than I am so I can learn something. Here's some signs you are a shitty programmer
>It's not your code, it's the compiler.
>You re-use code by copy and pasting it
>You don't comment (I'm also pretty guilty of this one)
>You don't close any readers/writers
>You store values inside a Gui's label instead of a variable.
>You think you are a good programmer.
Feel free to add some more.
How come we still have these terms?
I feel like they haven't been relevant for almost 10 years.
what should i do!
>his tech is black
Got this free from the Amazon price mistake yesterday. Any ideas on what to do with this little Obama spying device?
Will Apple sue my ass for using a Hackintosh? I just want to publish an app to the store.
this was actually a major concern for me a few years back when I had to publish a Cordova app. ended up not taking any risks and buying a crappy mac mini, which is still used only to compile and publish updates to that one cordova app...
I think someone has a cell phone jammer and is fucking with me, it's a rare day that I can make a call at home without having it eventually make a sound like you would hear from a fax machine and cut out. There's no problem when i'm out and about, it only happens at the house. It's very aggravating and having it happen when I'm taking a important call really sucks. Is there any way to protect against this?
Any good style scripts for browsing and posting? I've been using OneeChan but it's dead.
What does /g/ use to rice 4chan?
umm oneechan isn't dead
People here don't seem to like solus (insert "go away [some name] meme) but 3 was released a few days ago.
I'm using Solus as my daily driver for 3 months now and i can say that it received many improvements with the new update
It uses the newest kernel (4.12.7) now and Budgie changed the most
But it's not the Qt update for Budgie which is planned for the future. It still runs on gtk and looks better than ever before
I highly recommend to try it out in a vm or on a liveUSB
I don't know about the improvements of the Gnome and Mate edition
>insert "go away [some name]" meme
Those kind of posters actually never tried out Solus and just want to keep alive their dead meme
Does anyone here/has anyone used Salix? Thoughts? I'm presently on Debian stable. I really like how Salix is a great, easy introduction to Slackware and with no systemd. Am considering moving over but still like Debian a lot.
Can't speak to Salix, never used it. But it's based on Slackware, and I've used Slackware for years. It's the ultimate keep-it-simple, no-bullshit distro. Sticks to the Unix philosophy. Its stable, reliable and well-supported. It is not flashy, does not follow trends. It expects you to know or learn the basics about Linux or Unix. SlackBuilds.org is a key resource in the Slackware world.
Programming jobs are technology.
What do I put on an application that requires professional references?
It's an entry-level position and I'm fresh out of school with only an internship for prior work experience.
VEGA is amazingly efficient.
Hey /g/uys I'm looking to purchase a new laptop for college this Monday.
I'm looking for a computer with the best overall performance that could also maintain high end games, this being said I can spend almost 2k
If anyone has some insight or suggestions they would be most appreciated
In the meantime here's an irl dinosaur
openSUSE or Fedora
I'd like a low power Bluetooth device to which my phone can pair for smart (un)locking. Know a really cheap one?
