Ever programmed your VCR? Ever set the clock on your microwave? Ever edit text?
Then you can program too! Unleash your dreams, subway scarfer.
>tfw changed my major from IT (networking) to automotive technology
cool, does that mean my years of html + css experience makes me a programmer?
Good. You can study automotive communication protocols, driveability diagnosis, and learn about reflashing/reprogramming engine management and other computers. Cars are full of computer goodness but most mechanics don't understand them. More money for you (and much physically easier work!) if you into that.
I have my degree in CS but ended up being a subaru master tech. Between my job at the stealership and my own personal garage i make considerably more money and don't mind the work.
Cars are becoming more computerized. That's one of the reasons why I switched. Down to things like updating clients' on-board computers or reprogramming their electronic keys.
Fun stuff. People who think automotive work is purely wrench turning by baboons who know nothing of modern technology have another thing coming.
I also plan on branching into certification for hybrids and electric cars as well, on top of servicing normal cars.
If you're at a good stealership you can make boatloads of money.
I just personally like the work a lot more than sitting at a desk all day. I had to do some serious job shadowing to figure it all out and found that work as a technician is much less bullshit than work as an "IT guy"
I was too dumb for CS but I don't post frogs!
I can empathize with a lot of the feelings they portray though.
they're barely passing them with c's. doesn't really seem like its making them well rounded when they barely pass them by scraping by.
they're obviously not taking them seriously.
but then again i remember my bio teacher in high school talking about how she barely passed english with a c and she admitted she only did the bare minimum to pass it. all she wanted to focus on where her science classes since thats what she enjoyed.
It's an /r9k/ meme that got the usual Reddit treatment for 4chan memes and now people are pissed off that happened.
The reason why people are more pissed off about it than when this usually happens is that /r9k/ considers itself a place for people who society bullied and eventually rejected before the final insult of taking a big part of their own culture from them. You should have seen the rage on /r9k/ when "normies" (as they call normal well adjusted people) started to believe that pepe was originally from Reddit.
nah the math was fine, I just got this weird anxiety and depression
then I left for a year and tried again and got the same way a second time so I gave up.
I'll never be able to go back without like living at home or having a job still to keep me rooted. I always just got stuck on 4chan and then would be too scared to go to class once I missed a day or whatever and I'd never turn in less than perfect work so I got Fs in everything.
Still don't know why it happened
Why change it? It's cancerous as fuck.
You are a fucking manchild if you actually use it that way.
Also, chances are, if you use "normie" instead of "normalfag," you probably don't know what it actually means.
"Normies" like memes from 4chan for surface level reasons. This is no secret.
It's just bad luck /r9k/ happens to basically be a meme factory, as it's obviously a bad feel to be depressed and then see chad posting pepe on facebook.
They take a random ass response just for the keks.
An they make it so that the username for everyone in the comment section is "Anonymous". Pretty much it's "Reddit copies post from 4chan and tries to be 4chan". It reminds me of why I hate reddit.
There's one guy who spends most of his day posting NEET threads on /r9k/ and he's pretty much obsessed with subway food.
Kind of pathetic when it comes down to it... Both spending most of the day creating and replying to the same thread and the being obsessed with unhealthy fast food.
>Too dumb for theoretical physics
>Go into programming job with self-taught C++ and no other real experience
>Now a big fish in a small pond at small company
Everything went better than expected
Well that's murrica for you... Same country where you have people who believe that if they eat several mini-pizza's instead of one full size one they'll put on less weight even thou the mini pizzas weigh more than the full size one.
>pick up some intro programming books and websites, make some fun little baby projects
>hey I should do this as a job, get interested into CS
>realize that I'll essentially be spending all my time with maths, but still end up on the lower side of the maths related degree spectrum, and be some code monkey shoved in a cubicle working 9-5 questioning my life choices
>keep programming as only a hobby
What a coincidence, I was just reading about Richard Dawkins here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahmed_Mohamed_clock_incident#Hoax_allegations_and_conspiracy_theories
>implying english, cars, the wheel, nations, and celebrities are not memes
unless you are doing CS research you won't see that much maths in programming. You can be completely retarded for maths and still program.
Uh oh, that's a pretty common diagnosis in college students these days.
Just go back and get your shitty GPA and graduate. Just explain to your professors/future employers your grandpa died or something
Study really hard and become an idiot savant. It's kind of more cool than being just someone whose overly smart because you can be a complete idiot without having to be embarrassed.
>Anon is so dumb he doesn't even know how to spell
>5 minutes later
>holy cow anon how are you so good at this thing? I'm so impressed. You're so cool.
Honestly though who goes to a school with a bomb like object like that (muh invention). It's like getting triggered over bringing a fake gun to school and running around "acting" and crying about being prosecuted over trying to express yourself
A lot of early programmers and CS people think that mathematical programming problems / numerical stuff are important programming experience.
Pretty much all software engineers I know disagree, regardless of whether they're capable of solving/enjoying such problems.
A lot of companies recruit based on your ability with such problems, e.g. Google.
I think you're confused there... CS is an applied maths degree and not about programming. One of the most respected Computer Scientists of the 20th century put it pretty well when he said that Computer Science is just as much about computers as Astronomy is about telescopes.
In short: For CS computers are simply a tool to achieve what they want to achieve and discover things the same way telescopes are for astronomers.
How can I rape a horse that isn't real [email protected]?
I don't know, you're the one who is into that sort of thing.
>Booted up old machine
>Is port 80 open?
Everyone can suck my little whiteboy peepee. Fuck that peepe girl!
>Want to do something with computers because i'm not really interested in anything else.
>Decide i'll try to learn programming
>I'm lazy as shit and can't bring myself to learn on my own.
>Decide to go to college, maybe i'll stop being lazy and learn since i have actual classes and assignments,
>still lazy, do well 1st semester, quickly drop off and stop attending classes, flunk out 2nd semester.
>Still paying off student loans, Still don't know what i want to do in life, have shitty job.
I don't know what to do guys i'd probably an hero if my family was gone.
>tfw can learn programming but find it completely uninteresting and can't really think of anything I'd want to do with it for myself
How can you be too dumb to get into programming? All the hard stuff is already taken of. To be productive, all that is needed is to glue libraries together with basic logic. The hardest parts are reading shitty API documentation and setting up your environment.
Pepe was an OG 4chan meme that got appropriated by all of the normalfrogs on tumblr and Facebook so it's become a bit of a black sheep on 4chan.
Yo, ever hear of rounding son?
You're only right if we round to one decimal place
11/12 = .916666666
/r9k/ was originally /b/ with OC when /b/ first turned to shit back in 08. it over the years got infested with frogposters, feelsfags, and now redditors who have made /r9k/ cancer.
Rate my FizzBuzz written in Labview /g/.
C# is your answer anon
What is the logic behind that pic? it just seems like retarded, psuedo-inspirational shit.
Honestly Alice 2 was so much better. It was more hackable.
When I used this in high school though it had me wondering what kind of a university had any business making their software closed source.
>tfw smart but lazy
All that potential... I could've been the next N. Tesla or Bill Gates
He means he doesn't have any motivation or drive or confidence to succeed.
>would be too scared to go to class once I missed a day or whatever and I'd never turn in less than perfect work so I got Fs in everything.
Fuck. This struck a chord for me.
>beginning of the semester and I'm so excited and motivated to actually do well and attend all of my classes, turn in all of my work on time, etc.
>between work and shit always get distracted and lazy
>end up not finishing assignments
>skip class because don't want to go if I'm not prepared to turn in what's due
>skip class more because I'm so behind
>eventually drop most of the classes I registered for, maybe passing like one class because how the fuck do you fail when you're only taking a single class
>Tfw autistic enough to become good at programming
>Too autistic to become a developer
>Would end up as a codemonkey instead
>Got into systemadministration instead
Programming is fun, but I'd end up having my soul sucked dry as a programmer.
IE confirmed to be whore
(sitting in a cafe')
IE: "anon, do you wanna open me up and USE ME?" (moves knees wide apart in seat)
anon: "ah...sure..." (eyeing chromium and firefox in corner, who are eyeballing back) but first you need to do something for me.
IE: "ANYTHING FOR YOU" (crotch becomes wet)

Just because you can't program HTML doesn't mean it's not programming, it just means your skills are out of date.
