Then I look at the nature of the problem. What kind of curveballs might pop up? In basic English, what approaches can I take to solve it?
then I look at my knowledge set and see if I have the tools to tackle it. If not, I do some research to see if there's something I can add to my repertoire. The bad news is that "technology" as a field is growing impossibly fast and it's a big struggle to keep up-to-date
The good news is that once you reach a certain extent of knowledge, picking up new stuff becomes much, much easier
So, personally, if I'm making an open-ended CRUD webapp, I'll typically go with Python's Flask web framework and a relational database.
I'll step up to Postgres if I need to use the JSON capability, if it's going to be heavy-duty, and/or if I'm going to need to do anything geospatial. If it's simple I'll stick with MySQL.
If it's a webapp that's going to be simple and novel I'll probably explore using a NodeJS-based solution with document storage
If it's a Windows desktop app, I'll probably consider C# first, though I'm starting to like the idea of using Electron (a nodeJS framework for building cross-platform desktop apps)
C# is a beautiful language, but the best characterization I've heard of it is "a laser rifle strapped to a donkey"
it's not very useful outside of a windows context
If it's a basic-bitch linux command-line program, I'll probably go with Python
But I've written some stuff in NodeJS, especially if launching other processes is involved.
Where does C++ fit into all this?
I don't personally use it.
@Deleted User Do you understand the concept of low- and high-level languages?
Maybe? What is Haskell? High or low? Is Assembly a language or...?
Assembly is a language
it's as low-level as you can get
So basically everything boils down to processor instructions
The closer you are to writing processor instructions, the more "low-level" you are
Basic or Qbasic?
so a language like Python is very high-level. You're far away from dealing in processor instructions. You don't have to manage memory
basic is lower-level than something like C# or Python
but in its time it was pretty high-level
that feels right re Basic...
much lower level than most languages
you have to manage memory in C
Why do you think Linus Torvalds chooses C with all it's faults vs C++ or some other language?
The tradeoff is that C is very fast and can run in a great number of environments
Nothing wrong with C, really
Have you ever used rundeck or something like docker?
I've messed around with Docker, but haven't yet found the opportunity to use it in practice
it's a very cool concept. do you have any basic questions about it?
@Deleted User: Thanks for posting this. Using CoinBase, I might have contributed to the legal fund of certain Alt-Right defendant(s) -none of whom are convicted of anything! Mysteriously, I got a message from Uber that I was not supposed to use thier services for anti-Dieversity efforts. And then I got a message from Coinbase that I was being suspended, with zero reason given. For a process that is supposed to be untraceable and confidential, and LEGAL, I was astounded how our civil rights are erroded by the coorporate oligarchs that effectively rule ZOG.
No tbh my main curiosity is what people outside my normal sphere are using and how. I find it useful to see these utilities from a different perspective and how I can go about things differently.
I forget exactly, but essentially YES.
@Placidseven - MO That's one of the best ways to learn once you're actively developing. How about you? What do you use and how do you approach problem-solving?
I told them the only persons who are getting discriminated agains are Christian Bakers. It went to a dead-link email
@CharlesLaurence -CA out of curiosity, why did you choose to use coinbase instead of managing your own wallet?
It was my first time buying bitcoin, and everywhere I looked it said I needed a wallet.
I have several books on Bitcoin and blockchain. Would you be interested in them?
One is a "getting started" book
I am developing tools for the web app. I am currently teaching myself node.js in favor of it's multitasking ability and mongodb for its ability to create data structure on the fly. Which will work nicely once I start working on the api.
Would you like a NodeJS book that was immensely useful for me when I was learning?
Yeah what's it called?
NodeJS the right way
thanks I'll check it out
I will mail it to you. PM incoming
I thought you meant give me the name of the book... not a physical copy
@AshBrighton-AL, No thanks on the books. I'm gonna just send cash in the mail Never a problem with that, and you never get shoa'd .
just FYI though, you don't need a third-party to handle your wallet. You can do it entirely on your own and that will prevent you from getting blacklisted for the most part
It was an enlightening experience to get shoa'd for such a trivial exercise of rights. And I have only ever used Uber like once this year. How they though I was in Charlotteville or whatever is beyond me. The point is, Google holds all the data, they hate thought criminals, and we need to be mindful that they hate us.
absolutely. your story is probably the most egregious example of cross-platform clampdown that I'm aware of
I need to look into managing my own wallet. I was looking to start investing some of what I've been putting in my IRA into crypto.
Is there a wallet for the alt-right? Or that is alt-right recommended?
Technically a "wallet" is its own entity. It's integral to the bitcoin concept. There doesn't have to be a third party involved.
I'm going to PM you a book that explains it nicely.
I guess this would be under techie stuff, anybody here a ham radio operator. I'd like to get in to it, but i am electronically retarded.
I'm taking tutorial/explanation requests. Hit me.
Openvpn for a secure connection when connected to public wifi and managing/accessing local network remotely.
Not sure if that's to basic.... trying to think of things that will be useful to a wider audience @Deleted User
@CharlesLaurence -CA#4176 I just use Coinbase to buy and sell, after you buy just move it to a private wallet and go from there. Exodus.io makes a good wallet. You don't have to sync the blockchain, and you have your private keys. If you don't have private keys you don't really have your coins.
@Deleted User that'd be a good tutorial. Setting up a private wallet.
So keeping your private keys in a USB is best? How to secure those
Encrypt it for sure
@dog0fwar you should always write down your private key and keep it in a safe place. Probably millions of $ worth of BTC are gone forever because wallet holders didn't physically record their keys.
Yeah man. Between boneheaded mistakes and people dying without proper planning/communication, it's almost certainly on the order of millions given the current value of BTC.
Any other good free places online to learn js, besides code academy?
Hope this doesn't sound condescending, but have you tried your browser console?
How would you classify your current level of knowledge? That will help me steer you.
I gotta go pretty soon, but I'd recommend this as a good starting point if you're new to the language:
I can also provide a bunch of books. PM me if you want 'em
I did some html back in the day and built a few noob tier websites. My job wants me to learn js to help with building out a ticketing system.
Do you suggest that I learn css before trying js, as the link directs?
You can safely learn them in parallel
CSS is for styling. The main overlap between CSS and JS is the concept of selectors, so there will be some mutual reinforcement there.
Also, there are some great free ticketing systems out there. If you're curious let me know and i'll be glad to give more information. you might score some points by suggesting something turnkey that will save lots of time.
We already have a system, just building it out further.
Ah OK, didn't know if "building out" meant you had something already functional in-place. AMA as you're working and learning.
Any advice for choosing a niche for affiliate marketing ? I'm trying to create some residual income so I can free up my time.
Can anyone here do Wordpress?
@Deleted User Dunno if you saw my message in VFP, but you can PM me. I can do what you're asking.
Can someone PM what's the current status of torrenting? I used to be a member on a bunch of private trackers but stopped watching TV, had no interesting in it and the sites died eventually. Now I'm looking for a few things and don't know where to go.
@Deleted User Hey thanks for the info on VPN in lessons. Do recommend using if your just cruising TRS, Altright, etc. I'm obviously not doing anything illegal and I this point probably liked my IP to every right wing site out there. Just wondering how concerned one should be. I'm only a semi literate gen Xer.
And I'm only speaking for my personal devices mobile and home. Would never visit DS at work
