Are Windows installs off torrent sites safe? I want to use Windows 10 from ThePirateBay to learn modern PowerShell. Do they keylog you etc. I am poor and I only have Windows 7 which can only do PowerShell 2 which is limited compared to what PowerShell can do in 10, I often try to put in commands that don't work from tutorials because I'm stuck on PowerShell 2. Thanks guys

You can download the ISOs directly from Microsoft. If you're okay with a watermark in the corner of your screen, you never need to activate it.

Seconding this. No need to crack win10 really. License keys are under 10 bucks if you're into gifting money to mr Bill. Also, I once found out that if you declare you have a disability, you get a free license, no questions asked; this was a few years ago, when I tried to repeat the stunt I couldn't find the right webpage so they must have done something about it idk

Architecture-wise, same exact thing as developing them with Java (all the same classes), but some things like null checking might be more coincise and less verbose when writing them in kotlin.
Also, iirc, they do some fancy stuff with syntax so that you can use getters/setters methods the same way you'd access fields

Non-Updating Window

I need to create this, but I'm not sure where I need to start, which is what I'm looking for. I'll be able to do it with the knowledge I have, I think, but I need to know what I'm trying to do (or Not Do, I guess.)

You know how when a window freezes in Windows, stops visually refreshing and just maintains whatever is placed over it? That's it. I just want a window that doesn't update, I think, and does that by design. I've noticed this occur in some SDL applications, like certain roguelikes, where the window will only update visually on a keypress, but I'm not sure if that's related in any way to that library.

This feels like it ought to be simple enough, so I'm hoping someone will be kind enough to point me in the right direction while I'm bumbling around trying to figure this out myself.

If you're interested in learning embedded programming, knowing C is invaluable. Probably worth learning a simple assembly language too (6502 or PDP-11 are examples of old CPUs that have simple enough assembly languages that you can understand without studying for months).

As for what kind of project? Something you find interesting and easy to explain. I saw someone make some LEDs for his fishtank that look like lightning or sunshine or overcast or whatever the weather is outside. Maybe you want to make a robot that can sweep your floors. Or home automation. But it should be something that takes your fancy and which you can learn something from

Iggy the post that were auto formatted incorrectly by 420chan.
Just goto rhe w3schools link or study the screen shot I took for the working code.

BTW I did it the hard way.

Hope this is helps you in class my friend.

I prefer JS over Python for many reasons not only because it is the web standard because there are so many ways to do the same thing. Also I haven't coded much in Py.

My 3 fav right now have to be JS/PHP/C#, in that order. After that I would say VB because of the .NET framework like C# and C++ for .NET aka Managed C++ is not bad. Java because of its syntax is much like C# is good and It is good for Android projects.

Just pick a language that is widely used and master it. or else you will know alot of diff ones but master none. Go with C# for desktop/Mobile and JS for the Web and master those. I would say spend 2-3 years using just those languages. - BrU

hi 420chan. i want to be able to assign sound files (musical notes played on an instrument which i will have recorded) in whatever order i want and at assigned intervals. i want to "compile" and output to the speakers or to a larger sound file. the only experience coding I have is client side (web design) :/ javascript always seemed too hard. any tips where to start? C? could i even do it with javascript do you think? windows and linux both run programs written in C, right?

i just feel like i'll have the MOST authorship power (aka creative control) if I can make the program that orders the music at its most basic level, instead of relying on commercial software that I had no hand in creating and thus may never quite fully understand. call me enthusiastic possibly, but i don't want to spend time trying to understand the DAWs.

feel free to ignore this post if you think I should be searching the search engines and studying on the programming languages on my own to find my answer. honestly, this post is as much a reminder to myself to find the information myself as it is a cry for help.

Check out chuck

It's suited for most "music and programming" tasks. You can open sound files no problem, there is pitch shift, time stretch and so on. Realtime & sound file output is available as well.
You can even use midi & osc in a pinch (midi kind of sucks cuz you have to use the raw data, but it's there)

If you want something more modern and don't want to learn a new language there is something that works in JS (haven't used it)

Hello, I made and actually did all this (including the 'grad level' research electives, except for the coding theory book)

It's easier than it looks, it took me 3 years to do that. I did it about 3-4 hrs a day at first but then everything kind of snowballed and I finished it with only 1hr a day after the first year. These days I'm finishing The Art of Computer Programming series, I'm done up to book 4A and doing 4B draft at the same time. I just do it 20-30mins a day.

I cannot shill TAOCP enough, it totally changed me from amateur to professional computer scientist by just doing hundreds and hundreds of exercises. 20mins a day, for one year, it's all you need for the first book. Anyway, pick and choose what you want from this list and enjoy

I make money from cloning shopify apps, and I work P/T on https://turtle.ai/ though much more infrequently these days. I started out shilling myself on elance (now "upwork") as a jr developer and literally taking jobs from 3rd world countries for less than I would spend on lunch. I also work 2 days a week at my local university doing "ML" (statistics) for a cancer research lab making peanuts but it's research, and fun to do, and I don't need the money. The book in that above link, "Parallel and Sequential Algorithms" was directly responsible for the lab hiring me. Anyway anons I'm here to tell you to try this have a good day.

I think I might be too retarded to be a programmer. When I am given an assignment for my course work at community college I always have a hard time figuring out what needs to be done. I don't think I am that much of a failure at simple logic, but I'm not a genius so I can't figure out just what it is that I need to do. I am alright with structured programs and sometimes feel as if I excel at that but when it comes to making a bug move position in Java I am lost at the start. I cannot even form an algorithm to save my fucking life. Is there any hope that I would ever grasp everything in programming? I can't even figure out how passing methods/functions in any given language actually works. This is enough to make me contemplate suicide since this means it's one more thing that I would never excel at or one more thing that I would only excel at with the bare minimum. Who else feels this way?

I feel like I have high functioning enthusiasm or mild Asperger syndrome and when I was younger used to love to learn to script and program stuff now as I get older in my late 20s I feel a lack of sense and wonder and overloaded with so many choices.

I do gravitate towards easier programming languages like Python and C#.

I feel that drive died for me because everything has been done except I do have ideas to make video games but realize I suck at 3D Modeling. and 3D Level design. I know UNITY and C# is a perfect match however when it comes to coding something it's a pain in ass because I have to have my ideas written down and to apply them I need to figure out how to make my own graphics. I suck at graphics design so double whammy. let's assume I can create some 2d graphics and 3d graphics. Let's assume I can design a level. than I have to implement code and figure away to make proper AI.

Knowing myself and how garbage I am at advance mathematics because of my mild learning disabilities due to my ADHD and possible mild aspergers I feel like a complete retard.

>advanced math
Nah, it's not that advanced to apply the math just looks complicated on first view. Start with a 2D game for a mobile device, then as you gain interest back in writing games you move into 3D
For example this course: http://www.cs.cornell.edu/courses/cs3152/2020sp/lectures/index.php uses Java but I don't see why you couldn't substitute Kotlin for writing Android games or whatever the pref iOS language is, or whatever language you want to use they all have similar libraries or way to interface with the same library used in that course.

Note the lecture 'Graphics: Sprites' with a link to 'affine transformations', the link there is to a guy who watched Wildberger's Linear Algebra lectures and wrote a java program to move a fish around a screen https://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/understanding-affine-transformations-with-matrix-mathematics--active-10884

We are doing the exact same lectures in the learnaifromscratch.github.io shitty workshop thing, you can skip everything there and just start with linear algebra, because the further the lectures go on Wildberger teaches polynomials, differential calculus (curves) etc. Cornell even has a few slides about projective geometry and perspectives, with additional articles that link to how to write perspectives in 2D to make your graphics look better... and this is also all in Wildberger's lectures too https://medium.com/retronator-magazine/game-developers-guide-to-graphical-projections-with-video-game-examples-part-1-introduction-aa3d051c137d

The Cornell player behavior slides show that it's just rule based AI, using a decision tree, they set this up with FSM diagrams which are similar to the DFA lecture in the AI workshop we did where no math is needed. When character comes across rule, follow this path. This explodes in complexity so they take the FSM diagram and model it as a decision tree using model-view-controller .. all explained in the software workshop in a single lecture. Libraries already exist for this with methods built-in, you aren't constructing them from scratch.

Finally in 15-462 CMU's 3D computer graphics course you'll see things like cubic B-Splines and linear transformations in animations such as this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVTw68iHef0 and note this is lecture 25 in Wildberger's linalg series, so you would start in the Wildberger world of simple complexity free algebraic math and then progress into the abstract world of kinetics in those graphics classes to write your own 3D characters but you will already know how it all works, so it's just a matter of figuring out the notation to use the existing libraries. Research and development in 3D optimization you may even be interested in, or more advanced character AI, to me this is how I build enthusiasm, understand it at the basic level, progress to find out there are hard unsolved specific problems in that space, wonder how I can solve the problem so then motivated to research this area instead of not having a direction and feeling overloaded with choices.

*java oops meant actionscript, which is extinct but the concepts are the same.

Another simple example, Brown's 'topics in 2D engines' course shows how to use JavaFX's affine to keep track of transforms for drawing as you move around screens, this is all covered in Wildberger lectures too and easy to do. http://cs.brown.edu/courses/csci1971/lectures.shtml and if you google around Cornell has an 'advanced game design' course which is entirely mobile games, like how to create yet another tree that handles all the events going on, the best places to put event handlers for touch and release player movement, how to avoid problems with the accelerator on most devices, even more affine geometry projections.
