I want to remind myself of something in X days, so

What do you recommend for easily working with some sort of email API where I can run a program, and idk, something like this (please critique)

check_interval = 5 minutes // or longer depending on sys resources
while(True):
if current_date == reminder_date
send email to self && delete reminder
else
Sleep(check_interval)

I basically want to create an Operating System that has all the benefits of Windows, and all the polish and "security" Macintosh OS X. I figured that I would start with the UNIX/LINUX kernel and build from there.

How hard would that be to accomplish. I mean there are a lot of Linux distributions out there. If I had ten people to work with me how long would it take to have a alpha version of my Operating System ready that is compatible with most if not all commonly used hardware.

I know that Android OS, OS X,and iOS are all built on UNIX. In addition to all Linux distributions.

Yea if you had attended some classes in college you would learn that you can't just throw around the "support" word and think it means something. "Support VR", "support hardware component X", "Support software Y" is stuff that concerns a OS only partly.

For instance, let's take the easiest to understand example: don't you think that IF it was possible, ALL Linux distributions and even MAC OS and Android devices would support running EXE files natively? That is not the case because Windows and every other OS is different in its architecture (before you ask, there is a project on Linux to make Windows code run natively -not with a compatibility layer like Wine-, but it's mostly abandoned because it was very difficult to develop), how it handles memory, syscalls, I/O and everything; also notice how you can't run most Linux programs on android because they differ in how the system is implemented.

But that is not the only thing that matters. Say you build YET ANOTHER operating system (it hasn't been done before, the internet is full of OS's that have been started and abandoned), maybe based on Unix (provided you know what that means), or maybe to accomplish all the great things you want to, you write a WHOLE another OS. It is never going to grow as fast as Windows did in its own time. That is because in the past there were not many operating system and windows basically the only one competing. PLUS they did a lot of shady shit for marketing for which they also got sued.

Basically you talk like a fag and your shit is all retarded; get out of here and stop wanting to waste people's time to "build" ideas that even you don't know specifically. Programming is not an aproximation. It is not a book, or a movie, or a play, where you can give the "general ideas" and then go on from there. Doing that can be beautiful in art, but software development? Computers do exactly what you tell them to do, and to do that, you need to KNOW EXACTLY what you want them to do.

My advice is get your nose into 3-4 books about OS development and computer architecture just to start, because that is the VERY LEAST you can …

> I would start open source with my distro and try to build our own unique programs with more powerful features. If the user base for my distro grows enough then companies like Adobe and Microsoft may begin to add support. Or we could program a runtime environment like wineskin that allows more seemless useage of Windows and even Apple programs.
So basically you want to be a shittier version of Canonical? I don't think you understand at all. Thousands of people are slowly building everything you already described for free except this:
>and try to build our own unique programs with more powerful features
Because anyone who does this will get boycotted by the open source community for being capitalist scum. I know you're market is the general consumer but quite often the moment they touch open source shit they stick with it.

If your goal is just to challenge yourself, and you want to explore algorithms, I really recommend codingame.com . There is a large set of challenges that range from straightforward to extremely difficult, and there are also open-ended challenges like designing AIs to beat other AIs in races.

If you want an "intro to programming book that is also a good introduction to Java" you could try "Java: An Introduction to Problem Solving and Programming," which was not bad except for the dozens of weird typos my copy had. If you want a "I am already decent at programming and I want something that talks to me at my level" book, I'd suggest "Core Java."

I'm interested in doing a small data visualization project in python, processing, R or whatever for a local hackathon that's coming up in 2 months.

I've taken a bunch of 'introductory' courses in programming (nothing past data structures) in c++, python syntax and fucked around with an arduino a bunch in the past, but other than that i do not have a CS background though i'm not terrible at math. i want to enter this hackathon to gain more exposure to development, hopefully contribute to something cool, and have fun

what can I do in 2 months to prepare, so I don't show up and just sit there and not have anything meaningful to contribute? what should i practice?

  • Processing is better to get stuff on the screen fast, batteries included.
  • Python has the best easy to learn libraries: numpy, scipy, pandas, etc..
use Anaconda if you don't know what to install, there is also pygame if you want to get to the level you get with processing but that is quirky.
  • You could also use javascript and three.js

  • If you want to do something innovative write your own OpenGL fragment shaders for everything related to displaying stuff.

>Make sure you can do the basics like ingesting and munging data.
ie learn numpy, python list-comprehensions (and dict- & generator-)

What you can also do if you decide to use python do the data mangling in python and use something like flask to create a cheap webservice for the visualization part that you can do in javascript & three.js

However if you aren't as familiar with python, let alone javascript just do everything in C++. The point of hackatrons is using the language you already familiar with not learn a new one imho.

I was dealing with a SQL database earlier today and I was frustrated because I couldn't make a column hold a list of values in every possible row. I ended up just doing one-hot encoding (and adding 20 columns full of sparse binary data in the process) but I had a thought: what if you use all prime numbers as index values, then simply multiply them together to produce a single BIGINT value. Then, when retrieving data from the database, you simply factorize the value and the prime numbers it yields will tell you what members of the list are present in that row's entry. Like:

userID | movelist
1 -------| 1914

When I want to retrieve the move list for user 1, I'd just:
>SELECT movelist FROM db WHERE userID 1;
which yields 1914. Then I take this number and factorize it yielding [2, 3, 11, 29]. My movelist table looks like this:

index | move
2 ------| jump
3 ------| punch
5 ------| kick
7 ------| eat
11 ----| slash

I agree that your solution sounds somewhat similar to bit-fields. Additionally, factoring (expensive) long composite numbers at lookup-time is much, much slower than the special-case of bit-fields (which basically uses powers of 2 from OEIS A000079 instead of prime numbers from OEIS A000040) where you can use simple bit-shifts, ANDs, and ORs to quickly test up to 64 bits in one CPU clock-cycle versus expensive loops and division operations for factorization.

Using prime factorization this way is borderline retarded.

Srsly use bitfields.

2 ------| punch
4 ------| kick

64 ----| scream
128 ----| cry

>You mean type errors?
I'm not sure you understood what I said... but, basically, I mean I'd rather have a compile-time error (Type errors are (usually) one such error of this kind.) than a run-time error. I'm not saying that it's a silver bullet, but only that it's better than what it came before it.

>I'm convinced that persistent programming problems are intractable.
I hope that you don't think that confusing feet with meters is an intractable problem.

shittiest part is the fucking meetings

fun part is not finding a solution from stackoverflow or github and building it yourself

So I'm kind of surprised to see someone trying to sell functional programming on here. Maybe you just haven't been around much yet, but "software people" do not want to use a functional programming language. Yes it would make them better programmers for learning it and would solve (or allow the automated solution of) many of their problems, but there is not an ice cube's chance in hell that anything other than Java, Microsoft's languages, C++, and other related atrocities will be used in the vast majority of applications. The reasons for this are social and political. Is it terrible that formal program verification is not being used on vehicles and in implants where program failure could cost human lives? Yes, but you would be better off not wasting your own life in trying to save all those lives lost to memory leaks.

There are limited real-world uses of functional languages in finance and in academia they are much more prevalent. Mathematicians and computer scientists do that stuff all the time. I do use Python for a lot of things myself, so I'm not a total fanatic when it comes to functional programming, but even Python would be an improvement over the state of things in commercial software development right now.

Idk man, Scala hits a nice sweet spot for a functional language in a production environment because its compatible with existing java libraries. My employer switched to it a long years ago.

Yeah but you still have to touch Java and are therefore living in sin.
