I've been getting caught up in other shit letting a lot of my programs fall apart. Last thing I worked on actually won me a Hackathon but its like my programming urge died after I won that hackathon. Actually had a mini breakdown on my way back from the East Coast. Anyways, here's a motivational phrase that got me back into programming though I think i'm going to sign up for a programming class regardless instead of working and learning alone

Ad altiora tendo ad abitrium

I find negative reinforcement can help too in a pinch to get you through a project you really don't want to do. Count your blessings and try and remember why you are there, for me it's the fact 60% of my tuition is covered for me and I have good ass job so I'm not broke like many of peers who are struggling worse than me (some of these mother fuckers have kids) It kind of guilts you into getting your shit together and busting it out.

They either bail on you and cancel the interview they set up, or they have almost no domain knowledge and try to match you with a position you’re not qualified for and not interested in.
This guy just tried to set me up for an interview with a job as a healthcare data analyst, where they use all this pharmacy-specific software and some other medical stuff I’ve never heard of. He just wants his commission so he’ll send over any candidate hoping eventually one works.

I've studied IT and computer science. I have work experience under my belt, tech certifications, know multiple programming languages and frameworks and operating systems, have personal projects on GitHub, made websites for people, read tech books in my spare time, go to hackathons and networking events, etc. But it's so hard to keep up with all the industry changes.

Before I have a phone interview for next week, I have to learn a new programming language and a new web server platform. I also have to brush up on a different language I haven't really used in a while, and I also have to get familiar with a certain program I haven't used that much. I probably won't get the job. It's so exhausting to have to constantly learn new shit all the time. It'll always be like this, since tech is always changing.

How do you manage all of it?

Embedded, sort of. Depends on the industry but in general new developments can only occur as fast as the functionality built into the microcontrollers is changing.
There is still changes, rapid changes in comparison to other professions but you won't have to learn a new tool every month "just" every year.

There are other markets like the desktop business software and other things that depend on proprietary apis in finance and stuff. Those are pretty close knit though and if you don't already know somebody you won't get into that.
It's a dying market anyway.

Both come with one obvious caveat: In about a decade you won't find any existing application that doesn't involve some sort of Internet connectivity already because all the new shit people currently develop is built with that in mind.

On how to deal with it: Just suck it up.
You can of course tell your boss that you can only learn one new thing at once not several, but if you do that you will be using that one thing for the next 2 months. (And if you aren't bored out of your mind already, they will find new stuff for you to do with the thing you are presumably are now an "expert" on)

Read the sicp. Use DrRacket in legacy mode (plt-r5rs) to run the exercises. You'll start off doing basic arithmetic and eventually write a virtual machine in scheme (which is basically diet lisp). At that point you will know more about programming than most CS undergrads.

And the book won't just teach you scheme. You'll learn most of the basic patterns for building complex programs and how to create analogous structures in any language.

I am from an animation and design background. I have a long-term app project in mind but I'm almost a total beginner. I am literate enough to read Java the best.

I am currently reading a C# book which claims to teach good general programming but the format of the book is very slow. This might sound precocious but I am eager to jump into writing a functional app ASAP. I'm essentially trying to create my own day planner with task setting, tracking and completion.

I'm not looking for pointers towards this straight away, but which language is best to start in, and which exercises are most beneficial? Sorry if my neophyte garble annoyed anyone.

I've been using an electronic drum kit to my drums in Ableton Live, but Ableton's default drum rack, while still being the best for what I need, doesn't do everything I need it to. But all the other drum VSTs I can find are even farther away from what I need. The task seems to be bigger than the one friend I have who can program things so I'm wondering who I should ask. Where (IRL or online) and how would I go about finding a professional who could make a custom VST? And how much should I expect to have to pay? I can share more details on what I need if there's anyone who can answer this for me, or on the off chance that someone here would be interested in the task.

I am not an audio expert, so I can't really speak to the audio-specifics of your request. But from my brief research it looks like you need a VST plugin to be authored (probably a VST 2.0 plugin, since they are more compatible with more software than VST 1.0 or VST 3.0 plugins). Steinberg released the VST plugin specification so that people can author their own VST plugins, and also so that various sound and music tools can integrate VST plugins. Typically these plugins are authored in C++ (as on Windows they are basically just DLL files).

I think that if you want to find someone who can make your electronic drum kit do all the things you want it to do, that you'll probably have to talk with an audio engineer (who knows C++) and find out from them what they think it'll take. This will probably depend heavily upon what features you want it to have that you don't already have access to. I don't know what the going "rate" is for purchasing plugins generally, so I cannot assess a price.

I have a question about something not working in my coding. Normally in these situations this calls for throwing out some easy answers with a healthy dose of derision and scorn.

One: What must i do to convince you that i have tried my best to solve this before coming to you?

Two: I request someone to walk me through the solution to this problem like a parent dragging a young child through a busy city street. I have worked at this for so long, that i am starting to lose confidence i ever knew anything at all, and i consider it fully possible that i am missing something on the level of "Is the cord plugged in?"

Okay, here's the problem. I am learning openGL. I am using this website to do it: https://learnopengl.com/, i am currently walking through their 2D game tutorial shown here: https://learnopengl.com/In-Practice/2D-Game/Setting-up and i cannot, for the life of me, get glew to work.
I am on windows. I am using codeblocks. When i do everything i know should work, i get a shit load of undefined reference errors.


That says to me that i am somehow linking to the glew library wrong. But i have been trying fookin' EVERYTHING. Literal days. Possibly months, because this isn't the first time i've tried to tackle this - i think i gave up on codeblocks last time and just used visual studio, because for some reason that works easier - but i don't know why and that's terrible for learning.

When i DONT use glew, i can make openGL programs just fine. Hell, given how much time i've invested in this, and how it's likely that there is NO solution known to god or man, i'm probably better off just figuring out what the tutorial is trying to do and figure out how to translate it OUT of glew than get glew to work. But the fact that it SHOULD work and i can't get it to is making my brains leak out of my HEAD.

So if you believe me that i wouldn't be asking you if i could find a (WORKING)solution anywhere on google, or glew's support pages, or shit like that. Please please please tell me how to fucking do this.

I have tried linking glew and openGL at the same time. OpenGL has been linked during every experiment i tried. And i know it's connected correctly because when i am not using glew - when i am running earlier tutorials like https://learnopengl.com/Getting-started/Coordinate-Systems , it works fine. But note, glew isn't used in that program.

I haven't yet tried(this time) compiling my own glew. I will try that now.

However i have no intention on using visual studio. I really really dislike it. Not for a good reason. For a really petty reason. It feels... bulky to me. No specific thing. Just it feels like codeblocks is like using a violin, and using visual studio feels like using an accordion. Every time i've got in coding moods in the past, i end up stopping because i HAVE to use visual studio, and i just really don't like it.

Okay, i am having serious difficulty figuring out how to build glew on windows in codeblocks.

It basically seems that EVERYTHING IN THE WEEERLD is designed with the notion in mind that codeblocks is only for non-windows systems, and windows systems should only be using visual studio.

Also, i may have bumbled into successfully building the glew library, but it's in the form of "libglew32.a", which i've never been clear on whether that format is usable by windows or if it's a linux only format.

Can i link against somethingSometh.a on a windows machine and have it work like a somethingSometh.lib?

You could try using the mingw compiler directly from the command-line to compile and link your code. Alternatively, you could try using Clang from the command-line to compile and link your code.

Both of these should work on Windows (provided you make sure to download the version of Clang that builds on Windows for Windows, as opposed to the version of Clang that builds on Windows for Linux).

What's the deal with C++ templates?
I'm looking for explanatory videos on it that is reasonably well produced
(not some autistic dude rambling to a screen recording)

Doesn't have to be a video though if it's well written. All explanations I've found so far don't give me any reason of why to use them at all (instead for instance method overloading)

Some time I'd need to for instance loads of static data that I could define by hand but still would like to take advantage of encapsulating things that resemble state machines in classes.
I use C++ for microcontrollers, never on a PC and some times access to hardware can't be done inside a class the straight forward way, like storing pointers to a hardware pin, timer register, etc... inside anything non-static.

For embedded code, you probably don't need templates for much. Maybe if you have 8, 16, and 32-bit data types you could write code that could use any of those interchangeably, but I don't think it'd be as useful for you as for someone writing for more flexible systems.

You can do a lot more with templates than just generic types like some noobs would say. There is a famous book on templates called C++ Templates: The Complete Guide.
