independent consultancy in IT , is it a bad idea? by Henry Bunnerway - Thu, 04 Feb 2016 12:04:06 EST ID:L84TsV52 No.35098 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

yoy /prog/ This is probably not programming related but nevertheless need some opinion of some form.
Being unemployed sucks. so a friend of mine asked me to join with and start an IT consulting firm. My friend is an experienced windows admin (who did this sort of thing before ) . i don't know much about windows but I can do a decent bit of linux. Like installing, configuring apache, nginx , nagios. and also i can script in bash, perl + python for programming. My friend knows a bit of webdesigning and currently does webdesigning as a part of the job. The current plan is to combine our skills and start some small consultancy /services.

My dilemma is this: I am socially awkward and I do not have any entrepreneur skills. Plus most of my friend's clients (i was introduced to a few of them) are small buisness owners. (like restaurants, law firms, clinics etc) and i haven't seen any small to medium buisnesses using linux for any of their applications.

is it really worth it to start a linux based consultancy? I mean if we do start who would be my clients? I do not know muhch about any linux based consultancy.

$15 vhost at rackspace? did i miss something, the last time i check for a cloud at rackspace, there was a $50 for service level . (at the minimum)

Also is there any advantage for rackspace, i was thinking more along the lines of linode or digital ocean.

What exactly isa mobil app? by Edwin Blammershit - Tue, 02 Feb 2016 06:27:47 EST ID:5MmdKA90 No.35095 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Stupid question, right? Well, maybe not.

I only recently got a proper smartphone. My previous one was really old had and difficulties running a lot of apps. So I've been just getting around using them lately.

One of them is this really dingy app made by the alumni organization of my university. It's used to replace a card they once gave out which you could use to claim discounts in a couple of places. It also serves as a kind of an oldschool web portal to a couple of relevant websites.

This got me thinking that what exactly is a mobile app? Facebook is a website. But also an app. Same goes for Youtube, Twitter, Instagram etc. What are these things, how do they work, what does one use to make them?

The reason I am curious is that I have an idea I could perhaps pursue. I'm a member of a student organization (continuing my studies at master's level) and we have a problem. A communication problem. We share the info on our events through Facebook, Twitter and oldschool mailing lists. Just like every other student organization. And the bigger organisation they are part of. And the university in general And...and you get the idea. The info gets drowned into other information.

So I as someone who studied the basics of comp sci and programming I thought maybe I could whip up some app which would basicaly alert people about these events. If you're interested in our events you could download it. It would contain a list of upcoming events and alert you a day before the event. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. Just something that would help us with our communication problem.

There's all sorts of app builders but I'd like to understand the process behind all of it before I try to do anything.

A phone app is just a locally installed program. When a company that shouldn't have an app tells you "Hey! Download our app!", the interface is often just a web view to a website but because it's an app they can push ads into your phone notifications and do all sorts of other things you probably don't want.

So, I've been interested in browser automation using Python for ages, and I just happened across the splinter module, which is great. I am not dead-set on using splinter for this, although the module will probably be involved in future ventures.

I would like to create a script that can go to a given page store all of the text from that page (html file or document, doesn't matter) while preserving the original formatting but leaving out images and such, navigate to every page linked to from the original page and do the same thing, and repeat the whole thing until I have the entire site archived on my computer. Of course, there would need to be some sort of safeguard so I only store that site, instead of the entire internet, ha.

What modules should I use for this? I've Googled it, but there are just too damn many and I suck too much at programming to figure out which one to use! xlml? BeautifulSoup? Point me in the right direction, guys.

Why would that be hundreds of files? Utilities for x in one file, utilities for y in another, a main file and some miscellanous stragglers that are probably going to just be configs. Like, if you have hundreds of files at 1000 lines of code, that's 10 lines of code per file. At 10000 that's 100. 100 LOC is not much.

Well, Java forces you to put every public class in its own file. C# and some C++ programmers tend to do this by convention, as well.


I could see that being doable at 12k LOC, but there's no way that's sustainable when you hit 100k LOC or even 1 million LOC. Not many one-person projects get that large, but it does happen, and for a lot of us (though perhaps not OP in this case) these projects are side projects. Using the same tools that you do at work cuts down on mental context-switching leads to better productivity.

Plus, even for small projects, I've found that using an IDE for debugging beats using a command-line debugger. Visual Studio's "parallel stacks" view in particular is fantastic. I showed that tool to a greybeard at work the other day and it blew his mind. I mean, look at this: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd998398.aspx

My problem is I want the first column info (images) to be presented horizontally like a gallery instead of vertically, since I am not very advanced is there any way to do this using html table or do I need divs?

It shouldn't be too hard. For each row of your table you should have:
<tr><td>your table row data</td></tr>
instead just have one set of <tr> tags with multiple <td> tags and everything should display on the same row.

Learn what MVC is. Embrace it. Use it. https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Model%E2%80%93view%E2%80%93controller

Right now, your code is deviating from MVC. It has the following problems:
(1) It doesn't store the model, but instead parses the html *every* time.
(2) It then modifies the current html, instead of generating new html.
Also, a flex box is *NOT* a table. The only thing the table tag should ever be used for is storing tabular data. (Tabular data is data that has records (aka rows in Excel) and fields (aka columns in Excel).) The table tag should *never* be used for layout, nor for a gallery of items. (A gallery is what's in your pic and my fiddle.)

You are getting this error because char is a primitive type, so you cannot use compareTo

You can simply use the == operator:

The pro way to solve this is to find an off the shelf object that does exactly what you need it to do: accept only unique elements and preserve their order. I don't use Java so I can't recommend anything. I'm not reading that mess, but I will tell you that the clean way to do this yourself is to have one method that returns the comparison result for one pair of strings and then have some separate logic for managing the inputs and their order.

What if, instead of comparing the characters in the Strings first and second, you compare the characters with what you have already added to the concat String

for each character in first
if character is not in concat, add it
for each character in second
if character is not in concat, add it

What is the best, or a viable coding or programming language, to learn that can help me get a job working from home on my computer, or if in an office where there will be very minimal interaction with customers?

Keep in mind I literally have no experience at all with coding or programming. I am just interested in learning something because I'm already constantly on my computer and my favorite type of jobs have been ones where I worked from home online. It's always been a curiosity, but at the same time seemed a bit intimidating.

Right now I have 5 options I could start on right away. Javascript, jQuery, PHP, Python and Ruby.
Which one would be lest to learn for a beginner that can be self taught? If all of these are bad choices please tell me and point me in the right direction. Any advice from those experienced will be much appreciated.

(1) jQuery is not a language; It's a Javascript library.
(2) I'd suggest learning Python first; It has the least amounts of skulldiggery in it. After that, learn all the rest (and Java, C, C++, C#, etc), becuase once you know a single imperative object-oriented language (which all those are), learning another is just a matter of taking a day to memorize it's standard library.
(3) HTML and CSS are very useful languages to know, because they're what every webpage is written in. (Warning: Webpage/Interface design is nearly a whole field itself. Please don't try to design a webpage/interface if you have no idea how, because you'll probably make an unusable mess that'll just confuse and anger users. Before you design **anything**, whether it's a computer interface, a door handle, or a chair, you should first read "The Design of Everyday Things" ( http://www.amazon.com/The-Design-Everyday-Things-Expanded/dp/0465050654/ ))
(4) Honestly, it's unrealistic to expect that you'll become a competent programmer in a week, a month, or even a year. It took me 3 years before I started writing code that I could come back to a couple months later and not be disgusted by.

http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/ he also has a free Ruby book.

After try an intro to computer science class like this one
And a specific web programming course like this awesome one (mainly Rails/Java)

Or pay for tuition to a remote codeschool
http://www.vikingcodeschool.com/ who will get you entry positions after.

Get some book on professional software programming such as Code Complete, Mythical Man Month, or The Practice of Programming. I've read all 3, have the 90s version of Code Complete it's still very relevant.

Get a book on web app security so you don't fuck everything up like The Web Application Hacker's Handbook.

If you don't know C on a fundamental level start there, if you do python.

The reason you absolutely want to know some C is that knowing about stuff like pointers and memory allocation on a practical level helps you avoid writing bad code in other languages.
It also is also important to know the most fundamental programming idioms that are present in C, even if you don't use them in other languages.
You don't have to be able to write complete applications in C, but you'd want to be able to read it.

I am having difficulty getting on with Android Studio. Just extracting the zip file creates nearly 800 megabytes of fluff. And it runs really slowly, it takes more than two minutes for it to redraw the window. Yes, I have a puny computer. And Eclipse is also not that light. So I want to start developing with some more sensible tools. With my non-android projects I use Geany which I like.

But when I've written my Java into the files, and I have an appropriate build.xml, how then can I make an APK out of this and have it deployed to my device? This is the question that has been bothering me.

I program Android applications in Guile Scheme and use this to cross compile to any platform http://www.lambdanative.org/

It was specifically designed for sensor hacking, so I can do a lot of shit with the censors that you can't easily do with Eclipse/Studio/Java because it would take me months of work.

You can build Android studio from command line http://developer.android.com/tools/building/building-cmdline.html if you don't want to load it up, or you can rent an AWS instance and build it on that if it takes too long. That's what I do since I am running OpenBSD and don't have BSD toolchains for things like Blackberry App building so write it on a laptop then rent a server for a few minutes to build it.

I'd like to automate a task to extract price data from hotel rooms at marriott which uses an MI file extension:
and the result page URL doesnt contain any info about your search:

So where do I even begin here? Step 1 would be to figure out a way to go through every page and click every "View Rates" link.
What language is good for web info extraction? Preferably something similar to c++ or python.
Thank you

As Im researching Selenium, I'm finding that 90% of the users are Indian.
What's the connection between Indians and Web Scraping?

Selenium is a test environment for web applications.
You probably know the connection between Indians and testing.

Here's an initial implementation using python's mechanize. It's pretty ghetto, but it works. It would be better if the search urls were constructed and the html scrapings came from BeautifulSoup or some other parser.

I am the OP and I approve of these posts.
Yeah thanks, I'll try these out soon. I tried using Selenium but gave up pretty quick when I couldn't get consistent test runs out of it.

if-then-else in haskell by Edwin Fosslemedge - Fri, 18 Dec 2015 05:33:45 EST ID:mQ9i+bCn No.34900 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Just a question to broaden my understand. consider the following

map (\x -> if p x then f x else g x) xs

  1. is there a way to write this statement without using if-then-else conditionals. The obvious choice would be to define a function and do it, but that would defy the pupose of having a lambda.

2. is this the only situation in haskell where we need to explictly use if-then-else conditionals? or are there other similar situations.

thanks a lot in advance.

I know nothing of haskell, but I'm guessing the if, then, else statements are already functions that know what to do with the rest of the sequence based on my extremely limited Lisp understanding.

(1) Well, you could use `bool` ( https://hackage.haskell.org/package/base- ), but imo if-then-else is easier to read.

Anyways, being somewhat relevant, the most commonly used special map function that comes to mind is `mapMaybe` ( https://hackage.haskell.org/package/base- ), which combines `map`, `filter`, and `fromJust`.
(2) You never "need" to use if-then-else conditionals. You can usually do something more elegantly with pattern matching or guards, but sometimes if-then-else is the most elegant.
