Hey /prog/,
In the Internet of Things, how do people get all these devices connected to their internet? Do the devices need a keyboard interface of some sort so users can enter their wifi info? I just don't understand how you can achieve connectivity without having some local relay that handles the internet part for you - which seems ridiculous...
I'm just trying to get a nightlight connected and it seems ludicrous to have to program a display and pushbuttons just for password entry. I hope I'm missing something

Alright nyiguh nyiguh, I have read a shit ton of iot papers, but all they talk about is the usual buzzwords like M2M, P2M, what have you.
All I wanted to know is if there's an easy way to connect my fucking night light to wifi, but I guesss that's not a good enough question for your frekin board.
Maybe if I had asked, "hey /prog/, what's a good book to learn python?" or "what's your favorite part about Haskell?" but holy frekin Damn if someone comes here looking for an actual technical solution to something.

These days everything is "iot", while it's really not.

The crux of the matter is ISPs still don't allow their private customers to a) run their own router and b) assign ipv6 addresses to their devices.
For instance the Philips Hue gateway may be a nifty contraption and it let's you control the illumination of a room using zigbee light-bulbs, but they are not INTERnet of things because they do not have a publicly accessible ip address.

Enough of the rant, if you want to do "IOT" stuff get a Raspberry PI 3, if you know python you are all set.

OP, one way to do it would be to have your device connect to your phone via bluetooth, then do the wifi setup for your device from your phone. You could make a simple app for this, or you could just use a pre made app to send information across bluetooth.

I work as an administrative assistant for a life insurance agent so I need to make calls to clients and keep a somewhat detailed record (in the form of an excel file such as pic related). Is there a way I can create a program, preferably in java, which extrapolates data from the individual sheets into a single cohesive database which I can make a GUI for to search for specific phone number, name, etc. and see the results associated with it? My Java skills are basic to moderate but if you point me in the right direction, I'll probably get how to do it. thanks y'all

Trust me, any kind of GUI you or anyone writes is gonna be vastly less powerful than Excel. I suggest learning how to use it better, learn some VB scripting or whatever you use in Excel these days.
However, if you're dealing with shit tons of data (more than you can reasonably fit in one excel sheet), then maybe you need a database backend. I actually think MS added a feature for using MS SQL server as a database backend for Excel, it sounds ridiculous, but it might be what you need.

If the data across all excel files is small enough to keep in memory on your workstation, then what I would do is simply create a script to concatenate all the sheets. Look up how to read and write excel files in your programming language of choice (Java) and start by combining all the files.

I'm going to look into your second suggestion and probably just write and read the files in excel. What I wanted to do though is read the information from the files into a map or list of 'client'-data type objects that have their first and last name as well as the date and time called and also the results of that call. That way I can make a program through which I search a client's name and it uses the name as a key for the map and returns the associated information, you feel?

Sure, go wild with it, making something practical is a great way to learn. Just start with figuring out how to read excel files in Java and go from there. Then you can dive into the world of relational databases, so you can run SQL queries on your data, maybe you wanna do different queries, like look for a client by phone number, or find all the appointments for next thursday, or whatever.
SQLite is a great starting point, single file database so you won't have to worry about setting up a server and all that stuff, just focus on learning SQL.

Hey
What is a good proper way to asynchronously run multiple http requests from within a celery task?
Some background; I am coding a web API with Flask, when the API receives a request it spins up a celery task in the background.
The celery task itself needs to run several (>100) outbound web requests, and the problem is, the whole process is too slow. But since most of the waiting time is just waiting for web requests to return, what I want to do is run some of those requests in parallel to speed things up.

I know how to use multiprocessing.ThreadPool and whatnot, but how would this work if I have a bunch of celery workers spawning multiple threads at the same time? I don't wanna kill the server if I get a spike in traffic, and I assume if I throw some of those requests over to one of the other celery workers (nest the tasks) I'll end up with a deadlock.
Can I have something like a shared threadpool across all celery workers, or what is the proper way to handle this?

Thanks

If you're asking a question like this, I would tell you to stay away from the multiprocessing module. Eventlets are probably what you want. If you're worried about the thread count or network resources, mock it up and try to run the server into the ground before you over engineer anything. The more realistic concern is probably rate limiting with third party services. I'll bet you can do that more confidently with Redis than what Celery gives you out of the box.

The main reason I'm using celery is because the requests are gonna be coming in through a mobile app from users who are potentially on shoddy connections, so requiring to keep an open http request for >30 seconds doesn't seem very reliable. So once I get the request, I just send it off to celery and respond right back with a task ID and the app polls for the result every x seconds.

I'm looking into gevent and eventlet right now, sounds like it's what I need. Should give me some concurrency, without out the complications of spawning multiple threads on each celery worker. Then if I can speed things up enough, I might not even need celery at all.

I used to work for a modernization/migration company.
We would take your existing source code, parse it into a language agnostic model, then convert it to a language specific model, then generate into the new language. For example we'd parse COBOL, put it in a transitional model, then translate that model to any other language you wanted, i.e. C++. The process seems like voodoo, and it basically fits your idea of a universal language. Trans-piling is something different.

I am inclined to say that this is impossible. First of all, some languages have referential transparency while some do not, so any universal translator will need to "understand" what it's translating in a relatively deep way. For anything that touches memory directly you have not one model of computation but many depending on what type of machine the program is being run on and what state it's in. For purely functional languages you could spew out an equivalent program in a different purely functional language, but that program might not have anywhere near the same meaning to a human programmer, since in general there are many sources that compute the same function.

Actually, this might just reduce to the halting problem. If I had a universal program translator then it would send source code for a program that does not halt to source code for another (equivalent) program that does not halt. However, we know by the halting problem that there is no finite-length program which can make this determination in a finite amount of time, so the universal translator cannot exist.

I work in a McJob. I had to control key lends of a building and send email when the badge arrives.
I made a program in Java, that reads the excel file .xlsx with the key numbers and name and put it on a sqlite3 db.
I don't have access to the enterprise database, so II use a webscrapping lib to get the name of the employee by the internal id.
It was possible to play with sql and get some usefull stuff as search for people or keys. All employee was registered with date/hour that got the key, when got it and when delivered.

About the badge, I made a program that reads the input of a badge reader, that I found on reception deskt. Remember I used a web scrapping lib? I got the number of the badge, figure out how to get the registry by the badge number, search the website of intranet got the name and email. Put the email on a sender list and set the program to open a new email, openniing the default email program, calling all to get the new badge with a default message. Much less painful than typing all emails.


I think that my MVC wasn't very good, but it worked like a charm.
The ugliest code was on webscrapping because it was try and error, since the site didn't named any tags!

Do you think I could work coding? I'm I good programmer? I do it just for fun and hobby.
I don't know how professional programmers job is.

Does your program have a UI? Did you even try to separate the UI into a logical model, presentation and user interaction components?

If not, you're not doing MVC. That's not necessarily bad, if you don't have a UI, you don't need it anyway. Don't be a framework fanboy that has to tick off all the buzzwords on every project.

It sounds like you could work as a coder. I've worked with people who couldn't do as much on their own. Why not apply for a job as a junior/trainee programmer? You'll get trained much quicker in the trenches than experimenting on your own.

Python is an awesome language, however I would not wish it on my worst enemy as a first language. Yes, it's easy to understand and the syntax is logical. Yes, many things are vastly simplified by how easy they are to implement with just a few lines of code. However:

The community sucks, the tutorials suck, and the flexibility sucks.

Everybody wants to force on you their way of doing things but they never explain their reasoning(which is usually wrong or just a preference anyway).

Tutorials are bad for this reason also, and there's a very limited selection of them.

There's not much you can do on a learner's level besides print Fibonacci

Python just isn't a language that is widely used for game development.

In scientific computing and somewhat in the web backend development things look quite different. For web development you can pretty much choose any language that is widely used enough.

Python is the best tool if you want to write your own command line utility and to generate and manipulate data that is stored to be used by another program.
Want to calculate a lookup table for rgb LEDs based on spectrometer images?
Want to parse a logfile for certain error messages?
Call a web API or scrape some data?
Need to generate some proprietary XML like file format?

All things python is simply the best tool.


If you want to use python in game development properly you can, using ctypes and C/C++. Write the game logic in python and the engine and game loop in C/C++.

Invent Computer Games With Python is a pretty good book for beginners, and you can read it all online for free on their website (https://inventwithpython.com/chapters/). It's focused on writing simple games, but the stuff you learn can be applied to anything else, and writing games is a very rewarding way to learn programming IMO.

Now I'll start unnecessarily editorializing: Python is decent as an introductory language, just to learn the very basics of programming like conditional statements and loops and arrays, but if you already know that stuff (and it seems like you do) you should just jump right into something like C++ or Java because there's vital stuff you need to learn there that you won't learn with Python; dealing with static typing, memory management, optimization, etc. And as much as it tries not to be, Python is pretty lenient and lets you get away with doing a lot of stuff you shouldn't do and you'll end up having to get out of a lot of bad habits. Same thing happened to me when I first started programming in BASIC (I'm old) - when I moved on to Pascal and C++ I had to unlearn all the stupid things BASIC let me do.

I'm pretty new to serialization, the only time I've done it in the past was in a roguelike game I wrote in Python ages ago that used a YAML serialization library, and I've never done it in C++. Everyone says to use Boost, but I'm running Codeblocks on Windows and trying to compile it for that has been nothing but trouble, and all the information I've found on how to do it is out of date. Is there another decent library for serialization, preferably one that has pre-compiled builds available?

If compiling Boost code is a bridge too far for you, you are using the wrong fucking language.

Don't use codeblocks, if you want a decent open source c++ IDE get
qt creator
You don't have to use qt with it and are perfectly fine if you're just using SDL.

But honestly if you don't own a premium IDE package doing a full project in C++ is a pain. Why not make the game loop/engine in C++ and use Ctypes and python for the high level stuff. Even more so persisting and serializing data would make much more sense to be done in python.

OP you should use Visual Studio now that you can get a free version of it that doesn't have all of the features stripped out. It's what most other people use to build large projects on Windows.

Absolutely.

Oh, and don't forget to setup a CI environment, because that's also a must in large projects.
