I know this probably gets asked a ton, but can anyone direct me to a resource to learn coding myself online? The end goal being programming for video games. I have exactly zero knowledge of coding but I have the will power and plenty of free time. I'm a 3d artist and I'm tired of waiting for my faggot programmer friends to never get anything done.

Didn't think like creating a new thread would be appropriate, so I'll ask here. Would it be possible for someone mathematically autistic to become a competent programmer with a fair amount of time and practice? Mathematical concepts are honestly a real bitch for me to get my head around but the bit of scripting I've already gotten myself into seems like a breeze in terms of being able to understand most of the staples of it.

Depends on what you're coding, but if you keep exploring the world of computer programming, like it or not, you're gonna learn a lot of math along the way.
Just keep learning, man, if you're able to grasp at least the basics of a programming language, you're fully capable of learning more advanced math, both in many ways are all about abstraction.
Take some math classes alongside your hacking, it will help you in the long run.

No math is needed for programming, it just helps you be a better programmer/problem solver. For example if you wanted to manipulate graphics or find patterns, develop ranking algorithms you'd want Linear Algebra in your skill set to make these problems easier to program.

You declare i before using it in the loop, which is actually good practice, but you declare it again inside the declaration of the loop.

So i'm a senior at a smaller public uni in Texas studying computer science. I have a 3.8gpa (despite very minimal effort) and have never struggled with any course work but i'm wondering how this will compare to the real world. My classmates seem like idiots and i've had many cases where group members couldn't even grasp simple concepts like objects and pointers.

I can't help but wonder if this is the competition i will be going up against. I have no work experience in this field however i am currently searching for an entry level position or internship.

I'm somewhat worried about going to a real interview wondering if my degree will have prepared me enough. I am perfectly capable of learning on my own and don't even go to most lectures because i find them very slow and easy.

TL;DR how hard is it to get a decent job as a programmer? What can i do to prepare myself to interviews? Any insight would be greatly appreciated, sorry for the wall of text. also i plan on quitting smoking at the end of this week, how many of you were drug tested for similar jobs?

I currently work as a quality engineer for an IT company on behalf of a major bank that we have a consulting contract with. The way I got my job was that I got an invite to an information session this IT company was having with a presentation about the company and 4 week training program we'd go through if we were selected. After the presentation and Q&A, they conducted one-on-one interviews with each person there and it was no pressure and stress at all. Interviews are hard especially for me because they rely mostly on knowing what to say and shit instead of what you can do, which is bullshit but I understand why companies do that.

Anyways I got selected to do training and after 4 weeks of training, I was selected and hired on. It was a 1 1/2 month long process and I knew I'd get the job given the other people I was with but it was fun and a good learning experience. Like I didn't have a computer science degree (history major) and no IT experience but now I'm familiar with SQL, JSP, HTML, and Java. I primarily use Ruby (RubyMine with Cucumber) for automated testing though right now I'm doing manual testing for browsers using SauceLabs and GitHub as well as for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

>how hard is it to get a decent job as a programmer?
Depends on country and region. In Denmark, at least, it's near impossible unless you live in Copenhagen or Aarhus... As a result, I moved to Germany, where I work for a watch and jewelry company.
I got lucky though, such a good IT team don't hang on trees :)
With your GPA, it shoudn't be a problem getting into a bank or a good company.

>What can i do to prepare myself to interviews?
Have some useful programs or apps to show off on a PC or your cell/tablet. Preferably have a website where your upcoming employers can read more.

> how many of you were drug tested for similar jobs

>I'm somewhat worried about going to a real interview wondering if my degree will have prepared me enough
You'll never be prepared enough. The best you can be prepared, is by being willing to learn a lot and learn by doing. In the first 3 months alone I had to learn SQL, ASP.NET, CSS and Javascript, plus how to program for and use the most messed up ERP system on the planet.
As mentioned, if you get interviewed by a programmer/CIO, it's usually good, he knows his shit, what to ask for and what to look for. Be wary of middle management, HR girls and some CEOs. They rarely know shit or give a shit about IT. Make sure to get a decent feel and answer on how the vibes are in the department(s).

I don't know what to program anymore. So I was thinking a video game could be fun.

Android came to mind then. I don't know Java and Android programming much but do know C++ and OOP well enough, so I would like to think it shouldn't be too hard for me to learn.

Ironically I'm not much of a smartphone user, really. I do own a Samsung but never play games on it nor am I remotely interested in them. The main (or only?) reason it came to mind is that it seems to me like the most viable platform for an independent video game project should I want to share it, if it ever goes that far. By that I mean, you can make pretty simple games with average graphics that can still remain appealing enough to other people if it has the right gameplay/concept. And I'd really like that, other people playing and enjoying a game I've made.

I'm projecting way too far ahead anyway right now, and may be completely off and pipe dreaming about how I could make an appealing game all by myself.

It may just be the kid in me coming back. The one addicted to his NES who dreamed that once older he'd make his own games from scratch, with his very own vision, story, characters and all that good stuff. Anyway, let's not turn this into some /qq/ shit either.

What are you guys' thoughts on this? Also, how much am I trippin'?

>Android shouldn't be too hard for me to learn.

I've done lots of Android development. From simple shit all the way down to NDK work and making heavy changes to libcore.

Android is basically like what would happen if you were to create Autism: The Computer Program. I don't fucking know how google came up with half of the mind-bendingly retarded shit that exists in Android. What's the difference between Context, an Intent, and a Handler? LOL who gives a shit! Because google isn't gonna tell you!

And don't even get me started on the breathtaking atrocity that is the Android build system. It's the penultimate incarnation of not-invented-here syndrome...google decided to write what is basically their own little version of make but nothing makes sense and your input doesn't matter.

I don't know if source code can cause you to fall into a clinical depression, but the Android source tree will make you consider suicide once you start getting beyond anything more complicated than trying to coddle together a fart app. And even that will cause you to tear your hair out.

So good luck man.

So, for the last couple of weeks I've been messing around with pygame. Long way to go though before I can make a full fledged game. But I've learned a whole lot, and had a hell of a time implementing A* pathfinding.
Anyway, I'm wondering what other game dev frameworks I should be looking at. I just installed cocos2d-python, and from a quick look at it, it seems like it might make my life easier since it has a lot of built in things that I would have to code myself in pygame, like the "actions" module for example, but I'll have to see after some experimentation. Also, OpenGL should give me better graphic performance than pygame's old SDL wrapper, correct?

Obviously there are other languages than python I could be using, but since that's the language I'm most proficient in I thought I'd at least start there. Also I'm more inclined towards building mostly in code rather than using some drag and drop game design suite, like Unity and such. But that's just me.

Of course, different jobs, different tools and all, but what I have in mind right now is a 2D hack-n-slash platformer game, so I'm looking for the tools best suited towards that job.

I would have thought A* would be available out of the box with most game libraries, or were you implementing it for fun?

Can't help you much with suggestions other than what I've read countless times in countless places; don't focus on graphics, sound or trying to revolutionise the gaming world until you've been through the dev/test/release cycle and produced something, anything, a few times and had at least friends play it and enjoy it. Your first games will be shit, same as any software project.

I would stick with pygame. As >>34599 said the most important thing when starting out is just finishing the game.
Afterwards you could even port it to other frameworks if you wanted to.

Haha, yeah this is just my hacky debugging view, made it easier to visualize where I was going wrong while implementing the pathfinding.
Pygame mostly just handles drawing things on screen by the looks of it, plus input and collision detection.
Seems like the rest is up to you, or that's been my experience. So I had to generate nodes on top of every walkable space and get the links between them based on how high and how far the player can jump. Learned a lot working it out, even though it's all been done a million times before. The actual A* it self was pretty much a copy paste job though once the graphing was done.

You're probably right, it's easy to get caught in the cycle of moving from one tool to another without ever producing anything substantial. Probably should just keep on trucking with what I've got so far. Definitely have no hopes of revolutionizing the gaming world just yet, just hoping to make something that is at least fun to play.

The cheapest and easiest* way for you to accomplish this is probably using WordPress, a free/cheap template, and BbPress (forum that integrates nicely with WordPress). You could dedicate a board on the forum to user-submitted news, or create a simple form (Ninja Forms) that users can fill out to submit stories which you vet and publish as blog posts.

Real-time chat is a bit more complicated and I've never implemented anything like that, but a cursory search indicates there are plugins available for this as well (https://wordpress.org/plugins/chat-room/).

  • Easiest = relatively speaking. WordPress is pretty beginner-friendly but you will still need to learn a lot, including some security and how to read and write templates (HTML and PHP).

Yea, better to write you own login system that allows user uploads.

Hey, I said "cheapest and easiest", not "best". Besides, I work with WordPress on a daily basis and simple, low-traffic sites can easily be hardened against spam, XSS and brute force attacks using freely available plugins.

That is until the wordpress dev team decides to build in yet another totally useless series of mostly redundant hooks in order to get some obscure third party social plugin to work that is half-thought out and full of security holes, and it negates all of your protections. See that's the primary reason I stopped using WP is because their main dev team is literally incapable of not fucking with it, and they fuck with it literally every chance they get!

So I'm interning at a software company, making my first app. We're using PhoneGap/the ionic framework for the front end, which uses AngularJS and HTML, and for our back end we're using Ruby on Rails.
I'm trying to write an "Edit Profile" page that gets info from the database (id, name, phone #, etc.), pulls it up in a text field, and lets you modify the text field, then when a button is clicked, posts that data back to the database per user ID that's selected (we don't have a log in yet so I'm manually setting the ID). I'm having a bunch of trouble with sending it back, though, because I'm not sure how to structure the $http.post in my controller. I'm still learning the syntax of $http in Angular, but I'm not sure how I should go about reading the user-inputted data in the text fields, into the scope variables in the controller and posting it to the database. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

is the pastebin. The name of the function that I'll be using to change the profile info is changeInfo. Thanks to anyone who answers!

What you want to use is the attribute ng-model on the input. Also you want to use ngResource instead of pure $http.

Save all the stuff in an object, then save it as a ngResource.

Read the Documentation.

Building a Pharmacy site... I got the pills need distribution. by Shit Sannerfuck - Tue, 18 Aug 2015 08:54:27 EST ID:GIvL0exo No.34441 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Good evening,
I been studying the code of a few online pharmacy sites... but I was hoping to hit a turn-key solution to get a website up and running.

I banged out websites back in the day.. but this project is a whole other level with security being a huge issue. Payment gateways, etc... making my head spin.

Just looking for advice on best webhosting with no issues since essentially we will be offering 3 types of drugs for sale to begin ( boner pills, arthritis, and one other).
We have no plans to enter the USA market to begin with, btw. I dont need to hear that countries "legal/illegal" bullshit. The country its beginning from - its legit.
( oh and not from this IP address you see.)

The drugs are totally legit 100% direct from the manufacturer, which I am excited about. We have no plans to fuck people over... I want to do this right 100%.
Any advice on this subject greatly appreciated.

BTW, I was going to post this under "other drugs"... but I dunno.. at this stage we are at building a site.

I need to get this taken care of first. I got the supply... I just need the distribution really.

If it's legal in the area you plan on running it, then find a local service to host it.
A company has to obey the local legislation, so don't try to host in anywhere where your business is not legal.
Also you probably don't want to sell to other countries either, or at least check with you lawyer what's your extradition policy.

Also I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Don't use a .com either because the US have used that as an excuse to steal domains.

Jesus christ that's insane!

The message from the case is clear: all dot-com, dot-net, and dot-org domain names are subject to U.S. jurisdiction regardless of where they operate or where they were registered. This grants the U.S. a form of "super-jurisdiction" over Internet activities since most other countries are limited to jurisdiction with a real and substantial connection. For the U.S., the location of the domain name registry is good enough.

Many issues. I have exp in this from years ago.

First, if any of those drugs are patented (even the names) then you're still fucked by the global copyright cartel that can shut you down, sue or jail you.

Second, if any of your payment methods are US, owned by a US holding corp or pass through the US (like a correspondent bank converting Eur to USD) then the Americans can still fuck you regardless of you selling to the US or not unless you can get licenses or just pray they never discover you (unlikely, they will find you).

Third, "direct from manufacturer" is almost certainly bullshit. You mean generics direct through a middle man in India or China. Unless you are buying wholesale in the millions the manufacturer is not directly selling to you. If you deal with Thailand or Cuban pharma real stores you can get in on a group buy, getting actual drugs direct from manufacturer (for non restricted things) as Bangkok pharmacy storefronts are all super corrupt.

Fourth: safety. If you don't want to fuck people over you will have to independently test the generics at random intervals, because likely they are dangerous esp if coming from anywhere in Asia through anything except a physical middle man like a real pharmacist as mentioned above in Thailand.

Finally your store. Getting into the e-pharma world means immediately attacked by the legions of blackhats hired by shady epharma ripoffs. So when you put up your Russian website they will blast you off the intertubes and demand ransom. You also need a properly encrypted database, that is separate from whatever server/VM that is hosting the user interface so it can't be jacked and have all your penis pill customers start getting blackmailed or harassed.

You could look at all the other epharma stuff online and see what they are using for hosting, or go with katzglobal (China hosting) they have been around since the beginning of time hosting pharma sites.

If you find somebody who knows what they're doing you could try "Cocaine", the Russian Platform-As-A-Service (PaaS) site by Yandex and just have the database on amazon/google app engine but encrypted. https://tech.yandex.com/cocaine/

OP Here, Thank for this brilliant post, very helpful. These have been a few of my many worries that I need to be mindful of.

The drugs do not come from any middle man... or this contact that I have is making peanuts off of me. Yes, generics... and I have spoken to a few lawyers about what to worry regarding that as well. Eventually I will probably get a knock on the door but hopefully by then my assets will be safeguarded properly.
We are probably going to enter darknet world... even though its a den of thieves, its a huge market amongst other opportunities we see. Yes, USA's reach is very far. I been studying Pirate Bays story to get more insight on how they run their ship as well... amazing detail. I probably need to hire better skilled people to for this adventure. I'll post an update in a few months time. Good or bad.
