I read HN religiously, it's literally the first thing I look at after I open my eyes, so I know and respect tptacek & moxie. Still, for me, reading a lot about app sec/reversing or crypto neer really really sinks unless I'm using it.

I did try the Matsano Cryptopals challenges a few years ago but I found the instructions too vague, though that may have been a product of my limited understanding at the time.

I've been looking for jobs recently (not in the US, I don't like it) and most positions require a few years of commercial experience. At 30 I'm getting too old for untrained positions. Oh well.

You can also easily get into security just by being a developer who is proactive in finding bugs at work. Take any shit developer position, start auditing the codebase using TAOSSA and tptacek advice esp looking for password problems (like when LinkedIn didn't use bcrypt on their passwords) and you will quickly find yourself parachuted into the role of CISO as competent one's are impossble to find.

I would like to know what you all think of something I would like to do.

I see so many stupid fucking job postings, expecting years, sometimes decades of experience with stupid fucking technologies any decent computer scientist could pick up in a week or two... Some of them expect more experience with certain technology than possible, like 10 years for things that have only fucking existed for 5 etc.

I am sick of it, and I hate these idiotic fuckers.

I want to make a site that lists them, basically for people to spam.

I want to stop these fucking idiots from driving my pay rate down and getting away with forcing their ridiculous expectations on us.

Why the fuck is some shit monkey that flunked their way into an HR major allowed any input at all? Ask me to do what needs to be done, don't sign my paychecks if it doesn't get done.

I read an interesting explanation of this phenomenon from a supposed insider.

It goes something like, a company can fill a job very cheaply from these guys from India or wherever, but some legal stipulations force them to still advertise it, so they post openings but require insane things so that they can turn away candidates while covering their asses like "Heh, well, we tried!"

Yes, there is massive dissent against the developer hiring practices

The guy who wrote that created starfighters.io to bypass that bullshit. Also, all the insane shit they want "MUST HAVE 10 YEARS SR DEVELOPER EXPERIENCE WITH <INSERT 30 LANGUAGES AND A DOZEN TOOLS> " doesn't mean anything, you can still apply anyway and they will almost certainly interview you regardless. Problem is (as that above hiring post reveals) you end up spending a fucking week dancing for them and sometimes even performing free work "Complete this App for your interview.. oh btw sign this NDA so we can keep it".

This is close but I've heard it explained slightly differently. Not that it can cheaply be filled by someone in India, but that it is often promotion from within. A companies by laws will require positions to be advertised publicly to promote new blood instead of just promoting the same people with the same shitty ideas.

So to get around this a manager will have the person they want in the position update their resume in retardedly refined detail, and will then and turn around and write the qualifications off that persons resume. After a few weeks of the job being posted they can point to that one persons resume and say "Hey look, our guy is the only one qualified for the position, lets promote him instead of hiring someone new". They can claim they looked for a better candidate, but in reality they didn't. Instead they disqualified plenty of perfectly qualified people in favor of a perhaps less qualified person all because the qualifications were written such that only that one person would ever qualify for the job.

Sup, been learning C as of late from this book,
C Programming for the Absolute Beginner.
it is a light book so I should be able to finish it before next term.

Next term I am taking my Programming Fundamentals class in Python.
It is based on the Think Python book (greenteapress <dot> com), I have already read up to tuples.
Wanted to open a generall discussion for undergrad computer science.
I get the vibe that computer science programs do not teach you enough.
I am a little concerned by this, along with the fact I am a pleb at math.
(next term i'll be taking college algebra as well)

What should a computer scientist know? More importantly what is a good sequence for self-learning?
My intent is to read ANSI C next then Think Operating Systems to solidfy my knowledge on C.

To rephrase, I am trying to build my self a complimentary self-learning ciriculum that will blend alongside my actual studies. The college that I am attending is online and only accredited by the DETC. I am attending their because it is cheap but I want to make sure I have adequet skills.

Thats stupid advice.

I did IT, there was one CS class I did not have to take that the CS majors did.


Plus, I had to do statistics, economics, accounting and finance, all math courses, plus two other courses that were just straight math courses related to business math, that counted as prerequisites for all the same stuff the calc courses the CS kids did as well, they just had other things in them too, basic quant and actuary type stuff.

I still had to take all the discrete, algo design and architecture courses.

You actually have to do MORE math to get a BBA IT. At least you do at a real university, I think you are confusing an actual IT degree with those scammy TV ads or something...

OP here, just wanted to give an update.

How does my github look? My intent is to push various problems I am working on to my github to get used to using git and, if I am consist with my repositories, keep them there as evidence of my growth.


Meanwhile bought Lang's Basic Mathematics, plan to work through that and MIT's 6.00 intro to computer science (might do SICP if I get through it quickly but trying to focus on one thing at a time as to not get lost in novelty). Know a lot of it already but it will go over things like Big O notation that I do not yet fully understand.

Dropped from my online classes and decided to apply to a brick and mortar school for regional accreditation because I decided I wanted to make sure that I had the option of grad school since computation is starting to look very interesting to me plus better co-op opportunities.

So I'll be doing the above while working a dead-end job until fall term at which point I should be more than ready to go into the program with confidence and assurance.

Thanks to those who humored this thread this long and gave valuable advice on how to approach the field of computer science.

It's a degree on writing business software.

>...one of the top 5 suppliers of IT professionals to the Government ...

Yep thought that skill combo sounded familiar, private sector doesn't still use cobol and mainframes enough for people to want to learn it anymore. They're setting you up for a job translating old government cobol to modern languages. These contracts are all over the DC area in the US, I'd imagine Canada has a similar problem.

In the 70's/80's/90's governments bought big into these labyrinthine cobol/mainframe set ups. No one wants to learn cobol anymore though, so they can't replace their devops teams with new people easily as the old ones retire. So there's fucktons of these projects to rewrite these absurdly large important cobol Systems into languages like c# and java. You'll essentially be playing archaeologist, the people who originally wrote it died of old age or retired 10 years ago and the original documentation is lost or never existed.

But it's a good skill set anyway, just unless you don't want to do that be careful when they do that job placement section at the end.

Your work experience will define your career path far more than your degree will (unless you are top of your class at one of the top schools in your country). Once you get out of uni you can apply for an entry level position wherever you like. The difference to employers between say a CS or an IS degree particularly big since they know you're going to be inexperienced anyway. You won't pidgeonhole yourself just because you took a Networking class instead of an extra Software Engineering one.

The most important skill to learn at university is how to teach yourself. Once you get the hang of that you can go where you like and do what you want to an extent.

>lrwxr-xr-x 1 vagrant vagrant 9B Apr 15 2014 xxxxxxxx-> /xxxxxxxx/

the 'l' at the beginning denotes symbolic link, which means it redirects to wherever -> /xxx/ is which is probably empty. i'm also assuming you don't have a file there named "ls"

$ which ls (find where in ur path ls commands get sent)
$ /bin/ls -la /home/vargrant/public

The only reasons it would work when you signed in w/FTP is
1) Virtual consoles are corrupted, you signed into a new TTYscreen w/FTP https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/consoles.html so switch with Alt+F2
2) That FTP user has Paths properly set up in user .profile
3) Some weird ZFS error (google for ZFS ls bugs they found)

I'll be straight with you, I understood about 50% of this post.

As I mentioned earlier I'm a windows (l)user so a lot of the permissions shit hasn't been in my day to day education. However, I do understand sym links and appreciated the significance of the -> in the directory listing. I re-wrote the 'censored' paths in an incorrect way the second time and it fuck up my post.

Get this book and spend just 1hr going thru it while sitting in front of a terminal and this will all make sense (can also torrent it) http://www.nostarch.com/tlcl.htm most shells are the same. Win "powershell" is prob similar. For bezerker "devops" get the book SSH Mastery which is tiny so you can automate all of this easily.

Just use VirtualBox on its own.

Hello /prog/RAMers
I inquire your help with MATLAB. I am trying to generate an experiment for my course but am having trouble making a [y/n] screen. To further complicate things, I would like the y/n answers to tally up so that data can be generated.
Thanks in advance.

Really? I assumed the only people using FORTRAN are 60+ year old professors.

Apparently, plenty of people use FORTRAN. Mostly engineers I think.

> is the language used for programs that benchmark and rank the world's fastest supercomputers.
I also just learned there's an OO FORTRAN and a concurrent FORTRAN.

FORTRAN has a billion scientific libraries that are still in use today by physicists and engineers working on any sort of super computer or accelerator, also they are some of the most efficient implementations of relevant algorithms available. http://arstechnica.com/science/2014/05/scientific-computings-future-can-any-coding-language-top-a-1950s-behemoth/

COBOL is still everywhere.
Look at government or finance systems, they are usually old as fuck.
