Help with responsive design CSS+HTML? by Edward Sesslefield - Thu, 20 Aug 2015 14:08:14 EST ID:UL/DRHhm No.34465 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I'm trying to help a friend out with making his site work with mobile, and since there are a great many pages on the site, I would much rather do responsive design than a separate mobile site. The problem is, I can't get things to work right.

Thumbnail is what site looks like, a quick mspaint mockup of what I'd like the mobile one to look like is at https://www.anony.ws/image/DW4V
HTML: http://pastebin.com/nCqenejj
CSS: http://pastebin.com/JJe21f3N

The less HTML changes, the better so that I don't have to edit all ~200 pages, but any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help!

Turns out I'm just an idiot and had the schema set at CSS2.1 instead of CSS3.
Now the only parts left to do (at least for the homepage) are to remove the top image (easy), remove the yellow line that goes down the page (not sure what's even making the line), make the navigation list with Twitter and stuff scale (medium-hard), and make the menu collapse (hard)

So I am completely new to programming. I'll be taking a web developing course that will teach me pretty much everything except C. I know that there is C, C+, and C++ What is the real difference between these? Which one should I start learning first? If Are the pluses just more advanced versions of the previous ones? Like if I learn C++, will I automatically know C and C+ ?

Answers to a short haskell 101 course.
The most complex piece was an implementation of binary search tree, about hundred lines of code.
All the exercises combined there's probably between 600-800 lines of code.

Unfortunately the I took course was taken down.
LYAH itself is just a book (a free one at that: http://learnyouahaskell.com/chapters), but doesn't include any exercises. Someone has produced a few, quality varies, but I guess they're better than nothing at least: https://github.com/noelmarkham/learn-you-a-haskell-exercises
Then there's https://wiki.haskell.org/H-99:_Ninety-Nine_Haskell_Problems which are reasonable as long as you skip all the randomness questions on your first go.
No, I haven't solved all these, less than half IIRC.

I've always been interested in computers. Even messed around with coding a little bit when I was younger making Adobe Flash games. Would it be possible to learn programming/computer science by myself instead of getting a degree and get hired by a major tech company? I want to get an accounting or finance degree (currently in college) because I have family in the industry and I feel like I fit well for it. However I can't help but want to pursue my interest in technology. I want to make good money from whatever I decide to do and would like to explore computer science and learn programming languages by myself while I'm in school but only if tech companies will take me seriously if I choose to go that route. Thanks guys

Consultants where I live specialize in something, like trading optimization or algorithm development or security code review and charge $2,000 per day. It's the top tier of contractor developer jobs.

Full Stack Developers are also in high demand remotely, you can make about $160k USD per year just maintaining some startup web app or online store. Pretty easy to get into this work, look up what flavor du jour these startups are all using like Coffeescript, AngularJS, Ruby, Chef or Ansible, Docker, version control (git) ect.

If you want extra money, move into security by running basic security tests to expose bugs. Read about how to safely set up an AWS account so if it gets jacked you don't lose all your servers. https://cloudonaut.io/your-single-aws-account-is-a-serious-risk/

Read why Gmail can't be trusted as your only authentication method since it's so easy for somebody to reset the password by just spoofing the phone number. Disable SMS for 2-step and SMS for password resets and use a 2-step mobile app. It's little advice like this that the company 'founders' will have no idea about and will save them massive PR humilation should they lose their Gmail account to some Polish hacker holding it for ransom.

After finding bugs, and being proactive in priv segregating your infrastructure to prevent easy attacks you'll get rewarded with "Chief Security Engineer" position because literally nobody knows anything about security, it's just a vast field of clueless devs who are doing things like directly pulling in ruby gems and installing them with full privs blindly on the command line piping them to sh

Now that you're good at security tests, and implemented all the OWASP recommendations start reading advanced books on web app security, and get everything you can on security code assessment http://taosecurity.blogspot.ca/2011/09/impressions-art-of-software-security.html to further expose bugs.

Forking is cloning. Github specifically makes the distinction because you can't push upstream unless you're listed as a contributor, but to git itself, and version control in general, there's no "technical" difference (and there's no special command for it either). Intuitively, it's just cloning with the intent to modify the code without pushing all the changes back upstream. But in git's understanding of the world, there is no upstream. There's just the code here, and the code there, and a difference of hash values.
Thus, forking then cloning is nonsense, since you're doing the same action twice.

As for caring, the whole point of OSS is that anyone can come in and modify the code to suit their own purposes. Fundamentally, being free to fork code without a care in the world is the whole point. And the ideal of the so-called hacker is that his code is forked often, as it means he has written good code, and done good work, such that his fellow hacker can appreciate and utilize his efforts.

There are some politics in the matter, but for the most part not really. the future's /g/ throws a fit every now and then about a repo being cloned, and it being "unfair" to the original authors, but its mostly nonsense.
And then you have the scenario when, in a scene where there really isn't any competition or "major" forks, such a fork suddenly comes about, and you have controversy. Like neovim, and xemacs. In this case the changes are so drastic, codewise that the fork can't contribute back to the mainline, yet use-wise, they fulfill the exact same niche.
But thats not something you need to worry about.

Fork as much as you like, no one cares. Ideally, if your changes are good, contribute back upstream, but there's nothing that actually compels you to do so.a

time.localtime() converts unix time, to, well, local time.
If you don't give it an argument, it will simply use time.time() (which produces the current unix time, in milliseconds), which is presumably what you want it to do.
Now the question is, how in the hell do you represent time? 4:20pm simply isn't enough information to cover all cases and needs that localtime() might be used for, or any other time function.
The problem you're having is that "4:20pm" does not conform to the same structure as time.localtime (which produces a struct_time object), and thus the comparison is invalid.

From there, you have multiple options, but since localtime() produces an object, you could simply compare against its attributes.
a = time.localtime()
if a.tm_hour == 17 and a.tm_min == 20:

The datetime method is basically the same.

Why does a function
int doSomething(int x, int y)

do the same thing as
int doSomething(int &x, int &y)

Whats the difference in calling the variable and it's address if the result is the same?

Those aren't actually pointers, btw. Pointers look like this:

>When you pass a reference as a parameter, it directly manipulates the variable itself.


> Therefore to return data from a function that manipulates data from pointers, you have to return the *variable since there's no local data to return.

Returns are copies as well, you can do

One thing to note is that pointers (int *x) and references (int &x) are not quite the same thing. A pointer is a variable that represents a memory address. You can dereference it, take pointers to it (int **x), and even perform arithmetic on it.

You can do none of those things with references, which are basically declaring to the compiler that you want a variable to represent some other variable without explicitly having to deal with that fact. This means that the compiler might optimize things around behind your back, so your reference variable might not even exist in the optimized code. Eg.

int x = 5;
int &y = x; // the compiler might just go "hey, this just points at x, I'll replace y with x wherever I see it"

>Returns are copies as well,

Note: NEVER return a reference or pointer to a non-static variable declared inside a function! That memory effectively disappears when the function returns. It might appear to work some of the time but it's a really terrible idea.

Under the hood, references may be compiled down to pointers. Also, you *can* take a pointer to a reference variable just fine (it will end up taking a pointer to the original reference, not a pointer to the local reference if that makes sense).

Also never return a reference or pointer to a local variable! This always ends poorly!!!

I know a few other languages like perl and python (but I know only enough of each to get by) among numerous web languages but I want to get more into developing computer games and programs (mainly for fun but it would be good if I can expand from web design/administration to other things).

For 2d games I would recommend looking at http://www.glfw.org/ and its tutorials.
Unless you want to go deeper then just use pure opengl and figure out how to capture user input in a meaningful way. And if using frameworks such as OpenGL is too high level then I guess you are left with software rendering (or developing your own hardware).
