I have a login to nubilefilms.com and am considering writing a quick scraper.

There is somewhere in the ballpark of 500GB of 1080p content plus loads of images.

Any interest?

Hello, I made and actually did all this (including the 'grad level' research electives, except for the coding theory book)
https://functionalcs.github.io/curriculum/

It's easier than it looks, it took me 3 years to do that. I did it about 3-4 hrs a day at first but then everything kind of snowballed and I finished it with only 1hr a day after the first year. These days I'm finishing The Art of Computer Programming series, I'm done up to book 4A and doing 4B draft at the same time. I just do it 20-30mins a day.

I cannot shill TAOCP enough, it totally changed me from amateur to professional computer scientist by just doing hundreds and hundreds of exercises. 20mins a day, for one year, it's all you need for the first book. Anyway, pick and choose what you want from this list and enjoy

I make money from cloning shopify apps, and I work P/T on https://turtle.ai/ though much more infrequently these days. I started out shilling myself on elance (now "upwork") as a jr developer and literally taking jobs from 3rd world countries for less than I would spend on lunch. I also work 2 days a week at my local university doing "ML" (statistics) for a cancer research lab making peanuts but it's research, and fun to do, and I don't need the money. The book in that above link, "Parallel and Sequential Algorithms" was directly responsible for the lab hiring me. Anyway anons I'm here to tell you to try this have a good day.

Also, if nobody remembers there was an MIT professor who had all his lectures shit canned from Open Courseware because he apparently tried to pick up some girl who emailed him. Because he was retired and had tenure, they couldn't do anything about it except kill his lectures.

This is why I started archiving things, because the personal behavior of a brilliant professor in this modern society leads to information just being deleted from the history timeline. It freaked me the fuck out, regardless how creepy this old man was, the act of just removing from the timeline his lectures (I was following at the time) was an incredible red pill. Soon all of us will be deleted from the timeline. Yes, everybody here, esp anybody who frequents the dark corners of the internet like 420chinz and wherever else. You will be deleted too. Gone from the timeline. Gone from history. Erased. http://news.mit.edu/2014/lewin-courses-removed-1208

I guarantee you Pythagoras broke all these rules too, if you've seen the MIT lectures on Discrete Mathematics, they persecuted a man who noticed that the square root of 2 was irrational, which was heresey at the time because all math was rational, so the Pythagorean sect had said man killed. This is the timeline we currently live, heresy to the political status quo means DEATH.

Goddammit, that's a real blow. I need build an archiving script fast. I know how to get the video URLS and stuff, but it's annoying to do it all manually. Well, just a little bit more c++ and I'll move to python, bash and stuff. Which should be all I need to write some quality archiving scripts.

I'm actually giving the C++ primer 5th edition a slightly higher grade since, even though cumbersome it does really teach you almost the the entirety of the language and things left out are mentioned and given some hints to build open them yourself (which is pretty easy once you understand all the terms are deep enough in. But again... it has problems and takes a really long time to finish. And I don't think it has any real value if you don't finish the majority of chapters properly. Besides some joke programs I wrote (which are great exercise to refresh all the things you've learned and improve a bit on it, )

This isn't really "programming" per say but I work as a requirements analyst. Business analyst. Systems analyst. What the fuck ever.

Holy fuck this job sucks, the advancement prospects just seems like more requirements work, which is glorified technical writing / secretary bitch work. Jira tickets, user stories, agile epics, scrums blah blah blah get your cert anon! Your CSM is gonna be so useful everyone will love you! Your generic "product owner" cert you have with 0 technical. Skills is gonna make. Employers wet!

Are business analysts even fucking relevant anymore?

The developers are the real powerhouses and do all the cool shit. I want to leave working in IT altogether and do something completely different

All I deal with are bullshit enterprise legacy systems with elementary XML/SQL/Java shit that's archaic as fuck. And I fucking hate coding, was never good at this shit.

Im 25, make 75k with a liberal arts degree in a high income city (sf/NYC etc.) so maybe yay... I guess? Inflation is a bitch.
How the fuck I manage to wake up every day for this shit is a marvel to me.

Don't waste your time on scraping and fiverr bullshit. Seriously. These sites are full of geniuses who can code so fast and well that they somehow manage to compete with all the indians working for 2 dollars an hour and still make a living wage. You are neither one of these things.

If an opportunity like that falls in your lap or pops up in Craigslist take it but don't give yourself cancer trying to compete for these entry level gigs. It will kill your desire to keep learning and you'd probably make more money working at mcdonalds.

However if you managed to make a scraping bot with zero experience you might actually have some talent and I suggest you start learning ASAP so that you can actually make good money from this.

It's a fraction and an exponent and usually a sign. It's kind of like scientific notation with the goal of sacrificing precision so you can load and operate on the numbers efficiently in hardware. FP is used pretty much everywhere except finance where the lack of precision will get you sued.

Well...kinda.

The IEEE754 floating-point standard that pretty much everyone uses was created with the goal of being able to re-use many per-existing hardware pieces, and you'll find that some of the integer hardware still works on it (equality, sign bits, zero, and addition, subtraction, less-than, and greater-than are all mostly compatible), however new hardware was required for it (such as hardware that handles floating point exceptions, denormal numbers, infinities and NaNs).

However, as it turns out different pieces of hardware handle floating point numbers differently. GPUs, for instance, get to follow most of the rules of the spec while ignoring some other rules that allow them to accelerate their hardware greatly while still remaining mostly compatible:

A floating point number is of course bits in memory.
The first bit is the sign bit. 0 means the number is negative, 1 means the number is positive. Note that this is the opposite from how negative integers are usually represented in binary (two's complement).

Next after the sign comes the exponent. it's either 8 or 11 bits long depending on if the floating point is a float or a double (32 or 64 bits in total).
This exponent is biased, which means there is an implicit value that is subtracted from the unsigned binary integer value the exponent has. For 32 bit floats the bias is IIRC -127, so an exponent of 00000001 (binary) is
-126, 10000000 binary is 1 etc. the exponent shouldn't have an exponent value of all 0s or 1s, those are for denoting special cases such as NaN, infinities and other stuff.

The last part is the significand. This is somewhat like your normal integer value: Each bit on the left means double the value of the bit on the right. The difference is that the leftmost bit means value 0.5, the next is 0.25 etc.
Also an implicit 1 is added (another bias if you will). Knowing some math you know that the significand value is always between 1 (included) and 2 (excluded).

Finally the value of the floating point number is
(-1)^sign * 2^exponent * significand.

The sign part is just mathematical notation "if sign is 1, then negative, otherwise positive". Remember the biases in exponent and significand.

What you think you want and what you actually want are two different things.

What you actually want is to set up Google Alerts. No programming required. As it should be.

Don’t fall for the trap thinking that you need to write code when you don’t.

I've studied IT and computer science. I have work experience under my belt, tech certifications, know multiple programming languages and frameworks and operating systems, have personal projects on GitHub, made websites for people, read tech books in my spare time, go to hackathons and networking events, etc. But it's so hard to keep up with all the industry changes.

Before I have a phone interview for next week, I have to learn a new programming language and a new web server platform. I also have to brush up on a different language I haven't really used in a while, and I also have to get familiar with a certain program I haven't used that much. I probably won't get the job. It's so exhausting to have to constantly learn new shit all the time. It'll always be like this, since tech is always changing.

How do you manage all of it?

I ended up in a part of the programming business that's not changing as rapidly.

Embedded, sort of. Depends on the industry but in general new developments can only occur as fast as the functionality built into the microcontrollers is changing.
There is still changes, rapid changes in comparison to other professions but you won't have to learn a new tool every month "just" every year.

There are other markets like the desktop business software and other things that depend on proprietary apis in finance and stuff. Those are pretty close knit though and if you don't already know somebody you won't get into that.
It's a dying market anyway.

Both come with one obvious caveat: In about a decade you won't find any existing application that doesn't involve some sort of Internet connectivity already because all the new shit people currently develop is built with that in mind.



On how to deal with it: Just suck it up.
You can of course tell your boss that you can only learn one new thing at once not several, but if you do that you will be using that one thing for the next 2 months. (And if you aren't bored out of your mind already, they will find new stuff for you to do with the thing you are presumably are now an "expert" on)
