Anyone have stupid experience with them?
They either bail on you and cancel the interview they set up, or they have almost no domain knowledge and try to match you with a position you’re not qualified for and not interested in.
This guy just tried to set me up for an interview with a job as a healthcare data analyst, where they use all this pharmacy-specific software and some other medical stuff I’ve never heard of. He just wants his commission so he’ll send over any candidate hoping eventually one works.
I’m not going to an hour-long interview where 5 minutes in we’ll realize we’re not a fit for each other. What the fuck, guy.

It's a pretty similar situation to technical recruiters in general, OP. The problem is that tech people are busy and don't have time to sit around doing high-level interviews or sorting through resumes or LinkedIn profiles all day long, so they hire recruiters to do it for them in the hopes that their recruiters will send them good candidates so that they only have to actually talk to the good ones.

Just be glad that they want you to interview there, it means that this recruiter thinks that you're one of the good ones :)

Hello, I made and actually did all this (including the 'grad level' research electives, except for the coding theory book)

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.

The way I found these courses was mainly due to research methods I learned in said courses, like the data scraping course where I'd archive the entire CMU or Stanford site then test what didn't require a login. Back then almost nothing required a login, the OS course, 15-122, ect were all open. Then I of course foolishly posted them and they all ended up paywalled. I try to keep the course list on the down low, posting to obscure chans to find people like myself but it gets posted to HN and wherever these days but I'd prefer it wasn't just so nobody notices people are getting free access ergo shutting it all down. When I scrape most universities these days it's almost all entirely Piazza links unfortunately which means paywall.

My recommendations to find more of these courses is just go through their course offerings that year and look up the course numbers/professor or TA names to get the course page. I sometimes used a search analysis service for this, like Ahrefs (note, they hire remote ocaml devs if interested) also github looking for public repositories where some student archived the labs and other assignments. I've also written a few professors and asked them to keep lectures open, or record lectures for the next semester to be posted on youtube. Can't do this anymore because of the Berkeley lawsuits where people sued the university claiming the free lectures they dumped as a public service weren't accessible enough and as a result hundreds of lectures disappeared off YouTube. To make a long post short, lawsuits basically prevent universities from just fully opening their courses. I always thought it was due to tuition grubbing but no it's lawsuits. I also follow professors now as they move around and check their webpages for classes or theoretical talks they give, like Ryan O'Donnel which is probably my favorite professor since he's opened most of his courses https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWnu2XymDtORV--qG2uG5eQ/playlists the Quantum Computing courses are very good btw, you're just learning the quantum information theory model and how to write a (randomized) algorithm that will run on a quantum architecture.

Since I'm here and never post, I'll talk some careless shit, primarily money, schemes, side projects.
Mainly because if you were me +/- 5 years ago you'd be broke and living off schemes like I used to, so let's talk schemes as everything is constantly evolving in the scheme space.
My strategy back then was simply clone a service, charge 1/2 as much, add twice as many features and then (don't tell anybody) deny service to that service. I didn't do it the 'illegal' way by pounding them with DoS traffic, I just discovered loops that wouldn't terminate, accomplishing the same outcome. This is straight from my original background in reading 2600 and hanging out in IRC all day, which is pretty much max cringe in current year. I'm assuming what I did wasn't illegal but who knows, anyway today is not yesterday, and this strategy won't work. So you want to make money now.

Again functional programming is your secret weapon. If you know say, OCaml, you can go on your local craigslist and just advertise that you can make the impossible realized. They want a combinatorial auction service? Message passing to shared-memory threads as a programming model for parallelism then solve the bids. Use google scholar for anything you want to make, somebody has already made it in theory, or they wrote a survey paper. Transact their paper into OCaml code and sell your MVP for scheme bucks like I used to do. The reason why I shill OCaml so much is not because I'm in love with it's syntax and shitty libraries but because it has at least some libraries (more than SML) and you get ML modules. The idea of modules is from abstract algebra, and from Alan Kay's orig idea of how OOP was supposed to be: message passing over a massive network of distributed servers all performing their own algebras. An algebra is a module, the official wikipedia definition being an algebra is a module, wherein you can also multiply two module elements. ML family languages are not like regular programming languages where you simply import a library and then get some kind of syntax abbreviation to access it's functions, it's an entirely different world where these modules can…

Holy shit, wow! Thank you so much. I think those meta skills rival the value of the resources themselves, personally. Good to know I'll pick it up as I go, that data scraping course (which I've been working through) has really amped up my internet power user game so I really had me wondering how you found this stuff, and your explanation is sort of what I roughly expected.

Out of curiosity, do these walls normally require student enrollment? Or can I just pay $5 to scrape a site, or something? I might be willing to pay a little bit for some of the courses you've described as lost to paywalls, but not anything over $20 really. I imagine the fee is more than what I'm willing to cough up anyway.

Nice anon, if you start a blog let us lesser beings know! You're writing is always extremely motivational.

>think about abstractions like this, how can you just remove everything and operate on a higher level.
Solid anecdote, I've had many similar thoughts and ideas since starting the curriculum, but I'm not quite productive enough yet to pump anything out quickly, but I'm trying. Though I have developed some really ugly programs for myself (mostly for some second hand good flipping, hopefully automating some service arbitrage soon too). I really cannot wait until I'm able to smoothly develop apps and SaaS products without breaking my back on a prototype.

>Everything I write these days is in this style now, or 'paradigm'.
That's awesome, I've just begun scratching the surface in with literate programming in emacs.

Thanks for taking the time, anon. Your presence over the last couple years has had a big impact on my programming skills, and, more importantly, the way I think. /cringe

Hey guys.
I'm making a little game in unity right now and I'm building the quest system.

I want to make this system open ended, as in a quest requirement could be anything from clicking a ui button to changing any property in the game.

My first thought was to make a " " simple " " parsing engine to detect my own processing tags (i.e. $player.name) and then build a crapload of utility functions to execute any possible command.

The problem is that this game is a simulation, with a HUGE array of possible commands, and a huge amount of granularity interfacing those commands with all the data classes.

Is it possible to convert plaintext to c# AND run it while the game is running?

Example quest:

questID = Tutorial_1
questTitle = Welcome to the game

Yes it's possible. No it's not easy. You can do runtime C# compilation quite easily, but converting plaintext to C# code is probably going to be a pain in the butt if you don't really strictly define how your "plaintext" is supposed to be structured and laid out. Additionally, you should spend some time to think about what functionality you really want/need and only include the minimal set for now to make things easier to get started.

It's too bad you don't have access to the courses but not the end of the world. Just always keep in mind that there are often big information-gaps when it comes to the beginner-level stuff.

Udemy might be a good resource for beginner level, I haven't tried it myself but their ads mention learning 'functions and variables' so high likelyhood they really get into the actual stuff you need to know to get started.

Look up the required courses of a game design program https://www.cs.cornell.edu/undergrad/minors/game-design-minor
Look up each course http://www.cs.cornell.edu/courses/cs3152/2019sp/lectures/index.php
See what books they're using, get the pdf from libgen.io http://www.cs.cornell.edu/courses/cs3152/2019sp/materials/text.php

Then repeat, like the Computer Graphics course http://www.cs.cornell.edu/courses/cs4620/2018fa/#schedule
The programming part is easy, just connecting together libraries after you design the game logic and visuals which are the hard parts. Something else you may want to look at is web assembly, it's just a minimal viable product right now so missing tons of things, but if you know C++ you can write in-browser games as a hobby. It will be a binary that's pushed to the client, and they run it client side, which means access to native graphics. Here are some bad examples, you can optimize this performance like not using s3 free tier for one https://www.webassemblygames.com/

I did a coding project for a college professor despite having no prior experience. It was for some pretty important work this dude needed help with to get published, so I'm over-confident and full of myself right now because of my babby's first programming script.

All I did was scrape information from some websites. Anyways, how can I make money from my obviously god-tier programming abilities? I need to ride this high of ignorance before I realize I don't know anything about programming.

The sad part is many projects are born out of somebody wants something like an existing software they have but change one thing. This is why 99% of all business centered apps are exactly the same or equivalent when it come to the datbase backend.

There are users, permissions, roles and then something akin to a product, something akin to an invoice and something akin to a payment.

Come to think of it somebody should invent something like zen coding but for sql statements.

It looks cute. It's a start. Classic web textboards/imageboards/foums can be great hobby projects for learning the essentials of making a HTTP-CRUD web application.

Don't worry about the layout so much. But do put a lot of thought into making your HTML structures logical and semantic. Not only does it make the DOM easier to reason about, but once you settle on a good document structure, writing CSS will become easier not having to worry about changing your selectors.
