Yeah that's cool and all, but as I see there is really only documentation for how to use javascript native libraries. Documentation on other targets seems lacking or even missing ( in case of java ).
I guess if you are doing pretty basic stuff in the backend so you can only use haxe libraries and your own code is fine.
But then I can't imagine the community for haxe is large enough to provide that.

All in all I don't see a benefit to the traditional workflow where you write the frontend and backend code yourself besides not requiring any premium ide package.

>Documentation on other targets seems lacking or even missing
Anyone can write a backend for Haxe, so some aren't as well documented. I've never found the documentation or support to be lacking thou, and I just crawl through source code if something isn't documented.

>I guess if you are doing pretty basic stuff in the backend so you can only use haxe libraries and your own code is fine
Not sure why you would assume that. I don't know how many libraries you normally use in a project, but I generally write most of my server code. The built in Java libraries are generally all I need.

>I don't see a benefit to the traditional workflow
Faster development? Macros? Pattern matching? Dynamic types and high order functions? Haxe has many improvements on its targets.

>besides not requiring any premium ide package
I'd avoid any language that needs an IDE. I rolled my own Emacs mode for haxe.

I try to avoid any software development library that doesn't provide a complete official documentation.
That said I see there is a MVC web framework for haxe which I would look into if it had documentation beyond the autogenerated API docs. http://ufront.net/

If you think software development is anything but 80% reading documentation and 20% writing code you are delusional imho.

I'm getting a small review done off my site (not very big or successful). It's made of angularJS, C# Web API and MS SQL Server (not very trendy). I'm being asked what the stack is.

Is it:

A: Bad for security reasons to tell them this.
B: Bad rep to admit it (since the cool kids don't use microsoft)

Thanks for any advice, really struggling with this one.

Hey guys,

I've never looked much into SQL, probably because I always heard it's easy which made me think it would bore me pretty quickly.

Yet it appears to be a must-known language so now might be the time for me to finally dwell into it.

Should I go for it, should I use MySQL? If not, what would you recommend?

I'm pretty clueless about that, even after a few Google searches.

Decomposing an n-ary relationship into binary relationships require us to introduce n-1 surrogate keys and 2n-2 foreign key constraints. That's just nuts, why would you want to do that?

I'm just checking if you get the relational model. In the RM, relationships map to columns in tables, so an n-ary relationship is represented by a table with n components.

I have no idea how LDAP works, but check out Andl for a recently developed database language.

I tend to use Go's embeds in other languages. Compose an instance of the derived class and inherit from it then just forward the necessary methods from the composed class. Feels more like actual building blocks than complicated type trees.

At that point you just declare a bunch of type aliases for relevant functions instead of instead of classes.
type FoodUnpacker = FoodBox => FoodIngredients
type FoodCooker = FoodIngredients => CookedFood

Or in java
class FoodUnpacker extends Function<FoodBox, FoodIngredients> {}
class FoodCooker extends Function<FoodIngredients, CookedFood> {}

Fairly legible and nimble there IMO.

You know how you download some source, and you have all these directories and header files and class files and this overwhelming complex system of files?

Well my school has taught me how to write short programs that consist of one file, but I want to start building a program and the problem is that I don't know where to begin as far as the design and architecture.

I have a vague idea of design patterns and general OO concepts, but I just don't know where to put what to start out. Is it possible that I could write out a whole function, only to have to re-write it when because I had to changed some other part of the overall design, you know?

So what do you guys recommend? How do you go about designing software?
It's a small CLI program, take inputs, work with files, do operations, print results, etc.

Let's consider a car as an analogy. A car is a quite complex machine that relies on many different components working in harmony together to function. If any one of the critical components of a car, say the breaks, or the transmission, or the differential, does out the whole car doesn't work. Each one of these components is quite complex on it's own, and probably consists of sever complex sub components. Each component is going to have it's own puzzles and quirks to figure out. You need to be able to focus on a component in isolation or else it will be nearly impossible to tell what's going wrong when you test the whole program. You need to be able to test and revise a given part of your machine/program to the point that you can more or less rely on it. Then you can fit it into the bigger machine and only consider how it fits in, not whether it's acting strangely. Now, of course, probably no code is absolutely perfect, and some of the more frustrating parts of programming is when something you assume is rock solid is fucking up in some non-obvious way, like a library you're depending on. But by unit testing we make coding manageable. Also, you're going to be working in groups. By unit testing you can present something to the wider team they feel confident they can use. Otherwise it's highly likely you'll be wasting people's time with you buggy code.

However, it sounds like something is fucked with you design. Why is there is big ass menu?

The trendy fucks here will tell you it's wrong, but have your commands/menu items inherit from a base class that registers itself with a list that gets build at runtime. Or have a command factory.

I was using scala code. T => R is a function that takes an argument of type T and returns type R. In Java 8 there is the java.util.function package and in that the equivalent classes would be Function<T, R>. There are many classes but they are all specific cases of Function<T, R> or Function<T1, T2, R>.

So in Java it would look something like this
Map<String, Function<Config, Result>> option_map =  new Map<String, Function<Config, Result>>;
option_map.put("Run", (Config c) -> someObject.run(c));
// add more options


then in your main function you could have something like:
Config config  =  //current state;
while (!config.doQuit) {
String user_input = //get user input

Take a look at factor
https://factorcode.org/

It's basically what you get if you write a forth to do everything that a lisp does.
It still uses parenthesis where it makes sense, like for literal arrays and such, but otherwise relies on RPN wherever possible.

As already mentioned forth really only uses rpn, but you end up with stack juggling for most applications.

tl;dr: how to find the point closest to the intersection in pic. The black dots are cartesian points from a list (or two). The circle can be a function, or also a list of points. I'm using python...

Amateur needing some programming for a thesis here.

I have a list of cartesian points (currently two lists, one for x, one for y, but I can do it differently ofc). These points describe a short path of a veichile, arond 10 meters, so it's a uncomplicated curve. I also have a list of points forming a circle derived from points from the aforementioned list(s) (derived means the circle center is not actually one of the points), and a constant radius.
I could also just use a function for the circle I guess.

I want to find the point closest to the intersection. Pic related

I don't know wtf %r is supposed to be, but you have the right idea. If this is all you're looking to do, here's one way a civilized person might write this:

solution = (float("inf"), None)

for point in point_list:
distance = math.hypot(center[0] - point[0], center[1] - point[1]) - radius

This just picks the point closest to the center and gives me the distance from the center + the radius
I want the closest point to the circle edge.

I've mucked about with it but am at a loss, so, if anyone, please.

Among other things I've tried this:
def get_min_distance(center, radius, point_list):
solution = (float("inf"), None)

for point in point_list:
distance = math.hypot(center[0] - point[0], center[1] - point[1])

It looks like >>35824 is pretty close, it just needs the absolute value of the distance
distance = abs(math.hypot(center[0] - point[0], center[1] - point[1]) - radius)

For the line distance < solution[0], solution is a list where the 0th element is the distance from the radius and and 1st element is the point itself

Is Unity any good for serious C# programming and learning?

I don't want to spend 20% of the time coding while the remaining 80% is fucking around with Unity's GUI. Coding a game sounds cool to me, but not if all the hard work's already been cut out. Then again, I don't feel like creating my own engine from scratch either. I hope there's a nice middle ground there.

I'd like to code in a fun environment and not one that could easily bore me, that's basically it.

Thanks!

If you mean you feel like you'll spend all your time in the unity editor instead of working in code, that's entirely dependent on what you do. Normally the problem is the opposite, is that kids think they can make a game entirely in the editor which leads to garbage and frustration.

But yeah. You'll have plenty of chance to work on code. I mean, it will be a lot of calls to unity libraries, but it'll be code. My wife went from some light scripting experience, to writing some decent code learning unity. It worked for her.

In case you come back;
yeah its fine to do it in the editor.
But maybe get yourself a professional IDE environment like Visual Studio.
This way you aren't just learning how to code but also learning the actual Layout of the IDE environments.
If you need to know how to code, Unity IDE is fine.
If you want to be professional about it, learn to code in the business standard IDE

I was away for a while so sorry for that, but thanks a lot for your replies. It's all noted. I would use VS for sure.

I really love programming and using algorithms way more than focusing on graphics and such, that's for sure. Hence why Unity put (and kinda still puts) me off a bit. I have to say I prefer C++ to C# too, to be honest. But I'm willing to learn.

Sometimes I wish graphics weren't that advanced these days. That doesn't facilitate things for me; making it enjoyable to play all the while making it look good. Any idea what kind of game I should aim for to avoid spending too much time on graphics? E.g. Platformers (although some still can get damn fancy).

Thanks and if you have more advice on that, that'd be awesome!
