I haven't had any formal programming experience, but I've been coding some visualization and analytics stuff for my department and everyone seems really impressed. There are hushed whispers that I'll be asked to do that full time and gtfo the lab finally. It's really a dream job for me, but tbh it's felt pretty easy so far. I enjoy doing it and do it just for fun outside of work. Is it actually gonna get hard at some point? Seems easy to impress people with little-to-no coding knowledge.

tldr: lab biologist making r/shiny applications for my department and possibly about to be offered a full time application developer role

You should probably learn how not to make a critical mistake when presenting data http://www.datasciencecourse.org/notes/visualization/ such as avoiding pie charts. The programming part is indeed very easy, the hard part is learning how to make a proper visualization for analysis. Get every rigorous book you can find on visualization for analysis and focus later on the programming aspect, which would entirely consist of writing more efficient code, making it more modular so you can update visualizations more easily, etc.

To people who don't know any code it seems like magic.
I'm still really early in my coding journey and am all self taught.
I realize I hardly know shit but every time I try to describe what I'm doing to people with no knowledge of this stuff or atleast a basic understanding of computer science, well I might as well be speaking another language.

Same. There's almost nothing I had in common with anyone anyways and then imagine trying to describe your latest trouble or victory... I have watched people's eyes GLAZE over like I saturated them with information, like they're staring into infinity. The alienation is only going to get worse too as you descend deeper and deeper into this little rabbit hole.

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?

Instead of creating a new thread for general bitching about work I'll add it to this one.
Web development is a clusterfuck, especially if you work for small business.
What sucks is fucking arbitrary deadlines for loosely defined features.
And you gonna work alone. Any crap they tell you about "team centered" is BS.

So you are expected to be a robot that never makes the "fatal" mistake of having to spend a day or two looking something up without also pushing commits.
I'm thinking about just not pushing my commits when I do them and instead giving them a trickle as so they get off my ass.

Yes, the arbitrary deadlines. "This is a simple feature, should take you a week at most". Then you realize the complexity involved of said simple update, and that it will involve refactoring a majority of the program itself, When I was slaving for those freelancer sites like Top Tal that's exactly what would happen and everybody would just push anyway to avoid scrutiny from mgt because you quickly learn, nobody cares, they have no interest in quality because the real money is in the user data they have accumulated. Do you have a million unique emails? I'll buy your service for X amount. I don't care if the spaghetti code is ready to self destruct we're only interested in your userbase and will shut down your entire site after purchase anyway.

Anyway if you hate webdev you should look around your area for what universities are hiring research programmers. They always need webdevs to write UIs for the post-doc's and everything is a grant, so you're set for certain period and can't get fired unless you really fuck up. At the same time you are networking with PhDs and professors, and they're giving you information, plus written letters of reference you can use to either attend a gradschool, or get another assignment at that university. You have the letter you're in before anybody else.

Selenium is good when you are working with things like Javascript which won't load if you use bs4 (assuming you are doing this in Python). Selenium will get pretty much everything unless an element is hidden (if someone knows how to scrape hidden elements I'd love to know). Assuming they have cloudflare security (anti-bot protection) you can use cloudscraper to get around it, but than again you won't be loading any Javascript. I'd start with bs4 with requests just because it's setup is fast.

Id be more concerned with them tracking account history. No amount of cookie clearing or proxies would hide it. If anything showing up in multiple locations on multiple ip's is more suspicious. I'd just rip a reasonable amount at a time something which is technically possible for a legit user.

>what are all the languages
No programmer ever knows them all.
As in, even heard their names. There just are so many. People make new ones all the time. Most never gain that much traction.
>which one should I start with from easiest to hardest
I'd recommend to use the resource https://www.htdp.org/2019-02-24/ to start with (but skip the "Prologue" section, it's actually a ruse to make you feel lost intentionally, simulating how other books teach programming). It uses a custom language for beginners made to teach better rather than be good for big projects / companies. My first attempts at programming never went anywhere because I never felt like I was actually learning to solve problems, rather like I was learning a load of curiosa without being shown the proper ways to use it. Because I was trying to learn C++ because that's what the big boys use.

Then after you've learned the basics, you would pick up a real world language based on what you actually want to do. The reason there are so many languages are that they are fit for different purposes. Working from home is probably more common with web development afaik.

But also seconding >>37811 , why programming?
It probably isn't the most straightforward or most sure way to reach your goal.
Also learning programming takes a lot of time and effort. Will you actually sit down and crunch or will you just switch tabs to some youtube vid as soon as things get challenging?

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.

Can anybody tell me why this is producing 0?

public class Debug2 {
public static void main(String[] args) {

//Producing zero because integer division of a smaller number by a larger number
//always results in zero.
int i = 9;
int j = 5 / 6 * i * 4 ;
System.out.println(j);

I marked it as producing a zero because integer division of a smaller number by a larger one always results in 0, but that's only part of the question. I'm supposed to solve it to produce the correct answer (30) in integer format, while leaving j as an int. I am completely lost...

Its integer arithmetic. "5/6" ->0 and zero times...

Move all the divides to the right: "5 * i * 4 / 6". Result will be rounded down

You also need to be aware of range checking:

" j = 5 * i * 4" -> " j / 5 / 4 = i"

(min(j)/ 5 / 4) <= i <= (max(j)/ 5 / 4)

(0x80000000 / 5 / 4) <= i <= (0x7fffffff / 5 / 4)

"-107374182 <= i <= 107374182 "

It's designed for people with zero programming background, covers CSS, HTML, the DOM/JS, some React, lot's of other things. Full lectures available. It's a workshop so you follow along with your javascript console open manipulating divs.

My only complaint is the lectures on socket.io and mongodb, stick with Postgresql and learn actual websockets for any real life application.

I know most people would just tell me to use online sources to teach myself to program because they're free but there is just something about a book that I find easier to learn from. I was wondering if if someone could give me a list of books that would take me from beginner to advanced in C#.

I was thinking about these books in this order.
1) Learn C# in One Day and Learn It Well. By Jamie Chan

2) Mastering C# (C Sharp Programming): A Step by Step Guide for the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced User by Michael B. White

3) C# in Depth by Jon Skeet

We used the Wrox book "C# for professionals" back when I took my CS education in the .NET 4.0 days... contrary to the name, it starts off pretty simplistic, but showed off some great tricks with Visual Studio also.

Back then, I bought the entire box with the aforementioned book, along with a programmer's reference and a few books with design guidelines... mainly because the box set only cost a little bit more than the book alone. Pretty decent books to have even now, whether for reading or for quick reference. I still use mine sometimes for reference in building new projects.

My tip for any language is to try to get hold of one or more programmer's refence books... They often have good "recipes" for certain types of projects and can help you analyze and dissect more advanced problems. They may also contain quick references for various libraries and commands and are really good for helping in designing programs from scratch.
Also, as mentioned, reference books can help you learn a few tricks in the IDE for autogenerating code, say, for database access.
