Just learning C++ and I'm trying to make a basic calculator. For some reason it won't provide an answer to the question.

#include "pch.h"
#include <iostream>
int getValue()
std::cout << "Enter a number.\n";
int x;
std::cin >> x;
return x;

char getOperator()
std::cout << "Enter an operator \n + for addition. \n - for subtraction. \n * for multiplication. \n / for division. \n";
char y;
std::cin >> y;
return y;

int answer(int x, char op, int z)
if (op = '+')
std::cout << x + z << '\n';
else if (op = '-')
std::cout << x - z << '\n';

They are just another classification algorithm. All the Machine Learning or Artificial Intelligence conversation around it is just hype. It's a complex statistics equation and not intelligence. We cannot really build a computer algorithm that matches the way a human neural network learns because we do not understand the human brain well enough to mimic it.

Google currently has the most advanced deep learning network and has no idea what to do with it, because network latency has not caught up with ANN technology, in other words we all have shit internet, because telecom monopolies essentially rule our countries and can just enjoy collecting fees for subpar service because there is nothing any of us can do about it without having a trillion dollars to bribe politicians with in order to deploy a modern network. Eventually this will change and then ANN/deep learning you will see some significant changes.

Imagine a hand held, wearable projecting or contact worn device that when you walk into a small restaurant in Hong Kong it can tell you everything that is going on the second you enter. For example, what language various tables are speaking, what conversation you can join and which one is private, what order is currently being prepared, etc. Translation can be instant so people with different languages will be able to easily communicate. Probabilities of danger can be calculated to warn the 'user' what's about to happen if they run across the street since the ANN has already learned their running speed. This is generally referred to as hyper reality https://youtu.be/YJg02ivYzSs

For that you'll probably have to use the Blueprint debugger. Try stepping through things and examining the values of each variable as they change and try to see what's going wrong. Look for values that do not match your expectations of what they should be.

Converting plaintext to runnable code

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
questDescription = Helo $player.fullName;. blah blah blah
questGiverId = (automatically set by system)

questGoals<String> (list):
[0] player.personalProperty.getBankData().getPrimaryAccount().balance == 100,000,000;

Rewards: gameSystems.events.pushEvent(Main_2.asset);

I think the plain-text structure will be the easy part. Almost all 'text-code' will be stored in lists where there is ONLY 'text-code'. One statement per element.
The exception to this, is in display text, where I would piggyback what I'm already having to do with 'get' statements denoted by $ and ended by ;

As for the functionality I need... That's what's lead me to this. Let's take a use-case from my game for example:

The game includes a (simplified) 'bank' system. This system keeps records and logs on transfers between players in the game. Perhaps a quest requires a player to transfer a certain amount to someone else... perhaps a quest RESULTS in a character transferring something to the player.
Either way, this occurring THROUGH the bank system is important.

There are a ton of systems throughout the game like this. I've considered writing a ton of custom listeners, a command-line system, a bunch of stuff. Nothing has the appeal of just being able to script:
"thisQuest.questGiver.initateBankTransfer(thisQuest.questOwner, 800,000)"
and stick it in a List<String> for when it's needed.

I get that what I'm asking sounds excessive here... but anything else I can think of feels like it will wind up being a spaghetti code clusterfuck. My big concern is the runtime overhead if a lot of these compilations go off at once.

Maybe a bit late, but I had a similar situation.

At the end I adopted a different approach using spidermonkey. It's the previous javascript evolution and has interfacing to native classes.
You build C++ classes that bridge your system and the js environment , and either run it as standalone or call it from your system to evaluate embedded strings.

The great advantage is that it is sandboxed and whatever you feed (even if it's ridden with syntax errors) it doesn't influence your quest system.

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 :)

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/

if concatenating webms actually works you can actually do

on windows
and cat *.webm > joined.webm
everywhere else

But then again I doubt it, this stuff used to work with oldtimey mpegs in the 90s. webms use vp8 iirc and I can't see how they would behave any differently than say h264 mp4s

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.
