if concatenating webms actually works you can actually do
copy /b *.webm joined.webm
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.

Topping out at 100k (lol) and taking my fat wife to Applebee's every other month is in my future.... Fuck this

Anyways, here's a motivational phrase that got me back into programming though I think i'm going to sign up for a programming class regardless instead of working and learning alone

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:
Jenny Fuckingcocke - Thu, 01 Nov 2018 03:05:45 EST E/AtBUMC No.37667 Reply
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.

So a

0 10000010 11010000000000000000000 would be

sign: positive
exponent: 128+2 -127 = 3
significand: 0.5 + 0.25 + 0.0625 = 0.8125

and the final value: 2^3 * 0.8125 = 6.5

Read the sicp. Use DrRacket in legacy mode (plt-r5rs) to run the exercises. You'll start off doing basic arithmetic and eventually write a virtual machine in scheme (which is basically diet lisp). At that point you will know more about programming than most CS undergrads.

And the book won't just teach you scheme. You'll learn most of the basic patterns for building complex programs and how to create analogous structures in any language.

I am currently reading a C# book which claims to teach good general programming but the format of the book is very slow. This might sound precocious but I am eager to jump into writing a functional app ASAP. I'm essentially trying to create my own day planner with task setting, tracking and completion.

I'm not looking for pointers towards this straight away, but which language is best to start in, and which exercises are most beneficial? Sorry if my neophyte garble annoyed anyone.

I've been using an electronic drum kit to my drums in Ableton Live, but Ableton's default drum rack, while still being the best for what I need, doesn't do everything I need it to. But all the other drum VSTs I can find are even farther away from what I need. The task seems to be bigger than the one friend I have who can program things so I'm wondering who I should ask. Where (IRL or online) and how would I go about finding a professional who could make a custom VST? And how much should I expect to have to pay? I can share more details on what I need if there's anyone who can answer this for me, or on the off chance that someone here would be interested in the task.

I am not an audio expert, so I can't really speak to the audio-specifics of your request. But from my brief research it looks like you need a VST plugin to be authored (probably a VST 2.0 plugin, since they are more compatible with more software than VST 1.0 or VST 3.0 plugins). Steinberg released the VST plugin specification so that people can author their own VST plugins, and also so that various sound and music tools can integrate VST plugins. Typically these plugins are authored in C++ (as on Windows they are basically just DLL files).

I think that if you want to find someone who can make your electronic drum kit do all the things you want it to do, that you'll probably have to talk with an audio engineer (who knows C++) and find out from them what they think it'll take. This will probably depend heavily upon what features you want it to have that you don't already have access to. I don't know what the going "rate" is for purchasing plugins generally, so I cannot assess a price.

I have a question about something not working in my coding. Normally in these situations this calls for throwing out some easy answers with a healthy dose of derision and scorn.

One: What must i do to convince you that i have tried my best to solve this before coming to you?

Two: I request someone to walk me through the solution to this problem like a parent dragging a young child through a busy city street. I have worked at this for so long, that i am starting to lose confidence i ever knew anything at all, and i consider it fully possible that i am missing something on the level of "Is the cord plugged in?"

Okay, here's the problem. I am learning openGL. I am using this website to do it: https://learnopengl.com/, i am currently walking through their 2D game tutorial shown here: https://learnopengl.com/In-Practice/2D-Game/Setting-up and i cannot, for the life of me, get glew to work.
I am on windows. I am using codeblocks. When i do everything i know should work, i get a shit load of undefined reference errors.


That says to me that i am somehow linking to the glew library wrong. But i have been trying fookin' EVERYTHING. Literal days. Possibly months, because this isn't the first time i've tried to tackle this - i think i gave up on codeblocks last time and just used visual studio, because for some reason that works easier - but i don't know why and that's terrible for learning.

When i DONT use glew, i can make openGL programs just fine. Hell, given how much time i've invested in this, and how it's likely that there is NO solution known to god or man, i'm probably better off just figuring out what the tutorial is trying to do and figure out how to translate it OUT of glew than get glew to work. But the fact that it SHOULD work and i can't get it to is making my brains leak out of my HEAD.

So if you believe me that i wouldn't be asking you if i could find a (WORKING)solution anywhere on google, or glew's support pages, or shit like that. Please please please tell me how to fucking do this.

You could try using the mingw compiler directly from the command-line to compile and link your code. Alternatively, you could try using Clang from the command-line to compile and link your code.

Both of these should work on Windows (provided you make sure to download the version of Clang that builds on Windows for Windows, as opposed to the version of Clang that builds on Windows for Linux).

What's the deal with C++ templates?
I'm looking for explanatory videos on it that is reasonably well produced
(not some enthusiastic dude rambling to a screen recording)

Doesn't have to be a video though if it's well written. All explanations I've found so far don't give me any reason of why to use them at all (instead for instance method overloading)

Some time I'd need to for instance loads of static data that I could define by hand but still would like to take advantage of encapsulating things that resemble state machines in classes.
I use C++ for microcontrollers, never on a PC and some times access to hardware can't be done inside a class the straight forward way, like storing pointers to a hardware pin, timer register, etc... inside anything non-static.
