I`ve been trying to make a project on unix, but yesterday I ran to a problem I just simply cannot solve.
I work on windows mostly and am Makefile noob.

I have everything installed up. But makefile yields: ".lib/arduino.a" no file or directory.
I figured out it must be some logical mistake in makefile; that it wants arduino.a before it is compiled.

Could anyone help me out?

If you read through the makefile and did everything you were told to do, one likely possibility is that you're using the wrong version of something. The makefile is copyrighted 2013, so look into that.

If you are tired of writing your Makefile by hand try out platformio.
It creates project files based on imported libraries via a few command line commands.

If you just use assignment instead of std::swap you'll override the left hand side but leave the right hand side as it is.
Be aware that using Pyramid Pyramid::change(float &side1, float &side2)
will just use the memory location of whatever you pass into that function, even it doesn't belong to the current instance of Pyramid.
This defeats the purpose of making it a method.

you could as well use
pyr.depth = pyr.height;
pyr.height = pyr.width;
pyr.width = pyr.depth;

for the same result.

Here you go, other posters were right. Doesn't appear to be JS, just a standard form and GET submit to the same PHP page/script.

In this case, you won't be able to get the code for the actual processing of the form, as the PHP is executed on the server before you see the results. It's not like JS where you can freely view the source in your dev tools.

I'm trying to make a missile commander game.
When you shoot your missile, it spawns at it's starting x/y and needs to move in a straight line towards the co-ordinate where the mouse was clicked.
How would I go about generating a list of the x/y coordinates between these two points in a straight line?
Thanks in advance.

given your starting point (x0, y0) and you mouse click point (xM, yM), you just take x percent of the starting point and (1 - x) percent of the ending point.

so a point 45% between your starting point and your mouse click would be (x, y) where:
x = (x0 * (1 - 0.45)) + (xM * 0.45);
y = (y0 * (1 - 0.45)) + (yM * 0.45);

depending how many points you need, just generate them in a loop.

>My work uses waterfall
I would place money on this not being the truth, unless you work in defence.
The name 'Waterfall' was conceived by someone writing a book/paper saying 'hey, look at this (mostly) hypothetical shit way of working, no one does this, we do other things'.

Pure waterfall means that if you find a bug after you shipped, then that bug will never be fixed. LOL2BAD SUX2BU.
Agile is a set of rules that almost no one 'working Agile™' follows to the letter, but the basic gist is, plan a short piece of the larger work, do it, review how it went, then repeat the next bit until you're done or run out of time/money.

SCRUM is a proscribed set of meetings that help you 'be Agile™'.
Both are management techniques that don't really need non-developers involved but junior project managers are now called scrum masters to make them feel better about their worthless existence.

I think I may have come to wrong board but I am looking for advice. I want to get into the sysadmin field I have experience with Hypervisors and setting up VMs and setting them up for automation. I am really confident in my skills in a enterprise and other mixed enviroment setting but I don't have any formal job experience and an my resume looks pretty dismal.

It seems like most employers want a degree in a crazy field to get a entry level position, I'll be going for an LPIC, Network+/CCNA/RS and CCNA DC cert in a few days. Any tips for a guy shooting for a sysadmin job or a data center tech?

Pretty much, and you don't need a degree for sysadmin tasks, and certs are only worth something if you ace them and get apply for a job over the institute where you're taking the test.
The public job offerings are from people who don't have anybody doing their IT inhouse who want to get away from a third party service contract. Avoid them.

Try to meet somebody who has the position you want and try to get them to ask around for you if they're hiring.

How do you deploy your python flask/django/whatever apps? by Cornelius Gopperford - Tue, 06 Dec 2016 11:57:07 EST ID:gEtE4wNA No.36353 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Right now, I spin up an EC2 instance, create a new user, install pip and virtualenvwrapper on it, make a virtualenv for my app, put environment variables in postactive, make an ssh key for the user, git push the code, pip install dependencies, create supervisord config file to run gunicorn in virtualenv (and celery or whatever if needed), configure nginx to forward gunicorn, then pray that I didn't forget a step.
I've been playing around with scripts and git hooks to automate some of the process, but I'm also looking around for existing deployment solutions.

Ideally I would just like to spin up a server from a template and be able to push the code up and get it up and running.

Heroku does this beautifully, but too expensive if you need more than a single hobby dyno.

How do you do it?

Definitely lots of options out there. I'm reading up on Salt right now, also Fabric.
I found this tutorial which is very similar to my deployment method, and the author links to a fab script to automate the process. https://github.com/realpython/flask-deploy

Looks like it gives you a lot of control over the process, since you're just writing a python script rather than filling out a config file. I've started using cookiecutter-flask for my latest project, so I might be able to include template supervisor/nginx/etc config files and a fab file in my project template.

I've been working from the mindset that I'm gonna need ssh access to the application user, so I was wondering how I would automatically generate a key-pair for it and copy the private key to my machine, since I won't have ssh access to it until I have the key.
But maybe I don't even need it, I'll always have a key for the admin user so I might just keep the git repo under admin's home and use the post-receive to set the work tree to app user's folder.

learn to use docker-compose, there probably is a ready made yaml file for flask,nginx,mysql, etc..
Has the advantage of being able to use the same tools in production and development, no need for virtualenv.
The only issue are unattended updates/updates in general but you can migrate that if you choose base images which are regulary updated and write your dockerfiles in a way that you can rebuild you images in production.

Do any of you have any tips in regards of how to learn DSP programming.
By that I don't mean architecture dependent idiosyncrasies or optimizations but learning to apply the theoretical stuff.
Things like
  • Digital Filters, IIR & FIR
  • Oversampling & anti-aliasing
  • Impulse Frequency domain transforms, FFT & co
  • Wavelets
  • Real time scheduling

Most of the theory out there seems to be written for people who have a math or engineering degree, or at least are working on one.
I don't mind if an algorithm is expressed via a formula if it's necessary but I'd like to see something where the math behind it is explained by example as well.

The counterfeit looking copies are international versions for markets where an $60-80 book cost is prohibitive. I paid $30 for one in school and was pretty happy considering I paid 80+ for about 4 books in a normal semester. It had cheaper paper and was not hard cover but that wasn't an issue for my use. Here's what I had

If you have an ebook version go with it. It's your decision whether or not a paper copy is worth the $20. The information is the same.

> 'Signals and Systems' seems to generally point to more interesting stuff than 'DSP'. ;)

It's a general book that is designed to give the reader an undergraduate level understanding of the subject in the title. It covers both continuous and discrete domains. It pays particular attention to linear time independent (LTI) systems because all kinds of neat things happen to make your life easier when you assume your system is LTI. All of the stuff in the OP is LTI. Not sure about wavelets but I think so. I haven't messed with them. If you understand that book you'll have a good foundation to build on in any application you want to get in to in signal processing. That's not to say you'll know everything you'll need to know but when you go to learn about a specific application you're going to need 90% of that book unless you're just copy and pasting stuff code or dropping in libraries.

>I do, although probably a bit rusty.

That's okay. You can review as you go but largely what you need is things like an integral is an area under a curve and a derivative is a rate of change. Your signals aren't usually going to be well defined mathematically but if you amplify a signal by 2 and then integrate it you should know the result is going to be twice the integral of the original.

So I'm working on a to do list app project with some friends. It's just going to be for pc, and it's just a personal project. We're thinking that it'll run from a web site.
I'm hoping you guys can point me towards the easiest way to do this for free. I figured we could just send stuff to something like dropbox or gmail, and then have the program retrieve the data from there? Is there any other online database that we could use for free, or would it be easier to just setup are own server? Also, is there any free service that would let us put up a page for the app, or would it just be easier to write a desktop program for the app?

Thanks for any help you guys can offer, we've never done anything like this before. Hope I've made what I'm asking about clear.

Use pythonanywhere.com, you get a free python web host+mysql database. Use flask and sqlalchemy to build your web backend and database stuff. There are tutorials on that stuff all around, enough to get you started. Flask comes with the jinja2 templating engine to make your html, add some javascript if you want things more interactive.
Ask questions for any specific problem you run into...
