#678502 Mathematical Concepts Useful for Programming

Posted by BlackRabbit on 22 March 2015 - 09:44 AM

I don't think you need Math knowledge beyond the basics for being a programmer. You do need general knowledge of mathematics as a tool to know when you need one Math concept into your program, then you can choose between deepen in that specific mater, or into translate formulas into algorithms, which is pretty much it. If you can read Math enough as for translating it to code, then you don't need the specific knowledge.

Of course if you are to program things derivative from Math, like encryption, well, the more you know the better.

Here's the song Vaielab dances at mornings as exercise.

He does the low pitched cry too, even at work, particularly after a client's call.

I don't know if you access to fresh fruits, but those can be uppers, also almonds are very good, they refresh your energy.


You can always clone yourself anyway.

#677933 Storytime: Plagiarism and Other Funny Student Fails

Posted by BlackRabbit on 14 February 2015 - 03:16 PM

Well, anybody heard of unscrupulous students asking in forums for other people to do their homework? :P

There's also the ones who pays for that, and the classic: getting a previous years' approved assignment  from someone else.


Since the invention of Copy and Paste cheating became cheap and easy. I don't think professors can always detect it, or that it could be totally avoided.

I've heard of programs that rewrites an article in a different way to bypass plagiarism detection, so... we are doomed.

In that case you might try learning from youtube tutorials like this one


Maybe audio and video works better for you, also, some of the books you read have its audiobook version too.

Which countries didn't post?

It's also a surprise to me that gamers are just 4%. I thought they were significantly more.


Great to read those statistics.

Welcome aboard!


If you want to learn, then you will. It's simple math. You exchange hours of reading and typing for the beautiful skill of programing.

#676510 How many hours do you code a day?

Posted by BlackRabbit on 25 November 2014 - 11:17 AM

I think the ideal is to code as much as you need. It will be 2 hours some day, 7 some other day. It's not like a calories diet you need to keep tabs with :P

#676386 Anyone not backing up?

Posted by BlackRabbit on 19 November 2014 - 09:15 AM

Just read a status update "Corrupt harddrive. 3 years of code gone"


What an awful way to learn a lesson! It's also strange that having coder friends nobody ever made a point about the importance of backing your stuff up.

Could you name the damages?

#675535 What happened to CC?

Posted by BlackRabbit on 14 October 2014 - 05:17 PM

Hah, yeah. Another possibility is Codecallers learning so much they have nothing to ask :D


But yes, last week was a low one, maybe it's because Kady is on temporary leave.

#675071 Britian and Code in Schools

Posted by BlackRabbit on 28 September 2014 - 12:55 AM

Maybe they will not be taught, but led to play. With the turtle I guess, It's very basic. In case you didn't see it, there's a turtle that moves or draws in the screen, and the kid "codes" like right 20, and the turtle moves 20 to right, and so on.

I wouldn't call it coding, but it's helpful to get the kids into the coding world.

#674916 The best country to live for software engineers - interesting rankings

Posted by BlackRabbit on 23 September 2014 - 03:59 PM

Welcome aboard Flam,


A very interesting report, but it lacks of important parameters such as Preferences! Like weather, native language, and no war danger :P

Seriously, I wouldn't move to places with such a harsh winter, or under crossfire. . .
