#665992 [Python] - A very simple Palindrome checker

Posted by PBJ on 18 November 2013 - 05:51 PM


This is a nice little trick/exercise, as a result I attempted it in Java, and would be interested to see your one line solution. Here is one that I wrote, however; it is written in Java (however, should easily be translatable)

return isPalindrome = new StringBuilder(stringHere).reverse().toString().equals(stringHere);

Look forward to your response.

#662253 Religion

Posted by PBJ on 29 July 2013 - 06:59 PM


@PBJ well at the end of the day, religion ( organized or not ) is personal. Even if two people believe in the same religion, doesn't necessarily mean it will have the same affect on them.


I have to disagree, religion is not personal, however; beliefs most certainly are. There is a distinct difference, religion is the almost 'formulated' or 'organized' way in which to believe. Beliefs on the other-hand are the individualistic, senses of morale, generated by the respected person. However, I do agree, that no one is the same in terms of their beliefs, but this is not the result of religion. This is merely the result of the respective person's personal beliefs, and outlook on a particular doctrine (in this case religion).

I would definitely make those services clearly viewable, and easy to read I also wasn't aware that you had a team. In that case, I would create a tab with all of your employees, and within each one [employee] nclude: their skill set, individual clients that they worked with (specifying the work that they did), total experience in the field, other employers that they work/worked for, education history, and preferred area of expertise.Also, a nice feature that I would personally like to see on more freelancers websites, is a form of interactive contact. Maybe a live chat between, either yourself; or someone that works for you, and explaining anything the potential client may have a question with.

At first, I wouldn't charge nearly anything, because; you have no reputation. The first few clients are the most important, and any bit of experience will help you in building your portfolio. Once your reputation begins to grow, begin calculating a comfortable pricing for yourself, and one that won't bankrupt your client. There are a number of factors that go into pricing, such as: time to complete a specified project, the difficulty of that project, the type of client [is the client a big company, or some ma' and pa' shop, just starting out]. I would base pricing, most strongly off of the type of client. If the client was some big company, then I would have no moral obligation to help them, or give them any deal. I wouldn't care if they went bankrupt. However, a small business just starting I would provide them with a good deal, and something they can comfortably afford.

The most important thing is building your portfolio, so from the link you provided you should list your clients, and allow potential clients to see your handy work. Also, your page that you provided isn't exactly the most informative about the services that you provide. For example, how am I supposed to know that you design and/or develop websites? It's just a business card essentially minus the information about what you actually do. Therefore, I would take a step back; ask yourself what do you really want to offer? Also, step back, and look at your fellow freelancers websites and see what they are doing, and see what you should implement into your own skill set. Following, I have listed a number of freelancers websites that I really enjoy, and find informative:

Hope, my critique wasn't too harsh, and that you succeed in your quest.
