/r/cscareerquestions is a cesspool

Icon 3 Comments
Programming communities come in two flavors: Q&A and message boards. Stackoverflow is an example of the former with Dream.In.Code the latter. Bytes, cprogramming, cplusplus, Daniweb, the list goes on and on. Then there's reddit. Forums for news, code, computer science, you name it. I find /r/programming...

The Shopping Bag as Issues List (A Fable)

Icon 1 Comments
Recently, e_i_pi discussed working for an organization that maintained issues list as a set of Sharepoint lists.

I wish I could say I was surprised by this, but it's all too common. An organization starts out thinking, well, we don't really need all that stuff, we can get away with writing them down on this old shopping bag, and...

Apologies

I am James Delorn Howland Jr. I do owe company apology because I accidentally ask the same question on my Straight Line Depreciation Table in Visual Basic program. The reason is because the tutor explaination in my opinion confused me real. I like to how many questions I could ask weekly. If I get a tutor to explain to me in a different way I...

I use this code to run the OPs client and server classes in a single JVM so that their debug output is in one console and relative times of events can easily be seen.

The Main Method Is a Conductor, Not a Member of the Orchestra

Icon 4 Comments
As many of you already know, I am a regular mentor on Dream.In.Code. With that I see common mistakes and design issues more than most people will probably ever seen in their full career. One design issue I would like to talk about today is the role of the main method and why it should be treated more like the conductor of an orchestra than 10...

5 Years

I have no hopes for the future. Once I was hopeful of it, 5 years ago when I got out of college, already working because I got hired before graduation. I thought I would just let my contract expire and be off to greener pastures.

Everything started out well. I was provided with great trainings school did not give me, and I felt I was prepared to...

Python is boring

Old readers would remember that yours truly used to be a Ruby programmer back in 2006 and moved to Perl somewhere in 2008 and stuck with the latter for a long time as my goto language. In 2005 I did some PHP, but let's not dig up ancient history. The past year or so I have spent learning and using Python...

Day 1 of python

I have always been interested in how computer run. How they execute commands and all of that. I finally decided to take a step further in my life by learning python. Day 1 was a bit intimidating, as I'm sure all other languages feel the same for beginers. Learned how to run python and also the
print("")
function as well as

Validation Of Dates.(No Math)

I've developed a method of validating the digit characters in a date. Using only simple parsing techniques.
  • No maths is involved
  • No creation of a DateTime object.
  • No converting of the character into integers.

This technique assumes that character are a least digits.

Murach's HTML5 and CSS3

I was asked to review Murach's HTML5 and CSS3 by Anne Bohem and Zac Ruvalcaba. The book assumes very little prior knowledge and does a good job of introducing HTML and CSS. It guides the reader all the way from installing an editor to uploading their site to a host. Along the way, the reader will also pick up responsive design, learn recipes...

I don't want to be the grammar police.

I realize that many of our members are not native English speakers. In these situations I do my best to work through hard-to-read posts trying to determine the intent of the message or description of the problem.

But its also important to point out that your written communication skills are vital for...

In one weeks time I have learned to respect the amount of information that is available to me online as well as sink my teeth into a few major-minor points of the computer world.
