Don't confuse frankness with anger

Icon 2 Comments
I recently received an IP from someone that thought I was angry at them, just because I pointed out they hadn't so much as cracked open a book and made an effort to learn the ultra basics.

After writing a private reply I realized that many young people are not used to be spoken to frankly. They are unfamiliar with someone talking to them...

Shuttle gets a lift

Every so often there is a thread about "What do you do when you aren't coding?"

One of my hobbies is photography. Living outside Houston gave me the unique opportunity today to shoot the Space Shuttle Endeavor riding atop a 747, landing here on its way to California.

We see it a lot here: Graduates thinking that newly minted diploma is their golden ticket to wealth. They are confident they are going to start in a $200,000/year job and so on.

A friend of mine just sent me this and I think it is a good real-world reminder of what to expect.



I'm not saying that everyone can...

If what you really need is an explaination of the concepts of classes as the title suggests, maybe this will help:

Think of objects in coding just as you would objects in the real world.

A Dodge Ram is an object.
It is made up of smaller objects: Engine, doors, tires
Each of those is made up of smaller objects: Bolts, pistons, etc.

Example of not having the life skills to be a programmer

It doesn't matter if you have the intellect to be a coder if your ego is so frail that you can't take criticism.

There seem to be a lot of young people / rookie coders out there that have not yet really grown up. I think our society is breeding a generation of people that expect it to be the job of everyone else to blow rainbows and...

Stop and enjoy life

Adam made a good point in response to my "I Quit, I can't take it any more" post.

So I thought I would take a moment and relax. He's right that most coders don't see the sunshine enough. Luckily I do. So let me share a little with you.

First: This is my home. I'm a full time RV'er that works from home. So I live...

Programs do what you tell them to do, not what you wish they did. (Interpreting the client's instructions)

Its all about how you write your logic code. For example, doing what my wife said recently got me in trouble because I think like a programmer:

Wife: Honey, please go to the market and buy 1 carton of milk. If they have eggs, bring 6.

I came home with 6 cartons of milk.

Wife: Why on Earth did you buy 6 cartons of milk?
