What do you code ?

Posted 28 July 2008 - 10:46 PM

In the event that you have nothing to code / write.

What small / quick programs do you write to keep yourself occupied?

Personally I write small programs that do simple tasks.

eg. Sort file types for archiving.
Sort files depending on their attributes.

What's your niche ?

Well, I'm just learning so I try things that'll teach me something. I just finished making like a mini Windows explorer, where you can search and open files from a list box.

Congratulations on completion.

thanks, but seriously it's nothing fancy and the guys on this site have be a huge help. I still have a loooooong way to go to get to anything near profficient. I've got a IT degree but truthfully its pretty useless when it comes down to serious coding. But it taught me the basic programming theory and the nice thing about .net is that you can do a lot while knowing a little :P

Well that's good to know.

I'm all self taught. Have coded in most languages that I've read about.

I do like VB.Net for how quickly you can turn out a program though.

I don't mind *cough cough* C# either lol

I'm a network administrator by 'trade' so in the off time I just write small programs, hence the post.

I write those small programs that no one ever seems to notice, that do the tedious work that no will ever recognizes until it's pointed out. But it does save me a lot of work.

well,my first knowledge for this language was from school ,we took lessons there but the teacher didn't have enought experience with this language and it seemed that he was learning with
but i liked that language and started to do my own things and try new things in that
so i was always asking for tutuorials and some codes from other forums and i got some help from some one
i was making some silly projects as making a button opens a link when pressing it,then i found that the same code can open an application
system.diagonestic.process.start("")
then i used the same code for opening applications and games and others,
then from one of the times i was asking for help,the guy gave me a tutorial from this site and then i started to learn more from this site and i learned how to use the timer and i made for my self a mini reminder
i type what i want it to remind me with and the day,hour and min,and press a label to hide the form,when the time comes,i get a message reminding me with the thing with a sound in the same time,the application is closed after that with 30 second to reduce the size of used memory
now i am learning how to make something as the outlook in a topic here
but i hope it will work then
and before that i was bored and found nothing to do with vb.net so i was looking for another language ,i started in java from netbeans and left it cuz it is as vb.net (vb.net needs the .netframework,java needs the JRE so i left both and i hope delphi also doesn't need something like that ,hey does delphi need something like that ?
and now i got delphi7

I audit my code when I'm bored, or I go to sleep.

I do the same thing as Tom9729, but it is unlikely for me to be bored, as I always have some kind of computer or programming related project going on...Am I the only person who get fun from writing code and guns?

Oh no Mikhail. You're not the only one that gets pleasure from coding.

It's just a lack of projects to code (quick ones) that I have.

Probably due to a lack of problems that need solving too :)

you must work alone in an office with no intended end users. Cause those suckers just breath problems.

I do the same thing as DeCompile; I just code small tasks. I don't work anywhere, so I don't have any big projects or anything.

If you can't think of an idea for a project, join an already existing one.

If you don't want to do that, go read some technical books until you get an idea. :)

Me too. I have a degree in programming, but they don't teach you enough to be really good.

When I don't know what to code, I come here and see what others are doing, try to answer questions and usually (okay always) someone else will answer the same question with a much better solution than mine.

But at least I'm learning.

I've found a site called Project Euler.

It contains a list of over 200 problems to be solved (have been previously solved though)

I have been using this site for 'inspiration' on what to code. They're pretty simple, but as they go on the math is pretty intense.

Maybe should start a learning to code thread based on these problems.

*Thoughts, thinking.....*
