  1. In Topic: HELP! implementation of API commands coded with Ruby

    Posted 29 Jan 2015

    Am I the only one who thinks this is sketchy we're helping someone on an interview for a job where they should already know how to solve these things?
  2. In Topic: Javascript Exploration: AngularJS

    Posted 24 Jan 2015

    Do I use it? Yes.

    The issue? Angular 2.0 just gave us all the bird and ran away cackling like a madman. I'm not to confident in the future of this framework unless something big happens to get them to not slap the angular name on a brand new framework that's more Durandal than Angular.


    That covers the gist of why you should consider frontend frameworks.

    I've had other professionals confide in me that they've made a switch to React as Angular doesn't scale well to large applications.
  3. In Topic: Fibonacci Ruby Sequence

    Posted 24 Jan 2015

    I won't answer this, as you obviously have not done your research. First, you don't understand the concept of Fibonacci numbers. Look it up, and the formula associated. This is normally considered to be a recursive problem.

    Do note that the forum rules are very clear that we will not do your homework for you. You need to prove that you've done some legwork here, and even a trivial google or forum search would answer what you're doing wrong here.
  4. In Topic: Something wrong with "rails g"

    You should consider using a virtual machine as a Linux dev server. Lets you avoid the limitations of Windows, without having to set up an actual Linux PC to work on.

    I've had good results using VirtualBox and Ubuntu Server in similar situations.
    (Not that the choice of distros should really matter much.)

    I'd just be very wary of Fedora, as it's Red Hat's beta playground from hell.

    Mint and Ubuntu (all variants) are good intro distros

    Something like Arch, Chakra, or CentOS would count for intermediates. FreeBSD would also fall around this camp

    Slackware and Gentoo are considered far more advanced (build your own Linux basically.) OpenBSD would also fall in this camp, just due to how paranoid the thing is.

    Note these are vague guidelines.

    So, I'll be at great pains and there is a point to install a Linux system only for Rails development? Is it so bad with Windows?

    Yes. A vast majority of Rails devs are Mac users (myself included.) Mac is descendant from FreeBSD, which is descendant from Unix. Linux is another good choice. Mint tends to be the friendliest distro to start with. Ubuntu is up there as well, but I'm not much a fan of it anymore.

    Haha... I'm trying to get into development but I'm having a rough time. q w q Definitely not for the weak hearted I'm noticing. I think I still want to focus more on drawing, but programming seems like a new medium I want to explore, you know? >:3 (Yeah, I'm one of those brats who suddenly wants to make games with no previous experience hur...) It's good that you still d...

    Just stalked and found your deviantArt (aka clicked "portfolio" out of curiosity)... Even though it's been a while since you've posted (I understand), there's some pretty neat stuff, I gotta say :D Just thought I'd drop by and say that.

    Good point. BTW, ran into Andrew this morning. First thing he said to me was "Sorry I haven't got back to your friend, busy week at work" Expect to hear from him.
