  1. In Topic: [link] How Much C++ Do You Need to Know for a Job?

    Posted 27 May 2015

    If you start a C++ job - You're being hired as a developer. You should at least know what a reference is. Yeah, I'd be pissy too.
    If you start a C++ internship - then the sr. developer would have some responsibility to also be a mentor.

    I would expect that as a senior developer with a company you know if they take on interns. Having gone through the entire round of interviews just 6 months ago, two companies stressed that they take on interns and wanted to know how I felt about mentoring. I pointed them to my profile here <laugh>
  2. In Topic: Hackintosh in Hyper-V

    Posted 26 May 2015

    Let's clear up a couple terms:

    hackintosh generally refers to a PC with all the right hardware to run the MacOS natively. It tends to be a PC someone buys the right motherboard, a specific video card and so on... All meeting the requirements of the MacOS. The operating system is NOT running in a virtual machine. You commonly have to look around for some custom drivers and custom code to inject into the OS installer to make it work. But many people are eventually successful at building up a machine that thinks its a Macintosh.

    What you're talking about is a virtual machine. A program running within Windows that is its own little environment of a different operating system. Kind of like when you run a Windows Phone virtual machine on your PC so you can make Windows Phone software.

    The biggest problem with a Macintosh virtual machine is the lack of a true Quartz Extreme video card. Even when the OS is successful much of the software relies on the card. For example, you can run iPhoto to a point such as viewing thumbnails. But you can't actually edit the photos, view them in full screen, use the facial recognition etc. because all of that relies on the video card for acceleration and other features.

    Since you're just doing some basic iOS schooling I'd suggest you hit up eBay or your local facebook "for sale" page and find a small MacBook for a couple hundred dollars. I bought a MBP 13" with decent memory and small HDD for $300 a couple years ago. I didn't care about drive space since it was just going on my desk and could hook up to my server. I use it for iPhoto, iWeb and so on. A couple hundred bucks is well worth the aggravation; first in trying to get a gerry-rigged wanna-be environment set up, then in finding out how limited it is.

    So now you know you need to be searching "macintosh virtual machine" if you want to do it solely in software, and "hackintosh" if you want to buy or build a compatible machine.

    Thanks. To be fair to the site my vacation isn't solely due to maintenance issues. As Martyr2 said none of them are show stoppers. But I do agree with andrewsw that its an embarrassment that a site for coding doesn't seem to be able to do coding.

    I'm taking a vacation for personal reasons:
    • Its summer and my forest needs more of my time.
    • I have coding contracts coming up on deadline that need more of my time.
    • The 17th annual Klingon Feast is coming up and I need to build a new costume and props, which means my time.
    • The powers-that-be here are tired of putting up with my direct and frank comments and suggested some time away might straighten out {what they perceived to be} my attitude problem. Which I consider to be completely fair as I am a cranky Klingon hard-arse.

    So basically, I just have a lot more draws on my time in the real world.

    I use lambda exp day and night, first time I encounter a fluent pattern code. More related to Lynq then lambda, but I wanted to see the implementation and read about the subject more, anyhow, got it already, thanks !

    Dude, I'm sitting on nearly 6,000 positive reputation points as of this posting so one here or there really doesn't matter to me. But if you're the kind of person that is going to down rep someone for not being telepathic about exactly what you mean even when you type something this clearly I think you're going to piss off a lot of people and quickly find that nobody is willing to risk their standings on the site to help you.

    Am I just blind, or is there no link on a person's profile page to their blog? That's silly.

    Yep. They are coding on a "Whole 'nother level" above my last employer. Makes me feel like like I'm in the special slow learners group. But that's a nice side effect of new environments: They make you stretch past your comfort zone and learn new techniques.

    01aug13: I've changed employers and no longer working at home. So I won't be answering posts in real-time through out the work day. Don't take this as disinterest in the site. Its just I can't do that from a new office as a new employee. So its nights and weekends for me.

    I need to run through them and clean them up, stitch panoramas together etc. Shot about 700 frames. I'll keep maybe 50 at most. 10% or little less is about average.

    Back from vacation. I was away for nearly a month (if anyone noticed). But Alaska was beautiful.

    I had to laugh when I saw I was even on the "nicest member" list - Everyone knows I'm the brutally honest old man LOL.
