  1. In Topic: Setting up a Remote SSH Server from Scratch

    Pretty much. How you run those programs and how you install the build environment depends on what you're compiling and how you have it set up at school I guess.

    Which distro you use isn't going to make much real difference as far as you can see, so I'd say go with Ubuntu since it's got the biggest community. I can't remember if it installs an SSH service by default but if not:
    sudo apt-get install openssh-server

    is all you need (the installation process is different on other distros).
    Putty will serve as an SSH client from your Windows machine though istr it does SSH keys in a maddeningly different way to the rest of the world - for simplicity I'd just go with the default authentication using username/password rather than adding an SSH key into the mix. If your local client machine was running a better OS I'd be recommending the opposite!

    Thanks, I will check out Ubuntu then since it is better documented.

    If you're looking for a temporary and free solution, you should check out AWS EC2 cloud. It's free for a year, and you can fully configure your server. You won't have a dedicated machine, but it's something to consider, especially if you want remote access from anywhere. SSH is already setup.

    I heard about this, but didn't know it was free, thank you very much I will look into it!

    I'd probably like to work right out of undergrad in a trading firm in wall street doing algorithmic trading

    So what is it you have against the US economy? What did it ever do to you?

    Hey stock trading is good for the economy, its those bankers that hurt the economy!

    Context maaaaaaan! No one knows where you live, what your local job market looks like, what you want to do, what you have an aptitude for, your willingness to relocate, if you are down for internships, or your interpersonal skills.

    This would, shockingly, be a better question for your school's councilors! You know - the ones in the thick and mix to really get in there good and deep to provide some quality tailored advice.

    Oh sorry! I'd be willing to work anywhere for a job around the US. I have pretty good interpersonal skills, but as far as what I want to do, I'd probably like to work right out of undergrad in a trading firm in wall street doing algorithmic trading, but after a few years of that I'd really like to start my own company.
  4. In Topic: Creating my first API, need input on outlining the process

    I'm still lost on the API part. How is what you are designing an Application Programming Interface? What are the inputs? What are the outputs? How is the call made? I'm sorry if it sounds like a stupid question. I just can't get past the API part, because nothing you've described so far has sounded like an API.

    Hmm, I thought it was like an API because it communicates with a website and then with software on a computer through one pythonic program.

    The inputs would be information submitted to a website which would probably be stored in a DB or file on the backend of the website. The output would be that same information being transferred to a program which runs on a computer.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    I'm not asking anyone to write my code for me, nor do I need anyone to design it for me. I already created the design, all I'm asking are a few questions that lead me to use the right tools to get this job done.

    For example, I ask how you can use Python on a website, using Django or web.py, what would be better for this task or if there is another solution altogether.

    Another example,

    "Also, how can I have Python communicate with an open source software, is it possible to make a python program to run another program written in C++ (the computing software is written in C++)?"

    Here I'm basically asking is it even possible to have one program run another program that are written in two diff languages? I have no idea whether its possible nor did anyone teach us something like this in school.
