Seconded. I’m confident I grasp the basic logic of programming, but I couldn’t tell you what a double colon does. Apart from giving me more shit than I can handle.

Unity resources seem pretty light on explaining relation of raw language to the engine, and a lot seem to focus on getting you to parrot a bunch of alien lines of hysterically punctuated English.
Couple this with the with the begginner’s view on programming - looking from the outside in - it’s hard to figure out where to go to find those baby-step tutorials. You know, those ones that list all those functional rules upfront?

Stories from Developer Hell Neckbearded Basement Dweller 18/11/01(Thu)19:20 No. 5151 [Reply]

Oh man, I’d never heard of hurd and because of a post on /b/ I went down the goddamn rabbit hole last night. Originally developed by a fucking Anglican friar who was kicked off the project and replaced by the head of the GNU Project Richard Stallman. And even though GNU has gone on to do cool shit, since the original goal was to develop a crowd-developed completely free operating system they can’t kill hurd since it’s the kernel, even though the damn thing has been in development since 1990. So hurd can’t be cancelled for ideological reasons and has been lumbering on as a zombie until today.

This story is amazing to me and I’d love to have more like it. So what are your stories, or stories you know of, that of developer hell? Projects far past their original due date, too vast or esoteric in scale to be practical, the craziest and weirdest shit that coding has to offer. Lay it on me /pr/ofessionals.

Hurd's got nothing on Xanadu.
Xanadu is basically HTML but with two-way multilevel links (you can link to documents, paragraphs, and words) and version control. It's been in development since the sixties and all there to show for it is a wholly unimpressive "demo" where you can click on a document and jump around.
I suspect it may actually be a low profile scam.


It's interesting how it somewhat parallels Hurd's history, though. Both projects wanted something revolutionary and ambitious, but their ambition made them make progress too slowly, and they were eventually overtaken by a less ambitious, more realistic project that achieved completion, success, and widespread popularity in a fraction of the time.

So, in other words, Duke Nukem Forever.

Yet amazingly even less interesting (or entertaining).

For right now it sounds like some nerd drama but overall something of little actual consequence. I hope I'm right and it's just a flash in the pan, because if it turns into a flamewar it could break one of the most productive communities out there.

Hey, I'm currently learning python too, the two best resources I know of that are available for free are w3 schools and codeacademy, they're both great for learning.

On another note, was wondering if anyone could give me a hand, I'm trying to make it so that the variables "name" "year" and "age" are logged in a text file, with a timestamp of when they where saved.

name = input("Please enter your name: ")
year = int(input("Please input the year that you were born: "))

age = 2018 - year

while age == 0:
x = int(input("Age is incorrect, please try again."))
age = 0

I've found the solution to this problem, for those wondering, it looks something like this:

with open("details.txt","a") as output:
output.write("Age: {} Name: {} Year: {} Timestamp: {}".format(age,name,year,datetime.datetime.now()))

This is tight. I honestly didn't know an answer to your request (though your original code was pretty fluid) how'd you find the answer? Lack of sleep and caffeine until 5pm like the rest of us?

Subject New Kernel Patch Submission Process

I am back from my break feeling _refreshed and ready_ to focus on kernel development again. 4.19 looks like an exciting release and includes more Spectre migration work for IBM power processors and a bunch of good stuff for 64-bit ARM.

Now that the CoC is in place our community finally knows how to act and communicate appropriately. However - I realized I have not done much to address how our development process *needs* to change.

Starting with 4.20 all changesets will be evaluated to ensure diversity in the kernel development process. I've extended git to support new author metadata, including ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity / expression and sexual orientation. I will be sharing my work on this soon.

Proposed kernel changesets will now be rated in IP (Inclusivity Points). Patches sent without author metadata will be rejected.

Subsystem maintainers will be required to calculate IP for changesets before submitting them upstream. They are tallied like this:
