(per the video description) From Los Angeles, you'd next see it in 2023. Which to me means that it isn't as rare as implied (unless it's like primes where there are some close ones and some far ones and the next next one would be hundreds of years later).
I did.....mostly because I probably won't watch it live. While neat from a rarity stance, it doesn't have much scientific relevance that I can think of. Cool, but the video is good enough for me.
I'd argue C# and then Java because the non-programming pieces are "pointy-clicky, draggy-droppy". Running your web based code in IIS doesn't take a lot of knowledge about how to get IIS up and running --- whereas trying to do the same with something like tomcat is a pain for someone who is already struggling to learn programming. [Plus, Visual Studio is a very developer-friendly IDE.]
Basically, remove all of the pain points so that they can focus on learning to code....... (for those of you who argue the using Microsoft products is enough of a pain point, it's easier for a noob than learning Linux because of the aforementioned pointy-clicky, draggy-droppy approach.....)
I was the kid that would do extraneous proofs in Geometry just so I could use those theorems later on in the test.
My (limited understanding) is no.....but fewer of them "clog the pipe" and make it to the other end (lower resistance values).
I disagree with your coder lock-in statement. But I agree with your "throw a dart" metaphor.
Just because you CAN code an algorithm in a language doesn't mean it's the best option. Just because I can drive a screw into a 2x4 with the heel of my shoe doesn't mean I should.
Languages are developed to make certain problem domains easier. If they are flexible enough, people will adopt them for other problem domains as well. If they aren't flexible enough, they might stick around in their problem domain, but they'll stay on the outskirts. That's it.
Very true. For "the common man" to know what direction to take, too many choices can be bad......especially when there is more similarity than differences and not enough experience to know which differences will be important to them in the future.
All of the reasons that you like Java are the very same reasons that I opt to feed my family coding in the various
But I firmly agree with the aspect of taking less money to do what you love; that's far more important than money. My worst day doing my current job is better than the best day at my previous job.
After Egypt might be a fun game.......sort of an RPG that reminds me of Wasteland......
My computer has a built in batter backup (it's a laptop). As long as my strip protects from the spikes, the actual outage is inconvenient more than anything else.
This is one of the reasons that I kill the Chrome task if I get anything even remotely fishy (phishy) looking popping up.
Turn around.....the congregation is over there. This is the choir. But preach on.
For those people, the experience on lower-end Windows Phone devices is usually better than the experience on lower-end Android devices......I suspect that's where MS will garner their greatest bump in marketshare.
An unlocked Lumia device for under $100 US ---- unsubsidized!!! And it's actually a decent phone for the money and doesn't suffer as much UI stutter as a knock-off Android device.
