I think Ada and Pascal are the most easily readable.
Programming is bimodal in the following way: People who think logically and people who don't. Among those who think logically there is a variation of skill from average to great. Among those who don't think logically there a a variation of skill from ineffective to destructive.
$5 Slashdot registrations?
I don't know too many kids setting up new community spaces, at least not the ones spending less than $5.
On the other hand, maybe this can serve as a new baseline for some of the mods to be updated (or redone) for the newer (1.8.4+) Minecraft versions, especially if most of the server owners update their servers to fix this exploit/bug.
If you "get" algebra then you don't need to memorise rules.
Perhaps but nevertheless, in class as I remember it, they instruct you to memorize rules such as the following: "Negative bee plus or minus the square root of bee squared minus four a cee all over two a."
This may be a pedagogical failing but it is the way classes were taught in my day. But that was a long time ago, maybe schooling has improved since then.
I've yet to see a person who hates, or doesn't get Algebra that could code at all.
I learned how to code a few years before I learned algebra. I even struggled with algebra at the beginning because of all the rules you have to memorize.
Those RT devices were probably the most underrated tablets ever. My mom has one and she loves the thing. Runs office, solitaire, and Netflix just fine. Granted, it can't run legacy x86 apps, but neither can iPad or Android.
It went from the NVIDIA Tegra 4 (surface 2), which is ARM based to Atom based (surface 3).
You must be thinking of the PRO line, which contains a full up "i series" processor (up to i7 if you want to fork over the $).
If history is any guide, people will just call them phones. PDA is too many syllables.
Requiring steam is requiring a separate application that must be let online, that tracks your usage and purchases, and that is everything evil about "always online" except the relatively minor inconvenience of actually being required to connect.
You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
What about surgeons? Should they operate on their own time? Or police officers, should they go around arresting criminals on their own time? Dentists should pull teeth on their own time? Maybe managers should go to meetings on their own time. All of these people can love their jobs and not do them on their own time.
Good point. If someone writes mountains of code on their own time then I won't have to pay them much to write code for me since they were going to do it for free anyway. You like to code, and this $2000 per month will more than cover your rent. This looks like a win-win for both of us! Just sign here...
If you're picking from scratch, check out Ada 2012. It has all of the power of C++ but it is a "safer" language designed to produce more reliable software (i.e. the kind that can be used in bullet trains and airplanes). While aerospace and defense are its reasons for existence, you can produce high quality desktop software as well.
Every little bit helps I guess. Which area is that?
