If that's the case we should all go and learn Scada because of, you know, nuclear plants and that sort of stuff which are more important to me than a stupid car that can't drive in heavy rain.
Programming is only a tool to learn other concepts which are basics of the CS/Software Engineering curricula, like algorithms, data structures and much more stuff which are not programming. If what you want is to learn programming, study something else.
Wow, I mean, I don't even...
(make request ^action hello)
(request ^action hello)
(write |Hello World!| (crlf))
var a = "1";
var b = 1;
a + b;
Imagine the crapfest a complex application would mean.
P.S: For any JS fanboy, here's the Python way of handling this:
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'int' and 'str'
Not any more with lambdas:
button.setOnActionEvent(e -> doSomethingWith(e));
Mind commenting about TFA and saving your useless criticism for yourself?
Besides, I'm pretty sure the slashdot crowd builds their own rigs anyway.
So what? Because you're not interested it means everyone shouldn't be? Find something/somewhere else to hate.
When you search for jobs for developers, Java/.Net devs are in general better paid than the "cool" script-kiddies. There are also some C/C++ jobs but not as many. I've also seen a decline in RoR jobs lately, so there you go.
OTOH I've been developing software for the last 15 years using different languages/platforms and I don't see where all this hate for Java comes from. I mean, it's everywhere, it's free, it has great tools and libraries, lots of documentation and lots of people working on or with it and big names behind it. Name one language/platform that has all of this and we can have a talk.
Where's Step #3? WHERE'S IT?!? I can't continue without it?!?
Have this guy seen "normal people" use a computer? There are some people so uninterested in the thing (even when is their primary work tool) that they can't be bothered to learn so simple stuff as mouse dragging or keyboard shortcuts.
Hell, I've seen people using Spreadsheet software for 10 years without learning how to use formulas. Don't even try to show them what all that HTML gibberish is.
And Spreadsheet software is a pretty good introduction tool for programming.
I want a PipBoy damn it!
This was one of the best features I found when developing apps for FirefoxOS. Actually, you don't really need much of the FirefoxOS when doing the design job since the HTML/CSS will render with Firefox quite exactly as it would in any FirefoxOS phone.
Just think of all the people who depend on gas, from the moment it's pumped out of the ground, until it reaches the gas pump: refineries, transportation, station employees, etc. If you can recreate this with Hydrogen, you might make it easier for the industry to shift.
With electric cars, you destroy this whole industry from all angles. All those truck drivers, station employees, refinery workers. Hell, most of the roadside restaurants would probably go out of business.
But, any of today's thermal central pollutes less than the same amount of cars producing the same amount of energy, the cost of electric transportation is way less than moving all that energy in liquid form even accounting for the loss of power on the way. So, yes, electric cars are the way to go if we want to pollute less or if we start by making all those processes to generate & transport hydrogen cleaner, we can have the best of both worlds.
