stateless
so 3-4 hours to find them
retard
the questions i got on my interview were interesting to me
__20h__
There's no »programming school«.
atmc
we learned C and C++ using only classes without the iterator/template sh*t
__20h__
Universties teach computer science, not programming.
stateless
and i agree with that
__20h__
Programming is sports.
stateless
__20h__, this is the best case scenario though
in the uk it is not like in germany
k0ga
__20h__: they don't teach anything
retard
the "test" portion of an interview is far better conducted as a conversation
imo
__20h__
That's why I studied medicine.
stateless
retard, same
__20h__
;)
gstk
Evil_Bob, Some school teach C++ from the beginning :/
*teaches
stateless
__20h__, if i knew and wasn't clueless, i would have studied either medicine or physics
retard
to make sure they have the grasp of concepts and are able to reason creatively around them
stateless
retard, the kind of interviews i do these days are pretty much pointless
Evil_Bob
gstk: C/C++ was my first language at CS fortunately, it was a good introduction. second year was java though |
stateless
ok it looks bad if you do not know what static is in C
retard
hacker mentality is what you really want
stateless
but really, they are good enough to filter out the complete clueless people
they do not give you any indication of someone who is awesome
atmc
have you read the article from the yahoo lisp guy?
stateless
yeah
retard
i've been talking to normie friends about updating my resume
__20h__
The »hacker mentality« is just one kind of personality that needs to be found and filtered for the best of humanity.
You can find it in different professions.
retard
definitely
stateless
sure
retard
it is not about computers
atmc
where he mentions that he only feared companies which had this "hacker mentality" and not industry driven "everything must be written with C++, BOOST and ACE"
Evil_Bob
stateless: i suck at interviews myself, too introvert IRL i think
stateless
__20h__, i could have become proficient in everything, when i was young i thought only computers mattered
retard
it's about a passion and an interest that drives you to become an expert
stateless
then i realized that most stuff out there are totally interesting
retard
the reason i wound up with computers was that was the only thing school didn't make boring to me
__20h__
stateless, for the sake of suckless and your life purpose never learn anything else.
stateless
now it is a long and lonesome road
__20h__
stateless, fu*k, we are here.
Are you alone on this channel?
retard
i was super interested in a broad set of topics, but school just sat me down, gave me a book and told me to follow along
__20h__
Look, we even integrated a retard.
retard
i read ahead, they got mad
stateless
__20h__, yeah ok but we are still finite
retard
because i wasn't "paying attention"
stateless
:P
__20h__
stateless, yes, make humans infinite.
Evil_Bob
retard: same, i kinda hate school, the LAN parties were fun though :)
__20h__
retard, well, I asked too critical questions about the books.
atmc
__20h__: you're the med guy, coding steroids pls.
stateless
i was at the bottom of the class in school
i was barely progressing to the next year
gstk
Evil_Bob, There were LAN parties at your school ? Seems like a great school to me
__20h__
My main topic was and is now to get all people into a revolution.
stateless
greek schools were a lot more fun than whatever you guys have experienced
__20h__
My school was boring. They just smoked cannabis and got drunk all day.
stateless
before christmas and easter, we would close the school down for 2 weeks, objecting that the cheese pies where round and not square, we would mount desks at the gates and even hire body guards for the night so we could go out
retard
anyway yeah updating my resume, and since i don't have much in the way of formal schooling i have way too much sh*t to put on there
__20h__
No gangbangs or sex parties.
retard
because i've done way too much with different technologies
gstk
The closest fun I had was in a word quiz related to computers
__20h__
That's why I got to lurk on IRC.
retard
so normies are appalled at my resume because it's too fu*king huge
Evil_Bob
stateless: lool
retard
"HR-people will never read something that looks like this!"
stateless
__20h__, yeah u don't need to be nice on irc
gstk
Where people answer words like "Right Click"
stateless
that's what i love about it
:P
__20h__
stateless, exactly.
retard
but i kind of have to list technologies that i know, because otherwise i don't have any qualifications
__20h__
retard, how did you become a retard?
retard
__20h__ do you want the actual origins of my nick
__20h__
retard, yes.
stateless
tell them you debugged an issue that involved m4
i would hire u
retard
time-release medicine
hahaha ffffuuuck m4
__20h__
stateless, I debugged it by writing my own sendmail configuration.
stateless
hahaha
atmc
holy sh*t he wrote a sendmail config
stateless
retard, ppl tried to fix m4
and came up with cmake
k0ga
m4 was not intended to be a build system
Evil_Bob
__20h__: http://www.linusakesson.net/programming/sendmail/index.php
k0ga
m4 has some good uses, but not build configuration
stateless
k0ga, as far as i can tell, neither was cmake
lol
atmc
L:D
k0ga
I know ppl that use m4 for expand macro abilities when the program in assembler
s/the/they/
retard
the thing that took me the longest to grasp of the stuff i know about computers is OO
__20h__
M4 should be used on the web as a macro language for Javascript.
retard
OO is just .. so far removed from actual computing
__20h__
Asynchronous Javascript and M4  AJAM4
stateless
m4 would suit webassembler
or whatever that is called
