Good documentation/books/online courses for a C# Unity beginner? I've got some basic experience in JS and most of the stuff i've read for unity fails to explain how anything works.

Today at work, in a code comment explaining the motivation for a design decision, I took a short jab at people calling themselves "webdevs" but who can't get right what I was doing. Fortunatelly, as I usually read and rethink what I write, I realized that was being a smug asshole so I removed that part of the comment and committed.

Tell me, /pr/, what's the worst thing you've written or seen someone else write in code comments?

I'm working on sourcewritingsource.h but I'm probably never going to get that working.

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 17/06/29(Thu)12:07 No. 5048

The main use for comments, imo, is not to make it obvious what the code is doing, but why it's doing it.

It helps readers follow along and see the logical steps being taken in code, and if you don't work on code for a while you might even forget your own code and how it worked back then..

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 17/07/10(Mon)18:18 No. 5052

That's the only reason I write comments, so 3 years later when it breaks on a Monday morning and I'm staring at it bleary-eyed without any coffee I can figure out what the hell is going on.

What is a better career option Computer science or Electrical engineering? anon 17/07/03(Mon)22:17 No. 5050 [Reply]

Computer science or electrical engineering. What should i study? What would be my job prospects in both fileds?.I live in Estonia so I`m in bad luck because we dont have a Sillicon valley here and there is very little manufacturing going on, so I guess i`d better choose something completely different(like healthcare or the army), but I really want to choose either CS or EE. I`m not chosing computer enginering because I think that it offers much less jobs than software development(especially web dev), while with EE i`m thinking that i could come in handy in a variety of places, not to mention I could just start out as a simple electrician with a degree(thus more qualified and more promising career). But i`m scared to take EE because it`s engineering and I`m afraid I will suck at it, because it`s kinda hard right? Also there are little engineering jobs here, but more front end web dev jobs(which I sincerely hate).
So please help decide my future because I do hae to make a decision fast and I dont want to fuck up my life. Thank you!

maybe you can use your programming skills to help develop and make these games better.

COBOL Neckbearded Basement Dweller 17/05/17(Wed)19:51 No. 5042 [Reply]

File 149504350023.jpg - (8.86KB , 300x108 , Cobol.jpg )

Hi. When I was in university I worked for a short time by using COBOL, I only learned how to read and write into a .txt file by using this language, and now I want to go deeper with that.
So I found an online lesson of this language and it is said that I have to download the IDE Net Express 5.1 before starting. But this IDE is free for only 30 days (and the link is dead, I didn't search a other link yet).

So my very simple question is :
Do you know a other good IDE for COBOL that is free or I have to get a cracked version of Net Express 5.1 ?

Thanks in advance for your respond.

C and Java

That's what they're gonna tell them and I just said it in less characters than you.

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 17/05/17(Wed)14:55 No. 5041

Processing is a fun way to learn Java.


Khan Academy has a JavaScript version with plenty of tutorials. JS is a shitty language but it'll probably help you get some of the basics.
