What is the best version of visual studio?

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 19/01/14(Mon)19:49 No. 5204

In my opinion, it depends on the language you work on. If you work with C#, C++, use the IDE. If you work with various languages other than those, such as Python, HTML, CSS, Java, etc, use Code.

Create a "Personality" Quiz with detailed results Neckbearded Basement Dweller 18/12/01(Sat)00:40 No. 5166 [Reply]

Hello, I need a website where I can create a personality kind of test where the participant can see the detailed result for all the categories (in % or points). All the websites I found show only the one you fit the most and not all possible results and how much your answers fit these. Can also be a Pie chart or bar graph. Thanks in advance

Sure. If you look at the image you can see different names with points listed. These are all the categories you can be sorted to. For every question you have been given more, less or none points to each category. In the end you can see how much you are associated to every category. It that would work on this internet site ( qfeast) thht would be great, BUT this view option vanishes when you take the test as a participant. I need a website where the participant can see all the options after taking the test. a view like this would be great, but a pie chart or something like in the opening post would be great too.

Why the fuck wont this run? it runs fine when i put in a number for the interval but not when i put in left or right input. they should just be numbers so whats the big deal?

SET serveroutput ON

ACCEPT leftLimitInput NUMBER PROMPT "Please enter the leftLimit in minutes: ";
ACCEPT rightLimitInput NUMBER PROMPT "Please enter the rightLimit in minutes: ";

leftLimit NUMBER;
rightLimit NUMBER;
leftLimit := &leftLimitInput;
rightLimit := &rightLimitInput;
SELECT flightno, fromAirport, toAirport, (arrives-depart) AS flightDuration FROM flights WHERE (arrives-depart) >= INTERVAL 'leftLimitInput' MINUTE AND (arrives-depart) <= INTERVAL 'rightLimitInput' MINUTE;

also this select statement doesnt work and i dont know why that is either. im trying to get it to display stuff from within the last 61 days and this should do it but it isnt.

select BT, BP, AD, DATE_FORMAT(publDate, '%m/%d/%Y'), PN from auth, book, publ where (publDate BETWEEN NOW() - INTERVAL 61 DAY AND NOW())

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 18/11/27(Tue)15:41 No. 5162

Just kidding about this select statement. It does work but there are no dates within the 61 days. That took me far too long to realize

Stories from Developer Hell Neckbearded Basement Dweller 18/11/01(Thu)19:20 No. 5151 [Reply]

Oh man, I’d never heard of hurd and because of a post on /b/ I went down the goddamn rabbit hole last night. Originally developed by a fucking Anglican friar who was kicked off the project and replaced by the head of the GNU Project Richard Stallman. And even though GNU has gone on to do cool shit, since the original goal was to develop a crowd-developed completely free operating system they can’t kill hurd since it’s the kernel, even though the damn thing has been in development since 1990. So hurd can’t be cancelled for ideological reasons and has been lumbering on as a zombie until today.

This story is amazing to me and I’d love to have more like it. So what are your stories, or stories you know of, that of developer hell? Projects far past their original due date, too vast or esoteric in scale to be practical, the craziest and weirdest shit that coding has to offer. Lay it on me /pr/ofessionals.

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 18/11/09(Fri)20:39 No. 5154

Hurd's got nothing on Xanadu.
Xanadu is basically HTML but with two-way multilevel links (you can link to documents, paragraphs, and words) and version control. It's been in development since the sixties and all there to show for it is a wholly unimpressive "demo" where you can click on a document and jump around.
I suspect it may actually be a low profile scam.


It's interesting how it somewhat parallels Hurd's history, though. Both projects wanted something revolutionary and ambitious, but their ambition made them make progress too slowly, and they were eventually overtaken by a less ambitious, more realistic project that achieved completion, success, and widespread popularity in a fraction of the time.

So, in other words, Duke Nukem Forever.

Yet amazingly even less interesting (or entertaining).

For right now it sounds like some nerd drama but overall something of little actual consequence. I hope I'm right and it's just a flash in the pan, because if it turns into a flamewar it could break one of the most productive communities out there.

Hey, I'm currently learning python too, the two best resources I know of that are available for free are w3 schools and codeacademy, they're both great for learning.

On another note, was wondering if anyone could give me a hand, I'm trying to make it so that the variables "name" "year" and "age" are logged in a text file, with a timestamp of when they where saved.

name = input("Please enter your name: ")
year = int(input("Please input the year that you were born: "))

age = 2018 - year

while age == 0:
x = int(input("Age is incorrect, please try again."))
age = 0

I've found the solution to this problem, for those wondering, it looks something like this:

with open("details.txt","a") as output:
output.write("Age: {} Name: {} Year: {} Timestamp: {}".format(age,name,year,datetime.datetime.now()))

This is tight. I honestly didn't know an answer to your request (though your original code was pretty fluid) how'd you find the answer? Lack of sleep and caffeine until 5pm like the rest of us?

Subject New Kernel Patch Submission Process

I am back from my break feeling _refreshed and ready_ to focus on kernel development again. 4.19 looks like an exciting release and includes more Spectre migration work for IBM power processors and a bunch of good stuff for 64-bit ARM.

Now that the CoC is in place our community finally knows how to act and communicate appropriately. However - I realized I have not done much to address how our development process *needs* to change.

Starting with 4.20 all changesets will be evaluated to ensure diversity in the kernel development process. I've extended git to support new author metadata, including ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity / expression and sexual orientation. I will be sharing my work on this soon.

Proposed kernel changesets will now be rated in IP (Inclusivity Points). Patches sent without author metadata will be rejected.

Subsystem maintainers will be required to calculate IP for changesets before submitting them upstream. They are tallied like this:

I want to learn C# and I was wondering if there are any good books on C#. I preferably want to download an e-book, so that I don't have to waste time on the Internet learning C#
I am a beginner in coding. So far, I have an electronic textbook on just C, but nothing else.
Help is greatly appreciated, thanks.
