#146518 Wrote this Code instead of studying let me know what you think I want to be a...

Posted by TheEmpty on 25 January 2016 - 08:21 PM


The 'isWon' method looks quite long, and you're manually checking a bunch of cases. Would it be possible to write it in a more concise way? Possibly using modulo? Likewise with your constructor and resetBoard methods - could you use a loop?

I so want to link my modulo solution, ugghhh. I love modulo! 


This looks like a 101 level course? With that in mind, I wouldn't care about 4 yet, you'll get there, but I wouldn't overload yourself now. I think in order of importance 2,1,3. But yeah all of Sephren's advice is good and I'm sure there are a lot of us here that are happy to help out a bit if you get stuck.

#145055 CMake

Posted by TheEmpty on 03 February 2015 - 12:01 PM

Anyone have experience with CMake? I wanted to make a project that can compile in XCode for my development, but for school it has to compile in Visual Studio as well. I don't want to manually deal with two different IDE projects.

edit: looking for a tutorial on how to get started. I don't see anything that shows how I should make the cmake file and generate the xcode project.

What if this is all part of Tom's plan to get us to be active again, by giving us something to talk about.

#144343 What's that cool new framework you are learning?

Posted by TheEmpty on 02 November 2014 - 04:24 PM

I want to learn Lift http://liftweb.net/or Play https://www.playframework.com/ both are Scala based web frameworks. Though I haven't really had the chance to look at either of them, been messing around with other random projects.

I bet those aren't the only things you're into, Mr. 420. WELCOME!

#142348 looking for advice :)

Yes, disregard college knowledge. It's really only good for basics and theory. Mot college courses are out of date because they have to be approved and they are written by someone that is no longer in the field. And avoid flash, yes.

Why do Java developers squint so much?


#140429 Fed up with website clients - what else can I do with my training?

Posted by TheEmpty on 12 December 2013 - 05:10 AM

Thanks to each and every one of you.  You have been so helpful.  I agree that I have been charging too little but have recently started getting tougher, charging more and have even let a client go whose site I had been really keen to do.  It would have given me much broader exposure but I decided not to do it because the person I would be dealing with was constantly changing appointments, took ages to answer emails etc.  I decided that person would be so difficult to deal with that the problems would outweigh the benefits I could see.

Right decision ;) I had someone like that, after the third re-schedule of our first meet, I told him, "don't think this is working out. We should go our own ways." He told a few people I was rude and cursed at him, but no one believed him lol. Oh and of course he said the classic, "I could have made you rich," but yeah, those people, it's like trying to run a business with a 10 yr old as CEO that is micro-managing you, but doesn't even have the will to micromange you.

#139042 Ghost - A Node.JS Blogging Framework

Posted by TheEmpty on 20 October 2013 - 11:30 PM



I don't know where to start! This is a really awesome framework that looks like its aim is to replace Wordpress (which is slow and clunky!). But I really love the editing! Markdown on the left, render view on the right. The main reason I don't blog anymore is because editing is such a huge pain in the ass. So much that I had generated a script to generate my MD files for WP but there were issues because of plugins. Just wanted to share this because I'm loving it™.

#137141 iOS app architecture

Posted by TheEmpty on 16 July 2013 - 01:28 PM

Two questions, the first is pretty easy, 


1. I was looking at this tutorial http://designthencode.com/scratch/ and they have a car example in their ios app.  Basically there is a car class and he mentions that if a car would be a convertible then you would use a sub class.  My question is why is that better as opposed to making a variable which stores something like convertible, coupe, suv ect?


Because a convertible behaves different than a basic car. So all cars have some,

function, but only convertibles have a
roof(true || false)

#136920 Free (was paid) apps

Posted by TheEmpty on 08 July 2013 - 06:19 AM

Awesome! The only app I had was Infinity Blade II. Also that article doesn't like them all, like the HD version of Tiny Wings. So here is a list of currently gone-free apps: http://appshopper.com/prices/free/
