I made background generation from perlin noise!
It doesn't look as good as expected though, stars look stretched out, i want them round.
Got any advice?

#programming #rust

Is Rust good for application development? It is a system language so it introduces some mental overhead with resource management. Does it make sense for apps many of which do a little bit of domain logic and drawing on screen?
If we want to have solid foundations, we should start doing it I guess

@raichoo I’m sure both #Ada and #Haskell are at the forefront of strong typing

@raichoo you are right. Again :D

Well, I moved from #programming full-time to running a company. It certainly doesn't help :)

So, pondering a few of the things that macros in #programming are actually really super useful for:

* Solving special-case problems that are much harder to solve in the general case (Rust's `println!` vs. variable-length dynamically-typed function arguments w/o allocation)
* Prototyping syntax extensions without needing to get the compiler involved (Rust's `try!`)
* Compile-time metaprogramming to extend types without runtime codegen (Rust's derive's)

We need to stop using the term "magic" for things in #programming . It's not magic, it's h*cking engineering.

Finally: 'master/slave' terminology removed from Python #programming #language. May appear superficial to some, but signals like this entrenched in tech culture contribute to exclusionary environments.

‘Master/Slave’ Terminology Was Removed from Python Programming Language

The terminology has been a point of contention in the tech community for nearly two decades and now it was just removed from one of the most popular programming languages in the world.

#Python has such a good, friendly learning community. All the courses are always so upbeat, most of the courses and materials are free and high-quality (and lots are creative commons so remixable), and it makes me happy seeing Guido von Rossum taking part in almost every single course and book.

Feeling inadequate as a software developer
I have been reading this blog post by Sean Werkema over and over. I'm ashamed to admit that even after 16 years studying then working and hobbying in software development, I'm not sure about the answer to any question in the list.

I have never considered myself like a good programmer, but this consideration (or lack thereof) was easier to justify when I was younger. After about 12 years in the business, working only with a couple programming languages, I'm not sure what I have to show for it.

In particular, I feel like I'm missing a lot of theoretical knowledge, meta programming concepts and even specific knowledge about PHP, the programming language I have been using constantly, whether at work or in my spare time over the last decade and more. And for a good reason: I hate researching, I prefer just doing. Which means that I have to know what to do, which may come faster to me than how to do it the good way.

The problem I see is that as I grow older in my software development career, I feel like people's expectations about what I can deliver based on my seniority will move away from what I can actually deliver based on what I want or like doing. I'm already scared by the job offers I'm getting on LinkedIn just from recruiter's assumptions. I don't feel like I fit the job description they are pulling just from my current title ("Senior Backend Software Engineer").

The following problem is that I have no intention of doing anything specific about it. Theory bores me when it doesn't just puzzles me, and I'm not sure I would like to threaten the comfortable position I have at my job even if it was possible. To be clear I don't feel like I'm not producing value for my employer, I'm just saying they could have hired someone better than me with equivalent seniority. It may have cost them more money though, so maybe I'll always by the guy who fills the role in companies that have mild expectations of software quality and pay accordingly.

What about you? Can you answer with confidence any question in the blog post? https://www.werkema.com/2018/01/04/pop-quiz/ #development #programming #angst

so I have a date and time returned being returned in this format:

2018-08-19T17:32:18Z

I need to convert the date and time to epoch time with Python 3

Can anyone help me with this or point me in the right direction?

(I did some searching and was able to figure out the date conversion but not the time)

TL;DR I'm no longer working full time, so I'll be posting a lot more content in the coming months. I'm also starting my junior year in college, and I redid my website: https://leotindall.com

It works much better with accessibility devices now, and is easier on the eyes. There's tons of great content there, go take a peek if you're into #OpenSource, #FOSS, #FreeSoftware, #programming, #CompSci, #math, #hacking, #ReverseEngineering / #re, or #RetroHardware

Official Post from Leoλ: I'm done with my CancerIQ internship!That means I'm no longer working full-time. I'm about to take a flight back home to San Diego and spend a week there before heading to Beloit, Wisconsin for my junior year of college. What this means for my loyal patrons is this: I'll be spending a lot more time
