Learn Programming - 21 min 15 sec ago

Hey there. My question is... are there any online courses you all know of related to programming and computing that are actually worth something if I take the time to complete them. I am teaching myself Python right now but I have time to take some classes that don't cost much. Any ideas?

Python tuple, new takes 2 positional arguments but 3 were given

Learn Programming - 30 min 55 sec ago

Tuple is defined like this

tweetAndTime = collections.namedtuple('tweet','dateTime')

Data for the tuple is handled like this

for dataPoint in data: Strtime = dataPoint["timestamp"] tweetTime = datetime.datetime.strptime(Strtime, "%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S") tweetToBeStored = tweetAndTime(dataPoint,tweetTime) times.append(tweetToBeStored)

The error hits on tweetToBeStored assignment

"TypeError: __new__() takes 2 positional arguments but 3 were given"

I've seen this error pop up with object methods before, but not with tuple declaration. Any idea what's up? dataPoint is a tweet object with fields, tweetTime is a datetime object

functional vs imperative vs object oriented vs declarative?

Learn Programming - 40 min 29 sec ago

so, just a quick opinion question, a little note on the flexibility of python. what do you prefer in the STYLE of coding. now i know python is inherently object oriented but it is, as far as i know, a very flexible language to work in.

i personally have been following free online tutorials and such, and have mainly stuck to OOP, but upon reading i have expounded my knowledge and discovered there are more than one way to skin a cat. which are you?

with that being said, my question is... what is your personal preference when coding in python? functional vs imperative vs object oriented vs declarative?

Should I move to java or stick with python for now?

Learn Programming - 57 min ago

I'm a beginner, I learned python as a first language, I understand the while/ for loops, conditions, variable scope, classes/objects... ect but I don't really "feel" I learned how to actually program or took a strong grasp on the overall concept of programming, just construct some useful functions and small scripts. My main goal is to become an android app developer.

So, should I start learning java or go more in depth with python since I already started with it? The reason I'm asking is because I've read many advises to start off with python as a first language instead of Java cause it's a bit more confusing for a beginner, but when they say "start with python" do they mean to just learn the syntax? Sorry if this sound complicated and odd.

Need to make my program user friendly for my workplace.

Learn Programming - 1 hour 9 min ago

I created a program in python for my company, it's a basic program that reads a text file that we copy and paste from an excel spread-sheet, and then adds up numbers from the file. I have little experience with coding professionally. To be more clear, I know how to build a program correctly, but I want other employees to use my program. Some of the people who would be using the program have no more than a high school degree. I honestly expect them to get overwhelmed with seeing a big 1,000 line block of code, having to save text-files in the correct locations, and having to press f5 to run it. It sounds trivially easy to teach someone how to do these things, and admittedly, it is easy. But I find that people in the real world are not interested in learning anything that looks remotely difficult.

Is there any way I can run my program in a more user-friendly environment?

What math is necessary for someone interested in pursuing a career in Artificial Intelligence?

Learn Programming - 1 hour 13 min ago

I have always been fascinated by math, but have never put in the work necessary to understand it. I am going back to school to pursue a CS degree next semester and I am trying to get a jump on things so I can test out of some classes.

My dream would be working to push the boundaries of what is possible and create AGI, but anything in the field really fascinates me.

Right now I am set up to start learning Trig on Khan Academy, but then I realized I should probably check in with some smart people before potentially wasting my time.

I know I'll need stat, calc and phsyics but what should I learn before those? I am good with basic algebra, and I've managed to create some basic pathfinding algorithms with my little knowledge.

I'm basically just looking for a starting point.

Thanks for your time.

Question regarding Google Drive REST API and Powershell

Learn Programming - 1 hour 25 min ago

I'm writing a powershell script to upload csv files to my google drive. I tried two approached from Google's site.

  • Using the simple upload: The problem I'm having is the script uploads the file to my base drive folder. However it does so without any extensions and names it Untitled, and I cannot specify the folder I want to upload it in.

  • Using the multipart upload: I could not figure out how to give the file a directory path and the file it created got rid of the csv formatting and inserted all the values in a single line.

How do I do the multipart upload? Any help is appreciated. The code I used for the simple upload is:

$uploadrequest = Invoke-RestMethod -Method Post -Uri $GUploadUri -Headers $GUploadHeaders -InFile $File submitted by /u/nidschit

[Java] Simple palidrome method is returning false when one letter is capitalized, not entirely sure why?

Learn Programming - 1 hour 47 min ago
private static boolean isPalidrome(String word1) { String reversedWord = new StringBuilder(word1).reverse().toString().toLowerCase(); if(word1.equals(reversedWord)) { return true; } else { return false; } }

The above is code I wrote to check if a word is a palindrome. However it returns false, even after I convert it to lowercase. However it does work, but only if I convert the word to lowercase before passing it to the isPalidrome method, and removing the the lowercase conversion there.

I can only assume this has to do with how the string is stored in memory? But I don't fully understand why. If someone could explain why, I'd be very great full!
