An app that e-mails people at a specific date.

Learn Programming - 2 hours 45 min ago

So I need to create an app that includes like 100 people and their payments to the specific company and if after the beginning of the month they still don't pay, an e-mail so be sent to them automatically, but to be filled with how much they owe and their respective name. I was thinking that if they pay, that would be introduced manually by the person. I don't know if it's possible or if it's really hard, but I need to know which tools should I use and what tutorials might help. The role of this app would be mainly to email someone in case their balance is in minus (as in - they owe). Also, how can I use a pre-made text in this case?

Learn Programming - 3 hours 5 min ago

So Im making a website for my star citizen organisation called Mithos and what I want is an effect where when you go to the site the title reads mithos but in greek letters. I then want that text to "decode" (cycle through other random characters before settling on the correct one) to the word mithos in english characters. If anyone knows how I can achieve this I would really appreciate the help! :D

Is Django knowledge pretty transferable to backend Javascript?

Learn Programming - 3 hours 17 min ago

I gave up on Javascript last year after being overwhelmed by ES6, Webpack, and trying front/back end at the same time. Now working on simple Python scripts it's been a joy and I'm confident I can get back into full stack javascript at some point (my goal is to be a web developer).

I have a couple options for when to transition back:

1) Get comfortable with OOP Python and then start working on a small OOP Javascript back end project with Express.

2) Learn Django first, do a project or 2, then try focusing on backend JS.

How valuable do you guys think that Django knowledge is? If it transfers well, I think it would benefit me to keep learning in a more intuitive sandbox (Python).

How do I see if there are two '8's in a row in a list?

Learn Programming - 3 hours 31 min ago

I am trying to write a program in python where the user inputs a list of numbers separated by commas, then a function receives the list and if there are two eights in a row it returns True. Otherwise it returns False.

I can get it to return false, but I do not get how I would check to see if there are two '8's in a row.

Here is my code:

Thank you.

(Going into college) Advice on the future?

Learn Programming - 3 hours 33 min ago

I'm a high school senior for clarification. Right now, I'm taking two programming classes: an elective teaching Java and a dual credit class that focuses mainly in C# and Unity.

The classes only went far enough to covered inheritance, polymorphism, arrays and all that jazz, but I want to learn more syntax/improve organization and efficiency. The last two only come with practice of course, but any suggestions for improving? Any resources I can use to learn?

Also, I'm also undecided about what I want to do once I get my degree. The classes I'm taking in class is fun and all, but obviously I need to understand more about computers than just crappy little programs and games.

I want to learn something more practical and challenging. Something with math or managing data. Major wise, I'd rather do CS than CE since I'm more keen on understanding how computers work than the electrical side of them. I'm unsure what jobs I'd be looking at in the future.

[Ruby] I don't understanding sorting.

Learn Programming - 3 hours 54 min ago
array = [1, 4, 6, 2, 5, 3] array.sort_by! {|i| i} array.reverse!.each {|item| puts item} numbers = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10] numbers.sort! do |num1, num2| num2 <=> num1 end print numbers print "\n" numbers.sort! do |num1, num2| num1 <=> num2 end print numbers

I don't understand what the sort_by method does. What is it sorting by? I don't know what it is doing. I also do not understant the <=> operator. I know if the the first item is less than the second item it returns -1, 0 if they are both equal, and 1 if the first item is greater than the second. I sorted an array of numbers there towards the end, but I am having trouble understanding how it works. An explination would be lovely.

Thank you!

Looking for advice on what stack to use for a website for someone in my situation

Learn Programming - 4 hours 37 min ago

I've got a background in computer science and programming but I haven't actually coded anything in over 10 years.

I'd like to create a custom-built website to help manage my medium-sized business.

My background: About 10 years ago I built a very similar project using ASP.Net and C# with MS Access Databases. I know (knew?) the very basics of JavaScript, CSS and HTML.

I will be coding on a windows 10 machine.

The website needs to be accessible from anywhere so it will not be on an intranet. So I need something for which I will easily be able to find an affordable hosting solution. (Open to suggestions for that too.)

Front End needs:

Preferably uses a decent GUI editor so I can save some time. A lot of forms. View/Delete/Update/Add data. Will need to support two languages. (Don't know how to do that yet) Needs to look decent both on a desktop and a mobile browser. (No idea how to best do that)

Back End:

Preferably, if that's not too archaic by now, I'd like to use C# again or something similar.


Although MS Access would need to be replaced with a more reliable database format. It would be very helpful if the new database format you'll recommend could be easily copy/pastable as a single file like Access can. I'm expecting about 3 databases, 20ish tables. Less than 100k records per table. 700ish users but only about 50 to 100 concurrent.

For this to make financial sense, I'd need to be able to finish within two months.

In this situation, what would you recommend for IDE, database, coding framework and/or hosting service? Suggestions? Thanks!

New GitHubers are welcomed in a fresh innovative story sharing project

Learn Programming - 5 hours 2 min ago

Hy everyone! I made a new GitHub repository and I am serious about the goals of this project. I just wanted to tell you that actually only me and my friend are working on a project but we would be really happy to see new contributors.

Anyway, the project is simple. It’s a story sharing website where a registered user can upload new short stories and others can write new threads for that story. For more info click here: or write me a message.

You cloud learn with others in this new project, it's a good choice for a begginer.

Thank you for reading this!

Having trouble figuring out how to create a deep copy of a list in Python without using the built in functions.

Learn Programming - 5 hours 9 min ago

I am having trouble trying to figure out where to start with my following instructions

• Do not use the Python copy module or any function in it! • You may assume that the list L contains either lists or immutable objects (strings, ints, floats, bools, etc.). This is also true of every sublist recursively. • However, lists may be nested arbitrarily deeply. That is, L may be a list of lists of lists of ... of lists to arbitrary depth! • The built-in type function might be helpful. The expression type(L) is list returns True if L is a list and False if it is not a list. (a) (10 points) We will use recursion to solve this problem. How can we break the problem up into simpler subproblems? That is, how can we express a deep copy of one list in terms of deep copies of simpler lists?

My main issue is just figuring out how I am going to go about creating a deep copy that also has recursion implemented inside of the function. Any help would be awesome!

How should I go about learning C++/Unreal?

Learn Programming - 5 hours 22 min ago

I am a complete beginner in the programming world, and I want to learn to program, specifically a game, from Unreal engine. However, it uses C++, and, albeit hard to learn (especially as a first language), I want to give it a try. Hopefully I don't get downvoted for that!

How should I go about doing this? Should I get a book and get the basics down from C++ and practice for X amount of time, then head to Unreal engine - or should I learn the inside outs of Unreal and learn C++ along the way (i.e. learn what NEEDS to be learned for the specific action I want to carry out for the engine and nothing else)?

Or maybe you have a suggestion that I should do before all of this, then please do say!
