Should I start learning computer science by myself or should I take a class at a local community college?

Learn Programming - 3 hours 9 min ago

I get basically one free class a semester because of my scholarship, and I've been interested in computers ever since I was a kid. However, when I took a computer science class in high school (they taught Java) I struggled. Now, I want to see if i should go back to it to see if I like it. The college offers intro to computer science c++/Java. Do you guys think I should start teaching myself or should I utilize this free class I can take?

Text Blocks 0.9.2 - Compose e-mails and documents from text blocks (beta).

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 3 hours 17 min ago

Text Blocks lets you compose e-mails and documents from frequently used text blocks. Text Blocks is built around search - there are no abbreviations to memorize. Name and email address of the person you are replying to are detected automatically, and can be used to personalize the greeting in your templates. You can use form fields to further customize your text blocks. Once you’re done replying to an email, you can have the app schedule a reminder to follow up with somebody or add their contact details to a spreadsheet (great for keeping track of potential customers, contact lists, feature requests, bug reports, etc.).

  • Speedier email replies:
    • Save your most frequent replies as text blocks and reuse them
    • Personalize your text blocks with form fields
    • Use tags to organize your text blocks
  • Apple Mail integration:
    • Name and email address of the person you’re replying to are detected automatically
    • Automatically personalize the greeting in your messages with the correct name
  • Workflow integration:
    • Have the app schedule a reminder after replying to follow up with somebody later
    • Automatically save the contact details of whom you’re replying to in a spreadsheet
    • Keep unrelated text blocks in separate documents (e.g., one set of text blocks per project)

Version 0.9.2:
  • New: use a menu bar icon instead of the dock (enable via Text Blocks → Preferences…)

  • macOS 10.12.6 or later

Best way to sell any software as coder.

Learn Programming - 3 hours 18 min ago

I worked as freelancer for more than 4 years. Am living from that, but has been some time that i dont want to keep working for clients.

Currently am just thinking on big projects, big softwares, just important ones and with a purpose. Not just creating, scrapers, simple softwares, etc.

I want to work on my own projects that i've got in mind. So, i started to build an store to promote my softwares. (They are very good...... Or its because i coded it.), mostly for SEO & Social Networks Services.

Assuming that you're understanding all of this simple story for most but hard for me.

I wanted to know if anyone has succesfully build an store to promote your wn softwares and if you can give me an example how did you promote your store from scratch? Or what service did you use to boost your sales?

Thanks in advanced.

Practice Recursion in Java/Python

Learn Programming - 3 hours 19 min ago

This website has been a thing for a long time, but there’s only been 3 posts from 2+ years ago that barely mention it.

It offers a goal to reach through recursion without using multiplication or loops. It has an IED/Compiler built in and organizes the output of each recursive iteration nearly on a graph and displays what you want to output, and what you’re currently outputting.

CodingBat Recursion

I have not looked to see what else the site offers but I’d imagine more than just Recursion.

CLI only Debian VM

Command Line - 3 hours 41 min ago

I want to see just how far I can push my everyday computer use into the command line. I'm not a total noob when it comes to either linux or the command line, but I'm hopeless when it comes to building programs from source.

My questions are: How can I build vlc with framebuffer support, or should I stick with mplayer? What programs do you recommend? I've got irssi, screen, alpine, lynx, music on console, midnight commander, newsbeuter, rtorrent, vim and htop. Is it still possible to use irssi with facebook chat? And finally (for now), how can I get the menu based aptitude interface I know and love? I don't mind installing using only apt-get, but I like to be able to browse available packages to see if any tickle my fancy.

Thank you in advance to anyone willing to answer any of my questions.

Discord Algorithms Study Group for Princeton Algorithms, Part I, starting Jan. 22, session.

Learn Programming - 3 hours 59 min ago

TLDR: If you want to be a part of a focused study group, and are willing to work together to see this course through to the end, then please join our study group on discord here.

Hello fellow programmers, I am part of a discord group that started last year to complete the Algorithms, Part I that is offered on Coursera. Unfortunately the group dissolved fairly quickly,with only one person, that I know of, completing the course, and all other members just slowly drop out. Even worse, the very person who started the discord group and also recruited members from this very subreddit of which I found out about it in the first place, also abandoned the group. Because of this, I would like to add some stipulations to those who may be interested in joining, I understand this may reduce the number of people able and willing to join, but I feel it would help to increase the success of the group overall.

  • You have a somewhat stable schedule, and would be willing to devote at least an hour a day(most days) to discussion of the course

  • You are not some programming genius who is just joining to stroke your ego about how much better a programmer you are, but genuinely are there to learn and to help others

  • You are absolutely determined to see this course through to its completion

  • You agree to not look up solutions to the assignments from outside sources, and do not share your solutions with others, but instead help to guide them in the right direction

If this sounds like you, welcome aboard!!!.
