What a coincidence! I would like to play the guitar too, but I don’t think I have enough talent to learn it 😅

i want to learn some kind of functional programming language, i’m thinking about haskel, elm, or some kind of lisp

I’m really getting into elixir this past months, probably my favorite language atm. Even though it’s not the ‘purest’ functional langauge out there, there’s a bunch of great documentation! Not mentioning some incredible built-in tools, such as rpc and gen-servers (a small thread for state control, the Erlang VM can hold up to 2 million of those, insane stuff).

I too want to learn elm.Do you knowing a good resource to start?

i’m not really a great source for this since i have yet to learn it, but i got hyped up when i saw this talk about elm, tho i should warn you that there is some sussy stuff going on with elm now. i read that the creator of elm removed the ability to call to JS for anyone but himself and removed ability for users to define custom operators. i personally, while still am interested in elm, will also take a look at PureScript which seems to be elm’s most popular competitor

I wanna learn to code. I’ve been stuck in the basics for to long and i really wanna move forward. But still don’t know what I wanna code, so that was also a problem.

Yep, same here. I want to learn a programming language as well but I haven’t really made big progress so far.

even though it’s a cliche, I’d suggest you to start with javascript, it can be used for a bunch of things, from there you can decide if you like what you’re doing, or you prefer low-level stuff.

tangentially, for a high-level language the syntax most resembles lower level stuff (compared to python at least). i felt the transition from js to c was smoother for me than my classmates when i started using c at uni.

I know I little bit is c++ and python. I was thinking that starting with web development might be a good start. My problem is mostly a lack of focus. Wanna learn but I have no idea what projects i wanna do, so i had no real reason to go forward. But I really like it, and might be useful for me soon.

You can code a contacts manager app. It needs to add, read, edit ans rénové contacts. The more data you can manage the better, for example, work and personal phone numbers and email. Job title, company, created at, updated at, last time read at, etc. For each field you need to manage input sanitation, error handling and error messages. For profile photos you can do picture upload, read image from social network like a proprietary one or from the fediverse.

Interesting, ill think about that. Or something else, like inventary.

Learning programming. Started a couple of weeks ago with Python but I’m still in the early beginnings of the learning curve. Can barely write anything but I am starting to understand Python code from others that I see online, so I see that as an absolute win.

Fire breathing. I got Abbath’s autograph at Tuska Open Air 2015 and he told some advice regarding fire breathing. The oil used has to be fine paraben oil because it doesn’t cling to the throat like mineral oil. And one has to never swallow it because it means an ambulance and a belly flush. Fire breathing is just something over-the-top I want to learn doing.

How to host a Lemmy instance. I spent an hour this morning going through a training course on Ansible, now it’s giving me different errors haha. It has something to do with SSHing into my VPS. I can SSH in no problem, but Ansible apparently isn’t using my default SSH key?

¯\(ツ)/¯ More searching and more tinkering and it’ll work eventually!

How technical is it so far ? Would love to try also. Kinda done some coding and droplet creation. But not much linux experience.

@Jeffrey

The official documentation for installing with Ansible is very simple, but not very detailed.

If I understand correctly, droplet is just DigitalOcean’s marketing term for VPS, so you probably already understand the basics of SSH, simple Linux commands, and running a VPS. You’ll want to be familiar with the basics of Docker, and if you choose to use Ansible for installing you’ll need to be comfortable with that too.

If you come across any issues during setup you can ask the community for help. It’s really not difficult, but there’s more to it than sudo apt install Lemmy.

You’re correct. VPS on digital ocean.

You’ve really motivated me that i can do it ! I’m at basics amof linux commands and ssh. But could be fun learning the docker basics and ansible

All the time I think about learning another language. There’s a lot of languages that I already know a little bit, but clearly not enough to actually use them. It’s always tempting to think that I could “fix up” one of these partially-learned languages and somehow be productive in them.

Rollerblading. My little brother is very good at it so I decided to learn. Gliding on the street’s concrete is incredibly satisfying, when I started learning a few weeks ago I didn’t expect it to be so fun. I’m progressing slowly, but I’m looking forward my next holidays so I can invest more time to at least feel confident enough to ride alone without fearing to be run over by a car because I couldn’t stop at a crosswalk (seriously tho why getting used to rellorblade breaks has to be this hard ugh)
