Otaku, gamer, self-taught programming student and professional procrastinator from Brazil. In fact, I am procrastinating at this very moment. I love boomer shooters too.
At first it seemed like a cool idea, especially being open source and having a lot of people I watched on YouTube.
But as time went on I realized it was a complete cesspool of hate. Not only on some very bad videos, but especially on comments. Even videos that seemed completely absent of controversial topics somehow had to have some icky comment.
I’m sorry, but your freedom ends where mine begins.
I then completely gave up on it, especially since my distaste for anything crypto only grew bigger since then. The Linux Experiment made a blog post about leaving Odysee some time ago. I agree with everything written on it.
I love Mental Outlaw’s content, btw! I’ve been watching him for a couple years now.
I can’t recommended Tachiyomi enough. You can download any translated manga/manhwa/webtoon (on multiple languages too!) you want, since you gather them from different sources and websites available inside the app. There’s also a fork called Tachidesk that lets you perfectly read and download mangas on the PC.
But I yet have to find any full-blown officially translated volumes as PDF/EPUB pirate websites.
Programming in Go is a blast. I love using the language and the ecosystem.
But let me tell you, Google never made it any more enjoyable to use Go or to be part of its community. Quite the opposite.
I wonder if we are somewhat close to straight up forking it or trying to create a different compiler, just so the community doesn’t have to put up with Google anymore, or at least we begin to actually be heard.
In my experience (or at least on my social circle), the implementation of this system wouldn’t do jack. No one would want to pay an additional fee for simply sharing a damn account. They would still keep sharing it freely, since there really is no reason whatsoever to pay for such a thing.
Though I should point out that here is a third-world country, and if many people can’t or barely can afford the lowest SD resolution plan monthly, there would be even less people who would pay a little extra to just share an account.
This policy is so obviously ridiculous.
I always found freeCodeCamp.org’s video tutorials to be the best ones out there for beginners, so if your friend prefers learning stuff on video I’d suggest two videos:
Introduction to Programming and Computer Science if your friend wants to grasp the concept of a programming language and the really basic “whats” and “whys”. I watched only the first ten minutes and it talked enough about what is a programming language. However I don’t think it is obligatory, since these concepts are easy to grasp as you go (at least that’s how it went for me when I was learning by myself).
The actual Python one is Learn Python - Full Course for Beginners, which does introduce how to setup and write Python, as well as programming concepts.
Both of them are pretty long. At least for me, I didn’t ever felt the need to watch/read a full tutorial, since I always learned new stuff while searching on the web or watching specific tutorials for it (I remember I couldn’t understand what and how for loops worked, so I tried to search and learn about them specifically).
Again, it really depends on the way your friend prefers to learn.
Just start it and work your way out
The best way to learn something is outright just using it in an actual project. I’ve seen great tools that started as just some dude wanting to learn a new technology
The “software stack” doesn’t matter as much as some people make it to be sometimes. The most important is that you enjoy coding the project and that you have motivation to continue developing it
sure, this would work with Lemmy since that aren’t that many posts, so even if there’s something low quality it doesn’t override the amount of good content
but how would posts filtering work when a community or even Lemmy itself becomes big enough so that there’s more low quality posts then those that would normally stand out more?
I would personally hate it, since it would be hard to see actual good and interesting posts I’d actually like seeing.
just sort any big subreddit by new and you see it’s difficult too find any interesting content right away
maybe the solution would be highlight posts with more comments? though it would work, it would obfuscate interesting posts that don’t need or get as many discussion in the content and it would highlight controversial posts
great post! I’m actually very excited for the future of Hare and the recognition it’s getting in the FOSS community, especially when it just got publicly announced. It’s always nice seeing something fresh being considered as a real alternative to writing software.
I’m also seeing how the language can bring light to SourceHut, since it’s a great and simple git repository aggregator. (is that how those are called?)
Though I’d wish for the language too have Windows support, I can see why that is considering it’s pure FOSS nature. It certainly would enable an audience outside of the FOSS community to try out the language and consider it for writing real software.
I didn’t knew about this writer and would like to report how it’s missing a RSS feed (am I really that stupid to not have found it?). Or if there is one, at least share its existence more explicitly on the website. I genuinely want to follow the blog.
I do agree that the vast majority of distributions made for daily use uses the GNU Core Utils (hard to use most popular software without glibc).
But I’d like to remember that there are more than a handful of Linux distributions we use everyday while forgetting they don’t use GNU Software at all.
Take for example Android or distributions used in server/embedded systems like Alpine Linux. The kernel and the Unix-like environment is the core reason people remember them as Linux and not Bionic, BusyBox or musl.
You are still completely right when talking about casual desktop Linux, which the majority of discussions about “Linux” focuses on.
Damn, I want GNU Hurd to be s table soon so I could flex about my GNU system.
Perhaps we could create a c/GNU community?
I’ve became interested in gamejams for the last couple of days, so I should definitely try to participate in this one :)
This will be my first jam, and I’ve never completely finished a project, let alone in a limited amount of time. I’m already nervous if I’m gonna be able to organize myself.
Any tips for jam newbies like me?
started using searx.be since the tweet, and it seems great.
Highly recommend using tealdeer, a faster implementation in Rust
Honestly have no idea why the recommended client is the one made in Node.js. I understand why one would use it, but in my opinion it’s too slow for a command line utility
kdenlive, a great open-source video editor. The best in my opinion.
Yeah, for some time I’ve realized some weird “takes” here and there but nothing that abnormal. I haven’t seen every video of his, so I might be wrong. His comment section on Odysee was absolute filth though.
