Is prototyping really THAT important?
3 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>68153009
Thank you!
>>
In anything even remotely complex, yeah.

You'll always run into problems or design considerations you hadn't thought of until actually mucking around in the code.

Lots of prototyping will save you lots of refactoring later. It's always easier to start the final product off right because you prototyped the major problems than to refactor an existing codebase.
>>
>>68153056
right, but if it's a personal project, how can I find the target audience? I'm not a huge company, and I don't know a lot of people, should I show it to my mom (kek)?

I need your help guys.

My Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 just starts heating up, from not even touching the phone...
It heats up to like 40c, its been like this for 3 days, i tried Hard resetting it, i tried putting it back to the original options, i did not download anything, and still it just starts heating...
And the interesting thing is, it started on the same day as my Godfathers phone started heating up. I searched the internet on how to fix this, but nothing was succesful, you guys are my last hope.

Does anyone have any idea?

How do I become a better programmer?
I've been trying for a year and my friends who have been doing it a bit longer keep making me feel like a brainlet.

So take his advice and start doing.
You don't have to start big, just do little things. There's a reason people say practice makes perfect
>>
>>68151882
That's exactly the reason you suck

Stop treating programming like a history book. Stop trying to learn by heart and actually learn to program you fucking autist
>>
Just memorize. 99% of programmers aren't doing novel development that requires novel mathematical validation. Good practices, APIs, etc. can be all be memorized and when you're at a higher level you'll be expected to be able to recall it from the top of your head. A senior backend developer will at least be expected to recall the Linux environment, REST principles, general architecture principles, etc. at any given moment, you simply have to memorize that stuff. If you're applying for a specific framework job like Spring you might even be expected to know how to configure a project. If you can, you're a good dev. Just memorize

No, it's not libre.
It's not strictly GNU either (especially the MUSL version).

Parabola and Void are both pretty good imo. Parabola officially support OpenRC I think.

Void uses Runit as its init. You literally only have to make symlinks to enable services and use sv to stop/start them.

Who here got an AMD GPU (Mostly for gayming) and why did you chose it over Nvidia?

I have a Sapphire Pules RX 580 8GB for about £250. I got it because the Nvidia options available were either lower spec or too expensive (I was doing a build that had quality parts so I saved on the GPU to upgrade later, most likely to Nvidia). Plus the first Pc that I had built for me was AMD so I was just used to the platform. I wanted comfort on my first solo build so I stuck to what I knew.

I've got the Sapphire RX580 Nitro. Got it because it was cheaper than 1060. Handles all the games I play well and it's really quiet. Nothing to complain about.
I've had driver issues once. Then I just rolled back to the previous drivers that didn't have the issue and waited until there was a newer version.
