How long does it take for a noob like me who can barely code a christmas tree in java to become an 3l1+3 1337 hax0r?

>>2936 You renounced my highlight of “talent”. What kind of “talent” did you possess that the Java college taker does not have, that got you hired in the first places. For a “white man”, I don't see you making hiring opportunities to drive the market into the Donald E. Knuth way. The way you phrased this response compared to >>2928 alludes you're still a slave monkey, and not playing in the real open market of computer sciences. Where's your venture capital (((white man)))?

I wanted to make a proper post instead of ADHD shit liek >>2938 >>2916 Java is still worth learning because there is a lot of code written in it (so there also jobs) Java is also better choice than C# simply because Java still has better ecosystem of free and open-sores tools and libraries when compared to C# and the JVM is actually good platform (there are other languages that use the JVM such as Kotlin and Clojure) Knowing Java and the JVM also opens up the opportunity to learn Android app development as well (well, C# has Xamarin but idk if it's any good) >>2935 >>2937 are you implying that knowing about algorithms is not worth it? or are you implying you shouldn't do something that you enjoy? I actually started hating programming because of college classes. I has been two years and now I am finally starting to get into programming again. >>2928 has the right idea. you should also remember to work on projects that you actually enjoy. otherwise you are likely going to burnout and drop out (which happened to me)
>>2939 Good points Anon. And yes, there are still plenty of Java-centric jobs out there.
>>2939 So that's what Chobitsu has, ADHD, and can't concentrate to liberate the proper way to teach programming for ten years while feeding young lads to join the proper market? >hating programming because of college classes We're not in complete disagreement, if your reading comprehension is limited. We are both saying colleges don't teach, however, I'm telling him "What are you remotely even doing about it than cite some good books?" He's not changing the landscape, making programming fun to learn, or going to libraries to tutor youth. He's telling you "diy, you should deal with this alone" like every sucker that enrolled to college because reasons. He's not telling you how much ass kissing he had to do to get his current 5 figure job.

I found an interesting looking site which interviews people asking them what hardware/software they use for their life/work/projects. The actual website has no JS and is ~300KB Which I know isn't the smallest it could be but it is a breath of fresh air in bloated JS-framework monstrosities. There are some interesting people there that, if your interests overlap with mine, you may want to have a look at. Consider the date of the interview because some are 10 years old.

It turns out archive.is is really behind Cloudflare. Should have checked with TBB before posting those archives, sorry. And for a moment I felt happy that there is an archival site without 3rd party elements or javascript required to use and view it. Alas, The Wayback Machine needs them to function.

>>1078 I'm pretty excited to order one, but I'll probably order in the 2nd or 3rd run so Pine has a chance to work out the bugs. I'm really happy with my Pinebook Pro, works like a dream. >>2642 Shoo, shoo
>>1711 >Would you believe me if I told you I would rather have the chink government spying on me than my own (U.S.) government? Yes, which is why I personally use Yandex unironically. I trust the Russian more than I do Google and the rest of Silicon Valley. Still, the Chinese are not as less trustworthy as you might think. Looking at the various videos articles from /cvg/, you watch as many Chinese both official communists and unofficial shitheads deliberately botch up products before they are shipped. The Chinese are also known to root many domestically made devices with backdoor software and hardware. Sure, they might not be an existential threat like the U.S. Government, but the companies that make tracking devices are selling and using that data without your permission, often maliciously. To completely ensure a secure phone with secure components in America, while expensive, obscure, hard, and tedious, is at least still possible. We ought to enjoy and use that freedom while it lasts. >>2546 >>2550 >Do the librem 5 cellular data/bluetooth/wifi hard switches actually work as a way to avoid any triangulation methods? The purpose of a phone like Pine or LibreM is lessen the footprint of a communication device you cannot not use so that whatever data a mobile company, NSA, and the like are getting on you, it won't be much and won't cause severe future legal or social problems, if any. Like the other anon said, the cell phone by it's very nature tracks your location. It cannot work without doing so. If you truly wanted to be safe from any and all phone tracking the only way to win is to not play that game. Welcome to the brave new world!

So is OLED/microLED going to ever get market share, or will desktop users just be stuck scrounging up half-dead CRTs and buying mediocre LCD panels?
6 posts omitted.
>>2463 Not with the advent of Quantom dot displays. Those have all the advantages of SEDs while being more kike friendly in that they can be integrated into existing LCD fabrication methods unlike the more autistic SEDs.
Are there any technologies that could be manufactured by individuals? I assume a lot of new ideas never get into production because they cannot be mass-produced easily. But suppose you only want to manufacture small quantities, would that open up any new doors?
>>2829 That's not how any of this works. Mass production is always far cheaper than individual production, "cannot be mass-produced easily" means it's only two or ten times cheaper rather than a hundred or a million times cheaper. Integrated circuits are in the "million times cheaper" category, the ability to make enormous batches of them at once is the only reason they're economically viable.
quantum dot doesnt fix LCD, it just makes color better. you still get terrible viewing angle issues, anti glare coatings, and pixel response curves >>1301 it's all moot. it doesn't matter how big the screen is, as long as it isn't assballs quality like LCD
>>2830 But suppose there were a manufacturing process that would require a high IQ individual to manufacture a device. Most companies would probably never even attempt to research such ideas, because even if they could sell professional monitors for 10k USD per monitor, they wouldn't be able to get any kind of significant volume, because there wouldn't be enough high-IQ workers. For an individual with the right skillset and the right tools, however, that approach could be doable.

>>2819 >>2820 Find me a good paying libre source job I can contribute to the community without subscribing to the botnets.
>>2821 Why are you asking a loaded question? Why should I find you a job? You didn't know the system doesn't like libre source because it exposes and eliminates the (((profits))) and big brother jail society which is the mass surveillance dystopian talmudic assrape they keep burdening and exploiting people with, selling their data like NPC's for some fucked up schizophrenic purpose like OP described? Just like anything else not kosher it won't exactly be advertised on TV. Because the system is about controlling the owners in jails, with the devices they bought, for their own ends, rather than the owners of said purchased being capable of fully controlling and modifying what they paid for if they so wish. It's always about depriving people of freedom. Right now a subset of people are trying and have made small businesses oriented around making open source alternative advances related to hardware such as, phones, motherboards, CPU, peripherals et cetera, for a decent amount of money. What profit they make i have no idea. But if you have the skillset required make a business yourself or maybe try to get a job there by sending an email. This is implying FSF FOSS hardware will suddenly become trendy and not just a very important issue recognized by a small group of people who are not just consumers and who actually care. But who knows, maybe plebs will be tired of this technological judaism in the near future and finally see the importance.

Given that the Mobile World Congress got cancelled and industrial suppliers are starting to feel the lack of cheap imported chinkshit due to all the shutdowns it's as good a time as any to have a thread discussing Corona-chan's antics from a /tech/nician perspective. Summary of recent events: >Apple, Samsung and others shut down their Chinese stores >Wuhan funeral homes recieve around 100 bodies to cremate a day with the fire numbers rising, are understaffed and overworked to the brim >More Chinks are infected and/or dying than can be transported to Hospitals or crematoriums >Smuggling rings and militias formed around Wuhan and possibly other cities, attack helicopter formations spotted flying over neighbourhoods >Hospitals don't have enough Masks or test kits for diagnosing let alone beds to house their patients, now supply lines of general medicinal goods are starting to choke too >PRC economy at a standstill, CCP is paying businesses for now but many companies say they won't survive if it keeps up >Corona cases outside of Chinkland keep rising in number, most of them on cruise ships >Western companies and suppliers growing increasingly concerned at the lack of goods coming from China, automotive production set to be particularly affected due to all the parts produced in Chinkland >On top of all that there have also been reported outbreaks of Bird flu and Swine flu among Chinese livestock >CCP desperately trying to downplay and censor everything with help from the WHO >MWC cancelled as every major participant drops out How will Inthell, AMD, Jewgle and others handle this? The majority of their fabs are situated in the PRC which is coughing with no survivors, they can't meet their production goals if the quarantine measures keep up and moving all their shit to India, South Africa or Venezuela can't be done in a short timeframe.
