  • OT: Coding/programming

    I know it's an off topic but after nearly 8 years of not having touched any coding, I've come to a crossroad of my life where I understand that I won't put food on my family's table unless I get my ass back into coding. I haven't programmed/coded for a long time and I'd like to eventually get back into it.

    I've started doing the tutorials on Codecademmy, a friend has recommended getting eclipse and working on an android tutorial which all seem interesting. Anyone else do this kind of work? I just think it could be something to get back into since It's so in demand at the moment.

        I've made my way through a large part of the java codecademy stuff and thought it was all really awesome. It says there is a python section but I can't seem to find it.

        I'm most fluent in stuff like FORTRAN and idl for comp phys stuff so java is pretty different for me (objects are particularly interesting).

          Study fundamentals. By all means get some language/platform coding experience but set yourself up right to succeed. Learn effective TDD (Test Driven Development), Growing Object Oriented Software Through Tests is a good book on this. Learn and understand the SOLID principals (if you are going OO, FLUID if dynamic). Design Patterns using the Gang Of Four book. Understand the current architectures for the field you are interested in (MVC, REST (SOA), MVVM, etc). Know how the platform you use works at a lower level.

          Most of all, have fun

            VB.Net, C, a bit of Eclipse, a bit of AVR and so on. .Net and Databases is where the money's at.

              Depends on what you want to do, do you want to work at a start up and get in on the ground floor, if so, JS, Mongo DB/CouchDB, RoR, etc are the way to go. I guess for me technology is a secondary concern, the concepts and skills to write effective software are far more important; frameworks, languages and the flavour of the month come and go, when I hire devs I look for fundementals.

                I'd start the basics before jumping into Android development. That framework is a little over-complicated. Learn basic Java and object-oriented programming first.

                  Python is a good language to learn - has lots of uses, nice and easy to use.

                      I'm a senior application systems analyst... which means I design and program in COBOL, Java, SQL, etc on the Mainframe.

                        That's one I'm going to start getting into. Looks like there is a lot of demand for it.

                          I do a bit of coding. VB, C/C++, Python. Can't say I like it, but yeah, it's a pretty important skillset.

                            Python is a pretty easy and functional language to learn. The hardest part about coding sometimes is finding a project or goal to code for.

                              Been coding since 1980. Mainly embedded C++ for the last 12 years. Been a good occupation, but after 32 years it's getting a bit old. Nevertheless there's always money to be made.
