    Cool topic. Will follow.
    As was pointed out, markup languages are completely different from programming languages. The main difference is that they lack any kind of logic to them. 
    Some markup languages (such as TeX) contain programming constructs for logical typesetting, but even then it's not programming. HTML/CSS do not fall in this category.
    So, yes, your professor was very, very, wrong. They are not programming languages at all (sorry for stressing this so much).
    I think C++ is a great place to start developing your programming. Java is great for learning, but since it manages your memory automatically, you'd miss out on all of the fun that is fixing segmentation faults and problems of similar nature.
    Looking forward to more updates.

    tbc got a reaction from fizzlesticks in C++ vs C# Does it matter?   
    most of your post is correct, but this part is dead wrong.
    the single worst performance mistake a beginner can make is to write their own sorting algorithm rather then using the standard library
    the second worst performance issue is causing memory leaks.
    it's effectively impossible to cause a memory leak in c#.  in c++, even the most experienced c++ devs mess up a pointer or two.
    a beginner simply won't know enough to take advantage of c++'s lowlevel features and will cause more damage than good if they try to.

    forgot to make a recommendation: go with the cx430m (or the cx500m if you're especially worried). the 'm' for modular is important unless you're REALLY tight on your budget.

    I always say to buy a good power supply brand (only seasonic, silverstone, and corsair for me - yes, I'm aware of how seasonic OEMs for the other two) and completely ignore the wattage. rather, count the power connectors themselves - make sure you have enough connectors of the right types.
    the key point to this is to buy a good unit from a good brand.

    tbc got a reaction from linusforsell in Should I learn JavaScript?   
    okay.....let's start this from the beginning.
    what is the simplest language to get a GUI hello world running in?
    the champ is undeniably html/css/JS/jQuery
    no compiling.  no GUI framework with complex element initialization
    they should NOT have to worry about visuals because all GUI generation code is unique to each language.  they should spend their time learning cross-language stuff (programming concepts ala foreach loops),  no platform can beat the web platform in this objective.

    tbc reacted to JDS in To Kraken G10, or not to Kraken G10...?   
    It's understandable to be upset about something like this if you took the time to build a custom loop, because you spent the money and took the time to make a custom implementation into your build. Nobody likes knowing that anyone can just buy a AIO and consider their case watercooled. It's like putting a Corvette engine into a piece of crap car, yeah, your car goes fast, and it's way cheaper, but it's not a Corvette, and you won't be allowed to participate in a Corvette museum. Long story short, short cuts aren't appreciated by enthusiasts. That's what makes enthusiasts, enthusiasts. But, in this era, we are given short cuts that just plain work well, and shouldn't be given flack for it.

    tbc reacted to zinfinion in The Dell u3415w could be the first Dell 21:9 monitor with a resolution of 3440x1440?   
    3.5K Scope. The 3.5K signifying that it is nominally 3500 pixels wide, and the Scope denoting that the aspect ratio is somewhere between 2.35:1 and 2.4:1 yielding a possible vertical resolution of between 1434 and 1464 pixels given the width of 3440 pixels.

      Fixed that for you. the (x)K system goes by width, not height. Also, 5040x2160 is not even possible with DP1.2 or HDMI 2.0, so not really sure what that's doing in the list.
    What will most likely appear larger than the 3440x1440 is a 4K Scope 3840x1600 display which is precisely a 2.4:1 aspect ratio. It would also be easily derived from existing 2560x1600 production, just as this 3440x1440 is derived from existing 1440 production.

    Correct, True and False are built into python, while something like 'true' and 'false' would be created by a coder (although I would not use those names because they are so close to True/False)

    tbc reacted to aikoels in First time making a calc   
    What error = True does is set the word error to True, since later on I say "if error == False:" it will skip all of the code in that if statement You need to put the if statement there for it to work. Be sure to keep in mind that "error" if a variable I created, not a python built in function. So you could literally change error in my code to "purpleGiraffe" and it would work just as well.

    syntax failure upon incorrect indentation.
    that means if someone's source control or editor modifies whitespacing.  it will break.  obviously the problem is fixable, but its an artificial problem that shouldn't be have been made in the first place.  as far as i know, it's the only modern language that requires proper indentation for scoping.
    errors (which will ALWAYS happen) that you can see are far preferable to others that you can't
