  1. You can just use ruby with the pdf-reader gem for pdf that contain text. The gem has some good functions you can use, but is a bit the same as opening the file and iterating through all the lines. For pdf with text as images you will need ocr, which for most people is not worth the effort and time when developing solo. Ruby, python, php... It does not really matter which language. But it takes effort from your side to get the correct data from a pdf.
  2. Depends what he plans on doing. Also some programs work better for Intel only, granted I haven't gotten an AMD CPU so I wouldn't be able to say with much guarentee. As for the PC.. Anything that has hyperthreading, decent SSD, 16GB DDR3/+ RAM and a GPU will make do for almost any task for programming.. This is if you do programming only of course. Personally I have an i5u 4GB ram laptop that I use for school and work and it works fine. Never had an issue running multiple IDE's, a VM, many chrome tabs and a server running on those shabby specs. So if you just need a PC for programming then almost anything will be fine, really.
  3. Take the, very sound, advice of other people and buy an older macbook. Buying the new macbook pro just for "Writing document and watch Youtube videos" is a waste of money. Macbook Pro's between 2009 and 2015 are still worth their money if you compare them to the new one and take into account what you plan to do with it. Personally I would opt for the Macbook Air if you really want OSX and only plan to "Write documents and watch Youtube videos". Or just buy a decent Windows laptop..
  4. There isn't much reason to use Pug (Jade). Would not really recommend 'learning' it when you can just opt for plain HTML. Other people that work on your project also won't have to learn Pug that way. Unless you absolutely need things like extend layout from pug, just go HTML.. Little to no reason to take pug from my perspective.
  5. 128gb is barely enough for most programming jobs that i encountered. But i highly advise atleast 256 for the extra file storage. i personally have 128gb, and have only 5gb left with atleast a dozen of programs installed with corresponding project files and documentation.
  6. -- ignoring all previous posts -- Just get the 6600k and atleast 8gb ram with expandability for 16gb. 6600k is mostly overkill for programming (/what you are doing), but if you have the choice then I'd take it for when you need it in the future.
  7. No worries, I did.
  8. Razer Blade Stealth. So I can finally run a VM properly for my study.
  9. Well I wish her luck with her endeavours in sueing facebook..
  10. so gud. Totally legit.
  11. You can easily just make a dummy twitter and facebook account for testing purposes and put the project on github or bitbucket so other developers can check your work. It is also your personal project, not the one of LMG. I personally do not see any issues making the program and releasing the source code, it's not new and not even dangerous. It simply logs in with the username and password provided, navigates to post a message and clicks the button automatically. Unless you are creating a spam bot.. go for it.
  12. Do you mean interested as in making it? It is not difficult at all to create such a system, because there are plenty of libraries for all programming languages that make it easy as hell to automatically login, navigate and click a button. However it's a great way for new software engineers to explore and have fun with as a side-project. Especially if you want to try a new language. (My personal opinion) But I'll be frank and say that I have absolutely 0 interest in making it.
  13. My question is.. Why not old good fashioned youtube or plain tutorials to give you the basics you need to know? I don't understand why you would need to pay for something like this when there are free of charge options.. But that's probably just me I guess.
  14. Essentially "Buy low, sell High". Bought my Sapphire R9 290 Tri-x for 220 euro 2 years ago, can still sell it for 150 euro. So if you indeed save money, you can keep upgrading your GPU to an even better one every few years. Not accounting hardware failure / malfunction though.
  15. Got the money? Yea, why not. Right? I know I would build a beast rig if I could afford it just for shits'n giggle.
