Programming / Re: Why There Are Few African Programmers by guru01(m): 3:49pm On Sep 15
DonSegmond:

So? DId you ever study economics? Do so. Learn about cost of living.

Americans pay taxes. That's why things are nice over there. Like 30% of their income. So take home pay for that is going to be about $36-$49k.
Which is $3250 to $4083 a month. I didn't add Social Security Taxes and other misc taxes. About 30% is fine.


But here's a quick breakdown of non optional monthly expense.

Retirement 401k - $300
Rent - $1000 ( if Mortgage then $1600+$200 property tax + $200 HOA fees + $100 home insurance. - $2100) This is in a cheap city.
Health Insurance - $200
Car payment - $250
Car Insurance - $150
Car repair/budget - $80
Car parking/wash/others - $50 (In Chicago, downtown parking costs $48 a day, getting dedicated parking downtown is going to cost $500/month easy)
Cell phone bill - $50
Cable/Home internet bill - $100
Electrical bill - $50 (if you live in hot place, you will see $150 when your AC runs all day)
Natural Gas bill - $50 (If you live in a cold place, you can see $150-$250 during winter months)
Water sewer bill - $40
Gasoline bill - $70
Food - $200 (This means no eating out, you are cooking, eating out is like $10 for a cheap meal, if you did that 3x a day that's $30 or $900 a month)
Grocery - $100
Student Loan - $200 (This is cheap, College is now easily costing about $80,000)
Personal care - $100 (Women pay $100 to get cheap hair done that lasts a week, $20-$25 haircut/facial shave)
Entertainment/Social - $200
Vacation - $0. Flight begins at around $200 to most places, hotel rooms $100/night. So no vacation.

Total is $2880. If you were buying a house, then it would be $3980. Mortgage is monthly for 30yrs. With mortgage, you get lawn, snow shoveling and home maintenance expenses.

This is without girlfriend/wife/boyfriend expenses.

If you have kids, child care will easily run you $1000 month.

Even tho you have insurance, you still pay your deductibles, which can easily be anywhere from $5,000-$10,000 a year. If you have car accident, get speed ticket, your car insurance goes up and you pay tickets, or insurance deductible of around $500 to get your car repaired.

So there you go $3250 to $4900. You are single, no vacation, eating mostly at home. You are saving $370 to $2000. At $51k, you can't buy a house. Buy a house while making $70k and your savings drop to $920.

Have an emergency and you are done. Visit Naija in December and flight will cost you $2,000. A lot of people in American are in debt, what they get is a "comfortable" life but not plenty of cash.
I strongly agree with you.

Programming / Re: Php Vs Python Which Is More Easy!! by guru01(m): 11:03pm On Aug 19
Raypawer:
i saw this comming!

i know more php e-warriors are loading their e-guns, ready to shoot, but wait, has php ever been compiled to bytecode directly?

guruO1, yungcheda
Is a programming language a compiled language?
Programming / Re: Php Vs Python Which Is More Easy!! by guru01(m): 6:56pm On Aug 19
Raypawer:
Olumyco, scripting languages are not compiled directly by the system, rather an interpreter comes to play before the system could run the code

eg. php, python, javascript

mean while for
Programming Languages, the system understands the code and the are compiled directly

eg. Golang, C#, Java, C, C++

since java sometimes is interpreted instead of compiled, so then?

if thats the case it means you can compile php directly into bytecode..

learn, u no go gree!



First we need to know what a programming language is.
At its minimum, a programming language is something that is read by the computer and instructs it to perform certain operations. Many people would also expect a general purpose programming language to be Turing complete. However there could be situations where a domain-specific language isn't Turing complete but is still a useful programming language for that specific domain.
Programming languages can be compiled or interpreted, and they could run on many platforms or just one specific one. Different needs require different programming languages. Clearly PHP is a programming language.

My definition of "real" programming language would be any programming language that has at least one practical usage in the real world. This is opposed to an esoteric programming language which typically has no practical usage. Since PHP is used widely to solve real problems it easily meets this requirement for being a real programming language, although it is arguably not a particularly beautiful language.

PHP is a pragmatic language. It was created out of a specific need to be able to quickly make web pages (the name originally stood for Personal Home Pages) and the language was extended as required. Since there was no theoretical background or strong design principles driving its creation (there isn't even a formal specification of the language) it is less clean than many other more modern languages.

However PHP is good at what it was designed for and many sites use it, even very large sites like Facebook, Yahoo! and Wikipedia.

teampregar:
Guru01, do not open source it..
here is a good advice:
Start small and grow bigger..
Your search engine should grow vertically instead of horizontally..
It is better to have 100 users who really need your service, than to have 100,000 users who used it because you told them to use it..
I think you should first make your service a online local directory..
where users can find location of places or business locally,
for example I go to bayelsa for holiday, need to find a shopping mall, I would just go to your to ur site and type "Shopping malls in Bayless state" and get results..
Though d idea may make u spend money(u will need to get people in the 36 states of Nigeria to give u locations of hotels, schools, recreation centered, e.t.c).. Guess what google cannot know more about Nigeria than u(there are in U.S.A, u are in Nigeria)..
Believe me if you can get like one hundred active users on this kind of service u will be growing vertically(small numbers of users who really love ur service)..
Then from there you can add option for webmasters to submit their websites to your site..
If u can achieve this you will be surprised how the early users of your service will be the one to market it for you(word of mouth method of marketing, dis was what made whatsapp popular) ..
That was how facebook, snapchat, etc started..
Facebook started as an online directory for profiles of Harvard students(small group of highly engaged users) from there it supported other universities ND now facebook is used all over the world)..
This secret is what most Nigerian startups fail to know, they want to grow horizontally instead of vertically(which is wrong).
You know most Nairaland programmers believe a social network from Africa will not be successful because facebook, twitter, etc already exists, guess what, I will be launching my social network, soon nd I will shock u guys cause I have a secrets to startups success which others don't, I am more of an enterpreneur than a programmer(techpreneur), and also Paul Graham(Silicon Valleys best business adviser) is my business mentor
Looking into each post critically.

@op, both are good and rapid language to learn.
Since you are already into Python, stick with it, then you can always learn PHP later.
