Programming / Re: Programming Is Nothing Without If & Else Prove Me Wrong by valzey(m): 7:30pm On Aug 01
This is like saying programming is nothing without logic. Isn't it obvious? Does it have to be said?

Forget about the billion naira idea and post the developer's salary. Also you should be recruiting a team of developers and designers if you truly believe it's a billion naira idea.

Programming / Re: Please Can Someone Recommend To Me A Low Budget Laptop For Coding by valzey(m): 11:59am On Feb 09
I don't use 4gb device but I know people who learn react with 4gb RAM and op said he wants the minimum he can use to learn. You just have to be moderate with chrome tabs because that'll be the major RAM eater. And don't expect lighting speed.

Running in Dev mode does add some overhead but you probably won't have issues when learning.

For low spec laptops, I totally recommend Linux.

Remember this is over 4 years since op wanted to start development, I don't think he should delay any more.

At least 8GIG RAM with 256GIG SSD laptop. I recommended 16GIG RAM with 256 SSD

I don't think this is true. SSDs help but it's not necessary. Also 4gb RAM is tolerable for front-end web development.
Programming / Re: Please Can Someone Recommend To Me A Low Budget Laptop For Coding by valzey(m): 8:53am On Feb 09
You should target a minimum of i3/4gb ram for web development as long as you won't be using visual studio or developing dotnet apps. Using Linux can also help you better.

Programming / Re: I Need Help Installing Linux by valzey(m): 8:48am On Feb 09
You can't install Linux on windows except through WSL for which you need an SSD or you'll hate the experience. What op did was dual booting Linux alongside windows on his machine which is basic. An alternative for more powerful PCs is to use virtual machines.

When trying to dualboot, you should find out if your PC uses GPT partitioning or MBR. Generally GPT uses UEFI and MBR uses legacy BIOS. I always prefer UEFI/GPT.

Then download the OS image from their website, take note of the CPU type and number of bits before downloading. Then download a tool called Rufus to prepare your flash drive to be a bootable drive.

Boot using your flash, how it's done differs from laptop to laptop so you should lookup how to do that on your laptop. Then follow the prompts from the OS installer.

Note: it can be risky if you don't pay attention to details.

Programming / Re: Go And Study Your Algo And DS by valzey(m): 10:39am On Nov 28, 2021

Probably topics under discrete mathematics are hardcore programming topics on their own. Some programming languages don't even have loops so everything looping needs to be done with recursion.

I don't really like the idea of doing everything with recursion unless the requirement is baked into the language. Languages like Haskell make functional programming a requirement. And there's even a trade-off because function calls are expensive and recursion is not exactly easily readable. I like the approach of JavaScript, different approach for different problems. Sometimes array.map(iterative) makes sense, other times you need array.forEach(iterative) and other times you need array.reduce(recursive). when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Buy the idea of pure functions is cool because it makes automated testing way easier since you try to avoid side effects in your functions but at some point you'll need to write to db and that's a side effect you can't avoid.
Programming / Re: Certificate In Programming by valzey(m): 7:45am On Nov 23, 2021
Certificate in programming does not have any use. At least none that I know of. You'll be given coding challenge or you'll be interviewed for your knowledge and experience during the hiring process regardless.
Programming / Re: React Is After My Life....please Help!!! by valzey(m): 6:12am On Nov 19, 2021
Check your package.json and remove the extra react dependency, delete node_modules and package-lock.json or yarn.lock and refetch dependencies.

You can either use the most recent react-router and follow their latest docs https://reactrouter.com/docs/en/v6/getting-started/installation or specifically use the version of react-router you're familiar with, that's why we have package managers, you are not forced to use the latest package.

Note: react-router V6 is not backward compatible with previous versions.

You're doing well, next step is to remove the music files, host it somewhere else like your drive and pull from it. You should not check those kind of files to source control.
Programming / Re: Help Needed On C by valzey(m): 10:50pm On Nov 05, 2021
Please am greatfull for your reply, but i need help. I only build applications that run as console application. How can i start making windows application, i tried learning winApi but i notice their is alot of difference, such as "HINSTANCE, HWND", etc. And no much explanations. so i thought i skipped alot of topics, and i decided to search for next level before the WinApi. Please if i had wrong decision in leaving winapi pls inform me to know if i needed to continue learning the winApi.
Thanks alot.

I suggest you skip winApi, if you're looking at windows apps, use C# but I don't recommend you learn windows apps development because that space seems reserved for enterprise companies. I recommend web development. You may find a good business idea along the way or a decent job.
Programming / Re: Help Needed On C by valzey(m): 11:31pm On Oct 29, 2021
It depends on the kind of developer you want to be. When you make up your mind on web, AI, desktop, mobile, data engineering....etc, browse the related languages and technologies for that path. Then resume learning.

But like the previous guy said, without building anything, all your learning is pointless.
Programming / Re: How Do You Manage The Situation? by valzey(m): 4:24pm On Oct 19, 2021
That's how most of us gain extra knowledge. The process of figuring out the problem rewards you with more knowledge than you would have gained if it went smoothly. It is usually this way people discover that versions of software/libraries matter and how each operating system is different. And of course that semi-colons can be very important and is not the same as comma.

I don't think having girls here makes any difference, what do you expect? Nudes?
They're programmers too so they'll talk like other programmers.
Unless you're looking for females who are learning so they can be easy catch but you're better off getting a girl in your neighbourhood than online.

Programming / Re: Macbook Pro Is Overrated. by valzey(m): 7:40am On Aug 02, 2021
I also got a new 2019 MacBook pro. But I got it because I needed a Unix compatible machine that worked out of the box as WSL had successfully frustrated the hell out of me and I didn't want to dabble again in the world of Linux distros.

The heaviest thing I do with the Mac is running docker and kubernetes related stuff and it does not hang on me.
Programming / Re: :) by valzey(m): 9:17am On Jul 28, 2021
I kinda agree with what he says. There's nothing stopping anyone from becoming who they want to become in our current world. The world is freer now than several decades ago.

It's reasonable to attribute the absence of certain demographics in a particular domain to less compatibility of that demographic with that domain. We don't need to jump on the racist bandwagon. If you have something to offer, people will reach out to you regardless of colour or gender.

Blaming other races is petty and childish in my view. After all, it's not their fault that our schools and government are useless. It's just similar to the lack of talent on the part of whites in the music industry and no one is stopping them from progressing, we just don't like their music.

Just keep at the back of your mind that you can do anything you set your mind to do. Blaming is simply weakness.
Programming / Re: Can Someone With Access To My Cpanel Make Changes To My Admin Dashboard? by valzey(m): 6:34am On Jul 24, 2021
1, 3, 4 are possible. 5 is also possible.
Cpanel gives more power than admin dashboard because you have direct access to the database and code files.

If you use a shared hosting and perhaps other low cost hosting, then 2 is also possible.

Programming / Re: As A Programmer How Do You Learn/understand A New Language by valzey(m): 5:41am On Jul 18, 2021
I never cram code and yes, I forget syntax very well. I often mix operations in C#, JavaScript, PHP, python and would often have to browse to remember. I even do this during interviews lol because I know too many languages. But make no mistake, I'm very good in all and it's more like an experience thing to me. You don't need to study a new language concepts from start to know that you should not try to index an array beyond its length or use an uninitialised variable. Most concepts are reusable across languages.

About my learning process, It depends on the reason for learning the language. If I'm learning it for the feel I just complete at least one large project that uses all the basic concepts in the language and jump off. But if I want to switch my core stack like I did with golang and the React framework, I'll try to grab the concepts as deeply as I can.

Now golang is a special case because it's behaviour is unlike any other language even it's closest sibling C so you really have to grab it's concepts and style but most other languages are similar to each other and so I don't go that far for them unless perhaps to understand how multi-threading works in that language and many few other stuff.

Even React is also unique as you'll need to learn it's hooks and when to use them to be really good and it's concepts are different from other frameworks.

Usually my search history will be like: check if string is in array JavaScript/C#/PHP...etc and I don't have the energy to look at a previous project unless to reuse blocks of code

Programming / Re: Guys Help!! by valzey(m): 11:21am On Jun 02, 2021
I don't think they can mature in a group class within any time frame. They need personal practice and take home assignments.

So having some laptops is not enough. The students should have laptops and do their assignments at home if you really want to have the impact you're looking at.

I'm not being pessimistic, just bringing this up so you can shape your idea better.

alright sir. Do you have any idea

Web development is always a good way to start. That way, you'll also have a feel of databases.
The knowledge you gain there will be useful even when you want to switch to the others as you would have learnt JavaScript, MySQL/MongoDB and at least one backend language.

I'm particular interested in datascience / database management and website development.

I don't think datascience / database management and website development are particular. Each is an entire path with sub paths. You should pick one for now.
