Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 23 by valzey(m): 6:09pm On Dec 29, 2023
Hello, do I need to submit payslip and tax statement if I'm a full time staff?

If you go to Canada now, you have to plan on how to support yourself until September when you can begin to work under you study permit

Ok, so if I have sufficient proof of funds, it's not a problem?

Hello everyone, thanks for all the knowledge I gained in this thread. I got my PPR 17th of January after applying on 24th August and I'll post my timeline soon.

I got admission for a one year course for January but my PPR came 17 January so I had to defer my admission to September.

Can I still go to Canada January after the visa returns from stamping?

How early can I travel?

Are you having difficulties finding a job? Ask for help, you don't need to bash other people hustle because you're unable to compete. After all, aren't they doing the job?

How this is possible? I try this and the same i get into the wallets but balance running 0. How to get balances? Thank you

Don't bother, any good combination of characters can be a private key which can be imported. Those are not people's accounts just transaction hashes that happens to match a private key format.

If you're using windows, you can change your keyboard layout to UK or English international, can't remember which. Google how to do it.

Programming / Re: What To Do You Do When You Lose Interest In Coding by valzey(m): 9:58am On Oct 17, 2022
When you're still unmotivated after taking a break, just think about the money.
If it's not sufficient, think about how life could be if you continued and how life could be if you stopped.

You can try out CS50 on edX though it only touched C. It's not for the faint of heart though but the experience will be rewarding. Very useful for a computer science student.

Programming / Re: Please Can Someone Recommend To Me A Low Budget Laptop For Coding by valzey(m): 11:59am On Feb 09, 2022
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, 2022
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, 2022
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.
