    Programmer's Den

    A place to discuss any and all programming... I haven't found my calling in life yet, but programming is my favorite past time at the moment; aside from other things which are not socially acceptable and/or dangerous.

    I'm currently fluent in:
    1. PHP
    2. SQL
    3. CSS
    4. JS
    5. HTML
    6. Arduino

    I'm actively trying to become fluent in (in descending order)
    1. Java
    2. HDL
    3. Objective C
    4. C#
    5. C++



    You can see my failure at a Java relay program here, http://www.coderanch.com/t/631893/ja...r-Client-Relay, the old timers really know what they're doing, and I really, really don't :/...

    So, tell me about any coding projects you're working on!! I want to know, I must have information .

    Learning a programming language is easy, especially when you already know one.

    Doing something original and worthwhile is much harder.

    I'm making a compiler at the moment for a language I've designed.

    What counts as fluency? I don't think I'll ever feel "fluent" in a language.

    Heh, I mean I can write to almost the fullest extent of the language and not need a reference. If there is an error I can fix it almost instantly.

    It's easy if you know an object oriented language, php is nowhere close to Java. I can write functional code, I just can't write as much as I wish.

    I only try to do original stuff, agreed, it is much more worthwhile.

    What does your language do? Is it in raw machine code :??.

    Yeah that probably won't ever be me.

    Just practice, it helps...

    I'm "fluent" in SAS and Common Lisp.

    I wouldn't consider myself fluent in R, python, or C, but they don't bother me. Actually that's not entirely true...R bothers me on an intellectual level in that I try not to use it if it can at all be avoided. Course, what one considered fluent differs depending on how far one sees. I wouldn't consider the people around me who use R each day to be fluent in it, and I've had to help them with it at times.

    I can't share with you my last project or two, for it gives away my identity too easily, but I currently have on the backburner a data linking program, and I'm currently working on predictive modelling of sports gambling...because I am sick of working...

    No. It uses Flex for the lexing, Bison for the parsing, and C code for the rest.

    I have a few books on genetic algorithms if you want to team up and train your gambling bot .

    I need to read up on those so I can form a coherent response...

    Well, i'm trying to do it specifically so i don't have to work with anyone else :P No offense, nothing personal. I won't say never to working with others, indeed for most things its necessary, but I'm doing it in lisp also partly because I'm trying to do it all myself. If it doesn't work sufficiently i'll open source it/team up with others, but for now I'm being all creepy hermit guy...
