Interesting little applications, this MyFun application is about one step to be turned into a reference-collecting image. As of now for example now there is only PureRef and it works as it works, but perhaps it has certain limitations or other things that makes it not quite good. As for example for me the case is that I see 0% fun on placing my images by hand, I just want them to snap into place like magnets. This application gives me the idea that it can work like that.
If you are interested to look Node.JS and bake your applications as .exe (with virtual browsers and native features) it would be a much more advanced transition from plain .html files.
Yep. I had a “supervisor” who had a plaque that said that writing code is hard. I always considered him to be an idiot. I consider writing code very easy. I can write code in any language. However, if I’ve never seen it before it takes a little longer.
If this, then that. Show this here. Let the user do this, then that. Handle human errors. Do not “handle” software errors. Let them happen, then fix them.
It’s just that simple…
Oh… And test. Test. Test. Test. Test. The dumber the tester, the better.
Whilst I’ve still held onto my textbooks from college (…purely for nostalgia’s sake) when studying JAVA but these days imo a few exceptional YT channels seem too provide a more streamlined self-learning approach without felling entire forests
I admire those who can flow so smoothly writing code. Absolutely amazing talent!
I’m wayyy to creative to slow down that much. I’m a 2nd gen creative who should’ve been locked away a long time ago, ha! Incredibly strong ability to see in terms of rhythms and patterns. And then there’s those overwhelming moments … flashes of brilliance. Those are the ones that drive me crazy!
I taught myself to program in BASIC in about 1983 on a computer with a Z80 processor, BASIC in ROM, and 16k RAM. Just out of interest. Twenty years later I retrained in IT and learned a few more languages (mainly JAVA) but ended up teaching in the program once I had finished. It’s only now that I’m retired that I’m actually doing any real programming (well, simple Python scripting actually) to support my personal investing/trading. Plus a bit of Machine Learning, which I find quite interesting. All good.
I do programming as well and have stepped away from it for a few years along with graphic design. Tried to retire early, lol, in a perfect world. Tried a couple of other job types as research for something I was programming at the time. Then over covid I started learning 2D and 3D animation and creation.
I have been fully focused, every extra minute in front of the computer learning. I have been having a great time with it. Hours seem like minutes, it’s like the day just gets away from you and it almost over. And like you, after 2 years of this, learning 4 different software, shading, lighting, modeling… I decided to open up NetBeans and start to re-code my website.
I have missed programming. It is a nice break but I still find myself back in Blender playing with different settings to see hat kind of bizarre things I can make. Or back in iClone playing with a couple of scenes for a couple of different projects I have been working on.
It’s always nice to have something to take a break with. No matter what you are into, sometimes you need to walk away to avoid burnout.
