Re: Hey what's up Dawg? (Generic Chat Thread)

that makes a lot of sense thank you. i guess my expectation was that once the recursive call was done x amount of times, the return at the end of the function would then return it all the way back up, but i can see now why that doesn't work. it'll probably take more attempts at recursion for it to t...

Re: Hey what's up Dawg? (Generic Chat Thread)

any advice on identifying those kinds of predatory companies? obviously not looking for that to be my experience when i graduate re recursion: i have to learn recursion because my first CS uni class requires us to do almost everything recursively haha. if you could go through it here and help me out...

Re: Hey what's up Dawg? (Generic Chat Thread)

can you expand a little more on what you mean in that first part? and did you work on side projects to build a portfolio for when you graduated? i guess i'm just worried that i'm going through all this work of getting a degree and then i'm gonna graduate with no projects to show for it and struggle ...

Re: Hey what's up Dawg? (Generic Chat Thread)

see, even though i want to work on a project like that, i don't really have the drive to go through the learning process of actually doing it. i consider a project to be work and when i do work i want it to be for a school or for a salary. i do enjoy programming most of the time and it has been incr...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

sooo i watched baby driver the other day andddd... i really didn't enjoy it. like almost at all. i only got halfway through before i turned it off because i was bored. what was i missing? there has to be a reason for why it got such widespread acclaim. the only thing that really stood out to me was ...

Re: Hey what's up Dawg? (Generic Chat Thread)

isn't the terminating condition in a linked list the while !curr-next? that makes sense regarding trees - at least from a pseudocode perspective. the question is whether i'll remember it when i need to write it on my own. It's normal to be confused about this stuff by the way. It takes your brain ti...

Re: Hey what's up Dawg? (Generic Chat Thread)

that does help thanks i can kinda see it now. as for implementations linked lists (circular, doubly etc) and BSTs are the first data structures we're required to traverse recursively that i'm being exposed to. i think a linear linked list you just wanna call itself while !curr->next and set curr to ...

Re: Hey what's up Dawg? (Generic Chat Thread)

hey saladman do you have any recommendations as far as learning recursion goes? I'm close to transferring to university full time and the final lower division CS class requires all the algorithms to be done recursively, but we haven't touched on it at all in any of my classes so my brain isn't wired...

Re: Whatcha playing?

I've never touched the original but from everything I've heard it's just flatout better across the board - so much so that I see people recommending to skip the first (which is what I did). I'm about 40 hours in (in act 3) and tbh I have very few criticisms with the game. the writing and choices are...

Re: Whatcha playing?

will do. i picked up Divinity Original Sin 2 in the meantime after all the hype and it's really good. it's every bit as complex, deep and engaging as people made it out to be. it is ruthlessly difficult though. part of it might be that i just don't understand the combat and gameplay loop yet (i didn...

Re: Whatcha playing?

i got XCOM 2 in a humble bundle early this year and dropped it after an hour. idk why honestly i didn't hate it or anything. i should revisit. i love those kind of tactics games, but i guess the game didn't grip me enough right away to keep playing it.

Re: The MOVIE Thread

i looked through Lynch's filmography and i've actually never seen any of his work somehow. i checked out the pilot last night so that was my first experience with his stuff. i enjoyed it. i'm guessing i'm only scratching the surface of how weird this show is gonna get. i was also surprised at how fu...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

i haven't. i was told to start from the original so that's what i was planning on doing. bummer to hear though. i've pretty much heard good things about it across the board (both original and new).

Re: The MOVIE Thread

saw IT last night. i knew very little about the movie since i never saw the original or read the book. was basically an entirely new experience for me. i enjoyed it for sure and pretty much agree with your assessment that it was a fun film to watch. very entertaining, even if it wasn't all that scar...
