Christmas rock n roll
I solved advent of code day one (part 1) in rockstar
I'm now officially a rockstar developer!
@magnusjonasson Ja, men då borde ju alla kunna göra det för elstödet också, även om de inte har konto i storbanken de skulle samarbeta med. Men det kanske blir så, vi får väl se nån gång när det nu blir.
@magnusjonasson Det är väldigt konstigt eftersom FK uppenbarligen kan betala ut VAB och sjukersättning till alla möjliga banker.
Asdf gör utvecklarpodd i adventskalenderformat, och resultatet är en perfekt lucka poddmys på morgonen: https://podcasts.apple.com/se/podcast/asdf/id1506059489?i=1000588262678
(Swedish podcast Asdf are releasing a podcast advent calendar - one short episode per day - and the first episode is perfect.)
Subtooting about programming
People who are otherwise technical: "regex is hard let's go shopping".
I saw yet another such discussion, containing various memes, all based on the same tired idea that somehow regexes are too hard to understand.
I don't know if I'll lose followers by saying this, but seriously. Regexes are not hard, and if you don't know how to use them you're going to find yourself writing hundreds of lines of code to do the most trivial extraction of information from strings.
Seriously, even in the most simple form, if you want to get the number from a string of the form "some-words-here-1234XYZ" with some simple rules on what the "words" may be, without regex the code is going to be absolutely unreadable, and you'r going to find yourself with edge cases where your custom parser will give the wrong result.
But no, a 10 character regex to do the same thing is too complicated.
@stemid Yes, of course. But I'd prefer not to have several different accounts or logins just for that. And I don't see browsing the feed as the same thing as following people. If there are new people on that instance that writes something interesting, I wouldn't see it unless someone I already follow boosts it. I often go to the local feed and read messages without necessarily follow the person.
@remaster Nice! Unfortunately it seems to be IOS only. I'm currently using the normal Mastodon client on web/Linux and Android, so if someone knows about this feature on a client that runs on those I'd be interested.
@krig I agree in principal, but there has to be people willing to sacrifice time and money to manage the instances too.
But maybe by closing registrations, it would force people to set up more instances too.
VPS services could make it a small add-on fee to easily set up and maintain an instance.
