TLC is not educational and is just reality shows, today they just showed 8 episodes of say to the dress followed by several episodes of 90 day Fiancé
there other shows include My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, 600 pound life, and Hoarding: Buried Alive.
My senior year of undergrad, my then-boyfriend and I attended a machine learning seminar put on by my university. There were no prerequisites to attend, I had experience with programming and computational modeling, and I wanted to learn the fundamentals of machine learning before I started grad school. It was not a graded class; just a mini-retreat held on campus one Saturday.
Out of the approximately 100-150 attendees, maybe four (including me) were female. I was the only one wearing a dress and makeup. The professor who facilitated the seminar began by asking questions to assess the general knowledge level in the room. When he noticed I wasn't raising my hand, as I was brand new to the material, he began pointedly looking at me each time he asked a question. Then he switched his question style: "raise your hand if you haven't heard of..."
He made eye contact with me and smirked at me every single time I didn't know the answer. Other men--not all, not even a majority, but e... keep reading on reddit ➡
Whenever anyone found out that I was learning German as my second language their first response was always “oooo say something!” So I practiced a phrase I could say in perfect German that sounded super fancy but all I would say was “sometimes I put pickles on my sandwich” People who didn’t speak German had no idea what I said but I said it so clearly that they were always impressed!
It's apparent that a lot of parents are not teaching their children how to act when stopped/approached by law enforcement. By having a mandatory class, I believe a lot of what is going on today could be avoided or reduced. Law enforcement agencies need to do a better job in explaining what will happen if you fail to comply with orders and society needs a better understanding of the mindset and policies police follow.
Example: if you do this, then this might happen or if you do this then this might happen.
If the police profile you or use excessive force, please comply with them at that time and then seek legal action later. You will not win a confrontation with the police as it's happening. Resisting or being assaultive will not help your case.
The people on this sub, and the Mods themselves, need to take this moment to learn and be more proactive going forward. Whether it was Reckful, Alinity, Mitch, Trainwrecks, Greek, Ninja and his wife Jessica Blevins, etc. This sub needs to stop turning into a platform to shit on and harass these people over a fuck up/mistake/stupid comment constantly. Mods need to not let shit like what happened with Ninja's wife happen, where people just dig up old clips/tweets/videos etc just to shit on them and amplify the circle jerk of hate and harassment. Rule No 1 is literally don't be a dick, yet you'll have days where the entire front page is just old clips of whoever LSF decided to hate that day.
This is what we this sub adds to often: https://clips.twitch.tv/ToughObliqueCasettePogChamp

I've helped a few people become software engineers. The ones that learned the fastest used a mix of studying, coding challenges and personal projects. When you do all three of these things, they amplify each other. It also keeps you out of tutorial hell.
Studying (tutorials/videos/books) are how you learn about new topics and get exposed to good code. Coding challenges give you small problems to implement what you've learned and compare your solutions to other people's. Projects let you put it all together and give you something to show off when you're done.
I put together my favorite resources and then iterated on it by mentoring a few people through it. It seems to be working well. The syllabus is free and all of the books together would total up to a few hundred dollars (m... keep reading on reddit ➡
So who here is over 30 and learning web dev for a career change or for just a better tomorrow?
Thinking about starting a discord group for us. I'm guessing that most of us never quite found our place in the world in our 20's for whatever reason. I've spoken to some on here. Some of us spent our 20's in the military, some of us thought we had it all worked out in our 20's and made bad decisions, and some of us just got stoned way too much in our 20's and put things off until tomorrow. I'm also guessing that like me, you're trying to learn as much as you can, as fast as you can, while working out the lay of the land from a career opportunity perspective, all while at times having that sinking feeling that you're getting old and, you've fucked it because you're not where you wanted to be in life. I think it's good to connect with people in the same situation because it gives perspective to your own situation and clarity on your chosen path.
So who else is in this club?

I've been a support main for 4 years, I know the cooldowns, mana costs, and combos of practically every single support champion in the game.
I've got the vision control scheme and optimal team fighting strategy down like the back of my hand, I know what to do at every single stage of the game, and how to do it... As a support.
Recently I've had a disgustingly bad series of loss streaks and I've come down from D2 promos in D4 nearly demoted. Three of the games were zero death games but this isn't about that...
I'm burnt out of the support role, but I feel like even if I spend months learning another role, I won't be ready to play ranked diamond for a year.
This was 100% the problem that ranked queues were aiming to solve.
So, does anyone else have a similar problem? How can I get over this?
#3 Allen Collins - Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird solo https://youtu.be/ct_YPnx5GI4
Hey all! let's get this thing finished up in the next few weeks. It's been a hell of a trip doing this for the past two years.
Been a few weeks since I banged one of these out, but I've been fairly busy with other stuff.
Finally got to the great classic Freebird solo at number 3. Great fun learning and playing this one. As usual there's a ten minute commentary following the performance. A bit of an Allen Collins Rock and roll history lesson and a few of my thoughts on Freebird, of you care to stick around and check that out.
Thanks as always for your support here in Reddit. This project's home since the beginning.
I've figured out what my next project is going to be and I made a post a few days ago asking for suggestions but it got removed for some reason, but not before a few hundred of you chimed in with some ideas, so thank you.

Some personal information: I am a 24-year-old female from Germany and have learned professional software development for exactly 9 months. With very much help from friends, family, and Reddit (thank Reddit for reviewing my CV), I landed my dream job today.
I started sending my applications in July and roughly 20 companies got my applications, from which about 12 companies responded positively (invitation to a telephone or personal meeting). Of those 12 companies, I have 4 offers until yet and 4 still ongoing interviews (which are not relevant anymore since I just signed my contract today). You can assume that I gained quite a lots of experience (positive and negative) with job interviews in the last months' :D
Since my Bussiness Informatics degree was basically useless and I don't have any professional experience working in the industry, all I have is my GitHub profile (https://github.com/larapollehn) where I showcase my personal projects. Th... keep reading on reddit ➡
My brother got a 5 years jail sentence but is coming out soon, a few months ago he decided to learn to code with no prior experience.
I find the way he is studying very inspirational so decided to post his (simple) program.
But first, here is what he needs to go through to learn:
The crazy part is up until a few days ago he didn't have access to a computer. However! another inmate has an upcoming trial and because the contents of his trial contain to many papers, they provided this inmate with a simple laptop (no internet).
My brother is not allowed to touch this laptop and he can only see this inmate 1 hour a day, so he convinced the inmate to sit next to him for my brother to tell him what to type, the other inmate types in the... keep reading on reddit ➡
New Question! Update 2: I swapped the RAM and tried one at a time again, and the second RAM I tried solo worked! I got to that black boot device page. At this point, I assumed the RAM was faulty; I went and picked up Vengeance LPX 2x8 3200mhz confirmed compatiblity.
Here's where things get interesting again- I swapped the new RAM in, booted the computer, and got into BIOS for the first time. I confirmed both sticks of RAM, the Hard Drive, and the SSD m.2 were all detected, and then I started to select my boot location as the SSD.
I watched this video from JayzTwoCents where he explains how to boot from your SSD. I unplug the Hard Drive like he does in the video, and then the computer shuts down. I try to re-boot it, but now, it will only boot if the Hard Drive is plugged in AND I only have one stick of ram in. Additionally, it is launching straight into the Windo... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm wondering if this makes sense. Because when I look at beginner tutorials they almost all use these frameworks. I've been spending most of my time learning JS, but I I just learned that Node.js has its own routing ability, and that CSS has variables. If I just started using 99% of Node.js tutorials I would be skipping straight to using express.js.
And after a lot of reading and watching I still have no idea why the hell I would need a framework. But then again state management isn't a big deal for me right now, which seems to be the main use case?
My gut tells me to just ignore these things until I need them. But any intro Udemy course, or even the famous free bootcamps, all seem to include these frameworks as if they are core topics in web development. Is it just the instructors/courses bending their course to student expectations, or have I missed the reason these are taught as beginner topics?
I'm working as a web developer and looking into entering the field of machine learning. My motivation is to work on self-driving cars, or on projects related to biology and medicine.
What are the things that one doesn't learn from books? What are the biggest technical and non-technical challenges?
I've seen hundreds of articles, threads etc. on switching to machine learning and breaking into AI but not even a handful about leaving. But I'm thinking about just that. Anybody here actually did that?
After a couple years as software developer I did a PhD in a domain that was later dominated by deep learning. So I also became a DL practitioner and have been in that field for nearly a decade now.
In the latest hiring rounds where I interviewed people I saw effects similar to what's described in http://veekaybee.github.io/2019/02/13/data-science-is-different/ Or discussed in https://www.reddit.com/r/cscareerquestions/comments/igyte9/flood_of_highly_skilled_dsml_new_masters_grads/

I started writing "Slither into Python" a little over a year ago and I have recently completed it. I decided to release it online for free as a thank you to the programming community, in particular the Python community. I know a lot of you out there are learning Python at the moment and I hope this resource can serve you well.
If you have any questions, or feedback for me, then please let me know, my email is on the site!
I know this is a difficult time for many of us but we can use it to our advantage! Many of us have a lot more free time now then we ever had before, so use this time to continue learning and really ramp up your skills!

Hey everyone. I am 19 years old and my parents are in their 50s.
For as long as I can remember, I have been allergic to several things:
Since I was a young child, my parents have completely kept all of them out of our house. While other kids ate breakfast cereals, I ate fish and assorted pickled vegetables for breakfast. While other kids had Lunchables, I had grilled chicken or fish with, again, assorted vegetables (usually sweet potatoes). While other kids ate birthday cake at the birthday party, I had an apple.
I never questioned this until a couple of months ago. I was at my aunt's house for my birthday party, and she made brownies for everyone. For me, she took great steps to make them with almond flour and avoided all of my allergies. I started eating them and thought little of it until my aunt suddenly looked at me and, in a panicked way, asked which plate I took the brownies from. I pointed from the one where I got my brownies, and s... keep reading on reddit ➡
Or is it just me?
It's such a motivation killer.
What can I do to be able to understand what native speakers are saying? Vocabulary? Grammar? Just keep on watching shows in the language and hope something sticks?
The speed is so quick, and the grammar is so different, and the words are so many, it seems like I'll never be able to get through even 5 minutes of an episode.
Edit: Sorry, should’ve shared which language. It’s Persian/Farsi
Also, thanks for all the feedback and input and support and guidance and advice! I’ll try to read every one and reply to some!
