What do you look for in a code review?

To be honest I just try to understand the code and the changes, which means that most of the time I point out things that hinder comprehension, like misleading variable names, overly complex approaches, and sometimes bugs in the logic or missing corner cases. But I feel like most of my comments are just nitpicking and I am wasting everyone's time.

Do you have a linter hooked up with whatever your team uses for code reviews? If not, do everything you can to get one, it makes everyone's life much easier. But yeah, that sounds miserable.

Yeah no I agree with you. I think I perceive it this way since I'm only at the starting phase of my career and lack the exposure. I know that most pragmatic approach is to save my autism for my personal programming projects, rather than being a nuisance to everyone at work.

>>1536
We do actually, but it mostly cleans up formatting errors and gives some warnings about unused variables and such. Not really that helpful. I mostly have a problem with their portrayed disinterest for structure and cleanliness. I perceive their mentality to be something along the lines of: "My first attempt did what it was supposed to, so why take a moment to consider it and possibly iterate it one more time.". That being said I realize that you have to draw the line somewhere. You probably get my point.

That's enough about my complaints. Reiterating OP's question: What do you look for in reviews?

In my last job, I was as picky as you, OP. But when it came to fixing all the findings, we were told to only fix potential bugs, and leave all the violations of the coding style guide in place. I especially hated it, when people write code, that doesn't even fit on a full HD screen with a small font. Like what were they thinking? I would be ashamed to deliver such code. The real fun begins when you try to do diffs side by side with such a mess.

I also felt like i was too picky all the time, because nobody else seemed to care, but on the other hand, this software was low-level code for devices peoples lifes depend on.

You probably don't want to know what shitty code is inside health devices like pacemakers or insuline pumps and what not.

Neon lights and colourful LEDs.
Some kind of anarchic work and tinkerplace occupying the room. The wires must come from somewhere afterall and the low life makes money recycling electronics, breeding something into marketable offspring, or having an oversized wildly modded together cpu dominating the room for some nefarious online sheme in its rented apartments or improvised hideouts.
If you dont have a hobby like that and are willing to life in the junk of all the shit you collected from your cities dumpsters or sustain a humongous electricity bill for a gamerPC set up taking up half of your room or a bunch of aquariums and lavalamps bubbling away with lit up liquids as part of an omnious trinket collection that will either gain you the admiration of your guests or many confused questions this might get somewhat complicated to pull off.
The coroporate jobber low middleclass or anyone with an officially listed income might life in prefab appartments where most surfaces are made of some stuff or plating that looks as if it was quickly assembled like IKEA furniture, most surfaces being in use for something as space is expensive in the 21th century. The less cramped places might follow a somewhat pleasant industrial design.
If you want your room to look from the inside like a 70s multistorybloc looks from the outside you need to commit seriously so it doesnt look hideously or ends up being a problematic construction and if you got a landlord this might end up not achievable.
Darkness and colourful lights, a careful selection of furniture(Steel cabinets?) and wallpapers or even concrete/rust optic spatula technique coatings for selected walls if your landlord is ok with it or you are lucky to own your four walls might take you to a desirable outcome tho.

I don't know what a Cirno is but if you have a date associated with it you may draw some conclusions by comparing it to the book's date.

As Hugo award nominees go it's on the weakish side, but if you're into social satire with black humor you might give it a rainy afternoon.

What makes the graphical interface of proprietary software superior to that of Free Software solutions? I know that people like to complain about GIMP and others, but I got pretty used to it at this point and never used proprietary alternatives. Are they really that much better? What's the difference?

 No.1528

The X Window system had a lot of problems but most are solved now really, beyond being sort of complex and "insecure" (doesn't really matter, since Unix-likes are about as insecure anyway). Wayland is supposed to break things down into some D-Bus/XDG/logind nightmare or something, not entirely clear to me, maybe someone knows better here.
Ignoring all other options and going directly for GTK and Qt (Qt isn't nearly as bad as GTK though). GTK and Qt go through major version changes and impose change on programs which creates instability and extra developer work. GNOME has been changing its design paradigm and everyone else has to pick up their turds and deal with it.
GIMP is not even bad other than the fact that it uses GTK. Single window mode, dark mode, GEGL options, Mypaint brushes, its all been default for quite some time now, but Adobe users just won't switch away from an 8 year old program (the pre-cloud version of Photoshop). Never used Photoshop, the most complex proprietary graphics editor I have used is Paint.NET, but GIMP is more capable than that one. Krita is a little easier for painting and drawing but it has a worse text tool last I checked. I remember people whining about CMYK for years, but its in Krita and GIMP now as far as I know (there was a GIMP plugin for CMYK for years). I think they just don't want to learn a new tool, there will always be excuses, but they don't really mean much since these people don't plan to switch ever.

cont'd
I like Eaglemode, graphical Emacs (the X kind without GTK), and some of the X window managers as well as mpv. Links (browser) has a graphical mode but it looks much like the curses interface. Worker is an interesting file manager and a good example of a classic X11 program that never died out, but its a bit too orthodox, so I don't use it.
Once you get away from the big GUI silos trying to replicate some other system semi-successfully, you can see the advantages and disadvantages of the Unix-like approach. Unix-likes don't really care much about graphics so there is a lot of complexity in the whole pile of display technologies. Ideally they're just trying to display a TTY, not a graphical environment with GL acceleration and programs capable of displaying OpenGL or Vulkan stuff with specialized hardware and drivers. It took many years for Mesa/drm (not digital rights management) in the kernel/X to work this well for a lot of people, and there are still problems. Desktop software wise, people had to write a lot of standards, XDG/ICCCM/EMWH and so on, and they're not really seamless or without problems, so its kind of terrible for an Apple, Windows, or BeOS clone. But on Unix-likes, you can have it your way usually, you can have your own window manager of choice that works well for you and can be modified to fit your needs, rice Emacs or Vim or whatever, tile those windows, etc.
Oh and NVIDIA doesn't care much about Linux or other open source platforms so CUDA isn't really as relevant (requires proprietary drivers), and OpenCL usage is limited, so there are less programs using or related to that sort of thing.

I found this video about making something similar. They cut up the image into parts in some editor and then use some magic in AfterEffects to bend it. The first part can be done easily in GIMP, but is there any FLOSS software that can do the second?

because humans make it and use it, the machine doesn't care you can make a language based on different dick sizes and it will still take it, but we don't think like that we think and verbalize our thoughts with words, we refined to a point where we can use letters who are easy to grasp and to memorize in a verbal way who can also be used in a number of different variations

square+circle+lain+circle+dildo+triangle= function a
"a" = function a

The Little Schemer (and its continuations) have a very nice dialogue-like structure to them, which takes a bit of practice to read effectively, but once you are used to it, is a delight to read. The examples it use are very fun, too. I was told that it is an example of "programmed instruction" but other books labelled programmed instruction are nowhere near this masterpiece.

This is a textbook written for students whose introductory programming class used a functional programming language, the concrete examples are in SML. It teaches C and imperative programming through translating functional programs into efficient and idiomatic C programs. Sometimes the translations are quite formal, other times somewhat heuristic.

Hi. Where do you think the best places are to promote my new cyberpunk book, Hemispheres? I won't pitch it here in respect for your space, but I have been developing my website and I need to test it to see how people are going to react to it before launch. https://www.markeverglade.com

My email is markeverglade.author at gmail dot com if there's any feedback.
