  1. What does it mean to fail? Do you have a failure message?

    Self-study programming

    I agree with you that Git needs to be studied. Haha just ... I agree with you on all sorts of things. Like the fact that high code is usually not interested in what's below, because that's the reason they go for this abstraction in the first place. The classic computer is not at all interested in how things are realized below. I still think that for a beginning programmer it's great for all sorts of reasons, but I admit that the standard programmer usually does not get to these things. And more, in my opinion - how can you learn these things without Understand at least on a general level how things look down, just out of interest. It may be that the majority are not like that, but I can only testify to myself ... it's a matter of how many want to be a specialist. Nothing. But I think it's terribly limiting and boring. I do not come to argue with you. Mathematics is important in every field of engineering, especially in software engineering. Algorithms, which is considered a desirable field by many, are mastered by mathematics. So are networks (probability), graphics. (Linear algebra, and other surprising areas sometimes), cryptography (you name it ...), Bina Mel Acute etc. etc.. You can often get by using existing libraries, but they also have programmers (and these are particularly equal jobs), right? And maybe what the library does is not exactly right for you? There are many degree courses that have helped me. As Fermat said when he apparently wanted to evade the proof of "Fermat's last theorem": "I have discovered a wonderful proof for this theorem, but these margins are too narrow to contain." But seriously, at this point I think it is needless to say what helped me from the degree. Since you seem to have already done your research, if you're not convinced by now, you probably will not be convinced ... and really that is not my intention. (And I also really like making history)

    Self-study programming

    @af db creid I hardly agree at all. Yes, when coming after a bachelor's degree to a first job one has to learn a lot of new things, and it may seem like the degree is irrelevant. From my experience, very quickly find that the title helps a lot. You say you studied on your own, and certainly well done, but not sure anyone could do it. There are areas that require knowledge in many areas and a strong mathematical foundation, which is very difficult to acquire in a self-taught way. But that everyone will do what they see fit, I just wrote down my opinion. The reason taught in Academy C is mainly pedagogical, which is also the reason I recommend it. From code C you can almost directly understand what the "machine" is going to run, and you learn a lot from it. That is, its true value is primarily educational. It could be argued that one may not have to know how things work, but again, here comes the matter of personal aspirations and interests. Besides, what's so awful about operating / real-time operating systems? A domain like any other domain ...

    Self-study programming

    In my opinion when you feel you master Python, you will move on to languages ​​that make better use of other paradigms (such as functional programming and object-oriented programming). But even before you do that, you will learn C. I think it will make you a better programmer, and make you better understand how a computer works. As for the other questions I do not really know how to answer. But ... unless you go to very specific fields, I think a degree in this field is a good thing if you already have an interest in the subject. Being a programmer is not just about knowing how to write in programming languages. Of course it is possible to learn everything not through academia, but it is more complex for most people. The degree will open your eyes to areas you did not think of or did not think you needed to know, and will cause you not to skip steps you would otherwise probably have skipped.
  5. Not exactly what you said, but still pretty cool. I did not know it. So you are not going for a complete keyboard or is it in addition to a keyboard?
  6. The processor (in the form you chose) does come with cooling. This cooling is generally fine, but @Moon-Mage recently showed me that TMS allows you to order the processor separately and add to it the cooling that comes in the packaging of the 3700X, which is better. So I would change it in your specification. Besides, the specs look fine.
  7. So why do you need a Z series board? Anyway, for the areas you are aiming for I would go for the Ryzen 5 3600 with a motherboard with a B450 or B550 chipset depending on what you know you need. You can be guided if you want more specific recommendations. 16GB of memory at 3000+ MHz will suffice, unless you do things like virtualization, video editing and such then I would upgrade to 32GB.
  8. You write in Java. From what I understand, you have no way of rotating the canvas, so you need to make the relevant changes to the shapes that make up your object yourself. Because your problem is very limited, you can calculate in advance (with a pen and pen and some arithmetic) what the new positions should be for each shape in each of the 4 positions your object should be in (initial position, rotated 90 degrees, rotated 180 degrees And rotates 270 degrees), then put it in the code, and move to the appropriate configuration according to the rotation. Of course, this can be solved in a more general way, but it's just overkill. It's a simple exercise, and you better leave it at that.
  9. @Moon-Mage Yes, definitely a better specification. Good deal on a case + supplier that allows you to improve the video card.
  10. You seem to me to be putting up posters without checking them out. Compare with all the reputable sites for selling computers - there is no reason to lock on one store. I used to think you had a special reason to buy in KSP, and now I understand that this is just what you knew. Another thing, you do not need a burner to install an operating system, certainly not a particular buy. Using USB. What screen do you have? Here's something preliminary that seems to me to do the job. I added an SSD to which you will install the operating system, and you will add the 1TB of storage you already have for the rest of the thing. I put a case for you too, but it's only there as a "substitute." Choose a case that suits your needs.

  11. First of all, C is not a particularly difficult language and I think it's a pretty good idea to learn it regardless of whether you intend to program at some point. But it is not the most successful language for learning algorithms and data structures ... Introduction to Algorithms is an excellent book and also contains exercises in each chapter. All the algorithms in the book are written in pseudo-code, so as long as you know English, you should understand the operation of the algorithm. Is also a bit mathematical, because what to do, how to talk about algorithms without mathematics. Although it is called "Introduction to Algorithms", it also contains information about data structure because each algorithm eventually uses / operates on data structures. Another book, which is less of a reference book and less heavy, is learned from an algorithmic problem-solving mindset is Programming for the Puzzled, which like the book you mentioned earlier was also written by a lecturer from MIT, and was delivered almost as it was a kind of enrichment course there. The algorithms are written in the Python-style pseudo-code. The book is delivered in the form of a problem presentation, "lets" you try to solve it yourself, then presents a solution with explanations (and usually solutions one after the other, with each improving the previous one). Another option for a reference book is Algorithms (the algorithms are written in Java) I personally did not like it that much, but many recommend it.This would not be a complete answer without mentioning Knuth's The Art of Programming (which contains four volumes on algorithms), but I mention it only for completeness 🙂 because the previous books are more appropriate.
  12. Regarding your questions - the specification is fine in terms of component compatibility, and also the power supply you have chosen will do the job. Why Intel? AMD system will give you better performance for the same price.
  13. Yes, that seems to be it. But what I have to say to Nvidia is this:
  14. Not familiar with the case, but it seems to come with three fans. You can take one of them back in principle and it will do the job. If it is important for you to have this look of the 3 fans in the front, then yes, it is advisable that you bring another fan that you will have in the back. The idea is to have positive pressure inside the case to save a fight. Do you make your own?
  15. It's not in addition, it's in place. Take the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Tray, which means that only the processor itself comes. But if you buy the whole box, then the processor comes along with AMD cooling, which is a spin and should suffice for your needs. It's not crazy savings (about 90 shekels), but I just thought to mention in case you just do not know.
  16. So ... are you actually saying that the computer is down? Okay, I'll go now ... 😜
  17. It is impossible to know for sure. This is not something official.
  18. Yes, I agree that gamers usually do not care so much how loud the keyboard is for this very reason, but most of us do not just play on the computer (or live alone at home 😁). Like I said, this is just my humble opinion. By the way, there are quiet and tactile switches, And you also have to apply less pressure on them, but it's rarer to find them just on "ordinary" keyboards. It's a rotating keyboard. They're a kind of "imitation" of Cherry of sorts. That does not mean they are necessarily less good, but it is a bit different. On the box of the keyboard is written the color of the switch that matches the type of switch.
  19. Here is a good explanation. Um, of course, yes, sometimes it's okay, sometimes it's not. In most cases it's fishy.
  20. According to the uses you have listed, AMD is better for you. I enclose a possible specification. You can play around a bit with the CPU and video card according to your preference. I did not add a case for you, because it is quite a matter of personal taste and what is important to you. I can guide you but, if you want. As everyone has been writing here lately, if it can wait, the talk is that in about a month new graphics cards will come out that at the same price will give you 20% -30% more performance.

  21. I have a keyboard with Cherry MX Red switches and I really like them. It's a matter of personal preference. There are basically two prominent categories of switches - Tactile (like MX Brown) that get feedback when the switch starts to be active, really feel like going through such a bulge, and there are the linear switches (like MX Red), where there is such a continuous feeling when tapped (hence the name) . If you can find a store that allows you to type on keyboards with both types of switches this is of course best, but if not, then at least you will see some YouTube videos that demonstrate the differences. Most people prefer Tactile switches, and I can understand that. Write here about the MX Blue, which are both Tactile and Clicky, meaning that they also make a lot of noise. I know there are many who like it, but I personally do not understand how. It's insanely loud. Like typing on a typewriter roughly. Gamers generally prefer linear switches. I do not know the keyboard you mentioned, but at its price (at least in KSP) you can get almost all the best keyboards, so I would check more options. At such a price it is not worth locking up just for something 🙂.
  22. Can you tell me where you got the idea for section 2 from? Is this something you saw working somewhere, or a feature you would like to have in general?
  23. 3600X is not worth the extra price, the difference in performance is small to non-existent. The 3600 should be enough for you. The board if ok too, I guess. I personally would invest another drop in the board just to allow a future upgrade to the next generation of processors, but in the end who knows what will be. As for doubt, you go for something 650W in the style of a good company (for example, something like that). It will also allow you to make a bit of changes if you want in the future.
  24. Playing with graphics in the style of what you see in a YouTube video.
