I did an analysis of the official leftypol twitter performance, and wrote a report on it. You can see more information in these two threads:

>>>/gulag/7976

>>>/leftypol/1034489

I was asked by a poster to also share this here, and to specifically ask if anyone here has any ideas how the twitter cropping algorithm works, and can offer any tips/insights.

Thank you in advance.

I have recently started my first course in Software Engineering. The first programming subject we got apart from C is learning assembly language. I have zero knowledge of the subject and it seems quite intimidating at first glance, and was described to us as a hard course. So I wanted to ask, what would be the best sources of information to learn the language and how to even use it? The YouTube tutorials always seem a bit shit and from my first glance it is true for asm as well. We were also all recommended to read picrel over the course. Is it good and or enough for learning? It's 34 years old, so I was wondering if there were more recent manuals on the subject.

Play TIS-100 or Shenzhen IO or Exapunks. They don't use actually existing assembly languages, but the principles, commands and syntax are kinda similar.

Thanks for the help anons. Just finished my first proper assembly program. Feels good, but damn is this shit unintuitive to code.

One of the really neglected aspects of programming is software 'architecture' i.e. how to do overall design of a software system. Indeed even today many companies are replacing leetcode/algorithms style interviews with "systems design" type interviews or at least adding that.

For leftists or open source programmers we also need to study systems design to make programs better.

First book is a textbook for a grad school class on software architecture, published first 2013, and the next is a more modern (2020) book on architecture which teaches more FAANG style designs.

opinions /tech/ ?

I've worked in FAANG. It's a fucking mess. It's a meme that they hire great people there. Most are average to good devs. I've worked on projects that had dedicated senior architects that got scrapped years later because they were obviously badly designed from day 1.

>>4143
Don't know about OSS, but I would expect it to be better written/designed.


Good software developers/architects must remember to be suspicious of using meme architecture, like microservices and meme technologies like nosql, and meme research areas like ML.

Also, re usability between unrelated projects is a fake meme (unless working in non shit languages, which is never the case). In almost all cases, readability, testability, and "refactorability", should be priority. Coupling, premature optimization, abusing OOP patterns (SingletFactoryAbstractFactoryBeanVisitor), use of compiler directives, global state, parallelization, should be avoided as much as possible. Clear APIs are also very important.

But yeah, how software is made is a good idea to think of new ways of structuring code.

thats a reason to study architecture more, not less…

as for >>4143 :
seriously, can any of these anons responding
>NUUUUU these graduate level textbooks on architecture are wrong, every academic computer scientist and senior FAANG engineer is a pseud compared to me, read my Stallman memes instead they are way more better and based.
actually tell me what particular problems with the PDFs in OP? or in >>4141 which is the pdf that has the FAANG styles, or are you literally just shitting on it because its muh silicon valley and i'm going to write it in common lisp instead because Paul Graham and Stallman told me to do that in the 90s even though the last time they wrote code 80% of the people that use this site weren't even born.

Really, the fucking arrogance.

>Good software developers/architects must remember to be suspicious of using meme architecture, like microservices and meme technologies like nosql, and meme research areas like ML.

those things are only memes for non tech companies which would indeed be better off making traditional apps + a relational database, which in practice, they already do. Almost every non-startup/faang just does 4 load balanced traditional web app (server side rendered) with an oracle or microsoft database and some rando reporting software for the business analysts/managers like crystal reports(if c#) or Jasper reports for java.

You dont know what you are talking about, you never was in faang for sure. You cant write good Java code (decoupled) without using OOP patterns

Sup guys, looking to move my normie friend gaming group from the garbage that is discord to a mumble+matrix/riot (with some fileshare on top mb) hosted on a VPS. Does anyone have tips, insights, and good cheap VPS provider recommendations to give ?

so depend on your budget, location (EU/NA/MENA…)
i will recommend you online(scaleway) the price vary from 8 - 12 euro a month for a VPS but they have a quick and good support no limit in bandwidth + root access . Note : they are installation fees depend in the options you take

Or you can build your own and self host you can try getting a cheap Optiplex or those Lenovo Think center mini they are low power or even a raspberry pi
4 with active cooling, i have a raspberry pi that i use as a NAS+adblocker and other small automation service in my rack with my other network.
if your IPS give a static IP you can use a freedomain service.

>>4734
europe and 5-10 bucks a month top as budget
I should be tech literate enough to install my shit myself if I have root access
I'd self host if my home connection wasnt so shit, but it would prolly be an awful experience for the others, although I do have a raspberry I use as a retro gaming platform, so I could mb give it a shot. Mumble might work, but I'm afraid it will fuck with my connection if we use it as a fileshare. And my ISP give dynamic IP, pretty sure I'd have to pay extra to get static.

 No.4739

>>4736
for VOIP you don't need a high bandwidth just a stable one that will be enough for 20+ clients with a stable bitrate.
and yes ISP are shit

well as i said you can try scaleway this should be enough for mumble + file sharing
careful they got installation fees
