I want to make some software projects in my portfolio/github to show to potential employers. Ideas?
5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


>or dockerization, kubernetes,
I use these in my personal projects.

But I don't really use them to pad my resume. I'm too autistic to fool people with a padded resume and a flashy interview. I just use them because they are nice packaging tools and I like tinkering with deployment and server stuff as much as I like to program.


Do they actually look at your "portfolio"? In my experience they don't even read your CV.


In my experience they don't read it but they sure measure how long it is.


No, they've got neural networks for filtering resumes now.


small shops do look at the cv/githubs. The AI hr filters mostly applies to big companies that post job ads on linkedin/etc. and get 1k+ resumes per job posting

Comrades, we need a thread on privacy. Any decent activist should try ways of staying anonymous on the web and prevent being tracked by governments and corporations.General tips===* Use free software as much as you can.* Use GNU/Linux and keep it up-to-date, to be sure that you don't have unpatched security exploits* Don't use Flash Player, use youtube-dl instead for watching streaming videos online* Do not use Google, use DuckDuckGo or StartPage instead* Use a password manager like Keepass or for GNU/Linux users keepassx. Create new passwords for every site that you visit and use a strong password as a master password. A tip for easy remembering of your master password is to use a sentence. "i fucking love cookies and tits!" with extra capital characters etc. is easier to remember than some random characters and long enough to prevent brute force attacks of any kind.* Use the Tor Browser Bundle if you really want to stay anonymous.Firefox====* Go to Preferences -> History and set History to "Never remember history". * See for additional tweaks: https://github.com/amq/firefox-debloat and https://vikingvpn.com/cybersecurity-wiki/browser-security/guide-hardening-mozilla-firefox-for-privacy-and-securityAdd-ons-----------* Use uBlock Origin for preventing tracking etc. Bonus: use hard-mode to manually whitelist external domains on sites. Don't use uBlock but be sure to use uBlock Origin https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Blocking-mode:-hard-mode* HTTPS Everywhere* DecentralEyes: prevents CDN hosting from tracking you (Google for Jquery etc.)* Self Destructing Cookies: only allow cookies that you choose to allowOS==* Encrypt your hard drive or home partition at least* If you use GNU/Linux, you can try to restrict systemd or syslog from logging. * Use a distribution which takes security seriously. Also, be sure that you don't install a lot of things outside the repository. It will cover most of your needs.Real life tips===* Pay with cash if you canFeel free to provide tips to each other comrades!

>I don't want them to see my traffic, or associate that traffic with me.
If using Tor they won't see where your requests are going or their content. But they will see that they're coming from you and can therefore perform a traffic analysis (size, timing).

Hypothetically speaking if they control a large number of Tor exit nodes (really doubt it) they could connect you to the requests you're making. If your requests go over TLS (e.g. HTTPS) after exiting the Tor network then they would learn only about the domains/servers you're visiting, but not the rest of the requests (URL, headers, payload) or responses.

I would worry more about the fact that you're using Tor at all - it could raise some alarms. You can mask that by using a Tor bridge. It's easy to configure in Tor browser, just look at the network settings. You can also request a publicly unknown bridge from Tor project via email.

This would still make your traffic unusual, but unless their detection system is really aggressive it shouldn't flag you.


Do what I did, befriend someone and steal their credentials.


"Well, at least I'm doing something"bros, we can't stop losing.


So restart tor and switch up your VPN. It aint that hard mate.

That doesn't solve the problem, your concurrent streams are still not isolated. It's an idiotic compensation for the problem that you caused yourself for no good reason. The only benefit is that you can now feel really smart about yourself.
Just use Tor, it's both simpler and better.

>"Well, at least I'm doing something"bros, we can't stop losing.
You're losing only because you're blindly following conflicting advice, usually given by people who themselves have barely any idea what they're doing. If you don't know how any of this works then follow the official documentation.

This whole thing reminds of the way consumers make their choices. More features, bigger numbers, it must be better. Just pile it all on, we don't know how it works, but it must be doing something.

Some breakthroughs have led me to finally and definitively abandon microshit's spyware.
I had been staying on wangblows for the audio software but had no idea Linux production had come so far.

My DAW [Renoise] has a fucking excellent native linux version that exceeds WIndows performance in some cases. Grabbing audio to feed into its sampler is easier than ever with youtube-dl and ffmpeg.
yabridge lets you convert Windows VSTs to run through Wine, the ones I've tried have worked seamlessly albeit with a little overhead.
Takes a tiny bit of elbow grease to get it optimized enough for serious use, but it's pretty simple once you get past initial setup and it even supports VST3.

Feels pretty good to be making music on a system I have so much control over, it's actually given me a lot of inspiration to work on new material.
Are you a composer or producer who runs Linux? What's your workflow/software?

Because of some retard trying to run some niche Windows shit on GNU/Linux?


in fairness, there's no real good audio stack in linux especially on the level needed for DAW use, especially thanks to the rabid minimalism and modularity, and there probably never will be
even using something like renoise feels like it's all being done on a foundation of quicksand


bitwig is really good and it just werks on linux


ableton is better


There are a bunch of linux youtubers that produce their videos on Linux, they probably have tutorials on how they do that, and if you copy what they do and use the same or similar hardware as they do, it probably will work on first try.

I think his comment of freedom is wrong, in Linux you really can add any functionality you want, while in windows you just can't. What Microsoft does is lay down a path where a lot of the time "id just worgs" but anybody who wants to go into another direction has to fight with technology on a level that is far worse than anything on the Linux side. There are people on windows that again have to fight with technology just to configure what their default browser is, that is a good indicator that Microsoft is trying to make their path narrower. If the audio stack on Linux sucks then that is cause for constructive criticism, not for tooting the corporate horn.

Has anyone thought of making an app similar to Sefaria but instead of religious texts it has a list of Marxist (and other socialist) texts, basically the kind of stuff you see on Marxists.org?


good bait


The marxists.xyz archive can be accessed by any OPDS-compatible device or app, see https://archive.marxists.xyz/help/opds for info. We're still working on adding basic texts to the archive, see >>>/edu/7066 for more info on the project.

Help a uygha out.

I've been stuck with my gmail account since I was 17 or so, when it first started. I'm trying to find a new online mail provider that
1) is safe
2) close as possible to GNU philosophy
3) not likely to be shut down soon
3.1) preferably is on the rise
4) won't leak my shit to the CIA
5) it's okay if it's Chinese (with Eng interface), because I'm okay with the PRC having access to my shit

(pic randomly chosen)

If you're worried about security you're supposed to encrypt your email no matter what provider you use.


just self host your mail server faggot




No OP but I unironically tried to do that a few years ago, configured a zimbra instance in some throwaway ubuntu server comp I got but after a few weeks the battle against spammers and assorted security threats was too much to handle for my inexperienced ass.

Server admin is hard lol.

Learning from the Era of Ticket Scalping
>Have you ever heard about ticket scalping? This is a practice that dates back to the days of offline ticket sales and live performances.
>Ticket scalping today is a lot more sophisticated. Scalpers use bots and data mining tools to find the most profitable tickets to buy. They then resell those tickets to actual customers with a margin added to the prices.
>The higher the demand for those tickets, the higher the margin will be. A $50 ticket for a live performance can sell for a whopping $2,500 to the right customer. Even smaller margins are lucrative enough when you consider the number of tickets that a scalper can buy and sell.
>Bots make this entire business more scalable too. Rather than manually searching for tickets and buying them at different prices, scalpers can automate the whole process using bots and proxies. Target websites – usually ticket sites – are also monitored more closely.
>Most ticket sites support automated checkouts and digital tickets, allowing bots to parse data from confirmation emails and automatically resell tickets as soon as they are purchased. There is no need to build a manual database of available tickets.

Similar Occurrences
>If the flow of ticket scalping looks familiar, it is because the same method is now being used by sneakerheads who scalp limited edition sneakers from top sites. Rather than manually waiting for a sneaker to become available, scalpers automatically monitor sneaker sites for new releases.
>As soon as the items become available, bots will start generating transactions and using their automated checkout features to snatch sneakers. They can even be programmed to buy a set of sizes or variations depending on availability. Sneaker scalpers can then resell the purchased sneakers at a huge markup.
>This is not a unique occurrence. We are starting to see bots in other markets too, particularly markets where supply is limited. Collectibles, books, even everyday items in short supply are targets for scalping using bots and proxies.

It’s Not Technical
>There are reasons why scalping is becoming more common in today’s market. One of the reasons is the fact thatPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


Most scalpers have insiders helping them get tickets/stuff before anybody else. There's no uber edgy coding going on. It's basically nepotism.


how do you play the game of nepotism ?
can it be negated somehow ? get the nepotanians to rat each other out ?

Remember to dust your motherboard and other components /leftypol/. Been dealing with some problems with my power button lately on my computer and I finally dusted that shit and now it's working great.


Damn, you're right. Thank you, OP


I did so last month and inhaled so much dust during it I was sneezing for a week.


wear your mask :^) I'm serious

Within the past 40 years alone, advancements in microscopic tech have allowed the discovery of dozens to hundreds of new fundamental particles beyond protons neutrons electrons and photons and thousands of new physical phenomena beyond charge fire explosions diffusion force etc. If any sole man ever managed to learn to use even a fraction of the potential tools that could be created from such new particles that man would elevate to god like status within the universe

How so?


You’ve seen the effects of learning to use fire and chemistry on modern life from actual spaceships, to ion thrusters to nuclear weapons, the possibilities of learning to use muons and completely different worlds of physical phenomena at this point could be in the hundreds to thousands of new tech


Prove it, nerd


>area stays the same
>subdivisions continue
>perimeter increases disproportionately to area
>perimeter keeps increasing onwards to infinity
Imagine cutting a cake in half repeatedly, the amount of cake you have stays the same but the perimeter increases as each new cut introduces a new side, like wide the same with your dumbass authors theory meaning unless the area of the box is decreasing your theory doesn’t hold up, and it doesn’t because a circle by Archimedeses own definition is a square expanded to its maximum area

fukk u my waifu will be real. also at least with robot waifus there are people actively constructing one because they actually want to use one, all the while have a sense for how limited current technology is. some people just don't want to interact with human women


>life on the surface of other planets
earthoid thinks he's special and unique lol


Can you not fucking comprehend what I write? Nowhere do I say that its not easier for a worker to do the work in an exosuit than manually. What I argue that in the large-scale, an exosuit wastes labour due to the amount of maintenance work needed to keep it working, as well as labour needed to produce the bloody things and produce the raw materials for them. Things like cranes or excavators literally remove hundreds of workhours and entire work-roles. You can't really do the same with carrying bricks or potatoes efficiently. Well, you can, its called a handcart. What you are proposing is to replace the handcart with an overdesigned, hundreds of times more expensive gadget that requires constant maintenance. To use it would be down-right idiotic. Oh, shit, I also forgot this other posts. An exosuit also needs a fucking powersource as well. Literally Wallace and Gromit shit. Honestly more techies should watch W'nG because its a perfect BTFO ofost modern vaporware.


>but but but my Juicero machine is extremely efficient at squeezing packets!!!1


is this a grammarly ad ?


What smartphone do you have? What you recommend? Also share your recommended apps.

I have a Xiaomi Poco F3, I got it for cheap ($280) and has a lot of good features like 5G, 120HZ AMOLED, NFC, a powerful processor etc I don't plan to buy another one for in the next 4-5 years.

My recommended apps:
>Blokada (to block all ads, doesn't need root)
>f-droid (alt app store).
>Bromite and Fennec Fdroid web browsers
>Libretorrent if you want to torrent on your phone.
>Tachiyomi if you want to read manga.
>Radiodroid for radiostations
>Torbrowser for tor proxy/onion service
>Lucky Patcher if you want to fuck around trying to unlock apps for free (Needs Root)
>MX player for videos, Simple Gallery for images.
>New Pipe or YT Vanced for youtube videos.
>foobar2000 or blackplayer for music

iPhone 8
Whatever the hell is the cheapest and most long lasting


I still have my Mi A1. Still works, just had to change the battery and screen.

I hate the phone market, it's all so fucking stupid, like adding notches and removing jacks so they can give the impression of technological advancement.

I think I might just get a dumbphone and pinebook instead of a smartphone.


Yes, do it yesterday, simple as


Think I'm just gonna trade in my old iPhone for a newer one. I've had so many shitty Android phones in the past, I don't want to go back to that. I'm skeptical of the utility of GraphenOS, what's the threat model here? I mean, I already use Facebook and have an ISP my ass is already bought and sold.


Graphene is more about security than privacy, but in the end they are the same. Google Play Services does not have special privileges like in normal android distributions. You can still use it as normal, I keep it in its own profile, it is sandboxed. Really nice network permissions toggle that works better than Calyx' or other distros. Hardened_malloc is an entirely new memory allocator that is safer. Their patches are sometimes used upstream by Google. The list goes on and on with GOS.

According to them, apple has good security but the trade off of course is Apple ID attaching itself to everything you do. For me, Graphene isn't any more work than any other phone, so I would have no reason to change, but that may not be the case for everyone. Some apps might not work with their implementation of google services, I don't know because I avoid those apps to begin with. I think there's a website that tries to keep this info
