let's talk about web development. i have skills in HTML CSS and Javascript as a hobbyst. i want to change career. https://careerfoundry.com/ what does /hobby/ think of this course? relatable? what are the skills necessary to land a developer job? what do you guys think of this: https://techcrunch.com/2016/05/10/please-dont-learn-to-code/ is psychological terrorism? the market it's full or there are possibilities to be employed even if you don't have a college degree? what is going on actually in the industry? everything related to web development.
If you're an OK web developer, you've read stuff about writing clean code, and are constantly thinking about how you could've made your work cleaner, there is more than enough work. I know a lot of developers, most of them are mediocre and I wouldn't hire them at my own company. 20% are really bad, 80% are mediocre at best, 20% are good and I would hire them. Of around 50-80 developers that I know, only 1 has a shitty paying job. The rest have jobs that pay pretty good. None have trouble finding jobs. I've tried scouting for frontend developers, there are none that actually know how to code, 90% of them bullshit their way through jobs and are very very unkowledgable about the craft. I suck at frontend development, and I still know more than they do. There's a shit ton of jobs out there and not enough developers, let alone competent ones. Finally, to become a good developer, you have to practice a lot. The best practice comes from work. Don't be scared of asking for jobs that don't pay well at first.

Instead of buying a course you could try pirating it. if you can't get a VPN try direct downloading. You can find a bunch of sites hosting rapidgator, nitroflare, etc. Just use duck duck go to search 'Rapidgator/nitroflare java tutorial' The best thing to do is install Jdownloader2 and let the downloads play in the background. If you have to buy a premium account use link snappy >https://www.tutorial-dl.com/?s=html If you don't want to pirate you can try edx free courses or 'free CS degree' list made online >https://www.edx.org/learn/html >https://github.com/ossu/computer-science Also pic related is a file sharing group I'm in. You can't get invited, but I can post some courses here as mega links
>>5414 Are any of these courses good? I feel a lot of them are shit. Related: does anyone know good resources to learn web development for people who already know how to code?

How to set up linux for tor usage. Comrade 08/06/2019 (Tue) 23:50:13 No. 600 [Reply] [Last]
I posted this in another thread but I think it deserves its own thread.

I've been seeing a lot of people saying that installing tor is super hard and difficult, and, even if you use windows it's not that hard. All you have to do is install the tor browser and go into the browser bundle files and run the executable for tor, or, just use the browser bundle.

Like it's not hard at all.

But, being the pros (and dirty commies that we are) we don't use fucking bourgeois Microsoft.

So, I've set up a super simple and comprehensive guide to installing and using tor like a pro on Linux.

This is why we use Linux.

STEP ONE:

Downloading tor:

ctrl+alt+t: Open terminal:

Sudo apt install tor
sudo service tor start

STEP TWO:

Downloading and setting up privoxy.
sudo apt install privoxy

Edit the config file:

vim /etc/privoxy/config

(If you don't have vim sudo apt install vim)

add in text at the bottom:
(vim insert mode: press I)

forward-socks5 .onion 127.0.0.1 9050

(press escape)

Type :wq (write quite)

Done, ammo loaded cannons ready to fire.

STEP THREE:

Set up firefox to use tor:

about:preferences: Network settings, Use custom proxy

(Privoxy runs on port 8118) 127.0.0.1 8118
Check off "Use this proxy for all protocols"

Done.

Takes literally 5 seconds and you don't have to inconvenience yourself by downloading a whole brand new fucking browser ONLY for the simple task of bouncing around encrypted packets through a bunch of proxies.

You also don't have to live with the hellscape that is Microsoft and the billions of exploits and bugs in and written for it. (Not to mention back doors.)

And before anyone starts bitching; Setting up firefox for privacy isn't that difficult.

Basically turn off all telemetry and geo location, referer headers (but you will need http refer headers for 8chan) and some other shit, Guide here:

https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/blog/2018/09/firefox-hardening-guide/

But honestly none of that even matters unless you are a windows user or a pedophile and let's hope you aren't either one of those.

Have a nice day.

>>5254 ITT: Tor noobs who don't understand tor. having control of an exit node by itself is about as useful as having no legs. In order to be effective you need access to both an entry and exit node so you can do timing correlation attacks and that is much MUCH more difficult and costly. >>5243 OP here, I make suggestions about hardening firefox. If you want to use normal tor browser that is fine, but, you are pretty limited on what you can do with it, also, you can't use I2P, freenet, or Zeronet with it, so, might has well learn to harden firefox.
>>5255 The NSA has a huge budget and therefore can do timing corellation attacks, also those aren't the only attacks they can pull off. I know that you can't do much with just an exit node, the problem is that it's very easy and cheap for the NSA to buy lots of compromized nodes in a lot of countries, so it's more likely that the will not only have an exit node. If you take a look at the tor metrics you will see that the vast majority of the nodes are in the 14 eyes countries, aka countries that the NSA is authorized to operate. If you connect to the tor network with the tor rowser you can see which tor nodes you are using, take a look, it's more than likely that at least two of the nodes you are connecting to are located within the 14 eyes.
>>5261 Yeah bu8t the way tor opperates is it randomly decifers what entry node you are going to be using, also, there are bridges, also, tor entry nodes are protected and legitimized by tor administrators themselves. That's why they call them Guard nodes. Do you know the ammount of man power it would take to corrilate an entry and exit node? The NSA would have to already have you as a target and some how know and control the guard node that you are connecting through. Very unlikely.
(507.91 KB Dingledine.pdf)
>>5268 where did you get that tor guard nodes are legitimized by the tor staff? All it says in the tor wiki is "To become a guard, a relay has to be stable and fast (at least 2MByte/s) otherwise it will remain a middle relay." In fact one of the reasons why tor's guard nodes stay the same for some period of time is to minimize the risk of falling on an exit node controlled by people with malicious intent i.e. governments, read the attached pdf. Also the NSA has a brand new facility in utah to analyze and decrypt data, some of it definitely caught in tor. As for corrilating a guard and an exit node, depending on the number of controlled nodes they have could happen at random, without them having to do pretty much anything.
>>5282 Yeah but the guard relays have to actually be chosen to be put on the network and used as a guard relay. They are trusted relays. That's how they become guard relays. There is a talk that ISIS does about on youtube. I haven't watched it in quite a while, but, it's the only lecture she has ion youtube. Decyrpting data is also, impossible, unless these people have quantum computers, which, they may, but, with the information I have I don't think that is going to happen. That's why no one can point to a time the actual tor network itself has faltered. If you can I would like too see it.

With the official locking of >>>/tech/ I'm moving my development log thread here. Feel free to ask questions, make comments, or pass on your suggestions. Much of the template is now complete, the CSS is responsive, usable on every browser that has rem support, and only 3815 bytes. There is still some work to be done which I'll mention in a reply following this. As it stands the plan is to start programming the back-end in OCaml this Monday leaving the finishing touches in the front-end for a later date.

front-end principles
The site should be minimalist. Adding elements unnecessarily makes everything more difficult to implement for and slower.

The site should be responsive. I don't own a device with a touchscreen, but they are omnipresent, and there is no reason that you shouldn't be able to use a website with your touchscreen device well.

The site should be compatible. I'd like to see support for more or less every desktop platform since ~2000 (this is easily done with MyPal PaleMoon, and TenFourFox) and more or less every "smart device" ever.

specifics
Text formatting should be subtle and compose as expected. There should be nothing that would feel be out of place in a book or article.

Web-fonts should not be used. Web-fonts don't improve the usability of the site but increase bandwidth usage and hinder performance for users.

JavaScript should only be used for progressive enhancements and as much of the site as possible should work without it. A Complete list of features which will require JavaScript are: automatic copying of text into the reply form, automatic refreshing of the page along with title notifications, and moving the second reply form.

OP is trying to make a new imageboard sowftware, If you want to make oneyourself, try using LynxChan
It's amusing to me that the formatting on this site managed to become even more broken, and that this somehow managed to effect posts already stored in the database; this thread is hideous now. Anyway I made a good bit more progress on this project but decided to abandon it. My justification was that while the left needs to establish new hegemonic institutions, of which social-media is probably the strongest modern example, these institutions are worthless unless you're willing to use the power these institutions hold to enforce your will, and I simply don't have the time to realistically do this. Another issue is that the internet probably reflecting modern cultural trends (as promoted by the bourgeoisie) is hedonist and obsessed with the spectacle (not to mention least common denominator politics like social democracy), these cultural traits would be very difficult to overcome, and require rules that would be especially costly to enforce. For now I'm going to be focusing on improving my skills, I've recently been studying GADTs, existential types, type-level programming, eta-reduction and all sorts of interesting things in addition to my standard mathematics studies, hopefully my improved skills will be useful to us in the future. In any case, I will likely stop posting on this forum or any other forum, and it's fair to assume that any posts from this point on anywhere on the internet are not me. I wish you all the best, good bye. >>3346 >hey I haven't read the thread, but, how hard is it? It's a pretty simple web application, not particularly difficult so long as you don't obsesses over the details (which I tend to do). I'd only ever made two static sites before this and I was still able to make CSS that was superior to any imageboard I was able to find, and the backend was very clean if incomplete despite my programming experience having nothing to do with the internet. >>3347 >OP is trying to make a new imageboard sowftware, If you want to make one yourself, try using LynxChan. Just to be clear using LynxChan isn't creating a new image-board engine, which was my intent.
>>5042 Sad to hear that, good luck on your next projects anon tho >Just to be clear using LynxChan isn't creating a new image-board engine, which was my intent. Oh yeah I know, I was just telling him to use it if he wants to make a new imageboard

Hey you! Imagine it's Christmas/Kwanzaa/the Jew thing one year from now and you are sitting at the table with your family and you introduce your girlfriend/boyfriend to them. Let's talk about audio recognition and text-to-speech software, chatbots, and what other functions a robot friend should have. Clock? Vacuum cleaner? I just want to make clear one thing right at the start: This is not a sexbot thread. Building a sexbot looks like an awesome quest to many, but I realized it's a pointless one because of Anon's Law: Any AI advanced enough to attract me like a human-flesh character wouldn't want to have sex with me anyway.

Since non-human animals can do the "task" of companionship and people have lower expectations in terms of mental complexity when dealing with animals, a robot pet looks like the more achievable approach for those who want to build a companion robot. People living in cities may prefer a robot pet to an actual animal since there's a lack of open spaces. Indoors life means less demanding design requirements: less extreme temperature range than outside, flat ground, no rain. With that established I propose… opeNeko Picture a thing looking like a black cat, but a non-furry version with a more geometric shape. The head is a perfect orb with triangle ears and big expressive eye-lights with brows showing a variety of emotions (and also battery status). When the head moves what actually happens is that the eye-lights that are under the orb and shining through it are moving around and the ears are moved by magnets under the surface in tandem with the eyes while the orb is still. CatControl: A wristwatch with a few extra functions to control the cat… well actually that's just marketing hyperbole. If you could perfectly control the cat-robot, it wouldn't be very cat-like. You can influence where the cat goes by projecting a light, you can also pause or mute the cat. I'm unsure about what else you can do with it, but I'm certain you can't control its facial expressions. The cat knows when you use this. Using cat controls excessively can get a very unhappy reaction. CatClock: Sitting upright in its docking station and with the wristwatch around its neck, it functions like a clock. CatClean: Imagine something looking somewhat like a Roomba – and it basically is a Roomba, except the cat pilots it. I wonder what the tail could be like: Variable length? Attachable to things to drag them behind? Used like a periscope? There are LED sticks out there that can spell out a message while the stick swings back and forth, hmmm…
>>4709 What is the consensus here on the Chinese room arguments? Does it have any basis on the difference of sentient AIs and simulation of them? Or the the concept of "being self-aware" a spook in of itself?
>>4895 Suppose some super-special Startrek-science device could target a random molecule in your body and delete it. Even in your *spooky music* braaaaaaaaaaaaiiiin. One or two molecules, would that make any practical difference for your life? I don't believe it. Likewise, a room full of people who follow convoluted instructions that in the aggregate amount to an ability to process and answer a question in Chinese can be thought of as a brain of sorts, even if no single person in it is able to understand the conversation. The room and the people within it as a whole have that particular intelligence, one must suffer from bourgie ultra-individualism to not get that. We don't need to think of some hypothetical room, there are many big projects existing in the real world that are only possible due to intelligent group activity. Group intelligence exists and it can be a quite distinct phenomenon from individual intelligence (so that describing that as merely thinking faster doesn't properly describe what happens at the group level, as is obvious to children – though not necessarily to philosophy professors). Ah, you might say, this is not sufficient as a rebuttal, since the original Chinese-room argument is about a single person following rules without understanding Chinese… But this is false. It just isn't synchronous group work. Somebody designed the things that the person in the room works with in order to answer. To say that the Chinese room (meaning the person and the human-made tools together) can't answer in Chinese in that story would be wrong, it is established in the story that it happens. And to claim in protest against my assertion that the room gets Chinese that this or that element of the Chinese room doesn't understand and so the room can't understand amounts to saying that you can't truly be aware of this or that because not every molecule in your brain is aware of that, or that a rock band can't be the creators of a song because no individual in the band knows how to play each instrument the band plays in the song, etc.
>>4908 One more paragraph: All what the muh-Chinese-room AI skeptic does is pointing at one screw of the robot, asserts that the screw by itself is pretty stupid (fair enough), and then calls that one screw the robot, and asserts the robot can't be truly intelligent. But just like that, you can point at particles of him and call them stupid. Particle 1 is stupid by itself, particle 2 is stupid by itself, particle 84785798375899748471987498479857 is stupid by itself. Adding zeros together makes zero in sum. You are stupid QED.

How to edit video well Anonymous Comrade 01/02/2020 (Thu) 10:51:11 No. 4883 [Reply] [Last]
I need tutorials on how to edit video. Free (or cracked) software, how to mix sound well. What is the tool with the most used friendly design and stuff? Need it for making propaganda videos.
>>4883 Just get Sony Vegas or Adobe Premier Pro. I used Sony Vegas with almost no experience back in the day and it worked for me. Free alternatives but for simpler stuff: ffmpeg, for splicing two videos together or putting one sound file over a picture and requires commands. Aegisub to put text on screen and Virtualdub to encode.
For video-editing I suggest Edius 6.5, it's got the same advanced features as adobe but is much faster since its less abusive on the memory during editing.
Pirate Sony Vegas.
