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?
>>5115 You own a company? And you're a leftist? Based classcuck

New DLC coming for Ostalgie!
5 posts omitted.
But Paradox games are way more complex than Ostalgie.
They should also include the Ethiopian and Somalian situation in Mao's Legacy. In that time period they were having a civil war with a dozen factions.
There also could have been a socialist East African federation if Somalia didn't reject it to pursue "Greater Somalia" and start the Ogaden War.
>>2622 They should have done something closer to a full Asia or LatAm dlc. >Asia <Kampuchea trying to keep itself together in the face of monarchists, /pol/ potoids, and imperialist powers backing them. <Thailand and Vietnamese backed guerrillas <Philippines and the PRC backed NPA at their strongest <Vietnam and DPRK handling the loss of their biggest backer >LatAm Basically this >>3274 >>2715 Would be cool if they have the determination to do Sukarno's Indonesia trying to avoid the military coup.
>>4674 The devs said that Ostalgie and Mao sell very poorly, and you basically want them to make a new DLC (which sell always worse than the game they were made for) with as many countries as there were in Ostalgie without DLC.
whats a good way to acquire political points/political power in Crisis In The Kremlin? I have the other two games and usually fuck up on Ostalgie Berlin Wall and China: Mao's Legacy but Crisis I haven't failed yet but haven't moved much forward.

thinking about playing simcity4 again what mods should i get?
why not cities skylines
>>5398 Get the Colossus Addon Mod that lets buildings rank up bigger than in the base game, that's the coolest one. Also many people swear by the Network Addon Mod but personally I've never really figured out how it works.
>>5398 Also, Simcity 4 Mars is a pretty fun total conversion
>>5405 >Also many people swear by the Network Addon Mod but personally I've never really figured out how it works. same. remember trying it out many years ago and just thinking it was too much for a game that wasn't about roads. Willl try your suggestion

One Piece is leftist
20 posts and 5 images omitted.
This is probably the most obvious reference to communism in One Piece. I don't remember the cover story too well, but it was something about a workers' revolution in a weapons factory.
>>5149 Unfortunately that antagonist was a massive POS
(652.62 KB 942x1010 oda_che.jpg)
>>5386 it doesn't have anything to do with him. He just happens to look like One Piece Che Guevara, now he's in Japan jail. Oda's got a Che poster hanging up in his office, I've said it before in this thread but I found the picture and it's neat to see. His office has a lot of weird bullshit though so it could be a random visual flare type of thing.

Alternative chans Anonymous Comrade 10/27/2019 (Sun) 12:54:10 No. 1648 [Reply] [Last]
Post all obscure and underground imageboards in this thread, the chan must be at least half-dead so no archived chans.
>inb4 'hurr durr don't put muh sekrit klub in the limelight'
The population here is low as it is, there's also a large overlap between this chan and others.
I'll start:

There was this one I faintly remember and I think the theme was either dinosaurs or lizards...

>>5151 >What is the differences between all these places? Different communities, netcodes, history and specifics boards.
>>5176 i am retard what is a netcode and why is it important? What do the different boards tend to have in terms of boards?
https://christchannel.xyz Christian image board.
>>5400 That board is down at the moment and is reporting a 500 error.

What youtubers does leftypol watch? I personally like codys lab and penguinz0.
29 posts and 2 images omitted.
Technology Connections is the only YouTuber I know of who obviously makes money from YouTube but isn't in any way annoying about it. I think because he gives off massive public access TV vibes and doesn't do any advertising of products, he just takes donations and runs their names in the credits at the end without reading them off. Combined with an interesting subject matter, good sense of humor and no hints of anything untoward he's all in all probably one of the best people on the internet today.
Oneyplays, YMS, SuperMega
>>5259 >without eceleb cringe humour >literally called 'cuck philosophy'
>Strange brain parts For a small channel he has really high quality. He covers obscure comics, old indie comics, and the history of some mainstream characters too. If you hate 'capeshit' you still might like his channel because he goes into a lot of hidden 'not traditional super heroes' gems >Comic tropes The same as the previous, but more mainstream. It's still into the obscure, forgeten heroes and bad comics. >Renegade cut The only out right political one. He his media analysis always come out with interesting leftists takes.
>>5353 I think they made the tits of Hotaru too big.

why arent you using Linux dumbass? You have zero excuses
62 posts and 10 images omitted.
>>5389 Yes you do.
Nigger you don't actually use Pop! Do you?
Purely vidya, but every year fewer and fewer games compel me to stay I use linux on my laptop and like it, although I've fucked something up and it eventually crashes out and has to be rebooted every 12 days I tried to go full linux on desktop but a combination of somehow struggling to set up MySQL and there being no good N64 and PS2 emulators on Linux killed it for me

It really says something about Japanese culture that whenever a character suggests that the world shouldn't be run through rigid hierarchies, or voices even the slightest hint of non-nationalist gekokujou ideology, they are always depicted as misguided at best and deranged and dangerous at worst. Right after this scene, the MC does a short speech about how they should work hard to win the competition even though they are weak and lack magic, and the guy goes "oh wow, you're right! We shouldn't try to change the world, let's just do our best and work within the system!" Bootstrapism isn't an American phenomena.
>>5368 Yeah, this is something that pisses me off. Manga and anime aimed at teenagers should be idealist, at least a little bit, but nope: it's always "gotta find my place in society, no matter how fucked up it is". If you're in high school and you've already given up on improving society in the most succdem of manners, you're a tool. Kill la Kill was revolutionary because it showed how "working within the system" makes you the most ferocious defender of the status quo.

So finally reading high school of the dead, lol'd out loud at this.
>>5371 HOTD is pretty funny because it's all exaggerated and on the nose that you can't help but laugh. The author has no idea what subtlety mean. and now that he's dead he can't learn it anymore

>>2726 Still better than Tintin in the lands of the soviets. Christ that was cringe. My country did us a favor censoring that garbage.
>>1424 This should be the separate thread for burger and nonburger /co/ content. What do you guys think about the subsidy in animation in Eastern bloc countries.

Loyal parents who sacrificed so much for the nation Never feared the ultimate fate. Now that the country has become red, who will be its guardian? Our mission, unfinished, may take a thousand years. The struggle tires us, and our hair is grey. You and I, old friends, can we just watch our efforts be washed away?
