suggestion How about adding a web based code playground for HTML, CSS, JS and if possible PHP, e.t.c to the Explore Features, Won't That Be Nice.


  1. How about adding an infinite loader feature to the real time discussion on the homepage and on statuses for browsers that support it and classic paginations for those that don't. just like FB does.

  2. how about adding vote up and vote down features to comments and status in real time discussion section instead of 'like'. 'like' looks more social but 'vote up & down' more geekish and its widely accepted by programmer's community e.g stackoverflow

Apologies to everyone for my absence in the forums, I am battling with this frontpage something. I want to make it real-time like Facebook so that we can have some more fun. You can see that the theme has changed somewhat - still not perfect though, but we are getting closer by the day.

Errh... Can updated status (Status with new comments added) move to the top than stay down since it's real-time and has the latest update time in DB...

The 'even' and 'odd' padding seems so close. Can you try a custom styling for it to increase the padding. I noticed that the theme style it to

Code:
td, th { padding: .3em .5em; }


You can try leaving the global td and th and styling the individual class [or you can test out with the global td and th to see how much changes it would render]

Code:
.views-field .views-field-nothing { padding: 1.25rem; }


Editing your status, the textarea doesn't auto expand. Check and apply script to render properly.

GOODBYE JAVA! Reading the title of this post; the typical tech Lord is frowning …

GOODBYE JAVA!

Reading the title of this post; the typical tech Lord is frowning his face, wondering what larisoft smoked last, and preparing to leave a few f bombs in the comment section to set the idiot straight. Unfortunately, i haven’t smoked ever. Unfortunately, the f-bombs will be unwarranted. Probably because unfortunately, the post title is true: java is dying!


Does anyone remember what it was like programming in Nigeria between 2009 to 2014? Java was the thing! Nokia phones were everywhere so the go-to language to reach the average joe who, of course, could not afford a symbian phone was: Java! Internet access was still a novelty most offices didnt have so the go-to language to develop portable enterprise applications was: java. And towards the end of the era, a new shiny operating system emerged and changed things so fast we all spinned. And guess what its programming language was? You guessed it! Java!


Everyone was doing java! Those who werent felt insecure. Not knowing java meant you had to turn down several lucrative opportunities. Myself; i was coding java like that’s all there was and till date, i have not invested as much time in any other language as i have in java.


Its 2017 and we are all finding that our java skills are being kept in the shelfs for far too long. It’s becoming one of those things you use on two projects in a whole year (except of course java is your core specialization and you are in an organization that is relatively old).


How did it happen?


  1. Javascript came along and started making trouble:

    Yeah! JAVASCRIPT!


    Javascript first started out as a few lines of code you copied from stackoverflow or you know, wherever. No one really gave it that much attention. All of a sudden; we started seeing more and more of the guy (javascript) on pages that mattered (google, facebook, etc). Then some really troublesome guys went and developed phonegap, you know because they wanted developers who were too dumb to learn java, to be able to program mobile apps.


    At this point, things weren't too roughed up for dear Java yet. Phonegap was still so slow people who used it were simply thought of as lazy. Then it kept getting better. And google released angular. And ionic came with the tide and used angular. Long story short; today, writing native apps with android is usually only for special circumstances.


    Turns out very few android apps are ‘special’. And so a lot of android apps are getting written, but very few of them require hardcore android studio and good old java. Most apps now are fine and fast in javascript and one of its many mobile frameworks.


    Javascript! Who would have thought that? It’s like David killing Goliath!!!


  2. Java maintained a high learning curve even in the face of easy to learn languages like php and python. And ...again: javascript.


    I dont know why the guys managing java let this happen. Till date, using java as a beginner is pretty much as difficult as it was 9 years ago. Java just doesn't care for ‘dumb’ guys.


    For instance, using php for a beginner might be hard since you had to install an awful lot things (Apache, mysql, php, php-cli, etc) but it was simplified by WAAMP and LAAMP. The average joe could just install lammp stack, visit http://localhost and feel like a genius.


    With Java; you had to install jdk. If it didnt come with jre (and it didnt most times), you had to install that one too. And what if your system architecture is x32 and you installed an x64 version? Uuummm...what is he saying? Right? And oh! I forgot, There is java EE and there is java SE. Which one will you be needing? There are books that explain the differences but they are only over 500 pages long.


    Now, we’ve gotten the ground wet a little bit, you have to set variable path (which is not as easy as it sounds, trust me). After that, the installation then begins. You have to choose one of these very very heavy IDEs: ecliipse, netbeans, Intellij. But wait, the beginner still doesnt know what an IDE is. After installing the ide, you have to learn how to use it to build a program.


    At this point; our beginner just gives up and goes to watch...say… Keeping up with the kardishians. Shit is too freaking hard.


    Even C# which is java’s strongest competition is made as easy as milk by visual studio...which simplifies development so much that there are CTOs whom are of the opinion that programmers who use visual studio are not real programmers.



    But java remained consistently difficult to grasp. Gradually, more and more guys were joining the industry and most of them werent geniuses. So our php space kept getting crowded. Today, i cant even write an app in Java anymore because maintaining it will be a nightmare. No one else will be able to maintain the app if am not around. Everyone is all about php/python/node.js these days.



    In conclusion, java is still a respected language which commands the best salaries in today’s industry, but it’s dying. No CTO would rush to implement a program in java without giving it a second and third thought. This means that fewer programs are getting implemented in java. This means that the demand for java is falling. This means there are fewer developers thinking of creating libraries in java (what with all the javascript library madness). This means that java is dying.
