Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit? Marketing or business mentality? Or just straight up computers?

Personally, I'd say that if you are an outside the box thinker, go with computer science/programming. That way if you ever have an idea for a website, you can build it yourself and be the next Jack Dorsey (or just sit on a cool few mill).

But if you're a bread and butter guy and like to stick to the books, try networking. That way there is always room for growth, and a fundamental IT knowledge is at least a good stepping stone to build and grow from.

And yes, computer science may be harder, but it can be rewarding to see something go from a blank page to a fully dynamic site, all on your own.

Any of you ducks messed with node.js, javascript, express, or anything in that field.

Working on some projects and the teacher is pretty vague with explanations.

Mainly, just don't know what the hell all of these "modules" are useful for. He just introduced them, showed some code using them, and then expects us to expand on that.

Hey could some one check out this shell script I wrote? I am getting an unexpected end of file error.
HTML Code:
#!/bin/sh find_all=false # # Check options inputted by user # case "$1" in -a) find_all=true shift ;; -[!a]) echo "Usage: $0 [-a] commands ... exit 0 ;; *) break ;; esac # # Check every file passed by the user # while [ $# -gt 0 ] do file=$1 exist=false case "$file" in /*) if [ -x $file ] then echo $file fi ;; *) # $1 is a file to search in $PATH IFS=: for dir in $PATH: # #Assigns each word in the word list to the varaible, dir # do if [ -z "$dir" ] then dir="." fi # # Check if the file is executable and in the $dir # if [ -x "$dir/$file" ] then echo "$dir/$file" exist=true if [ "$find_all" != true ] then break # # Stop searching and display first result if -a is inputted # fi fi done ;; esac if [ "$exist" = false ] then echo $file not found fi shift # #shifts the next arguement into the $1 position for the outer do loop # done

I am not familiar with (Power?)Shell, however my experience with C# and VB would leave me to believe you're not incrementing the next value in the recordset/array at the Shift. In fact, im not even 100% you're establishing an array to loop through there.

Perhaps this link might be of some help: http://www.powershellpro.com/powersh...c-using-loops/

I've written a few small apps in node. What do you want to know? It's only good for evented I/O so if you're writing something like a chat server it works well. It's way overhyped right now so your teacher probably spends too much time on HackerNews.

For starters, you didn't close the double-quotes on this line
Code:
echo "Usage: $0 [-a] commands ...

What makes you say it is only good for event driven programming?

It is an asynchronous language, like ruby, python, actionscript, go, dart, etc...
It is a great platform for building a static website, but it is definitely geared towards building large, scalable, dynamic applications.

Node scales really well, has enormous community support, and enables people to write their entire application (services, application and front end) in one language (and thus promotes code sharing).

Actually, /bin/sh is a sym link to the system's default shell, so it's not always Bourne shell.

That's why it's generally a bad idea to use /bin/sh in the hashbang, because it isn't portable. It's best to instead use a path to an actual shell.

It's decent but the scaling will bite you in the *** in industry .


Check out meteor way easier to learn way easier to deploy and it's built on top of it . Great for classroom use

Heh, little late... that class is over with and I was able to get most of it figured out for the assignments.

Now I'm working with Unity / C# to make a game in a few weeks, and some CUDA C/C++ for another class on parallel programming with GPUs.

Ok so Ive been developing some sites for a little while but theyve all been for school and I want to make a more personal site for fun and potentially profit.

Problem is the idea bank has been a little slow for me but Im working on it. Anyway I just wanted to run this ideas past the general public and see what you guys thought.

1st: Ever been to a stoplight party. Green = single, wants to have fun, etc. Red = taken, doesnt really want to interact, etc. Yellow = somewhere in between.

I was thinking about making a site using google maps to overlay markers of where people are, some info about them (interests, basic info, characteristics, etc.) and the markers could be the little stoplights. People with green want you to come interact with them. Red people are busy. You get the idea, further I get in the more features there could be like chats, premium users, whatever.

Only problems are that I dont know if there would really be interest with the hindreds of other meet people sites and the coding would be massive with the individual user accounts with all of their info. May be a tad out of my league.

2nd: This one is a little more of a crazy idea still using google Api but it would certainly be more unique if it panned out. It would a site in which people could use to find drug dealers (yah you read that right). Dealers could put up markers at meeting locations, prices, users could have rating systems (5 star dealer). The markers could be what theyre selling (pot leaf, pills, whatever else I want to include).

Obvious issues are the legality (for me, obviously the users arent being legal), and whether the users would use it because cops could easily use it. Buttt, I think it would be a fun site to make both as a social experiment to see if people would actually use it, and because lets be honest crazier things have been successful.

Sooo, your thoughts and opinions on either of these??
