In Topic: All Jokes aside, what is 6/2(1+2)?

Yesterday, 07:00 PM

6 / 2 ( 1 + 2 )

Microsoft Excel says there's a typo in that equation. It assumes you want a * after the first 2 and before the parenthetical, and if you accept that you get 9.

I think the equation would be clearer if it had another set of parentheses in it.

I always find it hard to have a feel of everybody within the first 2 weeks

I have a theory. 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months, 3 years.
For the first 3 days in a new job you fear you're going to be found out to be a total fraud.
After the first 3 days you are just feeling out your new surroundings, getting to know the people and the job.
After the 3rd week, you feel like you're settling into it.
After the 3rd month, you feel like you totally belong.
After the 3rd year, you feel like you own the place.

Honestly, start building skills that are directly related and demonstrable by building a portfolio of games.

Hear, hear.

I'm good at programming my coffee machine, is it enough?
I know that this is just scraps and nowhere near to the level required in the industry...
I spent months trying to firgure things out and implement stuff, now I'm 19 and I spend my days trying to cram irrelevant stuff just to get a letter on a piece of paper; progress...
I'll probably end up flipping burgers anyway

Is this a serious question, or are you just trying to get a flame war started?
Tell you what. I'm closing the thread. You are welcome to start over, without the sarcasm, depression, and doom and gloom. I recommend you read this forum's FAQs before you re-post.
