Welcome to the /tech/nology board.
After the previous site disappeared I talked with the admin and we've decided to join spacechan.

You can help by copying old threads over and of course creating new threads.

this css is alright but I hope we have the option of using the css from nextchan at some point it was fun!
It is known very well that Donald Knuth is smart as fuck.

But hip as well.

Post documents related to compilers.

What web browser do you use? I recently installed ungoogled chromium and it works amazing! On top of that, as the name suggests, it disconnects everything related to google, and it also sets duckduckgo as the default search engine, meaning google won't be able to spy on you!
also a privacy-friendly chrome fork

My paranoia won't let me use things that google contribooted to. I use opera, which isn't much better ethically speaking. It works ok. It's got a couple interesting features, but I feel like it's mostly theater. imo there is no good browsers and it's disappointing. Everything is either bloated gecko, spyware webkit, or outdated crap. Even roll your own pretty much forces you to use webkit unless you want to rewrite an interpreter for every single html tag.
Opera was its own thing but today it's google chrome with a few extra features.
I use Pale Moon on pc and Fennec on phone

Oi vey! (((Space))) needs those jewgle shekels, goyim! Don't worry, your data is safe and protected, we schwear!
Spacechan's alway used Google Analytics since spacechan's actually an experimental chan. Just use uBlock origin which blocks Analytics by default.


kek. Google analytics doesn't make the site money. What makes the site money but sadly doesn't is A-ads.
>Spacechan's alway used Google Analytics
Isn't there a privacy-friendly alternative for this?
I'm willing to hear it if there is.
Just wanna see what boards are popular and GA was my first option.

How does a complete noob get into programming? I want to start with websites since I figured it would be easier.
Do I learn HTML first or CSS first?
Learn PHP first,
Then focus on HTML and lastly CSS.
CSS is just eyecandy and positioning.
While HTML is Layout and PHP is backend logic.

Thank you very much! I will take a look at those things.

>>136 is correct, but I think you'll find it good to poke around html already while learning php. Make a thing and make it do something.

I find it helpful to get a few good scripts together and then build off of them. Basically make your own examples.
HTML first. it's really simple so don't waste too much time with it. it will take you a few hours at most to get the basics. ignore anything that has to do with setting HTML attributes. nobody does it like that. use CSS instead. figure out how .classes and #ids work. play around with it for a day or two, then you're done. you can make a static website. look up "best practices" because slavishly following them is 90% of what it means to be a web developer.
next, learn to program. i'd go with javascript instead of PHP because (1) you're going to probably need it for client-side code anyway and (2) PHP backends are dying out and being replaced by node.js as we speak.
i don't know if web dev or programming is more important to you, but that will determine where you go next. for web dev, learn networking and database shit (SQL, DNS, HTTP, UDP/TCP/IP) and get good at javascript. for programming, just start picking languages you think you'd use and learn them.

Only Microkernels up in this bitch Zero Cool 07/14/2018 (Sat) 16:23:16 No. 131 [Reply]
Guys I have been evangelised by not GNU Hurd but Andy Tannembaum's amazing work on MINIX 3 to create a usable microkernel-based operating system. Share your views.

Just saying I love compilers. Wrote a small one too once.

You should recommend me some books. I like this one. Skimmed through it.

It is a keeper.
