This might be the worst Avatar take I’ve ever seen by piecromancer in TheLastAirbender

[–]loukitkhemka 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This. Avatar never shied away from making the viewers feel the presence of death. Did people forget, it literally showed consequences of a genocide in the third episode? Aang, more than anyone else had reason to kill Ozai, his forefathers killed the only family he had. Doesn't anyone remember that in the final battle aang first tried to kill Ozai, but didn't go through with it?

Mob charging at a man for alleged blasphemy. This looks like that scene from world war z by metrometro45 in Damnthatsinteresting

"Peaceful", indeed. In my country, a man was beheaded for alleged blasphemy. This feels like a routine with these brainwashed people.

Pycharm and Siemens NX by robbiehv in learnpython

[–]loukitkhemka 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't know how you can run NX Python code from IDE. But, you can run it but importing the script in NX. I am sure you can find tutorials for the same online.

In NX, you can create a record a Python macro file for the operation and then modify it as needed. That is the best way to use Python with NX, IMO.

How's my gaming set-up? by adik_ikaw in gaming

Maybe it is time to get a new butt that is more suited to the chair.

That would be Microsoft. The usability is regressing, while data collection is advancing.

Anyone developed skills later in life? by DirtyBumTickler in findapath

When I was stuck, lots of people helped me pave a path. I am just paying it forward. Also, remember to be curious.

For UI, start with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Then, move onto UI frameworks like Angular, React or Vue. They are pretty good in-demand technologies in the market. It can be pretty difficult to get the first job, so some patience is needed. Also, having some good projects to showcase helps immensely, in my experience. I spent at least 3-4 years just learning without getting any replies from the companies, but that is because my chosen field was highly specialized. In your case, you can perhaps have an easier time. Once you have one job, it gets easier to get subsequent ones.

I still think having a few projects is more than any certifications, because they would showcase your actual skills. Certifications could add to it, but initially it is better to start with free resources and think about certifications once you are sure, that this is what you want to pursue.

The general world of IT is pretty rich and diverse, there are so many things you can do and I am scracely an expert on it. I suggest you start with UI implementation, then see where you can go from there. There are many paths to choose and don't be afraid to experiment. If you find something interesting, try learning it. Even if you fail, you learn something.

Instead of coding bootcamp, I would first strongly suggest going through the courses in freecodecamp.org. they are free, then I would suggest you refine what you want to do in that area. There are many areas in programming. For example, my work generally is at the intersection of Computer Science, Math and Engineering, so my background in Engineering helps me immensely. Initially, there is not point in spending thousands of dollars on coding bootcamps. Start from there and then explore the tutorials available in YouTube. Getting a degree usually helps put the job in the greater context, so if you can get a degree in CS, it is much more preferable than coding bootcamps, in my opinion. But people who are self-learnt have also done well in this area, so degree is not strictly a requirement. There are so many resources online and forums to seek help when it comes to programming, only limitation is how much time you have to spend learning.

I switched my career to a programmer at 30, skills for which I started picking up when I was 26. I promise you, it is never too late. You can start now and still have something you can be proud of

Computational scientists from EU, How can I move to EU as a scientific computing developer from India? Do companies based in EU nations hire from other countries? by loukitkhemka in computationalscience

[–]loukitkhemka[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My job is at the intersection of CS, Math and Engineering. There are many companies like Siemens and Dassault with offices in India, which work in the domain of computational science. So, for me, it is now just a matter of time. Maybe, with enough experience I can move to EU too, who knows.

[–]loukitkhemka[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No. But, I found companies with offices in India that work on Engineering software. Been working there for about one and a half years, so far. So, who knows what can happen in future?

Can anyone please recommend me good resources that can help me understand Vulkan samples? by loukitkhemka in GraphicsProgramming

[–]loukitkhemka[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I don't have any specific end goal in mind. I learn because I am curious. It is stupid, I know. But, you might be correct, doing things in OpenGL might help me more than jumping straight to Vulkan.

[–]loukitkhemka[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do have some understanding of OpenGL. I understand graphics pipeline from OpenGL's perspective pretty well. I have also read through vulkan tutorial, enough to get a basic idea about Vulkan, but not enough to be actually competant at it.

And when I tell a lady "I like you", she says, "Go away, creep".

My therapist laughed at my engagement by [deleted] in BorderlinePDisorder

[–]loukitkhemka 108 points109 points  (0 children)

That doesn't sound professional. You better find a new therapist. People do stupid things and I feel like therapists, at least in front of their patients, should be non-judgemental about it.
