Why you need a coding community 🔗The one thing that every programmer has in common, whether they’ve only ever implemented a “Hello World” program or they’re considered a “senior” software engineer, is the need to continuously learn.
We’ll keep this announcement short – we’ve moved Qvault.io to Boot.dev! As you know, we’ve been hard at work bootstrapping on online computer science bootcamp.
I’ve reviewed a lot of resumes, both as an engineering manager and in the monthly resume workshops we do in the Boot.
Anyone who’s anyone in the tech world has heard of Python. It’s one of the most popular programming languages in the world, and it’s been near the top of developer popularity rankings for years.
Golang was released in 2012, making it a relatively new language when compared to competitors like Python, which was released nearly two decades prior, yet it’s managed to stay ahead of the game as not only a coveted language by employers, but also loved by programmers.
Quick Answer: Python is one of the easiest coding languages to learn 🔗Python is arguably the easiest programming language for beginners to learn.
We’re starting our first hackathon in the Qvault Discord server on January 17th at 8AM. Everyone is welcome to participate.
Because I’ve had several inquiries on this topic, I thought it would be interesting to publish some information on how the boot.
If you’re looking to improve your coding, there are lots of steps you can take, but the first is focusing on Python best practices.
In our community Discord server, we have two main groups of roles you can take on as a member, earned roles and declared roles.
C# and Python represent the two sides of what it means to be a powerful language.
In Python, an assertion is a statement that confirms something about the state of your program.
While lists aren’t the most efficient data structure if you’ll be doing lots of deleting from the middle, there are definitely good ways to accomplish the task.
Developers love concise code that’s easy to read, and that’s exactly what ternary operators are for.
Let’s go over a few idiomatic ways to remove duplicates from lists in Python. Method #1 - Create a new list (simplest) 🔗This is the easiest algorithm to code, but because it requires creating a new list, also requires more memory and is a bit slower.
When working with files in Python, you’ll often need to check if a file exists before you do anything else with it, such as reading from or writing to it.
Generics in Go have been released with Go 1.18! This is one of the most eagerly-awaited features since the release of the language.
We’re super excited to bring you our next learning track: Gopher Gang. We released our Python Track and Data Structures & Algorithms Track last month, and after such a positive response, we felt we had to do the same with our Golang course content.
There is a common trap that we fall into as developers, and it is believing that because some code “worked” that the code was written “correctly”.
A while back I went through the interview process at a company I won’t name here.
It’s either a blessing or a curse when choosing to learn Python or C++ because there couldn’t be two more opposing languages to compare.
