Hello, my name is Luis. I'm from Colombia. I'm an electronic engineer but I love to code. I'm not a pro in this, but I try my best to learn every day. I'm learning Angular 6 right now. My favorite non-coding hobby is perhaps to travel. That's it, thanks a lot.

Saludos Luis!
I'm a developer but I'm in love with embedded dev, embedded Linux, microcontrollers and such (ST32 HAL is beautiful in my opinion!)

Anyways, welcome!

here's one way:

const myFunc = (number) => 
  number === 1 ? 0 : number === 0 ? 1 : null;

myFunc(1)
// 0

myFunc(0)
// 1

myFunc(2)
// null

Hi Sir, Can You answer this question??
Write a vanilla javascript program that returns 0 when input is 1 and 1 when input is 0. Do not use if, for, while, switch, do statements. Write as many implementation as you can think of (minimum 4 ways).

Hello. Well, I think this is it:

f1 = (input) => { return (1+input)%2 };

f1(0); // 1
f1(1); // 0

f2 = (input) => { return (1-input)%2 };

f2(0); // 1
f2(1); // 0

f3 = (input) => { return ~input&1 };

f3(0); // 1
f3(1); // 0

f4 = (input) => { return +!input };

f4(0); // 1
f4(1); // 0

I'm waiting for your comments about it. Thank you.

That sounds like a lot of fun I'm the CEO of a company and I'm not very good at programming the software firm that I developed we have over 300 developers so I don't really have to be good at coding but I have to be good at Concepts and business management but I'm really good at reading people being able to read people is really important in software development and business which is what I excel in I do code for fun with unity and JavaScript. I really should be better at coding but when you have 300 software engineers and you an American company it gives you a lot of clout and imagination to make your ideas come to life rapidly started a game development company with my four Sons because teaching him about business and technology. I thought was really important for what better way to do that than to teach business Concepts and basic development then to make your own games.

Matthew Hudson

Programming can have a steep learning curve. Don't let that discourage you.
For starters:
-Pick ONE language to start with.
-WRITE lots of code. If you don't know what to write, try Project Euler. They have many small puzzles to solve.
-READ other people's code.

Hi all, I've been coding since 1996 and am currently overwhelmed by the many different frameworks and tech stacks. Even in Python (Why use asyncio instead of concurrent?). Same reason I quit Magic: The Gathering for 15 years when phasing was added after cumulative upkeep and one had to memorize those rules.

Kevin Cocquyt

Been working in the IT business since 2001 but never felt too confident to share my knowledge with the rest of the community. Started out programming cash registers using proprietary software, dipped my toes into .NET on my next job when it first came out but the next couple of years were mostly building webforms (just forms!) so not that exciting. Tried to go into consultancy next to experience newer things but, except for 1 excellent job (before I went on a world trip), never really got me anywhere until I found my current (fixed) job. Assisted in introducing .NET MVC into the company, been able to learn on the job and applying the latest in tech, project after project... Azure, JS frameworks as Knockout and Vue, self-hosted services... Always after extensive research about whether we could/should use it or not, creating a fond knowledge about different kinds of things, resulting in enough confidence to start sharing stuff. Hopefully, this will last as other (skilled) developers will eventually review the things I will write :)

PS: About my favorite non-coding hobby. That would be ice-hockey, active as a goalie and passive as a crazy San Jose Sharks fan.

I've set out to move beyond my comfort zone, taking coding seriously, thereby becoming a full-stack web developer! I'm learning JavaScript right now, NodeJS will be next.

skydivedad profile image

Hi Gang my name is Paul but my friends call me Skydivedad. I made my first Skydive in 1976 as a member of the U.S. Army (Airborne Infantry, HdQtrs HdQtrs 525 Military Intelligence Co. 18th Airborne Corp also known as the Sky Dragons) and have accumulated 2562 Civilian and 86 Military Jumps. I am a Master Licensed Skydiver in good standing by the United States Parachute Association, our governing body here in the States. All my jumps are logged in my log book and verified by signature and license number of a fellow USPA Member/Licensed Skydivers or Pilots who witnessed or participated in the skydive. I have skydives logged in 28 different States, 12 Countries and on 4 different Continents (North & South America, Europe and Asia working on adding Africa). Each and everyone of my skydives (other than the Military Jumps) were Fun and never for money. I learned early on not to mix my Sport and my livelihood. I participated in 2 Skydiving World Record attempts neither of which were successful records but a hell of a lot of fun. World Class Level Skydiving and World/Master Level Programming share many of the same necessary traits such as continuous discipline, ongoing continuous learning & training, a constant stream of new technologies, tools and techniques, a never quit attitude is an absolute must, overcoming fear especially when the aircrafts door is opened at 20,000 feet and you're first out as a floater actually hanging on outside the plane waiting for the green light which you can't see so you rely on your teammates inside (Team work is so important in Skydiving where mistakes doing a 200 MPH head down formation dive can break bones and other such things. This Sport requires a sort of resolve that only comes with experience, which only comes from exiting the aircraft when the light turns green, this is just like the sort of resolve I encounter with the World's top Developers. Developers/Programmers like Skydivers always look to improve and aren't afraid of painful honest self evaluations because they realize it is the only way forward.
(My answer to question number 3 above)

I've been lurking this site for a while now as I'm not much of a joiner (30+ years in aerospace development tends to jade oneself) but after realizing this is a really worthwhile site with a genuine mission to advance my fellow Devs and Programmers I joined as a Patron. My hope is to become a positive and helpful member whenever I can and to realize I gain most by giving most!
All The Best
Paul
