:arrow_down: Sponge Staff Changes :arrow_up:

There has been some internal disputes in the last week involving arguments between staff.

The following Staff Members have left Sponge:

  • DarkArcana
  • Disconsented

They will as of right now, not be returning any time soon. This is all I will say on this topic, as to give the staff their privacy.

And other languages, I can recognise what it is doing.
Still a young boy trying to learn. grabs @RobodudeMC’s list and learns them

Well, I can work with PHP, Javascript, VisualBasic quite well.

Then there are some languages I can change some things in the code without messing it all up like Lua, Python.

With a lot of help from the internet, I can write some batch.

Java, CSS, and HTML for me, not much else comes to mind. (btw gj @DotDash u didn’t notify any subscribers. :trollface:)

Summing up coding language is stupid I think, because anyone that knows coding can get some basic understanding of any language. For example if you know C# you will understand java as well.
I would say: I can code, I just don’t know every syntax out of my head :smile:.


A bit of PHP

My main issue with it is that it changes depending on architecture and manufaturer. So I know how Assembly works, but I don’t know for instance ARM Assembly (well atm… Trying to get into it.)

Same, it annoys the living hell out of me. I really need to take a formal class in this if I hope to have a proficient understanding of it. A hello world program is just too complicated i mean look at

section .data
    msg db      "hello, world!"
section .text
    global _start
    mov     rax, 1
    mov     rdi, 1
    mov     rsi, msg
    mov     rdx, 13
    mov    rax, 60
    mov    rdi, 0

on one platform…


print "Hello World!"

on every platform with python installed

cause you can’t just

def awesome(python):
  if python == amazing:
     return "It better be"
  elif python =< awesomeness:
     return "Very Awesome indeed"
     return "boi, your pulling mah strings"

print awesome(yes)

I was going to point out a typo on elif but then I thought of searching and realised it is correct… Felt I needed to confess this :blush:


I know Python, though I am by no means a expert. Currently I am looking into Django, a path that seemed natural for me since I come from HTML/CSS/PHP/JS/etc. :smile:

Also: Python 3 syntax pls? :stuck_out_tongue:


Eh, not too fluent at any one language. I know some Java (I wrote a few basic plugins for Bukkit), and Python. I also know HTML, but that’s a markup language so meh.

Are you serious or kidding?

TIL :open_mouth:

@hmksq I’m serious :smiley: When I was younger, I was disabled to the point to where I had to stay home out of school for 4 years. In such time, I finished HS early, and started coding. Too be honest, if i hadn’t become disabled I would be playing sports most of time time xD

@octoshrimpy Do you know those too??!!!???
