I'm a firm believer that if you're having a problem writing your code, it is because you wrote bad pseudocode. Maybe it didn't have enough detail or a bad layout. Or maybe I ... I mean you ... you just don't know what you are doing. I bring this up because I wasted three hours … Continue reading Project Euler #3 BAD Pseudocode

The Challenge The prime factors of 13195 are 5, 7, 13 and 29. What is the largest prime factor of the number 600851475143 ? So, this would probably be a good case study in making a basic program and then an optimized one with threading/channels (Is that what Go calls them?) Maybe a good time … Continue reading Project Euler #3 Pseudocode

In all seven languages in one night! Hell yeah! I still don't have enough data in Gitlab to start crutching some analytics though. In other news I caught with the Game Dev Quest podcast. I found it very motivational and like they say, "If they can do it, so can you." I think I'm going … Continue reading Finished up Euler #2 in ???

The Challenge Each new term in the Fibonacci sequence is generated by adding the previous two terms. By starting with 1 and 2, the first 10 terms will be: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, ... By considering the terms in the Fibonacci sequence whose values do not exceed four million, … Continue reading Project Euler #2 Pseudocode

Go was interesting, some of the assignments are wacky but over all pretty easy. JavaScript ... of JS ... I don't know why even the simplest of things in JS cause me issues. This time, I was trying to use a while/if loop instead of a for/if loop.

That is PHP, Python, and Perl. Turned out to be a lot easier than I thought. Of course these are just simple iteration loops over number ranges and some basic math. But finished three in one day ... plus did all the GitLab management stuff. I also learned I can get by pretty well with just … Continue reading Finished up Euler #1 for three Ps

I think I'm stating to get the hang of this. You can create a Merge Request directly from the Issue page. This creates both a Merge Request AND a new branch. Then you grab that branch, do work ... do work, commit to local, and push up. Don't forget to tag the commit with the … Continue reading GitLab Workflow update 2
