I saw the first episode on Amazon Prime (they have S1 and S2 for free already) and it wasn't too bad - i bit weak on the "real world" computing stuff, but better than Jurassic Park was. It looks like the growing story could be quite good so far. He has weird eyes though...
Is it good? Dunno yet - we'll watch a few more episodes before deciding, but the IMDB[^] score of 8.8 / 152,575 is pretty impressive!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
I have watched the first and second chapters in my last intercontinental flight... my impression...
The story can entertain you quite fine. The personality of the carachter is interesting (a bit weird but still interesting), about the background long term story I can't say much, only 2 chapters so far.
If you don't pay so much attention to the technical side... then you won't get pissed off or disappointed or things like that, at the end... is just a "film" and as such, you will always find misleading / wrong technical background as in every other production for cinema / tv (very few are good researched / accurate)
I don't know you... but I will give a try to the rest of the chapters.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Just started season 2. You only have so much time to devote to TV so need to pick what you watch carefully. This is on my list as it is darkly entertaining. Note that the director spends a lot of money making sure that the code you see on screen is as real as it can be.
I've only watched the first 2 episodes from season 1. I want to like it, but not sure yet. Giving it a few more episodes. BTW, if you haven't caught it yet, check out first season of "Halt and Catch Fire" ( on AMC, I think); other seasons not as good, IMO.
I'm actually thinking of writing an article entitled "Software Engineering is Dead", but I want to ask y'all, when you think of software engineering, how do you practice it in, well, practical terms?
Anything from doing detail design analysis, prototypes (that don't turn into production code), design patterns, high level architectures like messaging, pub/sub, modular, service oriented, async, etc., all are fair game for what, in practice, "engineering" looks like. (Note how I snuck the idea of "high level architecture" into the idea of "engineering".)
I'm also curious, for those with some level of college degree, did college teach you engineering skills, or did you learn them yourself or on the job?
Someone, however thinks it is 'anything helpful to cope with the mess'. So, above all, well documented (or at least heavily commented) API, then, yes, prototyping and testing, and possibly design for testing.
