That's why they invented backslash. So 113355 could be split sensibly. 113\355 About 60 years ago I memorised 40 odd digits of π A spot check says I've still got 19 stashed in some convoluted fold of grey stuff.

Hello I am Miss Bad Wolf. I am trying to find a web forum for programmers. I used to to be a programmer but that was a decade ago. I have an idea of a software I want to make but trying to figure out where to start.
Start by working out what you know, and what you need to learn. 10 years is a long time, and things change - so you need to work out what environment you need to code for, because that will determine the languages and frameworks you will have to understand.
It all depends on what you want to do, you should provide more details so we can give better advice.
Here is a nice site with recommendations: https://www.slant.co/tags/development
I don't agree with all recommendations though, e.g. Python scores very high, but I think it's way too slow for many purposes.
I agree concerning Python … (I am not that far yet to talk about performance, it's the syntax which I cannot get used to, having FORTRAN/C++/C# background...). It would be interesting to see a non-biased comparison of "capabilities" between Python and C#, BR
True … and in the meantime I found a comparison on "Slant"
(funny thing … I see it only now that I am referring to the same website … ) https://www.slant.co/versus/110/115/~python_vs_c
which seems unbiased as it points out some disadvantages of Python, like
"...Con: Inelegant and messy language design …"
"...Con: Significant whitespace ..."
This weakens their suggestion to use Python as a 1st programming language to study…
C# is probably better for this …
The tool set hasn't changed much - Microsoft still releases stuff before it's ready from prime time, refuses to address bugs in those products, and abandons frameworks shortly after they almost become ubiquitous. In that regard, you ain't missed much.
The only things that have changed are bizarre and pointless updates to C# (mostly in an aggravating attempt to illustrate that Microsoft is somehow still on the cutting edge).
