The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
We've rolled the dice and today's lucky spot prize winner of the Summer Fun with Arduino Challenge is Kornfeld Eliyahu Peter. You’re going to love the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ starter kit coming your way soon!
As you may have seen in today's Daily Build newsletter, we've decided to throw in a bonus prize for our article writers (challenges 2 and 3). We're giving away a Raspberry Pi and CodeProject mug to the first 10 people who complete Challenge 1 and either challenge 2 or 3.
For those of you who’ve already completed 2 challenges (we love your enthusiasm), you will be getting both! Have a great weekend everyone
"the debugger doesn't tell me anything because this code compiles just fine" - random QA comment
"Facebook is where you tell lies to your friends. Twitter is where you tell the truth to strangers." - chriselst
"I don't drink any more... then again, I don't drink any less." - Mike Mullikins uncle
Probably - but it wouldn't cast a shadow on the whole family now would it?
I'm pretty sure I would not like to live in a world in which I would never be offended.
I am absolutely certain I don't want to live in a world in which you would never be offended.
Freedom doesn't mean the absence of things you don't like.
We fall in love lust with the outer appearances of some newfangled technology.
We have a great time with all the new experiences and cool things we do together.
We sprint into a committed relationship.
Then we start to spend "resources" (time and money) on dependencies, tool upgrades, etc.
Any formal training is either non-existent or too expensive.
We start to formalize procedures and policies.
Then we get completely married to the technology even though we are starting to have doubts.
Child applications show up and the software gets more complicated and interdependent.
Soon after, we meet some new technology and have an affair.
Next, we're heading to divorce court.
