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.
When trying to summon demons using C++ be careful that you can actually control the demon.
I once tried it an promptly summoned Abaddon, his name meaning Doom, the Angel of Death, also known as Apollyon, the Destroyer, King of the Bottomless Pit, the Antichrist, by some believed to be the Devil himself.
To make a long story short, I tried the same using C# and summoned a locust.
I just wanted to give him the long and ominous introduction he deserves
No doubt you two often meet to scheme great evil, befitting for a witch and a King among Demons, like not using brackets around single-line if-statements
I should start by saying I am not a coder and know nothing about it. I currently work construction. I like my job, and I make a decent living, but construction can be "feast or famine," and layoffs are not uncommon.
Gig work would be an ideal way for me to supplement or replace my income during the slow times. A career in computer science could also be a good transition for me when my body will no longer tolerate the rigors of construction work.
For now though, as I stated above, I am mainly interested in setting myself up to be able to do gig work. Has anyone on here done any gig work? If so, I would love to hear your opinion on it.
I am considering going to school online to earn a degree in some type of computer science. Any opinions about which disciplines are best for the type of work I'm looking to do? Any recommendations for schools? Any I should stay away from? I was searching online, and am thinking [DELETED] may be a good option. Any opinions on that?
Thank you for reading this. I know I have a lot of questions, and I hope I posted this in the appropriate place. Any advice or opinions would be much appreciated!
I am not sure what "gig work" means, "contracting" maybe. However if you want to know what to learn then the best starting point is to look at what jobs are being advertised in your area. For web development C#, ASP.NET, SQL are probably most common. For mobiles Java and Android, or Swift and iOS. For desktop computing maybe C++ and Windows.
