I think I'm on my way out. That's only a small part of it, really.
The biggest issue is that we have a "platform" team that builds everything in-house, including our web framework, so everything I work on uses our custom stuff instead of off-the-shelf solutions like ASP.NET or Spring or whatever.
We have maybe 40 million lines of code in production spread across 3 generations of custom-built, in-house platforms and frameworks so your only source of help if something doesn't work is one of the 4 developers that built the damn thing.

So I just migrated to linux and deleted windows, is there a recommended way to "sandbox" GUI applications?
I'm looking to "sandbox" firefox and browsers without wanting the overhead from VM. There seems to be several recommendations so far:
> firefox in docker with GUI https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux_atomic_host/7/html/container_security_guide/locked_down_secure_firefox_in_a_container
> Firejail but apparently it's not secure as stated
> SELinux and use sandbox -X firefox (some other flags for networking), but I heard if you install. When I tried this I got "Install package 'policycoreutils-sandbox' to provide command 'sandbox'? [N/y] " Asking a friend he told me "not to do that"- why?
Any recommends? I'm sure I missed something that's really simple and just works

I just bought the LG nanocell 48" for $550. I use it as a monitor, not as a TV. I opened the back and disconnected the wifi card before powering it on. I spent about 30 minutes dialing in the colors, brightness, sharpness, etc. I'm extremely satisfied with it.

Lads, I'm looking at a 6-month long cybersecurity bootcamp that's partnered with a nearby university. It's run by Trilogy Education who's partnered with the uni, but not the uni itself. I already went through an interview over the phone and passed their assessment test(which was so easy a middle schooler could pass it) and I'm on the fence.

The bootcamp will give me the CompTIA+ and CEH certs, but will it actually help me land a job? Is it worth shelling out 11k for this? Should I self study and only shell out money to take the individual cert tests? Or is there another option to get me career ready for infosec?

It's one solution (of many) to the problem of dependency management.

Let's say you wrote a webapp in python and it depends on version 4 of some library. But your distro only packages version 3, and versions 3 and 4 are pretty incompatible. Well here's some options:

Make a package of version 4, install it, overwrite version 3, cross your fingers that some other package isn't relying on version 3.

Make a version that can be installed side-by-side with version 3.

Make a virtualenv or whatever and install it in that.

Install it to some non-standard directory and figure out the right environment variables to use that directory. (Basically what virtualenv does).

Write out a dockerfile where you can just do whatever you want because instead of making your app work in a particular system, you're building a particular system to work with your app.

Oh... wait, you actually thought that was a bad thing. How's that self-made compiler coming?

Since it's extremely difficult to buy an AMD 6000-series card or a NVidia 3000-series card, let's talk about whether or not the 5700xt is a good value and how much lifespan it has left.

I don't know, probably
$160 CPU
$100 MB
$100 RAM
$200 SSD
$200 GPU
$100 case and power supply...

would be probably much faster than the mac mini and is upgradable.

# What is this?

BPG is the Beginner Programmer's General, your one-stop shop for all things
pertaining to learning the ropes of the fascinating world of computer science.

This is a small experiment, with the idea of a "beginner's general" borrowed
from /ic/.

Something rather useful in /ic/'s /beg/ is a document with a collection of
resources and advice. I took the time to write such a document, linked below.

In broad terms, the beginner's document contains answers to common questions
such as "Which language should I start?", "How do I learn programming?", and
"What are tools I can use to program"?

Mobile lenses creating body dysmorphia for some, especially young girls. Some people will take pictures of themselves with a mobile and actually begin to think, they are actually ugly. Yet the mirror will say you look nice.

It's crazy to think of all the teenage girls out there heavily compensating for the mobile lens effect, being all unsure of themselves and being none the wiser to the effect of 25mm wide angle lens, commonly seen in most mobile phones.

If you are on dating websites, get yourself a proper camera with at least a 50mm lens, use a timer setting if you struggle for selfies with it. You will have pictures closer or the same to what a flat mirror will show.

It's amazing how mobile's world wide are making big portions of the population think they have odd faces or heads! It could explain in part for the nutty culture around selfies.

50mm is closer to what the human eye sees.

OGA is not great, I would get the clone version which has a better screen and controls.
