The Art of Code - Dylan Beattie

NDC Conferences

Year ago

Software and technology has changed every aspect of the world we live in. At one extreme are the ‘mission critical’ applications - the code that runs our banks, our hospitals, our airports and phone networks. Then there’s the code we all use every day to browse the web, watch movies, create spreadsheets… not quite so critical, but still code that solves problems and delivers services.
But what about the code that only exists because somebody wanted to write it? Code created just to make people smile, laugh, maybe even dance? Maybe even code that does nothing at all, created just to see if it was possible?
Join Dylan Beattie - programmer, musician, and creator of the Rockstar programming language - for an entertaining look at the art of code. We’ll look at the origins of programming as an art form, from Conway's Game of Life to the 1970s demoscene and the earliest Obfuscated C competitions. We’ll talk about esoteric languages and quines - how DO you create a program that prints its own source code? We’ll look at quine relays, code golf and generative art, and we’ll explore the phenomenon of live coding as performance - from the pioneers of electronic music to modern algoraves and live coding platforms like Sonic Pi.

Nice update buddy. stats show that since the inauguration of BTT in 2019, it has never been more popular than how it currently is, this year it climbed by nearly 3x increase within days, having a slight experience in the crypto market i wouldn’t really advise one get a share of this asset with the intention of hodling only, can be very dangerous, majorly owing to the poor global acceptance of the asset, though i’d admit that on a short term basis the asset has proven to be very effective in trading especially when working with the right strategy. I have been employing day trades for some time now using signals from Logan Buckley, a licensed professional trader, Logan employs high frequency trading along side expert guide for newbies and veterans. using his signals i’ve made 750,000 usd worth crypto assets within months of trading, with greater earning per share ratio. Logan may be reached on Tele- gram @LoganBuckley for his assistance on strictly crypto related concern.

I love all of this except one thing: complex numbers aren't made up, they are necessary for mathematics to make sense. Without them, you could compute 2^Pi but not (-2)^Pi. They are just as "real" as negative numbers are. It makes no sense to have "-2" pencils, but "-2" needs to exist, otherwise you could compute 5-3 but not 3-5. The universe has no preference, it is not logical that one operation works but the other doesn't.

From the look of things and according to experts in the crypto space. This period the perfect time to buy the dip and accumulate irrespective of the bulls being under pressure. Bitcoin moving up is inevitable and would see the price of bitcoin surpass it's all-time highs. The reversal was imminent because obviously, the bitcoin market needed a correction to gather the right momentum to give the bulls more steam and this just makes it the perfect time to invest and accumulate as much as possible. However i see every market as an advantage to make more profits as this is a very good buy zone and also to trade with a working strategy / daily signals, this i have been doing with daily signals which has been so accurate and well profitable, Last month i was able to grow and accumulate a total of 6.8btc with my initial 1. 2btc which you would agree is a very good profits. I see no reason to panic when you can build your portfolio with (@pashmancryto ) on telegram

Rather than writing a program that turns code into music, write a compiler that turns music into code. Maybe all flow control would be done through the drums, while other instruments would control other aspects. For example, the base line might signal various logic and mathematical functions and notes on a piano or guitar might encode data. Use fast arpeggios where 1 note in each loop represents a single character in a string.

I just wanted to say here that Jesus loves you very much and died a horrible and painful death on the cross that you might be saved. You can accept Jesus as your savior anytime you want. If you want to know more about receiving Jesus you might want to go to the website real Bible Christians and watch the tape by Dr Kim I believe it's titled are you 100% sure your shame. It will tell you how to be reborn or how to be saved by Jesus. Remember Jesus is out so Emmanuel our God with us, Yahweh and the flash. God bless you very much
