    I think I’d like to give slack a shot, and i want to try paired programming
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    By what do you mean slack? It's a chat app like gitter.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    yeah just watched the intro video, i thought it was more, though still looks good :D
    gitter and groupme are what i’m active with currently

    Not just anyone can join a slack channel and immediate start chatting without some admin finagling. When choosing a place to put MontCode, I looked at slack, but it is not straightforward for new people to sign up. So annoying. There is a philly dev chat room on slack somewhere, I can find the link at some point later. A lot of things can be programmed to integrate with slack, but so can gitter. Gitter is just newer so doesn't have as much integration already created. I chose gitter because it's closely tied with GitHub. Anyone wanting to join MontCode should have a GitHub account so don't need some extra log in. Also, it's the place FreeCodeCamp has decided is the chat hom and FCC is the core of MontCode.

    yup, i wasn’t at all saying i thought something was wrong with gitter, nor that montcodes place on gitter is less than ideal; i only brought up an interest in slack because a: i see it references in employers “good to haves” sometimes, and b: i thought it had paired-programming in mind
    now i see it’s just another chat utility with some company-minded features and assortment of app integrations
    still cool, but completely disconnected (for me) from any discussion pertaining to anything related to montcode

    @Lilyheart
    xD I was just sharing my experience with slack :p as you said you were interested.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    cool, yeah i really want to try paired programming though
    it’s another thing that employers seem to want, and i think i have a huge learning potential from it
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Remote paired programming is a very different animal from in person paired programming. Just fyi.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    yeah, i read about it a bit, but nonetheless
    i might even just find some youtube videos of experienced programmers going at it in javascript, just to see what i learn from it
    though ill have to find time for that, where my attention can be devoted to a video…maybe while eating
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Ha. Yeah. I always have to speed up videos xD

    @SimplyPhy
    I’m reading this article right now and i’m a little disconcerted by my lack of knowledge related to the terms used. I imagine that lack of knowledge is obviously directly related to my inexperience, but alas largely due to me never being around other programmers. :goat:

    HAL9000 was reset to the last backup I took in May (Doesn't get changed often so I don't back much xD). Seems to be behaving much better now so I don't think it was the SD card. ( @dcpking ).
    JavaScript is sooooooo huge.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    yeah, i’m getting much better with my knowledge of the language, but the terminology used between developers is still largely foreign to me
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Tho that is an Eric Elliot post, and I would trust anything JS written by him.
    Follow him on twitter. You'll get knowledge... fast....
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    jargon
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Even if you don't use twitter... make an account, follow a few big names just for the exposure to terms.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    yeah, i suppose i should begin integrating twitter into my social hub
    actually, i should integrate into a social hub in the first place xD
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I stick interesting articles that get posted on twitter into instapaper when I can't read them right away. Then on the "day off" usually Saturday, I go through instapaper.
    You can usually tell when as I link dump on here and Facebook :p
    Gonna update HAL9000 to the newest released version of OpenHAB etc... wish me luck. He lives up to his namesake xD
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    good luck :D
    have any of you used hoodie?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    i haven't
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    to update node.js (npm), can i just download the installer for the newest version and let it do its thing?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    OS?
    for OSX (*nix, etc = e.g. Not Windows), I would recommend looking into NVM
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    yeah i looked at it
    tried to install it but as usual i suck at git
    i don’t know where to install it for example
    forewarning: any effort to assist me at the moment would likely be vain, as I’m about to have to get offline
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    heh

    @SimplyPhy
    actually, if you know really quickly:

    @Lilyheart
    installing over should work most of the time as far as I know. That is the standard way of updating on windows. Sometimes you do need to uninstall first.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    i deleted npm-debug.log like an idiot (via rm git function)
    and it looks like i shouldn’t have xD
    any idea how to quickly undo such a thing
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    If it wasn't commited somewhere, then no. Although @davidjcastner might. My node knowledge is very light.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    yeah i thought it was the result of an incomplete download that i had it, but i’m thinking i was wrong xD
    especially since when i went to install nvm it told me something along the lines oh “yo dude, where’s the npm-debug.log"
    and i said “ ugh, …"
    that’s why i hate terminal
