    @Lilyheart Hi! I'm hoping to get there this evening, but will definitely be late - waiting and waiting for a 7 GB download!

    @Lilyheart
    heh, roads are not bad but other drivers are. No worries.

    @Lilyheart
    oh and @dcpking it's not like there is a party at a new location like I thought. Still workin' on that.

    @dcpking you're alive!

    Hey guys, if any of you are looking to touch up on your algorithm skills (many languages supported), use the following link to sign up for codewars :D. Using the link to sign up will give me 'honor' (yup :D), but the site is actually pretty cool, and a good practice tool for anyone with at least basic programming skills.
    @dcpking you return! :D

    @SimplyPhy if you would have come to the meetup, you would have met xD j/knotj/k

    How did it go?
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    It went well, though I accidentally used slice in place of split in my code challenge, and wrote the algorithm mostly imperatively, whereas it would have been cleaner and more readable if I wrote it with declarative syntax. Once I got home I did a couple on Codewars and then were much better, especially with the use of chaining.
    But yeah all around I think it went quite well. I'll know more either today or first thing next week. Now I have another interview in 4.75 hours

    @Lilyheart
    I don't think I've posted this here. Good read imperative-vs-declarative-programming

    @SimplyPhy
    And then 1 or 2 tomorrow
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    crossing my fingers for you!
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    Thanks me too :). Basically just nonstop code challenges now to maximize my proficiency with niche algorithm problems
    Anybody going to barcamp this weekend? I'll be there
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I'm currently crashing the intro to web dev class on campus
    holy hell is that this weekend?
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    Yup, Saturday

    @Lilyheart
    I should... I shouldn't with school work. I'm already working on an extension for an assignment. But... /sigh

    Well, I made it (about an hour late, as predicted!! )

    @dcpking
    Anyhow, before starting, some catch-up for everyone curious:
    Yes, I do now work for Microsoft. I work as a Consultant for the Data Insights division, which means that I get shipped off to work for some needy company. ("needy"!! usually not "nerdy" - that's why they're needy :) )Data Insights are the people specialising in MS SQL Server and BI. Right now I get up at some unGodly hour on Mondays, drive to PHL (leave my car at PreFlight), fly to DTW, visit Avis, and go to the Ford ITek centre in Dearborn to work on a kinda neat system - it's a multi-processor, shared-nothing implementation of SQL Server called APS (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/sql-server/analytics-platform-system). Frida afternoons I come back, 40 billable hours under my belt.
    So that's why I've been noticeably absent - I'm very sorry!!
    OTOH, if anyone wants to learn anything about SQL, or about databases in general, I guess, then I should be working remotely the week of Thanksgiving, so could present a bit if anyone would like me to. We just need to decide wither on a venue or on a way of webexing things - maybe Skype would be better, although the compatible version is still in Beta for Linux and I haven't tried it out yet (volunteers anyone?)
    Yes, @SimplyPhy , @Lilyheart - I'll see you at the BarCamp - email me for my phone # (use my handle here at gmail)

    @davidjcastner
    Alright I've been slacking when it comes to personal project and I think I finally have some free time this weekend. Anyone have an idea for a completely useless app?
    the more useless the better
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    An app that interprets beep codes for computers ya know now that almost none of the manufacturers use them

    @dcpking just fyi this chatroom is in the public. If you are not okay if an employer sees your big message I can delete it. YouTube Live + this chat room chat.montcode.com is what MontCode uses for streaming stuff.
    re: Barcamp. I can be contacted through here in this chatroom or messages on here or through Facebook. I don't have a phone number to share.
    @lantech19446 that's fun Jon xD wheeeeee
    @davidjcastner I am idea'd out.

    @lantech19446
    @Lilyheart not so much fun trying to install on opensuse but flew right through it once i put Ubuntu back on my laptop, kinda pisses me off that developers of all people say Linux and only make it compatible with Ubuntu however
