this is a different definition of "real" in this case. As in "toy" vs "tool". I do reach for Python for quite a few tasks, but not for any application that needs serious threading.
This makes me think of LabVIEW, which is the primary language at my workplace. People often look down on it and call it a "toy" language simply because coding involves drawing colourful diagrams, and because it has "lab" in its name. However, it trumps all other languages in its ease of creating multi-threaded code.
I know it's troll bait, but I do have to agree with the OP about licensing fees. Monthly use fees are criminal. Really, for as much as I hate windoze, the .net dev model is really the most fair one in the industry: buy once, and use that version forever without restrictions on redistributables.
+1. And Qt license used to work the same way in the past, too. Maybe it still does, I'm not sure.
@HaoTian Usually when you have to resort to that kind of workaround, there's something else to be fixed.
Running development tools and software as root/admin is usually a pretty bad idea. You can destroy your system pretty easily if you execute your application and it contains for example some innocent code that deletes folders and you start that at the root of your disk.
SOoo... Excellent stuff! Excellent presentations. Emmanuel taking his reputation in his hands with a live demo of PSD/Designer/Creator work flow. Auri(?) talking about Qt ultralite on MCUs and more AND a ton of cool and friendly people.
Brilliant day out. Yeah, cost me a day of contractor money (us contractors don't get paid for days out like this!) but we enjoyed it.
I am not spending some 120 EUR on AAA titles
(yes, I mean CD Projekt's Witcher 3) last year
Look: all I know is Steam says The Witcher® 3: Wild Hunt is currently £7.49 which is like €7.49 these days, so it can't have cost €120, or your €s are different from other peoples' €s! Unless you're not PC but game-station-thing, which I know nothing about...
Yes, I think it installed all configs, UWP, Android, mingw64, MSVC... I didn't really pay attention to the packages that it would install, and when it was too late I have let it do it's thing... I have 1TB to spare just for programming and compilation, I don't actually care :D
I'll search the forums for the answer to my previous question, thanks for help :)
