“You’re using the default hashing algorithm in mysql instead of bcrypt? You should probably give up and see if they’re hiring down at the local concrete crushing factory because you, sir, have absolutely no business whatsoever touching, much less programming, a computer.”
“God I hate the arduino. It’s not real hacking. Using the arduino is no different than going down to target and just buying whatever it is that you’re trying to build. Arduino is for idiots that can’t actually program because they’re too stupid to figure out how to hook a parallel cable into a bread board. God, kids these days are fcking IDIOTS.”
These are all embellished caricatures of comments I’ve actually seen.
What the hell, guys? Why is this attitude so common? And it extends beyond just criticizing other designers/hackers/makers. Why does every single nerd I meet just hate “hipsters”? Or “bros”?
Are we all back in high school again?
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
