      If you want to have a Web Dev Career, you’ll have to work as a part of team, and traditional HTML/CSS won’t take you very far, app needs to be divided into modules, and state management becomes a necessity.

      For basic landing pages, it’s not required.

        Is bashing Google and selling itself in name of Privacy the only business model of DDG? they could just say it’s a good email service with many features that people actually care about.

        1. 1

          But it is not an email service. It is more of a filtering proxy.

          Why does every video platform want to be an Alternative to YouTube, they can be together, YouTube is doing great job with all the data and allows me to discover more videos.

            Everyone should build there own tools like this, Internet is mostly free, and you get complete customisation options, They charge you for nothing.

                  Isn’t storing mutual friendship seperately itself data duplication? It’s derivable from your friendship table, we would want it to he such that deleting a friendship would automatically delete the mutual friendship if any, that’s a good thing to put more thought on.

                  1. 2

                    We do not store both tables simultaneously. Friendship and mutual friendship are alternative designs that we discuss.

                    Compilers can do what even best programmers can’t when it comes to optimization, and in most cases, you have other priorities than wasting time on minute optimisations.

                          Worst part is feeling guilty for wasting time

                          1. 2

                            It always upsets me that 1 isn’t prime.

                            1. 7

                              It’s just a convention. It would make a bunch of theorems annoying to state if 1 were prime.

                              1. 3

                                “1 is a prime” can be the new “tau is superior to pi”.

                                On a more serious note, I read a bit about this and apparently for a long time 1 wasn’t even considered a number: https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/roots-of-unity/why-isnt-1-a-prime-number/

                                1. 2

                                  The current ad-hoc definition of a prime is of a natural number with exactly two distinct positive natural divisors. It appeared to be convenient so it was normalized this way about one century ago (but you can still find very old books citing 1 as the first prime number).

                                  1. 2

                                    2 being prime is pretty disappointing as well.

                                    1. 1

                                      1 is only divisible by 1 and itself, but then considering it as prime will destroy “sieve of eratosthenes”

                                      1 to 100 shouldn’t be hard, you could also make games like “Is this perfect square?”, “Is this perfect Cube?”

                                        Apart from being difficult to implement efficiently, most services don’t have that kind of data to make use of graph databases.

                                            PostgreSQL is best RDBMS out there

                                              This is the thing I am saying for years, DDG has no other plus point other can Bragging about privacy, A search engines job is to search, and DDG is nowhere close to Google in that respect.

                                                It took me 31 seconds, Am I worthy?

                                                    It took my colleague at work today ~9mins! Don’t worry I should have called it “Learn Go in ~10mins” sigh oh well 😄
