But anons how else can I pretend to be smart whilst working flipping burgers, when I post online to the few other people I'll never meet? They know I like this gay anime so when I photoshop an anime girl from that anime, it's like -me- who is holding it, that makes me all smart, despite neither of us (myself or the anime girl) ever having read it.

...Woah, I am really, really smart.

I am smart, look how smart I am, I put a duck on my laptop, I am very very smart. I'm all, a real programmer or something dude holy fuck you have no idea how smart I am

...Can someone photoshop an anime girl pretending to talk to a duck at a laptop that is also photoshopped in? Again I am an NPC, I have to project my smarmy cunt online persona via anime girls, that makes me way more smart.

We can ban welfare-existing too. Imagine spending 40 years pretending to read a book on welfare to pretend to be smarter than the other losers on welfare.

>Today, this is no longer the case. Sussman pointed out that engineers now routinely write code for complicated hardware that they don’t fully understand (and often can’t understand because of trade secrecy.) The same is true at the software level, since programming environments consist of gigantic libraries with enormous functionality. According to Sussman, his students spend most of their time reading manuals for these libraries to figure out how to stitch them together to get a job done. He said that programming today is “More like science. You grab this piece of library and you poke at it. You write programs that poke it and see what it does. And you say, ‘Can I tweak it to do the thing I want?'”. The “analysis-by-synthesis” view of SICP — where you build a larger system out of smaller, simple parts — became irrelevant. Nowadays, we do programming by poking.

Shouldn't you be reading Guttag's book or Htdp in 2020?

That’s how I feel about programming books in general. I’ve read like 4 software related books during college though.

I’ve not even read the SICP you schizo poojet. Did you failed your classes at ITT or why are you so salty about the book?

You will end up a literal brown shit stain on the floor of the morgue when they burn your worthless corpse cause you didn't even make enough in your worthless life for a proper burial, you will not even get an epitaph, you never had a voice and will be silenced for eternity, you are an excess male, a societal mistake, you have jacked off into your religion book too many times and stuck the pages and can no longer open it, so you forgot what was inside and made it up, telling yourself this story you need to pretend to be a smarmy cunt for 40 years then silently die, you are an NPC

wow who would have thought nerds also watch anime. fuck off with your ironic bullshit, i hate anime but if you cant figure out why anime and tech is related on online forums and boards, you clearly dont belong here. next you will ask me how i know you use reddit.

The private sector pays for your welfare, we are in the golden era of nobody wanting to challenge this yet and also all sorts of communication methods, this little mix makes NPCs want to jump online and show off their excess male welfare burger spice, on this board this takes the form of pretending to read a 60 year old hipster book that the original authors have also forsaken. You have 10 years of this tops before companies get tired of paying welfare because it's so obvious you are not trying to get yourself out of the hole (which is what welfare was designed to do), in 40 years SICP will have a pride of place center piece display in NPC museums explaining the history and behavior of being on welfare and what it was like to be an excess male

>> No.77823153

I've never met anyone in the private sector that watches anime despite them supposedly being the perfect fat mouthbreathing IT sperg copy. What you are doing is misconstruing actual tech (having a job) versus fake tech (sicp) and actual existence (success) versus fake existence (failure and watching anime for cope). The concept that you must totally be into anime cause you are also into fake tech, only exists because psuedo intellectuals think they are clever for abstracting their lives by watching anime, use the same technique of abstracting their failure tech lives by pretending to read SICP. Hence, there's tons and tons of anime girl photoshops holding up SICP, and this doesn't really happen for any other book. What I'm trying to say is: Your entire fucking life is a meme

>HURRR i have no interest to learn about a obscure language and topic so its shit right?
no one said sicp will get you six figure job or anything, its a iconic book among many others, how dose it feel to know that you have not even touched the book and yet screeching on the internet?

Anything that isn't in the religious text, which is C or Scheme, doesn't exist as far as nigger sicp NPCs are concerned, not even C++ or asm, again not in the book doesn't exist. Christfags do this too, any science that isn't mentioned in their book called the bible, doesn't exist

I read about ~100 pages or so before dropping it. SICP isn't necesseraily that hard, it's just time consuming and dry and I think the only reason /g/ recommends it is to scare away newcomers from programming.

SICP is mediocre book for learn programming, for programming language theory, for learn LISP family, for compilers/interpreters.
