          You are very obviously either a novice programmer or not a programmer at all. There is nothing inherently impressive about writing a compiler or operating system. Braindead CS student write them (or at least used to) as part of their appropriately named classes. Most actual programmers don't bother because there's no point in wasting the time on it, but most are also perfectly capable of it if they wanted to. There was nothing technically interesting within the OS or compiler that Terry wrote. Being written by a schizophrenic character was the only interesting thing about them and the only reason why anyone knows about them. But still, nobody uses them for anything serious because they're technically worthless.

            You used to write very basic ones. Either a subset of c or lisp and a basic kernel that wouldn't even boot into a terminal. They don't even teach this anymore because it filters too many retards.
            Writing a usable compiler, libc, and operating system by yourself from scratch is a massive undertaking. Getting to CS undergrad level is just the beginning and can be completed by anyone with 100iq+ in a few weekends.
            Just because it's not practically useful doesn't mean it isn't impressive.

              The ones Terry wrote were very basic. He spent a lot more time on them than most people would bother spending on worthless projects, so there may have been a large amount of useless features, but they were all useless and unimpressive nonetheless.
              >Writing a usable compiler, libc, and operating system by yourself from scratch is a massive undertaking
              It's a massive amount of busywork. It's not particularly complex or novel or impressive. It's just a lot of shit to bash out that eats a lot of your time. Terry had the time to burn on it and was willing to burn it - that's the only difference between him and a typical mid-level programmer.
              >Just because it's not practically useful doesn't mean it isn't impressive
              True, but nothing he wrote was impressive. It wasn't unimpressive because it was useless, it just happens to be both useless and unimpressive.

I imagine the average programmer would imagine the process is roughly chars > tokens > assembly, but not have any idea about ASTs or how to write decent parsers and assemblers. The only way I can see you figuring these things out in a reasonable time frame is by googling, at which point reading a book is just better.

                You didn't learn though. Someone else did the learning for you and you just copied them. Of course it's perfectly valid to do this if you're just trying to get the job done, but if you're writing a compiler I assume you're doing it as a learning exercise to make yourself better, so figure it out yourself if you actually want to improve

                passing down knowledge by writing it down or mentoring is literally one of the core features of being a human, actual geniuses write books all the time, so why would they do it if they would reach the conclusion that people should just "figure it out" instead? to me it seems like you don't get the concept of passing down knowledge so this discussion is pointless anyways, just have your (you), the rest you can figure it out

                I have no dog in this fight, and as a current CS student I totally agree most people in my school write code/practice solving problems like 0% of their time outside of school work. However, Carmack notes in this interview multiple times reading magazines or books which helped him. Would you say that was a bad idea? Or was the usefulness that those old zines provided not the ideas themselves, but the excitement and inspiration to code?

                I do get the feeling you're underselling Terry Davis a bit to try to make your point, but I don't take Compilers until the fall, so I guess I'll see how cake it is my last semester.

                I think the best way for beginner programmers to learn is to literally slam their head into a brick wall trying to solve problems without anything telling them how to do it. This is a frustrating experience but it will make you good at programming. It's how I learned, it's how people like John Carmack learned, because back then we didn't have the internet and we had to figure things out on our own. When you actually know how to program and you're doing work trying to solve real problems, then of course you would read reference material. But that's the same thing as doing tutorials out of books. I also think John Carmack does way too much mental masturbation and navel-gazing these days

                Not reading all that. Is "he" Terry Davis? In which case, I refuse to believe you've ever worked in software at a company worth shitting at. Terry was a mentally ill homebody who hacked together a mediocre OS and a superset of C. If you're impressed by that, you've got no right being smug about anything. You look up to a mid dev whose only claim to fame is his fear of naggers.

                mmm, I get that I'm probably the biggest idiot here since I'm still at uni, but I think I get what the guy's saying. In some ways I don't think he's against books (or otherwise learning any way someone gathers knowledge). I get the feeling what he's saying is that most people's ability to solve problems has devolved due to having answers easily available to them. That seems like a net good until you get into fields/areas which do not have defined/explicit answers. I know before I switched from physics to cs this is talked about a lot more often, and physics youtubers even are more open about this, citing how much they think online resources are horrible for physics students.

                I think the guy sort of words things sub-optimally, but I sort of see where he's coming from. I do think the tech world has changed to some degree, and for many programmers, the idea of CS has sort of shifted from 'physics' to 'engineering', where if you just want to be a webdev, the important skill to have is to be able look up quickly how to spin some thing 'x' up as quickly as possible; compared to say trying to create the digital UI for a fighter jet written in Ada for the government in 1992, the most important skill may have been the ability to come up with novel solutions because if your solution is well known enough to be documented anywhere, you don't want to use it.

                I also may just be retarded.

                I get what you're trying to say, but the vast majority of people who become proficient in something have to study it with books or in a classroom setting. What's the use in rediscovering the wheel every time you hit a wall and need something basic like a compiler? There are already well-documented ways to design and implement compilers. Intuiting the process doesn't make you any better at compiling code, and you presumably spent longer on that than I did learning out of book.

                CS student from post above you. What's a street shitter. not trying to make a joke. sounds funny though. How was UT Austin, might try to get a masters there, as I graduate this upcoming May.

                I think the best way for beginner programmers to learn is to literally slam their head into a brick wall trying to solve problems without anything telling them how to do it. This is a frustrating experience but it will make you good at programming. It's how I learned, it's how people like John Carmack learned, because back then we didn't have the internet and we had to figure things out on our own. When you actually know how to program and you're doing work trying to solve real problems, then of course you would read reference material. But that's the same thing as doing tutorials out of books. I also think John Carmack does way too much mental masturbation and navel-gazing these days

                [...]
                If you've been working 11 years and your masters in CS is the only thing you have to brag about you're not a good programmer

                That... seems pretty reasonable to me. I had a physics prof tell us a similar thing for learning the basics you kind of need to get the reps in yourself. When I was a sophmore I had seniors saying they felt I could program better than them, and i think it's just because I actually find the process fun. And to be clear, I am still a shitter, just not as ass as some others who have somehow already graduated.

          Writing a usable compiler, libc, and operating system by yourself from scratch is a massive undertaking. Getting to CS undergrad level is just the beginning and can be completed by anyone with 100iq+ in a few weekends.

      terry was not a good programmer. have you ever even read anything he wrote? templeOS has absolutely horribly written code and terry got filtered by basic shit like implementing a USB driver (not that his OS has much in the way of a driver model to begin with). he had no life and was working on it for 12 years. it's not impressive at that point, it's just expected.

    Doom 1 and 2 weren't even fucking 3D
    I will never understand why people jerk this ugly homosexual off so much. People porting their games to shitty home consoles are legitimately more impressive than what they did

      also there were similar non-3d implementations on consoles way before doom
      my guess is, those edgy juvenile murdering games somehow clicked at a deep level with the american ethos

    unironically yes, not that proud of it, should have worked hard today but spent 7 hours of my day watching it (got bored a little bit, paused, got distracted, came right back in)
    lex is a midwit confirmed, incapable of having beautiful ideas a fucking parrot with a script in his hands

    i liked the part where he lowkey shit on webdevs. one of my professors is an insufferable fintech bro who can't shut up about how colleges should stop teaching C++ because "it's outdated" and unironically talks about watching Fridman and Rogan. i can't wait to see the look on his face.

    lex is a fucking braindead retard that asks the most babby philosophy questions and never goes beyond very surface level on anything.
    he has done podcasts with greatest living minds and somehow managed to make all of these podcasts not contain a single sentence of value

      Maybe because he's an autismo with difficulty in social situations. Seems like a pleasant fellow.

      a hard question on leetcode.com under the dynamic programming section. these are often given during FAGMAN onsite interviews, although the standards have been dropping.
