Q: Code to find entry in hash depending on hash's data

MercI wrote this code and I just can't stomach it. The idea is that there is a schema, and the goal is to find the entry with autoIncrement set to true. If it's not found, the result should be idProperty. Here you go: const idProperty = 'id' const schema = { id: { type: 'number' }, code: { type: ...

As many offices go fully remote, learning how to approach key meetings with your manager can pay big dividends.
@pacmaninbw I'm not sure if that is the most precise terminology, but I see it when I'm on my profile > Activity - in the top right corner when tracking the next tag badge it shows progress: score (total) and (number of) answers
the number of answers for gold badge is x / 200 answers
I guess because 200 is the minimum # of answers before a gold badge can be awarded
> You must have a total score of 1000 in at least 200 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.
We resolved this by simply defining a process that upon every merge from branch A to branch B with conflicts, the merge shall be done from B to A first while pushing the conflicts as-is (yes, in that commit the code will not compile). Then make another commit on branch A after resolving the conflicts. Then merge that into branch b with a pull request. This way, when a code review is done on the pull request, the reviewer can see the conflicts and how they were resolved before approving the merge. — Lucent567 56 secs ago

Your high score in JavaScript is a lot higher than my highest high score.

My girlfriend and I keep having the "kids" discussion and this is a struggle y'all
3:52 PM
@pacmaninbw there are already 45 users with that username on CR
Their are worse discussions to have.
Man I don't want kids
John Doe?
@DerKommissar I figured that was why it was a struggle.
I might have to "compromise" and accept that she wants a kid or two, but fortunately we have 4-5 years to figure it out yet.
(Neither of us want kids in our 20's thank goodness)
@DerKommissar I think that is a good thing, but I'm not sure. People change over time also.
3:56 PM
That's kinda what I said, I mentioned that we should "revisit" the discussion in a year
My girlfriend in college didn't want kids, now she has 3.
I'm pretty adamant I don't want kids, like I've thought about it A LOT.

She also fits #2 sometimes....
4:10 PM
at least the Eco light 🌿 is on :)
Oh yeah she'll be very efficient when she tells me about all her problems.
Possible way out of it when you're ready, "I'm just not into commitment".
Gonna take more than that, last time I tried to break up with her she said "we're not arguing about this today" and we're still together
(I kid I kid, I read that somewhere and thought it was hilarious.)
I have 2 friends that are married to each other for 30 years, they got separated 3 years ago and are in counseling. He finally admitted he had a problem with commitment about 3 weeks ago.
4:21 PM
That's one way of putting it.
We met in January and were texting until May or so, when she had a small breakdown and decided to move from OH to FL with her aunt, then she came back in September. It's been an interesting ride.

10:20 PM
> The code works and performs what it's supposed to, however I haven't yet come up with a better way of reading the [row] parameter from the argument vector. How can I read not only the first digit but the whole integer inside the string of that argument?
Not working, also this is a single function that doesn't begin to cover the whole program.
As well as code not working, it is out of context.
I figured the latter
There are a few ways to turn a string into an integer value one of them is the atoi() library function.
This question is better suited for CodeReview — Steve 18 secs ago
10:38 PM
@Barrosy That is a big question with many answers because reviews can serve many purposes. I can say that having anyone looking over your code helps. Even the most junior who is asking questions about the why and what will make you think twice about your code. Even reviewing it yourself ensures you've read over your complete change and thought about it. There is also automated code review, like Code Climate, to keep you honest on the basic stuff. — Schwern 24 secs ago
@SᴀᴍOnᴇᴌᴀ Everytime I look at that question, it looks worse they shouldn't use argv there because the input should be coming from stdin (standard in) based on the calling sequence at the top.
