Overly optimized and generalized solutions
Øistein Søvik
June 30, 2016
Yeah, was thinking that.
I have much more fun squeezing out the optimizations than solving these tbh.
I can see that, reading your PE1 notes ATM
It is just a very rough sketch :p Many spelling mistakes and errors in the formulas. Just wanted to show off the layout. Happy that LaTex can automatically reffer to the PE site.
Looks quite nice indeed
I'm trying to wrap my mind around that Sigma symbol, I've seen it so much but never really bothered to try to understand what it means until now
12:12 AM
That was another convern a lot of these solutions will use quite a bit of heavy maths. I sometimes forget people are not used to the same notation as me
@Phrancis Sigma is the same as a for loop if that makes sense
count = 0
for i in range(333):
    count += 3*i
Except that it sums up every result
Equation (1) in the document is the same as the for loop above. Sigma starts with an S for sum.
\$\sum_{i=0}^5 ^n\$
is the same as int n = 0; for(int i = 0; i < 5; i++) { n += i; }
@Phrancis Less than or equal
Ah ok
12:21 AM
\$\sum_{i=0}^5 = 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5\$
I guess that MathJax plugin for chat can't render that formula
0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5
5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1+ 0
6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 +6
Or maybe it can... how did you do it?
Oh I just read the source code, not bothered installing the plugin.
12:23 AM
I speak better LaTex than I do German and French. LOL
Oh I forgot the counter
\sum_{i=0}^5 i = 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5
Now that one is not rendering :(
What did you do differently?
No same
\$\sum_{i=0}^5 i = 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5\$
There we go
\$\sum_{i=0}^5 i = 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5\$
Looks like the chat plugin doesn't allow "big formula" syntax, only inline formula
If we add
0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5
to itself backwards we get
6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6
So 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 is the same as half of 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6
So it basically reads, in plain English, from "i" starting at zero up to five, do "thing"
12:28 AM
In chat thingy

\sum_i^5 i = 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = \frac{6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6}{2} = \frac{5 \cdot 6}{2} = \frac{5\cdot(5+1)}{2}
As wanted
@Phrancis Yes
@N3buchadnezzar Make sure you wrap them with \$ on each end instead of just $ (CR-specific syntax)
Like that?
It's purdy isn't it
No :p
BTW thanks for explaining this summation notation to me, makes a whole lot more sense now
12:31 AM
We also have the same for products
I didn't know formal math used loop structures like code does, very good to know
\$\prod_{i=1}^n i = 1 \cdot 2 \cdot \cdots \cdot (n - 1) \cdot n = n!\$
Maths is just language for lazy people. "How can we say this complicated thing as short as possible?" Well we can define it as X. Where X means a Y of Z and Y and Z are again defined by A, B and C, D which really are quite easy structures to explain.
@Phrancis Formal maths actually uses very little symbols. It can look a bit like this en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compact_space.
Funny that people think maths is all about long complicated formulas.
So this product symbol is, for all intents and purposes, identical to the sum symbol other than the thing it does with \$i\$
12:39 AM
Yeah. It is just like the summation only now we multiply the numbers instead of adding them.
@N3buchadnezzar is this intentional or error?
@Phrancis Yeah. There are loads of them :p
The formula is correct though. I just switched the counting index (which you should know from programing is just arbitary).
Hey, I'll be happy to proof-read what I can, if you let me know when you update the document
Will probably be a few days =) I need to move tommorow. Then I will spend a week with a friend teaching kids how to program
\$i=1\$ would be just as correct as \$i=0\$ in your use case right?
12:47 AM
@Phrancis Yeah!
Since 0 has no multiples or factors or anything like that, could be skipped entirely
As a programmer I tend to start things at zero :p
Q: Bootstrapped tabbed table view

MonsterMMORPGThis produces tabbed tables. Here's how it looks: Each table displays comments of E-commerce products. The variable dtProductComments is DataTable. The other variables are self explaining. <%if (dtProductComments.Rows.Count > 0) { %> <div class="margin-top-20"> <ul class="nav nav-tabs">...

As a popquiz what is \$\prod_{i=0}^{5}i\$ ?
12:49 AM
You win!
Anything times zero is always going to be zero
Is there an equivalent operator for subtraction and division? I realize subtraction could just be from 0 to -5 or whatever
@Phrancis I am thinking of adding this picture i.stack.imgur.com/zeeyN.png to explain the adding and subtracting.
(or maybe not)
Subcration is as you say done with minus, nothing as far as division goes.
What is that upside-down U symbol?
12:51 AM
@Phrancis It means everything in both
It is like the set operation
So the set where \$A=B\$ ?
[1, 2] U [3, 4] = [1, 2, 3, 4]
[1, 2, 3] U [1, 2] = [1, 2, 3]
Okay that makes sense
What's the LaTeX symbol/command for it?
12:53 AM
Q: TikZ labelling venn diagram

yoloI have a 3-circle venn diagram \def\firstcircle{(0,0) circle (2cm)} \def\secondcircle{(55:2.67cm) circle (2cm)} \def\thirdcircle{(0:3cm) circle (2cm)} % Now we can draw the sets: \begin{tikzpicture} \draw \firstcircle node[below] {$A$}; \draw \secondcircle node [above] {$B$}; \draw ...

Dang, LaTeX looks powerful
\$A \cap B\$
the idea would be that each circle would represent all the numbers divisible by that number
Eg red circle would be 3, blue circle 5 and green 7
We are trying to find the union (the total) of these three sets of numbers.
So just combining the sets and then adding whatever numbers are in there would give the solution to PE1
But you see there is a lot of overlap between the circles right?
Ohhh I know union, used it in SQL plenty of times :D
12:57 AM
We have to subtract the overlap
Wouldn't union eliminate the overlap?
e.g., \$[3,6,9,12,15] \cap [5,10,15] = [3,5,6,9,12,15]\$
@Phrancis not quite
\$\cap\$ means in both, \$\cup\$ means in either.
\$[3,6,9,12,15] \cap [5,10,15] = [15]\$
1:02 AM
Usually this is what is taught at the introductory courses in mathematics. Just drilling the students in new and "confusing" notation :p
But nighty night all =)
@N3buchadnezzar Good night, thanks again :D

2:11 AM
Pretty darn late, but IEnumerables just seem like stacks of promise callbacks
you apply a whole bunch of expressions to the result of a core async action
JavaScript's promises are similar in that they don't stack, they're just callbacks, theoretically, you could make a jenga tower out of callbacks and have a similar thing to stacking enumerable expressions, but the language syntax isn't build for that
the C# compiler or whatever optimises their expressions into a much more performant usage, but nonetheless

@Matthias I can't be bothered to decode this, but there is zero relation between the number of lines of source code and memory used. There is no performance what-so-ever gained from squeezing in all these operations on a single line of code.

@Quill @Mat'sMug @Phrancis @JeroenVannevel Here's an example of LINQ-y.. things in JS

  for(let i = min; i <= max; i++) {
    yield i

function* map (iter, functor) {
  for(let el of iter) {
    yield functor(el)

const generator = map(range(1, 5), i => i * 2)

for(let element of generator) {
generator would be your IEnumerable<T>.
Nothing is evaluated until generator is iterated, so you could essentially pass an infinite generator to map if you wanted and nothing would happen until you iterate over it

@Zak It's definitely worth it if your business pays for it.
The SQL Source control is all I use and it is so incredibly good.
@DanPantry I expect I'll have to build the thing first. Once it's there and making a noticeable improvement to our operations, I can probably make a convincing case for investing in improving it.

definitely keep your eye on it though, the amount of stuff it adds that isn't in the default set is mindblowing

@ZAK Application.EnableEvents = false... is this really a good idea?
I guess for most simple apps it doesn't matter.
@Gareth It depends, does your macro rely on worksheet (or other) events firing?
If not, it's a great idea.
Ditto for functions re-calculating and Application.Calculation
It's a discussion. I'm convinced it's not a good idea in the general, but you often put it into your code reviews.

@DanPantry Never heard that song...
Just thought I'd throw it out there.
@DanPantry @Zak Yeah, I'd like a more informative description about what CR.SE actually is.
9:12 AM
@Gareth A lot of (well-written) Macros shouldn't require workbook events at all. Especially at the simpler data manipulation/calculation end. IMO, in practice, most code works perfectly fine without it, and it can make a big performance difference, so I like to improve it. If OPs find it causes problems, they'll figure it out soon enough.
@SimonForsberg The two line line description makes it rather difficult, though I suppose that's why you're asking here... what kind of image are you trying to paint to the audience?
Step 1: Post working code to CR
Step 2: Receive peer-reviewed feedback and suggestions
Step 3: A more informed, better programmer with better Code.
On the other hand if there are no events being caught then you aren't saving any time. But if there are events being caught you are by passing someones code
@MaximilianAst I did consider code review site and you are probably correct it would be more suited for it but it doesn't really seem to get as much traffic — Ctrl_Alt_Defeat 28 secs ago
@Zak, My discussion is on the use of/or not, and not on the review process.
9:14 AM
@Gareth Depends. Do you have any idea how many workbook events trigger when you do anything to/with a worksheet?
none if you don't hook into them
yes there's a ton of hooks
Code that doesn't interact at all with any workbook (or other MS application) has no business being written in VBA.
? Not sure what you mean
@Gareth If your code never does anything that would trigger a workbook event, then what on earth is it doing?
@Zak I might have an add-in that changes my hot keys depending on the active workbook, or active cell range.
9:17 AM
@Gareth Sure, but why would this matter *while* the code is executing
@Zak I might turn that around on you and say, how would you know it doesn't. Very specifically you are suggesting disabling events on a workbook open event. Application.EnableEvents has global impact, not local to macro.
@DanPantry @Zak So far my best attempt is something like "Code Review Stack Exchange, a sister site to Stack Overflow, for programmers that have working code that they want to improve any aspects of"
@Gareth This is generally why I remind people that it's important to scope Application changes and always reset them when you're done with them.
In any case, just a discussion point on your template answer. I don't think EnableEvents = false belongs there, or if you do add it you should caveat what it does.
@Gareth That's a fair point.
9:21 AM
That's another thing. Resetting is counter intuitive. Rather wrap in a class, and reset by way of the class going out of scope. But that's way too complicated for the standard user.
@Gareth Yeah. One step at a time. I still remember (I think) what it was like when I was learning. So I try not to leap over intermediate steps and concepts from where the OP currently is.
And often, that's only a couple of steps above the Macro Recorder.
@Gareth I think you've got a good point though. I should explain a bit more about what effects Application.[Settings] have in my reviews.

if you're in TextBox.Style then you don't need a target type
Except if you're using BasedOn
what's the other style doing anyway?
Adding a margin to all TextBoxes
hmm imo that's where style abuse is happening
you could control layout from the parent's Padding instead
@Mat'sMug pastebin.com/XxqDTxXC Yes this might be abuse
@Mat'sMug Unless the parent happens to be a Grid that doesn't have a Padding property :D
1:31 PM
yup, looks like it :)
I'm trying to style that fuel cost related text box properly >.> That's all I want :P
All I want is for my code to work!
@skiwi perhaps a Grid isn't the best layout option then?
I rarely use a grid
you want:
What should I use then if I want my data to be layed out in a grid?
label textbox
label textbox
you could have a vertically-stacked StackPanel, where each "row" consists of a horizontally-stacked StackPanel, if they don't need to line up - or, a 2-column Grid if they do
I do want them to line up so I thought a stack panel wouldn't be the greatest
Looks like the bigger problem is with conditional elements though, if that part could be solved I'm also out of this mess for now
That looks pretty damn nat
pretty much all @Hosch250's work
someone made a cool git commit tree graph visualiser program called Gource, it's pretty good to visually watch the history of the repo
@Quill That's an awesome program yep :)
I ran it over a few high profile SE projects and watching the history was pretty interesting

@Mat'sMug Do you think that setting element visibility should be done in C# back code instead of XAML if it ends up cluttering XAML this much?
I just moved out
I tend to avoid plain C# if it can be done with XAML. Sometimes I'll just write it in C# anyway, move on to something else, and then eventually figure out the markup and remove the C# code-behind
@N3buchadnezzar monking!
Hmm okay
Interestingly the text boxes are still messed up now I removed the styles to conditionally show then, so perhaps something else is up
my PC has suddenly become unbearably slow this week. It just took it an entire minute to open chrome.
...really, by adding x:Key="TextBoxMarginStyle" (simply naming the style) to my Style it stopped working
@Zak That doesn't sound too good :/

hi @enderland!
hey @enderland
hello enderland
seeing @enderland's avatar always makes me feel happy. don't know why.
@Mat'sMug Maybe because it is a smiley? It is a human reacton to be happy when others are happy.
1:50 PM
@N3buchadnezzar but... I'm a mug!
@Mat'sMug The issue was that the style defined in Grid.Resources wasn't working at all
Q: Making a object move when pressing a key. Python Tkinter: PONG game

kaspersinoSo I'm trying to do a Pong game but I'm stuck with the "moving of paddle" thing. I've managed to do so that the method "moving" recognizes with i've pressed w or s for up or down commands. But I can't seem to get the paddle to move with the .move command and I can't find what's wrong. Thanks for ...
