lots of nice counter-points here - looks like the best way to fight a battle, is in the CR arena (i.e. not on meta!)

A: FileWriter supporting writing to multiple files

ckuhn203I'll start by saying that I like this. I like it a lot and I'll be doing this from now on. 'expose raised errors to clients: Public Enum FileWriterError InvalidFileName = vbObjectError + 42 End Enum But, if you plan on raising more than one error, you should use a constant to give your cla...

@ckuhn203 you got my instant upvote!
 
Thank you!, yeah. I know meta wasn't the best place, but I'm still not convinced it was off topic. Thank you for giving me a good opportunity to put that out there for the community. @Mat'sMug
 
One thing I don't like about your answer though, is that it introduces some UI concerns - showing a MsgBox with an error description isn't handling an error IMO; I have some updated code, you're right about the Err.Clear, it's essentially swallowing all errors, the current version simply rethrows (RaiseError Err.Number, Err.Description, ...), but I should wrap known errors into a FileWriterError enum value. What do you think?
I might post the updated code later on, I think you might have convinced me with using a ExitFunction: label and Resume ExitFunction in the error-handling subroutine...

@rolfl I'm not bending on the Hungarian Notation in / though.
1
A: Generating a collection of controls

ckuhn203I know we're supposed to use Hungarian notation in VBA, but it's useless with the modern IDE. Get rid of it unless you're working in VBScript. The only reason I say to bother with Hungarian notation in VBScript is because everything is a variant in that flavor of the language.

(i.e. I don't care if I'm supposed to use it, I'm not writing that!)
 
Thanks @rolfl for running this in Access.
 
Well, it doesn't work (and that's the first time I have run an access query this century.

Morning everyone
 
Good answer, Simon (must have had your ..)
 
11:52 AM
lol, yes. I did have my breakfast.
 
Your answerr already has my +1 .... mstly for all the good info on the style side of things ifyouknowwhatImean
Let me check the altrernative some more.
 
Ihaveanideaaboutwhatyoumeanyes
 
You are right, it's the better algorithm....
The only problem with it is that what if all the numbers are negative.
You can't skip them all.
 
That's true
So you'd always have to keep the least negative number in memory.
 
I considered that iussue as well, but was too lazy to code up the answer.

I'll see if I can write up some code for this

now at home cause there I had more no acces to mine remote pc then I did have acces
 
@SimonAndréForsberg - in the past i have found really cool ways to solve problems using fancy memoization algorithms. Thinsg that should have cut out lots of processing.
 
rolfl, voted your answer now ;)
 
then discovered that the memoization overhead exceeded the time of the eliminated logic.
 
@Morwenn: Thats what you get when only skimming around the sites, I should have noticed the different layout ^^
 
I would bet that, for all practical solutions, the additional computation and logic required to implement a smarter algorithm that does 'less work', will, in this case, do more work.
 
11:59 AM
@rolfl damn didn't think about that
 
@Nobody Actually, Mathoverflow may even be older. But it was independant at first (and use the SE 1.0 engine). It got rattached to the SE network when they updated their engine to use SE 2.0.
 
@chillworld You have a minor indentation incident in your answer
@rolfl Hmm, you may be right there. I'll see about this.
 
@SimonAndréForsberg tell me :)
 
@chillworld There's a } on the wrong indentation
 
@SimonAndréForsberg where exactly?
 
12:05 PM
@chillworld getMaxSumArray method
After throw new AssertionError("Precondition failed, null object or zero size array.");
.... Would have been quicker to just fix it myself :)
 
you are prob right, you know you may also do that
but fixed it
after reading your answers, mine solution seems bad :)
its really bad :s
didn't think of the -1 in the subarray is possible
damn, gonna edit mine question to remove mine solution
nah done
as I can see his logic isn't that great, I see by myself that mine logic wasn't that great either :s
 
@chillworld I haven't checked much of the algorithm in your code actually, but if there's one thing I've learned from @rolfl it's that using Lists and other object-oriented approaches tends to reduce the effectiveness of a 'primitive' algorithm.
@rolfl and @chillworld is an empty array a sub-array? Because if it is, 0 would be an acceptable answer. Or perhaps a sub-array needs to contain at least one element.
 
in mine code an empty array (or null object) throws a AssertionError
and lenght 1 returns directly the array back
 
But I mean if all the array contents are negative, would then the highest sub-array sum be 0 ?
i.e. is {} a sub-array of { -4, -2, -5 } ?
 
i.e. is {} a sub-array of { -4, -2, -5 } ?
no
 
12:19 PM
OK :)
 
P.s.: hi all :)
 
@SimonAndréForsberg actually it should be -2 then
 
Hey @Prizoff
 
@SimonAndréForsberg but the use case is to vague
@Prizoff hi there
 
@Prizoff as you might have seen, I removed my (somewhat negative) comment on your answer. Your answer is a much better version of what the OP had anyways, and I'm not yet sure of how fast my approach will be.
 
12:21 PM
what about { 1, 2 ,-5, 1, 1, 1 }
 
I will really up-vote all the answers on this question later.
 
return the 1-2 or the 1-1-1
 
There could be a good optimisation, actually..
 
@chillworld Does it matter? :)
 
there is no need to count sum for elements multiple times...
 
12:22 PM
@SimonAndréForsberg actually they want the subarray so yes, if they wanted the sum no
 
Oh, they want the sub-array? I thought they just wanted the sum.
 
example: lets suppose we have array elements with indexes in sum: 3,4,5. Now, We go to the next iteration and count sum for elements with indexes: 2, 3, 4, 5. But we already counted sum for 3,4,5 - so, we can reuse it.
And this would be great optimisation.
 
Depends on how you will store it. But I think it can be a good optimization, yes.

chillworldIt's hard to say but if I get this with an interview, you will not pass. On the other hand, I'll find it good you come to here to learn. Number 1 is really red flags.

i.e. if you use a HashMap and a lot of objects for storing the sum, then it's probably not that efficient :)

@SimonAndréForsberg: I hope you read up on:
In computer science, the maximum subarray problem is the task of finding the contiguous subarray within a one-dimensional array of numbers (containing at least one positive number) which has the largest sum. For example, for the sequence of values −2, 1, −3, 4, −1, 2, 1, −5, 4; the contiguous subarray with the largest sum is 4, −1, 2, 1, with sum 6. The problem was first posed by Ulf Grenander of Brown University in 1977, as a simplified model for maximum likelihood estimation of patterns in digitized images. A linear time algorithm was found soon afterwards b...

I think I'll put my code up for review and see what people say about it

And perhaps do a refactoring

that really impressed me

Oh?
Perhaps I should give it a closer look later then
 
well at the end I need to solve it in c++ but I would also be interested in solutions in other languages
 
A question...
In my visual Console (that is just a TextArea + TextField) I noticed I have no get-methods so far (because it's visual), what get-methods would be expected do you guys think?
 
I can't follow the reasoning of
> I have no get-methods so far (because it's visual)
 
I didn't consider them yet.
And in unit testing I notice that I cannot actually test when someone types something
Would it be a good idea to expose the internal fields? As they are kind of external as being visible to the user anyhow
 
by user do you mean the programmer using your class or the one using the program where your class is used?
 
1:35 PM
The user as in the one using the program
Maybe a little picture can help
 
@skiwi End-user = guy using the program, us chatting here. User (when talking about a library) consumer of the library (someone using the chat API to make a bot)
Which is it?
 
I don't see why the visibilty to the user should break the encapsulation for the developer
 
@MadaraUchiha End-user
This is what the end-user sees
Yet the programmer cannot access the TextArea and TextField individually at all
 
@skiwi: Usually there are some requirements that justify the existence of getters/setters
 
I only made methods to directly print in the TextArea, to clear the TextArea and the TextField has a listener that on KeyCode.ENTER, it copies it's content to the TextArea and then clears itself
 
1:40 PM
I would say that it is not very useful
 
And this is working fine so far, that's not the issue, the issue is that I cannot really extensively test it now
 
it should be the user's (not enduser's) job to loop that input back into the output
@skiwi: Did you have a look at:
GUI testing tools serve the purpose of automating the testing process of software with graphical user interfaces. {| class="wikitable sortable" border="1" |- ! Name !! scope="col" width="150px" | Testing system requirement !! scope="col" width="150px" | System under test requirement !! Company !! GUI Test !! Automation !!

Well the fact that I offer both textarea and textfield in one class is because it's visually a single component... And input looping is a thing a regular console does as well
I didn't take a look at that yet
Is it correct that the tools themselves have nothing to do with the programming language?
 
I see no problem with tieing them together (yet) but you should definitely output the text to the programmer when enter is hit and let him decide wether to feed it back to the output
@skiwi I have not yet tested them myself (always planning, never doing ^^)

@Nobody Well... you've got to weed it out first ;)
 
@skiwi: your dutch, right?
 
2:01 PM
@Nobody Yes
 
that gives this sentence a nice ambiguity :)
 
I get it... I get it :P
Back to somewhat more serious
I just figured out that via other public getters and some casts you can get back the TextArea and TextField anyway... Do I then better not just provide getters?
 
I would not provide direct access to these two at all
 
TextArea textArea = (TextArea)console.getChildren().stream().filter(node -> node instanceof TextArea).findFirst().get();
Now I have my TextArea as well, knowing only one exists in each Console, withotu even knowing its position
So personally I think I'm more or less placing a burden on an API user by not providing it easily, but by having it accessible
(I think overriding getChildren() would break JavaFX in more ways than one)

2:21 PM
@Nobody My todolist is so long that it exceeds the lines of code.
@Nobody Erhm... I just noticed that my edit window in Eclipse is 209 characters wide. I see that I have one line exceeding that though.
 
@SimonAndréForsberg: Yeah it would be nice if you could post the code reformatted to 80 width (which fits exactly into the code window on SE)
this would speed up reviews ^^
 
Hi all, and sorry for not being there these times :(
 
215 characters. I win. :-)
Admittedly though, I give the project panel lots of space. A full width editor would be ungainly.
 
@Nobody I think 80 width is antique...
So I think that the SE-platform should scale up to 120
 
@skiwi: Yes it is old but still very widely used
I can easily fit two 80 column windows next to each other on my smallest width monitor
 
2:30 PM
@Nobody I'll try to think about that in the future. Perhaps it's a feature I could add to my
@Mat'sMug 116 bottles of rep on the wall!
 
one-space indentations solve the problem of the 80 character limit.
Short and meaningful names too.
Also, avoiding deep nesting and over-complexity in functions does the trick.
Overall, good code correctly designed, written and indented should almost never reach the 80 characters limit :p
 
@Morwenn: And on old machines you could still try to rotate the image 45 degrees and use the full width of the diagonal to gain up to 100 characters width :P

RedGate ANTS goes for $495, JetBrains' dotTrace for $199...
 
jvisualvm included with jdk.
 
M$ ships performance analysis tools with Visual Studio Ultimate
bah, I think my company has other issues to tackle before trying to optimize code performance..
but I might buy a dotTrace licence with a ReSharper upgrade for myself when I buy me a Visual Studio Pro license, somewhere before x-mas.
and then I can skip Holiday shopping and say I'm broke this year.
 
@Mat'sMug Or you can just switch to Java.
 
Yeah, but I don't like shopping ;)
 
I thought I was the last person refering to them as M$

@rolfl Would you want to share your experience with making methods final when working on JDOM for example?
I tend to move towards making getters final (and setters too?), where they are really the trivial ones, as I don't feel like unit testing subclasses as well.
 
@ckuhn203 If they make me chose between a new IDE and a new guitar this year, I'm calling them M$ ;)

this one deserves a +1 for using yield (I really need to develop this reflex), I'm right now... :(

A: DAL Returns a collection of business objects in MVP

Xiaoy312You don't want to pull the entire Employee table unless necessary. public IEnumerable<Employee> GetNewEmployees() { string selectStatement = "SELECT Employee.Emp_ID, Employee.Initials + ' ' + Employee.Surname AS Name,..."; using (SqlConnection sqlConnection = new SqlConnection(db.GetCo...

seriously, I need to start doing return IEnumerable<T> => yield return in my head. Now. Is there any reason why one wouldn't want to yield return their IEnumearble<T>?

A: A method which, given a string, returns a string in which each character is separated by an asterisk

Xiaoy312IMO recursion isn't best the way to solve this problem, you can read more about it here. Before all, let's just hack it for fun : public string InsertStringAfterEachCharacter(string input, string repeat) { return String.Join(repeat, input.Where(c => !char.IsWhiteSpace(c))); } Before w...

 
@SimonAndréForsberg - I was wrong ....
 
Fair enought @Mat'sMug. Fair enough.

@rolfl You were wrong? What have you done now, monkey?
Hey @Mat'sMug! 141 bottles at the moment. What's that 800 rep you were talking about?

@SimonAndréForsberg last week at this time, was much more than 141 ;)
 
@SimonAndréForsberg - your code is about 250 times faster than mine.

@SimonAndréForsberg docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/best_practices/… I wish I could make this nice stuff
@rolfl Are you sure you are using the result somewhere? ;)
 
@rolfl My code is about 250 times faster than what someone who's working on Watson and whom I consider being one of the best programmers I know of when it comes to the performance aspect of programming? I gotta remember this.
