    >using chat gpt for your code
    yes, commiting kys might be a good idea here

      What am I supposed to do if I literally cannot come up with a solution? The code it provided was fine, it was literally user error
      Using chatgpt in this case is no different than asking a college or professor

        work your algorythmics, kiddo
        you can do that by solving classical problems, and broadening your general culture.
        the latter part is bc general knowledge improves lateral thinking

        chat gpt never provides you with an answer.
        it provide you with something that LOOKS like an answer.
        its not good enough for coding.

          he literally said the code works moron, you can't just assert that it doesn't because you wish that was the case

        i mean recursive solution to fibonnaci
        write a 2.5d wolfenstein clone

          I tried but chatgpt was the same without having to find the actual post and just giving me the answer directly. what's the difference between googling and chatgpt?
          I do want to get better at figuring things out on my own, I did fine when it was simple stuff but as it gets harder my brain gives up

          I will try to find problems and solving them you're right I do need to grind this shit to actually improve

            yeah, the brain is a muscle.
            dont listen to people who say something is out of your reach
            but dont expect to understand everything at once overnight either
            a good methodology in learning/training is key.
            first you will learn your strengths and limitations, then you will learn to be effecttive with your resources and finally you will learn how to go around said limits
            with a winner's attitude, youre gonna make it

            Also I swear to God I'm doing my best to understand everything about whatever code I get or find, I might not come up with it but I break it down and internalize it, it's not the best method to learn for sure but can't be that bad?

              formal cs studies is always best bc you get to learn a curated package, in a proper order
              short of that you might try your luck with reputed courses.

              i tried edx.com for finances. its decent. not perfect, but decent.
              a friend of mine became data scientist with their courses, so it cant be bad in CS subjects

              as self taught, one problem i often faced was that i chose subjects that are too complicated for my then-level of knowledge, which made learning painful and ineffective.

              you might also try the personal project route.
              pick something that will make you use a variety of techniques, like a wolfenstein clone in C or C++, then ask your way through it.
              when you ask someone they have to do all the job of compiling and then presenting their knowledge to you. so dont be afraid to be wrong, and hear an insult here and there, if it makes your learning easier and more effective

              i like that wolfenstein subject bc if you render in your cpu you have to produce decent code to keep your fps high.
              that was the occasion where i internalized jump tables, and branchless in general
              also i played around with memory bc i had to have an internal representation of the game and its assets, and render the right one at the right place.
              but that example works for C-craft. If you want to go into other subjects, pick accordingly.
              jump tables and binary operations wont be very useful in high level environments like front end webdev.
              they will add to your lateral thinking capacity, but it is something you want to build up in the long term, and it isnt very useful without core knowledge

            Chatgpt not always gives you working and applicable results, which is not great if you can'tunderstand what code does. It is better with stackoverflow because you can see if problem description matches your problem and working solution for it you can simply copy paste

    i really fricking hate this trend of having multiple things named the same
    classes and variables and all the other shit being named the same in loops is fricking moronic

    how about a follow up prompt like "this looks good but I need help understanding it. Can you explain what this is doing step by step?"
    It's really good at that.
