If Google stops supporting them, the backlash will be pretty severe.
Ridiculous. Any chromebook that is updateable can have its OS replaced with Andromeda.
K&R C could be considered portable assembly at one time (but a bloated one). Those days are long gone. Abstraction is for humans; abstraction is bloat for microprocessors.
Except most microcontrollers don't implement embedded java.
They don't suck at everything; they just suck at managing. Its because they think their excellence in academia and theory means they don't have to learn from lessons in real life. They're constantly reinventing the wheel when it comes to business and human resource management.
Its common sense. There's almost no amount of money that Google can throw at their autonomous car lead developers that can match a tech startup. It implies there's an amount of generous salary that will discourage developers from going startup. But Google hires alpha developers who understand what it means to be a successful startup.
I really don't even believe Google is the cutting edge of autonomous car development. I'm guessing its Tesla, because they have the closest thing to a functioning autonomous car. Its probably a story planted by Google and other leading autonomous car companies that just want to drive down the salaries they currently pay to their employees in this field. At this point, Google is probably holding back progress, because they want a surefire profitable model without going through all the regulatory and civil litigation its going to require to roll it out.
I look at computer languages as a designed tool to best express what the programmer wants accomplished. If the programmer has to conform to the tool, or recreate the wheel every time they program something, or have to relearn how to do things in the language in order to do something useful, then its not a good tool/language. C has the ability to interface with assembly, and it has some higher level abstractions which makes programming easier than assembly. But for a 1K chip, you probably have to discard stuff like stdio just to get code to fit in that space. And while its easier to get a C programmer to do something useful for that chip (because at least they know C), that C programmer will probably have to learn a boatload of esoterica (ways of doing things) for that environment to be an effective developer. If the programmer is the least bit sloppy, the C compiler will allow a completed binary to be larger than the available working environment. Therefore, C is not a language defined to help a programmer create code while the language helps manage the environment's constraints. (I wish I knew what the term was...) Ideally, there should be language for 1K chip environments to significantly ease development, but I guess assembler would be the only alternative that could fit the bill (unless you can use FORTH).
Regardless of C falling in popularity (if legitimate) it's unlikely to be buried any time in the next 50 years given its use in the core of everything from OSs to 1K microcontroller firmware.
Just like COBOL, although I still think that COBOL programs will decline in percentage of business computing as time passes. As a sidenote, I find it sad that C is used in 1K microcontroller firmware. Where would it payoff in either space efficiency or developer "friendliness"?
You need to include a link to your primary source for your story.
You may have blown it if you're not going in as an independent contractor (which you'd at least need to be an S Corporation). But a lot of what you're describing that you would like to do can be written off your federal taxes. If the employer is paying for all of this, then they're the one that gets the tax break. Talk to your tax preparer (who also would be "useful" for an S corporation. But a real small business tax guy, not some dork at H&R Block).
He can be sane, but it doesn't change the fact that he damaged his company with his actions. Making common expressions of violent imagery is not reflective of actual fantacizing, and firing
I like the new digg. Not so sure about reddit anymore.
I think its what makes it enjoyable. Irony is entertaining.
You are a fool, or a clever public media spin doctor. No one thinks
