FAQ

What are some of the best ways to learn programming?
It's been my sole focus to answer this question for the last two years, and I think a lot of the resources mentioned here are great but I've noticed there are three strategies that successful students consistently use better than anyone else regardless of what resources they use:1. Focus on habits, not goals2. Learning alone is painful3. Build thingsNote: some of this is borrowed from my answer to another Quora question: How can I prepare for Bloc?1. Focus on habits, not goalsIt seems counterintuitive that you shouldn't focus on goals, but hear me out -- it's all about leverage. Anyone who works with me knows that I dweebishly reference the R'as Al Ghul scene in Batman Begins pretty much 3-4 times a day:Our investors at Bloc are getting tired of board meetings starting with Batman clips.R'as tells Bruce: "Rub your chest, your arms will take care of themselves."If you focus on building the habit of programming for 20-30 hours a week, you will reach your goal of being a web developer. If you focus on the goal of being a web developer in X months, you get nothing from that but stress and insecurity about how far along you are. Focus on the habit, not the goal. Rub your chest, your arms will take care of themselves.So here's what you should do right now: put 15 minutes a day on your calendar to spend time programming. Don't do more than 15, just focus on doing 15 minutes a day. If you can do it successfully with no excuses for a week, try bumping it up to 20 minutes a day. Don't try to overextend yourself by doing an hour a day right off the bat, this is going to be a 10,000 hour marathon so we're focusing on developing the habit right now. The number of minutes you put in isn't as important as you showing up each day.2. Learning alone is painfulWhen I was learning web development, the two biggest social components to my learning were having a mentor and belonging to a community.Having a mentorI worked at a small startup called merge.fm while in college. I learned more in the summer I spent working with one of their cofounders than I did in the entire previous year at my university. There's just something about working alongside an expert who knows more than you that really accelerates your learning, you're able to pick up on how they think and unveil what you don't know you don't know. There's a reason why mentorship used to be the de facto standard of learning a new trade, it's very effective.Belonging to a communityFor me, the two communities I belonged to were the Illini Entrepreneurship Network (a student organization at my university) and HackerNews (a large hacker/startup oriented online community).I didn't learn what objects and classes were from HackerNews, but I learned a different category of things. I learned that nobody likes Javascript. I learned that Rubyists are the hipsters of programming. I learned that Bret Taylor, Rich Hickey, and John Carmack are programming gods, and that software companies that are truly serious about coffee have kitchens that look like meth labs.In short, I learned how to talk shop. That turns out to be important when you're working with other developers, but it's also the thing that makes you feel like a developer.3. Build thingsIn the first year of learning web development, I built:A Digg Clone (from a Sitepoint book on Rails, I believe it's out of date now though)An E-Commerce App (from Agile Web Development with Rails 4)A GeekSquad-esque App (personal project)A Realtime, Online Classroom (personal project)A Foreign Language Flashcard App (class project)I think building real projects is important for many reasons, but the most important one to me is because it's fun. That's something that is tragically lost in classical education, but I think it's important enough to be on this list. Look for resources that show you how to build things, http://ruby.railstutorial.org/ is a good one.4. Be a cockroachI secretly added a 4th item for those of you who've stuck around to read this far down the page.Paul Graham once told the founders of Airbnb:"You guys won’t die, you’re like cockroaches."You'll probably want to quit learning how to code at some point. Like anything worthwhile, it's difficult and will make you feel stupid at times. This is why #1 on this list is so important -- stop worrying so much about whether you're making progress or how much longer it'll be until you feel like you've "made it." All you have to do is focus on showing up, for 10-30 hours a week. Be as mindless as a cockroach about everything else, and don't "die."I made the statement years ago which is often quoted that 80 percent of life is showing up. People used to always say to me that they wanted to write a play, they wanted to write a movie, they wanted to write a novel, and the couple of people that did it were 80 percent of the way to having something happen. All the other people struck out without ever getting that pack. They couldn’t do it, that’s why they don’t accomplish a thing, they don’t do the thing, so once you do it, if you actually write your film script, or write your novel, you are more than half way towards something good happening. So that I would say was say my biggest life lesson that has worked. All others have failed me.Woody Allen
Why do ex-employers refuse to fill out the VA form 21-4192 for a vet?
VA Form 21–4192 is an application for disability benefits and like similar state benefits, it must be filled out by the veteran or by his or her qualified representative. This is a private, sensitive, legal document and every dot or dash in it can be critical, so must be accurate and verifiable.Employers have zero responsibility to fill out this form or furnish information for it, however, Social Security would have all the information required that the Department of Defense did not have. The veteran’s DD-214 is likely required, but does not furnish all the information required on the form.
How do I fill out the academic background section in the Oakland University masters program?
Talk about your undergraduate research (senior thesis), any academic honors, any projects you assisted with, and note one or two strong writing samples. I don’t know for sure what their application entails, but many graduate programs want to know about these.
Is it compulsory to apply for various MBA programs during registration for SNAP as I have filled out only one program i.e., MBA SIBM?
No it's not compulsory if your choice is only for symbiosis then you have to appear only in SNAP.Symbiosis is one of the top colleges of India so you should prepare well for SNAP.They will ask for more than 90 percentile to get any college of symbiosis.After that you have to appear for GDPI along with WAT(written aptitude test).Thanks and best of luck.
How much money have you made from the Quora Partner Program?
A2AThat’s kind of a personal question. I’m curious why you asked me specifically.I haven’t worked it a full month yet. More like 3 weeks. I’ve earned $145. I just think of questions while I’m watching TV.How much do you make a month with Quora?UPDATE 10/23/2018My first month payout was $300.00+From reading the replies here, I guess I did ok. I’m set to do about the same for my second month. That said, I spend WAY too much time creating questions and clicking answer requests.I had one question earn over $100 my first month. It was a big incentive. I also had several daily earns of $20 or more. That was enough of a motivation to continue and put time into it. The second month’s daily earns are much smaller. Lowest is about $6 and highest was $25. No big hit questions.I can not make hide nor hair of the algorithm. I only know my best earning questions are those where either external OR internal has 99% (or close to it) of the traffic. If the % of traffic splits something like 60/40, the question earns less. I’m unsure how to manipulate where traffic comes from. But if the question is all external, I leave it alone, no more A2As, and let it earn.Here are some things I’ve tried:I found I could easily come up with 20 random questions in an hour. But since my month 2 hasn’t been that great, I have tried asking A LOT of questions. I read you could ask 60 a day. So I tried that. Still good questions. But it doesn’t matter, because you still get a finite number of ASKS per day. (I’ve since been told there is no limit to the number of questions per day you can ask, just the number of people or A2As)I have tried re-ASKING on questions that earn or seem still relevant. That adds pennies day by day.I have tried focusing on ‘nurturing’ questions especially that have close to 1000 views or above, because that shows initial potential to writers. So I was thinking if it had more answers to balance out, maybe the traffic quotient would take care of itself. Very time consuming once you have over 2k questions. And it did not seem to make a huge difference. But it is a method I will continue for lack of a better one. I am splitting my A2As between questions now, asking 20 on one, 15 on another, maybe even 10 on some. Just to cover more of my questions. Since it takes hours to both create new questions, decide on A2As, I’m thinking about stopping the new questions and just trying to get existing questions more views. *shrugs*I have tried looking at WHO I’m asking to answer, selecting those with the most followers. Quora no longer displays # of followers on category lists. It didn’t work that well anyway. I rationalized that someone with 25k followers would be less likely to answer my question because they are loaded down with A2As probably. But on the off chance that one did answer, their followers might read/visit my question page. So after that wasn’t really effective, I tried asking people with 20, 40, 100 followers thinking they’d have more time to answer and also might be wanting to write and build a following. Didn’t make much difference. The same people are likely to answer my questions and I’m starting to recognize names and personalities now.I still try not to ask the same people a lot of questions because those I ask tend to be on the same or similar topic within a category that would easily show me the same list of names from question to question.Now I’m feeling a little frustrated because daily earning $10–11 without at least one viral question isn’t fun! And I am now earning a few pennies on questions that have ZERO ad impressions shown. Someone please clear up that mystery for me? It makes me mistrust the system just a little.Another thing, about merged questions. I don’t get many of those anymore thankfully. But the Quora bot seems to merge questions that are often unrelated but contain the same keyword. For example: ‘app’. If one question asks what an app can do, and another asks what app you use for a specific purpose, it’s not a merge, IMO because the answers would be different.It doesn’t help me that Quora updates earnings after 4 am. I am unable to go to bed until I know if my efforts were on the right path. I despise an unknown. But that is all I have, still. Unknown variables, a lot of time put in guessing, and a bit of disappointment that daily earnings aren’t worth the effort.Finally, I came across a ‘partner’ who asks questions like this:What is 8+8+8+8x8+8+8+8+8+8x8+8?Dozens and dozens of questions on his profile like that one. And ironically many of them answered 50 times!! THAT guy might be onto something.Cheers all and let’s make some money!
