Tech Talk

[ #28678 ]
The typical work related chats are typically in l33t spE4k. Yesterdays chat started when one of my co-workers explained how he was calculating factors in Python. He explained that the whitespace matters and what he liked and disliked about Python and showed me some code. Since he knows some perl, I then asked him how he would swap 2 variables in Python and in perl. I then explained how the () = () trick works in perl and he was a bit baffled. *Bring in the obfu* I also showed him my Edgar Allen Poe tribute obfu and he started grinning.. I demonstrated my cms and he was pleasantly surprised about the speed and the backend code. We ended up talking about making money with software you wrote.

I promised him to show some source filter stuff next time. That should be fun :)
