Demoed my project for a bunch of companies today.
Paccar said they came out just for my project and it is the best one they have ever seen a Western student do.
All the people who asked for resumes I told them I was working on a fishing boat and doing another quarter of school, they asked if I could back out of fishing…
The sound of turning down too much money.
Anyway, I have a buncha jobs lined up when I finish school in December; let the bidding war begin.
Holy shit I hope I get student aid.
Worst part about reading code from hobbyist sites; they replace coding conventions with, “style”.
If you are working with finite variables, in C, using the ‘int’ datatype is the dumbest shit ever. The only possible reason one would use int is they are a very, very careful coder and are looking to be portable from 8->64 bit systems. Meaning you can’t use pointers, bit shifting, or any absolute memory addressing without great difficulty.
Just another one of the divides between embedded systems EE’s and computer science majors.
