    Best answer: Where do people get the idea that there is an age limit?

    There is no age limit, but the fact that you posed this question makes we wonder if you have the ability.

    The way someone learns if they are able to learn coding is to go ahead and try.

    But it seems like you are looking for an excuse not to try. So, that implies that you don't WANT to learn.

    However, if you DO want to learn then I will suggest you start with Python.

  • Are desktop PC programs created differently than mobile programs?

    I've heard about a growing "shift to mobile." In terms of programming/design, is it THAT different? Why would a program like Facebook, for example, be different on a mobile device like a phone vs. its use on a PC. I don't get the big fuss.

  • What do I have to do to get a computer programming job without a degree?

    Best answer: Post your stuff on GitHub and ask prospective employers to take a look at it. If you can get an interview, part of that involves timed coding tests, where you can demonstrate proficiency. CS programs don't teach students how to code. They teach them how to think and they weed out the non-hackers. Coding is... show more

  • How do computer programs deal with infinities?

    Best answer: This is typically only an issue with floating point number formats. Most computers use a standard (IEEE 754) to represent floating point numbers. That standard defines bit patterns that stand for "+ infinity" and "- infinity", and also defines what results should be produced when infinities are used in arithmetic and other operations.

    However, these special "infinity" values really are simply encodings for values too large to represent.

    That standard also has a different set of bit patterns to represent "Not a Number" or NaN values. An earlier answer has these two ideas (infinity v. NaN) mixed up. These have "quiet" and "signalling" versions. Trying to use a "signalling" NaN as a data value will generate an exception--if those exceptions are enabled. (They usually aren't) Trying to use an infinite value as a data value generally won't.

    There also five defined types of exceptions that can be thrown, but implementations may suppress these and most will simply produce a result (infinity or NaN). "Divide by zero" is often trapped as an exception. Python does that, for example, but both Java and all the C++ implementations I've used will produce an infinity value quietly.

    For integer data types, there is no infinity. Computers do integer arithmetic as "modular arithmetic" with the modulus being some large power of 2, nearly always 2^(number of bits in the data type).

    Best answer: Expecting a student to have done a project is absurd. A student is expected to do the necessary assignments in their classes.

    Best answer: Expecting a student to have done a project is absurd.

    A student is expected to do the necessary assignments in their classes. The result is a final grade, and these are combined into a transcript and the granting of a degree.

    You learn about projects when you start your first job. An employer who hires entry-level people should be expecting to mentor them.

    If you have good grades from a good school then say that to anyone who doubts your credentials.
