programming socks are largely optimized for a specific kind of programming (functional), whereas other outfits are good for other kinds of programming. such as maid outfits, which are for well-structured c code
@SuricrasiaOnline what's a good "I want to learn rust but every time I watch a tutorial I zone out" outfit
@synthgal idk why, but pink-striped elbow-length fingerless gloves come to mind. I cannot explain it
@synthgal that or a bottle of club mate because it was under the influence of that soda that I wrote the most amount of rust I've ever written
@SuricrasiaOnline what's a good outfit for "I need to understand this Java code well enough to ask an engineer what the hell is going on"?
@SuricrasiaOnline oooh so that’s what my students truly need. Does a maid outfit also helps with memory management in general?
@SuricrasiaOnline I’ve found a few references to that mnemonic, but I also found the following: “Memory Allocation Incentivises its Destruction”. That’s also quite enlightening!
@SuricrasiaOnline That explains why they never much appealed to me. Any suggestions for object-oriented programming in arbitrary scripting languages?
@SuricrasiaOnline I wonder what is best paired with just wearing shorts and pantyhose. Is there a difference between sheer glossy black and suntan with reinforced toes?
@SuricrasiaOnline so i'm interested in this. why are programming socks particularly good for functional programming? i ask not in the belief that a wholly logical answer exists but that it follows on from something nonetheless.
