Coding Puzzle #2 - Balanced Brackets.

"Given strings of brackets, determine whether each sequence of brackets is balanced."

Here's how I approached it in .

Why didn't the Terminator upgrade to Windows 10? 

I asked him, and he said, "I still love Vista, baby!"

While I'm new to Mastodon, and not sure if I'll be overly active, as my contribution to the , I am into:





I'm happy to answer Swift related questions, as well.

@mkflint Not interested. Social media clients aren't for me. I'm more into smaller utilities for my side projects.

I've neglected my site for too long. So I'm start up a series of Swift related articles. For now, I'm going to tackle some Coding Puzzles I've been following. It's a fun diversion from my usual coding.

@henning They still use the old 4:3 resolution from the 3.5-inch screen days. I think it is now 4-inch (16:9) as of iOS 12?

Some very common reasons that I write code:

👨‍🎓 To learn a new pattern, tool or technique
👩‍🔬 To experiment with a new idea
🤔 To check if something is even possible
🏃‍♂️ To test my own skills & limits
😊 For fun

Not all the code we write has to be for production 👍

@colincornaby I wonder if that could be moved to the GPU?

Now that you've mentioned this, I wonder if it would require an upgrade to the ISP in the iPhones, meaning it would require new hardware.

@colincornaby Just like the iOS 11 APIs supported existing hardware, presumably any support for RAW data from a video stream would also work, especially as Apple seems to like rolling out new APIs for more than just the latest devices (unless it physically requires new hardware, like depth sensing). But in this case, the data is technically there, just not yet accessible.

@colincornaby So the RAW image data support is just for stills but not yet for video?

I'm wondering if there's a good group of iOS developers on here, or if there is a different instance better suited for that. 🤔

Let's see if I can get this Mastodon thing set up.

Profile? ✅ (I think)
People to follow? Uh... okay, working on that one.

@schlink Thanks for the tip! I just figured out that I can follow someone in another instance. Though I have yet to figure out how to see all of those posts...?

Mastodon for Tech Folks

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
