Freelance job forums?

I remember the good old times when we had tons of job offers here, specifically in Programming section, but now .. close to 0 (a few in a week or two doesn't count).

Since I believe this hasn't happened due to the fact that everyone all of a sudden knows what they are doing themselves and don't need any help, I'm wondering ..:

  • are those things now being posted on other (which?) forums?
  • is everyone in need really posting such things on freelancing sites (not forums)?

unity – Worker threads are not being utilized in Time rewind system, is this job system really multi-threaded?

I am trying to make a simple time rewind mechanic. It’s working but it becomes slower as number of game objects increases. I decided to give Job System a shot. My idea is to interpolate between positions and rotations for N game objects in parallel. It is certainly running faster than single thread execution.

However, when I see the profiler, the worker threads are sitting idle.

Here’s the screenshot:

enter image description here

And here’s the IJob code:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

(BurstCompile)
struct RewindJob : IJob
{
    public int RewindableIndex;
    (ReadOnly)
    public NativeArray<Vector3> positions;
   
    public NativeArray<Vector3> finalPositions;
    public float currentTime;

    public void Execute()
    {
       //rewind code for interpolating b/w positions
    }
}

and this is how I schedule RewindJob for each entity like this in main thread:

NativeArray<Vector3> finalPositions = new NativeArray<Vector3>(m_Objects.Count, Allocator.TempJob);

for (int i = 0; i < m_Objects.Count; i++)
{
    NativeArray<Vector3> positions = new NativeArray<Vector3>(count, Allocator.TempJob); ;

    TimeRewindable rewindable = m_Objects(i);

    for(int yo = 0; yo < count; yo++)
    {
        positions(yo) = rewindable.m_Transforms(yo).position;
    }

    RewindJob rewindJob = new RewindJob();
    rewindJob.finalPositions = finalPositions;
    rewindJob.positions = positions;
    rewindJob.RewindableIndex = i;

    JobHandle handle = rewindJob.Schedule() ;
    handle.Complete();
    positions.Dispose();
}

for(int i = 0; i < m_Objects.Count; i++)
{
    m_Objects(i).transform.position = finalPositions(i);
    m_Objects(i).transform.rotation = finalRotations(i);
}

finalPositions.Dispose();
finalRotations.Dispose();

What I can understand is it’s not real multi-threading but context switching. Can anyone just explain a little bit what’s happening? Thanks.

java – How to write springboot job to listen for a result of a search page which is PHP

Sorry guys if it is trivial, but I have no idea how to write a spring boot job that searches in a PHP web page.

So there is a PHP web page, where you can find some search field and a button which will give you the results based on the search fields.

I have always the main URL, like https://some.page.com/subpage/searchforsomething.php#
Under F12 (with a browser) I can see the following:

Request URL: https://some.page.com/subpage/searchforsomething.php
Request Method: POST
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

and some Form Data which holds the search filters:

some_search(search_type)(living_search_type): somedummydata

And of course a lot of other data which maybe not necessary.

I know how to write REST API applications, but I have no idea how I could write some scheduled-code to listen to the results of a PHP search site.

So is it possible somehow?

python – Processing Batch Job

Validation

This function _is_player_id_list_valid is stuck between two useful concepts – validating and returning bool, and throwing-or-not. Don’t attempt to do a half-measure of both. Given its current name, it would be less surprising to do

for player_id in provided_player_id_list:
    if player_id not in all_player_id_list:
        return False
return True

If you want to keep the exception, then

  • Delete the return
  • Change the return type to None
  • Use a more specific type than Exception
  • Rename the method to something like check_player_id_list.

For this method you should also get rid of the loop, cast the lists to sets, use set intersection, and then base your error message off of all of the missing elements instead of just the first.

Late serialization

Validation should be done on tranche_date. The sanest way to do this is expect a date of a specific format (which you probably already do, though you haven’t shown it); parse it into a real datetime (or perhaps date), and then re-serialize it in _get_all_player_id. Its representation should only be str at the extreme edges of your program – in your argument parsing, and in your S3 call. In the middle it should be a real date type.

Error messages

except BatchTimeoutException:
    print(f"Jobs are known to fail due data missingness.")

is… a little strange. You could print this and it would still be valid even if there were no timeout. Instead perhaps consider

    print('Batch timed out. Data may be missing.')

Note that this does not need to be an f-string. Also, what data?

How to extract current job information from LinkedIn to Google Sheet automatically?

Let’s imagine I have a Google Sheet to track current job status of past employees. Within the tab which I keep the information, there are three columns: Names, Link to LinkedIn profile, Current Job. I could update the job status manually by opening the LinkedIn profile of each past employee and check for the relevant information. But I’d like to know if it is possible to automate the task. Any idea how this could be done (on Google Sheet, if possible)?

Thank you!
