51:19mr4thdimention (This is slightly related to one thing you said) I have been getting the feeling that programmers in general are bad at taking objective measurements of things like "how good am I?", with maybe the exception of how long a chunk of code takes. Would you agree with that assessment and do you think we suffer a lot because of it?

55:12tinyconstruct Somewhat related / a final update on the TA we talked about. His talk on ray tracer efficiency when he got to the GPU side of things basically broke down into "Use OptiX, GPU programming is hard." So... I don't even know, dude

56:55burgerlove_ Let's say you are someone who is really drawn to starting and growing your own projects in a tough industry like this. While some people are getting experience at big studios, you're fighting through the details of smaller projects. Do you think in the long run it could really hurt you because of how you look on paper?

59:28jasperps My largest frustration currently is that large sections of my code currently get rejected or rewritten in review. Is there are anything I can do proactively to help myself write more efficient code, i.e. teach myself how to approach some problems better? A lot of the patterns I used regularly are turning out to be sub-optimal

1:03:11empiretycoon Hey Casey! I'm new to programming, have been studying Information System for two years. My problem is, I can't start projects at all, I always get stuck and by the end of the day I get nothing done. All that I wanted was to start something to improve my skills. Been following the stream for a while, what should I do?
