Image Transcription: Meme

['Expanding brain' meme]

"Small brain": using github

"Normal brain": sending the source files

"Shining brain": copy-pasting the code

"Shining brain with light rays going out of it": taking scrreenshots of the code

"Exploding brain": taking a picture of the code with your phone

"A person, shining outside": printing the code and faxing it

"A person, shining from inside": printing the code and mailing it

"A ghost-like person in space, 'holding' a galaxy": writing down the code and taking a picture of the paper

"A ghost-like person with multiple arms, in space, 'holding' a different shining things, and also has a tree growing on his head": sending an audio recording of yourself reading the code

"A person between shining wormhole exits, in space": calling the other person and reading the code

"An eye, inside a circle, inside a triangle, behind a planet, in space": starting a video call and using sign language to communicate the code

I'm a human volunteer content transcriber for Reddit! If  you'd like more information on what we do and why...

Real programmers share their code through medium of interpretive dance.

Good human

You forget the latest way to share code:

Yes, it could be. We also have a bot in our sub, that tries to get text from a picture. In many cases you just need to copy-paste the result, format it properly and fix a few small errors, and the transcription is done.

This could be automatized right? With some data scrubbing and image recognition. At least for the memes. Hm, I could try if they would accept this for a Bachelor thesis.

It basically allows Google docs style editing on your project, Saros has been doing a similar thing with eclipse for a while.

I've used it before for team work and it is very useful.

I used to share my stored procedures via interpretive native American rain dances. Things were going well until I pulled my hamstring. Now I play it safe and email a screen shot of my printed off email captioning my code in hieroglyphics.

They forgot writing the code out by hand and sending it via Morse Code or telegram.

I don't use Atom or VSCode. But TBH I would really dislike the idea of multiple people simultaneously editing a file in the same environment.

Isn't sharing keyboards. Am disappoint.

How well does this work? VSCode just announced something similar and it seems pretty interesting.
