I've been handling hard for decades....if you catch my drift.

Hey....it's fark!

Phrasing?

They're making shirts now too? I thought it was just pants.

im no fan of duke but the whole thing sounds like sour grapes from someone who couldnt get in.

/did not rtfa
//why would i?

This is supposed to inspire me to ... work harder? No thanks.

Obviously someone who just does physical stuff. I've been programming for 30+ years, and it's definitely gotten easier. Hell, people can make video games with little to no programming ability at all compared to the Apple II days.

Subby, I hate you for making me like ANYTHING originating from Duke.  And I love that speech.

I feel ya, but not just for physical stuff. You are a better programmer because of your experience, not because the tools have gotten better. I'm sure you copy and paste old routines instead of recreating them, I know I do. You solved it once, no need to solve it again. You are handling hard better.

It's still a good speech for the young bucks.

This is one of those things most people just do as they age but when you hear someone say it like this, it sounds inspiring and ground-breaking. Especially to young folks who are still learning/growing.

But no. This is just something that folks do throughout their life but they don't recognize it or name it.

Um, I'll have you know that I was given a Staples Easy Button as a gift years ago, and I still have it. So nice speech, but I'm covered.

Middle manager being paid upwards of a million dollars a year, speaking to a group of unpaid employees being exploited (by the institution that's supposed to be educating them) in a for-profit venture for which they will never be compensated:

"You need to harden the fark up when we abuse you, because the abuse is making you a better person.  Yes, of course 'better' means 'more obedient slave who takes even more exploitation and abuse without complaint', I'm astounded you needed me to spell that out for you explicitly, idiot."

Yes... inspiring.

You think a black woman middle manager is getting paid a 7 figure salary?

It's a good speech to anyone that's new to whatever venture comes along.  I have a newbie supervisor that is really flailing around because this was a huge step up in responsibility for them.  They are discovering that the new title, modest salary bump and new desk perch come with new hassles and responsibilities.  Life is not easier for them and they are not liking it these days.

My new boss needs to hear this speech, but would immediately discount it because of the speaker's race and gender.  Jerk.

Duke sucks because it is named after a man who made his fortune by selling cigarettes.

Hello world in Apple ][ BASIC:

Power on.
10 PRINT "HELLO, WORLD"
RUN

Hello world in modern Javascript applications

(short form, some steps missing)
install node.js
run command prompt
npx create-react-app hello-world
notepad hello-world/src/index.js
import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom/client';
const root = ReactDOM.createRoot(document.getElementById('root')); root.render(<h1>Hello, world!</h1>);
npm run start
open browser
go to localhost:3000

...

the domain got much, much more complex, and you are able to work within it more easily.
Because you've mastered the easier parts.
