What level of programmer are you?

Recommended Posts

LOL. You've got too much time on your hands Barand. This is an excellent thread.

Well, I'm no Harry Fuecks. I do write web apps for a living, so I've got to be at least a professional at PHP, SQL and JS.

Here's my philosophy on the subject. I think that its important here to differentiate between knowing the science of programming and learning the art of programming. You can learn how to do everything possible in Photoshop, but that doesn't make you an artist. In the same way, you can memorize the php manual and be a master of oop. But the art part is figuring out how to write apps that will be adaptable to new situations; be easily configurable; how to store your information efficiently in your databases; interact with your users in a clean and understandable interface. The science can be taught in a book or learned in a tutorial. The art part takes much longer to grasp and for that you need experience.

$biscuit = "random stuff";
$md5 ($biscuit);

If you do that, then you can't crack biscuits.

Yes, I also found a database of cracked versions (the hashes).  You can enter a has into it to see if a collision is present.

Here you can see they already have a majority of it's "Algorithm" figured out.
I don't understand what about it can't be cracked, but for some reason it can't.
