Read and Learn – part 5 – The programming library

without comments

Ran into this post on HackerNews describing this page on StackOverflow with a huge list of freely available ebooks covering nearly every aspect of computer programming.

Again: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/194812/list-of-freely-available-programming-books



Really worth checking out.

Read and learn – part 4: CoffeeScript

without comments

So after Read and learn – part 1: PerlRead and learn – part 2: Python and Read and learn – part 3: Objective C, we will continue with part 4: CoffeeScript.

This book is completely open source, and was written by Alex MacCaw (or @maccman) with great contributions from David GriffithsSatoshi Murakami, and Jeremy Ashkenas.

CoffeeScript is a little language that compiles down to JavaScript. The syntax is inspired by Ruby and Python, and implements many features from those two languages. This book is designed to help you learn CoffeeScript, understand best practices and start building awesome client side applications. The book is little, only five chapters, but that’s rather apt as CoffeeScript is a little language too.

Read and learn – part 3: Objective C

without comments

So after Read and learn – part 1: Perl and Read and learn – part 2: Python, we will continue with part 3: Objective C.

This tutorial is written and illustrated by Scott Stevenson

Objective-C is the primary language used to write Mac software. If you’re comfortable with basic object-oriented concepts and the C language, Objective-C will make a lot of sense. If you don’t know C, you should read the C Tutorial first.

Read and learn – part 2: Python

with one comment

So after Read and learn – part 1: Perl we will continue with part 2: Python.

The document I found will give you a crash course Python, written by Stephen Sugden

Crash into Python is a set of documents/slides that are meant to be used as a teaching aid for bringing programmers from other languages up to speed with Python. It assumes that you have enough familiarity with programming to know what function and class mean, and will recognize that print probably doesn’t put ink on paper. More importantly, it assumes that you either have an instructor who is well-versed in Python, or are resourceful enough to find answers for yourself. A number of these slides are designed to trigger questions and discussion, so if it seems like you’re missing something, that’s a good sign you could be digging deeper.

Read and learn – part 1: Perl

with 3 comments

It’s about  time I post something useful again over here.
That’s why I’m  posting a series of links to pages where you can actually learn things. *insert awkward silence*

Anyway, I’m starting of with a couple of pages where you can either learn a new programming language OR increase your productivity looking at your current environment.

We will start the series with a document written for the purpose of learning Perl, written by Sam Hughes

Perl is a dynamic, dynamically-typed, high-level, scripting (interpreted) language most comparable with PHP and Python. Perl’s syntax owes a lot to ancient shell scripting tools, and it is famed for its overuse of confusing symbols, the majority of which are impossible to Google for. Perl’s shell scripting heritage makes it great for writing glue code: scripts which link together other scripts and programs. Perl is ideally suited for processing text data and producing more text data. Perl is widespread, popular, highly portable and well-supported. Perl was designed with the philosophy “There’s More Than One Way To Do It” (TMTOWTDI) (contrast with Python, where “there should be one – and preferably only one – obvious way to do it”).
