An Introduction To Tcp/Ip : Learn-Networking.com. TCP/IP , or Transmission Control protocol/Internet Protocol, is literally the backbone of internet and network communication. The concepts of TCP/IP are difficult to grasp without previous experience, so don’t be dismayed if it doesn’t click instantly. To better help you out, we’ll start from the very beginning- with a definition of just what a network is. Networks, Protocols, and Suites, Oh My! A network is simply a collection of computers or similar devices that can communicate over a transmission medium. SS64. Codase - Source Code Search Engine.

Introduction to Computer Science. Dear student!

Introduction to Computer Science

You are starting to learn about computation and its purpose. This course covers the same materials as an introductory class for undergraduate computer science majors. Its curriculum, which includes software, hardware and algorithms, resembles that of a one- or two-semester first-year college course or the high school Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science. It does not require a formal computer science background. C Craft - Preface. Let me open with a disclaimer.

C Craft - Preface

What follows is an unabashedly opinionated diatribe certain to offend many programmers. Craftsmen inevitably grow defensive of their favourite tools and practices. Rather than respect this natural sensitivity, I will exploit it, shamelessly intensifying the vitriol for attention. I care little whether one applauds or deplores my views; I mainly want my audience to feel compelled to read on. Best Programming Quotations. A good programmer is someone who looks both ways before crossing a one-way street. -- Doug Linder, systems administrator A most important, but also most elusive, aspect of any tool is its influence on the habits of those who train themselves in its use.

Best Programming Quotations

If the tool is a programming language this influence is, whether we like it or not, an influence on our thinking habits. -- Edsger Dijkstra, computer scientist. A Double Handful of Programming Quotes. I'm busy tidying up a few loose ends with work at the moment, before family arrive for Xmas - and I just haven't have any time for in-depth articles.

C Craft - Chapter&1.&Introduction

This is my favourite statement from a talk Rob Pike gave in 2001. Despite its age, despite many flaws, C is still the de facto standard, the lingua franca. Why? As with other older languages, inertia is partly to blame, but this cannot be the only reason. C must possess a near-perfect balance of vital language features. Software Horror Stories.

Have you ever read through a chapter in one of those Learn Such and Such in 21 Seconds books and realized that somewhere along the way you had started daydreaming about how you would spend a trillion dollars if you were Bill Gates?

Well, it happens to me all the time. Computer books are boring. In fact, most technical writing out there bites the big one and there's no sign that the situation is going to get any better in the near future. The really unfortunate thing about this predicament is that now, more than any other period in the history of computing, is when we really need good, clear writing out there.

Whether the established priesthood of computer science likes it or not, the web has opened the flood gates and computer science is being secularized post haste. HTML and CSS Tutorials, References, and Articles. Mastering recursive programming. For new computer science students, the concept of recursive programming is often difficult.

Mastering recursive programming

Recursive thinking is difficult because it almost seems like circular reasoning. It's also not an intuitive process; when we give instructions to other people, we rarely direct them recursively. For those of you who are new to computer programming, here's a simple definition of recursion: Recursion occurs when a function calls itself directly or indirectly.

A classic example of recursion The classic example of recursive programming involves computing factorials. How To Become A Hacker. Computer Musings by Professor Donald E. Knuth. View Computer Musings, lectures given by Donald E.
