An Introduction To Tcp/Ip : 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

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. There is also a gentler Introduction to Computers for non-majors, and a basic course focusing on programming that is taught in several computer languages.

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 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.

A Double Handful of Programming Quotes

So instead of my own words, here's a few of my favourites from other people: "Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

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. Copyright © 2001 Eric S.

How To Become A Hacker

Raymond As editor of the Jargon File and author of a few other well-known documents of similar nature, I often get email requests from enthusiastic network newbies asking (in effect) "how can I learn to be a wizardly hacker? ". Back in 1996 I noticed that there didn't seem to be any other FAQs or web documents that addressed this vital question, so I started this one. Computer Musings by Professor Donald E. Knuth.
