Java. UML. The Basics of C Programming". The previous discussion becomes a little clearer if you understand how memory addresses work in a computer's hardware.

The Basics of C Programming"

If you have not read it already, now would be a good time to read How Bits and Bytes Work to fully understand bits, bytes and words. All computers have memory, also known as RAM (random access memory). For example, your computer might have 16 or 32 or 64 megabytes of RAM installed right now. RAM holds the programs that your computer is currently running along with the data they are currently manipulating (their variables and data structures). Memory can be thought of simply as an array of bytes.

Float f; This statement says, "Declare a location named f that can hold one floating point value. " While you think of the variable f, the computer thinks of a specific address in memory (for example, 248,440). F = 3.14;


3 Hacks for Firefox That Will Double Your Internet Browsing Speed - There are many people out there complaining about the Firefox RAM Memory Bug. Lets get it straight. It’s not a bug. It’s part of the cache feature. This ‘feature’ is how the pages are cached in a tabbed environment. To improve performance when navigating (studies show that 39% of all page navigations are renavigations to pages visited less than 10 pages ago, usually using the back button), Firefox implements a Back-Forward cache that retains the rendered document for the last five session history entries for each tab. 10 sites developers should have in their bookmarks.

Programmer Competency Matrix. About Koders. Optimizing C and C++ Code. Embedded software often runs on processors with limited computation power, thus optimizing the code becomes a necessity.

Optimizing C and C++ Code

In this article we will explore the following optimization techniques for C and C++ code developed for Real-time and Embedded Systems. 10 free Linux e-books. Posted in Tech blog on February 24th, 2012 by Pingdom Who doesn’t like free stuff?

10 free Linux e-books

We put together a selection of free Linux e-books that you can read, in many cases download, and use as references, or simply to learn something. The topics range from advanced programming to Java, from GNU to Emacs, from device drivers to the kernel, and much, much more. You don’t have to pay anything to take part of the wealth of knowledge and information available in these e-books. Advanced Linux programming. A Quick, Painless Tutorial on the Python Language.

The C Library Reference Guide. How to Unlock a Computer Without a Password Reset Disk. Android. Developers. Top 10 Ways to be Screwed by "C". To get on this list, a bug has to be able to cause at least half a day of futile head scratching, and has to be aggravated by the poor design of the "C" language.

Top 10 Ways to be Screwed by "C"

In the interests of equal time, and to see how the world has progressed in the 20-odd years since "C" escaped from its spawning ground, see my Top 10 Ways to be Screwed by the Java programming language, and for more general ways to waste a lot of time due to bad software, try my Adventures in Hell page. A better language would allow fallible programmers to be more productive. Infallible programmers, of the type unix' and "C" designers anticipated, need read no further. Archive of Interesting Code.

The Archive of Interesting Code is an (ambitious) effort on my part to research, intuit, and code up every interesting algorithm and data structure ever invented.

In doing so, I hope both to learn the mathematical techniques that power these technologies and to improve my skills as a programmer. In case you're curious what I'm someday hoping to having implemented on this page, you can check out my TODO list. If you're interested in using any of this code in your applications, feel free to do so!

You don't need to cite me or this website as a source, though I would appreciate it if you did. However, please don't plagiarize the code here by claiming authorship - that would just be dishonest. Enjoy! Introduction to Java Programming. Java is a simple and yet powerful object oriented programming language and it is in many respects similar to C++.

Introduction to Java Programming

Java originated at Sun Microsystems, Inc. in 1991. It was conceived by James Gosling, Patrick Naughton, Chris Warth, Ed Frank, and Mike Sheridan at Sun Microsystems, Inc. It was developed to provide a platform-independent programming language. This site gives you an Introduction to Java Programming accompanied with many java examples. How to limit calculations to one decimal place? I think this question was asked a while ago (though QATO doesn't seem to give the year with the date), but in case anyone comes across it: To round floats to arbitrarily decimal places without converting to strings (as in Eric5h5's solution), you can use (as a general solution): function round(x, decimalPlaces) { return Mathf.Round(x * Mathf.Pow(10, decimalPlaces));}

Amit’s Game Programming Information

I’m interested in producing complexity out of simple parts. This page contains bookmarks that I collected while working on games; I did not write most of the content linked from here. As a result the set of links here reflects the types of things I needed to know: only a few specific topics (not everything related to game programming), general ideas instead of platform-specific information (graphics, sound, compilers), and ideas and designs instead of source code (I find it easier to go from an idea to code than from code to an idea).

Other sites, like Gamedev Tuts+, Gamedev, and Gamasutra, cover lots more topics than mine does. Best Linux Software. On this page, you will find the best Linux applications that have been carefully tested and selected for all your needs. We've taken the effort to categorize these Linux applications and picked only those we believe to be the best, and which will most likely be useful to you. Of course, since we're talking Linux - these are also all free. This page updates frequently, so check back often! The original open source virus scanner. A version of AVG's Virus Scanner for Linux.

Codecademy Labs. Home Network Security. This section provides a basic introduction to the technologies that underlie the Internet. It was written with the novice end-user in mind and is not intended to be a comprehensive survey of all Internet-based technologies. Subsections provide a short overview of each topic. This section is a basic primer on the relevant technologies. For those who desire a deeper understanding of the concepts covered here, we include links to additional information. Mobile Computing with iPhone and Android. The dates for each paper presentation are listed below. For each paper, a student or group of students will be asked to present the paper.

The presentation should present a technical overview of the paper and argue the merits and flaws of the paper. Each paper presentation should be 25-30 minutes, plus time for questions. There will be 2 paper presentations per class. All students are required to read the papers before they are presented. Presentations will be graded based on apparent understanding of the material in the paper, presentation style, and entertainment value. In creating your presentations, you are free to use any additional material beyond the content of the paper. 10 Papers Every Programmer Should Read (At Least Twice) I spent most of yesterday afternoon working on a paper I’m co-writing. It was one of those days when the writing came easy. I was moving from topic to topic, but then I realized that I was reaching too far backward – I was explaining things which I shouldn’t have had to explain to the audience I was trying to reach.

When I first started writing, one of the pieces of advice that I heard was that you should always imagine that you are writing to a particular person. 30 free programming eBooks - Since this post got quite popular I decided to incorporate some of the excellent suggestions posted in the comments, so this list now has more than 50 books in it.
