Programming, Motherfucker - Do you speak it? Haskell for the Evil Genius. We were negotiating with the Pentagon, we had a blue screen of death.

Haskell for the Evil Genius

That was the last straw. When you're holding the moon for ransom, you value stability in an application.Steve Steve was speaking of operating systems, but his words apply to any clockwork. When lives are on the line, lives you want to destroy, will your laser deathray malfunction? This guide provides tools and techniques for making digital superweapons more robust, more efficient, more deadly.


Ruby/rails. TIOBE Software: Tiobe Index. TIOBE Index for September 2015 September Headline: New TIOBE index algorithm eliminates spikes As of this month, the TIOBE index uses an improved algorithm to calculate the popularity of programming languages.

TIOBE Software: Tiobe Index

This new algorithm has mainly to do with the way outliers (statistical noise) is removed from the results. The previous algorithm focused on the number of outliers per search engine. If there were too many outliers for a search engine, that search engine would not qualify because of its "untrusty" results. Wiki: Lua Tutorial. Introduction About the tutorial This tutorial is aimed at all newcomers to the language Lua.

wiki: Lua Tutorial

We start off with where to find relevant introductory material and then progress to using the language with tutorials in the TutorialDirectory. The style is directed at newcomers to scripting languages, as well as newcomers to Lua. Common uses of Lua are: Eclipse AspectJ: Aspect-Oriented Programming with AspectJ and the Eclipse AspectJ Development Tools. Now every Java developer can leverage the immense power of AOP With AspectJ, Java developers can leverage the breakthrough power of Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) using a language they already know, within the comfortable, highly productive Eclipse development environment.

Eclipse AspectJ: Aspect-Oriented Programming with AspectJ and the Eclipse AspectJ Development Tools

In this book, AspectJ's lead developers help you master AOP's essential principles and techniques, as you use them to address your toughest software quality, productivity, and maintenance challenges. AOP improves the modularity of programs, making the code much closer to the design. It can dramatically reduce the time taken to implement common features and functions, improve quality, integrate plain-old Java objects with systems and services, create simpler, more reusable components, and much more besides. Drawing on their experience as tool developers, programmers, and mentors, the authors cover every facet of AOP development with AspectJ and Eclipse, from creating new projects through extending and.

Squirrel - The Programming Language. Books And Courses To Learn To Code. Programming Languages Have Social Mores Not Idioms Posted by: Zed on AUG-19-2012 I'm currently editing my Learn Ruby The Hard Way book and cleaning some things up here and there.

Books And Courses To Learn To Code

In the process I've stumbled on what Rubyists call an "idiom", the use of .each to do loops instead of a for-loop. To them this is one of the most important signs that you are a real Ruby programmer. They look at this usage of one looping construct over another as some sign that you are incompetent, and haven't been properly indoctrinated into the Ruby community's ways. Read This Article. Programming language development: the past 5 years. Programming language development: the past 5 years I recently compiled a list of Perlis Languages that were meant to illustrate varying paradigms not typically found in mainstream programming languages.

Programming language development: the past 5 years

Those languages were meant to stretch your mind and are not necessarily representative of the state of the art in language design and implementation. In this post I will provide a list of fairly new languages (let’s say 5 years with a little flex) that display1 interesting features and display higher-order thinking in the way that they tend toward an evolution of past learnings in programming language thinking. Not all of these languages enjoy active development, but the more important point is that they represent in some way “new language thinking”. Remember that this goal does not necessarily mean “innovative”. Perlis Languages. Perlis Languages this is another entry in a series on programmer enrichment A language that doesn’t affect the way you think about programming is not worth knowing. — Alan Perlis inspired by a LtU thread and the great post Programming Achievements: How to Level Up as a Developer by Jason Rudolph1. most code samples from Rosetta Code.

Create Your Own Programming Language. “The book I want to read.” — Matz, creator of the Ruby language “I really love this book.” — Jeremy Ashkenas, creator of the CoffeeScript language Want to create a programming language, but don't feel like going through one of those expensive and boring 1000-page book ?

We all know HTML5 is revolutionizing the web development industry and it is still under development.And i’m sure you’ve heard the fight between Flash and HTML5.Well of course we don’t know exactly what will happen in the future but even though HTML5 has been well known among web developers for years, it became the topic of mainstream media in April 2010 after Apple Inc’s then-CEO Steve Jobs issued a public letter titled “Thoughts on Flash” where he concludes that Adobe “Flash is no longer necessary to watch video or consume any kind of web content” and that “new open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win”.

Scala: A Better Java for Android — giant robots smashing into other giant robots

There are a slew of ways to build Android apps. The original Java way reigns supreme but some alternatives are C++, Mirah, Python, Titanium Appcelerator, Corona, and so on. And there's Scala. Scala can be thought of as a better Java. To start with, you don't need as many semicolons. Scala: The Static Language that Feels Dynamic. Computing ThoughtsScala: The Static Language that Feels Dynamicby Bruce EckelJune 12, 2011 Summary The highest complement you can deliver in the Python world is to say that something is "Pythonic" -- that it feels and fits into the Python way of thinking.

I never imagined that a static language could feel this way, but Scala does -- and possibly even better. I'm actually glad I waited this long before beginning to learn the language, because they've sorted out a lot of issues in the meantime. In fact, several versions of the language have made breaking changes with previous versions, requiring code rewrites.
