Beginning Game Development: Part I – Introduction Part I – Introduction Welcome to the first article of an introductory series on game programming using the Microsoft .NET Framework and managed DirectX 9.0. This series as aimed at beginning programmers who are interested in developing a game for their own use with the .NET Framework and DirectX. The goal of this series is to have fun creating a game and learn game development and DirectX along the way. Game programming and DirectX have their own terms and definitions that can be difficult to understand, but after awhile, you’ll crack the code and be able to explore a new world of possibilities.
Introduction to Android Development Mobiletuts+ will be covering all major mobile platforms - iPhone, Windows, Android and Blackberry.

Coding for SSDs – Part 1: Introduction and Table of Contents Introduction I want to make solid-state drives (SSDs) the optimal storage solution for my key-value store project. For that reason, I had to make sure I fully understood how SSDs work, so that I can optimize my hash table implementation to suit their internal characteristics. There is a lot of incomplete and contradictory information out there, and finding trustworthy information about SSDs was not an easy task.
How I’m (slowly) moving off the cloud with Nextcloud I bought a Raspberry Pi from Amazon with the goal of moving off of Google Photos to a self-hosted photo backup solution that’s nearly as seamless. My goals for this project: A Nextcloud instance on my internal network which could backup photos from my phoneA VPN to access the server from outside my network with Dynamic DNSAn internal DNS server to allow me to have an internal subdomainSSL/TLS certificate from LetsEncrypt for the internal domain Free Books A lot of people keep asking about a good list of programming books. Hence, we are building this list to save your time and to spread the knowledge. Some of these books will definitely help us to evolve our coding skills and thought processes for developing better solutions.
Online Learning: A Bachelor's Level Computer Science Program Curriculum (Updated) Introduction [Update: See also the follow-up post to this piece, An Intensive Bachelor's Level Computer Science Curriculum Program.] A few months back we took an in-depth look at MIT’s free online Introduction to Computer Science course, and laid out a self-study time table to complete the class within four months, along with a companion post providing learning benchmarks to chart your progress. In the present article, I'll step back and take a much more broad look at com-sci course offerings available for free on the internet, in order to answer a deceptively straightforward question: is it possible to complete the equivalent of a college bachelor’s degree in computer science through college and university courses that are freely available online?

Map / Reduce – A visual explanation Map/Reduce is a term commonly thrown about these days, in essence, it is just a way to take a big task and divide it into discrete tasks that can be done in parallel. A common use case for Map/Reduce is in document database, which is why I found myself thinking deeply about this. Let us say that we have a set of documents with the following form: And we want to answer a question over more than a single document.
