Introduction to Problem Solving Skills Now that you have a couple problem solving strategies in your toolbox, let's practice. In this exercise, you are given a scenario and you will be asked to decide what steps you would take to identify and solve the problem.Scenario: You are a new employee and have just finished your training. As your first project, you have been assigned the milling of several additional components for a regular customer. C++ Programming/Exercises/Iterations Iterations[edit] Solutions requirements Solutions must: Use only standard C++.Be compilable.Be in accordance to general coding practices. Lesson 1238 - Harassment I wrote this comic months ago, after seeing certain statements come up in harassment and rape reports over and over again. Yes, it certainly simplifies the issue, and no, it doesn't cover all types of harassment. But it's important to remember something - seeking attention is not the same as seeking harassment. If someone has been harassed or raped, then by definition, they were not asking for it.

The Basics of C Programming" The previous discussion becomes a little clearer if you understand how memory addresses work in a computer's hardware. 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). Download This download is ideal for situations where a custom build will not be required.

Python Programming Language Python is a high-level, general-purpose and a very popular programming language. Python programming language (latest Python 3) is being used in web development, Machine Learning applications, along with all cutting edge technology in Software Industry. Python Programming Language is very well suited for Beginners, also for experienced programmers with other programming languages like C++ and Java. This specially designed Python tutorial will help you learn Python Programming Language in most efficient way, with the topics from basics to advanced (like Web-scraping, Django, Deep-Learning, etc.) with examples.

Extreme Programming Rules Planning User stories are written. Release planning creates the release schedule. Make frequent small releases. The project is divided into iterations. YouTube Playlists for Learning Programming YouTube has been very good platform for learning any thing. Earlier you have seen 400+ courses on YouTube and 130+ NPTEL courses. There are few more courses especially about computer programming. These are contributed by various individuals.

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. 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. In fairness, I have to admit that the writers of compilers have improved on the situation in recent years, by detecting and warning about potentially bad code in many cases. Non-terminated comment, "accidentally" terminated by some subsequent comment, with the code in between swallowed.

5 Free Books for Learning Python for Data Science by Kenneth Reitz & Tanya Schlusser This is an excellent book for all Python developers, both for beginners and more experienced users. It isn’t specific to Data Science. However, it will give you a fantastic grounding in the language and in particular includes recommended best practices and frameworks. It includes everything from installation, development environments, recommended code structure, object-oriented programming and some really excellent chapters on code style. One of the stand-out parts of this book are its descriptions of best practices for structuring directories containing your Python code.
