Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python - Chapters Chapter 1 Read online: Chapter 1 - Installing Python Videos: Chapter 2 Read online: Chapter 2 - The Interactive Shell Chapter 3 Laird Breyer's java applets Metropolis-Hastings algorithms are a class of Markov chains which are commonly used to perform large scale calculations and simulations in Physics and Statistics. The button below opens a separate window from your browser containing a demonstation of some of the most common chains which are used for this purpose. The window is resizable, and you may need to adjust its dimensions depending on your system configuration. Two common problems which are approached via M-H algorithms are simulation and numerical integration.
Mahmoud Essam presents: repl.it - Python Help What is repl.it? It is an online environment for interactively exploring programming languages. The name comes from the read-eval-print loop, the interactive toplevel used by languages like Lisp and Python. How do I start? 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.
Automatic Memory Management To optimize the performance of the garbage collector, the managed heap is divided into three generations: 0, 1, and 2. The runtime's garbage collection algorithm is based on several generalizations that the computer software industry has discovered to be true by experimenting with garbage collection schemes. First, it is faster to compact the memory for a portion of the managed heap than for the entire managed heap. Secondly, newer objects will have shorter lifetimes and older objects will have longer lifetimes. Forest fire Forest fire You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know. Implement the Drossel and Schwabl definition of the forest-fire model. It is basically a 2D cellular automaton where each cell can be in three distinct states (empty, tree and burning) and evolves according to the following rules (as given by Wikipedia) A burning cell turns into an empty cell A tree will burn if at least one neighbor is burning A tree ignites with probability f even if no neighbor is burning An empty space fills with a tree with probability p Neighborhood is the Moore neighborhood; boundary conditions are so that on the boundary the cells are always empty ("fixed" boundary condition).
Mahmoud Essam presents: Become a Programmer, Motherfucker If you don't know how to code, then you can learn even if you think you can't. Thousands of people have learned programming from these fine books: Learn Python The Hard Way A Quick, Painless Tutorial on the Python Language Norman Matloff University of California, Davis June 17, 2008 ©2003-2008, N. Matloff Contents UT on Rails Last year I held a series of non credit Rails courses for University of Texas Students, i’m happy to announce that i’ve been granted an Adjunct Professor position at the UT and I’m teaching a for credit course in Databases and Rails. Lucky for you, i’m a sucker for online learning, so i’ll be putting all my course material online, right here. The Course This Ruby on Rails course is 10 weeks long and assumes you know very little about programming and have not used Ruby, Rails, or Databases previously.
Think Labyrinth: Maze Algorithms Maze Classification Mazes in general (and hence algorithms to create Mazes) can be organized along seven different classifications. These are: Dimension, Hyperdimension, Topology, Tessellation, Routing, Texture, and Focus. A Maze can take one item from each of the classes in any combination. Dimension: The dimension class is basically how many dimensions in space the Maze covers. Mahmoud Essam presents: Beginning Game Development: Part VIII - DirectSound Welcome to the eighth article on beginning game development. We have spent a lot of time working with the graphics capabilities of DirectX. We also covered how the DirectX API allows us to control input devices.
Game From Scratch C++ Edition! Want to create a game using C++ and SFML? This is the perfect place to start! This tutorial series will follow the creation of a simple game in C++ from the very beginning till the end, a micro-version of the overall purpose of this site. C++ is an evolving language standard and a great many tutorials out there are horrifically outdated or just plain bad. Similarly, most tutorials in books or on sites are by their very nature required to be very short and concise.
