10 Technical Papers Every Programmer Should Read (At Least Twice) 10 Technical Papers Every Programmer Should Read (At Least Twice) this is the second entry in a series on programmer enrichment Inspired by a fabulous post by Michael Feathers along a similar vein, I’ve composed this post as a sequel to the original. That is, while I agree almost wholly with Mr. Feather’s1 choices, I tend to think that his choices are design-oriented2 and/or philosophical. In no way, do I disparage that approach, instead I think that there is room for another list that is more technical in nature, but the question remains, where to go next? All papers are freely available online (i.e. not pay-walled)They are technical (at times highly so)They cover a wide-range of topicsThe form the basis of knowledge that every great programmer should know, and may already Because of these constraints I will have missed some great papers, but for the most part I think this list is solid.

Crack/Keygen Sites That Are Safe To Use Blindly searching the web for cracks & keygens is about as smart as using Limewire to search for antivirus software - something not well-advised. Undoubtedly and unfortunately, the number of crack sites with overtones of a malicious agenda heavily outweigh sites that just want to serve up the honest goods. Having said that, there actually are quite a few creditable ‘crack’ sites that won’t try to bombard you with full-screen popup ads, or commandeer your computer into a spam-loving Kraken or Srizbi Botnet army. Be aware that the site reviews herein only include information about each site, not the contents of the ‘cracks’ themselves. Our Recommendation: Due to security flaws and exploits, avoid using Internet Explorer when browsing potentially harmful websites (such as any of these on the list) - use Firefox instead. Recommended (Clean) Crack Sites While these websites are deemed adware/malware free, always be sceptical of their “affiliate links” to other crack sites. www.serialkey.net
The Tao Of Programming Translated by Geoffrey James Transcribed by Duke Hillard Transmitted by Anupam Trivedi, Sajitha Tampi, and Meghshyam Jagannath Re-html-ized and edited by Kragen Sittler Last modified 1996-04-10 or earlier Table of Contents Book 1 - The Silent Void Thus spake the master programmer: ``When you have learned to snatch the error code from the trap frame, it will be time for you to leave.'' Something mysterious is formed, born in the silent void. If the Tao is great, then the operating system is great. The Tao of Programming flows far away and returns on the wind of morning. The Tao gave birth to machine language. The assembler gave birth to the compiler. Each language has its purpose, however humble. But do not program in COBOL if you can avoid it. In the beginning was the Tao. Programmers that do not comprehend the Tao are always running out of time and space for their programs. How could it be otherwise? The wise programmer is told about Tao and follows it. The highest sounds are hardest to hear.
vi tips and tricks: Ten cool commands sure to impress your friends When coming to grips with the vi editor—either for the first time or as a regular user—most people tend to have a grasp of the core command set that allows them to perform those functions they use most regularly: navigating or saving a file; inserting, updating, deleting, or searching for data; or quitting without saving changes. However, the vi editor is extremely powerful and rich in features and functionality. Even after many years of use, you can still uncover new commands that you didn't realize existed. Before we start just a recap on the two modes of vi: command and insert. Turn line numbering on and off The vi editor has a number of options that determine the look and feel of an editing session. One of the options you can set is number, which turns line numbering on and off (see Listing 1). Listing 1. This command instructs vi to display a line number against each record in the file you are currently editing. Listing 2. Back to top Auto-indentation Listing 3. #! Listing 4. #! #! 1 #!

Google's Android Reborn as Network-Hacking Kit The Pwn Pad Photo: Pwnie Express The folks at security tools company Pwnie Express have built a tablet that can bash the heck out of corporate networks. Called the Pwn Pad, it’s a full-fledged hacking toolkit built atop Google’s Android operating system. Pwnie Express will be selling the cool-looking hack machines — based on Google’s Nexus 7 tablets — for $795. Some important hacking tools have already been ported to Android, but Pwnie Express says that they’ve added some new ones. “Every pen tester we know has a phone and a tablet and a laptop, but none of them has been able to do pen-testing from the tablet,” says Dave Porcello, Pwnie Express’s CEO. The trick here is that Android’s streamlined version of the Linux operating system does not support the kernel-level wireless features that these tools need to mess around with the data on wireless networks (something known as packet injection). A year ago, we introduced you to the Pwn Plug, another Pwnie Express product. Apple said “no.”
Category:Programming Tasks Programming tasks are problems that may be solved through programming. When such a task is defined, Rosetta Code users are encouraged to solve them using as many different languages as they know. The end goal is to demonstrate how the same task is accomplished in different languages. These are the Programming Tasks that have been defined and solved. Feel free to add solutions in languages not already included. The Category:Simple is a small subset with only "really simple" tasks, like "Hello World", and demonstrations of basic language-features. The Category:Draft Programming Tasks is a list of tasks, some of which are just awaiting more implementations before they can be promoted to tasks. Read the guidelines on creating new tasks. The following 871 pages are in this category, out of 871 total.
BitLet - the BitTorrent Applet Game From Scratch C++ and SFML 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. This series is meant to be a living document, so if you have any questions on specific section, let me know and I will update accordingly! Finally, I don’t pretend to be an expert on C++ nor SFML, so if you see a mistake or you disagree with something I have said, let me know. Alright, lets get this started. EDIT: This tutorial was written a couple years ago and targets Visual Studio 2010. The Introduction In this section we have an overview of what this project is going to involve as well as a list of programs and libraries you are going to need to follow along. Part 1 Part 2 Code, we finally start to code. Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7
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. thenewboston: thenewboston is a great youtube channel, has more than 2o playlists covering topics Python, C, Java, iPhone development and web programming like HTML, CSS, PHP. Xoax.net Xoax has more than 200 videos but mainly focuses on C++. PHPacademy As the name suggests, it focuses mainly on PHP and some on MySql. There are more videos on small projects like writing your own search engine for your database, pagination, creating a rating system etc… Related posts: Get more stuff like this
Minecraft Script Pictures Wherein you can see nifty pictures, and read some text too. It's minecraft! Yay! The Code Go to this page if you're interested in the code, so you too can modify your Minecraft save files. Intro So, I realized that there is no combined page for the scripts I've been writing for Minecraft. The Story Beginnings Like many of you, I learned about Minecraft through a link from a blog (I think it was Three Panel Soul). The first script I wrote was a simple interface to edit .mclevel files. Next, I started on a script to convert Dwarf Fortress levels to Minecraft levels. Castles Castles! Over the course of a few weeks, I gradually upgraded the code to allow multiple levels, an offset keep, doors, gatehouses, and towers along the walls. Merging Maps During this whole process, I was becoming familiar with the Minecraft forums and the mapping community. Trees While developing the code for making castles, another thought had been growing in my mind. This is by far my most popular script. City Groundwork
