I hope the LISP thread gets made soon! I'd do it myself, but I don't know the language family nearly well enough to be authoritative about it.
You don't have to make a "general," if you want to talk about something just make a thread about it.
Will do, then.
Yeah, I've sadly noticed both lainchans have too many generals, since threads, sadly, never die. It becomes more like an archive than an imageboard. Polite sage for offtopic post.
I think they wanted to use libc for memory reasons and missing features in the language is just a side effect of that.
I don't really understand why Arduino uses C++ at all. It really just uses C features, except for sometimes organizing things as objects (Serial.print). It's very useless though, it could just as easily be serial_print. Perhaps it's because they want to abstract away string manipulation with std::string, so that newbies can print some text through serial or an LED without worrying about null bytes or memory leaks. I guess it really reveals the priorities of the platform though.
It's an ARM processor - you can code for it in any language you want so long as you're able to compile it down to the right assembly. You're right that the default, introductory dev environment was catered towards newcomers, but don't let that limit you.
Learning Python, want to be able to build/program my own systems from the circuits and mechanics to machine learning algs eg. robotics. It would seem physics and programming is where I should be focused.
can anyone recommend a good self teaching stack? Looking to get right into applying/building.
I'm 30 and feel like ive wasted so much time, sole provider so i cant just go back to school.
There has to be good crash course suggestions, communities for learning, anything?
arduino's "C++" can barely be called what it is.
Sakura is the only sane option for me.
Used urxvt but getting things to work was a pain in the ass (for me)
BTW OP what's the suggested information for starting one of these threads?
Would a list of resources suffice to get things moving?
Look at the catalog and see the other threads for comparison.
functional programming thread is up
I'm surprised we still don't have Julia or Scheme/SICP threads yet.
I'm still surprised that there is no C, C++ or Java but yet we have a Python one.
learn reverse engineering? it'll allow you to understand programs without their source code which is useful to hack them, write plugins for them etc… https://www.amazon.com/Reversing-Secrets-Engineering-Eldad-Eilam/dp/0764574817
you'll need to learn assembly first and learn how to use IDA PRO then you could try to write your own programs…
And if you want to apply your physics/reverse engineering knowledge you could try to hack video games I'd recommend source engine games or quake games since they are open source and easier to start with though the physics/math part isn't super advanced compared to research lvl,mostly linear algebra(linear applications)/geometry/trigonometry
>>536> Looking to get right into applying/building.
Get an Arduino, or install Qemu and learn machine language for whatever architecture pulls you. Go to osdev.org, it has great tutorials. Read the book called "CODE: The hidden language of computer hardware and software", it's a great intro. Learn about digital logic design, get Verilog and play with it.
>>883>C thread's up
Yeah, Racket is truly a LISP with batteries included. I feel more comfortable in Racket than Clojure, but the community is relatively small. Either way I'd like to do more side projects in Racket.
Yes, just make one.
Feel free to make a thread with beginner programming questions as it is requested thread on board.
tfw still no thread ;~;
Why not make one? I know nothing about Julia but I wouldn't mind checking it out.
Hey. I learn C but i want write some little project for improve my skill. Can u give advise what i can write?
P.S Pls jesus dont tell write own OS
We should post bounties for threads and send arisuchan stickers to the author.
It would be nice to have links to the existing threads.
>>1210>It would be nice to have links to the existing threads.
That's a good idea. I went ahead and updated the OP to include links to topics that already have threads. Thanks.
Request shell scripting (bash/dash/zsh/sh/coreutils/…)
There are actually people here that like F#, too? Jesus what kind of magical place is this?
i think cuz the site looks almost unreadable without much styling
Please add to OP:
Quantum Computer Programming: >>1161
don't know if that'd be soft enough for you, but practicing it is usually the way to go. The details would vary here, but trudging through sicp exercises would be one way of doing it.
And then mix in some routine to practice posting in the relevant threads too.
