Welcome to programming with Neko-Chan
Due to popular request I am making a series of threads that show the basics of programming and cover a few basic projects. I'll cover a wide variety of topics from theory to binary. The goal is that after reading a thread on a topic one will have enough knowledge to know start a project.
For each topic or project I will post a thread using the programming with neko tag. I will also link the lesson within the index (this thread). I'll list documentation, books, and other references at the end of each topic respective to the topic. Questions and comments should be posted within the respective thread topic, not the index (this thread). Please reserve the comment space here for questions regarding the whole series as well as requests for additional topics.
There is no scheduled release dates.
Oh yea that cat dude... Who is he again?
I go by many aliases online. My CL bio is short for a reason. Simply call me Neko if you see me around. I joined the CL a long time ago and have been an active member of the community off and on. I am currently a college student getting a bachelors in Computer Science. I speak and write Japanese at a conversational proficiency. In addition to my major I am minoring in Japan Studies and Mathematics. I am also blessed with a dark dry sarcastic humor. Sorry not sorry.
Threads are threads, not a blanket. It is likely I will not be able to fit all encompassing lessons into them. A lot of learning is going to require time on the internet reading other tutorials and documentation. I am only trying to get people started.
I am still a student. I am currently getting a bachelors degree in Computer Science and I am still learning many things. I have been programming for 10 years however. I may not follow all best practices.
Things change... fast. Computer Science is one of the most largest growing fields and is one of the most permeable fields. The projects and advice I give may change in a few years. When doing your own research, check when it was published. Information from 3 years ago may be useless.
I am not an English major. I'll try my best to write properly. If you are confused was to what I mean or would like to point out a grammatical mistake, PM me rather than reply on the lesson thread.
Wheaton's Law applies. I reserve my right to not associate myself with people who break it.
Programming sucks. I am not responsible for any insanity, sleepless nights, or changed interests due to reading these threads.
