Greetings! New Forum User

Posted 06 January 2016 - 11:10 AM

Hey members! This is Binary Husky.

Greetings from Guatemala. I am aspiring to be a mobile app developer and eventually get involve in gaming coding. I am excited to be part of this forums since I am studying code in an auto didactic way.
My goals for this year are to learn different programming languages, its fundamentals, and abstract concepts. So that I can apply them to something useful in different fields such as networking, app developing, and eventually gaming.
My Future plans are to become a software engineer.

These are the programming languages that throughout the year i'll be learning
C C++
Java Objective-C

Any book references will be appreciated. In this moment I am focusing in the following books

Standard C library by P.J. Plauger
Algorithms in C by Robert Sedgewick

So I hope my questions will be beneficial for me and for the community in some form. See you later on the forums. Cheers!

Bienvenidos a DIC! Both of those are good books to work through. There are a lot of good books on programming, and there are pinned threads with lots of suggestions, so when you finish with those two, you won't starve for future reading.

I'm also a self-learner. I'm studying object oriented programming on my own.

Do you want to be an employee, a freelancer, or a business owner?

I know C from the 80's when I was in college. I'm studying C++ now. I plan to study Java, although I may drop Java from my plans. I'm not interested in Objective-C. I'm also interested in Haskell, Python, Ocaml, Ada, Coq, VDM++, and a few others.

See you later on the forums. Cheers!

I'm sure you'll like them. :)

Hi Betsemes, thanks! nice to mmet you. I hope that eventually we give support on C++ to each other and other members. I started self learning about 2 months ago and its been nice. My plans are too start a business along with my brother and a friend (they are web developers).

I have heard of Haskell, I currently have no plans on learning Haskell, but it interest me because I read that is powerful on mathematics. I do have plans of learning Python as soon as I finish the Cs and java mentioned before.

I hope to start a business sometime in the future, I still don't know when. I do have a few projects I plan to build, and commercialize.

As I read around, Haskell is a complete paradigm shift, from imperative to functional, which makes it a must to learn. There are other functional languages (well, more like multi-paradigm), but Haskell is pure functional. It takes time and effort to wrap the mind around it, but it's worth it.
