Hey. I'm new.

Posted 26 December 2017 - 10:51 AM

I've been working in html, css, php and jquery for 3-4 years now. I decided I wanted to do more and started in computer science at one of the local community colleges. Just wrapped up my first semester with my only real class being programming fundamentals which was in c#. Had a lot of fun with that.

Learning a little python in my spare time.

That's about it. Not terribly exciting.

Introductions are wierd.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 1

Lol, Eric actually. Usually people end up just calling me cap or crew online.

Next semester I'm looking at..

C++/UNIX:
Students are introduced to commonly used algorithms. Students employ object-oriented design and object- oriented principles in problem solving using the C++ programming language. Students are introduced to the UNIX operating system and shell scripting.

and

Operating Systems:
This course will introduce students to Operating System theory and application. Operating System's concepts and components will be explored in both the UNIX (Linux) and Windows environments.Topics include: process management, communication and synchronization, memory management, device management, file systems, system administration and security.

I would have liked to have taken more computer / programming focused classes both last and this semester but I am still working full time and doing my best to not interfere with my current job.. which is where I self taught myself html, css, jquery and some plain ol' javascript, some php, how to use bash, messed around with apache a bit and that sort of thing.

Nifty! Don't forget you can burn a copy of Ubuntu or Mint to a DVD or usb stick and do a 'live session' where you can reboot and it runs in memory without installing.. or install virtualbox on your machine and have a VM of it.

Yeah I've got a bootable ubuntu flash drive as well as an ubuntu install on an older laptop of mine that I use as a local webserver. I don't use it much, that was just kind of a "because I can" project.

The ubuntu install was due to its age though. I stuck a SSD in there with ununtu on it which sped that old thing up significantly.

SSDs will do that. Always a the easier upgrades to make things peppy and perky.

Yeah, they are, kinda. But welcome to DIC anyway!

Looks like fun. If you get a chance to take compilers later on, jump on it. That'll mess with your head nicely.

Good to have the mix of everyday practical there to keep you honest while you're digging down into the deep stuff.
