source, a good
resource to learn C by dissecting well written programs. I read
cp program file. It is easy enough to be read and
understood by a newbie programmer.
Go's installer package -- goinstall recognizes git, hg and svn
repository locations (eg:
$ goinstall github.com/hoisie/web.go
installs the web package by automatically downloading it from github).
TimBray made an interesting note about programmer coding zones:
But first I’d like to step back almost 20 years, to an occasion in the early Nineties when I was on-site at Microsoft. I noticed a pattern in the men’s rooms, time after time, like this: I’d be washing my hands or whatever, and some guy would come in, walking really fast with a look of urgency, headed straight for the fixtures. This was a guy who’d been so zoned in coding that he’d ignored his growing need till he just absolutely couldn’t any more.
It is my observation that, if I jump into a task right away as soon as I get into my seat, my productivity sky rockets. The first few minutes are crucial in setting the tone till the next distraction/break.
