programming (23)



Abs
Learn how to program shell scripts using bash, the command interpreter from the GNU project. Start from the basics and become and advanced programmer.

BASM
BASM is a user friendly and easy to use assembler for The Basic Computer, capable of creating the object, list and hex file and giving detailed error reports. It's more of academic use for students who wish to understand how does The Basic Computer actually work.

Blockly
Blockly is a web-based, graphical programming editor. Users can drag blocks together to build an application. No typing required.

C Programming
C is the most commonly used programming language for writing operating systems. Unix was the first operating system written in C. Later Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and GNU/Linux were all written in C. Not only is C the language of operating systems, it is the precursor and inspiration for almost all of the most popular high-level languages available today. In fact, Perl, PHP, and Python are all written in C.

Dive Into Python 3
Dive Into Python 3 is the successor to Mark Pilgrim's Dive Into Python, a popular book for learning programming with Python 2.x. It has been adapted to Python 3.x, and contains about 20% revised and 80% new material.

Dr. geo Heckert gnu.small.png
Dr. Geo, a libre software to design & manipulate interactive geometric sketches with constraints.

Dr. Geo aim is to be an open, easy to study, modify and extend interactive geometry software. It is distributed with its source code you can modify while using it. Ten years old kids use Dr. Geo to explore Euclidean geometric sketch, agile kids extend and program it with its embedded dynamic Smalltalk language and user interface.

Just like other interactive geometry software such as Cabri, Cinderella, Geogebra, Carmetal, with Dr. Geo the user creates a geometric sketch and manipulates it according to its constraints. What sets Dr.Geo apart from the other geometry software is the possibility of studying and even modifying/extending its source code while s/he is using it to create a figure.

All in all, its philosophy is also to empower the user with direct access to the Dr. Geo arcane and programming. For example, with script, one can build a geometric sketch to compute the slope at an arbitrary location of a given curve. Or the user can describe a recursive curve with Smalltalk programmed sketch.

It is distributed as an universal portable application: you can install it in a usb stick and run it anywhere, from a GNU/Linux, Windows or Mac OSX workstation: Dr. Geo is Modify-me Ready! But don't be afraid, if you only want to design interactive sketch, Dr. Geo is intuitive and easy to use.

It is also tablet ready for both Android and iPad.

Eloquent JavaScript
Eloquent JavaScript is a book providing an introduction to the JavaScript programming language and programming in general.

Firestr
Fire★ is a distributed, decentralized way to communicate and share through running programs.

You don't send a message to someone, you send an program, which can have rich content. All programs are wired up together automatically providing distributed communication, either through text, images, videos, or games.

The source code to all applications is available immediately to instantly clone and modify.

GNU MDK Heckert gnu.small.png
MDK stands for MIX Development Kit, and provides tools for developing and executing, in a MIX virtual machine, MIXAL programs. The MIX is Donald Knuth's mythical computer, described in the first volume of The Art of Computer Programming, which is programmed using MIXAL, the MIX assembly language. MDK includes a MIXAL assembler (mixasm) and a MIX virtual machine (mixvm) with a command line interface. In addition, a GTK+ GUI to mixvm, called gmixvm, and a Guile interpreter with an embedded MIX virtual machine called mixguile, are provided.

Guido von Robot
Guido van Robot (GvR) is a minimalistic programming language that provides just enough syntax to help students learn the concepts of sequencing, conditional branching, looping, and procedural abstraction. Its biggest strength is that it permits this learning in an environment that combines the thrill of problem-solving with instant visual feedback.
