I'm a big ol' geek. I'm learning a new coding language (mostly for work projects, but at least 33% for fun). I've been going through the exercises at Learn Python The Hard Way, and so far, it's like C and QBASIC had a baby raised by COBOL.
My goal is to add Python to my list of coding/scripting languages in which I am barely literate within a few months. The current list stands at (in rough order of learning):
- Windows Command Shell
- Windows PowerShell
- *sh (currently cygwin/bash, with a side of ksh - which is funny if you're familiar with ksh)
My favorite part of the classes so far? The exercise that has this as extra credit:
Find out what Zork and Adventure were. Try to find a copy and play it.And now, back to the books. I have code that I broke that needs un-breaking!
1 - I know, it's not technically a programming or scripting language, but it is a digital language that's come in handy on regular occasions, so I'm leaving it on the list. Programming purists, forgive me.
