I’ve been kind of scattershot in my learning lately. I’ve been unsure as to what direction I should go. I’ve dabbled in Angular and Meteor. I tried a C++ course through Coursera and downloaded Visual Studio but I was turned off by the massive download and new environment.
I went to Meteor Spacecamp this weekend. I’ve been working on new features for the app I built for work. I’ve been thinking through a new app for work and made a couple of tries at that. I’ve also been trying to deploy an existing app as a volunteer project. That one’s hard.
As far as learning goes, I’ve decided to settle on learning C for now. I know it’s a language that will be replaced by Rust or some other language and there’s no real reason to write code in it, but it seems like a good opportunity to get a deeper understanding of how code works in general. Ruby is written in C. So is PHP.
So I’ve started Zed Shaw’s Learn C the Hard Way, and I’m really liking it! I’m up to chapter 15 on pointers. I plan on completing this before I move on to something else.
