Algorithms on Khan Academy link

We’ve partnered with Dartmouth college professors Tom Cormen and Devin Balkcom to teach introductory computer science algorithms, including searching, sorting, recursion, and graph theory. Learn with a combination of articles, visualizations, quizzes, and coding challenges.

Kini tiada lagi alasan untuk para pelajar Sains Komputer di kolej dan universiti mengatakan bahawa sukar untuk belajar tentang algorithm; kerana sudah ada kursus online di Khan Academy.

P/s: Saya pernah mengambil kursus Diploma Sains Komputer di UiTM pada tahun 2002. Pada pertengahan tahun 2004, saya mengambil keputusan untuk berhenti dan kemudiannya saya menyambung pelajaran ke maktab perguruan.

How I Start link

How I Start is a mix between a collection of development tutorials and The Setup. The purpose is to both fill a gap in tutorials and give a peek at how some of the top developers do their work.

Often tutorials and books are overly generic, leaving it up to the reader to wade through all the tools and styles available to a language on their own. These articles are meant for a user who is comfortable with a language in its REPL (if available) or building individual modules, but may not be comfortable taking the step to producing an application or library that is ready to be consumed by others or deployed to production.

Buat masa sekarang, cuma ada artikel untuk Erlang, Elixir, Ruby, Go, dan Haskell.

How Browsers Work link

Web browsers are probably the most widely used software. In this book I will explain how they work behind the scenes. We will see what happens when you type ‘google.com’ in the address bar until you see the Google page on the browser screen. — Tali Garsiel

MailChimp's Email Design Guide link

The Email Design Guide is filled with tips and advice to help you convey your message in style. Learn how to better use images, fonts, calls to action and more.

90% emel berbentuk promosi yang saya terima menggunakan gambar semata-mata, dan tidak dapat dipaparkan dengan baik di dalam smartphone. Sekiranya rekabentuk emel diambil dengan lebih serius, mungkin peratus orang yang membaca akan naik, dan seterusnya akan meningkatkan jualan dan kadar clickthrough.

Styleguide Resources link

A style guide or style manual is a set of standards for the writing and design of documents, either for general use or for a specific publication, organization or field. The implementation of a style guide provides uniformity in style and formatting within a document and across multiple documents. A set of standards for a specific organization is often known as “house style”. Style guides are common for general and specialized use, for the general reading and writing audience, and for students and scholars of various academic disciplines, medicine, journalism, the law, government, business, and industry. — Wikipedia

Bahan rujukan yang diperlukan untuk anda mempelajari tentang styleguide, dikumpulkan oleh Anna Debenham.

How a Password Changed My Life link

I’m gonna use a password to change my life. — Mauricio Estrella

Satu kisah yang sangat epic tentang bagaimana Maricio mengubah hidupnya hanya dengan kata laluan. Saya harap sangat anda dapat baca kisah ni.

Versi tl;dr : Mauricio menjadikan kata laluannya sebagai satu peringatan/motivasi dalam tempoh 30 hari. Jadi, setiap kali dia memasukkan kata laluan, saat itulah dia akan ingat apa yang ingin dicapainya pada bulan itu.

Beginners

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through. — Ira Glass

Saya terpanggil untuk berkongsi petikan kata-kata Ira Glass di atas. Tiada jalan mudah untuk kita hasilkan kerja kreatif yang benar-benar bagus. Semuanya mengambil masa, dan bila saya sebut masa, cepat atau lambat bergantung kepada usaha kita. Saya tak nak sentuh tentang bakat kerana orang yang berbakat pun belum tentu menjadi sekiranya malas.

Akhirnya, semuanya kembali kepada sikap. Sikaplah yang akan menentukan hala tuju kita. Ingat, keputusan untuk meneruskan sesuatu, atau berhenti, terletak di tangan kita dan bukannya pada orang lain. Sekiranya anda masih baru: jangan mudah mengalah, teruskan belajar, hasilkan sesuatu, dan ulanglah proses ini sampai bila-bila.

Sekadar pesanan untuk diri saya sendiri yang sering terlupa.

Keep calm and carry on.

Self-repairing Software link

University of Utah computer scientists have developed software that not only detects and eradicates never-before-seen viruses and other malware, but also automatically repairs damage caused by them. The software then prevents the invader from ever infecting the computer again.

NEW Hackaday link

Laman web Hackaday telah diberikan nafas baru dari segi ubahsuai rekabentuk laman web. Antara laman web yang telah lama bertapak di internet yang berkisar tentang dunia hacking. Tapi hacking dalam konteks ni bukan hacking yang kebanyakan orang sangkakan. 100% tidak sama langsung.

We are taking back the term “Hacking” which has been soured in the public mind. Hacking is an art form that uses something in a way in which it was not originally intended. This highly creative activity can be highly technical, simply clever, or both. Hackers bask in the glory of building it instead of buying it, repairing it rather than trashing it, and raiding their junk bins for new projects every time they can steal a few moments away.
