Let me begin by saying that I am not, nor will ever be a professional programmer. I am quite happy with what I do and I have no false expectations of grandeur. *With that out of the way*
My new interest in programming has now been with actual implementation of abstract concepts, e.g how higher level language compilers work. My problem lately is it has been a struggle to find what exact 'key words' to search for on the internet. Most common nomenclature results in 1000s of pages of garbage with maybe 1 or 2 links worth of results.
*Side note: I have found the Crenshaw articles and I do own the "red dragon book"*
Additionally, even with the open source movement, most links are all filled with lackluster questions due to the constant influx of "I'm going to be the next Bill Gates" type of questions. (I'm sure you guys here know what I mean)
I would like to know how to effectively continue my search.
