    Quick Hello

    Hi folks,

    New to the community--just a quick hello and about.me

    Learning C (self-study) and programming techniques. I'm a freelance writer, and the end goal here is to code professionally. Researching opinions and discussions reveals that a good path seems to be learning C, as it requires discipline and a deeper understanding of how things actually "work" in the computer as far as memory and data.

    My plan is to study software engineering concepts once I have a language I can play around with, then perhaps branch into C++ or one of the other object-oriented languages. I'm using several books, but I'll refrain from listing them unless someone really wants to know.

    I'm a person who likes to solve problems and understand things on my own, so (hopefully) you won't see many questions from me.

    This guy's self taught attempt is an example to be followed by others
    Code - functions and small libraries I use


    It’s 2014 and I still use printf() for debugging.
