Young programmers rubbish

Hey hey, its been a while.

Hell, its been a while since I logged at my blog as admin. I almost forgot that it even exists 🙂 This is my effort to bring it back from the forgotten.

There isn’t any particular thing I’d like to talk about. There are couple of thing I’ve been doing lately, which might be interesting… to finish 😀

First, its socket programming in C. More precisely, I’m making some coding examples, while learning about sockets in C, and while learning I’m trying to implement very very simple application protocol. It might be a good starting point for newbies. Real usefulness of this protocol would exist, if there was need for it. And there isn’t. Doing it for fun, learning and enthusiasm.

Second, since I’m at last year of my studies, I have a finishing project. At finishing year as a bachelor, students have some practical, every day, problem to solve. As a student of master studies, students have more scientific approach, so problem is little bit more science oriented. For example, my work is based on fortran90 MPI parallelization. While I’m at this one, I’d like to point to one funny site. Its about hacker names for your business card. So, related to that, I’d be something between multicore general and parallelista B-) Nice! Now, back to the science. For now, its all about computing positions of gas particles in cylindrical chamber, and one processor is doing calculation for one particle at the time. Nothing very special. Next is doing statistical based model parallelization, which should be more interesting.

Aaaand, in the mean time, while trying to take some time to rest, I’m reading books. Sci-fi ones 🙂 Last book that I’ve finished is Revelation Space, by Alastair Reynolds. Really nice one. The book I started to read recently is Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline. This one is really cool, and I’m not even at one third of the book 🙂 Guys who like games, would like this one.

So, thats it. Have a good time gaming, reading, programming, listening… Bye!
