Title: Free programming lessons
Post by: jackg on March 20, 2019, 03:25:34 AM
I'm wondering whether to try to do this here and give people lessons in programming languages.

I can do asm (the basics at least), python, java and c#. I can probably do a few more but I'm not sure of my competency. Anyway if anyone's interested let me know and I'll try to give it a go.

Day 1: getting and setting environment, downloading required software.
Day 2: variable assignments
Day 3: inputs and outputs
Day 4: if else and else if
Day 5: loops
Day 6: file handling
Day 7: case/switch statements
Day 8: recursion
Day 9: oop potentially

Tbh at some point if I do this I'll go fuck it and start posting multiple things at once or one every 12 hours or so.

I'm in for this! Giving free programming lesson is gold for me. Since I am a newbie in javascript and python developer, I want to give a shot to another programming languages or will enhance my knowledge on an existing programming language.

Wow this is great. Where are you going to post these lessons of yours? This thing is very timely and currently, I am studying computer science. This will be very good to me. For c++, I know the basics of it but java is the lesson I wanted to learn.


Title: Re: Free programming lessons
Post by: jackg on March 20, 2019, 04:11:37 AM
I'll potentially start it some point this week. I might wait until Saturday to do it and give it a full go. I'll post stuff here unless you guys want me to use something like google classroom however I'd rather post it so it can be public knowledge.

a cool move but when it comes to learning a new programming language specially the basics that you listed in your "day"s there are a lot of online courses that are easier to watch compared to reading comments on a forum. for example the Microsoft Academy[1] has courses such as C# for absolute beginners which are good.

i think it would be best if you offered something like the "programming buddy" and "... mentor" subs on reddit are doing. which is basically a mentor kind of thing, you can also do code reviews which is a lot more helpful in my opinion for people who want to learn as beginners.

Did you learn about programing about 'Blockchain' flow / system?

I'm going to attempt to start programming my own bitcoin core in c# at some point. I started it in January but put it on hybernate due to the amount of coursework I was given... I'll revisit that project around Easter and beyond and hope to get something working (I don't sleep very much now so I can get stuff done quickly ).


Someone needs to bump this thread on Saturday so I remember to start this. I'm going to add a poll as it might be helpful.

The buddy of code review part seems quite interesting but they don't seem to get much traction a lot of the time and if you dunk a toddler into deep water, chances are they're going to be scared of it for a long while after (I'm condemning the toddler thing, if youre considering it you need to get help).

Although I already have a background on C Language and Java Progeamming, I still want to master it but if you only offer one Language to study, then I will choose Python Programming.

Gonna watch this thread if this continues and for the upcoming schedule.

Based on the poll it looks like I'll start with python. I'll post it somewhere on the forum unless someone can link to somewhere better or a better style to do this.

(I should probably have included bash on the poll options just to see if anyone was interested)

Also they're markup languages and not programming languages that are Turing complete although I suppose I didn't state that....

Good to know, I suggest to make it on the B&H or Off Topic Section but it seems the Off Topic Board is commonly flooded with shitty scumbags so the best option would be Beginners & Help.

It is great to see someone who is not selfish and actually wants to offer his knowledge for free so others can benefit from it. You're an example and even if I am not currently interested in learning programming skills I want to express my gratitude. We need more people like you.  ;)

Maybe one suggestion while you are still at the beginning.
Your new thread needs to be self-moderated. Then you can moderate/delete some unnecessary comments. I suspect that it may be cumbersome and all sundry comments will only get tense to read and follow. Because of that, I post here this suggestion but it should not always be the case.

This is indeed a good idea and concept toward learning python programming language I am quite impressed by your generosity and willingness to offer this course free keep it up.
I hope you keep on with the lesson as I am a python language enthusiasts with a desire to learn this language
I will like to implore you if possible to incorporate some little projects in the course of the lessons to show how those lines of code and syntax are used in real life projects this will encourage learners to work on their own projects.

Thanks for the advice, I've added a rule. I will make it self moderated if it becomes an issue though. One or two posts I don't think would be much of an issue?

Thank you for creating that topic, I've learned a lot about Java/C/C++/C#. I wanted to start learning about Python but I was too lazy.
The program was downloaded, I hope that the posts will be re-formatted.

It's better to be about mistakes in a particular code "code reviews" where a lot of things in YouTube can be learned. "Or explain some small projects"

I'm wondering of people's opinions of me doing doctests (I'll do try and except/catch statements too but most people I come across seem to struggle with doctests and they're very helpful when you have large programs). I'll probably do a section of how to make things run faster - python is good for this because you can decide whether you run byte code or the interpreted part of the language...

That's right I no longer sleep

I'm not. I'm just offering another choice.
People seem to be finding the helpful or at least the first one so I may as well keep doing it. If not for the forum then it might help people find and learn about bitcoin by seeing we're a fairly normal community.

I have more of a research background than a professional one and such no... I anticipate my skills are mainly good for research however there will be overlaps with everything and typically speaking to go into programming professionally one need only program something as simple as the fizz buzz program.


Title: Re: Free programming lessons

Hello actually i am curious to learn technical things on block chain and general programming things but since I am finance background i am unable to achieve it. Last month i was trying to learn bb coding here on forum to some bucks and make myself involved in the forum. Some how i can codes and ann now. Can i have good youtube or any video tutorial to learn solidity and easy things can learn in smart contract development? Thanks, hope you will help me.  :)

This is at the bottom of my to do list. I mean it probably will be done as I want to build a smart contract client into my bitcoin wallet which is also pending completion.

It may be of interest for you to look into the technicals of the bitcoin lightning network, thereum and eos which are all smart contract based.

(the to do list is about a year long so I wouldn't wait for it).

Got it. Might as well give us some exercises so that those users who were reading your posts can give it a try. I guess the main advantage of your topics is that users can directly discuss if they are having a hard time and you are also up for answering them right?

Well this is pretty easy if jackg has no time for making videos then might as well one of the students can especially when they already have fully understood the discussion. It is a community work so might as well contribute

I'll probably do a section of how to make things run faster - python is good for this because you can decide whether you run byte code or the interpreted part of the language...

isn't python like THE slowest programming language ever. i am asking this because i have 0 experience in it but i remember reading a couple of posts on SO about it with some comparison with other languages. in fact here they are:
https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/26323/how-slow-is-python-really-or-how-fast-is-your-language
https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/26371/how-slow-is-python-really-part-ii

(the to do list is about a year long so I wouldn't wait for it).

o man the backlog. i have it too and the more i learn about bitcoin and programming the longer it gets. i have things in it that i know for a fact i will get there at least in 3 years.

Though I am not really on this industry but I am trying to learn new things and having knowledge to web/software development might get me a good background I guess. Been studying python but frequently as time is too limited as you mentioned on the day lesson thread just knowing python isn't a good package I guess it will be best for me to wait for other lessons for java/c# though it's more complicated languages I'll try my best to learn it.

Too excited for jackg's certificate at the end of the lesson. Suggesting to add more option on the poll like two or all votes for 2 or more language prefer by the user. ;D

o man the backlog. i have it too and the more i learn about bitcoin and programming the longer it gets. i have things in it that i know for a fact i will get there at least in 3 years.

Me and my flatmate have an argument as to the fastest programming language. I was rooting for c# and go and he was routing for c and c++.

We almost created a treaty on the debate to say that c and cpp are fast at handling primitives and other data structures but c# is better at high levelesque stuff.

Have you programmed assembly pooya? It's fun and the fastest you can get before writing in hex (if not get a computer with an arm chip and have some fun).

And yeah, the backlog is really annoying and it's not helped by discussions with people in the field you just end up searching a load of stuff and wanting to reimplement it.

Ah, @pooya I said python is good at being made a bit faster I did not say it was the fastest not will it ever be at the moment. Unless they switch the interpreter for a compiler and so a few more radical things.

It's a good idea in theory, but you try editing a poll and get back to me...

The other languages will come in time. I don't want someone sat doing 10 tutorials a day and nor do I want someone finishing one and cramming the next into a day...

Yes, It is best to be posted here.
I was lazy in learning that language, I started with you "lesson: 3" but I stopped because of the lack of time.
I hope you will return with more and more exercises.
Also, what is the best YouTube channel for learning? What do you think of this channel (@ProgrammingKnowledge (https://www.youtube.com/user/ProgrammingKnowledge/playlists))?
Are there any sources or references you can add?

I'll take a look at that channel in a bit. I'd encourage translating the topic but I'd suggest you list me as the author and add a link to the original thread just in case there are any discrepancies in translation (it isn't normally symmetric).

Hi sorry yep, I'm hoping this will be exactly what this is used for.



I've been busy with exams and a few other things recently. I'll finish off the solutions for the programming challenges today and post them (I want to make sure they're all accurate before I do).

I'll open up another thread for code reviews and then maybe one for the fundamentals of C# also but I might do them a few days apart...

I've been busy with exams and a few other things recently. I'll finish off the solutions for the programming challenges today and post them (I want to make sure they're all accurate before I do).

I'll open up another thread for code reviews and then maybe one for the fundamentals of C# also but I might do them a few days apart...

Welcome back jackg, haven't seen an update on your thread here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5123974.0 for a 1 and a half month, I am really into your thread even I have no background on any programming languages. Furthermore, I am on YouTube too digging some helpful videos that will add more on my way to learn more about python. Do you have any recommendation of helpful videos on Youtube or any platform that has tutorials via video as that's what I prefer to learn fast.

The thread for code reviews will be another thread as well as the C# lessons, am I right? Can't wait for it too.

Hugeblack posted a YouTube channel above. Perhaps you can take a look at th at.

I'm currently on data and I've used about 5/6gb trying to sync a full node so I'll have to wait for when I can get WiFi again in order to check it.

Yes these will be two different threads that I'll make. I'll probably take on board the suggestions and make them self moderated.

I have added the coding solutions and will shortly post a topic for code review. I did the first four challenges that should be all that is needed to cover the fundamentals.



EDIT: I'm thinking of making all of my code review threads based on all three programming languages or should I do one individually for each (I don't think I've asked this yet).

Every language has its pros and cons. But I personaly prefer java. Its simple and intuitive. You can make almoust everything you need on java

Mate, I would like to make a request for this tutorials of yours,.. Would you please continue some keypoints to python language as well as the c# and javascript + sql (another thread for the C# Language)... Me and my buddy are currently studying these languages and I find your thread useful.

And as I have seen the last part there are some things that I want to know, would you mind showing us some more? Even with some examples of something like a library system or an inventory just like in java,... I have done these things so far using java language, so I would like to know how will the codes looks like on python...

P.S. if you don't mind I would like to talk to you, its your call where to... Whether on telegram or any other chat apps.
I'm way straight and looking forward to learn other languages, so you're help will be also an added information for me.

Hmmm yeah sorry guys. I was about to start the rest of the tutorials and got lumbered with a heavy workload... I'm not doing anything now so I'll try and do a bit more on this.

I also couldn't work out a tutorial for installing visual studio/mono so Ill have to point you guys elsewhere for that bit...



I have telegram, I'm not sure of my username so if you can pm yours?

Would it be helpful if I make some channels on telegram and post there what I post on here also? Or send a link to it.

Send me what you've built in java and I'll try talking a look. I'm not a fan of sql, I use it but don't like it so I doubt I can teach it very well...
