In Topic: Altador Plot Autocompleter

23 April 2012 - 05:41 AM

Whenever I hit a few snags in the program, I restart to see if it solves it.
If it doesn't, I do that part of the plot manually, then continuing the rest with the program, and it'll usually work until it hits another snag again. :p
(The parts I had to do manually were getting the bandage for Vaeolus, healing Vaeolus and using the rocks to jam the gears)
But even with those snags, it definitely made completing the plot a whole lot easier.

--I have 2 hands & 2 feet, with five fingers & 5 toes on each.
...Wait!! No, not on each..! 5 fingers on each hand & 5 toes on each foot...gah, you get it.

You are a monster. :o
I have... 4 fingers and 1 thumb on each hand. :whistling:
Anyways, welcome to Neocodex. xD

Here's a list of stuff I tried and got me enough skills to code simple programs. Not all are from Universities, but they are still decent for those who prefer hands on.

Code Academy
This is an interactive step by step tutorial where they teach you the basics of programming, then gives you tasks to complete, with immediate feedback of the code you type in from within the browser. If you are stuck, you can look at the forums and there are bound to be people who have met similar problems and have their questions answered. It's great for learning simple coding concepts like while loops, functions, etc.

Stanford School of Engineering
I love Stanford. The online lecture Programming Methodology CS106A (Programming experience not a prerequisite) was the lecture that put everything I learned about programming together. If scripting a working program is like writing literature and the programming language is like English (or any other languages), this course teaches you literature first before jumping into the details of syntax and such, as the main aim of this course is to teach you how to write beautiful code. In the first few lessons, they throw you some working functions, tell you not to fret over how they are made, but just know what they are supposed to do, and then make a robot do something. In a sense, it's like giving you some ready made sentences and asking you to piece it together to form an essay. (As opposed to 'this is how you form a sentence, now go make an essay') The teacher is really good too, he makes the class lively with the funny jokes and examples he makes when teaching, and because of that, it's easier to understand some of the harder concepts.
I'm not sure if most other programming courses are taught like this because I have not checked them out, but the courses I took irl paled in comparison and I learned near 0 from them. This is the single course that made me realise I'm not so stupid that I can't get programming concepts, and made me decide to go pursue a CS/CE degree.

Free video lectures
I think this is more of a directory or some sorts, it lists all courses found online for a particular subject you are interested in. It includes a couple of youtube series that are not full fledged lectures, so it might not be your cup of tea.

Wanted to ask if this will work on Krawks and Draiks on their days then realise it's fixed. :/
Is this part of the forum visible to non members though? Because if it is, anyone could have tipped TNT off.
