2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 66,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

A glimpse of undefined behavior in C

Christopher Cole

A few weeks ago a coworker of mine stopped by my desk with a coding question.  We’d recently been quizzing each other over our C knowledge, so I smiled and braced myself for the hell which was clearly to come.

He wrote a few lines of code up on the whiteboard and asked what the program output:

It seemed pretty straightforward. I explained the order of operator precedence – postfix binds before multiplication which binds before addition and also that multiplication and addition’s associativity was left to right, so I grabbed the marker and started writing out the arithmetic.

After I smugly scribbled down the answer, my coworker replied a simple “nope”. I thought for a few minutes, and was stumped. I couldn’t quite remember the order of the postfix operators’ associativity. Furthermore, I knew that wouldn’t even change the order of evaluation here as associativity rules only apply between…

What Makes A Great Game : A Gentle Reminder for Programmers.

Computer Technology Reviews & Tips

It’s easy to get lost in all the details of building a great video or computer game – so easy in fact, that we can forget the parts of a game that make them fun to play. The following serves as a gentle reminder of what prompts players to play games in the first place.

Binary Numbers – The Easy way to Calculate!

Learning C with Bermuda

The table below explains everything!

 

0 1 0 0 1 0 0 1
27 26 25 24 23 22 21 20

 

Simply add the 2x when that specific place has ‘1’ instead of ‘0’

Therefore, the example above will be 01001001 = 26+23+20= 64+8+1 = 73

 

Simple and easy way to calculate binary numbers :)

 

OR you can simply use my Binary Swift v2 :P
