November 2020 summary

November started with me realising, that on its basic level Effective C is almost read. However, I felt that I still lacked knowledge. Therefore, I’ve jumped back to Understanding and using C pointers to get some – especially in the areas of arrays and strings. Along the way came final chapters of the Effective C, and I was done.

For the time being I’ve decided I need practice. Lots of it. I’ve wondered how to make it both worth my time and fun. I’ve thought about doing coding katas, however they are pretty often heavily based on algorithms and nitty-gritty quirks. I wanted to do some actual coding, rather than spend hours trying to solve some kind of puzzle in five lines of code. For sure, there will be time for that in the future. Right then I needed everyday use of the language. That was the plan. Unfortunately, as usual, the life intervened. I had some hard time at work coming, so I’ve decided to go back to the theory of operating systems. I’ve just knew that with exhausting time at work I would not be able to give 100% doing after-hours coding.

As You can see below – the whole November was filled with lecture of Tanenbaum’s book – third chapter is about memory management. It was an interesting read, learned a lot and put that into notes. I hope that with upcoming Christmas time I will get some rest and additional time to go back to actual coding in C. Wish me luck 😉
