More info before starting to code

From my last blog, I started to talk about understanding concepts before you actually start learning what you are going to learn. For me, as I said before and probably some of you will see, my native language is not English. But still, I have managed to learn and work with computers since I was 7 years old. For over 30 years. Last 15 as a professional. Almost every book that I have read about computers has been in English.

So when I start to go through C++ and C#, I will start first with pseudo code. Then build the program in both languages and we go into the binary of the code to understand what happened when it was built.

Sudo code is a way to explain what you are building with words, so you can think and use normal words in the way you want to create the code. In the beginning, this task will be essential and will make everything a lot easier to learn.

This is the way we will also take apart more difficult code and make it more understandable. This can also make you think about naming your variables in a way that it will be easier for other people to understand what you want to do with your code.

Different projects I am working on at the moment

Tropicalfavourites.com

One of the biggest projects I have done so far, is this one. It is a website with underwater pictures from tropical places. As far as I know, this one is the biggest gallery from one photograph.Dell Tropical Favourites

I am re-doing the webpage to C# ASP.NET MVC.

Make it more interactive and user friendly with a focus on seo.

Us 2 Europe is another site I am re-doing, this site was written in php, but I am re-writting it to  C# ASP.NET MVC as well.

For the web projects that I have at the moment, I use C# ASP.NET  MVC, this is because it is a langauge I feel is best suited to what I am trying to do. But as you can see, my homepage is just a wordpress side. This is because it gives me what I need. And that is what you have to take with you on every project you have

Back to Basics

I have been using Domain.com for a while now. But endless hours dealing with support and crappy system, I finally caved. So instead of having my wordpress site on haraldangell.com, I have redirected my webpage to haraldangell.wordpress.com.

I will be on this site until my domain name is ready to be renewed, and then I will be look for other alternatives. But since this will be my primary site for some months now, then this site will be updated more.

This blog will come in 3 flavours; Computer related, Personal Growth and Just Personal.

When I try to go on a subject, I will try to go more in the depth on stuff. I will go though the basics on C++ and C#, and then try to break down the more complex things apart and then go back to the basic to understand it.

With the personal growth will be something of the same. I will take the complexity that we create and go back to the basics to understand why and how things are working.

We are complexe human beings, that lives in a very complex world. So we have a tendency to complicate stuff that are very basic. Because it is so simple, our mind do not cope with that simplicity and try to explain and complicate everything.

So now it is time to go back to basics.

Life is, therefore I am!
