While the maths and language disciplines created their own systems of symbols to express concepts, the programming discipline, which uses languages that provide a symbolic interface between humans and computers, has not once introduced a new symbol to simplify the concepts of programming. While the functional programming discipline has introduced
Recently I started working on a startup tech business to implement some of my tech ideas. I got a work-space on campus at University of Memphis and they gave me a desk and computer to work on in a shared work-space area where other entrepreneurs are working. The computer they
Below is a transcript of the conversation I had about FileSystems on the Redox-OS Mattermost chat. amdphreak1:08 AM I am researching a new option for filesystems that uses the Associative model of data (graph database model). This will solve alot of problems with maintaining packages and user files across multiple
Vote for an update to the Character Map application on Windows.
In high school and college math courses, we learn about ways to express groups of items as subsets and supersets. This branch of mathematics is called set theory. The expression, X ∈ A means “Item X exists in set A”, or “X is an element of set A”. The symbol
The following is a pair of commands in Haskell that creates a list of numbers and performs a calculation on that list to generate a new list. This is called a list-comprehension. The first statement can be read as Define list_1to100 as a list from 1 to 100, but don’t
During my journey to educate myself on computer science topics that were not covered in my undergraduate University curriculum, I have come across a number of new concepts that have eluded the general discourse in computer programming, one of which is the “trie” structure, pronounced “tree” or “try” (to differentiate
Wide-gamut monitors are becoming ever more popular, but Microsoft has not made Windows operating system easy to use with wide-gamut monitors and wide-gamut color spaces. sRGB is no longer a given, so this needs to be remedied. Windows Color Management System (WCS) The current Windows Color Management System is miserable.
Set Theory In high school and college math courses, we learn about ways to express groups of items as subsets and supersets. This branch of mathematics is called set theory. The expression, X ∈ A means “Item X exists in set A”, or “X is an element of set A”.
In 2019, during my research into finding or making a dream language, I gave a presentation and prepared a slideshow at the local .NET User Group about the history and future of programming. The presentation covers the early history of programming paradigms and the evolution of C-like languages from Label/Goto
