Linux programming for beginners
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 7, 2011
i have been using linux distributions ( the Ubuntu and suse operating systems ) for two years and I have been well acquainted to the basics like writing commands on the terminal, and a little shell scripting. I have taken a full course on c and c++ and I can write codes to perform meaningful tasks, but still executed on the terminal. I wanted to join the world of software (application) developement for linux system, and I am very eager to know what it takes to write real softwares like gedit, simple ones like typing master software that tells your typing speed and even the complex ones like GIMP. I feel like GUI programming is the most difficult part of any programming language. I once started reading a book titled Beginning Linux programming by Neil Matthew and Richard Stones and I am in dout if it really is the first step I should take to get started with application developement. I would be very glad to see any suggestions regarding where I should get started and if there is a compl
Advanced Programming in the UNIX.. vs The Linux Programming Interface: A Lin..

I am taking some OS course(C programming and Unix) this autumn and the book used is: Advanced Programming in the UNIX® Environment (2nd Edition).
After reading loads of comments on this(mostly embracing it) I came cross this book which is newer: The Linux Programming Interface: A Linux and UNIX System Programming Handbook
So I was thinking that for the same price I could get the second one which also is more Linux oriented. What do you think? Anyone who read it?
Windows Vs Mac Vs Linux programming abilities
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 15, 2010
Windows and Mac seem to be more unified than Linux. Shouldn't Windows and Mac be better at programming than Linux? I use Windows XP, I don't want to try Mac, I use Ubuntu and Puppy Linux in a "Live-USB". I've never taken computer science, engineering, or anything related to computers. So i ask you, which OS is the best for programming and why?

I'm not much of a computer programmer .I've learnt a bit of c for semester.I would like to make the best use of ubuntu by learning linux programming and bash scripting.
I would like to know the prerequisites for learning linux programming.I hope my minimal knowledge of c would be sufficient.but is this the right way to start programming for a beginner or should i proceed to learning more about c/c++ first?
Free Linux Programming Course

If anyone is interested, there is an online course in basic Linux programming available at:
Essentially once enough people have signed up for the course, a new "semester" begins and you are admitted to the mailing list and typically one or two lessons per week are released. There are eighteen lessons in all. The focus is on C, but GUI programming in Tcl is touched upon as well, and there is a class projects at the end of the class.
No grades are given, and the environment if very friendly, so if anyone is interested in getting their feet wet with some programming, this might be a good place to start.
Current lessons are available here:
if you want to take a gander at what they look like. Hope this helps someone.

Best linux programming notebook?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 11, 2012
I'm looking for an ideal laptop for programming on linux. I currently have an old Thinkpad T400 (poor display, but awesome keyboard) and an Alienware M17x-R2 (good performance, incredible screen RGBLED 1920x1200, but gets really hot on linux even though fans are constantly running, you can feel the heat on the keyboard and its uncomfortable - probably related to AMD graphics). I am looking for a laptop with a good linux support, good battery life, and a very high-resolution display (1920x1080?). I also want the size to be fairly compact from 13" to 15" (fairly light too). I want this laptop to replace both notebooks, although I'm not expecting it to outperform the 17" monster alienware, but I am expecting good performance. It doesn't really need to game, but it would be nice if it a little GPU power behind it for mobile graphics development. I will leave hardcore gaming up to a custom desktop with my leftover money. Does such a notebook exist? I would like to keep the pr
