Tools to learn programming

This is what works for me . Feel free to shoot me a comment or an email.

  1. Get a real computer – tablet ,smartphone doesn’t work, been there done that
  2. Vim . Get on the commandline with the best editor ever!
  3. GCC. I am learning C/C++ because I want to learn the hard way. *insert flame here*
  4. GDB –very important. I use http://cgdb.github.com .
  5. irc:c++@freenode . nothing like my own help/support line. I use Irrsi for my client.
  6. ideone.comĀ 
  7. books:C++ without fear and K&R
  8. tmux – the terminal multiplexer. Coz one term is just isn’t enough.
  9. caffeine lots of it!
