Good Programming books? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Your ohms law program looks fine. The only thing I'd say about it is that it is common practice to declare all your variables at the start of the function. It just helps with organization and readability when your functions get longer.

I didn't see that you were going to be an EE when I first read your post. As a CpE student I had to take many of the same classes as EEs for the first first years of school, and yes you will probably learn C and Assembly. The whole idea is that these languages have less abstraction and are much more closely related to the hardware in a computer. For example, in order to fully understand C you need to understand how everything is stored and organized in memory, and in Assembly you are actually dealing with symbolic representations of machine code specific to the cpu you are working with.

Basically these are the most common languages used to program embedded processors or micro-controllers, which are what you are most likely to encounter as a EE.

If you're doing EE, I will add to everyone saying C and Assembly will be what you're looking at. The o'reilly books are great, but most books don't have nearly as much information as the 6000 tutorials that google will turn up, plus Google Code U. I recommend getting familiar with Linux(ubuntu is very easy) as it will make your life easier with C. Also you should look into...verilog? I think that was what I had begun learning about before I switched from CS/CE to CS/Math.

Yes, he will probably have to learn either Verilog or VHDL during some course. These are used to program FPGAs.
