This guide attempts to introduce the 'C' Programming Language to the novice programmer, using Linux as the host environment. This means you can learn C on a Raspberry Pi or you can use a distribution such as Ubuntu linux installed on a PC or use VirtualBox. You should find the examples easy to digest and you should be able to complete it with about 40 hours of study and practice. This guide will not teach you everything you need to know about C programming, nor programming in general. Neither will it teach you everything you need to know about Linux or Raspberry Pi’s. It is almost entirely devoted to teaching you the fundamentals of the C language, using Linux and/or Raspberry Pi as a platform for doing this. This guide starts with the simplest “hello world” program and attempts to explain what each part of the program is for, in a clear and concise manner. You will learn about input and output, variables, loops and conditional tests. Later in the guide you will learn more advanced language features.

Assembly language is as close to writing machine code as you can get without writing in pure hexadecimal. Since it is such a low-level language, it's not practical in all cases, but should definitely be considered when you're looking to maximize performance. With Assembly Language by Chris Rose, you'll learn how to write x64 assembly for modern CPUs, first by writing inline assembly for 32-bit applications, and then writing native assembly for C++ projects. You'll learn the basics of memory spaces, data segments, CISC instructions, SIMD instructions, and much more. Whether you're working with Intel, AMD, or VIA CPUs, you'll find this book a valuable starting point since many of the instructions are shared between processors. This updated and expanded second edition of Book provides a user-friendly introduction to the subject, Taking a clear structural framework, it guides the reader through the subject's core elements. A flowing writing style combines with the use of illustrations and diagrams throughout the text to ensure the reader understands even the most complex of concepts. This succinct and enlightening overview is a required reading for all those interested in the subject . We hope you find this book useful in shaping your future career & Business.
