I am a computer programmer hobbyist who was to learn more about how to be a better programmer. I currently trying to learn python as a scripting language, because I started with Ruby because when I looked at how programmer would use that to write real networking code but so far all I see is rails, rails, and rails; but the syntax for networking was great how the sockets could be used with the kernel module loops. Python is the only scripting language that I see that most coders could use the word "hacking" with but the syntax and multiple inheritance does make for ugly code. I tried Java as well but from what I have done and seen Java can only go so far, which I am displeased with that because of the JVM and the byte code I thought would be used more because of the old Java saying
"compile once, run anywhere".
I mean Java is used a lot because of its cross platform capabilities weather its for moblie, networking, or data structure design. Most of the time it does come back to C, the language that UNIX/LINUX was written in riding on the CPU which does add a lot of performance out of it 2nd only to assembly languages. I am not in this to crash site I am in this to learn the secrets within the computer that only a few people have seen, and most people dont care about.
I want to not be the king of the internet but the the pope, since the title of pope use to mean the keeper of the sacred knowledge; the knowledge most people do not want to talk the time to learn. I am not in this as a hobbyist I am in this because I love computer, data, and how I see the internet being used in the next ten years. I want to explore every part of the internet and interior digital work of the CPU.
Can anyone out there help me become the programmer I know I can be, and help me get started??
