Learning How to Program Episode 2

Finally, after two weeks, I have made the second episode of Learning How to Program. From now on I am hoping to be able to make one of these a week, but who knows what's going to happen. All I know is that I've really learned a lot in the past week or so, and I am extremely excited to learn more. Chances are I'll be diving in to the third episode as soon as possible, if all this 4th of July nonsense doesn't keep me away from my beloved computer (which it most definitely will).

My journey into learning this stuff has not been an easy one, which is why I hope these videos can help make the learning process a bit smoother for someone out there. I probably spent like 6 hours over 3 days learning how to make the very first program, and I almost hit a wall at one point. Maybe I'm just an idiot, but I'm still super happy about what I've already learned.

Recording this episode wasn't easy either. I probably changed the format about 4 or 5 times, and even lost 20 minutes of footage at one point. The good news is that I've finally nailed down the format by dividing each episode into multiple parts, and the actual production of these videos will only get easier from here. Anyway, enough of my rambling.

In this episode I dive straight into the language C. I go over some basic things at first, and then try to give some extra advice to any of you out there who just can't seem to wrap their minds around some of the math, syntax, or implementation of concepts in the language. Then, in Part 2, I proceed to show you the actual code I wrote for all three programs. Like I say in the videos multiple times, if you are actually trying to learn this stuff, don't skip ahead. You are only hurting yourself by looking to Part 2 before you are done coding the three programs. As I say in the videos too, leave any questions in the comments (or here) so I can try to help you if you get stuck.

Lastly, thanks to everyone watching these videos and subscribing. :D
