Webstore for Google’s Chrome

April 11th, 2011

With the advent of Google Chrome 10 (simultaneously released with Firefox 4) the Chrome App Store is available whenever you open a new tab in the browser.

There are many free apps, most of which are geared towards the Android smartphone users and not the desktop or laptop user browsing at home.

February 24th, 2011

NerdKits is a spartan turn on the whole Arduino phenomenon.

Since the Atmel microcontroller used by NerdKits is not soldered to a board (as is the case with Arduino) the NerdKits is more flexible in terms of design and learning, but harder to make a final product out of.

(“NerdKits” is not the best name for a product either.)

C programming in easy steps

February 15th, 2011

C Programming In Easy Steps (3d ed), by Mike McGrath, can be a good intro to the language, but only, I think, if you have some experience with the basics of programming in general.

It is also a good book to keep around as a reference for the basics of the C language.
