Cool things I’ve found online#
Compiler Explorer: Compare code from a variety of languages with the compiled assembly with different compiler flags in a hihglighted, side-by-side format. Very useful if you are learning software reverse engineering.
SQL Fiddle: A tool for easy online testing and sharing of database problems and their solutions.
Use The Index, Luke: A site explaining SQL indexing to developers; nothing about administration.
Select Star SQL: Gentle, relevant, and interactive introduction to SQL. Learn by solving a real problem with real data.
SQL Murder Mystery: Another engaging introduction to SQL.
REPL: Great pair programming tool. Named after the read-evaluate-print loop computing environment, this web-based IDE is great for working on a project with friends or teaching.
The Deadlock Empire: A fun introduction to some concurrency pitfalls. Don’t worry about the C# orientation. You’ll learn things that you can apply to any language.
Kubernetes Learning Path: Great kubernetes material.
Oh Shit, Git!?!: For when you stray from the happy path.
Explain Git with D3: Great interactive graph visualizations for git concepts.
Learn Git Branching: My go-to recommendation for folks learning git.
Pythex: Python regex helper
FLAWS2: AWS security challenges
ttl.sh: Open Source, free, no signup, ephemeral docker registry.
shellcheck: Verbose error messages and recommendations for shell scripts/commands.
An Infinitely Large Napkin: “The Infinitely Large Napkin is a light but mostly self-contained introduction to a large amount of higher math.” I found it referenced as “The Feynman Lectures for math”.
Vulnerabilities 1001: C-Family Software Implementation Vulnerabilities: Vulnearbility exploitation bootcamp
NaNoGenMo: Write code that generates a 50k word novel. Since 2013!
