A New Series of Lessons: Programming with Haiku | Haiku Project

Since I started publishing my Learning to Program with Haiku lesson series back in January, I have, on many occasions, seen comments asking for lessons aimed at current codemonkeys who want to break into development for Haiku. Here begins a new series of programming lessons aimed at people who already have a basic grasp on C++: Programming with Haiku.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/darkwyrm/2010-09-08_new_series_lessons_programming_haiku/

Thanks for doing these lessons. My goals is to do 2 or 3 lessons per week. I wouldn’t mind any encouragement. I’ve been getting interested in operating systems but I don’t have a lot of coding experience. So I have a big learning curve, but I’m excited to get started.

The link of the lesson are broken. Beemulated have a problem or is not active anymore? Darkwyrm there are you?

I’m sorry to see that Darkwyrm hasn’t posted in a few years. I am slowly going through his tutorials. I’m not sure if I will ever end up contributing something useful to Haiku. It seems like a daunting task. But I am trying to learn and I currently have some programming questions if anyone wants to help me with some very basic problems. Please let me know.

Is Darkwyrm posting as “Haiku” now?

No, the “Haiku” user is there to mirror everything that is posted to the website, as we use the forum here as the engine to power website comments. And it seems we didn’t even properly forward the date from the article.

DarkWyrm has moved on to other things, for now. But there are many other people ready to help, even if they don’t all write books.

Thank you PulkoMandy.
I am working my way through his tutorials which are very good. I was going to ask him a pretty basic question and I don’t want to bother people with such basic questions if they don’t want to hand hold a newbie. But if there are people who are willing to answer some questions, I’d take advantage of that if I could.

It’s the point of this forum that people can help each other. And if it can result with more people comfortable with writing or debugging code, it’s even better :slight_smile:


There are no silly questions just stupid answers
