Mastering Vim by Damian Conway( Visual )

"Roughly half of all software developers use vi/Vim on a regular basis, but most of those who do still use only a tiny fraction of the editor's full feature set.

"A decade after Perl Best Practices was published, tens of thousands of Perl developers continue to read, debate, and adopt most of the recommendations in the book. But, rather than deliver a fixed and eternal set of rules, author Damian Conway wanted to stimulate a mindset of continual re-evaluation of all Perl coding techniques and tools"--Resource description page

Scripting Vim : programming a great editor to make it even better by Damian Conway( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vim is a great editor, but it’s certainly not perfect. Even though it has a huge range of built-in tools and commands, it’s always missing one or two crucial features. Unfortunately, which crucial features are missing—and how they should be provided—is different for just about every single Vim user. Fortunately, Vim provides a way for every single Vim user to modify, enhance, and extend Vim to suit themselves via its built-in scripting language. Developers are only as good as their tools and the most fundamental tool developers have is their editor. Designed for the advanced beginner- to intermediate-level developer with some Vim scripting experience, this course teaches you how to script Vim to make it much more powerful and vastly easier to use."--Resource description page

Understanding regular expressions : identifying, verifying, and manipulating text data efficiently and easily by Damian Conway( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The regular expression (regex) has been around for over 60 years and it's still poorly understood--and incorrectly used--by most developers. Why? Mainly because regexes are rarely taught to developers; they're just left to "pick them up" as they go along. This means most developers don't know what regexes do, how they work, how to use them, how to optimize them, or how to maintain them. In this course, regex expert Damian Conway changes this equation. He explains regexes in detail and shows you the power of these amazing and efficient tools."--Resource description page

Student Response to Hypermedia in the Lecture Theatre: A Case Study by Damian Conway( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Computer Science Department at Monash University (Victoria, Australia) recently began presenting lectures using projection of a hypertext system, HyperLecture, running on a notebook computer as the primary medium. This paper presents a statistical analysis of student reactions to this approach, focusing on the effects, as perceived by the students, on retention and comprehension of material, lecturer performance, and overall benefit of computer-mediated presentation (cmp). The student questionnaire asked: (1) Compared to other lecture series you have taken this semester, were the lecture materials presented as clearly using the computer?; (2) Did the code demonstrations help you to understand the examples better?; (3) Did the code demonstrations help you to remember the concepts presented better?; (4) Would you have liked to take an electronic copy of the lecture material home for study and revision?; (5) How do you think the use of the computer affected the lecturer's presentation style?; (6) Do you prefer computer-based presentations or "traditional" presentations?; And (7) Overall, was the use of a computer to present the course of any benefit in helping you to understand the material presented? Results found that: 68% of students reported that the lecture materials were presented more clearly using the computer; 83% reported helpfulness of the code demonstration for understanding examples, and 75% for understanding long-term recall; 91% showed an inclination to take an electronic copy of the lecture home; 87% reported thinking the presentation method benefited lecturer's presentation style; 83% preferred computer-based presentations; and 82% indicated at least some overall benefit of cmp in understanding lecture materials. Student responses were found to be very positive, with strong correlations between scholastic ability (actual or self-perceived) and student approval of cmp. No significant variations in response were found between males and females, nor between native and non-native speakers. Nine figures illustrate data. (Mas)
Criteria and consideration in the selection of a first programming language by Damian Conway( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: "This paper discusses issues and experiences relevant to the selection of a new programming language for First Year Computer Science Students. A number of criteria are presented which may be relevant to measuring the suitability of such languages. Several wider policy issues which indirectly affect the decision are also addressed. A taxonomy and critical summary of the major candidates for a first language is provided."

Proposal for the future implementation of the Monash Image Library by David Chatterton( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: "The Monash Image Library has been in development for several years. However with the prospect of a large amount of research and development in the area of Colour Image Processing being conducted in the near future, it is unlikely to adequately support different colour spaces without major alterations. Two new object-oriented designs for the library have been put forward, both of which adequately support new colour spaces, including multispectral images. This report will discuss the existing Image Library and the two proposals, in the interest of creating further discussion into the implementation of the Image Library in 1992 and beyond."
