On this page are links to resources for Truman computer science
students. I welcome suggestions, comments, and corrections.
General Computing Links
on pair programming for students that explains how to do it
right, courtesy of NC State.
Truman ITS maintains
a set of
instructions for all sorts of useful things like
connecting to Truman's network resources from off campus,
connecting to network drives, etc.
GNU/Linux and Unix Links
I recommend the Ubuntu
Linux distribution for students just starting out with Linux.
The are several good places to find help for Linux questions,
including askubuntu and
the ubuntu.com wiki.
CTAN is the go-to source
for LaTeX itself, as well as help and other resources.
Tom Schneider's incredibly complete resource
page for biologists has endless help for non-biologists
PGF for drawing many of the types of diagrams
needed for completing CS homework, as it supports pdflatex
Ada Programming Links
The incredibly helpful
Online Book of Linux Ada Programming guide to coding Ada
in the GNU/Linux environment. A great capstone project would
be to add to this documentation project!
I have written a guide to help
you get Ada on your Mac OS X computer.
