C programming tutorial (by Adam)

Posted by Ed on August 29, 2013

Here is a great C programming tutorial by Adam. It’s currently made up of 87 videos where each video lasts for 5-10 minutes. I really like the drawings that illustrate what is going on in the memory.

I went through the tutorial by watching and simultaenously copying the source code. And before I would go to the next video I recreated the code from memory which I found best to learn the concepts.

Sugar makes us sleepy

Here’s an interesting article that explains why sugar makes us sleepy:

Why Sugar Makes Us Sleepy (And Protein Wakes Us Up)

Orexin, Sugar, and Insulin

I have noticed after eating a yoghurt and a pudding that I was getting very tired afterwards and it might be due to the sugar. I will try to incorporate more protein and less sugar in my diet.
