My earlier work in C, C++ and C#

Cplus.About.com screenshotThe tutorials I wrote on C++ and C# on cplus.about.com between 2006 and 2013 are all a bit dated now. Both languages have been updated several times since 2013 when I stopped writing for About.com. But thanks to the Wayback machine you can view all of my work from the early stages in Mid 2006 to the finish in July 2013.  I owe the copyright to this material so I can reuse it as I wish.

On this page, there’s an index to 43 C tutorials, most written by me.  So as a little side task, I’m downloading these, cleaning them up, fixing the odd error and adding them to this website via the Tutorials page. Some but not all are also available on the ThoughtCo website which is the reinvention of About.com.

Ironically I got better at writing for them towards the end. About.com had been very successful back in the late 90s when the web was still fairly new but could never sustain that and declined more or less from the year 2000. I think the highest daily viewing figure I ever got was 12,000 pages but some of the others (particularly Southern Cooking) got in the millions.

I recommend you visit archive.org earlier in the day as it slows up a bit once the USA wakes up typically around 1.00 PM (GMT). Given the volume of stuff it stores, it is a totally amazing place.
