Fortran (short for Formula Translation) is a high-level programming language commonly used for scientific and engineering applications. It has been around for a long time and is especially well-suited for numerical and scientific computing. In this tutorial, we’ll cover some basic concepts to get you started with Fortran programming. 1.… Read More... "Fortran: A Basic Introduction"
Assembly language is a low-level programming language that is specific to a computer architecture. It’s a human-readable representation of machine code, which is the binary code that a computer’s central processing unit (CPU) understands. Understanding assembly language helps you gain insights into how computers work at a fundamental level. It’s… Read More... "Assembly: A Basic Introduction"
As we all know, and some refuse to believe, billionaires are evil. Nobody reaches that level of wealth without using and abusing the people who work for them and breaking a few laws(and in a world where millions have nothing to eat, drink or a house to live in, accumulating… Read More...

Similarly, a web server takes requests (orders) from your computer, fetches the requested… Read More... "Web Servers: A Basic Introduction"
For the first time, maps made with information from the past 30 years show that parts of Brazil now have a arid climate, like deserts. This happened because the Earth got hotter due to climate change, combined with damage caused by humans. A note from scientists at Cemaden (National Center… Read More...
