Amortization Definitive (C++, C#, Java, etc)

Amortization... it is the process of accounting for, and usually decreasing, an amount of money over a period of time. You can amortize a mortgage or various types of loans, and you can amortize assets based on their value and what their value will be in so many periods of time. Many newbies on our boards have asked about this very project as part of the computer science courses and ...

Kicking the BucketSort in C#

Ever hear the term "Kicking the bucket"? If not, it is usually used here in North America to mean someone died. Well rest assured I am not going to be whipping out expressions like "I see dead programmerssss" or anything in this post. Ok, maybe I just did, but the idea behind BucketSort (aka Bin sort) is just that, creating buckets of numbers which we attack with our choice of ...

Pig Latin Definitive (C++, C#, Java, VB.NET, PHP)

No wonder they sent ...

It also makes it great to see the differences between languages and some challenges (as we will see with our Java example). On this entry ...

C++ or C#, In the End Does It Even Matter?

This debate rages on and on and really appears to have no end in sight. Everyone tackles this long winded discussion from a different angle and it even gets into verbal attacks between parties. Some quoting one source while another quoting another source when really people have lost the overall picture that programming is meant to solve... providing a solution to a problem. Some languages work better on certain problems ...

Sieve of Eratosthenes in Java / C#

Eratosthenes, what an egg head huh? I wonder if he could have coded his own algorithm in Java or C#. Would he have known what a class, helper method, and a delegate is? The ancient Greeks had the math world pretty much locked up for their time... except that whole world at the center of the universe thing and that the heavens were in perfectly circular orbits. Whoa were ...
