I'm new to the group. My name is Tameek. I'm 26 years old, and currently
studying for the Linux+ certification. I'm a bit of a noobie, I've been
running Ubuntu only since 6.04 and have recent played around with SUSE
11.0. Although I have only been using Linux for a few years I'm I've
already chosen a side when it comes to my editor and Linux GUI. I'm Team
VI/GNOME all the way! I'm very much interested in learning programming, but
I'm not really sure where to begin. I find shell scripts using the CLI easy
to understand. I always hear that C is the foundation of Linux and today's
programming languages (I also read a little on COBOL, and FORTRAN but I
don't see many jobs looking for programming knowledge with the these older
languages. Any suggestion are welcome. Also feel free to throw any of
those Linux/Unix books my way, particularly shell programming.
