Open Source Media Convertor

Yaffmi is a free, open-source (GPLv3) multimedia conversion application for Windows written in C# / .NET. It is easy to use, supports hundreds of formats, and leverages the popular FFmpeg media encoding / decoding library.

Since I like to delve into C# projects I will definitely be giving this a try and see how it works from the inside. I thought I should post this, although I don’t have much use for a convertor at the moment I know that most are very expensive and it’s nice to have an open source one handy just in case.

Check it out here.

Great resources for learning the C programming language.

I am currently learning the C programming and language and was searching out some supplemental learning materials when I came across these great resources. So I thought I would share them. The first one is a link to Stanford’s Computer Science department, there is a great wealth of free online materials that you can peruse to your hearts desire. Need a summary of the features of C without the hassle of looking them up all over the web? well check this Essential C document. It breaks down all the basic terminology, key words, control structures, functions and data types all in one location.

If you want to check out some more from Stanford, check out their library that has some great material as well. Here.

Another sure-fire way to get the best materials for free to become the most-excellent programming that no doubt you will become. Check out these free lectures from Harvard. A few years ago EdX started up, alongside other online learning places like Udacity, Khan Academy and Coursera. This course is an EdX program, without actually signing up for EdX. It is free material already offered through Harvard. So check them out too, videos, lectures, slides, homework. It has it all.
