I've created shell scripts for catching three problems: abuse of the passive voice, weasel words, and lexical illusions. The point of these scripts is to make sure that my students and I make a conscious choice to use these constructs. The meta-point of this article is that writers should learn their individual weaknesses. And, when writers are programmers, we should enlist automation to combat these weaknesses.

LPTHW emphasizes precision, attention to detail, and persistence by requiring you to type each exercise (no copy-paste!) and make it run, as well as to read up on outside topics and to return to exercises and ideas that you don't understand, and understand them.

At the end of LPTHW, you'll know the basics of coding, and be ready to move on to more challenging books. Or at least you'll have tried something new.

The HTML version of the book is free to read online and you can give it to anyone you want so long as you do not charge for it, and do not modify it.

This entire blog post is just a wordy version of Aesop’s fable about the Wolf and the Mastiff. For the hurried, please just skip the rest and read that instead.

Industrial designer and tinkerer Markus Kayser spent the better part of a year building and experimenting with two fantastic devices that harness the sun’s power in some of the world’s harshest climates. The first he calls a Sun Cutter, a low-tech light cutter that uses a large ball lens to focus the sun’s rays onto a surface that’s moved by a cam-guided system. As the surface moves under the magnified light it cuts 2D components like a laser. Next, Kayser began to examine the process of 3D printing. Merging two of the deserts most abundant resources, nearly unlimited quantities of sand and sun, he created the Solar Sinter, a device that melts sand to create 3D objects out of glass.

If you've seen the film Ponyo (or if you grew up in Asia) you may have seen a sort of toy boat powered by a very simple steam engine. This sort of boat is variously called a putt-putt or pop-pop. They work by having a very simple boiler powered by a candle in which water is turned to steam. The steam forces water out of a pair of tubes creating a partial vacuum which sucks water back in. The distinctive pop sound comes from the movement of the thin metal boiler's walls.

You have been sort of an idol to me, a real hero. You were so admirable. You got a lot of things right that others didn’t. I was in love. I praised you. I mentioned you in countless presentations, hundreds of screenshots and many talks. You have been a source of inspiration for me, and i want to thank you. I was proud to know you. But not anymore.

This list is inspired by others out there, but, as the title says, it’s about doing, as opposed to knowing or learning. First-hand experience is the absolute best route for exploring the fun things that can be done with computers. Once we make it work and/or surpass the hurdles, we feel empowered (startup companies, anyone?). It also builds up the critical skill of finding things out by oneself.
