We all like it when companies pay you for doing what you do everyday. This is what oDesk. is doing lately. They have changed the way their freelancing process works - which means you can now pick more than 5 jobs at a time. These are good paying tasks that any self-respecting software person out there can do.
The even have videos to show you how to get started. I thought I should post it here because in the last couple of weeks, I've been seeing lots of traffic to this blog - all looking for information on getting started with oDesk.
If however, you already know how their new system works, you may also want to check out Hubpages as well. I've only spent a few months on and off getting to know the site well.
Which ever works for you, please leave a comment below and would like to know your thoughts.
Anyway, I recently got a notification that 21st Century C has been released. As a former C programmer, I thought I should get a copy.
This book is ok, it does not present any thing new other than talk about different approach you could take today to solve the problems you had decades ago. C has not changed, but programming techniques, technology and design patterns have evolved - so that's basically what this book is all about. One thing though that this book has going for it is the POSIX standard that its used through out.
So, if you are looking to brush up your C experience, you might find this book quite useful. And writing C code that is portable across many different platforms will not be an issue because this book focuses on standard C.
