Welcome to the...
...home of Andreas Schipplock
My name is Andreas Schipplock. People often just call me Schippi(e). I am a specialised computer scientist for software development (also known as code monkey). In 2009 on June the 16th I graduated from the Heinz-Nixdorf vocational college.
I like to write about certain topics; mainly about programming or scripting languages but also about social interactions in office settings. And this is the place where I put them. This website is all static html and there is no comment system because I don't want one. If you want to contact me, please either use Twitter, send me an email to andreas at schipplock dot de, call or write a postcard.
My latest publications
In this text I show how to implement proper localisation in Bash.
Kill your side projects
I try to explain that side projects can be a burden for a programmer. For various reasons. I try to emphasize my idea by showing examples. If you feel bad just by having some unfinished side projects, I invite you to read this text. It's short! Go ahead! :)
This is a short introduction to the Scheme programming language. It assumes you are using DrRacket. It's not complete but covers the very basics. This should get you going in an hour if you already are a programmer.
The Eiffel method
I once was learning the Eiffel programming language and I found a Mooc by Bertrand Meyer and Marco Piccioni from ETH Zürich. It was a refreshing experience.
