      For a function for prime numbers you first study integers: even, odd and then composite numbers. Then the exceptions hit you. Thinking...

        My house mate is a Haskell and R fanatic. He swears by them. I figured out how to do this in Python 3 with simple rules but you have to be very exact.

        After years of OO, learning FP via Haskell was quite a mind-bender for me. I like the "pureness" of it, it forces you to adopt an FP mindset.

        Also the syntax is pretty nice. Reads like a mathematical function. There are better places to learn about Monads though.

        I have programmed some PIC microcontroller in C. Was quite interesting, but too basic to really get into how C works. Going to try C++ and Java, might be useful.

        Most of the server-side systems were written in either Java (now, maybe, a JVM-based language) or C#. Many apps are Python-based, including my favorite editor (Sublime).

        C is great for just about anything, but there are lots of snares & traps to watch out for. Best kept for low-level or time-critical stuff.

        I recommend Linux Mint with added bits of KXStudio for music stuff. If anyone wants hours of endless fun with music-/making/ toys, installing the KXStudio distro might be a good idea.

        @DF Ubuntu used to have questionable designs decisions with some prior releases (~2010-2013) that were more of a gimmick. I believe there were numerous complaints about that. That is not to say that current Ubuntu isn't great. Mint has been using Ubuntu/Debian base with improvements in practicality and consistency. Like always, opinions and experiences might vary.

        Less anger, calmer approach to situations. First breath then act. Being able to deal effectively with difficult people and standing your ground. In the end I sleep better and I can read more books. Meditation works for me...

        Oh, sure sure. By types I meant, body scan meditation, breathing-focused, mantra types, visualization, etc. I'm getting into it myself and have been playing around to see what works best for me.

        I started with breathing. First about 30 seconds. Later I added another 30 seconds and followed up by closing my eyes to increase focus. I devised a personal mantra that keeps me calm and it helps me to visualise feelings and thoughts. The best part is (takes a while though) learning to control the flow and then emptying your mind. I always aim to end with an empty mind...
