part of Tcl for Web Nerds
Lydia Sandon; updated July 2011
Here are our suggestions for improving your knowledge and skills,
organized by goal.
I want to make fuller use of Tcl per se
Tcl for Web Nerds only covers a small part of Tcl/Tk and
public domain Tcl libraries and extensions.
If you want to learn how to build graphical user interface (GUI)
applications with the Tk (toolkit), you're best off reading a book on
Tcl/Tk, such as Brent Welch's Practical
Programming in Tcl and Tk. Remember, you've just finished
a book about Tcl the language and haven't learn anything about Tk
because we expect that all the user interface will be handled by a Web
browser. The Tcl Developer Xchange
offers an up to date list of books and other resources.
I want to become a better Web nerd
It would be nice if modesty prevented us from recommending our own
books, such as
Software Engineering for Internet Applications,
and Alex's Guide to Web Publishing, and SQL for Web Nerds.
I want to become a better computer scientist
Sadly, your path to intellectual glory as a computer scientist will
not be smoothed by your knowledge of Tcl. Modesty surely would
prevent Hal from recommending Structure
and Interpretation of Computer Programs
Sussman; MIT Press) but it is philg who is typing this page
and he feels comfortable telling anyone to start there.
