Vi, Python and Bash in learning queue

From a month I doesn't have a Windows System even installed, and after finishing some books I want to learn more about using Linux and programming in Linux.
I think that for a beggining I want to :
Learn Vi,
Learn Bash, and more about Linux terminals, and Linux System as... System ;)
Learn Python.

I have started reading about Python some time ago at: in Polish to get it easier, but after That I think about reading a whole book in English. Anyway I started from Python, but now I think that while learning Python I want to use Linux Editor, I have to choose from Vi and emacs but Vi wins for me, without  a reason - I just fight with it a couples of times, and at least know basics :)
It is good idea as I think to write Python in Vi instead of NetBeans, gedit(good with addons), or Eclipse. I can't use them in terminal ...

Generally I must learn more about Linux, I use only some basics command and often use google to do something more than cd/pwd/rm/touch ... I really need to know more.

So know I am serching good sources for learning Vi and Vim but rather a long one. To after reading it I wan't need to search and read in another 10 places. For now I found : and ACMS - Beginner's Guide to the Vi editor but maybe I finally buy one of this books. If anyone knows a good site where I can learn Vi and Vim, let me know in comments :)

I am also serching for a site about Linux and scripting, for now I foud some about Linux and some about scripting but they always are so small and have to little information. I am considering two books: and

I have spent only about 10minutes for serching while writing this post but I hope to get some interesting links from readers of this post :)

If you knows any really good site about vi, linux or bash please let me know. Finally I can buy one but I must be shure that it's woth my money :)


  1. I does't have?
    resonable reson
    I just fight with it a couples of time, and
    To afer reading
    maybe I finally bay one of this books
    If anyone know

    it's woth

    niestety nie pomogę, ale gryzą mnie w oczy te w.w. błędy
    także popraw je i powodzenia

How to simulate slow connection (developer proxy in Node.js)

Update: If you use Chrome then you can use "Throttling" so simulate slow network for all your assets. This should be easier than proxy.

Toggle device modeChoose Network type.Refresh the page 


For some time I wanted to use some proxy for development and testing of eg. slow internet connection, but it was hard to find something useful and free. I know there is Charles but buy it to use it at most one in a month is not for me.

I started thinking about Node.js, maybe I can write proxy for me? But fortunately I found one.

With this module I can write really short code to create slow server:

var http = require('http'), httpProxy = require('http-proxy'); httpProxy.createServer(function (req, res, proxy) { var buffer = httpProxy.buffer(req); setTimeout(function () { proxy.proxyRequest(req, res, { host: 'localhost', port: 8080, …

Course Review: The Bitfountain iOS 8 with Swift Immersive

This is second big iOS learning project. For first one read iOS Programming book review. As I only have two of them done I have to compare them somehow.

I am mindful that it took me a really long time to finish it (since last autumn). For a couple of months this year I didn't even have the internet to learn it, so it could not be helped. But last half of the June I've spent watching the videos every day and managed to finish it before any new internet problems.

So how was it?
In my opinion, it's great if you're starting out. There are a lot of basics, and seeing how to do things in XCode just makes your learning much easier than looking at the photos in the book. On the other hand, learning is more shallow and it is much easier to just follow the videos and learn only the basics without bigger picture about iOS SDK. I somehow missed more challenging exercises (even though I don't like to do them ;)

Course it pretty long but many videos are quite short (1-2…
