Why is it so hard for me to learn C programming? I'm reading The C Programming Language (Second Edition) and I'm losing interest. I understood the previous concepts but now I'm losing focus and it's going to get worse with pointers and files. Why?
What are you talking about, dude? Do you mean this book is boring?I can’t believe it! I think this text is one of the most entertaining, thought-provoking, and immersing texts I have ever read. I keep a physical hard copy on my desk. I have a PDF copy (from which I took the above snapshot) on both my laptop and my phone. I’ve read it at least 5 times. I love it. Just love it.But seriously though, what you have been doing is reading through an excellent programming reference, while asking yourself why you are not turning into the next Dennis Ritchie. This is like reading an English dictionary and asking yourself why you are not turning into the next Shakespeare. It doesn’t work like that.You need to practice. Programming is practice. Try completing a programming course on edX or Coursera. Read through, and practice the tutorials within, Cprogramming.com and W3Schools. Pick up a small project and start applying the knowledge you thus far gained. If you are stuck, go to Stack Overflow and search for the thing you are stuck in. Fix that and carry on.The K&R book is an awesome read that you should keep on your desk, but its not how you learn C.Thanks for A2A.

What options are available for a company looking to manage accounts payable, receivable, and inventory management for multiple warehouses with software as a service?
It’s difficult to consolidate all the core functions in one integrated platform. Agreeing with rest of the answers, going for an all-in-one software to manage your business functions is certainly not a good idea.The reason, in most cases the automated environment that are provided by all in one software companies often miss the sophistication. The function of the sale, accounting, warehouse and shipping department are not intact, they are loosely bonded which create operational inefficiency.However, there are SAAS based solutions available in the market which offers complete Inventory, Order, and Shipping management solution and can be integrated with high-end Accounting & Warehouse management software.The point of concern is that the software which you adopt should have the capability to get seamlessly connected with other specialized third-party solution.The company I work with, Orderhive is Software as a Service solution provider that combines Inventory, Orders, Shipping, Accounting & Warehouse automation capabilities in a single package.Orderhive provides the necessary APIs & proven development skills that help you integrate your Online store & Marketplaces, Existing legacy system, Shipping carrier & Accounting software to a Centralized system, from where you can monitor & manage your key business function.Some of the core business processes that Orderhive automates are-Centralized inventory control by integrating selling channels like Amazon, eBay, Shopify, Etsy, Walmart, Sears, Newegg, BigCommerce.-Product catalog, variants, bundling and kitting.-Multi-warehousing, multi-location and multiple currencies.-Stock transfers across warehouse and locations-Replenishment planning & Purchase Management-Zero and low stock alert, triggers, and reports-Inventory forecasting based on historical data-Order Management, order tracking-Shipping Management, creating shipments, generating shipping labels, tracking of the fulfillment process.-Shipping cost calculator to estimate costs and delivery date-Accounting Management, create the invoice, make payment, receive payment.On top of this, Orderhive also has the capability to provide you with the custom solution, if your current business flow cannot be automated by any inbuilt SAAS solution.You can extend functionality and capability for handling your core operations by integrating Orderhive with third party solution.Customized Unified Accounting process that fits your unique financial workflow.Custom shipping management workflow that automates your complex fulfillment process.Custom warehouse management features which can enhance your current capability of handling inventory management activity.I hope this helps.
Search Engine Marketing: What tools does digital/PPC agencies use to make reports for clients?
Broadly, it depends on both the agency and the client.Having known performance marketing agencies, I would say that larger agencies having multiple clients across geographies have moved on from PDF/CSV/XLS reports. Honestly, these static reports have long fallen behind the dynamic needs of performance marketers today.Live data across a plethora of channels, joined with analytics packages to give a full funnel view of performance is the norm now. The greater the depth data is available in, the better - since it would contribute to more insightful reports that bring out the true value of agency efforts.Clarisights currently works with a number of performance agencies, automating their reporting at scale and saving hundreds of hours each month. In addition, clients love seeing insights like -a) The performance comparison of dominant colors in ad creatives across various product categories, b) Why did a particular adset exhibit outstanding performance in one custom audience, but poor performance in another,and a lot more!Full disclosure - I work with Clarisights. All views expressed are my own.
Is it too late to become a good Data Scientist?
You could probably do a masters in data science (e.g. MS in Analytics - College of Arts and Sciences | University of San Francisco) in a year. That would get you in decent shape. Many data scientists come into the field from academia, and so are not particularly great software engineers—your experience there in writing proper code would be valuable.But, if you’re looking for an alternative option, I recommend potentially looking into Data Engineering roles instead. There’s a bit of a glut of data scientists, but there’s a real shortage of competent Data Engineers. Your software-engineering experience will be especially useful there, and as you learn on the job, you could start to switch into more DS oriented roles as well.
