After looking through quite a number of topics on this forum, it seems as though a lot of the tutorials are programming- and language-specific. I would love to see some tutorials/lessons on a variety of more general computer science concepts. A few things I would like to see:
- Algorithms and 'Big Oh' notation (with common programming examples)
- Computer architecture (connecting software to hardware, heap vs stack, etc)
- How compilers and interpreters work
- Data structures (what they are, where they are best used, how they are represented at the low level)
...And other more general topics like these. I admit I haven't looked through all the tutorials, so maybe some of these have already been done. Also I'd love to contribute here as well, but of course my request is driven by my wanting to learn about these topics
EDIT: I suppose there isn't currently a great spot for tutorials of this kind...perhaps a new forum subsection could be made for General Computer Science topics?

The tutorials are meant to be language specific. Though there are a few that aren't (as a lot of the tutorials can be extended to other languages).

Well, I'm sure there are also wikis for language-specific tutorials I just think it would be nice to have everything collected here. But thanks for the links!
EDIT: I think that since this is a computer science forum, and not just a programming forum, these would be well accepted here. Obviously this is just my opinion, and it's up to the admins to decide whether or not it would enhance the site, but I think many members would appreciate more conceptual tutorials like these. For example, Demonwasp's Memory Hierarchy seemed to be really well taken.

YESSS I'D LOVE SOME HELP!!!
If you dont mind its about the moving background. Yes I know its talked about on the web site and i tryed using the scripts provided and it would not work on my turing program i think its because of the version mines 4.1.1. I'm trying to replicate the online helicopter game for a school project.
