I noticed your retweet of this yesterday. No disks though!? I might check some magazines for sourcecode. Would anyone have any tips on where to find some nice code?

I've been trying to come up with an answer for this, but most of the magazines I did type-ins from pretty much assumed you already knew WTF you were doing, and gave you double-page spreads of mostly Data statements!!

Alongside that are the early issues that teach you stuff like "How to print your name" and other such mystical magical computery things.
I'm not sure there are many "concept" tutorials, that teach methods and such.

Like that Dungeon Map generator you posted earlier today. I can't think of any of the magazines I read as a kid that would've actually done anything like that. It was either basic BASIC or finished games/tools/playthings.
Maybe I was reading the wrong thing, but I just can't think of a good "method" set of tutorials. *shrugs*

Some of the magazines have companion disks, though you might have to dig through the archive a bit to find them. For example, here are the companion disks for Compute! Gazette
Also, I prefer to use this link for the magazine archive. Same archive, but the magazines are categorize making finding what you want easier.
