> How to write English (non-native language)

I suggest writing a blog in English. Practice is probably the best way to learn. There is also http://english.stackexchange.com if you have specific questions.

> Program well in c in userspare (Currently reading 'The Linux Programming Interface')

In my experience, reading other people's code is the best way to get better at a language. I don't have much experience with C but I guess there are a few projects that would be interesting to read here: https://github.com/search?o=desc&q=language%3A%22c%22&ref=si...

> Embedded development (I don't even know where to start that one...)

I am currently learning embedded development (maybe we could help each other?).

For those who don't know, this is Rob Pike's chapter of Beautiful Code, a thoroughly enjoyable book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beautiful-Code-Leading-Programmers-P... . Every now and then I read a different chapter, and it's always interesting. I particularly liked Rob Pike's one, and the one about Python's dictionary implementation.

I believe one of the examples they gave in C was the diff algorithm from Subversion.

Chapter 28 in Beautiful Code (http://www.amazon.com/Beautiful-Code-Leading-Programmers-Pra...) talks about delta debugging, how it was invented and developed. its really a great chapter in a great book. i can't recommend it enough.

I've heard this book was good http://www.amazon.com/Beautiful-Code-Leading-Programmers-Pra.... It asks 30 different developers for pieces of beautiful code. I read an excerpt or two back when it was released and put it on my to read list. Unfortunately haven't gotten to it yet, but still plan too.
