Who here is knowledgeable with C++?
  • GachiGachi May 2013
    I have been reading through two C++ books (still in the beginning), and am looking for those familiar with C++ who can lend a helping hand when it comes to questions I may have while I teach myself C++, as well as looking at code to offer insight. Preferably through AIM or email. Only volunteer if it won't take you days to answer a question.

    I haven't programmed c++ since college, but I've coded in a lot of c-based languages, so feel free to ping me whenever.

    Out of curiosity, are you learning c++ in anticipation of pursuing a degree? If you're mostly interested in getting into programming professionally, there are better options out there for learning to build practical software quickly.

    I'm in pretty much the same boat as Court. I haven't done C++ in a while, but I've used a little C# recently, so you can message me if you have any questions.

    Well, I'm teaching myself c++ to be able to get into a programming job later, however, at some point ill be attending a school so having a leg up is going to be helpful.

    Last time I wrote any C++ was about 4 years ago. A little rusty, but what you are most likely dealing with initially I am sure any one of us would be able to help with.

    I could answer probably any question you have in the introduction part of you book lol.

    I agree with Court though , unless you have a specific goal that c++ fits best to use as a tool there are more friendly languages to learn.

    Tis what I hear anyway.

    Court, what other options are you referring to? Python, Java?
  • ErlingErling June 2013
    Depends on what you're doing Gachi, I suppose.

    PHP, Ruby, or Python. You could teach yourself to build entire functional applications using something like Symfony2 in PHP, Ruby on Rails, or Django in Python without the underlying disciplines that you'll require for any serious c++ development. You also have tons of options for serving up the applications you build, and you'll be doing so over the web, so no distribution is required.
