Any fellow C++ programmers out there?

I'm not a C ++ programmer - but I did take a course in college. Nonetheless, my grade was higher in other programming courses - I think. I think C ++ was one I did mediocre in.

Ooo how was the course? Did you find it interesting?
I like all programming courses. Anyway, I can't remember much about this one - except it was the most difficult. I believe the other ones were C Sharp and Visual Basic (This was around 2007 I think.).

Same here tbh! It's neat turning lines of code into something like an app, or a game. I can definitely agree it's a bit difficult lol. I'm trying to learn C Sharp too!

I've done some old school C. It's fun, but my productivity is better in more modern languages. Too much time dealing with random seg faults and figuring out how to do some thing that would be super simple in any other language.

I really want to learn it so bad. I recently purchased all kinds of books the past few years and haven't dug into them yet. This is on my todo list once I get better with PHP. Should be fun to learn.

Oo neat, C++, C# etc are modern languages of C, correct?

I can't wait for my PHP book to come in! :geek:

I'm not a C++ Programmer(Not yet, anyway). I'm currently Self-Teaching myself C at the moment(I've did the same for Java, Python and HTML). I actually quite like C even though it's an old Language. It still holds up well.

I'm kind of interested in learning C++ seeing as every Company is favouring it for C. But it does look like a really complex Language so it's kind of turning me off a bit.

I wouldn't call myself a C++ programmer either but with more practice and self-teaching I'll get there. It's defiantly very complex but you'll get it, never give up, you'll get the hang of things very quickly! Hopefully, CodeForum can help ease the stress of learning a new language or as in this case C++!

Yeah, I'm still not a C++ Programmer. I am still teaching myself C at the moment still. And now, I've literally fallen in love with C. I am thinking of learning a bit of C++ but what's stopping me is how bloated it is, how Code can become messy and that I also may end up writing messy Code(And when it comes to messy Code, that's when I lose it). Again, I'm still considering whether I should learn C++ and if it is a good Language to learn in the long run.

But for now, C and Java(Maybe Python but I'm not really a huge fan of it) are my main Languages.

Hahaha neither am I yet. But hopefully when busy season passes I'll get more time for C++! Remember to try to organize your code with comments and such.

Well, who knows. We can be C++ Partners-In-Crime.

I wish you the best of luck with that. C++ by the looks of it, doesn't look like an easy Language to learn. There's a lot of Features and then there is the Syntax of it. Then you have to memorize all of it. Again, best of luck.

Oh, I know that. Who doesn't use Comments and try to Format their Code to make it readable(Only professionals like us do that. The amateurs are well.....Amateurs).

It is very complicated but the best resource we have is our lovely search engine! It’s not wrong to use google or other search engines for help :)
