Socoder -> Off Topic -> Hey everyone!

Just thought I'd make a post and say hi to everyone! I'm glad that someone was sensible enough to start up something after CodersWorkshop! I hope this site will keep staying for a while and that I'll be able to learn some stuff here while also teaching stuff to others.

Thanks,

Afr0

Thanks everyone! Appreciate it!

@Instinct: Great to see familiar faces, definately!
As for the MMO, the original 'target', as it were, has been changing shape and form quite drastically after my ex left me (if you've been hanging out at #blitzcoder on IRC, you might have heard about it, unfortunately), so what I'm working on on and off right now is a remake of The Sims Online (tsodeamon.xblz.net). Apart from that, I'm also partially involved in a very good WoW Server Emu project called WCell, but due to the legal complications, I'm not going to link to it's boards.

Sad to hear about your ex, I wish you all the best, remember we're all pulling for you! Those projects sound exciting, I look forward to seeing some demos!

Thanks again everyone!

@Instinct: Thanks for kind words, I'll make sure to post some demos and/or pics at the first opportunity.

@Nolan: Hey dude, how's it hanging?

Thanks teasy!

@ Nolan and hyruleknight: My personal life is doing fuck-all (for lack of (a) better wording/sentence construct), but my programming life is actually doing relatively good. Moving away for a year soon to take programming lessons (hopefully I'll have learned C++ by the time I get back home), and still unsure what to do after that point. If it interests anyone, I have this dream of creating a gamestudio sometime in the future, that I have all intentions of following up.

afr0 C++ is fairly easy except for pointers. they are a pain at first but once you understand how to use them it gets easy

I'm pretty sure he's talking about more than the syntax and the basic features of the language, Hyrule. Afr0 is an experienced coder and understand pointers fairly well, I assume. There's a lot more to C++ than you might think.

Yep, Nolan is all too right.

Amongst the things I can recall off the top of my head are:

- Templates.
- Overloaded operators (I have a slight grasp of these from C#, but need to gain more confidence and insight into general use of appliance).
- Multiple class hierarchies (I.E a class with more than one base class, which in turn can be a base class for yet another class with multiple parents).
- The STD Library (I'd say this is where 90% of learning modern C++ comes into play, as you don't want to end up rewriting functions all the time).
- Etc, etc.

well pointers where the only thing that really knocked me for a loop when learning C++. could just be how i think.

since when i was using blitz i could understand types perfectly fine but arrays confused me. i'm just weird

Plus there is more to it then that. Responsibility driven design, loosely coupled classes and abstraction are key themes on object-oriented programming courses. Learning the syntax and language features is the easy bit.
