Where I came from
I started developing C++ at university where I had my first contact with programming languages. I always had a computer at home since MS-DOS but I never knew or asked myself about how applications run until I started the university. When I started I found it difficult to think as a computer so my efforts where more oriented to memorize routines. Totally wrong, as you may see.
I’ve always worked with C++ during my university studies but it doesn’t mean that I knew how it works or how to use it properly. In fact, the first year I didn’t learn OOP at all, it was just structural programming to learn about loops, arrays and basic data structures. The main problem: not a single explanation of why we were using it in that way. Time after that I started with OOP, some templates and finally the conjunction of OOP with GUI applications. A total disaster as you will find out.(more…)
