Making a Simple Application
My school project to learn basic coding and create a simple application.
Originally, my plan was to make comething more complex than a simple application; however, as previously stated, my knowledge of C++ is far more lacking than I had previously anticipated. Thus, I decided to dedicate a majority of my project to learning the language and making a unit converter. Other problems I have faced, have come from actually learning C++; though I go into more detail on that in the next step.
Learning C++ has been a really enjoyable thus far. As I personally really enjoy writing, it reminds me a lot of grammar and how certain punctuations are need for the reader, or in the case of C++, the program to actually understand what you're writing. Of course, math is also interspersed throughout coding; however, the mechanics of coding itself have been rather easy for me. The true trouble comes from multiple issues, my relience on other sources for C++ statements, and the time constraints of school and class time that make memorizing and learning these statements difficult. Though, very little else has been particularly troubling, at least that I didn't mention in the "Problems Thus Far" step.
