Well, as I said in my previous entry, I already downloaded the necessary programs to start learning/practicing code.
I had decided on C, but I changed my mind to C++, then Java, but I already learned Java in school. From what I’ve read, C++ is much more useful than C, so I’m learning this one.
Today, I learned how to use MS Visual C++ command prompt to open, compile, run (etc.) C++ programs. I also mastered 5 1/2 chapters of an excellent online tutorial I found. The sixth one is about Pointers and my brain is having trouble grasping the concept at 2 am, so I will reread it tomorrow.
All in all, I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot and that I am definitely on my way to programming now! I actually can’t wait to go back to school in the fall and take more computer science courses.
