    Just welcoming myself to nerdome. I'll probably find myself in this forum more and more as the years go on...


    Or I'll drop computer science altogether and youll never see me again :squint:

    Anyways, hey guys :wavey:

    I hope some of you guys can help me with little programming problems when they come up :) This semester I'm just learning programming in C++ :)

    Hello World does not count as functional :squint:











    Just kidding :joshers:

    BTW, Comp Sci labs > *. One mark out of two for showing up, the other mark for writing the program and showing that it works. And I'm two weeks ahead :bigthumb:

    I need to brush up on C++. After taking two classes on it I rarely ever used it so all the info moved to the back of my brain somewhere.

    How much math is involved?

    Tons of math. I'm in honors comp sci and I'm basically taking all the same courses honors math students take.

    Actually, its just a simple program that calculates compound interest.

    I just had to make a scrolling sign (think Times Square in NYC, or Goodyear Blimp) using 3 classes. This project would be so much easier to write as a top-down procedural prog, but they really want to hammer on encapsulation and reusability. And my instructor wrote the textbook most of the college uses (but not in this class), so she's kind of a hardass. :rofl:

    It's pretty rewarding to see "0 errors, 0 warnings" on compile, though. But for the record, I don't like MS VC++. I'm getting used to it, and I can see how it could be useful for big projects, but I really prefer gcc. :hs:
