And so this is my first blog, ever. What does this mean, well blogging is one thing that I will be gaining experience from over the course of this semester. And hopefully a few other things as well, I have never worked with debuggers, which are definitely something I would like to learn. I could also use the practice to comment more. I'm pretty awful on commenting as much as I should.
There are things that I think I will do better in, I have taken a C++ course before at Northern Michigan University. Granted we're talking about 3 years ago, so I don't remember a whole lot, although I think it'll be enough to really help in 3081. At least enough to remember the basics of the language. I don't remember much on what we did, but I do remember somethings covered such as garbage collectors and of course, pointers.
Who could ever forget the pain of pointers. No really, I wish I could forget that pain of pointers, or perhaps just remember pointers. I may want to recant the idea that I know a bit about C++, remembering pointers made me think I don't know the language at all.
I think my learning in this class will be a lot more getting back into a programming mode. It's been at least a year and a half since I had done any real programming, And this semester is where I get back into it.
I am looking forward to a lot that's going to be thrown at me over the semester. Hopefully a lot of things that will stick with me once out of school and even if it doesn't, at least there will be some sense of accomplishment in programming yet again.
