What’s going on?

I haven’t posted to this since the lockdown began. I thought I would have more time to do the things I liked but sadly it didn’t turn out that way. I have been learning a bit of C++ by doing a course that I’ve almost completed. Some people suggested that C++ is a bit outdated because there are other more dumbed down programming languages that can be used for more rapid application developement. I disagree with that, because c++ is closer to the metal and covers more types of hardware due to it being abled to compile direct into machine code. A lot of big applications still use C++

I do plan to go back to my C# learning at some stage because I think it’s important to know some rapid app development languages too, but I also want to really advance my database skills by the end of the year.

It has been a weird spring, but I’m still determined to improve my coding abilities.


Netpanzer Attempt 1

Porting HoverRace over to VS2019 was quite difficult. Porting Netpanzer over has been even harder. Compiling on Linux is really easy, but I’d really like to maintain a Windows build. One if the the tricky things about C++ is that there are so many different pre-build tools used to script the compilation process.
