Taking the Leap
Posted on February 01, 2013 at 11:06
Alright guys, I'm taking the plunge and attempting to start making games through means other than GM. I've been programming in Java for the past 3 years or so, but what I'd like to do is officially add C++ to my repertoire while tackling game development at the same time. I've dabbled with it in the past, but never enough to consider myself proficient. Now that I'm older and (arguably) wiser, I'm just gonna hit it head on. Probably gonna use the [url='http://projecteuler.net]Euler Project[/url] to get some quick experience just writing code.
Now the real point of this blog is to ask you guys your opinions.
What IDE should I be using?
Right now I'm between VS 2012 and Code::Blocks (have both of them installed), but I'm up for any other suggestions as well. I've been using Notepad++ along with the cmd to write all my Java programs, but I'd rather just move over to an actual IDE.
Also, I'm taking a Cyber Security class this semester. It's quite entertaining so far. We've been making various brute force attacks :3
