#5006103 Looking for a study partner at C++, SDL and OpenGL.

Posted by Ultimoore on 01 December 2012 - 03:47 PM

Its a shame more people dont do stuff like this. People are often told they would commit more to exercise if they worked out with a friend, I would assume the same rule could be applied here XD

I think one of things this site lacks is a chat where programmers (not necessarily beginners) could comment on their learning achievements and talk of pet projects etc, I briefly check the GD IRC chat from time to time but it seems this sort of chat would be unsuitable there

Hey, I'd be up for this! I'm running Ubuntu 12.10, I know C++ (the basics, I haven't explored the advanced C++11 features yet), and this would be a great way for me to get into low-level SDL and OpenGL.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I use PyGame at the moment, which gives me an incentive to learn the underlying SDL.

This has me very excited. I didn't think I would get a response like this. So for every ones know I want everyone to add me on Google talk at Ultimoore@gmail.com and well get to know each other . Thefirst day is Monday DEC 3 730pm east time zone. Ill hand out the PDF's well read together and I want us all to ask each other questions.

Hi, First time coming to this site. I heard on a few forums this is the place to come to for help. I don't want to waste anyones time, but as the topic suggests I am looking for someone to learn C++ , SDL and eventually OpenGL with me. I am a twin so I am always used to working in a team.

Means of contact: I would much rather talk on google talk as I have found it more reliable than Skype. I am always online after 730pm eastern time zone. I am not to worried about weekends because everyone needs time to relax.

Advisory: As I am a member of the Canadian Forces Ill give you heads up when I will not be online.

final point I am running Ubuntu 12.04 I would like to study with someone also using linux or at least dual booting between linux and something else. But I am fairly easy going. I also was given alot of books from a game design course and again I really need a FTP (Fire Team Partner) to study with. I am very committed to this and I am excited to study and make new friends here.

Thanks for your time Guys and Gals.
