In Topic: Why does this work?(Class prototype?)

This is "Forward declaration"

You say that there is a class "a", and the compiler shouldn't know anything about it, because in the header you don't use the functions and variables in "a".

And yes, it's good, you include less file, so you will compile faster. If you can forward declare something, it's a good idea to do it.

 I maintain myself since i am 18.

 

You're 18.  How much experience can you truly have in answering a question about how much going to university does or does not help you in landing a job?  

 

Oh to be young and naive again....

 

I am 23. oO

I don't really understand why i got that much negative vote, while i speak from my (and from my friends) experience, so what i said is actually the truth.

 

 

 


Well, if you have zero experience it's harder to get through the HR guy, but as soon as you have experience it's doesn't really matter.

 

That's a pretty important statement you just kind of whizzed over.

 

If you have 0 experience, which EVERYONE starts out with 0 experience, then, it's hard to get through the HR door. And, the question of going to university or not is 80+% is being asked by people with 0 experience (ie, high school graduates).

 

 

That's not true, experience doesn't mean that you had a job before, you can do open source projects anytime, or you can do your own projects. That's experience. I studied at university when i got my job, and you know what? No one cared about what i learnt at university, i got my job because my spare time project. And honestly, it wasn't a big deal, it was like a 1k row (but well designed) code base c++ (sfml) tower defense game project, what wasn't even finished. And it was enough for my current bosses to choose me instead of other guys, who had much better grades at my university, but nothing to show.

 

And here i am someone, they chosed me because my experience and knowledge, not because my papers (obviously, because i don't have), here if i work on something my opinion about what i working on is actually count. That's pretty cool feeling, and i know that there is alot of job that doesn't work that way.

 

 

 

Many people looking for a job don't have the priniples to say "Heck, if that company won't even look at a resume without a degree on it, I'm not going to work there;  I'll continue to live at my parents and eat Ramen noodles every night!  I'm above that."  No...people want to get paid.

 

 

I don't exactly know why you try to attack me, that's pretty rude, and you are wrong. I maintain myself since i was 18. But if i can choose where will i work (and as a programmer obviously i can, because as a programmer you have like infinite potential workplace) i will choose what i like.

Honestly, most job don't even require degree, most company care about your knowledge and experience.

So, it's doesn't really matter, choose what you like, you will still be able to get your dream job. smile.png

 

In theory, that might be correct, but in practice, most companies will look at your resume, and, if they don't see a degree, the resume goes in the trash.

 

 

Well, if you have zero experience it's harder to get through the HR guy, but as soon as you have experience it's doesn't really matter.

 

I mean, there is alot of company who care about your papers instead of what you can give them, but i don't want to work for a company like that. It's a bad attitude, and it's really far from me.

 

For example i want to work at Riot games later on, it's a pretty huge company, and they say you need Bachelor degree OR equivalent experience. Well, getting equivalent experience is not a big deal, and it's much faster than spending 3-5 years at university... Of course if you want to get a degree do it, it's good. But it's a choice, not mandatory.

 

Alot of company write that you need Bachelor's degree just to write something... I know it for sure, because most of my friends who work in the industry have no degree and will never have (i also don't have, and i like my job as a c++ developer), but their companies write that degree is required... so i don't recommend to take that part seriously. If you are good enough for the position and that's the only missing part just ignore it.
