  1. Community college degree

    So if I went to a community college I should go for a bachelor's and not an associate's is that right?
  2. Community college degree

    Is a CS degree from community college looked at differently than say a degree from a uni?

    That's what I planned on doing for the most part, was buying a chromebook and putting linux on it for a dual boot.

    I would be able to get rid of Chrome-OS or dual boot it. The only thing that's particularly bad about the C7 is the batterly life.

    The acer C7 has a 320 GB HDD at 5400 RPMs but you can change it out I'm pretty sure.

    Well I haven't really found laptops at the 200 range besides refurbs, opened boxes, off-lease. And even then their specs aren't too much better than the Acer C7.

    Ohh, I meant developing it was cross platform. Cause you technically don't need it installed. Since there's cloud compilers. But I'm not too sure how good they work especially with libraries. Well couldn't I just use the normal gcc compiler on linux, if I install linux that is? I dont know too much about c++ compiling on linux but I believe it works this way

    Ohh well Java I'm pretty sure would be cross-platform. C++ I would be compiling for windows. There's always the choice of installing linux on the chromebook as well. Would there be any better choices? I'm looking around the <=250 range

    I would mainly be doing Java and C++, with some external libraries probably for game stuff.

    Would a chromebook be a bad option for a portable device for programming?
  11. Pointers

    Ahh okay. So i read an article about deallocation and whether or not you need to perform it. With the OS just releasing the memory when the program ends. Just wondering about this.
  12. Pointers

    So the first is changing the value at the address while the second is changing the address?
  13. Pointers

    I get them somewhat. But what is the difference really with something like this? int *pnValue = new int; *pnValue = 7; and int nValue = 5; int *pnValue = new int; pnValue = &nValue;   With the first being fine but the second isnt.
  14. Pointers

    Well i understand the basis of pointers. It's more the memory allocation for pointers that gets me.
  15. Pointers

    Anyone have a good article on pointers? I understand them somewhat, but i don't get the full gist of them.
