I guess I am just a little disillusioned when I see what 14th century armorers could do with hammers and fire, and now, with modern computing power easier to access and utilize than ever
I know there is something there, but I can't yet figure out what programming can do for me. So I ask, what has it done for you??
So I made the leap and got a C++ compiler and tried to learn the language. That's where my enthusiasm waned. The tutorials were reasonably easy to follow, but I had a hard time figuring out the applications of these parts of the language. I'm still trying to figure out why pointers are so useful.
