On Monday we'll get started with our next project, to create a terminal-based application with which we can download files off the internet. Like with our Hello, World! project, each step will be fully documented on the Wiki, Issues and discussed here in the group.
We'll attempt to keep the repository open to everyone who is part of the GitHub organisation, which means you are free to clone and push any changes that you make, so long as you properly document and discuss each change here, in the Wiki or in Issues.
If you aren't yet part of the GitHub organisation, let me know here and I'll get you set up. You are required to have basic knowledge of Git in order to get accepted, as you will be granted enough power to potentially break the repository for us all.
With great GitHub permissions, comes great responsibility! :D
I recently came across Handmade Hero (thanks to @csaez!) and just the other day ventured into the dedicated forum.
It has thus far been the most mature and captivating source of discussion I've encountered; many topics cover interesting areas of real-time/high-performance programming using C/C++ at the most low-level there is and feature some very mature discussions (i.e. balanced opinions) by some - seemingly - seasoned programmers.
To name a few,
In a nutshell, everything is talked about as though it were made from scratch - it's a refreshing take when much of new material today is about re-using, assembling and configuring API's of which you know little about; e.g. web components, pre-packaged game engines.
Haven't quite confirmed it yet, but I think that by using someones name, such as @Byron He/She will get a different kind of notification via email, which might mean that by using @/all then everyone should be getting the same notification.
Used sparingly, I think it's well suited for Screencast updates. So, this is for you @/all! Prepare your weekend for character strings and compilation with multiple files! :)
