After the great success of the Hello, World! project, in which we've managed to fully document and understand every corner of getting up to speed with C in terms of choosing a compiler and text editor on major platforms, time has now come to produce a first user-facing interface in the form of a console-based download application.
We'll then distribute this application as though it was the greatest thing ever (which it will be, obviously) with it's own dedicated website and automate as much of the bundling and packaging as we can for it to align with major platforms like Windows, OSX and Linux; including documentation, an installer and splash-image.
Once we've covered writing a user interface and distributed it to our target audience, we'll be fully equipped to make a living selling our great software to end-users across the globe. All we need from there on out is skill. Simple. :)
2 weeks in and we are now 56 enthusiasts interested in the art of C, 3 screencasts recorded by Sebastian Thiel a.k.a. Byron on the basics of C, available on YouTube with more coming up on live streams via Twitch.
Have a look at the project-goals in it's repository, and if you have any questions, head on back here and talk about it. :)
Let's nail this thing.
free(p1);twice, does it matter or the compiler is smart enough to do the right thing?
