Cool, I just started really learning C++ a few days ago, too! I finally made the start of a Mandelbrot set explorer yesterday :)

I basically just used Google to look up how to do things. If I know what the code is supposed to do, then I can usually figure out what each part of the code is doing and that is how I am learning new things. My code is pretty ugly, but I am hoping it will get better as I get more experience XD

Here is a video : https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4HNIXQZLWM8ZzJUV2NFa3V1LU0/edit?usp=sharing

It makes me really strain my brain to learn this stuff, but it is rewarding!

EDIT: It is so much more of a pain to set up than TI-BASIC x.x

Yay, Xeda!  Something other than calculator programming?  [I remember from TI|BD]  Good for you!   :thumbsup:  C++ is very similar to TI-BASIC.  In fact, other than a few changes in syntax, C++ (particularly iostream) is quite similar.

Silent, silent

This is my final fit
My final bellyache

With no alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises please

Such a pretty house
And such a pretty garden

No alarms and no surprises

Indeed, C++ has fewer, and different, abstractions than TI-BASIC has. They tackle different use cases and learning curves.

Xeda, if you want some really great C++ tutorials, subscribe to "skeshatter" on Youtube or check out www.beginnerscpp.com.

(BTW: I am giving Zeda tutorial links?  This is strange...  XD)

they're definitely different, but i'd say that it abstracts to a far greater degree than any form of BASIC. what comparison is there to be made to a language with function and class templates?

also, if we're handing out tutorial links, i'd point to this XD.

I always liked mandelbrots because of how it can zoom in infinitively.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
