I'm Secretpickle. New to the forum. I read the rules and I think this post doesn't break the rules but I come from forums that flame like crazy, and I don't want that. I also searched a little bit but I'm not 100% sure what to search for.
My situation is this. I've tinkered with computers all my life and I've taken several C/C++ classes at the community college. All I know now is basic C/C++ programming and nothing too advanced. I learn best by doing assignments and solving problems, hands on. I want to join an Open source project but I don't feel like I'm competent enough to do so.
Because my major is Mechanical Engineering I will not be taking anymore C/C++ classes. I've taken
C for Programmers
C++ Object Oriented Programming
C for Engineers
and I've gotten A's in all of them. Did all the assignments no problem but I still don't feel that prepared to embark on any big projects. I learned PHP/MySQL from USING it. I learned about engines and cars from building race motors and working on cars.
So my request is if anyone can assign me some homework? Something that you think would be suitable but not impossible. Or do you think I could get into an open source project?
