    Project ideas

    Hello,

    I have been learning C++ and I am passed the stage of a complete beginner. And now want to put my new found knowledge to the test by developing a project in C++. However, I need some good ideas of any C++ projects that are used out there in the real world.

    If anyone has any ideas of what will make a good project that could be usefull.

    Many thanks for your ideas,

    Steve

    Plenty here - http://sourceforge.net/
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Hello,

    Why not think of something you think would be useful for you on the computer, and then write a program to do it.

    For instance, if you think it would be really nice to have program that would email you baseball scores after every inning, then write a program to do that.


    Hope this helps!

    Sometiems jsut thinking of something you could use is helpful. Even if it's not a specialized case and you could easily just go download a program to do it, it can be quite a learning experience trying to build something for use.
    What is C++?

    Typing "programming contest" into your search engine will show many sites with many example problems to solve. Some of these are quite tough.
