    If you're in high school, is it possible for you to take a CS course there?

    There's always more to learn. Pointers, dynamic memory, OOP, inheritance, multiple inheritance, templates, etc.

    Help newbies solving their problems in this forum. If you can't, well, you still have learning to do yourself.

    Oh I'll definitely not abandon this forum. You guys have helped me out so much I would feel bad not giving anything back. I am in high school but all they do is teach delphi (which is dislike). I'm working through the Deitel book on my lonesome which sometimes proves to be tedious. It's fun at times, but doing it on my own I have to make sure that I understand everything. Any words of encouragement why I would want to become more than a n00b in C++? I mean I'm in grade 12 this year and time will get tight.

    Well, companies do not hire newbies. Do you think anyone wants to pay even a dime for any of your programs that you've developed? That's fine if you just want to be a full time cboard.cprogramming moderator.
