    Some Ideas

    Any ideas for a simple program, possibly including some simple classes?

    I like writing things that actually accomplish tasks rather than just show that you can use certain pregramming techniques.

    write a program that will catalog all your cds and movies, then randomly select one so that you can play it.

    You should also be able to sort that catalog by name, genre, and release year as well as add to and remove from the catalog.

    try writing the program in a modular way. Write the core functionality as a library, then try exposing different interfaces to it. The two obvious ones are command line (easiest) and GUI (try to use a cross platform toolkit like wxwidgets), but if you're feeling adventurous you could also try creating it as a client-server app that you can access remotely or expose a scripting interface via boost.python.

    Think about the component interface you want to expose.

    If you program in C++, you need Boost. You should also know how to use the Standard Library (STL). Want to make games? After reading this, I don't like WxWidgets anymore. Want to add some scripting to your App?
