    I made a blog, comments and critiques welcome!

    Hey guys, I made a blog so I could share my code with people easier (in IRC for example) and sort of keep a record of my progress for myself.

    I just started it today, but anyone's welcome to have a look and let me know what you think. I have taken a coding break, and you'll notice I haven't done much since my tile-generation engine thing, but I've been messing with shaders and GLSL and it's about time to get back to some serious c++.

    It's more a code repository at the moment, so what I'm curious about is comments on for example my choice to use wordpress + dropbox as solutions to blog and hosting.

    Also, beyond aesthetics, is this simply lame? I don't know a lot of coders who do this sort of thing, for fear they're work will be stolen or something - but... really, if you have to steal my code... well - you have my blessing. It's free, free, free. Learn, live and be a better coder tomorrow.

    - Matt

    Moved to GD. I almost closed this since it was not only on the wrong forum but essentially an advertisement for a blog site.

    Sorry VA, lemme add salvage the thread with some valuable resources:

    SFML 2.0 RC just finished by Laurent Gromila: SFML 2.0 RC
    Excellent online book on modern OpenGL shading: Learning Modern 3D Graphics Programming
    And excellent wiki book on Gang of Four Programming Patterns: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/C%2B%2...esign_Patterns

    Notes:

    * The Wiki Book can be converted to and downloaded as a PDF and prints nicely at about 50 pages. (Simply clicking "download as PDF" on the left-hand menu led to a hung java script for me, but I simply waited a minute or so, then hit refresh, and poof, the download link was ready.
    * McKenneson's book is terse, but digestible and the narrow margin version prints out at about 450 pages. Very solid GLSL instructions!
    * Laurent Gromila hasn't yet finished the tutorials for 2.0, and it DOES break backward compatibility with 1.6, so beginners may want to stick with 1.6 for now.

    Again, I apologize. I never meant it as an ad, I was just proud of my coding blog. You can delete it and I won't have any hard feelings. Thank you.
