Just a quick note. I'm working on translating the previous 10 months worth of learning Python into a functional understanding of C++. (I made a repo just to share the stuff I work on to practice it - maybe I'll refactor some of my favorite Python projects?)
C++ is great, I love the feeling of power I get playing with it - like, I realized that as I learn more of this, I could actually go and fix my Linux open source video driver myself, and cool stuff like that. That'd be pretty sweet.
That said, the point of this post is... I started working on pointers last night, and I gotta say, it's irrationally exciting to make the computer tell me what memory address it stored a variable in. This is gonna be fun!
