I just recently finished my CIS101 and 201 classes for C++. My instructor says i show alot of promise and i really enjoy coding. but here is my problem:
The semester is over and this next semester i won't be taking any CIS classes(need to get some general edu out of the way). I want to continue learning and developing as a software engineer, but i work best when working towards a goal. more specifically a project. I don't do well just reading through a book or writing little command line programs that no one else would ever use.
i need good ideas for a project that will help me develop. It would also be cool if it could involve 2d graphics, maybe a game. but i don't know where to begin. I am completely versed in the language but have no experience with any other libraries other than the standard stuff(iostream, fstream, cstdlib, etc.). If anyone could give me some good ideas as well as some links to what libraries to use and some good tutorials for learning them i would be greatly appreciative.
thank you all for your time,
