Fifty eight years old and teaching myself c++ while retired at home... And to be perfectly honest, I'm not even sure why...??? It makes me feel good. Is that a reason?? My brain feels squeaky clean.. Maybe that's why...??
I am not delusional and know I will never use it commercially :), but I DO plan on making my grandchildren liittle programs that will help them in school. Like maybe something that tests them in memorizing the presidents of the US in the correct order.. Things like that.
I'll just wait and see what happens with this. The main thing I have discovered about myself is that I wish more than anything that I had taught myself this 20 years ago. My husband and I got our first computer about 19 years ago and took a computer class, a hardware class, and then bought the parts and built it. We used it for five years and that is how we discovered the internet... What an experience that was!!
And now I am learning c++ at 58.. No telling what I'll be learning at 65..
