So, some of you came back… • Given that you’re still here, let’s look at the tools of the trade • Resources to use to get you up and running
Today • Software • Visual Studio • Virtual PC • SVN • Places • MSDN • Google
Virtual PC • Actually, a pretty cool tool • Allows us to create a completely virtual machine • The good thing about a virtual machine is that you can trash it until your little hearts are content!
Visual Studio • Really is a very powerful tool • I’m currently using 2013, but you should be able to do most of this in 2012… however, why use the old version of the program? I’ll need submissions in 2013 format. • Basically, I’m going to give you a quick VS2013 driving lesson now
SVN – Version Control • I personally use Tortoise • Let’s take a quick look…
Steps • Create a Project • Build your project • Fix build errors • Debug your project • Release (?) your project
Looking for Information • msdn.microsoft.com – this is a KEY site for you! • Google – used judiciously, this will help you tremendously • Course web site
Next Week • A quick refresher for C++ • Pointers & Classes • Assignment 1 • Something to do before then • Make sure you have a computer with access to Visual Studio and Virtual PC. If there’s a problem, this is the week to solve it.
