Just finished writing my Text Processing utility, and realised that whilst project have made me a bit more comfortable in writing c++ code and redesigning your software as you go along.
The most important realisation was how source control makes you more comfortable in editing your own code and refactoring it to be much more efficient or flexible, you are no longer afraid, that you are going to mess up something - as if you do, you can always:
- Look what changes you've made since the last commit.
- Or just revert to earlier version of your code.
Overal I think the final project was very good oportunity to put the learning into practice and develop something useful and exciting.
p.s. It would be useful for RedGloo to have a spellchecker ;)
