Hey guys, I'm finishing high school and considering two variants: Lane Community College or Brooklyn College. Lane Community College has Beginning C++ Programming for Games course and I know that they use CodeBlocks. Is CodeBlocks good enough for a start in game development?

Hi,

yes, CodeBlocks is more than good enough for a start in game development. Good luck and have fun with it!

I would say Mac OS is the worst of the three by a long shoot.

Windows and Linux is very close; but, most of the Devs seem to be Linux so it might be the better choice.

Well, in C++'s case warning flags and other compiler settings are something you want to know, but wasn't IDE invented to get away with the whole build process in the first place? It is after all the biggest difference compared to a plain text editor and more "traditional" build process.

It is a poor workman whose does not understand their tools.

There are many people who think you should learn how to use the compiler on the command line before first using an IDE.

I think you need to at least know how to understand the build log in the CB IDE.

If you do not understand the difference between an warning and a error you need to learn it!

If you do not understand the difference between compiling and linking you need to learn it.
