- André T7 days agoOverall this is a good course, I had fun completing it and it was a good learning experience but I also felt like it lacks in some points. For example, in my opinion there was not enough dedicated to built-in functions, there were some mentions but to my knowledge, nothing regarding number rounding, data type conversion or string manipulation. I also found strange that multi-dimensional arrays or vectors were not mention. Knowing that the course is advertised as "beginner friendly" I fell like tools like the ones mentioned before are more important than things like inline functions or function overloading. And finally, regarding the last article of "Memory allocation" in the last chapter, I felt this one lacking, I don't know if there is a continuation of this topic in the intermediate course but in my opinion it should at least reference a bit of documentation or a discussion thread for example.
