I’m relatively new to programming and I’m trying to learn C++ as my main language. The course has been great so far in ‘translating programming lingo into human’, if you know what I mean, but during the introduction to memory and references in this lecture and the one before it I began feeling completely lost. I believe that this may be highly discouraging for some people, especially those without any experience in programming.
I’d recommend putting one or two lectures that go more in depth in the topic and perhaps provide easier examples. I would feel much better prepared if we could take a break from writing code and take some time to learn some theory, just like in a class in school.
I’ll try to find some stuff on my own, but fingers crossed I hope I won’t get lost in the lectures to come. If you could recommend me (and probably other students that are also in my place) some other resources that could make grasping those topics easier, it would be great.
Have a good day, everyone.
