I’m teaching C++ this semester, for CSCI 103 at the University of Southern California. The students are great! However, the transition to this language is challenging. I am trying to build some tools to work around the language, with mixed success. As always, StackOverflow is very helpful, as is the DeathHandler tool on GitHub.
With C++ there are so many opportunities for a student to shoot themselves in the foot. But even with these tools it feels like trying to get them better shoes rather than getting rid of the gun.
