I think about writing a C++ tutorial from time to time, but the problem is: do I write a general C++ tutorial or one aimed at the Pokitto?
I struggle to write tutorials because they tend to be a linear progression of ideas, and I think of C++ in a farily non-linear way.
I’m better at answering specific questions or explaining specific concepts than writing about all the concepts in a meaningful order.
(I’ve considered writing a blog before, but never got round to figuring out how I’d set that up.)
As much as I’d love to be paid to write a book, I doubt it would be very popular outside of these small forum groups.
“Written by Pharap, professional experience: none whatsoever, doesn’t have a degree” isn’t going to look very impressive compared to the books written by people who have worked for companies like EA and Google for 10+ years.
True, but I post so often and create such big text walls that it would take a long time to find it all by digging through my posts.
Thankfully on the Pokitto forums most of it is contained in The C++ Language category.
