Started learning C++ today. Hoping to get my hands on a cheap used copy of Lippman's C++ Primer. Screen fatigue. Let me know if you have any other introductory book recommendations on the topic.


@jcmorrow Partly interested in creating my own audio production tools and instruments. Only have experience with JS so far but not really interested in Electron right now and don't want to be stuck in the browser either.

And partly to try something new and challenging. I haven't done much structured learning in the past couple of months and need a new topic to help fill some hours of the day.

@luxpris That's awesome! I did a similar exploration of rust last year and found that low level audio stuff was *hard*.

@luxpris I was also thinking of making my own VST stuff, but not sure how to get started 🤔

@jcmorrow @luxpris if y’all find any good reads on this send it my way.

@jcmorrow Yes! Making a VST is definitely on my bucket list. I'm planning to go the JUCE route once I become a bit more proficient in the language. I see you've recently tooted about it.

@luxpris Despite what the majority audio programming world will tell you, you don't have to use C++. Good ol' C is plenty good for most things.

@paul @jcmorrow thanks for the tip! Glad I stumbled upon your toot on @jcmorrow's feed. Helpful info.

@paul @luxpris @jcmorrow or anything decently fast with C bindings

I believe there's one that rhymes with "sawdust"
