Getting Familiar With Arrays And Vectors In C++

When it comes to the fundamentals of computer programming, arrays will almost always make an appearance. Being able to store a collection of values could be beneficial to a near endless amount of use-cases.

To continue the back to the basics programming series, in this tutorial we’ll explore standard arrays as well vectors which are a much more powerful alternative when it comes to C++.

Configure Visual Studio Code For C++ Development

I mentioned a few months ago that I was going to periodically go back to the basics when it comes to computer programming and application development. Building a Hello World Example C++ Application was a first example of what I was talking about. However, in this previous example, much of our work was done in a basic text editor, then compiled and ran with a Command Prompt or Terminal. It works, but it isn’t the most elegant.

In this tutorial we’re going to see how to configure a more modern IDE for C++ development. Visual Studio Code (VSC) actually has really nice support for C++, so we’re going to see how to configure it.

Building A Hello World Example C++ Application

I decided to take some time every month to go back to the basics when it comes to development. As you might know, I earned a Computer Science degree from the University of California, Merced, and most of the courses I took involved C++ development. While some of the more modern code schools teach JavaScript, the common university will continue to teach C++ for the foreseeable future.

Getting started with something like C++ can seem like a daunting task, especially since C++ is such a powerful development language. We’re going to see how to write, compile, and run a simple C++ application to help you get started with one of the more seasoned development options.
