Steps before Developer ? - RandSergeant - 11-02-2013 08:00 AM

I am currently interested in contributing the PPSSPP's build ( or development ) for iOS

but what should i learn first ?
pardon my rudeness but i've just started to learn about HTML and C++ , i know it'll take time but i'll try my best

can anyone experienced tell me what is my first step, and what to do next ?

you can have a look at an old thread,buddy...
btw,what resources are u using?


RE: Steps before Developer ? - RandSergeant - 11-03-2013 02:27 AM

thanks for the thread link, i was kinda blurry from looking for compatible games for iOS
i have absolutely zero knowledge as of now, so i don't know what do you meant by resource :x

Edit :
for experienced people, i want to ask you guys this :

C first
or C++ first
or C# first ( i doubt i should learn this first )
or Python first

from what i found, some people recommended learn C first ( for basic base and understanding of how it would work )
while some recommended Python, cause it's easier to learn
and lastly, some recommended straight for C++ because they suggested that C is subset of C++ ( in other words, C and C++ are pretty much the same, except C++ has some " extension "(?) ) and because C++ is more powerful that others

one of our devs recommend that python is perfect for beginners as its easy to catch the logic,and move onto C afterwards.
As for 'resources',i meant what things are u using for learning?(i.e. Books,pdf docs,video tuts,interactive online tuts and so on...)


RE: Steps before Developer ? - RandSergeant - 11-03-2013 11:31 AM

i see, so it'd be Python -> C -> C++ -> C# ?

the current source is use is W3Schools ( due to me seeing some " post removed " because of sharing link, i'll give the name instead )
but that's only for HTML, PHP and Java ( and so forth )
guess i'll need to find a new source :x

edit : i found a link for learning Python online, just Google search it ( lol )


RE: Steps before Developer ? - arg274 - 11-03-2013 12:20 PM

any place to learn C online?im also a n00b.and yeah,i learn python at codecademy,quite a fun thing to do...

btw,codecademy has a HTML,Java,Ruby,Perl and PHP portal too...will learn them later...and remember,its 'Codecademy' not 'Codeacademy'!people often do that typo mistake...


RE: Steps before Developer ? - RandSergeant - 11-03-2013 12:28 PM

I uses learnpython.org for Python
and found learn-c.org for C

what i liked about these 2 are they provide you example, exercise and the i-don't-know-what-it's-called thing for us to try out the codes

thanks for this one,i've been looking all around...Big Grin

No problem
by the way, PPSSPP = C++ ? ( or so i heard/saw )


RE: Steps before Developer ? - arg274 - 11-04-2013 06:37 AM

PPSSPP = C++ 86.8%,C 7.7%,TypeScript 4.1%,Objective-C 1.1%
yeah,mostly C++

... okay ;w; ( flashing back on how i was stuck at Basic Operator yesterday )


RE: Steps before Developer ? - cloud1250000 - 11-05-2013 01:34 AM

and to do the core (interpreter,dynarec) of an emulator, you need to learn some low level language like assembly

also c# is much easier to learn then c or c++ Smile


RE: Steps before Developer ? - RandSergeant - 11-05-2013 04:49 AM

How would you rate the difficulty of C, C++ and C# , lol


RE: Steps before Developer ? - cloud1250000 - 11-05-2013 04:58 AM

c# -> c -> c++

but well, c++ got some better shit so I'd skip learning plain c... I mean, c++ is c with amelioration...

so

c# -> c++

i wish i could learn MIPS-Disasm from an interactive site...are there any?
