Im taking introduction to programming RN but all we do during most of the school years is making code with math problems... I feel like im not learning shit.
Now we are just learning how to use a code to open up a text file using ofstream ifstream and openFile.()
are these even useful ?
If you really want to learn how to code, try https://www.codecademy.com/ , I used this when I was 12 and now I'm 19. This taught me how to use HTML and Java. Take your time and try to understand everything. good luck
Haha, well it's the foundations so it will help you in the future, but you definitely won't learn how to code hacks or whatever you're interested in at school ;p. Having the exact same problem that's why I'm trying to learn something as well by myself at home

Personally, with learning to code, its sort of like building a pyramid. You lay the foundation down first and build ontop of it. So you are currently learning the basics to it, I love to advance ahead of my class on my own personal time, So try googling how to make a certain script or using a specific syntax you don't know. You will probably think what you are learning is useless now but later on you will find it comes in handy in certain cases, take it step by step , google is your friend!

I always learned the best when I actually tried making something my self by putting time into it. Think of a simple computer program, like a calculator, and try to create it yourself. You will fail, but that's part of the process. Just remember that pros are pros because they have failed more than noobs have tried.
