Installing and using Visual Studio Code and g++ (plus other tools) for (re)learning programming (and some entertainment purposes) - Part 1 - Windows 10
Recently (actually not so recent...) I wanted to refresh my programming (and logical) skills. So I thought to try some available tools. I was not looking for professional tools, but for something - such an IDE - easy to use, ideally with a lot of help included. (still longing for something like the almost forgotten Turbo C and Turbo Pascal.)
I tried (and still using somewhat) CodeBlocks (http://www.codeblocks.org/ - works on Linux, Windows, MacOS). For educational purposes it is very simple to setup, one have to just download and install the version that contains the mingw tools. More details on their site. It is also easy to use, almost straightforward. Nonetheless, it can also deal with bigger projects.
