Me: Alright, lets hammer out some Udemy courses...

*Opens course*

Instructer: So we are going to go ahead and download Code::Blocks

Me: *Audible sigh*

    oh... that's painful

    @PonySlaystation I'm just going to stick with the default elementary OS code editor and gcc instead of code::blocks, save myself the pain

    *opens udemy*
    *everything 90% off*

    Oh... really, apparently a 10 video course on how to not understand a person is worth 2.5K these days.

    Is there any decent content on this platform worth its exaggerated value?

    @C0D4 wait. You mean buy stuff on Udemy when it's NOT on sale?

    You're a fucking idiot if you do (to be fair there are some that are genuinely worth a few hundred dollars easily)

    @lxmcf no, I've never bought anything on it. Reviews are good enough for me to not bother, when all you see is "can't understand", "why you speed so badly", "accent you thicc".

    Besides that I'm not much of a video learning guy, but that's probably due to the lack of half decent speakers.

    @C0D4 fair point, I just power through it because I can't find any decent reading material most of the time

    @lxmcf Is it even possible to buy course for a full price there? They have always sales...

    I honestly don't hate code::blocks (from what I remember the dubugger sucks though), of course now I'd use VSCode.

    What I really hate is Dev-C++, back in highschool we used it.

    @C0D4 in short - it's good to get you going when you've thrown yourself at something completely unfamilliar to you and you have no idea where to even start. I see it lately has become bloated with "anyone can make a course - come start earning big bucks" and that attracted people who want to make content with little effort only to make money.

    @Chrupiter oh my... I remember using dev-C++ at high school once and it put me off learning C and C++
