Coding project

I need a small coding project, that will let me practice more than just simple procedural problems, but is not so massively complicated I die of it. I also, let’s be clear here, need sleep, food, and to remember what the inside of a bathtub looks like. Nevertheless, I’m looking for things in about that order.

I don’t know enough to know what an ideal project would be, which is making this hard.

Hollow Victory

I recently decided I needed to be able to convert raster images to vectors in my software so I could drive Itchy the Artbot. I looked up OpenCV as a way of comprehending computer vision, because it was the only thing I had heard of.

Apparently ‘vector’ and ‘std::vector’ are different things.

This was an error of ignorance that I could only put right once I’d learned enough C++ to feel I could go back to the OpenCV help files. So, I spent a month getting to the point where I could find out I shouldn’t waste time on this. Fucksake.
