I’ve started writing the part of my tutorial site that deals with actually getting into programming with Juce now. I’ve not got time to put the HTML together yet, so i’m just doing it as a PDF for now. I’ll keep it updated as i write more, but for now I thought I’d post the first two chapters to get some feedback. I’ve not properly proof-read it yet or anything :hihi:
Here’s the first two chapters as PDF, and the two source archives (one for each chapter).
The next chapter will cover ButtonListeners and ChangeListeners, and will describe how to use multiple inheritance to give your components the properties you need.
The following chapter will cover basic painting operations (simple shapes and string literals, introducing Colours along the way), so that the coder can begin to output things.
Then, I will begin to unveil the core classes, once the coder knows how to put stuff onto the screen. That means things like Strings, Arrays, Files and Xml will be explained. These will probably be each given chapters, which will also be sections accessible on my site as specific guides.
There will be a section on debugging too, once the coder is aware of the things they can do. Once I’ve reached that point, i should have a fairly thorough guide on “the stuff in Juce that you simply need to know”, which should get anyone started. it should be possible for the coder to experiment with what they’ve learned, and the rest of the site will be sections dedicated to specific classes, such as ListBox, etc…
