DirectX Versus OpenGL

This is an amazing read.

http://programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/60544/why-do-game-develop...

doing graphics research project in the early 2000's this article really struck a cord with me. So many memories, it hard to believe that such a powerhouse of a API could be torn apart by bureaucracy.

Interview with Bjarne Stroustrup

A good interview with Bjarne Stroustrup by James Maguire. He discusses the current state of CS graduates and the industry in general. Stroustrup is probably one of the few famous computer scientists I can relate to and I share many of his views on the state of computer science and the business world.

Monitoring Memory usage in C++

Wow it's been a long time since I posted last. Anyway I found this very indepth article on creating tools to assist in debugging memory usage problems in c++.

Monitoring Memory Usage - Gamasutra Now if my other projects ever slow down I might just get a chance to play with some of these things.

Why do people still dislike C++

Recently this article from Mark Roulo from way back in 2001 made the rounds on reddit. He talks about how difficult c++ is as a language and why it should never be used for a large project. He goes into great detail about his interview questions designed to frustrate the most seasoned of C++ developers and spends a lot of time berating the use of pointers in C++. I have a real problem with kind of article. They focus way to much on the c side of c++ and not the ++ part.
