This assignment is intended to introduce you to the user interface toolkit we will use in class, FLTK (Fast Light ToolKit), and the programming environment for which you will have to submit assignments, Visual C++. For some of you this may also be your introduction to C++.
For this assignment you must:
You shouldn't have any questions for your TAs about why your C++ program doesn't compile / doesn't work until after you've gone through both the set of lessons and the Introduction to Visual Studio.
You do not need to hand in anything related to this assignment. Your progress is not graded. However, you will require the skills developed in this assignment to complete the projects in the class, so you should do the assignment now to determine if you will have any problems. When project time comes around the TAs will be too busy to help you with problems that are covered in this assignment. Problems now should be directed to the TAs during their office hours.
Enjoy it. It's your first graphics program, and getting something up on the screen that responds is always good.
