Twitter for C++ Programmers

Twitter for C++ Programmers

Oct 01 2013
Author:

I've recently got an idea to write a small post for programmers who use Twitter or consider using it. I hope you will find this post useful and interesting.

I ignored Twitter for a very long time because it didn't seem to be of any interest at all. I tried to get started with it once, but I found it just a collection of meaningless pieces of information, cats' photos and people's opinions on subjects I was absolutely indifferent to. I tried to find someone to follow, but the only thing that occurred to me was to follow Mikhail Zadornov's page (he's the Russian humorist). So, we failed to become friends with Twitter at first.

However, I gradually grew familiar with it and even managed somehow to get over two thousands of followers. But that's not the point. Now I'll be brief and tell you what it's all about.

So, here you are, a C++ programmer, wondering if you might discover anything interesting on Twitter. I have a few tips for you.

First of all, you can use hashtags to search for interesting posts. This means also that you can subscribe to pages of those authors whose links and comments you like to read. Consider the following tags:

  • #cplusplus
  • #cpp
  • #cpp11
  • #programming
  • #coding
  • #dev
  • #developers
  • #appsec
  • #VS2012 , #VS2013
  • #security
  • #github
  • #clang
