How do I stay interested in programming C++? #1
I've been programming with C++ for a tad bit and I use it for Arduino. What are better ways to get me to program more often?

I've found the best way to stay interested, is through practical application. When your projects or work requires you to use C++, you'll remain interested. I've remained interested in HTML and PHP over the years, mostly because of the site and other projects.

The only time I used C++ is when I wanna program hardware. I've been looking for more hardware projects to do. I recently just got a project done where I turned my ESP8266 into a controller for my LED Strip allowing me to chose whatever color and whether I can turn it on or off.

If you have a "genuine Interest" In forthcoming projects, you'll find that programming will follow suit.

That Is, you must have an exciting goal to fulfill with the language you'll be using.

Don't burn too long.
By that I mean, don't fire your thrusters full power all the time without quitting. You'll burn out like my raggedy, half-insane arse. It may seem fun when you're doing it, but you'll hate yourself a few years down the line when you don't want to even look at a machine with an OS, and your job skills lay useless before you.
Just take it easy. Enthusiastic, but eeeeeeasy...

Like any hobby, do NOT burn yourself out. If you get stressed or pissed off at something, just quit for a few hours. Do something else to get your mind off of it. You'll get nothing done of you're in a bad mood. And always give yourself something to work on. You'll start to forget things, and you won't gain any experience. Make a mini game or look for project ideas online.

Drako is 100% correct because he agrees with me. That is all!

I'll try out the Mini-Game Idea for once.
I am looking for projects to do in the meantime though.

Build a backend calculator to utilize in order to streamline and make more robust any specific maths your application leans on for its core operation. It was the last thing I was working on in BASIC about 15 years ago. I know your CPU is better at maths than any of us, but putting a more robust operation to use over and over at any point instead of adding the code for the math as you go along.
That might not make sense, but if you look into mathematical theory for fun at all, telling your CPU to do its calculating in a very specific way would be another use of that type of reference script.
I never got to test my theory that referencing a mathematical engine when I need something done rather than telling the program to do it's work on the back of its hand then and there so to speak.
