Can you think of any practical projects using c++?
My other project was for a transport company and it read web links from an excel sheet and went to the delivery status pages and read/wrote certain data (ie dipatch date, deliver date and destination) back to excel in a nice neat speadsheet. This saved a great deal of time from doing it manually as sometimes there were over 30 links to process.
Something like above. Something practical and can be appreciated by a prospective employer eventhough there will be no programming involved in the job. I already know some programming so I'm figuring why not add a few feathers to my cap.
