I have been eager to get into C++ programming but cannot seem to follow the programming tutorials as I don’t understand where the tutors get their code from
(they copy & paste it). Another bit of a turn off for me was compiling took forever, even a simple hot compile where I changed a number from say 1 to 4 would take
1-2 minutes. Now I decided to learn Blueprints since they seemed like a big deal, and the tutorials regarding them seem much more intuitive. I understand much better
how everything works.
Now compiling blueprints takes half a second, even when I make huge changes. I really want to get into C++ programming as I’m not a big fan of visual scripting
as doing simple things can require a lot of nodes (a for loop for example). But again I was turned off by compiling times.
Is there a reason why blueprints compile faster than C++? Aren’t blueprints technically references to C++?
