@janriemer sounds like a reasonable middle ground between "haha we're all just copying from stackoverflow here" and "real men know how to write bug-free c++ code, so get away from that keyboard if you don't".

@guenther Yes, exactly! The key message for me is that we should keep learning and question things, so that we can really understand them and improve ourselves.

Yes, it is ok to sometimes copy & paste code to solve a particular problem, but once you are confronted with a similar problem you suddenly don't know what to do anymore.

It's all about understanding the fundamentals of things. Technology and frameworks change, fundamentals don't.
