C++ on a Friday

CppQuiz Android App now available!

CppQuiz.org is an open source C++ quiz site ran by me, with contributions from the C++ community. If you’re unfamiliar with it, you can read more in its “About” section.

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Sergey Vasilchenko. Without my knowledge, he’d built a prototype Android app for CppQuiz, and asked for my input. Naturally I was delighted, and since then we’ve been collaborating a bit on the project. I’ve been making some adjustments to the backend (basically adding some API functionality to cppquiz.org) and I’ve also done a bit of testing and review of the app. Most of the work here was by Sergey of course, who implemented the app.

The app works very similarly to the site itself, with the big advantage that it also works when you’re off-line. It downloads all the questions from cppquiz.org on startup, and updates its database regularly. Perfect for your daily, bad reception commute!

Currently training mode is the only available mode, but Sergey is working on a quiz mode too. He’s also planning to open source the app in the near future.

So, go download the C++ Quiz App now, and give it a spin!
