SDL teacher wanted!

Guys I’ve been trying so hard to figure out how to get these SDL libraries to work with visual C++, code::blocks and dev c++. I cant seem to get anything to work and Im just curious if there is anyone out there who would be willing to possibly Skype, fb call, text, or any other method of communication faster than a forum and walk me through setting up SDL? Having a really hard time with this, but I’m dying to learn. Would love to have a real time conversation with an experienced programmer, but any help would be greatly appreciated!

Setting up dev environments and cross-platform build systems I often
find more painful than working on the actual program. So I’ve been
working on I’ve been working on a new SDK called Blurrr which tried to
solve this problem.

It includes pre-built libraries like SDL for Visual Studio,
SteamOS/Linux, Mac, iOS, Android, and Raspberry Pi, plus ready-to-go
project templates with a unified build system (based on CMake) so you
can just edit a single text file to add files, and you can get out
ready-to-use native projects such as Visual Studio, Xcode, Android
Studio, Makefiles, etc. I just added Qt Creator support for Linux. I
plan on looking at adding Codeblocks for Linux in the near future.

Anyway, Blurrr tries to solve the problem/frustration you are having
so I encourage you to try it out. Blurrr itself is just a
download-and-go. It is completely self-contained, no installers or
dependency hell. (You just need your platform’s native compilers

I am also willing to communicate directly with you via Skype or
whatever (or anybody else who is interested) to help you out with it.
Feel free to contact me directly if you are interested.

For SDL there is an IRC channel in freenode too, #SDL , for real time chat somewhat like Skype. If you have no IRC client, use . Don’t be afraid to ask beginner questions there, people there will be more than happy to answer. Also don’t ask there whether you can ask questions, just ask.
