So I should use Xcode instead of Visual Studio as my editor? Will I run into problems in the course doing that? I think that also means I can use something like CLion as well per a question I asked a few days ago. Sorry for the redundancy, I just don't really know C++ at all and how that has implications on a Mac since I really only use Java.
Edit: In that other thread you mentioned that a lot of the sample code is provided as vs projects. So I am not sure if that still means I can use another IDE and import the vs projects somehow.
