Hello, everyone

I wanna study C++ course for MFE, although I DON'T have any knowledge about it. I was wondering if the Mac system can run this course smoothly cause I saw the sample lecture is based on running Windows system.:)

Yes, many students have successfully completed using a Mac. Can either use xcode on mac, or set up a VM
