Programming API Fundamentals

Unreal Engine 4’s programming API can be quite challenging to tackle if you are new to the programming side of the engine or just new to the engine in general. In addition, finding the information needed to answer specific questions can sometimes be difficult because of the massive documentation and forum questions that may not fully answer your specific question or the lack thereof depending on the question. This article will help to alleviate some of the many questions that can come up in the early stages of learning the API.

Storing documents on file sharing services like Dropbox and Google Drive has become a common practice online in the last five years. In that time, as people create, edit and hoard older data files, they find they are running short of the free space included with an account. With more and more people opting for either a tablet-only existence or switching from a traditional desktop computer with multiple internal drives to a laptop with a much smaller SSD drive, finding an alternate storage system is important.

At a cost of between $0.05 and $0.10 per gigabyte per month for additional online storage, you can spend anywhere from $500 to $600 per year for just 1 terabyte. As you will see, a more economical solution is to own your own personal cloud hosted on your home network.
