good tutorials for c++
Posted 22 January 2010 - 03:59 AM
ive been looking alot tutorials for c++, got a book.. etc, the problem is, they dont teach well, lacking information, and not even explaining what are you doing, they just say things like: write "X" then "Y" and press enter, after looking at that, i ask myself... why X? what does X do to Y, what does Y? etc... but fail
to explain anything
at the end, i just gave up on online tutorials and guides
do you know a good source of tutorials about programming on c++ or any good starting programming lenguage?
thanks for any post (and sorry for misspells, english is not my lenguaje)

It's good to be ambitious and C++ is definitely worth learning, but it can be very confusing at first so I'd advise learning a simpler language first. Personally I'd go with C if ultimately you'd like to master C++. Don't stick with C for too long though, as you'll have to unlearn a few things when advancing to C++. Anyway, C will teach you all the underlying programming constructs. Because it's much more explicit than C++ you'll have a better understanding of what is really happening.
Of course there are other options as well. If you definitely want to learn objec-oriented programming from the start, C# might be your best choice. If you want results fast, Python is worth a try.

Hope I helped ;)
EDIT: I almost forgot, this is the Python book I started with. Starting with game programming is probably the best way to start in my opinion, plus the author has a good sense of humor and explains thing well.
The book may be a tad outdated now though.
