New to programming: newbie ??'s
First, I'd like to say what a great website this is! LOTS of very helpful information! I'd like to ask all you experienced programmers out there a few questions.( if you don't mind).
I'm currently in a C programming class and am doing very well. We're learning flow control and that kind of newbie stuff. My question is: What are some good ways to learn how to code effectively? Is it all book knowledge? hands-on experience? or both? I plan on making a career out of programming and I'm just looking for advice. Should you have a very good backround of C before taking C++? What are the main differences between the two?
I appreciate ANY feedback or just a "hello"!
