Hi guys, its the noob again. I was curious, instead of searching for a tutorial or w/e on how to do something specific, is there a learning resource website that will actually give you a task and walk you through it so that you learn everything first hand? Thanks
There are some exercises on this site. There are probably exercises on other sites too.
If you get a book (which you will, no doubt, need at some point sooner or later anyways), then it will most likely have some exercises in it.
A "step by step" approach is fine, but sooner or later you will have to learn how to write YOUR OWN code. Start with something real simple, then make it more and more complex.
Most websites and tutorials will give you the basics on how somthing works and functions, it teaches you how to make it run, then you figure out how to improve it, add things to it etc.
A book will have much more insight on somthing, explain a difficult topic more in depth, and some offer challenging exercises to test if you really can handle what you have been taught.
All right, thanks guys. Ive got an E-book, sams teach yourself c++ in 24 days, i havent had a chance to run through it yet, but has anyone read this book and find it insightful? Just curious.
I have that book yes.
Its a good learning tool has some nice examples. Doesnt teach you any bad practices I could see. The only bad thing was the cd that comes with it, its awful. It doesnt however teach file reading or any Standard Template Library in depth, so I would advise sticking with it for now and get the basics down. When you are comfortable, move on to another book, Accelerated C++ is a popular choice for a second book.
