I am new in c++ development and I just found this board.
I started developing in c++ 2 days ago ... and it's quite fun and funny as well. The syntax and the basics are quite easy for me, because I am developing in PHP since 3 years, and as we know PHP is actually based on C. So thats not the big deal.
I read the c / c++ made easy tutorials on your suggested site Cprogramming.com - Programming Tutorials: C++ Made Easy and C Made Easy and some german tutorials as well.
But I want to get deep into c++ as fast as possible...the first challanges I would like to take are:
storing data in a database and / or XML files
To the GUI subject: I was searching a little bit with google and co, but actually I could not find anything helpful for starting GUI development with c++. But I found the qt framework, which provides a lot in GUI and other options, such as database and xml.
So therefor I have the questions, if you recommend starting with qt at this early point or do you know some specific things I should take a look at according to my written points (db, xml, gui)?
Honestly I prefer having the knowledge how to do it plain first, and not using a framework, because I want to know what is actually happening in the background.
I am afraid to say that, but I am also asking you if you could give me some suggestions / examples of "mini projects" I could start off with c++. I am quite idealess and I dont know anything appart from a calculator what i can do with CLI at the beginning of my c++ career : / What did you do first when you were starting c / c++? If you type me some tags I probably can figure out some things I could possibily develop.
Anyway, I hope it was not to difficult to understand my crap english and I am looking forward to hearing some hopefully helpful answers from you.
Take care and best regards,
