    You should start at the beginning, i.e., to learn the syntax and semantics of a programming language while developing programmatic problem solving skills and learning about algorithms and data structures.

    A book that you could use to help you get started on the first two would be Accelerated C++, though I must warn you that it is better suited for people who already have a programming background or are guided by an instructor.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Look up a C++ Reference and learn How To Ask Questions The Smart Way
