start with c++ immediately?
Hi guys, I'm a newby here so please, don't get angry if I'm not supposed to ask this here.
In the past I've programmed a little in VB and PHP for college, but I forgot most of it (However, I'm sure that I can pick it up again). I do however understand quite a bit of the "theory" behind programming.
I had to quit college a year and a half ago, but lately I've been really interested in getting into programming (again...), and I was wondering what the wise thing to do would be:
-Start learning C, then move on to C++
-Start with C++ right away
I already own a book on C++ that is regarded as the best one to begin with in my language (Dutch) by alot of people.
My goal in the end would be to be able to program games (cliché, I know), but my motivation to start learning C++ is because I want to go to college to study Application Development, and I think it'd be nice to have knowledge of a powerful language like C++.
should I start to learn programming in C++ or start off with C?
