    Question A new World

    Ok so I have taught myself some c++ from a book
    Got up to pointers and working on it.

    A question for somebody out there that has made programming their life.

    If right now you new nothing of programming.

    What would you do to learn?
    Don't just say
    LEARN C++ THEN LEARN JAVA THEN LEARN ORBITAL MECHANICS THEN HACK THE MILITARY AND SHOOT MISSILES AROUND!


    Tell me what to learn first then 2nd then 3rd.

    Their have been many posts covering this subject before however I will sum some of them up for you. Some people say to learn Java then to learn C++. Some people say to just learn C++, others still believe it is good to learn C then C++ and some like VB, and some like assembly, ect. What ut really comes down to is what you like and what you want to do. If you like C++, then get a couple of good books, read through them, do all the practice problems, post any problems here, and when you are done you will be a decent programmer.

    Now just talking about C++, learn about data types and the basics of input and output to the screen. Mess around with functions and pointers, get into classes and Object Oriented Programming; play around with the Standard Template Library and ......

    Get a good book and read it.

    Hi

    He's a pretty good link on books.

    I just recommend doing the exercises in your textbook for now because we all can't afford to spend $50-$100 on various books, but the link is there if your looking for another book.

    If you want to program in c++...

    Start in C++! If you start in say Quick Basic or even C

    you might develop habits for those languages and find it hard to adapt to c++
    What is C++?
