I'm a newbie to programming. I mean it's always interested me since I was 15 yrs. old, but I never really had any help learning and wasn't too serious about it anyways until recently when I started looking at online Tutoials. I decided to learn C++ because it seems like the best language there is. I'm curious as to what kind of programs to start writing after the tutorial? Should I make goals? or just continue to write meaningless programs forever..I guess I don't know what to challenge myself with. Usually it's either way too hard or too easy....any suggestions?
