I've caught the programming bug, and have decided to learn C++. I have a specific goal in mind -- to create an Air Traffic Control simulation that is far better than what's on the market already. This sort of thing is pretty light on graphics, mostly just data and symbols moving and changing against a black background.
I'm a fast learner and have lots of time on my hands to read. I don't know if I've started in the right place or not, but C++ just seemed like the right place. I just picked up 3 different books on C++ ranging from 'beginner' to 'advanced'.
I'm currently swimming through a bunch of new terms, like arrays, pointers, OOP, and so on. Can anyone give me some general direction (ie. what to study after I've read and absorbed the C++ books.)
