    Learned c++ what's next?

    Hello!

    I've almost finished learning core C++, and I intend to learn game programming, what's next ?

    What book did you read after learning core C++ ?
    -----------------
    In other words.. What's the next step ?
    I have a code which stops life!

    Helo. I myself learned c first. But i guess that after you learn each new language you should try to apply it to something, game programming is probably the best choice. I'm currently reading Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus.

    Program tic-tac-toe (my tutorial if you need help)

    After that, program a Pong clone. Then do Tetris. Those will keep you busy for a while - you'll need to learn an API like SDL or Allegro for graphics.
    Away.
