A question asked a million times, but where do I start?
Hi, im 19 years old. Im not in college or anything. But im looking to learn C and C++ to program my own games. And possibly get into computer programming and/or computer animation and graphics for my career.
I'de say im about average intellegence, I can learn quik but have trouble memorizing functions, so no advantage there. And my only programming experience is from "Teach Yourself Web Publishing with HTML 4 in 21 Days." I found it easy at first but was lost near the end. Especially with the CGI scripts, as I have no idea about any other prgramming languages.
Im not too interested in learning a high level language first, to me that seems like learning to speak French, than learning German, when all you really need is German. Im also dettered by confusing tutorials and the book "Beginning Programming for dummies."
So should I focus on C++ or C. Also, I know I can look this up, but what are the differences in those languages? Is C++ to C what XHTML is to HTML? Or is C++ a higher level language than C?
Well thanks for readin this. I'll probably think up a user name and post here alot if I can get anywhere in proggraming. Looks like a very fun discussion group :)
