I've spent years trying to figure out a path to become a good coder. I went to college and began studying C++ coding and I ended up failing out not because of the code and the understanding but because of laziness.
So I'm looking to get back into the world of coding, and I've always been interested in C/C++ but I also am interested in web coding. I've been jumping between projects forever. I start playing with C/C++, I jump to HTML, I jump to PHP, and then I give up and go back to being a bum trying to find a job at a local wal-mart.
So I'm looking for a little bit of direction as someone who wants to start out and learn C/C++ and possibly branch out from there. I am looking to do C/C++ as a profession and possibly begin in the freelance market.
I guess my question is does anyone have some advice and possibly a path for me to begin on?
