I am in the process of writing up tutorials on c++ and putting them on my web-page. I have started writing a few tutorials but I don't have them on this computer. I am fairly new to C++ so I will need all the help I can get. The first part of my tutorials will be about general information and misconceptions the people who want ot learn c++ always seem to get. I have it set up into chapters so it will be easier for me to explain, but it is not going to be a book. I am not worried about the order either.
I. Pre-basics: What you need to know before you begin.
a. The long road a head.
In the topic "The long road a head" I will discuss what people will not be able to do just by learning C++ alone. I will also talk about how much time and dedication it will take to become fluent in the language. I will try to help people understand that C++ is a good starting point to learn more about programming. Why they need to lean different stuff like DirectX, OpenGL or windows programming. What the difference is between API's. Lastly, where they can get help.
In the topic "Logic" I will talk about how people should go about planning to write a program using real world analogies and relate it to programming.
In "Syntax" I will cover a few things such as, what a syntax error is and tips on how to avoid making them. Teach them good habbits to get into.
That is all I can think of on the top of my head. If anyone thinks I should add anything to any of these topics it would really help me out. As I said before, I am still new to this language so I think this will be a good learning expeirence for me as well. I will be adding to this thread every few days with more information on my tutorials. I would like to get all kinds on information about some topics from all kinds of different people. It would be nice if I could have lengthy tutorials instead of the short and sweet ones that I always see. Even if it is just a sentence or two, post it.
Thanks in advance!
