    Getting Started - Programming C++

    Ive noticed, alot of people, asking how to get started on C++, and dont know where to get started etc. So I made a youtube video tutorial, on how to get started and what each line of code does.

    C++ Tutorial 1 - Hello World - YouTube

    That was awful, and you should feel awful.

    How do we keep getting this crap!?

    ? It tells you the function of each line of code, and what to write...
    And how to make a simple program? In my eyes, thats what its supposed to do.

    Video is an awful waste of bandwidth - 20MB to convey what could be conveyed in a couple of KB of text, and you can't even copy/paste from the tutorial to try it for yourself.
    You have to go for the high res large files, because the text is just a fuzzy mess on the low res 5MB files.

    Also, your terminology is all wrong - Bracket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    ( ) these are parentheses
    { } these are braces
    [ ] these are brackets
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
