Entering the c++ realm...
I know that this post might seem like it's in a wrong section but still I prefered to post it here cause I just wanted to greet everyone since I'm new here. Also I'm not asking any particular question in this post, just some tips and hints!
I just started learning programming (on my own), although I was always kinda tech/PC freak... I had no previous experience in programming.
My first language is c++, a lot of people were saying that I was diving into some serious stuff and should start with something easier. Despite all the warnings I decided to try... so far everything looks fine, soon I'll be jumping into arrays and pointers (I know that most of the people are having issues with pointers :o ).
My concerns so far: When I reach the part where I have to begin writing new code (program) I am kinda stuck cause I just don't know how to start and that's pretty weird and frustrating cause I can almost analyze everything in my mind. I can think the way the program should be structured, I know what I have to use and basicly what to do. It's just the problem of implementing all my thoughts in the beginning. (Imagine it like you're in front of a pile of legos, you know what you want to construct and you have a lot of tools and you have the knowledge of how to use the tools and what to do but you simply cannot start. How to create the concrete?).
I know that I'm just a beginner, almost 2 months since I've been learning c++. I guess with experience and practise you're getting better.
So do you guys have any tips? I mean what's the best way when you're coding a program from scratch? How do you start effeciently?
