Starting with C++?
« on: October 19, 2017, 11:54:46 AM »

I'm looking to start maybe learning code. I'd preferably start with something like C++ and would probably start off with small commandline utilities and stuff before moving on to other things. I am using Windows 7, although also have Solus Linux and MacOS High Sierra for other things which I could also test on. :)

Any places I can learn online how to learn C++ and any particular tips and such that can be given about learning code in general?

Microsoft has a collection tools called 'Visual Studio' that lets  you pick the tool you want to learn and use. It has excellent tutorials both from Microsoft and others.
You can use it in Console mode, and the is often how you do C++ programs.
However, the visual interact is a real help while testing and editing a program.

It is highly recommended, even if you only want the C++ part.
An it is free for personal use.
Here is just one of many good starting pints.
Microsoft Forums, C++

And it is all over You Tube.
How to program C++ in Visual Studio.

Of course, don't believe everything on You Tube.
 But you already know that .  ;D

    I understand you may want to learn C++ quickly with lots of programming examples, with my more than 10 years experience on c++ out of 25 years experience, I suggest you videos that will teach you c++ in just one Day, after that you will be capable to understand any c++ forum / book without much efforts..

    All the best....Enjoy learning..
