1  Crystal Space Development / General Crystal Space Discussion / Re: Resources for Beginners to C/C++ on: December 17, 2008, 05:48:58 am
If you prefer themed learning to get the ball rolling, here's a couple of things I found helpful.

Beginning C ++ Through Game Programming by Michael Dawson

http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Through-Game-Programming-Second/dp/1598633600/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1229488665&sr=8-1

Wrathlands

One resource that really helped me get started was a set of video tutorials for creating a very simple text RPG game. The tutorial starts out by creating a simple design document and takes you all the way to the completed text based game.  The presenter is using Visual Studio.net, but I had no problem following along with Visual C++ Express.  You can follow pretty much in real time (if you have dual screens):

Another IDE to look into would be Eclipse.

That's about it for me.  Before you buy any books, check your local library!  I was able to procure many books on C++ and other languages at my library to learn from there.  Now I just use C++ Primer that I bought from Amazon.  I'll add some more resources when I think of them.
