In my personal opinion, i think i watched his tutorials when i was learning basic of c++. I learned basics from him but many
concepts where explained so badly and all i knew was bacon, fish etc...
There are better ones around, but if you like person they are educative.
Conclusion I learned from him at start and i approve of it being good. But few terms where so badly explained that i had to go find other
tutorials to make up for missing information.
All in all if you want the basic as you noted, its good enough and its free! go watch them.
BTW Go watch Thenewboston acting "Bear grills" surviving in the wilderness and **** for a bet. You will learn a little from that but its a good time sink.
TheNewBoston is one of the worst learning centers on the internet, IMHO.
You have very high standards, i respect that. But you obviously didn't start learning c++ on the youtube,
because no man that did would state that TheNewBoston is near worst or you didn't search long enough around youtube.
The amount of bullship i watched/heard, now that i know how stuff works
and have moderate experience in c++ it just hurts me that those videos
don't have 90% dislikes at least.
