Python is very slow and hogs memory.  Sure if you call a function that does lots of work like parsing a file, it turns it into c calls, but most of your code isn't like that.  It's meant to be a scripting language.

 

If you want to learn c++ then learn it, you should have a fairly easy time since you already can program in python, and you can even use python from within c++.

 

Grab yourself 2 books.  1 for a introduction/tutorial type book and the other should be a reference type book.  Also add to your browser favorites/bookmarks sites like

www.cppreference.com

www.cplusplus.com

www.msdn.com

 

Possible intro book

Possible c++11 reference book
