Everyone is against C++ for beginners but I began with it and I'm doing just fine.


Lots of games companies make their games in C++; don't be put off because people say it's not a nice beginner language. They're right - it's not, and C# is a much better language.


EDIT: Not at all to undermine the experiences and thoughts of others - just get tired of seeing 'DON'T YOU DARE START C++' when a majority of the industry uses it. 


I never said in my post i was against it as a beginner language. It was my Second (I did Java first). What i said was in Education they dont teach C++ first, they nearly always go for a simple scripting language like python and then move into OO with Java/C#.


OPs question is about learning C++ for school, i said i dont think they will teach him that to start off. Glass_Knife has linked tutorials.

If your starting a new course to CS, I can say with 99.99999999% certainty you will not be using C++. More likely to be Python / Java or C#.


I just finished 4 year CS course at University and we didn't touch C++ with a barge pole for some reason :(
