In Topic: C++ As First Language

Hmm... we talking about language or about building machines? If i want to learn Japanese i must start from English? Also i say - that is my opionion, so why to start holy war about that?

Programming language is something little different than calculus, algebra etc. beacuse you can start learning whatever language you want, with no need of knowing rest of it. It depend on you, how fast you will learn this. That's why is better to learn hard language first, when you don't know hard hard it is.

I don't think so.

If i once learn something hard i will learn something easy in no time. But if i start from something easy then i must learn much more things in new language. There is also way of thinking "that is to hard for me." when we see to many differences.

When you can repair car we can repair, let say, bicycle in seconds. But that doesnt work another way.

Yeah, but there is also chance that after that bugatti he wil be more responsible than other drivers in his age.

C++ is great language for beginner. Hard - yes but not impossible.

You should learn something more complicated, that give you more control over your actions and ther move to something easier with that knowledge. If C++ is hard for you then you should think about change of resources. I read ~5 books before i find the right one for me beacuse i prefer books with exercises and examples, like in "C++ Programming: Program Design Including Data Structures" which is my book of choice.

If you want to learn C++, you will learn C++ - it's matter of time. After learning some basics you can move to something different, like C# for example.

Yeah, but main problem is that internet is powerfull source of knowledge. I can find almost everything that i want and i need, sure. But how beginner can separate garbage from diamond? One website for example say to always use
using namespace std;

instead of
using std::cout;
using std::cin;
that i prefer. Which one is correct?

I know that i can learn from web, but i dont want to losse my time for future re-learning things that was not correct.
