Again, this should be in the Announcements forum. I think this is the 2nd post about this subject in a short period of time. I think you should just learn how to use the appropriate forum.

New C++ VTMs available for preorder!
Have you ever wanted to become a programmer and write your own video games? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to understand a modern programming language? Have you ever felt intimidated by the level of knowledge needed to be a proficient programmer? Have you tried to teach yourself C++ using books or websites, but to no avail?

If you answered “yes” to any of the previous questions, then 3D Buzz has a solution that will change the way you look at programming forever! 3D Buzz is making it’s C++ Programming VTMs available to the public for the first time ever!

The first three issues of the C++ Programming VTM Series will soon be available in our store for only $49.95 USD each (plus S&H). These three VTMs will get even the complete beginner up to speed in the world of object-oriented programming with C++! The first two issues introduce the viewer to the necessary techniques and syntax needed for programming in C++, while issue 3 demonstrates the creation of a fully-playable video game! The lessons for each of these videos are listed below.

3D Buzz has also just finished issues 4 and 5 of the C++ Programming VTM Series, and we are currently having both CDs professionally printed! These issues cover more advanced techniques in C++, including user interface development, and game design! They also contain a total of over seven hours of instruction including never-before-seen lessons that will only be available on the CDs, and are currently available in the store for preorder at only $49.95 each (plus S&H)! The discs will be ready for shipment during the first week of December.

Best of all, to celebrate the release of the two latest issues of the C++ Programming VTM Series, 3D Buzz is announcing a special offer, just in time for the Holidays! For those who preorder both issues 4 and 5, we will include issues 1, 2, and 3 absolutely FREE! That’s a $149.85 savings that will give you access to the entire C++ VTM Series to date, spanning nearly eighteen hours of content! Plus, we will ship the first three issues of the series as soon as you order, so that you can get started right away, and be fully up to speed when the other two VTMs arrive in early December!
