The "things" are called IDEs (Integrated Development Environment). You could try dev-cpp, which is free, or MSVC, which isn't. Everyone has a personal favourite so I can't really say which is best.
As for tutorials you could try here, here, here and here.

I assume by "things" you mean compilers and IDEs.

The one you mentioned Bloodshed DevC++ is a good free IDE. A lot of people here use it so you shouldn't have much trouble getting help with it.

Another major compiler which is used here is Visual C++. The current version isn't free but is well worth the investment if you plan to seriously get into C++.

Hope that helps

Every time you call Dev-C++ a compiler, God kills a kitten. Please, think of the kittens.


It'd probably be easier to write a compiler and call it Dev-C++ than to get every newbie to use the terminology correctly.
