I recently decided to start learning SDL C++. I think I have mastered the basics of C++ and I am ready to move onto graphics and/or 2D games. I was just wondering if anybody knows a good place to start such as a book, a tutorial, a resource, or anything I can use so I have at least some clue where to start and how to use the library. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Great thanks! Now I can finally get started on learning some graphics. Maybe my games won't be completely terrible now! lol

However, if anyone else has other ideas, I always love contributions.

Yeah unfortunately I can't think of any good books that walk you step-by-step making an SDL game from scratch. That's why I"m using Allegro with "Game Programming All One" right now instead.

Allegro is what I am about to switch to. Its very hard to find decent SDL books. I am working through Data Structures for Game Programming right now which is a nice book but it just uses SDL for its examples.
