I appreciate you encouraging people to learn C++ as first language. I also heard about this language called DarkBASIC, that might be a great starting point for several beginners

Wow, as i was reading this, I kept thinking "Is this guy me?!" I too am just starting to develop very basic games(I dont know if you can even call them games yet,) with sprite animation and collision detection. I spent all my first and half of my second year programming in college thinking "When am I going to be able to see stuff on the screen other than a command line?? Seeing sprites being animated by my c++ code was such a wonderful feeling.

I also think that I am still learning the true object oriented approach and writing half breed programs. I plan to study up on it more before tackling my next game project. I will learn C# next after I get more comfortable creating real games with Direct X, and learning HTML/CSS/Javascript/PHP. I have a bunch of free time as I am only taking 1 class next semester and 1 other class the semester after before receiving my A.S in CS and transferring.

Well, I didn't mean to encourage its use, because it might not be a good first step for everybody. My emphasis is on trying it out and experiencing it as a language if you're interested. If it turns out it's too hard, or the concepts too abstract, you can rest assured there are friendlier lanuages out there.

You should try it out for yourself. You'll learn a lot in the process.[/quote]
This is true... I myself started many projects... often they were big ones, like an Operating System, a 3D Engine, RPGs, Strategy Games, Protocols, Simulators, Emulators, etc...
Most of the projects failed, but everytime I learned a lot... I learned the internal scheme of the Linux and Windows System, I learned Assembler, I learned the internal structure of TCP/IP or how a Processor works... The real list is long, but it encourage me to continue... No projects and may it be small as everything, is a real fail.
Everytime you learn a lot... How you can learn Qt without a sample or a big project? There is no other way than trying smile.png
My motto: Try it... fail it... try it again!
I think I will don't change my way... I'm only 18 (ok, in a month 19 ;) ) and learned a lot this way. Why should I went out of my path?
