Hey, sorry if this question is way over-asked, but I'm wondering where I should go to learn C++. I've done tons of web development and design, but whenever I dabble into proper coding, I end up getting discouraged and giving up (except for with Objective C, but my mac broke down, so I can't do that either). I learned Jquery through Code Academy, and I really dug that site's style of teaching, but they've only got tutorials for Python and Ruby as far as programming goes.

First go here
then search for cplusplus tutorial pdf and then download it and then go back there and search for c++ beginner tutorial pdf and download all you can find. 
 
If you have money, go  here and search for c++ tutorial books.

My advise is if you want see some results, try out python, ruby or other script languages.

You will see it is very easy. But if you really want use c++ be well prepared. It's not easy 

and different from Objectiv-C.

But i agree him use google, buy some books if you have the money. and because i had today a wonderful day with free starbucks coffee

here one only one link which could help you: https://www.youtube.com/user/CodingMadeEasy

 

His tutorials a very simple and easy. To follow him will be no problem. He had various of tutorials not only c++ also for SFML, allegro, etc

so i hope it will help you :D

Well thanks a ton for giving me help rather than condescending links to Google. I'll take a look at Python, although from what I've seen, Python syntax is really different to most other languages, which'll be a bit of a learning curve. Once I'm done with that I'll move onto that channel an C++.

python's syntax is not so different. perhaps on the first view. the only thing what is really different and what i also at the beginning not so used to in it you don't have brackets which seperates codeblocks. and some of the oop features looks strange.

But that makes the beauty of python. anyway try it out, learn it, eat it, sniff it. and you will see very quick some results.

Python's syntax really isn't that different when you get down to it. It's a little more intuitive in my opinion, and it'll be a nice stepping stone for you. It certainly doesn't spoon-feed you, but it's not as finicky as many other languages, so it should help you to get a handle on things without overly aggravating you. Good luck!

Thanks mate. I just started looking at it, and the lack of curly braces is weird as well as the lack of semicolons, but it's definitely more efficient to get rid of those things.

Thanks, I'll try!

You can check out my c++11 video tutorials in my sig, they are a work in progress and I am making more videos, they cover quite a bit already.

For C++(it's not that scary as most people make it sound, though it is somewhat hard in the beginning - but if you find a book that suits you it should be easy):

Things you can check when it comes to books:

Alright, I'll look at that too once I'm done with Python. There's a lot of reading to be done!
