Hey guys!

 

One of my colleagues wants to tag along as I'm working on a project, and learn in the process. He's devops, so he knows some basics already. I'm keen on helping him out, and teaching him some good and useful stuff, but after our first session it seems there is a big gap he needs to overtake on his own.

 

I'm looking for a good book to teach the basics of c++, which does not spend too much time on a specific topic (like game development), and touches the surface of most topics.

 

Cheers,

Pal.

 

ps.: I did some searching in the forums, but nothing like this came up.

Perhaps this list:

Beyond books I really like the C++ content at pluralsight: https://www.pluralsight.com/

 

I also like the book "Game Programming Patterns" http://gameprogrammingpatterns.com/ . I know you don't want something specific to Game Programming but I still find this to be a good book.

I used this series of books in University to get me into the swing of coding initially.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Sams+teach+yourself+

They're not game related but they do go into a lot of depth onot the basics of coding fundamentals which translate well into game development.

www.stackoverflow.com is also a must for guidance on coding.

If watchinges videos is your way of learning, for C++, I would recommend http://xoax.net/cpp/crs/console/index.php as well.
