    Default C++ tutorials and forums

    Hey! After taking a sneak peak at the module descriptor for a Rendering module I'll be taking this coming semester, I realised It will consist of learning a new language (bore -_-).

    As the title says, that language will be C++ and I was just wondering if people who have already undertaken C++ in the past, to use their experience and point me in the direction of good, consistent C++ tutorials, as well as a good C++ forum of this forums standards.

    Many thanks

    If you're using Microsoft VC++ (Visual C++), I would recommend taking a look at their MSDN online documentation. It's not that well organized or easy to understand, but it's probably the most reliable source for information on anything related to code built in visual studio.

    Otherwise, cplusplus.com - The C++ Resources Network is a great resource for tutorials and "standard" c++ library documentation. They also have a fairly helpful forum, though I usually use Stack Overflow (The whole Stack Exchange network of site is a great place to get almost anything answered, including anything to deal with computers, math, english, cooking, gaming, etc.).

    Hey helloworld, thanks a ton for those links.

    It says the software we will be using is 'DevC++ with OpenGL pre installed'. So I assume as It's just a normal IDE, It won't be VC++.
    Will give them a shot and hopefully alleviate a % of the learning process from when the module starts.
