Ok, so I was reading a few posts on the forums and I saw that wonderful fight between Dfighter & Demonicpenguin so using the power of google I found an awesome book that maybe some people (Including myself) should ready before asking stupid questions. The staff work their butt off trying to give us a stable program for us to have fun with. The least we could do is try learning the language. Honestly I dont like being one of those people that ask alot questions and depend on others for help. So without further ado.

C++ For Dummies

Now their should be no reason you cant even learn the basics of this language.

Best regards,
Messer


*Please note that this book is from 2009 so somethings might be out of date. But this is a really good book to start with and for the time being the best I could find.

Edit: no pirate links, thank you

I have the book myself. After reading 50 pages i stopped reading it. It's a waste of time.

Search this on youtube: AntiRFTM
Thats probaly the best i can recommend for beginners.

When you've been through all these tutorials, search google on how to create a culcalutor or something, use what you've learned.
Maybe find a guy who is expert in c++ who wants to explain and teach you a bit.

After that move into wow if your aiming for that. Read the clases and start understanding the code.

Thats pretty much the fastest way to learn !:D

Good luck!

Anything in the "for dummies" series is a waste if you want to actually really learn something.
However books in general are not at all a waste of time, they are the best way to study things.
Read the book and then apply the knowledge you learned by writing programs, the rest comes with experience.
Tutorials, videos, etc are all pretty much useless, as there is sadly no way to learn programming easily.

What's wrong with normal books?
I learned Pascal, C, C++, Java, hell even HTML, PHP and the basics of MySQL from normal books....
Reading doesn't hurt, I promise!

I prefer the normal books too,watching videos don't help you much,knowledge will go on your short time history by watching video,but when you read books you can remember what you have read when you're coding .
Trust me, good luck .
I'm here to check,lurk and kill you so behave or you will be lurked
