View Full Version : What c++ training videos would you recommend?

06 June 2005, 04:05 PM
I recently picked up a copy of, and want to get dirty with it (in an innocent kinda way), but I haven't got a clue about c++ (let alone visual c++ .net ). What would you all suggest for video (dvd, cd or vhs). I know of a few good resources for books and web, but I'd really like to find that visual/audio mix for learning.

The only thing I could find were the videos by keystone. Are they any good?

Hmm. Maybe just my opinion, but videos might help learning a user interface (maybe that helps with Visual Studio), but programming languages are learned by courses or books.
I would recommend you to get a starters book for learning C++.

Do you have programming experiences in other languages? I just ask, because C++ may be not the weapon of choice when starting programming, because it's rather complex and hard to understand for beginners.

i found a few at 3dbuzz.. not sure how good but they are quite expensive.

yes i ordered the 3dbuzz videos (for c++ and opengl programming) a few days ago... when i got them in my hands i can tell you if it's worth the money (which is quite a lot...)

Wow, I don't think I have the patience to watch someone else program C++.

But hey! if people are buying then maybe... ;)

I would pick up a copy of deitel and deitel's c++ how to program 5th edition. I don't think I've ever even heard of a c++ (or any programming language for that matter) video tutorial. Books are probably the best way to go.

Watching someone program... That should be a test for ADHD.

I would go the book route. A sweet one is:

Accelerated C++, Practical Programming by Example (Andrew Koenig)

It teaches you some pretty advanced core topics very quickly.
