    Learn C++

    Two websites offering assistance with getting started when learning to code in C++

    Link 1: Learn C++

    LearnCpp.com is a totally free website devoted to teaching you to program in C++. Whether you’ve had any prior experience programming or not, the tutorials on this site will walk you through all the steps you’ll need to know in order to create and compile your programs. Becoming an expert programmer won’t happen overnight, but with a little patience, you’ll get there. And LearnCpp.com will show you the way.
    Link 2: C++ Language Tutorial - C++ Documentation

    These tutorials explain the C++ language from its basics up to the newest features of ANSI-C++, including basic concepts such as arrays or classes and advanced concepts such as polymorphism or templates. The tutorial is oriented in a practical way, with working example programs in all sections to start practicing each lesson right away.
    This entire guide can be downloaded as a single 144 page PDF:

    Thanks for this, I have a few C++ resources but I prefer this whole "reach an objective" method. I'll check these out tonight!

    C++ is so similar to PHP (syntax wise), after quickly reading through a couple pages they explain exactly what functions do what - and other than that you can write a small application in seconds. I have my night planned!

    Good timing, I'm just about to have another work through my "C++ Games Programming in 24 Hours" book. Haven't looked at it in years but do remember it skirted over certain critical elements of the language that should be understood rather than copied word for word, so these will be a great companion I think!

    Where did you get hold of that book? I'd be interested in a copy.

    I bought it in PC world about 10 years ago...

    It's this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sams-Teach-Y.../dp/067232461X

    As I say, it is possible to get through it with no prior C++ knowledge, but I'm going back at it armed with some more knowledge as I think I'll get a lot more from it.

    I found out about this CPP complete course by the Birkbeck College and looks pretty good: Elements of C++

    I just brought Accelerated C++ (Accelerated C++: Practical Programming by Example C++ in Depth Series: Amazon.co.uk: Andrew Koenig, Barbara E. Moo: Books) and although it's a killer book, it also requires just as much concentration as the comments say! Definitely start with these sort of resources (above) before purchasing expensive books!
