Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

As the title says is there any good way to learn C++ and C#. Im asking because I want to make games, and I would like to make them more "sophisticated" if you understand what I mean. :D

Go try to make something. When it fails go learn why. Rinse and repeat.

Don't be a dumbass and think you will learn it over night. Its takes time. Also, YOU WILL NEVER LEARN EVERYTHING ABOUT C++ PROGRAMMING! You need to learn how to learn what you need when you need to learn it. :) Think Just In Time(JIT).

 

Start with the basics:

 

Spend a few months learning and writing anything you want. Have fun with it, make a simple program. Like a PC part picker calculator, something that interests you. If you like girls, do what Bill Gates did and make a app that track what girls are in what classes so you can figure out what classes to take. That is from bill gates himself in a code.org video.

 

Next, learn about a framework like:

 

http://oxygine.org

http://oxygine.org/doc/api/classes.html

 

Don't jump right into that, if you can't understand the difference between a instance variable to a class variable(just an example) you won't understand a framework. 

 

Dedicate time everyday, or most days to learning something about programming. 

 

I was in the same boat as you, I wanted to learn how to program. Now I am not an expert, I am not a CS student, but I am about to finish a intro to Java course and I am feeling confident I can run a website with Java on the Server side. After pounding Java in my head for 2 months, using youtube, the java tutorials(official and non official) and a free Java for Dummies book that is online, I feel I can make some pretty cool apps, maybe not a game, but If I wanted to I probably could.  Logic is a whole different thing from programming. 

 

The thing about programming a game is you need to make up the game logic.

If player is hit/ if player blocked/ if player is in position xyz/ if player has certain ability/ if player currenthealth - hit< 0//// That is logic, thats is were a game can becoime tricky.

 

If you dedicate yourself to learning, you can do it. Like I said, I am in a Java class, I'm 30, two kids and a wife. I am taking the class online. Before the class, I would watch a few videos, write a small console calculator and then be done. All the class did for me was get me to focus longer and had me read Oracles website on learning java.

 

So far it worked! Although this is super simple, I made a app for drunks... while drinking! http://thedami.co/TD/weather

That tells you if its the right temperature to leave your beer outside. It only works for the area I live in, but to make it local to anyone, I just need to google "how to get browser location"......... and I found it

Look at that, my app will be updateded.!!!!

 

tldr Dedicate yourself, learn the basics then search for specifics, you will not learn everything, but you can learn what you need when you need it.


Much info

C++

 

Here are some book recommendations for C++ http://stackoverflow.com/a/388282/1765721 (I used #2 -  Accelerated C++ when learning it)

 

There are also many online tutorials you can learn from. There are a few listed here http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/14904-ultimate-programming-resources-thread/ and I'm sure you can find others through Google

 

C#

 

I'm not really sure what the best resource for learning C# is though as I didn't really use anything specific to learn it. Many people here recommend Barnacules Codegasm https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLEbaEyM-xt9mVQEAXGlRRmbO2Qp_oqF-n

 

There are some book recommendations here that you can look through and see if any appeal to you http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2994959/beginners-book-for-net-and-c

 

Also Googling "c# tutorial" brings up some online tutorials
