=== Jamsa's C/C++/C# Programmer's Bible ===
 
 
This book (ISBN 0766846822) was issued before the C++03 update to the [[wikipedia:ISO/IEC_14882|ISO/IEC 14882]] standard and doesn't follow current conventions. For example it uses <syntaxhighlight lang="cpp">#include <iostream.h></syntaxhighlight> instead of: <syntaxhighlight lang="cpp">#include <iostream></syntaxhighlight> Sadly enough it also isn't listed on the publisher's site and I can't find any other mention of errata for it.

''I remember sometime between 2000 and 2001, I walked into a small library and found this book on the shelf. Looking through the pages I was immediately struck by the the level of detail presented, and honestly quite overwhelmed. This book is not for those just starting out with C++, and certainly not those new to programming in general''

''Unlike the first tome, when this title released I was ready for it. I still found the text to be highly detailed and complex, but I understood what I read and could appreciate the author's expertise in covering the material; it could be a much harder read.''

The following content is a Work In Progress and may contain broken links, incomplete directions or other errors. Once the initial work is complete this notice will be removed. Please contact me via Twitter with any questions and I'll try to help you out.


Subpages


Resources

Various resources in no particular order (I'll eventually organize them)


Videos

I haven't watched all of these, so I'm not necessarily endorsing any of them

  • XoaX.net - Misc videos ranging from C++ to Neural Networks
  • thenewboston - website dedicated to providing free, quality tutorial videos on a broad range of subjects
  • Programming Video Tutorials (PVT) - Covers many popular programming languages through both text and video tutorials.


Tutorials/Free Books

References

Misc

  1. I couldn't recommend their reference section enough
  2. It's always interesting to hear opposing points of view
  3. From the table of contents in Enough Rope to Shoot Yourself in the Foot
  4. That's the name of the site, Bjarne Stroustrup is the original creator of C++ - Good FAQs listed here.
  5. Blogs which link to programming resources (College lectures, books). Looks very good.
  6. Looks to be *very* useful.


OS Neutral

CSV files

INI files


Windows specific

I've logged Windows-specific notes here

Forums


Books

Misc books I'm working through while learning C++

Collection

I really haven't found a good way to list/catalog them yet, so I'm still experimenting with where to place them
