Hey guys, After brooding on some ideas I've been having for quite a while now, I decided to take the leap back into programming. I'm making this post because I'm wondering whether any of you people has any tips, or links to some basic programming tutorials, or manuals of some sort, specifically for C++. I did some courses in programming before at the uni (C++ in codeblocks, and java in netbeans), but its been quite a while since. The main aim for the information I'm looking for is a sort of summary/oversight of the absolute basics of the C++ architecture. The information I've been trying to work with so far is either too simple, or random, or behind a paywall(like lynda.com). I've also been looking at things like code.org, but it didn't really live up to my expectations. I've got a working version of Visual Studio 2012 obtained via Microsoft dreamspark, as I'm still a student. I hope I'm not asking for the impossible here. In short summing up the important bits: I'm looking for some sort of summary/oversight of the basics of C++(not functions, but architecture). I've got programming experience, but its been a while for C++, recently programmed in matlab. I've got Visual Studio 2012 to work with.
