    Hey guys! I saw this section of the forums and thought to myself, "Oh hey, a programming section! And look! My starting/most experienced language: C++." I went through a lot of difficulty to teach myself and build myself to where I am now. And it has paid off. But finding free and cheap sources of information was pretty hard. So I am going to link a couple of sites and Youtube channels that really helped me out. I will also list some textbooks that I have used as well. I hope you enjoy it and learn what you wish to accomplish.

    Oh! If anyone else has a source they wish to add, feel free to message me the information and I will add it and give you the credit for finding it. Let's make this list as large as possible without repeating the same old stuff.

    WEBSITES:
    http://www.cprogramming.com/
    http://www.codecademy.com/#!/exercises/4
    http://www.dummies.com/how-to/computers-software/programming/cplusplus.html

    YOUTUBE:
    http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5dyu9y0EV0cSvGtbBtHw_w

    TEXTBOOKS/BOOK:
    C++ For Dummies
    Jumping Into C++ (E-book from cprogramming.com)
    C++ For Everybody
    Introduction to C++ Programming

    Now, I know it may not be a lot. But this is all I had as I learned and taught myself. When it comes to programming, books, guides, and videos can only teach you so much. You have to go through trial and error, practice, and make basic to complex programs using everything you know.

    A tip from me though: ALWAYS have comments throughout your program to explain what you are doing and why. It will help you find your problems, keep you or another reader informed of what each aspect of the program is supposed to do, and it will also remind you what the program was intended to do for future references.
