Am happy you understood the first page, atleast there is progress. The Next thing you should do is decide what branch of programming you want to go into. When you have decided post it then WE will then know what to do next...

Just go to university for a computer course e.g computer science, software engineering,
computer Engineering..etc
and get PDF, and join an online forum
because nigeria lecturers only use old coding syntax and oudated pogramming skills....

Re: I Want To Learn Programming. Which Language Should I Start With? by Javanian: 1:35pm On Feb 05, 2013
You don't need JDK to learn C++. JDK would have been usefull if you wanted to learn JAVA.

Go and read those books. This things should be explained there... But still fell free to ask your questions...

Javanian, nice work you are doing, programming no be beans ooo. Maybe it would be nice to break programming down to its essential parts, they are not many are they? If a short comprehensive expansion of this parts could be somehow explained away it would make a lot more sense with less reiterative questions .... By the way I tend to grasp more profoundly after a round of sex or two. It kinda exfoliate emotions leaving behind unclad logic, all you need to suck suck... suckup more info at faster rate, try out cullingus too, it sure sets your mind juggling, multitasking.... wow, tks tks tks.

sad I was just trying to say that it would be beneficial to learn the basic structure of programs in addition to a particular syntax as it will give more versatility to the learner. I might be wrong

Pls guys, I need your help. I wanna start to learn c++ but the IDEs i downloaded are not working(compiling).
Eclipse says: launch failed, no binaries found.
Netbeans7.1 says: no gcc . . . compiler found.

IDEs are not compilers... there is no guarantee that you get a compiler after you download an IDE. I assume you are on windows? you can either go to the gnu website and download the tdmgcc binaries and set your paths on netbeans to reflect their installation folders..

or
you can download codeblocks IDE or devC++ IDE both comes with inbuilt compilers

@javanian, pls what do u mean by get u started, is it that after the training you will still have to learn other things?
Re: I Want To Learn Programming. Which Language Should I Start With? by thiisme: 1:53am On Feb 06, 2013
Thanks LordZouga, I have downloaded both codeblocks and dev++ but the same thing applies.

Well, if what you are talking about is declaring a variable, variable names can change so it could be 'count', 'cout' 'co' or even 'c'

If you want to practice you would need an IDE/text editor and compiler...I'm sure the c++ guys here can help out....

Also, if possible use those youtube videos, you would learn faster from them...

Hello c++ programmers and all other programmers on this thread. Pls help me with steps on how to configure netbeans for c++ or eclipse for c++. The ones I downloaded(codeBlocks and dev++) with the compilers are not fuctioning.
