    Question Best complete C++ tutorial series on YouTube?

    I'm looking into writing games, and I thought I'd start learning C++, now don't assume I'm wanting to write games next week as you'd be wrong, I talking in one, two or three years when I'm fluent in C++ or at least I feel confident enough to attempt at writing games or learning OpenGL and such.

    Before all of that I'm going to need some tutorials, I've come across the very good set of tutorials on the website http://www.learncpp.com/ in which I've read though the first section, however I'm more interested in video tutorials and I came across a series by "CodingMadeEasy", the series as a whole is nine hours which I feel is a little short so I skipped to the "last" video to read a comment which was posted eleven months ago asking when will the next video be released, with the reply "next week" which presumably didn't happen.

    I'd really appreciate it if somebody could link me to a complete YouTube series which will hopefully get me enough knowledge to maybe start on OpenGL or go on to C++11.

    Actually it may be better to start writing games right away. When it comes to coding skill goal oriented hands-on learning is way more efficient than unfocused bulk learning.

    On the other hand programming isn't just about mastering a programming language and the relevant APIs. To become a good programmer and grasp what you're doing you need a general science/engineering education.

    Although not video tutorials, there a couple of decent books about learning to program c++ via game programming which may be of interest.

    For youtube tutorials, Buckys c++ tutorials have been suggested. There are 73 (seventy three) videos in the series. This is a link to the first

    Thumbs up Re: Best complete C++ tutorial series on YouTube?

    Thank you for every reply, they've all been of some help. I'm going to work my way through TheNewBoston's series, then purchase a C++ Game Programming book, and maybe work my way through the http://www.learncpp.com/ tutorials if needs be.
