I have decided to embark on a journey to learn C++. It's something i've wanted to do for a while and in fact started doing a few years ago but then things got crazy at work and time was not something i had so it got left behind.
Lately i've once again gotten the urge to learn this language. I'm not a programmer by any means. I've dabbled with python in the past and have used it for a few things but always just by learning specific things as i needed them. My want for learning C++ is purely that a want not a need. The choice of C++ is not based on any real reason other than it's popular. I might end up moving to Python if C++ proves too challenging. I'm assuming Python is easier to learn here but that might prove wrong as well.
Anyways for now i will be using the tutorials found here to start my journey. I will also do my best to document the journey here. Both for me to have quick reference to look back on without having to re-read chapters and for anyone who wants to follow my progress.
I don't have any specific need to learn to program (like i wont make it my career) but i do have some random ideas that i might turn into actual things if this pans out.
Anyways that's all for now. Feel free to follow along at the git repo above. I will also blog about any bigger milestones in my journey.
