I am wondering if it is worth learning C++. There are only so many "dos style" application you can make before wanting to start with a GUI. Wouldn't it just be a lot easier for me to learn Delphi or VB instead?

Whats are your views on this?

It's a bit difficult just to say, learn C++, learn Delphi, or learn VB, without knowing your background and goals.

If you already know C, then it's probably best to proceed to C++ or C#.

If you already know Pascal, then Delphi is probably the next step.

If you already know Basic, then go on to Visual Basic.

If you want to learn a new, platform-independent language, go for Java.

You know any good tutorials for starting off?

I don't know, but I'm sure that you can find anything you need at http://java.sun.com/

Even c/c++ is not used these days for application development, but i strongly recommend you to learn this. One cannot climb mountain without feet. C/C++ provides good base to your concepts

There is no easy way to learn; but there are some proven. If you are new to programming then you should first start with object oriented concepts. The book "Introduction to OOP Using C++" by Peter Muller is good to start. Then I would suggest you to do small experiments on computes as you read. Object Oriented Programming with C++, by E. Balaguruswamy, and is much easier to grasp as a beginner.

Hey...,
Its glad to see that,if you have good knowledge of C++ then why you want to learn VB. Its nothing to get in another Platform, Try to make some games in C++ Like chess and Othello.

i think you need to set your goal.
What do you implement or develop next.
and learn what's best for it.
such as 3D graphics (like me) C++ (for speed and high performance )
or C# (for ease to dev and many support tools)

If you want to start with a GUI, I'd recommend a different language to learn first.

Perhaps Java, using something such as: BlueJ
My manga collection includes:
5 years worth of Monthly Shonen Jump, Bleach 1-17, Death Note 1-3, Death Note Novel, Rurouni Kenshin 1-5, Hikaru No Go 1-6, One Piece 1-10, Shaman King 1-14, Dr Slump 1-12, Black Cat 1-3, Knights of Zodiac 1-4, Dragon Ball 1-16 (Complete), YuYu Hakusho 1-9, Flame of Recca 1-24, Sandland, Claymore 1-11 & Naruto 1-3.

My anime collection is much bigger including:
the entire Naruto series, entire Black Cat series, Claymore, entire Death Note series, YuYu Hakusho, Hunter X Hunter, Rurouni Kenshin, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Hikaru No Go, Blood+, entire Naruto Shippuuden Series, One Piece, Bleach & many more which I can't recall at the moment.

NOTE: All my manga are legit, all my anime is fansubbed :D

Visual C# or .NET would probably be best to learn using a GUI at first.
They're both extremely simple to learn and you only need to click an item in the form to bring up its piece of code so you don't need to look through all your source code for the correct place to fit it.

Panarchy, I see your an anime fan. You ever seen Onegai Teacher?

By the way, I have no idea how that got posted three times! :huh:
