I have looked at the source code some programs written in C++ before such as tic tac toe game and a keylogger and I just think "how will I ever learn what this crap means" lol.
I dont see how its possible to remember so much syntax and remembering when it would be used and why.
I would like to know from you professionals did you literally learn by doing these small tutorials and then thinking "Let me see if I can do this or change that and see what happens"
Downloading open source programs, reading them, changing them and getting them to do slightly different things?
I really want to learn but I think the most important thing is finding a good book or online website because if im learning stuff but not really making a program then ill lose intrest fast. What do you recomend?
