So hey, I'm learning C++ for a pretty specific reason (It's practically required for any serious game design, as I know people in the industry), and I was wondering what your preferred way of learning C++ is? Like, not really looking for "Learn this instead" comments, I'm legit just looking for the easiest and most intuitive ways people have for learning C++.
I plan to learn Python once I'm at least making good progress with C++, but I already have a good way to learn that (which I can't use for C++, unfortunately), and that's CodeAcademy (which i love).
I think your best bet after getting the basics down is to do little projects. Since you're interested in GD starting with OpenGL tutorials isn't a bad idea.
Good idea! I didn't think of that at all. I'll look those up.

There's the book Thinking in C++ which is good.
Also cplusplus.com has some tutorials and a good reference.
The MSDN has the same. Don't discount Microsoft, they maintain amazing documentation not just related to their system specific functions.
Also, dream in code is a great community for help and has a stickied list of example projects and places to learn and books.
Since you're interested in game development, there are good resources here.
Thanks for the resources! I'll check them all out.
