Looking for free (unless profit) C++ Teacher: 12/9/2015 09:51:38

Hi,

I'm looking at doing a project that requires coding. I have no prior knowledge of C++, however I do know basic HTML.

UPDATE: I no longer need to be taught the basics of C++. I am looking for someone who will help me learn how to use the code specifically in Unreal Engine 4 or similiar environments.

You will be duly credited and potentially payed if profit is made.

If no one is able, that's okay. I'll find other means. Thanks in advance.

Dude, C++ is one of the hardest languages to learn. Do Python. :)

C++ is still a good beginner language, though, even with xalloc and whatnot.

That said, if you're working on a project with the aim of making a profit of some sort, and you're not motivated enough to use the resources already at your disposal and self-teach, you're probably not going to make it.

If you're okay with Windows only, you could do it in C#. Much easier to learn than C++. As far as C++ being a learner-language, you typically don't get very far in such courses, just enough to learn fundamental data structures, algorithms, and OOP. But the real power comes from either low-level stuff, bordering on assembler, or really high-level stuff with templates and generic programming, which usually requires learning a library or ten, since you'd be re-inventing the wheel to build up your own from scratch. Typical courses don't usually cover that stuff, AFAIK.

I am doing some C# right now (a beginner) at work. I mostly know Python and SQL. I am also learning Javascript.

Honestly, I think all of them are much easier after learning any other language of a similar type (SQL is much different than say C# or JS as it is a completely different use). You understand what you want to do, even if the syntax is not well known. And syntax is easy to find online (plus a good IDLE like Visual Studio will help you with syntax anyway).

To me, the biggest thing is to have a use for it. Reading a manual on coding is pretty boring after a while (and I say that as a developer). But if you have something to apply it to, that helps a whole lot to peak your interest.


Anyway, I am not at a level to be helping anyone else outside Python or SQL.

I sm self teaching, I also have Visual Studio for learning and Unreal Engine 4 for this project.

The thing I need isn't a teacher as in the school kind of sense, more so someone I can go to with questions about a specific thing and they can show me what to do. (As best as I can explain it.)

I also know some C#, but I don't really need that knowledge.
