Well I have been trying to get started with C++ and it was a very grueling process. So I wanted to help you get started easier. First of all try not to watch the videos until you know more C++ because they are just confusing and very advanced.
So go here to do the right tutorial!
Now C++ is a very hard language, you don’t get any intellasense and you have to spell everything exactly as it is named unlike c# and vb so that is a little tricky. You also have to build way more often and to specify a class of an object you have to use -> instead of a period which is rather annoying. So C++ for me is more of a hobby because you can still use the processing far better and it is really neat.
On the topic of programming let me introduce to Greenshot which is a open source screen shot editor. Which is cool cause you can write plugins for it and it looks pretty good too. I got this information from coding4fun here. It is pretty cool actually. So check it out.
