I want to learn C++ or C, to make Wii homebrew apps and such.
Should I start with Visual Basics?
visual basic? it's different from c and c++
Oh I mean Visual Studio C++
Or should i stick to gold old actionscript for flash computer games.
We have a topic for this. Reading the link in this post specifically would be a pretty good idea.
Visual Studio is just the program you use to write code and have it converted from human-readable code to native binary code. Which such program you start using is relatively unimportant (however using an updated one that is still supported such as Visual Studio is a very good idea).
I just started attempting to learn some basics of C++ a few days ago actually.
I've been using the CodeBlocks IDE, it's open-source, cross-platform and seems to be one of the most popular IDEs. It's done everything I wanted to do so far.
If you're looking for tutorials then the 'official' one has been very informative for me. If you're more of a quick read here and there guy then you should look at buying C++ Primer Plus by Stephen Prata or Effective C++ by Scott Meyers.
You may find that digging into the code of some open-source C++ projects and trying to interpret and analyse things will help. There's a lot of good examples of open-source C++ projects here.
