117. marinir seo jasa seo Sun, 14 Mar 2010 23:12

Just went through the first tutorial and I feel like I have a fighting chance of having confidence in the next tutorial.

116. fitflop cheap Thu, 11 Mar 2010 11:11

This is agreat tool for student to learn c++

115. Bottega Veneta Distinctive Manner Sun, 07 Feb 2010 22:18

So far so good. I'm just getting started. I'm reading some book and watching videos. I'm trying to saturate myself with as much info as I can. This is definitely holding my interest. Can't wait to see the next installment.

114. ¥ë¥¤¥ô¥£¥È¥óؔ²¼¥¹©`¥Ñ©`¥³¥Ô©` Fri, 29 Jan 2010 21:05

great way of teaching!!!

thanks a lot!!!

112. Canada Goose Hellgrau Herren Tue, 12 Jan 2010 19:27

This looks very promising for the first time in the learning of C++ I have struggled for years with it and programming for that matter. Thank you for doing this, it looks like there is still hope, at times I just stop trying and go back to C++ a year later ;)

111. anonymous Thu, 31 Dec 2009 05:05

Great Video!!! It's easy to understnd!! Thanx!!!

110. anonymous Tue, 22 Dec 2009 10:29

This is a very simple to understand method to teach a complex subject or concept. Excellent approach by using simple words and examples the a user can related to something in real life.

Thanks for a job great done!

109. anonymous Tue, 15 Dec 2009 04:56

Looks interesting. I'll have to go through a little more so that I can sign up. Good effort. :)

108. anonymous Wed, 02 Dec 2009 08:52

it's been a great help to me

107. anonymous Thu, 26 Nov 2009 17:48

nice one, this video is totally different from other videos .

106. anonymous Mon, 23 Nov 2009 13:00

Very easy to understand, this first video!

Thank you

105. anonymous Sat, 21 Nov 2009 11:51

Good job, I will watch more

104. anonymous Fri, 20 Nov 2009 16:31

excellent introduction

103. anonymous Sun, 15 Nov 2009 08:43


102. anonymous Sat, 14 Nov 2009 23:57

Thank you very much!

I recently started out with C programming in school and tried to "bring the work home"..

It suddenly became a lot harder without a teacher, not only because he tells me what to do and what i'm doing wrong but also as a motivator.

You are an excellent replacor my friend! Ever thought of picking up teaching? This stuff is superbly pedagogic

101. anonymous Thu, 12 Nov 2009 16:19

It's good to have a spoon feed like this because reading books is simply too time consuming for me. The only drawback I see is the video is not very clear. If we could have a higher resolution, it'd be great.

100. anonymous Tue, 10 Nov 2009 09:49

Excellent intro for newbies!! :)

99. anonymous Wed, 04 Nov 2009 02:21

i am a noob i am trying to learn everything i can about the c++ language and i am hoping this site will help with all of that

thank you for taking time to help us learn and not being nasty like alot of others.

97. anonymous Fri, 30 Oct 2009 04:57

1 down 48 to go, so far so good :)

96. anonymous Thu, 29 Oct 2009 07:00


95. anonymous Sat, 24 Oct 2009 20:31

94. anonymous Sat, 24 Oct 2009 16:54

I think its good newbie tutorial about general programming concepts

93. anonymous Sat, 24 Oct 2009 12:05

thank you my friend turned me onto this from his digg. I'm taking c++ at Boston university this spring 2010 and want to get ahead of the class so I have somewhat an idea. thank you for all your hard work. We all need to start somewhere and for me this is a big help! thank thank thank

Now, I want more. :)

Thank you!!

88. anonymous Sat, 19 Sep 2009 14:59

I took C++ in the college and worked in IT. Know that I am laid off, I am back to programming. This time I am serious about it. I ned to learn C++ and I will with your help.

87. anonymous Sat, 19 Sep 2009 14:50

So far so good but this is only video number one so time will tell. Thanks in advance for all of your time and effort.

86. anonymous Thu, 17 Sep 2009 14:14

I found this while looking for something else.

Excellent video I think these are going to change my life!

Thank you!

85. anonymous Sat, 12 Sep 2009 13:44

i m very poor in c/c++ plzz help me

84. anonymous Sat, 12 Sep 2009 08:22

good first video thanks

Great video series. I learned C and C++ in college, so I'm highly critical of this kind of instructional material. I've been look for something like this to share with others who would interested in learning. I've watched the first ~30 videos so far and am very pleased with it. The concepts are presented far too slow to really engage me, so I have them on in the back ground while I work (as a programmer). I have cURL'ed down all 45 of them (1G+) to burn to disk to share.

In the future I'd love to recreate these myself, but with a "C programming for the PHP hacker" slant. There are so many PHP hacks out there now that I think it would be a great angle of approach. Assuming that the viewer had a grasp of basic concepts (like: for, while, variable scope, etc.) should allow me to teach the material in half the time.

Major Kudos to you for taking on the task of bootstrapping the complete newb. I don't think I would have the patients to do so, or even have the imagination to know what the newb doesn't already know. Great work!

82. anonymous Wed, 26 Aug 2009 17:48

its very elpful to learn

81. anonymous Wed, 26 Aug 2009 08:08

Haven't seen one yet, you won't let me start

57. anonymous Fri, 24 Jul 2009 11:11

Great idea and thanks for sharing and spending your time and efforts producing a pretty good tutorial on C++. Haven't seen anything other than the tutorial 1, but if it is indicative of the quality of the others, I'm I and others will get a lot out of it.

56. anonymous Fri, 24 Jul 2009 08:44

Excellent video, it was very easy to understand and it was a good introduction to what a program is and the basics of a computer language

55. anonymous Thu, 23 Jul 2009 18:28

Very good job, hold on in this theme

Thank you

54. anonymous Wed, 22 Jul 2009 17:56

Very interesting, must have more!

48. anonymous Mon, 13 Jul 2009 13:39

These videos are amazing and of a great benefit to me...

keep on :)

47. anonymous Sun, 12 Jul 2009 02:27


46. anonymous Sat, 11 Jul 2009 14:18

You are correct! It is easier to begin to understand Some of the concepts in C++ by visual means. After seeing other videos I began to grasp some of the concepts. The reason would seem to be it is as if you are in a classroom. When you hear the instructor explain the meaning behind a Processs. You will understand that prtocess morethan if you read it in a book. But After I learn enough I will go back to the books for more.So that I can understand finally.I have 4 or 5 books reading did not much good when the concepts are obscured by programming language onlky an advanced person will know. You cannot become advanced until you learn the basic concepts.NewbyOne

45. anonymous Fri, 10 Jul 2009 20:05

Great introduction.

I was thinking of discontinuing my pursuit in

c++ and/or computer science but your

video is keeping me hooked.

thanks :)

44. anonymous Fri, 10 Jul 2009 12:39

well done!

I wished all my teachers were like you.

43. anonymous Thu, 09 Jul 2009 01:23

42. anonymous Wed, 08 Jul 2009 12:30

Amazing so far!

41. anonymous Mon, 06 Jul 2009 14:24

Clear and easy to understand

nice intro so far.

39. anonymous Wed, 01 Jul 2009 22:03

Great start. The movement among the windows seemed a little "busy", but a great start. I can't wait to watch more of these screen casts.

38. anonymous Wed, 01 Jul 2009 10:20

Video Tutorials format is the best form to learn. Its great to put this together. Let me view more lessons to comment on the quality.

36. anonymous Tue, 30 Jun 2009 10:38

Thanks for sharing your videos. This one is very good and has peeked my interest in the possibility of me finally learning c++.

I have just started . Thank you so much for making your knowledge available.

Can the resolution be improved. May be if you use WebEx recorder ( free ) and advise the users use webex player, it might give a near perfect image of your desktop. It's too early to make any comment now. The above is my 2 cents. Thank you so much again.

34. anonymous Fri, 26 Jun 2009 02:43

so far so good

33. anonymous Thu, 25 Jun 2009 02:18

c and c++

32. anonymous Tue, 23 Jun 2009 21:51

loving your vids wanting to learn c++ for a long time but really cant afford the cds thanks a lot

if you can do java that would be really nice as well

31. anonymous Tue, 23 Jun 2009 12:34

this is a brilliant way for me to restart with programming after leaving my remedial understanding behind after college, thank you

30. anonymous Fri, 19 Jun 2009 01:39

thanks, realy good. now i will watch the rest

29. anonymous Mon, 15 Jun 2009 22:55

i can code in mel and python but i did not know how the programing worked under the hood thats cool im going to like this sight

28. anonymous Thu, 11 Jun 2009 20:25

Very clear and concise! All in all, perfect 8 min. intro, great job!

27. anonymous Thu, 11 Jun 2009 13:13

very good tutorial, thanks a lot!

26. anonymous Tue, 09 Jun 2009 10:00

Thanks for the intro - maybe you could make your language a little more inclusive by using generic references that are not gender based - like giving an assistant or a child instructions rather than a cleaning lady, and referring to people rather than guys - it is important to give all newbies confidence and not make them feel stereotyped. I appreciate the effort and intent that you have put into the video, and only offer this suggestion as a possible improvement.

25. anonymous Mon, 08 Jun 2009 10:00

lovely vid, very patiently explained, clear voice, excellent screen. Thank you!

24. anonymous Mon, 01 Jun 2009 06:34

Thank you for these VERY informative videos!! I've always wanted to start programming, but people are mean about me asking questions so I have been turned away from learning. You have helped me immensely!

16. anonymous Fri, 22 May 2009 07:32

So far, so good. The vicdeo could be little longer but bugger cannot be chosers. Keep it up, I'm really want to learn c++ and how to program.

Thanks for a nice beginning.

4. anonymous Tue, 24 Mar 2009 21:35

Hello. I just watched the first Noob spoonfed c++ video. Thank you. It looks like what I need. Great work.

Thanks for listening to my suggestion of posting your videos here. Two thumbs up.

Great video! I love to learn something new everyday, and this by far is a great head-start on my daily learning!

Strong start - and some big claims! I do like having some good books to hand --will recommend some C++ ones as your series progresses-- but screencasting does offer a fantastic opportunity for newbies to be lead gently through the strange foreign land. It's great to see someone taking such a comprehensive approach. Will follow with interest.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for antiRTFM
