I've been writing a course for Pluralsight that covers the fundamentals of C++ - types, expressions, basic syntax stuff, templates, pointers, polymorphism - and it has gone live! During BUILD access to it is free. It uses Visual C++ Express, so you don't need to buy any tools to follow along. Lots of buzz at BUILD about C++, so if you want to see if it's a language you could use, here's a great way to find out.

I have more material coming on this, and some Windows 8 - specific material. This is just background. If you think you need to get up to speed on C++, here's how to do it. Let me know what you think.

Great course! I'm a .NET dev and was looking for a way to delve into C++. One thing though, the "Flow of Control" section should be shown further down in the course. It's the 3rd module of the course and it's already referencing operators and deconstructors and things which haven't yet been covered.

Kate,
I just checked this out. I'm a long time C# developer (and VB6) and have been looking FOR EXACTLY THIS TUTORIAL for a long time. Great job. I can't wait to tackle the next level (if it comes out). You're a natural teacher.

The order problem has been fixed and the last module is uploaded. Enjoy!
