C++ Programming is so much fun

P: n/a
C++ Programming is going great, Cin and Cout ..... lol

There are many books that are available to become a advanced programmer.

What books would you recommend?

Amazon.com has too many to choose from?

Of course it all means what you mean by advanced. This guy's Amazon list
of C++ books seem pretty good and it corresponds to what I would call
advanced C++.

Warning many of these books will still be using cin and cout, doesn't
stop them being advanced however.

First of all, there's no Cin and Cout in standard C++ alone. Perhaps you
mean cin and cout from <iostream>?

It takes more than just reading to become an advanced programmer. If you
are looking for a programming book, be more specific on which area of
programming you are targeting because there is very few books that talk
about everything in programming.

If you are looking for C++ programming language books then the following
list:

Stroustrup, B. The C++ programming language, special edition
Josuttis, N. The C++ standard library: a tutorial and reference
Meyers, S. Effective C++, 3rd edition.

may be a good starter.

Except for one that imo doesn't belong in that list
at all -- K&R2 (a good book, but it's not about C++)

Yep, I am using the Stroustrup, B. The C++ programming language, special
edition eBook., and the Visual Studio.NET IDE. The day I am an advanced
C++ programmer, I will be in a very enviable position to STARTUP. ;-)

How much time does it take to get to the level to begin writing software? By
allocating all my free spare time, and making huge sacrifices I will get
there sooner than you expect?

What is an 'advanced C++ programmer' and how will you know when you
become one ?

What do you plan to 'STARTUP' and why should I envy you ?

I hope your code will be more understandable.

Boycott Amazon. They did ... something, once. Use the competitions' sites.

Depends on your employeer. I went through a few C++ tutorials and read
up on a basic beginners book, then started maintaining code a week
later. Granted, I had previous programming experience in higher-level
languages, but being a former programmer moving to C++ allows you to
have the functional knowledge of how program / functions work and then
just learning the C++ method of trying to accomplish the same goal /
algorithms.

As far as how long til you write new code: probably at least a month
after you've been fixing already written code, if not much longer.
