Programming Language Tutorials

Mike's Technique

Some people ask me how I started and continue to learn programming. My response is this: get a good tutorial and get a good book. The two go hand-in-hand. Usually, the on-line tutorials you will find on the Internet are plain text and very brief. However, brief is not bad. Even though you may not understand everything 100%, it gives you background information about what you will be learning. My approach to learning any new language is first read a "brief" tutorial, then read a book. This way, when I get to new concepts in the book, I will know what they are talking about and I don't get confused. Also, see my page about how to get started programming.

So far, this method is working for me. I have done it with C, C++, and I am currently doing it with win32 API and DirectX. I don't know if this will work for everyone, but if you have no clue on how to start learning a language, I recommend this approach.

Below are some tutorials I thought were helpful:
Microsoft DirectX Website
Although the Microsoft DirectX tutorials that come with the DirectX SDK (software development kit) are not excellent, they do give you some idea of how to use the features in DirectX. This is then reinforced by reading a DirectX book, such as Windows Game Programming for Dummies.
