    Hi All

    I would like learn C++ from scratch, no other programming experience. I have extensive financial planning background (economics, financial markets, managed investments, banking, financial analysis using Excel, and a bit of options trading experience, etc). Used to be good at maths during my early days.

    I would like to use C++ for High Frequency Trading but I have no idea where to start.

    Timewise - I have about 12 months or so to be compete in C++, not necessarily an expert. Prefer to do it part time, I have about 4 or so hours a day. Budget is flexible, happy to look at all options. Still go a few brain cells left, age on the other side of 40.

    I just don't know where to start, colleges, books/materials, ideas!!! ideas!!! please.

    Thanks for your help

    Gogas :confused:

    I would recommend "C++ For Dummies." The books are very thorough and very easy to read. Something else I would look into is checking out the C++ section of the forum, be sure to read up on some tutorials posted by the other members and you should get the hang of some of the basic stuff.

    I hope this helped!

    Hello Gogas,

    I am a student of the University of Advancing Technology, and I am currently participating in a class assignment where we are asked to browse certain programming forums and post a response to questions. I noticed your question and remembering that I was in your position not too long ago I thought I could give you some pointers on places to look when you are just getting started.

    Websites:
    CProgramming.com/begin.html (A section devoted to beginners)
    CPlusPlus.com (A database of information, as well as forums)
    CodeGuru.com/forums (More forums)
    3DBuzz.com (A website with video tutorials, I found this one particularly helpful)

    Books:
    C++ for Dummies (As mentioned above)
    C++ How to Program (This is the textbook we are using for class, very helpful)
    Beginning C++ (I have heard good things about, though I haven't read it myself)

    I hope that you find at least some of these resources useful. I know that I have.

    there are tons of books/tutorials
    but basicallt i always found complete references and the dummy books are the most informative and noob friendly :D
    and learning C++ as a complete begginer is really realy good because you can grasp a good amount of concepts though the language unlike using VB :D
