I can program with C++ though I'm just a novice at it. I'm using Microsoft's Visual Studio Express 2010 but I don't entirely understand what I'm doing. I can use a library after a great order of frustration but I would like to make this easier.
Are there any web based guides or books to using an IDE such as VSE 2010? If so can somebody give me a link? I think knowing how to use this thing would be very helpful in learning to use other IDE's. I've looked at Microsoft's Website a bit but Microsoft does not document anything very well anymore and there's a billion links to sort through.
Maybe it would be a good idea to try a different language and learn from there. I knew Visual Basic .Net at one point though I haven't used it in years. I'd just like to make something complete and useful, something I can show my friends. I don't think C++ fulfils that very easily.
I wasn't sure where to put this, there doesn't seem to be an accurate forum for it. I just thought you guys would know about this and could be helpful.
