You are familar with the VB6 application development which are
deadly event driven.C++ is a hybrid programming language where
you also can write event driven applications.for a example QT
/wxWidget have RAD tools which like VB6,But you can't start at
there because you lack the basic C++ core knowledge.And also you
lacks the STL knowledge,where most of 99% of industry projects
uses STL.So in other words the VB6 knowledge won't help much
and you need to start from the scratch.
