I was just wondering, as a past VB/VB.NET programmer for a few years, I am looking at getting into C++ as I need to keep my brain ticking over now that I have finished University and to be honest, it feels fucking weird not having any work to do.
I have chosen, alongside studying the basics of chemistry (as it was my favourite subject alongside History, but I was crap at maths back them) to also look at a programming language - settling on C++.
If somebody could enlighten me as to a good, GUI/n00b-friendly compiler that I could get started on that would be great. With VB and VB.NET it was pretty straightforward in terms of compiling suites, but it seems there are quite a few choices for C/C++
Also if you have any tips or resources, feel free to share. I've been torrenting a few ebooks and each night I spend an hour or so reading up on these subjects, so all input is greatly appreciated and will not go to waste.
Many thanks :hai:
