This weekend I started to evaluate C++. I tried C++ about 18 years ago and I was confused a lot at that time, not only because of C++ but also because Object-oriented programming was new to me at that time. I never had a need for C++ in the past and now I wanted to try some Qt stuff which needs some knowledge of C++.

I believe I will not develop software in C++ in the near future but I must say it has really a lot of nice features. Why I am writing this Blog post not because I am in love with C++ now but because I want to make you aware of a very nice C++ tutorial found at The tutorial is written very clear and has examples for everything. It took me just some few hours to understand how C++ works.

As IDE I used Qt Creator since I tried Qt stuff. I don't like the interface but for going on fast without configuration it was very useful to me. If I would start some C++ project I would prefer Anjuta, Code::Blocks or KDevelop.

Many thanks to the authors of that nice tutorial! Well done... ;)
