learn C or C++ - best methods?
I want to learn computer vision using specifically C or C++. I am a pretty strong coder, but I'm used to high level languages like python, etc.
To this end, I need to first learn the language. I don't want to jump right into image processing with a language I don't understand. I also learn best with practical examples.
- what resources can you recommend? good tutorials or practice projects?
- Best IDE on mac os x for this? I'm thinking Eclipse.
- focus on C or C++?
Thanks for your advice
The best way in my opinion to learn a language is to try and answer other peoples questions about it like here or on comp.lang.c, comp.lang.c++
The reason being - even if you are correct - someone with more experience may suggest an alternative you never knew about.
Oh and if you are wrong - there shall be no mercy from those that know more ;-)
Also when people ask questions it forces you to learn parts of the language you may never visit because you had no need to.
