As you can see, i'm new to all of this and whatnot. I've been quietly observing this forum for a week or so now... and figured I'd actualy ask for some guidance on what books to buy to start teaching myself some basics.
What is a few good books to learn C++?
What is a few good books to learn php?
Note; I've tried to look for myself, there is just soo many books out there, it's kind of difficult to make a decision on which to try. I've bought 2 already, and they tend to ramble for 200 pages about what php is, and it's uses, but barley teach any of the actual coding to you.
Just so you know why I ask -
I want to learn php for personal uses, since I enjoy web development(at least what I've seen of it from highschool classes).
I want to learn some basics of C++, assuming I'm going to be using it when I go to college for programming.
