So I've dabbled in code for a couple of years and recently decided to go back to school for it. Chances are the curriculum will consist of Java and/or Python, but I'm really interested in learning C/C++. My question is where to start. I've got two books, "Professional C++" and "Beginning C++ Through Game Programming." I've been bouncing back and forth between both. I've got no experience programming in a group, so Github is new to me. I'm being told I should find a project there I can chip in on - that or start my own. I'm just a little flustered over where to begin. Any ideas?
