Hi Tom,

There are several good development environments for Windows, but my all time favorite is certainly Microsoft's Visual C++. I'm a bit of a Linux junkie these days, but for beginning development, I'll recommend it every time. It features really cool stuff like auto-indentation, and color-coding (very handy if you're just getting started), and it's pretty easy to manage small to medium sized projects. You can download it for free here:

Let me know if you have trouble getting it running, or if you don't like it and would prefer a different environment. I'm always happy to help.

Good luck,

I can answer most beginner and intermediate level questions. My strengths are various algorithms and data manipulation. My background might be best suited to anything from basic CPP and file I/O, to algorithms involving recursion, hashing, binary search trees, and so on. I've done some tutoring in my free time, both online and in person. I also have quite a bit of debugging experience. I have some experience with game code, specifically using D3D based game engines. I only speak English, but I believe I do so very well :). I'm completely unable to answer questions about coding drivers for hardware, and many library specific issues.


I've studied CPP for roughly four years now, with a combined eight years of object oriented programming experience. I have worked professionally in the field for about a year. I have also had some tutoring experience in CPP and C#
