Getting Started

The C++ Wiki is a game design/programming community which teaches absolute beginners how to make games using C++. The people who write the tutorials, articles, lists, faqs, and documentation were once absolute novices, just like you.

We Were Absolute Beginners Too

Everyone at the C++ Wiki remembers how difficult it was to get started creating games and want to use our experience to help you learn to build games as quickly and as easily as possible. After our first year online, we've proved there's a better way to get started and quickly become an advanced programmer. Perhaps one day, you too will become a regular member of the C++ Wiki and be the one writing the tutorials, or on your way to making your best game ever.
