|I find myself interested in implementing an OGR driver (http://www.gdal.org/ogr_drivertut.html). But, this task dictates knowing some C++. My normal approach would be to try and cowboy through, and look at some existing code. I'll still be doing this, but I also figured it would be nice to learn some first principles.|
I keep reading HN comments that suggest writing C++ code has become more pleasant in recent years, and so I'd like some recommendations for how to learn some C++ that embodies these niceties.
I'm not a total novice programmer, but I am much more familiar with FP than OOP, so something that starts off fairly gently is probably best.
