As you wish, elaboration is complete :D
5 points in C++ I guess I would mean mastered Effective C++, More Effective C++, Effective STL and Modern C++ Design. No?
Well obviously, but I have set the bar far lower. As I have red the SDL tutorials, you really only need base knowledge.
Sorry... no. C++ is much more difficult than both C and C#. I am not a teacher, so I might be biased, but I think a language like Python is better to begin.
And I completely agree. But teaching C++ someone who previously worked with C# is far easier than teaching C++ someone who previously worked with C, that's where I'm coming from.
