Sooooo, I’ve just finished watching these awesome C++ tutorial videos by Bucky Roberts, also known as thenewboston.
His C++ playlist contains 73 episodes and I highly recommend them. Bucky’s humor makes the lessons very entertaining
and he really explains concepts simply.
If you have never heard of Bucky before, check out his website thenewboston and
his youtube channel. You will find tutorials on a variety of topics such
as Java, PHP, Python, Game Development and much more.
Also read about his teaching philosophy here.

Salman Khan gave a talk at TED where he talked about the KhanAcademy:
Khan became famous for making videos on several topics, such as math, finance, biology etc.
He even received a 2 million dollar prize from google and is supported by
the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Today’s school education has a big flaw: The assumption that every student is learning at the same pace.
With those videos and the monitoring system offered by the KhanAcademy you allow every student to learn at his own pace.
As Bill Gates mentions after the TED talk this is the future of education.
