Books and literature to properly learn C++

Hello Community. Hope you’re all doing OK.

I’m starting to develop some applications using JUCE. Most tutorials have been extremely helpful. I have programming background since I’m a sound engineer and developped apps specially in Unity (C#). However, I’d like to learn proper C++, since I haven’t got any experience in thins like pointers, references, lock and lock-free architectures, etc. My goal is to be able to create complex application using these low-level concepts. I know it could take many years and a lot of hard work, but I know that having the right tools and information to learn will take me there. What books, courses or websites do you recommend for becoming a C++ expert and being able to deal with all those low-level concepts in order to create fast JUCE apps?

The Cherno on YouTube. Just watch through his entire c++ series at your own pace. He has a way of simplifying the core concepts really well.

After you’re done with the basics, you’ll need to start thinking in terms of threads if you’ll be dealing with audio programming.

In terms of books this list should give you a great overview of what is available and generally well received. Another great resource is the back to basics videos which you can find on the CppCon YouTube Channel.

Agree with @anthony-nicholls, even today, I still find the back-to-basics on YouTube are a good reminder of the simple, yet foundational aspects of C++

Inspired by this I decided to open source a GitHub repo with a bunch of links and resources I’ve found helpful over the years.
