I want to learn how to code desktop apps but only find web development tutorials.
As many of you here I’m looking to learn to code on my freetime. In the future I can see a possible career transition or at the least an added value to my current career path, I’m a Creative Director doing motion design and animation.
My areas of interest are mostly desktop apps (most likely graphics or video apps), plugin development for said apps, development of workflow and automation tools and possibly game development.
From what I’ve read a lot of those areas use C/C++ or frameworks like OpenGL, CUDA, DirectX, GLSL, etc… The problem is most of the training I find online is web development related and does not seem very useful for what I want to do.
I know a lot of programming workflow and code logic transfers across languages, so all knowledge is useful. But how can I direct my learning path to my areas of interest? Not only how to learn the languages, but also how to learn the design paradigms and structuring of programs like these.
Do you know of any good resources for learning these languages/frameworks? Do you have any advice on how to structure my learning?
Thank you in advance.
