In this lesson, our instructor Alvin Sylvain gives an introduction to getting started. He starts by discussing how to acquire a C++ compiler for Windows, IDE and others, along with acquiring an editor and setting up MinGW. He then walks you through everybody's first program: 'Hello World.' He then moves on to basic program structure, compiling, linking, running, build tools, and some quick notes on variable declaration and character arrays.
