Game programming is demanding. It pushes both programmer and hardware to their limits. But it can also be extremely satisfying. In this chapter, you’ll be introduced to the fundamentals of C++, the standard language for AAA game titles. Specifically, you’ll learn to:
Display output in a console window
Perform arithmetic computations
Use variables to store, manipulate, and retrieve data
Get user input
