As a person who knows nothing about programming in any language, would this be a good start for me to teach myself without any programming/coding background?

You might have an easier time trying a free python or Go tutorial to get some of the fundamentals and see if you like it.

Learn Javascript or Python instead.

This bundle of courses seems to have a lot of redundancy between them. I'm sure you can learn the basics just fine with one of these courses but you should probably learn a language based on what types of programs or projects that language and its libraries are generally used to build. If you want to do web design for example, C++ is a terrible choice. If you want to work on AAA video games, C++ is likely what they are using.

I studyed C++ more than 20 years ago. Are people really still using it?

You are better off learning C# especially if you want to get a career in programming since it is used extensively in both the corporate and gaming world.

I wouldn't suggest c++ as your first language, just because there are better options. Like other have suggested, Python is a good choice because it's simpler to learn and gives you good fundamentals. Once you learn one language, then the others languages will be easier to learn.

Also couldn't agree more. Pick the language based off what you want to do with it.

Anyone that just wants to dabble in programming, I always suggest powershell if they are using Windows. Just find a task on your PC that you don't want do manually anymore and write a script for it. Gives you an idea of what it's like to program.

It is still a widely used language. Google and other corporations that implement and develop AI, for instance, use C++ for their backbone.

You could look at freecodecamp.

These days, C++ is limited to either low-latency (gaming and financial) or scientific applications. C++ has very steep learning curve--I've been learning it for 25+ years and am far from being an expert in all its features. Lately, C++ started evolving and is now a much better language than it was in early 2000s. It is now possible to compile C++ to WebAssembly and run it in browsers. AWS support for C++ use in Lambdas is coming. There are still tons of old C++ that will need maintenance for long time.
In short, C++ isn't dead. But whether it should be somebody's first language, it's hard to say. I feel that learning C and/or C++ first, then switching to another language, either JS/Typescript or Python scripting or compiled Go or Rust, is a good path, as it gives an insight of what "modern" languages do behind the scenes.

Has anybody tried to redeem it? I bought it, and now I am trying to redeem it and for every book it is taking me to StackSkill where it is asking me to pay for each one of those. StackSkill has no idea that I have already bought it from StackSocial. Maybe it will take some time before StackSkill gets updated, but they seem to have their own login.

Don't buy this. There are countless free programming tutorials on YouTube and other resources.
