I'll recommend this Pluralsight course by Kate Gregory - more because I've seen extracts of this course and the philosophy behind it (teach C++, not 'C with a bit of ++'). And as Pluralsight do a free trial, your daughter can try it for nothing.

Course FAQ

  • Who is this course for?
    This course is aimed at those who have never programmed before.
  • What will I learn in this course?
    Learn how to get the tools to develop in C++ and basics like building and running an application, then discover how to use classes from the C++ Standard Library and how to write and use your own functions and classes.
  • What prerequisites do I need?
    Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with editing text files on your operating system and that's it.
  • What software is required?
    There are text editors that come with your operating system, and then you need a compiler and a linker, and they very often come together.

Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
