I’m an experienced, professional C++ developer looking to learn UE4. I’ve spent a few weeks now going through BP tutorials to try and get a broad view of how things in Unreal are supposed to fit together and want to start digging more into the C++ side, since that’s where I expect to spend most of my time.
My problem is that almost all the resources I can find for learning UE4 are for blueprints and non-programmers. The C++ resources I can find are almost exclusively things like “learn C++ with Unreal” and assume no C++ experience. I’ve seen “The Unreal Engine Developer Course” on Udemy by Ben Tristem recommended a lot, but wording like “learn C++, the powerful industry standard language from scratch” translates to me as “you’re going to spend half your time in this course bored out of your mind.” I really want some resources that assume advanced (or even intermediate) knowledge of C++ with little to no knowledge of Unreal. The little Unreal C++ code I have seen looks very heavy on Unreal-specific macros, so I’d love to see some tutorials that actually talk about what’s going on under the hood with those instead of glossing over it with “just type this in, you don’t need to worry about how it works right now.”
I don’t need any resources to be free, and I’d probably prefer text resources to video (either through a website or a book), but I’m finding it hard to find resources aimed at my situation.
