A thorough introduction to modern C++ is available here:

Basic Modern C++

The tutorial includes are some advanced C++ features that are not necessary for getting started. For now, we recommend that you focus on lessons 1-9, 12 and 14.

If you want to do a deeper dive into C++, you can find a very thorough reference guide here:

This is not necessary for this tutorial, but is very useful to keep bookmarked for future reference.
