    A lot of what you are looking for are described and maintained in the CPP Core Guidelines which are a great starting point. You can enable some tooling to help point out when you have violated the Core Guidelines, such as Microsoft's GSL and clang-tidy.

  • Can't do anything right please take it easy on me.
    I recommend you use www.learncpp.com as a tutorial. It does a good job at teaching modern C++. Use https://en.cppreference.com/w/ as a language reference. Also, have a look at the C++ Core Guidelines when you’re feeling more comfortable with the language. It goes over many of the dos and don’ts of C++, and helps guide you to write good code.
  • Help me i am begginer
    Find a coding standard and stick to it. I personally recommend the C++ Core Guidelines. It goes over the many dos and don’ts of modern C++.

    www.learncpp.com is a good free resource, and you can use https://en.cppreference.com/w/ as a language reference. The C++ Core Guidelines can help guide you in using modern C++ effectively.
