Learning curve for C++ Add-in development.

Hello!
Youtube is full of Python Fusion360 script coding demonstrations. 

Are there some materials that beginner can fallow step-by-step to get C++ Add-in compiled and ran from Fusion?

Will be grateful for any suggestions.

You're correct that most, maybe all, of the video material is Python-specific.  However, it's the same API being using by C++.  In fact, the API is implemented as a C++ API and then a wrapper is created to allow you to call the C++ API from Python.  Because of that, all of the concepts discussed in the videos apply equally to someone developing with C++.  There are some differences in the languages though that cause some differences in how the API is used.  All of this is discussed in the help topic about C++ Specific Issues.  Also, many of the sample programs are provided in both Python and C++ versions.
