It’s well known that C/C++ languages are the most dominant programming languages around. As I mentioned in the previous post "Top 10 best applications written in C/C++" that
most of the big software, operating systems, games and other scientific tools and utilities are developed using C/C++.

In this list, I am going to share 50 outstanding websites and web pages which I believe every C or C++ developer should know and bookmark. This list provides direct links to programming source codes along with their description.

Some of you might think that 50 websites are not enough however I have tried to include the best C/C++ source code websites so that you get best source code examples.

If I’ve missed any website that you’ve found helpful, please make sure to mention them in the comments.
