I have to be honest, I know C/C++ for at least 6 or 7 years now, but I never actually had a programming job.
I mostly learned the C/C++ basics by myself, was then taught a lot of nuances by a friend, and then was re-taught C/C++ at school, which was of course very easy for me. I did not get the degree (it was not oriented towards "pure" programming), but I kept reading stuff and get interested and curious.
I clearly both lack experience and degrees, but I want to try to learn by just reading code that is known to be worth a read.
What code can you advise me ? I'm thinking about quake 3, linux, GCC, Firefox, Chromium, but I honestly don't know if I will learn something valuable from those.
