put simply, both microsoft visual studio and dev c++ are compilers in which you write code.
Its entirely personal preference which you use but personally I find microsoft visual studio has a lot more useful features than dev c++. Neither program are designed or meant to teach you c++ they are purely a medium for creating software.

I would go with devC++, visual studio contains alot of MS proprietry stuff so if you are looking to learn PURE C++ use devC++. You can then code for other platforms rather than being locked into MS

I do agree with both of these comments, only suggested visual studio because it is more common. I use it because my university does too (and my copy was free, never would buy it - way too expensive). I use dev c++ on my linux machine. Even eclipse is worth a look if you like more graphical syntax error highlighting and such.
