C++: Effective Object-Oriented Software Construction: Concepts, Practices, Industrial Strategies and Practicesby Kayshav Dattatri
Synopses & Reviews
Learn to program the way commercial developers do!
C++: Effective Object Oriented Software Construction, Second Edition is crafted to help you understand the C++ object-oriented paradigm in depth. It enables you to translate object concepts to practical solutions, no matter what software development environment you encounter. This edition is updated for the new ANSI C++ standard. The book introduces the fundamentals of object-oriented design/programming in the context of real world C++ software development, presenting proven strategies for using C++ to engineer elegant, high-quality software as quickly and efficiently as possible. You'll learn about:
In this book, the author reveals the strategies professional developers have learned to maximize code and design reuse. You'll learn how to manage the extensive "housekeeping" that's associated with effective C++ software development. Then, you'll walk through detailed, real-world comparisons of the strengths and weaknesses of the major object-oriented languages. In addition, this book uses UML (Unified Modeling Language) to illustrate its design examples.
Whether you're a new programmer, a programmer familiar with procedural languages, or a C++ programmer who isn't using object-oriented techniques to their full potential, C++: Effective Object Oriented Software Construction will help you achieve your most critical goals as a developer.
