By Allen I. Holub
I nearly handed in this publication due to a number of the destructive studies.
Okay, it really is no Code entire, yet this publication is an absolute gem. i've been programming C++ for roughly 6 years now (VB clients be darned, it really is my favourite programming language, interval) and that i was once surprised how a lot I agreed with this author's recommendation.
Yeah, I discovered much from Scott Meyers' canonical "Effective" books. yet what i love approximately this booklet is that it's a no-nonsense, in-your-face, tell-it-like-it-is publication that i feel is key for these wet-behind-the-ears C++ programmers (or these whiners who declare that C++ is just too hard).
It will most likely piss off loads of home windows programmers in addition to he's a bit anti-Microsoft. even though, i'm basically a MFC programmer and
what he says approximately MFC (earlier variations) and home windows programming regularly is actually right.
This ebook is a needs to for each beginner C/C++ programmer. The skilled C/C++ programmers will most likely let you know that they recognize all approximately this, so so much of them will supply it a go. even if, as a skilled C++ programmer, i believe that they're creating a mistake. they should get this booklet at the shelf in addition.
At the very least they could personal loan it to the novices.
