Beginning C++ Programming by Richard Grimes gets you started with the exciting world of C++ programming. It forms the basis of programming and covers concepts such as data structures and the core programming language. The book will enable you to write C++ code that uses the standard library, has a level of object orientation, and uses memory safely and effectively.
The main mission of this book is to make you familiar and comfortable with C++. You will finish the book not only being able to write your own code, but more importantly, you will be able to read other projects. It is only by being able to read others’ code that you will progress from a beginner to an advanced programmer. This book is the first step in that progression. The first task is to familiarize you with the structure of C++ projects so you will know how to start reading a project. Next, you will be able to identify the main structures in the language, functions, and classes, and feel confident being able to identify the execution flow through the code.
