Books, Books, Books (on C++)
I already said it once in another post but I think it deserves to be mentioned again: Don’t underestimate the usefulness of good books about C++! Prefer buying a good book over searching the internet for tutorials, examples, explanations if you want to learn the language and/or learn about useful idioms, guidelines, etc…
I recently added two other books to my personal library: “Effective C++” and “C++ Coding Standards”. It took me only 3 weeks to finish both books. That means they were interesting and insightful.
Now, it’s these four C++ books that are in my posession:
- The C++ Programming Language (Special Edition) by Bjarne Stroustrup
- Modern C++ Design by Andrei Alexandrescu
- Effective C++ (Third Edition) by Scott Meyers
- C++ Coding Standards by Herb Sutter & Andrei Alexandrescu
I wouldn’t mention them here if I didn’t like them.
