8676J-4 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: Classes, objects, and data abstraction 0bject design techniques and strategies for building efficient and stable architectures The C++ object model, and its cost/benefit implications C++ code style guidelines for projects Tips for writing multi-threaded object-oriented software Single and multiple inheritance, generic programming, and error management 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.show more
