This book teaches the basics of object oriented programming using C++. The objective is to get the readers started on programming and lay the foundation for them to learn more. Basics of C++ and object oriented programming concepts are explained with examples. The emphasis throughout the book is on using programming to solve problems rather than a detailed syntactical description of features of C++. The intended audience is beginner to intermediate level programmer. The book relates concepts of object oriented programming to how we approach problem solving in our daily life. The aim is to make programming a natural part of our repertoire just like our native language. Programming is a powerful tool that all of us can use to bring our ideas to life in a dynamic way. All it takes is curiosity, a sense of wonder and the drive to give life to the worlds of our imagination! Part 1 of the book (Chapters 1 to 4) covers the basics of the C++ language. Part 2 of the book (Chapters 5 to 9) covers concepts of object oriented programming. Content of Part 1 and a part of Chapter 5 was used as a first course on programming for first year undergraduate engineering students. The rest of the book was used to teach C++ and object oriented programming to engineering professionals already familiar with a programming language such as BASIC, FORTRAN and C but new to object oriented programming.show more
