C++ Primer Plus and LearnCPP.com

July 26, 2012 1 comment

Two weeks back I’ve started to check C++, after a gap of almost 71/2 years. During these 71/2 years I’ve worked in a variety of technologies. Majority of them were related to web applications and scriptting languages.

Though I have used languages like Java, C#, VB.net, etc from time to time either for accomplishing some of my tasks or for doing some personal experiments or projects.

But when I returned back to C++ it was a bit different experience. I prefer learning or brushup things based on books and have read some great books along with some really bad ones. I feel that some authors really make things difficult for reader by going in a very complex way while describing things. I personally feel that writing is an art and some authors really mastered the art of writing and Stephen Prata is one the of the best author I’ve experienced.

Recently I bought C++ Primer Plus by Stephen Prata. I bought this purely based on the reviews about this in Amazon.com and my decision to buy this book was one of the best that I’ve made recently.

I haven’t read this book completely but I can assure you that this covers all the details about C++ in a very detailed manner. The writing style is simple and strightforward unlike some other books. I’d suggest this book to anyone who wants to learn C++ as a newbie or for someone with lots of programming experience as both can gain a lot of information from this. This book would be an asset to any C++ programmer.

Another great online reference for budding C++ programmers is LearnCPP.com. This resource maintains its quality throughout its tutorials. The writing style was simple and uncomplicated. I often found that conveying the concepts can be very difficult. But LearnCPP.com handled this very efficiently. I highly recommend this site to anyone who wants to learn C++ or bushup their C++ skills.
