Build your skills with essential modern C++ features hands-on by completing eight interesting coding projects.
In C++ Bookcamp
- Learn how to write modern C++ using new features from C++ 11 to 20
- Think about testing as you code
- Learn what happens “under the hood” of your C++ code
- Choose the most efficient algorithm or data structure
introduces you to the most important features of modern C++ coding by guiding you through eight hands-on projects. The book carefully coaches you through all the major language changes since C++ 11. Each new feature you learn comes with a fun project or minigame, from writing a Guess The Number game to racing your way out of a paper bag. It’s a great way to build effective skills, whether you’re a C++ beginner or you’re just upgrading to the newer versions of the language.
about the technology
C++ is used for everything from financial modeling to video games. C++ 11, 17, and 20 have all introduced exciting features that can increase your coding efficiency. This book introduces these features by putting them to use in real projects. Along the way, you’ll get up to speed with frequently used data structures, algorithms, and various parts of the standard library.
about the book
develops your skills with modern C++ through small projects and games. You’ll put each new feature into action by building something fun. Learn about vectors and ranges by generating Pascal’s triangle, use the C++ random library to write a Number Guess game, create a countdown timer with the chrono library, and much much more! The Bookcamp won’t keep you waiting around with unnecessary details of dozens of new standards. You’ll go at a rapid pace throughout, discovering the helpful resources you need to be a best-in-class C++ programmer.
