The complete, authoritative DEITELÂ¨ LIVE-CODE introduction to C++, object-oriented programming (OOP) and object-oriented design (OOD) with the UMLâ„¢ 2 C++ is one of the most popular object-oriented programming languages. This new edition of the world's most widely used C++ textbook introduces game programming with the Ogre libraries. "An excellent 'objects first' coverage of C++ that remains accessible to beginners. The example-driven presentation is enriched by the optional UML case study that contextualizes the material in an ongoing software engineering project."Gavin Osborne, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology "Introducing the UML to students early on is a great idea."Raymond Stephenson, Microsoft "Good use of diagrams, especially of the activation call stack and recursive functions."Amar Raheja, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona "Terrific discussion of pointers-probably the best I have seen."Anne B. Horton, Lockheed Martin "Great coverage of polymorphism and how the compiler implements polymorphism 'under the hood.' I wish I had such a clear presentation of data structures when I was a student."Ed James-Beckham, Borland "Includes a nice introduction to searching and sorting, and Big-O."Robert Myers, Florida State University "Ogre is a free world-class rendering engine that has been used in several commercial games. The Ogre chapter is a great introduction, providing well documented and easy to understand examples that will have you creating your own simple computer games in no time! "Casey Borders (Creator of OgreAL), Sensis Corp. "Getting a new user to the stage of creating a functional and playable Ogre-based computer game in 40 pages is a great achievement."Steve Streeting (Creator of Ogre), Torus Knot Software Ltd. " The Boost/C++0x chapter will get you up and running quickly with memory management and regular expression libraries, plus whet your appetite for new C++ features being standardized."Ed Brey, Kohler Co. "Excellent introduction to the Standard Template Library (STL). The best book on C++ programming for the serious student!"Richard Albright, Goldey-Beacom College "Just when you think you are focused on learning one topic, suddenly you discover you've learned more than you expected."Chad Willwerth, University of Washington, Tacoma "The most thorough C++ treatment of I've seen. Replete with real-world case studies covering the full software development lifecycle. Code examples are extraordinary!" Terrell Hull, Logicalis Integration Solutions C++ How to Program, 6/e, provides a comprehensive coverage of object-oriented programming in C++, including several major integrated case studies: the GradeBook class, the Time class, the Employee class and the optional OOD/UMLâ„¢ 2 ATM System.
