From the Publisher
Who is this for
Programmers experienced with another language that want to learn C++20. Those with backgrounds in the sciences that want to learn C++20, regardless of programming experience. C++ programmers with all levels of experience. C++ programmers with all levels of experience. C++ programmers with all levels of experience. Those with little or no programming experience.
Hands-on instruction, including 200+, real-world examples to help you quickly master C++20, its “Big Four” features (Ranges, Concepts, Modules and Coroutines), and idioms using popular compilers. Drawing on extensive experience teaching C++ to physicists, mathematicians, engineers, and students, this intensive introduction guides you smoothly to sophisticated approaches based on advanced features. Identifies 30 Core Guidelines you’ll find especially valuable and offers detailed practical knowledge for improving your C++ style through useful conceptual insights and expert sample code. Condenses the C++ Core Guidelines to their essence, removing esoterica, sharing new insights and context, and presenting well-tested examples to help you write more elegant C++ programs and improve legacy code. Distills the C++ community’s years of experience applying C++11 and C++14 features to help you make effective and safe design decisions that reflect real-world, economic engineering tradeoffs in large-scale, diverse software development environments. This complete tutorial will help you quickly master the basics of object-oriented programming and teach you advanced C++ language features and concepts.

“This is a fine book that covers a surprising amount of the very large language that is C++20—an in-depth treatment of C++ for a reader familiar with how things work in other programming languages.” —Arthur O’Dwyer, C++ trainer ” For true geeks, it is an easy and entertaining read. For most software developers, it offers something new and useful.” –Bjarne Stroustrup, inventor of C++ and co-editor of the C++ Core Guidelines “We are very pleased to see Rainer Grimm applying his teaching skills and industrial background to tackling the hard and necessary task of making [these] accessible to more people.” –Bjarne Stroustrup and Herb Sutter, co-editors, C++ Core Guidelines
