You Can Program in C++
by Francis Glassborow

In Stock
C++ has been around for two decades and yet it has gone through significant changes through its evolution from its C roots to its current incarnation. The modern style of programming in C++ makes extensive use of the C++ Standard Library and uses new non-C idioms. It is still the most widely used and popular general purpose programming language.

"the book is a self-contained course, and as such, good value." (Visual Systems Journal, September 2006)

About Francis Glassborow

Francis Glassborow was chairman of the ACCU (Association of C & C++ Users) and edited the groups' principle publication throughout the 90's. He has published reviews of most C++ books on the market but doesn't confine his wisdom nor interest just to this language. He was a regular columnist for .EXE. Until this year he chaired an annual Programmers conference that regularly attracts the heavy-weights in C++ as well as other languages. He heads the UK delegation to the ISO working group committees for C and C++ and is therefore considered to be one of the world's leading authorities. He is the originator of much of the material aimed at making C++ easier to learn in the next Standard. His first book, "You Can Do It" is a motivational book teaching basic programming constructs to people with no background. It published with Wiley in 2003.
