Discover the impressive capabilities of C++ and learn the skills you need to implement it in real lifeKey Features Leverage the power of C++ language constructs to build effective software Learn about file handling and pointers Build visually appealing GUI by using the power of Qt5 Get a deeper understanding of how to program C++ for a specific purpose by implementing a Domain Specific LanguageBook Description

C++ is a general-purpose programming language built with a bias towards embedded programming and systems programming. Over the years, C++ has evolved and is used to develop software for many different sectors. Given its versatility and robustness, C++is a wonderful language to start your coding journey with. This book covers exciting projects built in C++ that show how to implement the language in different scenarios. While developing these projects, you will not only learn the language constructs but also how you can use C++ to meet your software requirements.

The book starts with a brief introduction to C++ language constructs where you will learn essential concepts that are required to understand the projects covered in the book. The first module will build a library management system that will teach you how to perform efficient file handling and use pointers in your software. To give you a taste of GUI programming, the next module will build graphical applications using Qt 5. You will then be introduced to game design in C++ and build two interesting games. The final module will teach you how C++ can be used to create a Domain Specific Language.

After reading this book, you will have mastered core programming concepts in C++, and how to implement them effectively.

What you will learn Create object-oriented hierarchies and how to compile, link, and execute a simple program Implement classes with linked lists, templates, inheritance, operator overloading, and exception handling Efficient file handling and pointer structures Dynamic allocation and deallocation along with marshmallowing Qt features, including menus, toolbars, caret handling, and more Implement a Domain Specific Language in C++Who this book is for

This book is for developers who would like to develop software in C++. Basic programming experience would be an added advantage.

While media buzz regularly circulates around iPhone and Android, Nokia still leads the pack in terms of world market share. Symbian, for instance, remains the most widely used mobile operating system. With Nokia's open development platform, the opportunities available for mobile developers to target this vastly popular operating system are abundant and clear. Use Qt to target both platforms: Symbian, the most widely used mobile operating system in the world, as well as MeeGo, the Intel/Nokia platform for mobile devices. Develop HTML5 applications for both Symbian and MeeGo platforms that will run with little modification on other mobile platforms. Novice developers learn the basics of Qt with a mobile slant, giving them the ability to target both desktop and mobile platforms. What you’ll learn How to do Qt basics What is QML or the Qt Markup Language What is Qt for Meego and how to use it and how to use it How to work with the Web Runtime Why mobile development is different How to port/support MeeGo and Symbian platforms Who this book is for

This must-have book is for mobile developers wanting to target the Meego and Symbian platforms (either as the sole platform or in cross-platform development), and existing mobile developers wanting to start using Qt.

With more than 250 million iOS devices sold Apple’s booming mobile platform provides a large and rapidly growing app market for developers, and with the release of the iOS 5 SDK, Apple has provided their richest, most exciting set of development tools yet. In this book, iOS programming expert Richard Warren shows you how to use these powerful tools to begin writing the next generation of iOS apps. Richard provides a complete introduction to iPhone and iPad development, emphasizing the newest technologies and best practices for iOS 5.

After a tour of the inner workings of an iOS project and an invaluable examination of Objective-C, you will hone your app-developing skills by developing a complete, full-featured application. You start by building the app’s user interface. This will cover everything from linking View Controllers in the Storyboard to drawing custom views. Next, you will use iCloud storage and Core data to manage your app’s data model, synchronizing your data across multiple devices. Then you tackle more advanced topics, including Core Animation, Core Motion, Core Location and Core Image. Finally, Richard shows you how to test, polish and prepare your apps for submission to the iTunes App Store.

This book includes:
Detailed instruction, ample illustrations, and clear examples Real-world guidance and advice Insight into best practices from an iOS programming expert A solid introduction to the Objective-C language and important Cocoa design patterns
Information on key iOS 5 technologies, including Automatic Reference Counting, Storyboards, iCloud storage, Container View Controllers, Custom Control Appearances, Core Image, and integrated Twitter support.

Bestselling Programming Tutorial and Reference Completely Rewritten for the New C++11 Standard

Fully updated and recast for the newly released C++11 standard, this authoritative and comprehensive introduction to C++ will help you to learn the language fast, and to use it in modern, highly effective ways. Highlighting today’s best practices, the authors show how to use both the core language and its standard library to write efficient, readable, and powerful code.

C++ Primer, Fifth Edition, introduces the C++ standard library from the outset, drawing on its common functions and facilities to help you write useful programs without first having to master every language detail. The book’s many examples have been revised to use the new language features and demonstrate how to make the best use of them. This book is a proven tutorial for those new to C++, an authoritative discussion of core C++ concepts and techniques, and a valuable resource for experienced programmers, especially those eager to see C++11 enhancements illuminated.

C++ Primer, Fifth Edition, features an enhanced, layflat binding, which allows the book to stay open more easily when placed on a flat surface. This special binding method—notable by a small space inside the spine—also increases durability.

Coming to grips with C++11 and C++14 is more than a matter of familiarizing yourself with the features they introduce (e.g., auto type declarations, move semantics, lambda expressions, and concurrency support). The challenge is learning to use those features effectively—so that your software is correct, efficient, maintainable, and portable. That’s where this practical book comes in. It describes how to write truly great software using C++11 and C++14—i.e. using modern C++.

Topics include:

The pros and cons of braced initialization, noexcept specifications, perfect forwarding, and smart pointer make functionsThe relationships among std::move, std::forward, rvalue references, and universal referencesTechniques for writing clear, correct, effective lambda expressionsHow std::atomic differs from volatile, how each should be used, and how they relate to C++'s concurrency APIHow best practices in "old" C++ programming (i.e., C++98) require revision for software development in modern C++

Effective Modern C++ follows the proven guideline-based, example-driven format of Scott Meyers' earlier books, but covers entirely new material.

"After I learned the C++ basics, I then learned how to use C++ in production code from Meyer's series of Effective C++ books. Effective Modern C++ is the most important how-to book for advice on key guidelines, styles, and idioms to use modern C++ effectively and well. Don't own it yet? Buy this one. Now".
