Here’s the easy way to learn how to use C++

C++, developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs, is one of the most widely used programming languages, with close to four million C++ programmers and growing. C++’s popularity has earned it a spot as part of the Standard Library.

Fully updated for the new C++ 2009 standard, C++ All-in-One for Dummies, 2nd Edition compiles seven books into one. This guidebook covers key topics like an introduction to C++, understanding objects and classes, fixing problems, advanced programming, reading and writing files, advanced C++, and building applications with Microsoft MFC. If you're a C++ newbie, start with Book I. But if you’re experienced with C++, simply jump in anywhere to learn more! This all-in-one reference helps you learn to:

  • Use C++ for Windows, Mac, and Linux by using the CodeBlocks compiler
  • Understand object-oriented programming
  • Use various diagrams to design your programs
  • Recognize how local variables are stored
  • Use packages, notes, and tags effectively
  • Make a class persistent
  • Handle constructors and destructors

Discover how algorithms shape and impact our digital world

All data, big or small, starts with algorithms. Algorithms are mathematical equations that determine what we see—based on our likes, dislikes, queries, views, interests, relationships, and more—online. They are, in a sense, the electronic gatekeepers to our digital, as well as our physical, world. This book demystifies the subject of algorithms so you can understand how important they are business and scientific decision making.

Algorithms for Dummies is a clear and concise primer for everyday people who are interested in algorithms and how they impact our digital lives. Based on the fact that we already live in a world where algorithms are behind most of the technology we use, this book offers eye-opening information on the pervasiveness and importance of this mathematical science—how it plays out in our everyday digestion of news and entertainment, as well as in its influence on our social interactions and consumerism. Readers even learn how to program an algorithm using Python! Become well-versed in the major areas comprising algorithms Examine the incredible history behind algorithms Get familiar with real-world applications of problem-solving procedures Experience hands-on development of an algorithm from start to finish with Python

If you have a nagging curiosity about why an ad for that hammock you checked out on Amazon is appearing on your Facebook page, you'll find Algorithm for Dummies to be an enlightening introduction to this integral realm of math, science, and business.

If you’ve asked yourself “Why can’t I develop database and XML queries in a language I already know?”, then Language INtegrated Query, or LINQ, is for you. LINQ For Dummies introduces you to LINQ and the .NET Framework technologies, so you can use LINQ to query any object, any data set, any kind of XML, and SQL Server—no questions asked.

This plain-English guide gives you a thorough overview of LINQ, from understanding the tasks it performs to making LINQ work with both Visual Basic and Visual Studio 2005. It explains the four LINQ providers in the .NET Framework, the easiest ways to go about accessing data, and how to write more efficient applications with less code using LINQ. There’s also clear guidance on combining third-party providers with LINQ to create even more powerful apps. With this single, comprehensive guide, you’ll discover how to:

Use one query language with all Microsoft languages Examine .NET language extensions and work with extension methods, partial methods, lambda expressions, and query expressions LINQ to DataSet operators, SQL server operations, XML API, or Active Directory Deal with databases — download and install the Northwind database, generate Northwind entity classes, and create the Northwind XML mapping file Create the partial class example, the partial method example, and the database modification example Use objects with LINQ Query databases in Visual Basic and C#

As an added bonus, you can visit the companion Web site for LINQ examples in C# and Visual Basic. With LINQ For Dummies, you’ll link up with LINQ in no time and see how you can query almost anything!
