Enough Rope to Shoot Yourself in the Foot: Rules for C and by Allen I. Holub

By Allen I. Holub

I virtually handed in this ebook as a result of many of the detrimental experiences.

Okay, it's no Code entire, yet this ebook is an absolute gem. i've been programming C++ for approximately 6 years now (VB clients be darned, it really is my favourite programming language, interval) and that i used to be surprised how a lot I agreed with this author's recommendation.

Yeah, I discovered much from Scott Meyers' canonical "Effective" books. yet what i love approximately this publication is that it's a no-nonsense, in-your-face, tell-it-like-it-is e-book that i believe is vital for these wet-behind-the-ears C++ programmers (or these whiners who declare that C++ is simply too hard).

It will most likely piss off loads of home windows programmers in addition to he's just a little anti-Microsoft. despite the fact that, i'm essentially a MFC programmer and
what he says approximately MFC (earlier variants) and home windows programming as a rule is basically right.

This publication is a needs to for each beginner C/C++ programmer. The skilled C/C++ programmers will most likely inform you that they recognize all approximately this, so such a lot of them will provide it a move. even though, as a skilled C++ programmer, i believe that they're creating a mistake. they should get this publication at the shelf to boot.

At the very least they could personal loan it to the rookies.
