C++ Crash Course

Sometimes you have to come up to speed on a new language fast.

I found this book when I was finishing a CS masters at Georgia Tech, facing down a pair of courses (High Performance Computing and Advanced Operating Systems) that required c++, despite my never having practiced it in any meaningful way. Toy examples? Sure. Meaningfully complex applications and build management? Ha! Negative.

The book’s a comprehensive intro to the core language and standard library, and definitely the book for any would-be c++ programmers who doesn’t want to be lulled to sleep with simplified definitions of “variable.”

As it turned out, it was way more than I needed to prepare for either course.
