C++ for Beginners, C++ Programming
C++ is a high level language that is an iteration of C that includes more features and improves upon already existing ones. C++ is designed to provide efficient programs, it has the philosophy of “zero overhead” that effectively means that all extras are removed, this means that there is less support for a programmer with error messages etc and limited functionality in libraries, but the code will run fast and effectively. This means C++ is really only used in situations where efficiency is crucial, this is why C++ is commonly used in games as well for example, where every ounce of hardware is to be utilized efficiently.
Each chapter will contain a certain number of relevant topics with illustrations and exercises where necessary, this will all be finished off with an end of chapter quiz for an easy and enjoyable learning.
So C++ has a very well defined role as a language and is effective in achieving it, keep that in mind when using C++ because there are characteristics like uninformative error messages that make it difficult to create a program quickly, this is why when comparing C# to C++ it is said that C++ will take around 4 times as long and a development process completed with C#.
However, don’t let deter, C++ is wonderful at what it does and has been adopted by many multinational companies around the globe to develop efficient applications and programs.
