About this book

It is common to code games using C++ without being a C++ master.

The book is aimed at beginner level readers and completely focusses on learning C++ and contains no gaming specific content at all. This laser focus means you will get a better knowledge of C++ coding. This will probably,in the long-run, result in better game programming! In Jumping into C++ written by Alex Allain and published by Cprogramming.com, there will be no multi-player, cross-platform or bombs hordes but digging deeper in the pure language will likely help significantly.

More information about this book

This book is less comprehensive than some others available. The reason it is included here is because of how clearly it teaches the C++ fundamentals and the fact that a number of very long/complicated C++ topics which are not relevant to game coding are omitted. Everything you learn in this book will improve your game coding skills but it is fundamentally not, about game coding. Here is what you will learn:

  • Getting the tools you need to program and how to use them
  • Basic language feature like variables, loops and functions
  • How to go from an idea to code
  • A clear, understandable explanation of pointers
  • Strings, file IO, arrays, references
  • Classes and advanced class design
  • C++ specific programming patterns
  • Object oriented programming
  • Data structures and the standard template library (STL)
  • Key concepts are reinforced with quizzes and over 75 practice problems.
