While object-oriented software design helps you write more easily maintainable code, companies choose C++ as an OO language for its speed. Object-oriented programming (OOP) in C++ is not automatic – understanding OO concepts and how they map to C++ language features as well as OOP techniques is crucial. You must also know how to distinguish your code by utilizing well-tested, creative solutions, which can be found in popular design patterns. This book will help you to harness OOP in C++ for writing better code.
Starting with the essential C++ features that serve as building blocks for the main chapters, this book explains fundamental object-oriented concepts and shows you how to implement them in C++. With the help of practical code examples and diagrams, you’ll find out how and why things work. The book’s coverage furthers your C++ repertoire by including templates, exceptions, operator overloading, STL, and OO component testing. You’ll also discover popular design patterns with in-depth examples and how to use them as effective programming solutions to recurring OOP problems.
