C++ resources / books


Thought I would share this here - it’s an interview with Bjarne Stroustrup (creator of C++). He recommends some books for learning C++ which look really useful. Here’s the quote:

I recommend my Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++ (2nd Edition) for people just beginning to learn to program, and A Tour of C++ (2nd Edition) for people who are already programmers and need to know about modern C++. People with a strong mathematical background can start with Peter Gottschling‘s Discovering Modern C++: An Intensive Course for Scientists, Engineers, and Programmers .

Once you start using C++ for real, you need a set of guidelines to distinguish what can be done and what is good practice. For that, I recommend the C++ Core Guidelines on GitHub .

There is also a Mastering openFrameworks book which has helped me greatly.
