C++ Programming with Design Patterns Revealed introduces C++ syntax alongside current object-oriented tools such as design patterns, and the Unified Modeling Language (UML), which are essential for the production of well-designed C++ software. Through this book, readers will attain mastery of many C++ features, as well as the object-oriented design techniques that facilitate and optimize their use.
This book uses an example-based approach. First, a technique is presented alongside a piece of code that implements that technique. Next, a component is shown that uses the technique. Finally, an entire running example that incorporates the technique is presented. The book balances a systematic discussion of object-oriented design alongside the introduction of C++ syntax. It introduces twelve basic design patterns early on and uses them throughout, and describes design patterns via use of basic UML. Numerous reference appendices are included for the idioms, design patterns, and programming guidelines in the book. Portability tips, common programming errors, idioms, and programming style tips are also highlighted in each chapter.
This book is designed for readers who have been exposed to Java, as well as to basic object-oriented ideas, and are looking to gain familiarity with C++.
