Thread: C++ Standard Programming & Games Programming Books, Websites and Videos!

  1. Default

    Just want to add Accelerated C++ to the books list. IMO the best book ever written on the subject. It doesn't start you programming in C, but gets you straight into the high end library functions of C++ and doesn't waste time on outdated stuff from C like most books. Only like 300 pages long and well worth it. Written by one of the people who worked on the C++ standards commitee.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Programm...2B%2B+Language, covers pretty much everything. It's like 1800 pages, and providing you take your time and absorb the information and use the examples it has everything you should need to know to begin with. Remember, learn the language not just how to game code. You'll never know what previously unused features, or rarely used features all of a sudden play a larger role in future standard specifications. That, a specifically designed reference (or "cookbook") with the shear amount of resources online you should never need anything else (unless it's for future C++ ISO standard revisions)

    Also http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beginning-C-...2B+game+coding Game Programming in C++ Fourth Edition is now available, it's a decent price as well for about 20 if you look in the right places and a great introduction to the C++ languages as it teaches you the basics with how it would be applied to game coding. Just remember this kind of book is only to really open the door for you though.

    Also if you already own the fourth edition then i'd think twice about buying the fifth edition, there isn't that much added to it so you'll be fine as you are.

    It's been a good read in all fairness, a good alternate source of revision
