C++ is a general-purpose programming language built with a bias towards embedded programming and systems programming. Over the years, C++ has evolved and is used to develop software for many different sectors. Given its versatility and robustness, C++is a wonderful language to start your coding journey with. This book covers exciting projects built in C++ that show how to implement the language in different scenarios. While developing these projects, you will not only learn the language constructs but also how you can use C++ to meet your software requirements.

The book starts with a brief introduction to C++ language constructs where you will learn essential concepts that are required to understand the projects covered in the book. The first module will build a library management system that will teach you how to perform efficient file handling and use pointers in your software. To give you a taste of GUI programming, the next module will build graphical applications using Qt 5. You will then be introduced to game design in C++ and build two interesting games. The final module will teach you how C++ can be used to create a Domain Specific Language.

After reading this book, you will have mastered core programming concepts in C++, and how to implement them effectively.

  • Leverage the power of C++ language constructs to build effective software
  • Learn about file handling and pointers
  • Build visually appealing GUI by using the power of Qt5
  • Get a deeper understanding of how to program C++ for a specific purpose by implementing a Domain Specific Language
