About this book

Write maintainable, extensible, and durable software with modern C++. This book is a must for every developer, software architect, or team leader who is interested in good C++ code, and thus also wants to save development costs. If you want to teach yourself about writing clean C++, Clean C++ is exactly what you need. It is written to help C++ developers of all skill levels and shows by example how to write understandable, flexible, maintainable, and efficient C++ code. Even if you are a seasoned C++ developer, there are nuggets and data points in this book that you will find useful in your work.
If you don't take care with your code, you can produce a large, messy, and unmaintainable beast in any programming language. However, C++ projects in particular are prone to be messy and tend to slip into bad habits. Lots of C++ code that is written today looks as if it was written in the 1980s.
It seems that C++ developers have been forgotten by those who preach Software Craftsmanship and Clean Code principles. The Web is full of bad, but apparently very fast and highly optimized C++ code examples, with cruel syntax that completely ignores elementary principles of good design and well-written code. This book will explain how to avoid this scenario and how to get the most out of your C++ code. You'll find your coding becomes more efficient and, importantly, more fun.
What You'll Learn

  • Gain sound principles and rules for clean coding in C++
  • Carry out test driven development (TDD)
  • Discover C++ design patterns and idioms
  • Apply these design patterns

Who This Book Is For
Any C++ developer and software engineer with an interest in producing better code.
