Learn C++ in Just One Hour a Day

Completely updated for the C++11 standard, Sams Teach Yourself C++ in One Hour a Day presents the language from a practical point of view, helping you learn how to use C++11 to create faster, simpler, and more efficient C++ applications.

  • Master the fundamentals of C++ and object-oriented programming
  • Understand how C++11 features help you write compact and efficient code using concepts such as lambda expressions, move constructors, and assignment operators
  • Learn the Standard Template Library, including containers and algorithms used in most real-world C++ applications
  • Test your knowledge and expertise using exercises at the end of every lesson

Learn on your own time, at your own pace:

  • No previous programming experience required
  • Learn C++11, object-oriented programming, and analysis
  • Write fast and powerful C++ programs, compile the source code with a gcc compiler, and create executable files
  • Use the Standard Template Library’s (STL) algorithms and containers to write feature-rich yet stable C++ applications
  • Develop sophisticated programming techniques using lambda expressions, smart pointers, and move constructors
  • Learn to expand your program’s power with inheritance and polymorphism
  • Master the features of C++ by learning from programming experts
  • Learn C++11 features that allow you to program compact and high-performance C++ applications
