Programming books


I recently received my books I ordered from Barnes & Noble.

The book I’m starting with is “Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++” by Bjarne Stroustrup.
Afterward it will be “The C++ Programming Language” also by Bjarne Stroustrup.

I talked to my knowledgeable programmer friend on MSN over my book selection, his input was invaluable.
Here’s a few tidbits from a much larger conversation.

Excellent, my motivation increased after he told me that.

This should keep me distracted fully, right?
Wrong.. my mind tends to wander in-between chapters thinking about her.
I need to stop, seriously, I won’t learn from my books, if I keep that up.
She dislikes me and there’s no changing that anymore.

Anyway, It’ll be a while until I read that Petzold book, the author assumes I have a good handle on C/C++, not that far yet!
As for the “In easy steps” book, I skimmed it, looks decent but I prefer the books written by the actual creator of the language.

Who knows, “Lazy Dog Creations” might rise again, this time with C++ apps, but that’s thinking too far ahead.
Motivation Level: HIGH

Back to reading, until next post!
And yes Zuly, CoD and LoL are written in C++ and some Lua.
