Introduction to Computing Using C++ and Object TechnologyBook - 1999
Successful authors William Ford and William Topp have written the first introductory programming book using C++ that concentrates on teaching object design. The authors recognize that program design is one of the most difficult concepts for an introductory programmer. They introduce program design through detailed examples, case studies, and object design methodology and tools such as Unified Modelling Language (UML). The authors carefully walk the reader through the principles of top-down design to produce complete real-world applications.
A perusal of computer job classifieds attests to the prevalence of C++ programming language. Designed for a first one-semester course in computing C++ and the principles of object technology, the text supports learning the syntax and structure by immersing students immediately in examples, programs, and algorithms taking advantage of this powerful problem-solving paradigm. Students with programming background can move ahead to more advanced topics in developing control structures and language constructs. The CD-ROM contains Rational Rose demonstration software and Microsoft Visual C++ Learning Edition. A supplements package is available with a solutions manual and on-line source code.
