Books on C++17
This post is part of a regular series of posts where the C++ product team here at Microsoft and other guests answer questions we have received from customers. The questions can be about anything C++ related: MSVC toolset, the standard language and library, the C++ standards committee, isocpp.org, CppCon, etc. Today’s post is by Marian Luparu.
C++17 is an important evolution of the C++ language, and you may be wondering how you should get started learning about it. On our blog, you will always find the latest announcements related to our team’s work on C++17 and future standards and, as part of this new series, advice on any C++17 related topics you’ve asked us about. But many of you may also want the more systematic approach to learning, an approach that books can give you when absorbing such a large topic.
Here are three books, written by our Microsoft MVPs, that can be good starting points to get yourself familiar with C++17
The Modern C++ Challenge: Become an expert programmer by solving real-world problems, by Marius Bancila
|Although C++17 is not as big as C++11, it’s larger than C++14. Everyone expected modules, co-routines, concepts and other powerful features, but it wasn’t possible to prepare everything on time. Is C++17 weak? Far from it! And this book will show you why!|
The book brings you exclusive content about C++17 and draws from the experience of many articles that have appeared on bfilipek.com. The chapters were rewritten from the ground-up and updated with the latest information. All of that equipped with lots of new examples and practical tips. Additionally, the book provides insight into the current implementation status, compiler support, performance issues and other relevant knowledge to boost your current projects.
If you know a bit of C++11/14 and you want to move forward into the latest C++ techniques, then this book is for you.
What other good C++17 books would you recommend to someone that is just getting started with C++? How about a C++ expert that hasn’t looked at C++17 yet?
