Book: Sams Teach Yourself Visual C++.NET in 21 Days (2nd Edition)
Publisher: Sams Publishing
Sams Teach Yourself Visual C++.NET in 21 Days, 2nd Edition is a time-saving guide walking you through Visual C++ tools and wizards for building applications and places VC++ in the context of the new Visual Studio.NET environment. This book emphasizes using Visual C++ tools and wizards to generate code. Code examples are augmented with C++ language sidebars: Readers who need a refresher on the language or want to go further "under the hood" will have a context, while those who don’t can easily skip that coverage. The revision includes more information throughout on Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC), how Windows applications work, and how MFC abstracts the Windows functionality to simplify building applications. Chapters on managed code, ATL functionality, and interacting with VB and C# components will help users begin to master the new .NET aspects of Visual C++.
About the Author
Davis Chapman first began programming computers while working on his Masters Degree in Music Composition. While writing applications for computer music, he discovered that he enjoyed designing and developing computer software. It wasn’t long before he came to the realization that he stood a much better chance of eating if he stuck with his new-found skill and demoted his hard-earned status as a "starving artist" to a part-time hobby. Since that time, Davis has focused on the art of software design and development, with a strong emphasis on the practical application of Client/Server and Web/Internet technologies. Davis was the lead author for Building Secure Applications with Visual Basic, Sams Teach Yourself Visual C++ 6 in 21 Days, Web Development with Visual Basic 5 and Building Internet Applications with Delphi 2. Davis was also a contributing author on MFC Programming with Visual C++ 6 Unleashed, Special Edition Using Active Server Pages, and Running a Perfect Web Site, Second Edition. He has been a consultant working and living in Dallas, Texas, for the past 12 years. Davis can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
