Think Like a Programmer

Product details
The real challenge of programming isn't learning a language's syntax—it'slearning to creatively solve problems so you can build something great. Inthis one-of-a-kind text, author V. Anton Spraul breaks down the ways thatprogrammers solve problems and teaches you what other introductory books oftenignore: how to Think Like a Programmer. Each chapter tackles a singleprogramming concept, like classes, pointers, and recursion, and open-endedexercises throughout challenge you to apply your knowledge. You'll also learn how to: –Split problems into discrete components to make them easier to solve –Make the most of code reuse with functions, classes, and libraries –Pick the perfect data structure for a particular job –Master more advanced programming tools like recursion and dynamic memory –Organize your thoughts and develop strategies to tackle particular types ofproblems Although the book's examples are written in C++, the creative problem-solvingconcepts they illustrate go beyond any particular language; in fact, theyoften reach outside the realm of computer science. As the most skillfulprogrammers know, writing great code is a creative art—and the first step increating your masterpiece is learning to Think Like a Programmer.
