Now that software development is shifting primarily toward mobile and cloud computing, C++ is returning to the dominant position. Authors demonstrate how modern C++ provides the power necessary for server farms as well as low-footprint mobile apps.

Online book about how to write a computer operating system in C/C++ from scratch. The goal is to build a very simple UNIX-based operating system, not just a 'proof-of-concept'. The OS should be able to boot, start a userland shell, and be extensible.

The book for knowledgeable users of C who would like to make the transition to C++. It is the main textbook for C++ programming courses at the University of Groningen. The text does not cover C++'s basic grammar, which is equal to C's grammar.
The objective is to present modern C++ idioms to programmers who have moderate level of familiarity with C++, and help elevate their knowledge so that C++ feels much friendlier to them. It is designed to be an exhaustive catalog of reusable idioms.
