Programming: Principles And Practice Using C


For anyone with a modicum of programming experience, the name Bjarne Stroustrup should be familiar. He developed the C++ programming language way back in the late 1970s/early 1980s. He is also author of the classic C++ tome The C++ programming language. With such a pedigree you would expect his new book, on the principles and practices of programming, to be more focussed on doing things the C++ way and it is. However, this works in the book's favour.




Programming: Principles and Practice Using C



I have to admit that when I first picked this book up, I expected it to be perhaps more akin to "Practices of programming with C++" than the promised focus on programming with the language being secondary but Stroustrup pulls off his promise admirably. Concentrating on one language, and one which the author knows so well, frees the reader from wading through the differences of language syntax and helps them concentrate on the principles and good practice being demonstrated. When you also consider that this book is aimed at students of programming, and is designed and tested as a textbook to accompany their studies, you get a better idea of why this approach works so well for this book.


Programming is a creative art; as it is an art form designed to be read by other artists/coders (particularly in the context of free software), it is important that such creation follows uniform practices and principles. This book not only teaches good programming, but does so in a way which I have rarely seen in other books aimed at those early on in their programming career.


C++ is a language used in a great many free software products, but this book is not really about learning the language. With its focus on good practice and the principles of coding, this book teaches some invaluable lessons to those writing free software. It may not deal with all the issues involved -- such a collaborative working -- but in terms of writing good code it could prove to be a key tome.


I Am following the "Programming principles and practice using C++" and got to chapter 12 where GUI gets introduced. However I can't get the custom header files from the book to work. After trying several guides of installing fltk specifically for this book I got the furthest with this guide: -to-install-and-use-fltk-1-3-4-in-visual-studio-2017-complete-guide/#comments


C++ is such a powerful and expressive language there are many, many different approaches to achieve the same goal. Some of these approaches are better than others, but it is hard to find general advice on effectively using C++ in practice. The following excellent books by Scott Myers provide a concrete list of useful and easy to understand advice. Gradually reading these books can help transform good programmers into great programmers.


  • This course is an introduction to computer science and programming. Students will learn fundamental concepts of Computing Science as well as develop basic skills in software development using the C++ programming language. This class's lectures, labs, office hours and exams will be 100% online. Some components of the class may be shared with another section of the course. Details released during the first week of class. To complete this class, you must have a computer on which you can compile and run programs written in C++ and a stable internet connection for watching lectures (either streaming real-time, or playback after the fact), completing online labs, in-class quizzes, and in-class exams.TopicsElementary programming: data types and basic input and output

  • Functions: function libraries, passing parameters, returning values, the call stack

  • Control structures: Boolean logic, if statements, loops

  • Aggregate Data Types: arrays, strings, records

  • Dynamic memory: pointers and addresses, and allocation of dynamic memory

  • File input and output

  • Errors and debugging

  • Representation of data types



This course provides an introductory overview of current trends and principles of biomedical engineering. Application of engineering approaches to the analysis of biomedical systems. Principles, practice, and the role of biomedical engineers in science, engineering, healthcare, and commercialization of medical products. Professional moral and ethical issues in biomedical engineering. Prerequisite: ECE 296 with a grade of C or better or consent of instructor.


Some parts of the homework was really difficult because not enough examples to explain what was happening-- additionally, because there are so many different ways to execute something, it would be nice to have more guided suggestions on what path to take (i.e. your solution might have an awful complexity, but there is no guidance really on how to improve it...). Odersky's videos have some points that are not very efficient, would be nice to clarify that in the video that this is not an optimal solution to be using in practice. 041b061a72
