Introduction to C++ Programming and Data Structures introduces basic programming concepts and logic using a fundamentals-first approach. Concepts and techniques, including control statements, loops, functions and arrays, are covered before object-oriented and data structure topics. The step-by step presentation helps you build on your knowledge. A large variety of examples and problems supply interesting, fun context for learning concepts. Examples drawn from math, science, business, finance, gaming, animation and multimedia bring concepts to life and make the material more relatable. As you progress through the text, you will learn how to create efficient, elegant code to solve programming problems

The 2nd Edition has up-to-date content that reflects recent programming trends like cloud storage and touchscreens. All code is compatible with C++17.
