Hallmark features of this title

An object-oriented approach

  • A measured approach to objects teaches how to use objects before learning how to write them.
  • Sound programming practices are introduced and reinforced to show how to write good software, not just how to program.
  • Fully implemented examples demonstrate key concepts. Small, readily understandable examples are intertwined with larger, more realistic examples.
  • Optional Graphics Tracks sections serve as excellent examples of object-orientation, covering graphics and GUIs in a natural progression.
  • Software Failure vignettes discuss real-world flaws and failures in software design, encouraging students to adopt sound design practices from the start.
