C++ How to Program: An Objects-Natural Approach is a code-intensive, modular introduction to C++ programming. The Deitel live-code approach presents concepts using full working programs rather than code snippets so that you can immediately start to run programs as you read. Interesting, entertaining and challenging examples, exercises and projects help you see how what you’re learning applies to real-world scenarios.

The 11th Edition presents new features of C++ 20 and even more hands-on application opportunities. Hundreds of new self-checks let you test your code and understanding of key concepts. New case studies and exercises focus on security, data science, ethics and more.
