The Current Crop
There are a bazillion books on C++03 out in the wild. However, even though there are lots of pieces of C++11 material available for consumption online, there are (AFAIK) only 6 C++11 books currently available:
Lucky BD00. He has 24 X 7 e-access to all of these tomes through his Safari Books Online membership.
Note that even though he has some C++11/14 training material available for purchase on his web site, none of Scott Meyers‘ “Effective” series of C++ books has been updated yet. Fear not. The first in the series, “Effective C++11/14“, is coming to market in early 2014. The description of Scott’s upcoming GoingNative 2013 session, titled “An Effective C++11/14 Sampler“, reads as follows:
After years of intensive study (first of C++0x, then of C++11, and most recently of C++14), Scott thinks he finally has a clue. About the effective use of C++11, that is (including C++14 revisions). At last year’s Going Native, Herb Sutter predicted that Scott would produce a new version of Effective C++ in the 2013-14 time frame, and Scott’s working on proving him almost right. Rather than revise Effective C++, Scott decided to write a new book that focuses exclusively on C++11/14: on the things the experts almost always do (or almost always avoid doing) to produce clear, efficient, effective code. In this presentation, Scott will present a taste of the Items he expects to include in Effective C++11/14. If all goes as planned, he’ll also solicit your help in choosing a cover for the book.
It’s about time that Scott got a clue. 🙂
