Hi all, I recently qualified as a Sun Certified Programmer and am willing to travel to the corners of the globe to pursue my passion for java........seriously! I have just finished a Postgrad Certificate in OO Software Development as well. I'm also a member of Mensa and am eager to prove my metal. Any leads or tips would be very appreciated. Thanks Dave
Hello Maalti and Rahul, Thank you for your replies to my message. I am located in Ireland. Rahul, the links you posted for India and S.A. do not seem to be working at the moment but I will try them again over the weekend. Can anyone recommend a good way to start learning C++...................? Thanks for your help
hi, kenny i think the best way to learn C++ is you need to consult "the C++ programming language" by strustoup, who is the creator of C++ whenever you have a problems. i never seen better book about C++. you could do the some project using C++ from any internet sources. i think you could reach many school website, and/or just volunteer linux or some open source project using C++. But i wonder why you want to learn about C++ only if you consider the market. C++ is very good language but it seems the market doesn care about that. i guess serious research oriented programming job requires proficient C++ skills. Is java not enough for you? i regret i haven had many exposure of java during school years(i only did some database programming using embedded sql written by java) rather than code complex compiler code (tokenizer, parser, lexical analyzer, whatever) written by C++. That kind of experience is useless to me right now. C++ is very fast and intellectual but you need to deal with hectic 'destructor call' whenever assign the objects creating ugly template syntax,and complex pointer manipulation. C++ and java has their own strength. if one(java) is more stable, then that must be disadvange about java since it's hard to access and play around the memory.
Hi Dave, Starting out I used Deitel and Deitel I thought their books were okay. Also the Complete Reference is alright but it depends on the readers preferences. I'm getting into C++ myself so I'm reading and taking a course in my spare time. Hope this helps. Rob
