Hands-On Design Patterns with C++ - Second Edition

Overview of this book

C++ is a general-purpose programming language designed for efficiency, performance, and flexibility. Design patterns are commonly accepted solutions to well-recognized design problems. In essence, they are a library of reusable components, only for software architecture, and not for a concrete implementation. This book helps you focus on the design patterns that naturally adapt to your needs, and on the patterns that uniquely benefit from the features of C++. Armed with the knowledge of these patterns, you’ll spend less time searching for solutions to common problems and tackle challenges with the solutions developed from experience. You’ll also explore that design patterns are a concise and efficient way to communicate, as patterns are a familiar and recognizable solution to a specific problem and can convey a considerable amount of information with a single line of code. By the end of this book, you’ll have a deep understanding of how to use design patterns to write maintainable, robust, and reusable software.

Part 1: Getting Started with C++ Features and Concepts

This part introduces and explains the features of C++ object-oriented programming, generic programming, and some of the other advanced language tools that are necessary for you to understand the rest of the book. We also discuss some of the more annoying limitations imposed by the language: many of the patterns we show in the later chapters are nothing but universally recognized solutions to these limitations. This is not meant as a complete guide for any of the features, but helps make the book more self-contained as a hands-on guide for programmers. This part has the following chapters:
