Boost libraries are developed by professionals, tested on multiple platforms and processor architectures, and contain reliable solutions for a wide range of tasks. This Cookbook takes you on a journey of simplifying the process of application development and guides you through writing perfect applications fast.
"Boost C++ Application Development Cookbook" provides you with a number of clear step-by-step recipes that will help you take advantage of the real power of Boost and C++, while giving you a good grounding in using it in any project.
"Boost C++ Application Development Cookbook" looks at the Boost libraries, and breaks down the mystery and confusion about which library to use in which situation. It will take you through a number of clear, practical recipes that will help you to take advantage of the readily available solutions.
Boost C++ Application Development Cookbook starts with teaching the basics of Boost libraries that are now mostly part of C++11 and leave no chance for memory leaks. Managing resources will become a piece of cake. We’ll see what kind of work can be done at compile time and what Boost containers can do. Do you think multithreading is a burden? Not with Boost. Think writing portable and fast servers is impossible? You’ll be surprised! Compilers and operating systems differ too much? Not with Boost. From manipulating images to graphs, directories, timers, files, strings – everyone will find an interesting topic.
You will learn everything for the development of high quality fast and portable applications. Write a program once and then you can use it on Linux, Windows, MacOS, Android operating systems.
This book follows a cookbook approach, with detailed and practical recipes that use Boost libraries.
Who this book is for
This book is great for developers new to Boost, and who are looking to improve their knowledge of Boost and see some undocumented details or tricks. It’s assumed that you will have some experience in C++ already, as well being familiar with the basics of STL. A few chapters will require some previous knowledge of multithreading and networking. You are expected to have at least one good C++ compiler and compiled version of Boost (1.53.0 or later is recommended), which will be used during the exercises within this book.Biographie de l'auteur :
Antony Polukhin was born in Russia. As a child, he could speak the Russian and Hungarian languages and learned English at school. Since his school days, he was participating in different mathematics, physics, and chemistry competitions and winning them.
He was accepted into University twice: once for taking part in a city mathematics competition and again for gaining high score in an internal Universities mathematics and physics challenge. In his university life, there was not a year when he did not participate in an exam: he gained 'A's in all disciplines by writing highly difficult programs for each teacher. He met his future wife in university and graduated with honors.
For more than three years, he worked in a VoIP company developing business logic for a commercial alternative to Asterisc. During those days he started contributing to Boost and became a maintainer of the Boost.LexicalCast library. He also started making translations to Russian for Ubuntu Linux at that time.
Today, he develops a query engine for graph-oriented databases and continues to contribute to the open source. You may find his code in Boost libraries such as Any, LexicalCast, TypeTraits, Variant, and others.
He has been happily married for a year now.
