It's back to school season, and I'm sure lots of you are thinking about taking a C++ class this year. My ebook, Jumping into C++, should make a great companion book for any class you take--learn more about it at http://bit.ly/SYILeM

PS Even if you haven't started school yet, you can get a jump on it now :)

My new ebook, Jumping into C++, is now available. Jumping into C++ is a step-by-step guide to C++, designed for beginners but going deep enough into C++ to really make sure you understand the language, with quizzes, practice problems, and lots of examples.

PS thanks to everyone who voted in the cover poll!

You might have noticed fewer posts on Cprogramming.com lately--that's because I've been working feverishly to finish my ebook, Jumping into C++. Now, the book is done, and I need your input! Vote in this poll to help me pick a winning design for the cover: http://bit.ly/zoRUVg

Just learned from C++ Concurrency in Action that C++11 finally fixes the static initializer race condition. Nice benefit of having a language define a multithreading aware memory model! (So far C++ Concurrency in Action is darn good, by the way: http://bit.ly/AhAISO)
