This book has captured my attention as the title included the words “for absolute beginner”. I would consider myself an absolute beginner when it comes to programming. I have no idea on how programming works and I am really interested to find out how games can be created with C++.
C++ is the most widely used programming language and is an industry standard for programming applications of all kinds. Most of the softwares for our smart phones are created in C++. Therefore, it will really be useful if we know something about C++ programming.
Besides providing a solid foundation on the principles of programming, this book actually shows you how you can learn and apply C++ programming through creating simple games. I think that it is more fun to learn programming this way and you will be able to apply what you have learnt immediately.
The book is not only meant for the SOI students but also for anyone who is interested in creating simple games.
