5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, June 17, 2007
This review is from: An Introduction to Design Patterns in C++ with Qt 4 (Paperback)
This is a very good good which teaches you C++, Qt and design patterns.

I am surprised by the commentaries saying this is not an introductory book. Quite the opposite: this is the perfect book if you do not know any one of Qt, C++ or design patterns but you want to use them together.

Some may say the book worries too much about syntax. Wrong. The authors want to make sure you understand C++ perfectly well because subtle differences (such as the 'static in declaration' vs 'static in definition', introduced in chapter 2) may have devastating effects in your software. The same goes for Qt macros: the book explains them because when you know and understand them, you will write better code; the book by Blanchette and Summerfield barely names them.

As the title says, this book is only an introduction. There are three natural companions you should get if you want to delve deeper in the wonderful world of Qt and design patterns:
* A Complete Guide to Programming in C++ by Prinz and Prinz
* C++ GUI programming with Qt by Blanchette and Summerfield
* Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software by Gamma et al.
