As the subjects states , I am a Powerbuilder programmer, and made a few tries to learn C++ , here is the story.
I get a few books, read'em and get terribly bored. Ok guys, I learned the basic stuff, now what? Where is a real world book? C++ is not as easy as VB or Powerbuilder to understand and use by simply reading one or two books with basic examples.
It seems that there is no book to get you into real world programming, e.g. client-server development using QT or GTK or any other widget set. Everything I looked at is good either for an academic approach or for a nice theory on the language which you can't even put to practice because the examples are so generic that don't really help in the real world and last is the category of books that are really written for professionals that already know a lot of stuff and need specific information to master their techniques.
Well, the task is simple. Let's say that we need a simple but nice looking application to store customers, send a few e-mails to these customers, print some nice looking reports and export some data to a spreadsheet or pdf. Simple as that!
Could anyone suggest a book or a series of books that could get us windows programmers to linux real world application programming with C++?
