How to think like a Computer Scientist (C++ Version)
by Allen B. Downey
Number of pages: 189
The goal of this book is to teach you to think like a computer scientist. I like the way computer scientists think because they combine some of the best features of Mathematics, Engineering, and Natural Science. Like mathematicians, computer scientist use formal languages to denote ideas (specifically compuations). Like engineers, they design things, assembling components into systems and evaluating tradeoffs among alternatives. Like scientists, they observe the behavior of complex systems, form hypotheses, and test predictions.

The intended audience of this document is professional C++ developers who want to understand bare metal development a little bit better, get to know how to use C++ language in an embedded environment, and bring their C++ skills to an 'expert' level.

This is an optimization manual for advanced C++ programmers. Topics: The choice of platform and operating system. Choice of compiler and framework. Finding performance bottlenecks. The efficiency of different C++ constructs. Multi-core systems. Etc.
The objective is to present modern C++ idioms to programmers who have moderate level of familiarity with C++, and help elevate their knowledge so that C++ feels much friendlier to them. It is designed to be an exhaustive catalog of reusable idioms.
