Karel++: A Gentle Introduction to the Art of Object-Oriented Programming (0471138096) cover image

Using the same format that has become so popular in Pascal, Karel the Robot has now become object-oriented. This book is intended to teach novice programmers the fundamentals of object-oriented programming. It accomplishes this goal with an analog equivalent of C++ that allows introductory computer science students to work through a programming project from start to finish.

The book opens by explaining the elaborate Robot world that Karel lives in, a world filled with objects. The text continues this strong metaphor throughout. Through the metaphor, students learn the art of solving programming problems in an object-oriented paradigm.

This text is suitable for any introductory or second course in computer science where C++ is used.
