Index.
  • The first of its kind, this text is designed for the growing number of IS/CIS/MIS programs which are introducing their students to programming from the start, using C++ and Object-Oriented programming.
  • This book supports the trend towards teaching students to work with objects from the very beginning of their programming education, rather than starting with structured programming and then having to relearn programming from the object-oriented perspective.
  • Emphasis on the business environment by placing programming within the context of the organization. Begins with the systems development life cycle and demonstrates where the software development cycle fits within it.
