Two weeks ago I posted a similar message about recommended advanced C++ books. An overwhelming number of responses mentioned Scott Meyers' Effective series including STL, Modern C++ Design: Generic Programming and Design Patterns Applied
by Andrei Alexandrescu, and Design Patterns.
I decided on Scott Meyer's Effective STL and Modern C++ Design: Generic Programming and Design Patterns Applied
by Andrei Alexandrescu. I definitely agree those books are exceptional in terns of advanced techniques and design patterns. I learned more from those books have from all previous C++ books I owned.
Now I am ready to move ahead and learn more specific software design, COM. I believe COM should be the next concept to look into because as windows applications become more integrated, COM will be even more popular and useful in the future.
I have heard about ATL and know that ATL is to COM and MFC is to Win32 API. Nonetheless, I do not know how ATL relates to C++.
What do you recommend as the best book on COM concept and implementation using C++?
