Test Driven Development for Embedded C

TDD is a modern programming practice C developers need to know. It’s a different way to program—unit tests are written in a tight feedback loop with the production code, assuring your code does what you think. You get valuable feedback every few minutes. You find mistakes before they become bugs. You get early warning of design problems. You get immediate notification of side effect defects. You get to spend more time adding valuable features to your product.

Algorithms in C

These algorithms are represented in terms of compact implementations in C so that readers can both understand their fundamental properties and implement them in real applications. The method of the analysis of algorithms is quite carefully designed. When appropriate, analytic results are described to explain why certain algorithms are preferred. In some cases, the practical algorithms’ relationship being discussed to purely theoretical results is also described.

Effective C++: 55 Specific Ways to Improve Your Programs and Designs

The book opens with some hints for porting code from C to C++ and then moves on to the proper use of the new and delete operators in C++ for more robust memory management. The text then proceeds to class design, including the proper use of constructors, destructors, and overloaded operator functions for assignment within classes. (These guidelines ensure that you will create custom C++ classes that are fully functional data types, which can be copied and assigned just like built-in C++ classes.)
