eBook (PDF), 166 Pages
(4 Ratings)
Price: $10.00
This beginning programming guide takes the reader from know next to nothing about developing applications for the Haiku operating system to knowing the basics and having the skills to go beyond the fundamentals. It begins with a traditional "Hello, world! approach, moves through C programming, and expands into C++ and programming graphical applications for Haiku. Instead of attempting to be an exhaustive C/C++ programming book using Haiku, it focuses on application development using the C++ language. The Haiku operating system is a great platform for aspiring developers. Those who have struggled with learning application development under Linux, Microsoft Windows, or Macintosh will find writing programs under Haiku to be sensible and easy. The free Paladin integrated development environment for Haiku is used for examples in the book.

    This is an excellent primer for writing applications for the Haiku operating system, the open source rewrite of BeOS. This book starts with no assumptions about your programming experience and by the end you are writing full GUI applications, using the Haiku C++ APIs. As someone with UNIX programming experience I skipped ahead a few chapters to get to my level. Each chapter is specific in what it presents, and malformed code puzzles are presented to get you thinking about bugs. I also found the Paladin development environment very useful and used it to port an old BeOS application that needed some rewrite. I hope other developers find this book as useful as I did, and I hope more people use it to write applications for Haiku.
