I will start work soon( in about a month ), so I am hoping to increase my C++ skills. Any suggesting on free online reads? I know about parashit and gotw but any others? Thanks.

Stop reading and practice.


Funny, I thought you would have had a different recommendation... ;)


He is right though, you learn very little if you don't start "doing".

Otherwise, your post is exceedingly vague. C++ and programming in general are exceedingly broad categories and we have no indication of you current skill level, rendering any other recommendation pretty much impossible.

Unless your work will be in compiler, database or web browser design or HPC (where C is still better option), the C++ skills will involve implementing design patterns and interfacing with third-party APIs, most often via XML.

Different situations require different recommendations. Blind zealotry aids nobody.
