C++/CLI Primer – An Apress Book

Earlier this year, I wrote about publishing C++/CLI Primer on LeanPub.com. I wondered if there is anybody else besides myself and Microsoft using C++/CLI but readers surprised and humbled me with their support. Seems C++/CLI is here to stay. Know why?

A couple of months back Apress Publications took notice of the book and offered to publish/print. So here it is: C++/CLI Primer for .NET Development, my first book; who would’ve thought 😎

I don’t see this publication as a great achievement or something for there are “miles to go … miles to go”. But it is a little thing to celebrate; cute moments of life.

In penning down the book I was just the vehicle. Friends and family are the wheels and fuel of the vehicle.

Thanks to Apress – Steve, Mark, Amrita and the team.

Thanks to my wife and my brother who always supported and encouraged me to write.

Thanks to Sanjeev and Sammy for not letting my fire within die.

Finally, also taking liberty on behalf of Sanjeev: Special thanks to Tom Craig. Yeah, we would still have been in software development, made names and everything. But without his guidance and inspiration we wouldn’t have known what makes programming a joy.
