Programming Instruction, GUI, User Need, Programming Windows (Book), Windows API Bible (Book), Undocumented Windows (Book), Windows Developer Letter (Periodical), Microsoft Windows (GUI), Computer programming -- Bibliography, and Graphical user interface
Many powerful tools are available that simplify software development under the Microsoft Windows interface, but Windows remains a complex programming environment. Several books recommended for Windows programmers are discussed. Andrew Schulman, David Maxey and Matt Pietrek discuss issues not dealt with by Microsoft in their 'Undocumented Windows,' and Charles Petzold's 'Programming Windows' is a classic work that helps the user develop a strong, clear understanding of Windows' interactions and mechanisms. James Conger's 'Windows API Bible' is clearly written and discusses every Windows function and message in detail. A new, highly-technical newsletter, The Windows Developer Letter, presents very elaborate discussions of many important topics and includes source code on disk. Its author and publisher is Wisdom Software's Asael Dror, a former engineering manager at Chips and Technologies Inc.
