The New York Times bestselling true story of an all-American girl and a boy from Zimbabwe and the letter that changed both of their lives forever. It started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin's class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place. Martin was lucky to even receive a pen-pal letter. There were only ten letters, and fifty kids in his class. But he was the top student, so he got the first one. That letter was the beginning of a correspondence that spanned six years and changed two lives. In this compelling dual memoir, Caitlin and Martin recount how they became best friends -- and better people -- through their long-distance exchange. Their story will inspire you to look beyond your own life and wonder about the world at large and your place in it.
It started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin's class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place. All the other kids picked countries like France or Germany, but when Caitlin saw Zimbabwe written on the board, it sounded like the most exotic place she had ever heard of -- so she chose it. Martin was lucky to even receive a pen pal letter. There were only ten letters, and forty kids in his class. But he was the top student, so he got the first one. That letter was the beginning of a correspondence that spanned six years and changed two lives.

-- Industrial-strength code examples, strategies, and conventions for software engineering with C++ and UNIX/Linux. -- Make the most of advanced C++ features: powerful techniques, key tradeoffs. -- CD-ROM contains all of the book's real-world, enterprise-proven code! As software becomes increasingly distributed, high-quality infrastructure becomes ever more important. Precisely written, replete with advanced code examples, and based on Randall Maddox' extensive experience teaching advanced C++, this book gives working C++ developers the insights and sophisticated techniques they need to build superior software infrastructure. Maddox begins by introducing the context required to support a distributed Web application in a Unix environment. He then presents the utility classes that illustrate crucial design and implementation issues and serve as building blocks for a distributed software architecture. Coverage includes concrete data types, templates, containers, namespaces, error handling, and an automated solution for the hazards of dynamic memory allocation. Maddox reviews C++ program startup and memory usage in detail, laying the groundwork for a full of understanding of multiprocessing, multithreading, and interprocess communication. Unlike most advanced C++ books, Distributed Application Programming in C++ goes beyond coding, introducing superior strategies for enterprise software development. Maddox presents key design/implementation tradeoffs, managing source code organization, build-time issues, the run-time environment, and more. For all professional developers who want to master the use of advanced C++ features in real-world distributed applications.
