Learning to program in C++ requires some serious motivation. Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) is a powerful C++ engine with a full range of features used to create top-notch, exciting games by AAA studios, making it the fun way to dive into learning C++17.

This book starts by installing a code editor so you can begin to write C++17 code. You will then get acquainted with important C++ aspects, such as variables and memory, if, else, and switch, looping, functions and macros, objects, classes, inheritance, and dynamic memory allocation. As we dig into more advanced C++17 concepts, you will also start to explore the functionality the UE4 engine has to offer. You will use the UE4 editor to create your own world, and then program in some seriously fun gameplay. We delve further to discuss building game features, pathfinding, behavior trees, and more, and introduce you to the basics of machine learning and neural networks. We go on to talk about improving UI feedback with UMG and audio. In this edition of the book, we add the latest VR and AR features along with procedural programming.

By the end of this book, you should have a good grasp of how to program in C++17.
