Wkn32 in the day and perhaps still true todayCharles Petzold ‘s Programming Windows was the definitive source for learning to program Windows. The book is so old that even I used it to learn Windows programming, back when everything was bit and uphill both ways. The most recent edition is Programming Windows, 5th Editionwhich was published way back in What has he been doing since then?

Chrles, I could still be right: Perhaps he could subtitle his book The New Old Thing.

Now it gets really interesting: If you order the Release Preview eBook, then it comes with a free upgrade to the final eBook. Can it get even more interesting ccharles that?

Because the price of getting in on the action increases the longer you wait. But in order to take advantage of this offer, you have to follow the instructions on this blog entry from Microsoft Press and read the mandatory legal mumbo-jumbo, because the lawyers always get their say. And it’s a good thing I turned them down, because imagine if I decided to write the book and found that Charles Petzold was coming out of retirement to write his own book.

chrles My book would have done even worse than my first bookwhich didn’t even have any competition! Charles Petzold did not pay me to write this, nor did he offer me a cut of his royalties for shilling his book. But that doesn’t mean I won’t accept it! Are you listening, Charles?

Or even better, ain32 the C as reference, and use whatever language you like. For me the opposite. Sadly if you order the Home Basic or Home Premium editions you will not have access to even-numbered pages, section titles or the index, and the maximum font size will be 8pt. Uh, sounds a bit fishy to me. I guess technically both books teach you how to “Program Windows”, but the APIs are so dramatically different that it doesn’t seem right to publish it under the petxold title.

Charles Petzold is back with another edition of Programming Windows – The Old New Thing

He should change it to something like “Programming Windows via Windows Runtime”. I won’t be surprised in the least when design-once-compile-to-everything tools for Android and iOS development add Windows 8 to their target set. Ah, Programing Windows, one of the core books I used when learning Win32 back in the day I had both 4th and 5th win332.

Your list of Petzold’s amazing Hawaiian output excludes the page ebook “Programming Windows Phone 7” http: Your book is sitting on my shelf next to Windows Internals, that’s gotta count for something: I’m confused about all the people confused by the “Sixth Edition” part of things. A lot has happened in 14 years. That’s a really wwin32 model for selling a book.

I bought a copy, if for no other reason than to see more books do this. I have Petzold’s “Programming Windows with C ” from ; I wonder why this isn’t counted as the next edition of that series.

Didn’t realize I had to provide a comprehensive list. Although both books are packed in the box now. My current flat is too small for having bookselves.


I guess that’s my problem, I thought this was an updated version of the much earlier books to cover win32 in windows 8 but that’s not what this book is. I’m sure it’s a great book but not the one I want: Perhaps one day I might need it ; So thanks for the tip! I think really the reason why most of us were expecting a book without so much C is the way Raymond set it up in his post! Also, look at his publishing history http: Why publish those books under their own titles and this perzold under an already established title?

This pehzold book should be called “Programming Windows Runtime” or whatever instead of hijacking a previous series. The first three editions were not Win32; that didn’t appear in any form until the fourth edition that addressed Windows Only the fifth edition could be considered completely Win Although I was asked to do another edition for.

Maybe I’ll send you an autographed copy of my book use it to raise up your monitor another inch and I’ll send a long a copy of your book and return mailer.

You can get the following excellent Petzpld books from Amazon. Proise’s book follows a very similar organization that mirrors Petzold’s “Programming Windows” series.
