What You Cpp is What You Get

Ruth Haephrati and I have been working on our new bookLearning C++, with the amazing team of professionals at Manning Publishing, New York, for over a year now. I am proud to announce that we have reached a huge milestone, as of Aug 30, 2022 (EST), it’s available as part of Manning Early Access Program (MEAP). Now you can get the first chapters immediately, as well as access to a forum where you can post questions and get our answers directly! Ruth and I would like to offer you an exclusive MEAP launch discount code: mlhaephrati (40% off Learning C++ in all formats), and it’s valid through September 13th at http://mng.bz/aPPX .

More chapters to come, and soon the printed version will also be available for purchase.

C++ is alive and kicking and is considered by many to be one of the most powerful and robust programming languages across all platforms. 

Learning C++ by Michael Haephrati and Ruth Haephrati

Here, at Secured Globe, Inc. we use C++ for most of our ventures, projects, and collaborations, such as our SG Revealer, a recently developed Malware Detection Engine, for Anti-Virus products, was developed in C++ and is. In this book, we take a step-by-step journey, laying out the fundamentals of the most modern C++20, and, at the same time, use a practical and simple approach, so you will not only understand the basics of C++ in theory, but you will also learn how to use your new skills in real-life projects and get your hands “dirty” writing code. We explain the “why”, not only the “how”. 

Explaining a bit about Rahumon

Our book is aimed at those with NO previous knowledge or experience with any programming language, or even knowledge in the basics of computer science. Our book is also suitable for those who have some experience in other programming languages and are new to C++.

Project for the blind people

As part of a Secured Globe, Inc. project with Freedom Scientific, Inc., the creators of JAWS, and as part of adding support to Albanian, I developed a small tool for converting PDF files into text so another piece of software we develop can convert thousands of e-books in Albanian and using AI techniques, create an optimal list of sentences in the Albanian language that can be recorded and added to the JAWS platform.

Github issue with previous versions

I work a lot with Github and we, at Secured Globe, Inc. manage our own repo as well. When our programmers push changes in the source code, I somestime need to revert back and I do that by going to the previous version, download it, and compare to the recent one, then update it and push.

I contacted Github’s support after finding out that when I go to a previous version of the source code, and downloading it, I get the latest version.
This wasn’t like that before and seems to be a bug in their system.

I created a small POC video:

I received the following response today:

Hi Michael,

Thanks for reporting this!

We have had a few reports of this bug over the last couple of days and our engineers are looking in to it. It’s very useful for us to have more data points, so thank you for submitting this report! I’ve passed it on to the team.

As a temporary workaround, you can manually construct the download URL with the commit SHA you want to download:


I’m afraid our system is going to mark this ticket as “solved” now that the issue has been created with the engineering team, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about it! In the meantime, please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you and we will be happy to assist!
