This project: 

    http://astrolabe.sourceforge.net/ 

...is implemented in both Python and C++. I do the Python version first and
then translate to C++ as directly as possible, using namespaces, exception
handling, the standard string type and STL library.

Let me second the recommendation of the Scott Meyers books. And another which
I no longer have -- something like "The C++ Memory Model" -- was very
instructive.
