C++ is undoubtedly one of the most popular programming languages for software development. It brings language enhancements and object-oriented programming support to the extremely popular language C . However, C ++ is a large and sometimes difficult language, and even with a C or object oriented background, a programmer needs to understand C ++ programming style as well as C ++ constructs to get the best out of it.
The course is written from a developers rather than an academics perspective, providing a thorough practical coverage of the language. It aims to eliminate common misconceptions and poor programming practice by teaching the features of the language and standard library that enforce good practice.
In particular the course teaches the Modern C++ approach, to deliver clear expressive and efficient code. Although C++11 and more recent additions to the language are taught throughout (including C++ 14 and 17), most of the material is useful and relevant to pre C++11 users.
This is a hands-on course with a mix of tuition and practical sessions for each technical chapter which reinforce the Modern Expressive C ++ programming techniques covered in the course. Delegates will write unit tests to verify their work as they develop a GUI based tool to support their learning.
