COURSE # SOO-673
INTRODUCTION TO PROGRAMMING IN C++
Intensive, hands-on introduction to C++ language, its unique features and applications.
Among numerous software programming languages, C++ emerged as a preferred structured language for Object Oriented Programming. Its widespread use in science, technology and business further attest to its importance. This intensive course introduces C++ language, its features, benefits and pitfalls to avoid. It covers basic C++ techniques including classes, inheritance, polymorphism and templates and expands to higher level functions. Most of the course sessions will be presented in a computer lab, where concrete, hands-on programming examples will reinforce the material covered.
Applications and benefits:
You will benefit by enhancing your understanding of the :
- Programming in C++ and its benefits.
- Numerous tips and shortcuts for successful C++ programming.
- Use of popular C++ libraries and development environments.
- Concepts such as abstract data type, inheritance, polymorphism, virtual functions and abstract classes.
- Ways to develop your own C++ libraries.
- Use of the C++ templates.
Who should attend:
This intensive course introduces C++ programming language, its features, applications and benefits. It is designed for experienced programmers who wish to learn C++ in a concise, comprehensive hands-on presentation. Prior knowledge of C, although useful, is not necessary; however, experience with some structured programming language such as C, Pascal or Ada is essential.
