Programming in C++

Course Description

This course provides a practical hands-on introduction to the C++ programming language. Participants will learn the central concepts of the C++ language, with emphasis on the use of object-oriented techniques in writing robust code.

Intended Audience for the C++ Programming Course

  • This course is for those interested in programming with C++.

C++ Programming Course Objectives

  • Describe object-oriented programming techniques.
  • Use the syntax and semantics of the C++ programming language.
  • Create new classes.
  • Write an object-oriented program in C++.
  • Discovering both initialization and assignment.
  • Describe the process of data abstraction.
  • Create new data types using inheritance.
  • Discover about polymorphism.
  • Use C++ class libraries.
  • Implement exception handling.
  • Write template functions and classes.

C++ Programming Course Benefits

  • Object-oriented (OO) programming offers greater reliability, maintainability & reusability than older, structured programming methods. C++, a language derived from C, supports OO with a high degree of efficiency and portability. C++ is a well-established, mainstream language used across a broad range of applications.
