How to Program in C++
Discover the fundamentals of C++ programming
C++ is a multi-purpose programming language used for software engineering, operating systems, games development, and more for over four decades.
On this five-week course, you’ll be introduced to the fundamentals of programming in C++. You’ll learn to build a range of applications and gain the skills necessary to kickstart your career in programming.
Investigate the basics of Object-Oriented Programming (OOP)
C++ is one of the most popular object-oriented programming languages, a language founded in classes and objects rather than logic and functions.
By understanding the principles of C++ programming, you’ll be able to develop skills in other OOP languages, including Python, Java, Ruby, and PHP, enhancing your future employability.
Learn how C++ functions through project based learning
On this course, you’ll familiarise yourself with C++ concepts including variables, data types, operators, control statements, arrays, vectors, and functions.
You’ll then put your understanding of C++ operations into practice, building fun step-by-step projects. In doing so, you’ll gain the skills to create applications and be able to apply your knowledge in your choice of programming career.
Explore the Standard Template Library (STL)
The Standard Template Library contains C++ templates featuring data structures and functions commonly used in C++ programming.
You’ll gain an overview of the types of operations that can be carried out using the STL, allowing you to complete programming projects quickly and more efficiently.
By the end of this course, you’ll have a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and capabilities of C++ programming. You’ll be able to confidently create applications in C++ and be able to adapt your learning to complete projects in C++ and other OOP languages.
