Course Overview

While C++ may not be seen as a natural choice for a beginner course in programming due to its intricacies, this is still a good introductory programming language. The intricacies actually present a great opportunity to uncover the fundamentals of programming that are so vital to a well grounded programmer.

This course is also a doorway to a deeper study of programming in C++, which is still the industry standard for systems software development. It will stand you in good stead to bore down into the details of the language, and some of the most interesting problems in programming that it is used to solve.

Course Syllabus

Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:



SECTION 1

C the Bigger Picture

Start understanding the C++ language, what it gives us and how to use it. We'll be getting a good understanding of how to reign in the immense flexibility and power C++ gives us through a variety of statements and structures, and how to handle when it goes wrong.

SECTION 2

Data for Thought

We'll begin to see how we can make our programs do what we want, through basic decision making - given a little bit of data and logic - alongside some branching and repetition to make it all run even smoother. We can even throw in a self-made game just for fun and good practice.
