Software engineers, programmers, and analysts who will be designing and creating programs using C++. Anyone desiring the ability to read and understand C++ programs for maintenance and update purposes. (See the Prerequisites section, below.)
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Students are invited to bring their current ideas and questions to the classroom for discussion. Lecture, group problem solving, and online laboratories will be used. Students will be encouraged to enhance their skills utilizing the techniques presented through classroom problem solving and controlled online workshops. This course is approximately 50% labwork.
This course does not concentrate on the use of any one particular development tool. Instead, the students are encouraged to learn the proper design and implementation techniques by hand-coding their applications. If development tools are available at the training site, the instructor will demonstrate their use and guide the students in the use of such tools.
Experience in C programming (primarily language syntax) is especially recommended, although familiarity with multiple programming languages will make this requirement less strict. If you have any doubts about whether you need a C language refresher, visit our Online C Language Review (see below).
This course can be trimmed to 4 days, with a single day of C language refresher and labs removed. This refresher does not teach the entire C language, but will cover enough of the details for this C++ course to be completed.
