This advanced C++ training is a course on object-oriented (OO) software design with the C++ programming language. The focus of the training are the essential OO and C++ software development principles, concepts, idioms, and best practices, which enable programmers to create professional, high-quality code. Additionally, the course gives insight into kernel development with C++. The course will not address special areas and applications of C++, such as for instance Template Meta Programming (TMP), or the quirks and curiosities of the C++ language. It rather teaches guidelines to develop mature, robust, maintainable, and efficient C++ code.
Since 2020 we provide two types of C++ courses, each offered two times per year:
with two different levels of prerequisites.
Prerequisites Intermediate C++ (this course):
Course participants should have basic UNIX/Linux knowledge (login with secure shell, shell commands, simple scripts, editor vi or emacs). At least one year of experience with the language is needed. This includes a good understanding of the basic mechanics (header files, source files, compilation), good knowledge of the syntax of C++, and some experience with templates and inheritance.
Prerequisites Advanced C++ (other course type):
Course participants should have basic UNIX/Linux knowledge (login with secure shell, shell commands, simple scripts, editor vi or emacs). At least two to three years of experience with the language is needed. This includes a solid knowledge of the syntax of C++, experience with both template-based and inheritance-based designs and some experience with design patterns.
Please choose the course that fits best to you!
