ONLINE COURSE: Modern C++ Software Design (Intermediate)

Overview

This course will be provided as ONLINE course (using Zoom).

This intermediate C++ training is a course on software development with the C++ programming language. The focus of the training are the essential C++ software development principles, concepts, idioms, and best practices, which enable programmers to create professional, high-quality code. The course will give insight into the different aspects of C++ (object-oriented programming, functional programming, generic programming) and will teach 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:

  • intermediate: Mar. 2-5, 2021 (this course), and July 6-9, 2021 
  • advanced: May 4-7, 2021, and Nov. 23-26, 2021

with two different levels of prerequisites.

Prerequisites
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!
