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. 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.
This hybrid event will take place online and at HLRS, University of Stuttgart Nobelstraße 19 70569 Stuttgart, Germany Room 0.439 / Rühle Saal Location and nearby accommodations

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 the standard library (std::vector, std::list, …), hands-on experience with both template-based and inheritance-based designs and some experience with design patterns.
In the on-site course, participants will be provided Linux machines. For that reason some familiarity with Linux is beneficial. Alternatively, participants will be able to use their own machines. Any operating system (Windows, Linux, MacOS, ...), any IDE/editor (MS Visual Studio, CLion, vi, emacs, ...) and any compiler capable of at least C++17 (GCC, Clang, MSVC, ...) can be used. In the online course, participants are expected to use their own devices. The programming tasks, including both Makefiles and CMake files, will be distributed before the course.
The course language is German. The slides are in English.
If you want a similar course in English, then please look at the 3- or 4-day advanced C++ courses at LRZ , the 4 day course at VSC in Vienna or directly on Klaus Iglberger's course page.

Each participant will get a copy of all slides (PDF).
Besides the content of the training itself, another important aspect of this event is the scientific exchange among the participants. We try to facilitate such communication by

This course will be hybrid, i.e. it will take place at HLRS on-site but it will also be possible to attend online. Participants, online as well as on-site, have to be aware and agree that they might appear in the live video stream taken by a camera in the back of the lecture room or by a webcam on laptops. The live stream will not be saved. We strongly recommend to attend this course on-site since on-site attendance is much more effective and efficient in our experience. Therefore we might give priority to on-site over online participants during registration.
Registration closes on November 5, 2023 (extended registration phase).
Late registrations after that date are still possible according to the course capacity, possibly with reduced quality of the handout.
Our course fee includes coffee breaks (in classroom courses only).
We plan to have lunch in the unversity's canteen (Mensa Stuttgart-Vaihingen, have a look at their menu online). Two other near possibilities for lunch are on all days:
We will update this information if opening times etc. change and inform you more precisely before the course starts.
