This advanced C++ training is a course on software design 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. Additionally, the course gives insight into kernel development with C++. The course provides insight into different design strategies (object-oriented programming, functional programming, generic programming) and the philosophy of “Modern C++” and teaches guidelines to develop mature, robust, maintainable, and efficient C++ code.
Please note that this course is not a tutorial on any specific C++ library or tool (as for instance OpenFoam or CUDA), but teaches good, mature software design with the C++ itself.
Since 2020 we provide two types of C++ courses, each offered two times per year:
with two different levels of prerequisites.
Prerequisites Advanced C++ (this course):
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.
Prerequisites Intermediate C++ (other course type):
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++ (e.g. pointers and references, loops, conditionals, classes, ...), basic features (constructors, destructors, ...), and some prior experience with templates and inheritance.
Please choose the course that fits best to you!
After this course, participants will:
In case of an on-site course, participants will be provided Linux machines. For that reason some familiarity with Linux is expected (login with secure shell, shell commands, simple scripts, editor vi or emacs). 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++14 (GCC, Clang, MSVC, ...) can be used. In case of a remote course, participants are expected to use their own machines. The programming tasks, including both Makefiles and CMake files, will be distributed before the course.
