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:
with two different levels of prerequisites.
