- Introduction to C++, variables and initialization, control structures.
- At the end of the day, the attendees will able to explain what C++ is, how its compilation model works, and what it can be used for. They will also be able to read and write basic applications comprising of data structures and general control structures.
- Functions, classes and inheritance.
- At the end of the day, attendees will be able to read and write more advanced applications using data and control structures, and functions. They will be able to properly organize their code using functions and object-oriented data structures such as classes.
- Memory organization and management, error handling and exceptions, generic programming and templates.
- At the end of the day, attendees will understand the basic mechanics and important implications of memory management in C++. They will be able to employ exceptions as a means for structured error handling. Also, they will be able to use templates to create type-generic, compile-time instantiated code.
- The standard library, algorithms and iterators, operators and operator overloading. Optional topics (on request): constant expressions, the C++ tooling and information ecosystem.
- At the end of the day, attendees will have good sense of the C++ toolbox: the standard library. They will be able to employ algorithms and iterators, some of the most important parts of the standard library. Also, they will be able to use operator overloading to fully integrate their custom data structures into the language vocabulary. When leaving the course, they are left with handles to sources for further professional development in C++.
