Training in C++ Programming

Additional Material: Download Course Slides Link

This course is aimed at students who need to get up to speed in C++. The course introduces object-oriented concepts and shows how they are implemented in C++. The course does not require awareness or familiarity with object-oriented programming techniques, but programming experience of some kind is assumed.

  • Introduction to C++: Key features of C++; Defining variables; Formulating expressions and statements; Built-in data types; Console input/output
  • Operators and types: Assignment; Compound Assignment; Increment and decrement operators; Const declarations; Type conversions
  • Going Further with Data Types: Enumerations; Arrays; Using the standard vector class; Using the standard string class; Structures
  • Flow of Control: Decision making: if, if-else, and switch; Looping: for loops, while loops, and do-while loops
  • Defining functions: Declaring, calling and defining functions; Function overloading; Defining default arguments; Pass-by-copy versus pass-by-reference; Defining inline functions; Header files and source files
  • Pointers: Overview of pointers; Defining pointers; Dereferencing pointers; Const pointers; Null pointers
  • Overview of Object Oriented Concepts: Classes and objects; Abstraction; Encapsulation; Inheritance and polymorphism
  • Defining Classes: Syntax of class declarations; Public and private members; Creating objects; Using new and delete; Structures vs. classes
  • Implementing Class Functionality: Function overloading; Default arguments; Anonymous arguments; Ambiguities; Resolving scope conflicts; Using the this pointer
  • Defining Constructors and Destructors: Overview of an object’s lifetime; Defining constructors; Constructor chaining; Defining destructors
  • Operator Overloading: Overview of operator functions; Defining unary operators; Defining binary operators; Defining the [] operator; Defining input and output operators
  • Defining Class-Wide Members: Overview; Static data members; Static member functions; Nested types; Friend classes
  • Creating Collections of Objects: The need for collections; Introduction to template classes; Using vector and list; Using iterators; Introduction to template functions; Using the Standard Template Library
  • Copying and Conversions: The copy assignment operator; Copy constructors; Conversions to a class; Conversions from a class
  • Inheritance: Recap of inheritance principles; Defining a subclass; Defining protected members; Scoping and initialisation; Multiple inheritance; Abstract base classes
  • Polymorphism: Recap of polymorphism; Defining virtual functions; Virtual destructors; Pure virtual functions and abstract classes

Who Should Attend:
Developers who are new to object orientation and need to learn C++.
Experience using any contemporary language. No OO experience is required.
