Building Blocks of Application Development with C++ [Video]

More Information
  • Set up a working environment essential for application development
  • Begin using various elements of the C++ language
  • Explore the anatomy of a simple, yet powerful application built with C++
  • Build your own application with C++
  • Master debugging techniques to ensure that your application is always running smoothly
  • Familiarize yourself with console mode and GUI mode for application development
  • Use various toolkits/libraries for large-scale application development

Being a general-purpose programming language, C++ has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing facilities for low-level memory manipulation. Learning the skills to be biased toward system programming and embedded programming, resource-constrained, and large systems, with performance, efficiency, and flexibility of use are essential building blocks of application development.

This course will introduce you to object-oriented programming (OOP). It includes an in-depth analysis of classes and the associated OOP concepts, which will empower you to implement the concepts of object-oriented programming (OOP) in real life scenarios. It also provides you with the essential know-how to tackle challenges while writing your code.

Toward the end of each section, you’ll be introduced to the practical implementation of the concepts. So, get ready to get practical with advanced concepts in C++ such as Templates, Namespaces, Exception Handling, C++ Preprocessor, Pointers, and Functions. This tutorial will give you all you need to know about working with OOP in C++. All the code and supporting files for this course are available on Github at
