Rapid C++ [Video]

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

This course will introduce you to the language and you will start programming with C++. We will start with how to install a working C++ compiler, IDE (Integrated Development Environment) and a debugger. These are essential tools to get yourself started with C++ development.

The course will kick off by getting to know the basics of C++ programming. Within this course, we will demonstrate the basic building blocks of a C++ program. Taking this course will arm you with essential skills in concepts that are used to write larger programs. By the end of this tutorial, you will be confident in your ability to program with C++. This course will show you practical, hands-on experience with advanced language concepts which will be useful when you developing larger applications. You will get familiar with the concept of organizing large applications into smaller yet manageable functions, structures, and classes.

Style and Approach

This course will cover basic of relevant topics in C++ which will help audience build up skills in future. Focus will be on the multiple operating systems thereby enabling the audience to develop skills on another operating system as and when required.
