About this video

C++ is considered as “hard to learn”. Well, it’s harder to learn than other languages such as Python or JavaScript, but in return, you get some huge advantages: you can code with one of the most powerful languages in the world, which opens many possibilities that are not available with other “less powerful” languages.

In this course, you will learn C++ with four distinct levels. For each level, you get a quick introduction video to make the relation between various levels and explain what we are going to do and hands-on lessons to introduce new key concepts. At the end of the level, there are some exercises to practice on the key points of the section and combine the concepts together.

Each level builds directly on top of the previous levels so make sure you do not skip any level.

Here is a quick overview of the concepts you will discover (and practice on):

Level 1: Write a program, variables, arrays, vectors, user input

Level 2: Functions, scope, comments, namespaces

Level 3: Conditions (if), for loops, while loops

Level 4: References, prototypes, compilation from the terminal

You will also have an extra bonus section on Object-Oriented Programming, which is common nowadays and will be a nice addition to your skill set.

By the end of the course, you will understand how to organize your C++ code with .hpp and .cpp files and write OOP code with C++.
