(TTD2150-CP) Effective C++ Programming
Intermediate C++| Next Level Skills for C++ Developers.
Intermediate C++ Programming | Effective C++ is a lab-intensive, hands-on C++ training course geared for experienced C++ programmers who wish to take their development skills to the next level. Students will leave this course armed with the required skills to put advanced C++ programming skills right to work in a practical environment, using sound coding techniques and best practices.
This comprehensive course consists of three modules. A preliminary module reviews topics, including inheritance, the ANSI C++ Standard Library, templates. I/O streams, and practical issues of C++ programming, such as reliability & testing. This material is covered as needed depending on the background of the students.
The second module covers more advanced topics. Advanced issues of inheritance and polymorphism are covered. Principles of effective class design, including, use of composition, templates and interface inheritance. The course covers exception handling and run-time type information (RTTI). Multiple inheritance is covered, including the complications that are introduced by this powerful feature. Advanced applications of C++ concepts are studied, including smart pointers and reference counting.
The third module introduces the Standard C++ Library. The main components of data structures, algorithms and iterators are covered. Illustrations are provided of a number of important containers, such as vectors, stacks, queues, lists and sets. Extensive programming examples and exercises are provided. A number of progressively developed case studies are used to illustrate object oriented programming techniques and to give the student practical experience in putting together features of C++ learned in the course.
Throughout the course, new features of modern C++ (version 11 and beyond) are introduced as well as the impact on programming style. These new features include smart pointers, move constructors, functional programming and lambda expressions.
