Introduction to C++ Programming | Intensive C++ (TTC2100-C)

Gain the Skills you need to Develop Robust, Scalable and Reliable Modern C++ Applications

GK# 8835

Course Overview

TOP

Introduction to C++ Programming / Intensive C++ is a skills-focused, hands-on C++ training course geared for experienced programmers who need to learn C++ coupled with sounds coding skills and best practices for OO development.  Students will leave this course armed with the required skills to put foundation-level C++ programming skills right to work in a practical environment.

The central concepts of C++ syntax and style are taught in the context of using object-oriented methods to achieve reusability, adaptability and reliability. Emphasis is placed on the features of C++ that support abstract data types, inheritance, and polymorphism. Students will learn to apply the process of data abstraction and class design. Practical aspects of C++ programming including efficiency, performance, testing, and reliability considerations are stressed throughout. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.

If your team requires different topics or tools, additional skills or a different approach, this course may be further adjusted to accommodate.  We offer additional related C++ programming, development, design and security courses which may be blended with this course for a track that best suits your learning objectives. Our team will collaborate with you to understand your needs and will target the course to focus on your specific learning objectives and goals.
