What We Offer
The course follows on from our other C++ course, A Practical Introduction to C++, and aims to develop your skills to the point where you can develop large and complex applications. Here, we focus on writing efficient (both in terms of memory and speed), manageable, stable (error-managed) code. We discuss how to develop large software projects, including: setting up a build system, writing scaleable code, error-catching, managing multi-developer software, version control and code maintenance.
This course assumes familiarity with C++ and the basic ideas of programming with loop, if-statements, etc. Advanced topics like templates, inheritances, etc. will be covered in this course. If you do not have any background in C++ this can be gained from our other course A Practical Introduction to C++ , which is taught immediately before the course allowing you to do both courses in one week.
Our trainers have significant experience using C++ in the commercial, industrial and academic sectors and, as such, can impart knowledge regarding the specific applications of C++ coding in addition to the general use of the language itself.
