This course is intended for non-C programmers who are moving to object oriented programming in C++
This course is a comprehensive, hands-on introduction to object-oriented programming in C++ for non-C programmers. Emphasis is placed on the features of C++ that support effective modeling of the problem domain and reuse of code.
The course consists of two modules. The first module introduces the core C features of C++ with simplified input/output through IOStreams. The module begins with simple hands-on programming using C++ to do input, computation and output. The C++ data types are covered, and simple if tests and loops are covered. C++ program structure is introduced as well as pointers, addressing and arrays.
In the second module, object-oriented concepts are introduced. Participants will study the C++ class construct, C++ memory management, function and operator overloading, the use of references and inheritance. The scope and access control mechanisms of C++ are described.
Extensive programming examples and exercises are provided. The course is current to ANSI standard C++ and is designed so that it can be taught in any environment with an ANSI C++ compiler.
Participants are recommended to have knowledge of a programming language before attending this class.
