C++ for C Programmers and What's New in C++11

מק"ט: #6056 | משך קורס: 40 שעות אק'

C++ is undoubtedly one of the most popular programming languages for software development. It brings language enhancements and object-oriented programming support to C. However, C++ is a large and sometimes difficult language, and even with a C background, a programmer needs to understand C++ programming style as well as C++ constructs to get the best out of it. QA Training's highly successful C++ for C Programmers course has a thorough theoretical and practical coverage of the language. This helps to eliminate the misconceptions and poor programming practice that can cause so many problems.

For experienced C programmers, the course will illustrate how to get the benefits of good software engineering and code reuse by using standard C++ and object-oriented programming techniques in real-world programming situations. There will be ample opportunity to apply these techniques during the practical sessions.
Delegates without extensive C experience should attend our course #4330, C++ for non-C Programmers course instead.
This is a hand on course with a mix of tuition and practical sessions for each technical chapter which reinforce the C++ syntax and object-oriented programming techniques covered in the course.

The course contains an appendix on the latest language enhancements of C++ 11.

  • Define classes
  • Write class member functions
  • Use constructors, destructors and dynamic memory
  • Write code that is efficient and robust
  • Build new classes from other classes using inheritance, composition and association
  • Use template classes
  • Use operator overloading
  • Design and write classes with polymorphic behavior


קהל יעד

  • C Programmers wishing to learn or improve in C++

תנאי קדם

 Delegates must have solid experience of C including structures (i.e. struct and/or class); declaration and use of pointers; function declaration, definition and use with call by value or call by pointer; dynamic memory allocation (i.e. malloc and free, or new and delete); multiple source file projects (requiring project files or makes files).
You should also have a good appreciation of object-oriented principles or have    attended our Object-Oriented Primer course.
 Delegates with less than four months or no recent experience of C should attend the course #4330, C++ for non-C Programmers course instead.
