#327

For those with a background in a procedural programming language, this course provides a foundation in C++ syntax and usage, as well as object-oriented programming. With this training, you learn how to use C++ functions and variables, leverage advanced features — including constructors, destructors, inheritance, and polymorphism — and gain an understanding of how C++ offers greater ability than C.

  • At least one year of programming experience using a compiled, procedural language such as Pascal, FORTRAN, COBOL, PL/1, or Ada
  • Prior experience with C, C++, or Java is not assumed
  • HTML or SQL experience alone is not adequate

Introduction to C++ Programming Training Delivery Methods

  • After-course instructor coaching benefit
  • After-course computing sandbox included
