About this Course
We'll begin by covering C++ foundational, object-oriented programming principles and data types. You'll learn about various features and practice using them while developing and testing C++ programs of moderate complexity.
You’ll examine the process of moving from the problem statement to a well-thought-out C++ object-centered design. Moving deeper into the development process, we’ll study models, modeling and several different tools that can help us manage software complexity and develop high-quality software applications.
Next, we’ll look at the C++ extensions and additions to the C language. We’ll examine the class construct, objects and messages, as well as the ideas of classes and inheritance — two of the strengths of C++ and object-oriented design. We'll conclude by extending the notion of reusability with the topic of polymorphism.
By the end of the class, you’ll have a working knowledge of object-oriented programming (OOP) fundamentals and be able to design, write and debug programs in C++.
Get Hands-on Experience
You’ll complete a programming project based on a scaled-down simulation of a real-world example. While developing and practicing good software design methodologies using the C++ language, you’ll write the project’s specifications, design description and test plan as well as implement and test the final product.
