Advanced C++ Programming (Modern Advanced C++) is a lab-intensive, hands-on C++ training course geared for experienced C++ programmers who wish to take their development skills to the next level. Students will leave this course armed with the required skills to put advanced C++ programming skills right to work in a practical environment, using sound coding techniques and best practices.
This comprehensive course consists of three modules. A preliminary module reviews topics, including inheritance, the ANSI C++ Standard Library, templates. I/O streams, and practical issues of C++ programming, such as reliability & testing. This material is covered as needed depending on the background of the students.
The second module covers more advanced topics. Unit testing, advanced inheritance & polymorphism are discussed. Memory management along with move constructors and RAII are explored. Templates and generic programming are explored including lambda expressions and functors. The third module is a deep dive into the Standard C++ Library. Containers, Algorithms, Threads and much more. Throughout the course, new features of modern C++ (version 11 and beyond) are introduced as well as the impact on programming style. These new features include smart pointers, move constructors, functional programming and lambda expressions.
