Introduction to C++

The Introduction to C++ training course examines the core concepts, language syntax, and APIs required to build C++ applications.

The course begins with a brief review of C concepts and then transitions into an examination of what C++ adds to this picture. Emphasis is placed on the value of C++ in enabling and enhancing code-reuse and code-evolution. During the course, some of the more modern, advanced features of C++ such as the Standard Template Library are touched upon.

Peter started programming before he learned how to use a keyboard properly, after messing around with a Commodore 64, BASIC, and a few cassette tapes.

Starting in the late 1990’s Peter became a passionate contributor to the open source community. As an active participant he has submitted bug fixes and new features to several projects and has released many of his own software packages as open source.

In 2006 Peter left upper management and became a freelance software...

Julian first touched fingers to keypunch in 1972, punching Fortran code onto cards at Imperial College in London (England, that is) and soon moved onto Macro-11 programming on PDP-11s. This qualifies him as a Real Programmer, and until recently, he even had a PDP-11 in his garage at home to remind him of better times.

He learnt Fortran while becoming a geologist at Imperial College, but he has never practised in the rock business, as he succumbed to the...
