C++ Boot Camp

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

The course briefly reviews some core C concepts and then transitions into an examination of what C++ adds to this picture. Emphasis is placed on the value of C++ in effective modeling of the problem domain as well as enabling and enhancing code-reuse and code-evolution. Major topics include basic class concepts (memory management, data access, abstract classes, etc.), function usage (passing data to/from functions, friend functions, overloaded functions, overloaded operators, etc.), inheritance (data visibility, virtual functions, etc.), and some miscellaneous topics (C++ templates and the STL, exception handling, I/O, run-time type information, interfacing with other languages, etc.).

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...
