C and C++ Programming - training course
a conversion course for programmers in other languages
Duration: 4 days. • Price: £1250.00 (VAT free from January 2019), • Venue: Melksham, Wiltshire

Usually scheduled to meet customer needs or run as a private course. Please email for details
This intensive course teaches the C languages, and the C++ language which transforms C by adding object orientation.
This is a course for students with prior programming experience. We also teach newcomers to programming - our Learning to program in C and C++ course will be more suitable for you.

C++ is a programming language used for major systems, based on the fundamental C language but with additional features such as Object Orientation which make it very suitable for bigger uses. To some extent, C++ has been displaced by other more modern languages, but there's still a number of application areas where it's the ideal choice, and many others where heritage code needs to be maintained.
