Learning to program in C++ - training course
a conversion course for programmers in other languages

This course has been replaced by an updated Learning to program in C and C++ course

DESCRIPTION
This intensive course teaches the C languages, and the C++ language which transforms C by adding object orientation.
PREREQUISITES
This is a course newcomers to programming. If you have prior programming experience, please book on our C and C++ Programming course. If you are a C Programmer already, looking to add C++ skills, please book for C++ for C Programmers.

SUBJECT BACKGROUND
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.
