Course C++ Programming Basics

Do you want to develop further as a C++ programmer after attending the Programming in C course? Then this intensive, practice-oriented course is an excellent choice. In four intensive training days you will be introduced to all aspects of programming in C++. At the end of the training you will have a broad and deep insight in the possibilities of C++, you will have put all theoretical concepts into practice and you will be a professional C++ programmer.


In a varied programme of four days you will learn the differences between C and C++. You will acquire knowledge of function overloading, references and namespaces in a thorough and efficient manner. Theory will be linked to practical situations. Important features of the standard C++ library, such as the string class, streams and the basics of STL, will be dealt with by the experienced software development trainer. The C++ class concept and the C++ implementation of object-oriented principles such as abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism will be central to the training. It will also cover dynamic memory allocation, operator overloading, dynamic binding, virtual functions, multiple inheritance and templates. Finally, attention is paid to exception handling in C++.


The following topics are covered in this training:

Day 1:

  • Function overloading
  • Combining C and C++
  • Scope resolution operator
  • Const qualifier
  • Namespaces
  • The Standard C++ library
  • New style headers
  • The C++ string type (or string vs char *)
  • I/O streams
  • Console I/O
  • Stream manipulators
  • String stream (or ostringstream vs sprintf)
  • C++ file I/O (or fstream vs FILE *)

Day 2:

  • A first glance at the STL
  • Containers, iterators and algorithm
  • Vector < > and list < > containers
  • Classes In C++
  • Class members
  • Constructor/destructor
  • Member functions
  • Accessing data members
  • Const objects

Day 3:

  • Dynamic Memory Allocation In C++
  • The copy constructor
  • Assignment operator
  • Operator overloading in C++
  • Additional features of C++ classes
  • Static data members
  • Friends
  • Overloading new and delete

Day 4:

  • Inheritance and Polymorphism In C++
  • Class hierarchy
  • Virtual functions
  • Polymorphism
  • Virtual function table
  • Pure virtual functions
  • Abstract classes
  • Multiple inheritance
  • Templates
  • Exception handling
