Course Length: 3 days

Course Description

Advanced C++ will give you the confidence to efficiently tackle any C++ project. You will learn how to structure your code for readability, streamline code for speed and functionality, and seamlessly generate and incorporate libraries.

Overview

C++ is one of the most widely used programming languages and is applied in a variety of domains, right from gaming to graphical user interface (GUI) programming and even operating systems. If you're looking to expand your career opportunities, mastering the advanced features of C++ is key.


The course begins with advanced C++ concepts by helping you decipher the sophisticated C++ type system and understand how various stages of compilation convert source code to object code. You'll then learn how to recognize the tools that need to be used in order to control the flow of execution, capture data, and pass data around. By creating small models, you'll even discover how to use advanced lambdas and captures and express common API design patterns in C++. As you cover later lessons, you'll explore ways to optimize your code by learning about memory alignment, cache access, and the time a program takes to run. The concluding lesson will help you to maximize performance by understanding modern CPU branch prediction and how to make your code cache-friendly.


By the end of this course, you'll have developed programming skills that will set you apart from other C++ programmers. After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Delve into the anatomy and workflow of C++
  • Study the pros and cons of different approaches to coding in C++
  • Test, run, and debug your programs
  • Link object files as a dynamic library
  • Use templates, SFINAE, constexpr if expressions and variadic templates
  • Apply best practice to resource management

Scope

This fast-paced course is designed to teach you concepts quickly through descriptive graphics and challenging exercises. The course will have "call-outs," with key take away points and the most common pitfalls to keep you interested, while breaking up the topics into manageable sections.

Target Audience

If you have worked in C++ but want to learn how to make the most of this language, especially for large projects, this course is for you. A general understanding of programming and knowledge of using an editor to produce code files in project directories is a must. Some experience with strongly typed languages, such as C and C++, is also recommended.
