Course Description:

This is a beginning course on the C++ programming language. It is designed for anyone who has never done programming up to programmers that need a refresher on the basics. The course is divided into approximately 10 weeks. Each week, the student will be given simple assignments to do in class. There will also be homework that will help the student reinforce what they have learned. At the end of week 10 will be a final exam. The final exam will be used as an evaluation only. It is not to determine whether the student passes or fails. It will be used as feedback for how the course can be improved upon and as a tool to help the students determine their weakness. This will allow me to provide extra help after the course to make the student stronger in the areas they are weak in. Upon satisfactory completion, the student will be given a Certificate of Completion. Please note: This course does not offer in any way college credits and the certificate is for your personal use only.

    I forgot to change the time Wed. It will start next Sunday, Feb 24th, not this Sunday. I do not know how to update the schedule. I apologize for any confusion.

      Hey, thanks for the heads up. However, I'm not actually invited - you never took down the invite page once the class filled up. Again, you might want to fix that.

      I know. I don't know how to do that. I am hoping Jeffery can do it. Also, be aware we are planning another class soon. Just have to work out logistics.

    I would like to thank everyone that has shown interest in the class. We are currently full for registration. If you are still interested in taking the class, please email me at [masked]. The reason for this is if someone drops or does not show up for the first class, then they will loose their spot and we will pull from the reserved list. I want everyone to have as much chance at this class as possible. Also, after talking with Jeffery, we are planning on running future classes. The people that sign up on the reserve list will be given priority for future classes. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know at [masked]. Thanks.
