In this 8 week training course we will learn the basics of C++, focusing on the object oriented programming concepts that will help us design efficient, performance-driven and maintainable code. Understanding the basic mechanisms and the original language design will set us up for further exploration of modern C++ (C++11, 14 and beyond). At the end of this course you will know how C++ differs from C, understand the basic tenets of object oriented programming and generic programming and gain some familiarity with STL functions and containers.
