Next Level C++ | Effective C++ Programming (TTD2150)

Intermediate C++ Programming | Effective C++ is a lab-intensive, hands-on C++ training course geared for experienced C++ programmers who wish to take their development skills to the next level. Students will leave this course armed with the required skills to put advanced C++ programming skills right to work in a practical environment, using sound coding techniques and best practices.

This comprehensive course consists of three modules. A preliminary module reviews topics, including inheritance, the ANSI C++ Standard Library, templates. I/O streams, and practical issues of C++ programming, such as reliability & testing. This material is covered as needed depending on the background of the students.

The second module covers more advanced topics. Advanced issues of inheritance and polymorphism are covered. Principles of effective class design, including, use of composition, templates and interface inheritance. The course covers exception handling and run-time type information (RTTI). Multiple inheritance is covered, including the complications that are introduced by this powerful feature. Advanced applications of C++ concepts are studied, including smart pointers and reference counting.

The third module introduces the Standard C++ Library. The main components of data structures, algorithms and iterators are covered. Illustrations are provided of a number of important containers, such as vectors, stacks, queues, lists and sets. Extensive programming examples and exercises are provided. A number of progressively developed case studies are used to illustrate object oriented programming techniques and to give the student practical experience in putting together features of C++ learned in the course.

Throughout the course, new features of modern C++ (version 11 and beyond) are introduced as well as the impact on programming style. These new features include smart pointers, move constructors, functional programming and lambda expressions.

This course is about 50% hands-on lab and 50% lecture, with extensive programming exercises designed to reinforce fundamental skills and concepts taught throughout the course. Throughout the course students will be led through a series of progressively advanced topics, where each topic consists of lecture, group discussion, comprehensive hands-on lab exercises, and lab review. This course is “skills-centric”, designed to train attendees in essential object oriented, intermediate and beyond level C++ development skills, coupling the most current, effective techniques with the soundest coding practices.

Geared for beginners without any prior experience in computer programming, this course will teach students everything they need to become productive in basic level Java programming.  Special emphasis is placed on object-oriented concepts and practices throughout the entire course. Attending students should have recently attended the following course(s) or have practical experience in this area:

  • TTE9700 Introduction to C++ Programming

This is an intermediate level development course designed for developers with prior C++ programming experience. Students without prior C++ programming background should take the pre-requisite training.
