C++ Programming By Example

Video description

Practical projects to get you up and running with C++17

About This Video

  • Learn C++ programming with exciting projects that bridge the gap between learning and doing
  • Play with C++ as you get hands-on experience with various projects
  • Get up and running with GUI programming concepts as you play with some fun projects using Qt

In Detail

C++ is a flexible and generic language that offers a wide range of benefits with key strengths being software infrastructure and resource-constrained applications. This course is an introductory guide to C++ that will help you learn the language through multiple hands-on examples.

You’ll begin by diving into the C++ basics, syntax, and generic programming features. We’ll then move on to using data structures and algorithms with C++. Next, you’ll delve into the object-oriented features of C++ with another practical example.

Finally, you’ll further enhance your C++ programming skills by creating multiple GUI, desktop applications using Qt5. By the end of this course, you will have gained knowledge of core programming concepts in C++, and how to implement them effectively.
