C++ Procedural Programming

New York University (NYU) via edX

Overview

This is the 1st course in the intermediate, undergraduate-level offering that makes up the larger Programming and Data Structures MicroBachelors program. We recommend taking them in order, unless you have a background in these areas already and feel comfortable skipping ahead.

  1. Introduction to Programming in C++
  2. Advanced Programming in C++
  3. Introduction to Data Structures
  4. Advanced Data Structures

These topics build upon the learnings that are taught in the introductory-level Computer Science Fundamentals MicroBachelors program, offered by the same instructor.

This is a self-paced course that provides an introduction to the C++ programming language. Among the topics covered is the development of command-line programs that utilize different data types, expressions, decision branching, and iteration to solve problems. Students learn to program in C++ through the lectures and the labs. C++ programming material is presented over eight weeks of interactive lectures with weekly quizzes to assess your understanding of the material Students will experience hands-on practice writing C++ programs through ten lab challenges.

Students will experience the development cycle by compiling their C++ programs from human-readable source code to machine-readable object code. They will then link their objects to create an executable that can be run interactively.
