Learn how to build data-driven websites and make RESTful API calls using C++.
C++ has re-emerged as a go-to language for developing high-performance websites and web applications. C++ compiles to machine code, making it faster to start up and execute. For users, this means less time waiting for a site to render. This course teaches developers how to build a website powered by a MongoDB database and deploy it with a Heroku cloud server, all with C++. Instructor Troy Milesâa senior software developerâshows how to build and deliver HTML webpages; upload, download, and parse JSON data; make RESTful API calls; and even do real-time communication using WebSockets. Along the way, he shows how to resolve one of the main challenges of C++ web developmentâa complex toolchain that must be synced in development and productionâusing Docker containers.
