Learn about move semantics, lambda expressions, smart pointers, concurrency, template, STL & more
What you'll learn:
Use C++ as an object-oriented language
Demystify function & class templates
Use STL components in your applications
Write real-world applications in C++
Apply Modern C++ (C++11/14/17) in programs
Learn C++in depth with modern features introduced with C++11/14/17
Updated with C++17 features!
C++ is a general purpose programming language invented by Bjarne Stroustrup. It is still one of the more popular programming languages, used for creating high performance applications across a wide variety of domains &platforms.
In 2011, C++11 was born. This revision added lot of new features to the language and it got a new name, Modern C++. This emphasizes writing C++ code using modern features of the language such as move semantics, automatic type inference, threading, lambda expressions, smart pointers and a lot more. C++11 was followed by C++14, that added even more features and enhanced existing ones. C++17 released in 2017 added a filesystem library (covered in the course), parallel versions of STL algorithms, new library types such as std::optional, std::any and more.
This course teaches C++ as an object oriented language with modern features. It focuses on teaching C++concepts, bothold and new, with clear examples. It builds upon the basic language facilities that are then used to build more complex programs with classes, operator overloading, composition, inheritance, polymorphism, templates, concurrency, etc. Iteven digs deep into assembly to understand few concepts better.After every few topics, a quiz is presented that tests your understanding of the previous topics. Have fun learning Modern C++.
Note that this course is not for you if
You have never programmed before
You don't know ANY programming language
You want to learn basics of programming
