CSS3 for Web Designers and Developers
Private Training

Course Summary

C++, based on the C programming language, is an Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) language. Unlike C, C++ is built on the concept of “objects” instead of using data and actions on data as the basis for the program’s logic. Using OOP, related data and routines are grouped into an object that then relates to other objects in the program. These objects can represent all of the parts and functions of a real entity or an abstract idea. C++ is a powerful language that is inherently useful for large-scale projects.

In this hands-on course, students will design and write programs in the C++ language. Emphasis is placed on object-oriented techniques, such as inheritance and function overloading to implement polymorphism. The class ends with an introduction to the Standard Template Library (STL).

Web designers and developers already familiar with cascading style sheets.
