Advanced C++ with Focus on Software Engineering

Tuesday, October 23 - Thursday, October 25, 2018,  9:00 - 17:00

Topics: This advanced C++ training is a course on object-oriented (OO) software design with the C++ programming language. The focus of the training are the essential OO and C++ software development principles, concepts, idioms, and best practices, which enable programmers to create professional, high-quality code. The course will not address special areas and applications of C++, such as for instance Template Meta Programming (TMP), or the quirks and curiosities of the C++ language. It rather teaches guidelines to develop mature, robust, and maintainable C++ code

Teacher:  Klaus Iglberger (External)
