GSI C++ Course Spring 2009

The course

  • starts Thursday, April 2, 2009, 13:00 at the Schulungsraum IT (SB3 1.239a);
  • consists of afternoon blocks each 1.5h lecture and 1.5-2h hands-on training;
  • prerequisite is knowledge of another programming language.

It is based on the textbook:

Bjarne Stroustrup: Programming: Principles and Practice using C++, Addison-Wesley 2009, ISBN 978-0321543721.

For the scope of the course see the back cover of the book:

Preparation for Programming in the Real World The book assumes that you aim eventually to write non-trivial programs, whether for work in software development or in some other technical field.

Focus on Fundamental Concepts and Techniques The book explains fundamental concepts and techniques in greater depth than traditional introductions. This approach will give you a solid foundation for writing useful, correct, maintainable, and efficient code.

Programming with Today's C++ The book is an introduction to programming in general, including object-oriented programming and generic programming. It is also a solid introduction to the C++ programming language, one of the most widely used languages for real-world software. The book presents modern C++ programming techniques from the start, introducing the C++ standard library to simplify programming tasks.

For Beginners -- And Anyone Who Wants to Learn Something New The book is primarily designed for people who have never programmed before, and it has been tested with more than 1,000 first-year university students. However, practitioners and advanced students will gain new insight and guidance by seeing how a recognized master approaches the elements of his art.

Provides a Broad View The first half of the book covers a wide range of essential concepts, design and programming techniques, language features, and libraries. Those will enable you to write programs involving input, output, computation, and simple graphics. The second half explores more specialized topics, such as text processing and testing, and provides abundant reference material.
The lecture program in detail will evolve and can be influenced by the needs of the participants.
