"There is no point in developing software unless you care about it doing it well." (Andrew Hunt, David Thomas: The Pragmatic Programmer)


This advanced C++ online 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. The following topics will be covered: 

Day 1 schedule:

  • Concepts and the STL
  • Overview of the STL
  • Proper use of the STL
    • Proper use of algorithms
    • Proper use of containers

Day 2 schedule:

  • Class Design
    • Compiler Generated Functions
    • Copy Elision
    • Move Semantics
    • Return Values and Parameters
    • Object Lifetimes
    • RAII
    • Member Data

Day 3 schedule:

  • Class Design
    • Applied Class Design
    • Visibility vs. Accessibility
  • Dynamic Polymorphism
    • Motivation
    • Classical Design Patterns Revisited
    • Public Inheritance
    • Surprises in Object Hierarchies


Contents are subject to modifications.

Prerequisites

Solid base on C++ and at least one year of experience with the language is needed.

Hands-On

Participants are expected to use their own machines. Any operating system (Windows, Linux, MacOS, ...), any IDE/editor (MS Visual Studio, CLion, vi, emacs, ...) and any compiler capable of at least C++14 (GCC, Clang, MSVC, ...) can be used. Alternatively it is possible to use a C++ online compiler (e.g. cpp.sh, wandbox.orgrepl.it). The programming tasks, including both Makefiles and CMake files, will be distributed before the course.
