Course detail

Practical programming in C++

FEKT-CPPCAcad. year: 2019/2020

Basic aim of this course is learning C++ basics like C extension (C basics are learned in BPC2A course).
The C++ extensions are: non object C++ features, Basic object features, standard libraries. There are also learned object programming concepts and tools for C++ programming.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The student is able:
- to read object oriented program,
- to write object oriented C++ programm with inheritance, polymorphism,
- to use streams for input and output,
- to make basic template design.


Attending BPC1 and BPC2 courses or similar.
