Object Oriented Programming in C++

C++ is one of the most efficient object-oriented programming languages, built on top on C. It is widely considered as a base for learning other object oriented programming languages. This course provides a strong foundation in the understanding of OOP using C++.

Course Benefits

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • See Object Oriented Programming (OOP) as a better way of writing more maintainable, reunsable and extensible code
  • Understand the cornerstones of OOP: Classes, Objects, Data Encapsulation, Data Hiding, Data Abstraction, Polymorphism, Inheritance and Message Passing
  • Appreciate the advantages of using C++ over C, including inline functions, default arguments, references, type checking, anonymous unions and enums, etc.
  • Model real world entities in the form of classes and define their behaviour
  • Define and understand terms like function overloading, function overriding, constructors, destructors, static members, constant members, private and public members, protected members, friends, member initialization lists, mutable members, etc.
  • Use improved memory management with new and delete
  • Overload operators and teach the compiler how to perform operations
  • Extend and reuse classes using Inheritance
  • Implement dynamic polymorphism using virtual functions
  • Understand the so-called dreaded diamond problem and solve it using virtual base classes and virtual inheritance
  • Use streams as a replacement to buffers to format and perform I/O and file operations
  • Deal with exceptions and create your own exception classes and objects and handle them
  • Work with templates to create generic functions and generic data types
