This is a self-paced course that provides an introduction to the C++ programming language. Among the topics covered is the development of command-line programs that utilize different data types, expressions, decision branching, and iteration to solve problems. Students learn to program in C++ through the lectures and the labs. C++ programming material is presented over eight weeks of interactive lectures with weekly quizzes to assess your understanding of the material Students will experience hands-on practice writing C++ programs through ten lab challenges.
Students will experience the development cycle by compiling their C++ programs from human-readable source code to machine-readable object code. They will then link their objects to create an executable that can be run interactively.
