This course will take you from zero to being productive with modern C++, without requiring any previous specific programming knowledge.

This course is designed to give you everything you need to be productive with modern standard C++. Not every aspect of the C++ language is considered (that would be impossible in a few hour course); instead, the course is focused on some important practical-oriented features of the language. The language features discussed in this course will be shown in action with concrete C++ code samples. This course is a mix of slides and C++ demos. Even basic concepts will be explained, using interesting visuals and metaphors. In this course, C++11 from Scratch, you will begin your C++ journey learning how to compile your C++ code. First, you will start from a simple Hello World program. Next, you will learn how to represent data in your C++ programs with types and variables. Then, you will discover how to write code to make decisions and iterating. Finally, you will explore the basics of the STL vector container, and you will learn how to define your own classes. After following this course, you will be able to learn further C++ elements including minor C++14 additions, building on the solid modern C++ knowledge of this course.
