C/C++ has been used for many years to write some of the best applications for many of the computers out there.

  • Have you ever wanted to learn C/C++?
  • Looked at code and thought it looked graceful yet complex?

Going me and in this course I teach you how to program the fast, powerful and popular C++ programming language from scratch, only assuming you have basic computer.

Learn by example with over 15 (and growing) code examples plus lectures to explain key concepts in C++.

C++ has been favoured by the professional programmers for many years because of its power and flexibility. Many games have been written in C++. Many of the scripting languages modelled on the syntax and style.

Even today C++ is a popular language, even still amongst the indie game programmers. Its flexible enough to create a Windows UI or program a Unix TCP server.

C++ is a challenging language; but in this course I take you step by step through the basics. Building you skills and through many code examples I show you how to build a program and how to create C++ classes and objects.

So, don't delay, start learning today and you could be using these basics in your next computer program.

5th June 2015 - Course Update

Template classes are great; they provide a way of create a class to manipulate a data type even when you are not sure what that datatype will be. I've just added a new lecture that shows you an example Template Class and how they are used. Enjoy.

9th June 2015 - Course Update

3 new lectures added. One on Linked Lists, one on Enum and third on Union. Enjoy

Software Engineer, Webpage Developer and Scrum Master

Developer, Video Creator, Podcaster and Mentor. Just 4 titles that could describe me and what I do.

I’ve been working in the IT industry for 18 years now and have worked as a Developer, Scrum Master and Team Leader. I’ve also been a student of many as well as mentored many others during that time.

I’ve created video content on YouTube; some popular and some not so. This helped me in gaining the experience to creating good video content for my training courses.

I’ve also spent some time creating podcasts over the years; more recently with a new podcast related to ‘Geekz Talk’(just a plug). – giving me yet more gain and experience on giving content to people and providing more for everyone who is looking for extra content.

I’m here to give to you my experience; my industry lesson learnt and my voice to help you move forward in the subject you want to learn.
