Course Description

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

What are the requirements?

  • Basic understanding of computers
  • No prior C++ knowledge

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Create a C/C++ Program
  • Understand Variable, Loops and other fundamental C++ programming structure
  • To be able to create classes and know what an object is
  • Go further and have the understanding to continue into more complex C++ structure

Who is the target audience?

  • Anyone looking to learn C/C++
  • Anyone who want to learn how to program
  • Someone who wants to be able to understand the structure of a C++ program

Section 1: Start With The Basics

There are many C++ compilers out there but in this lecture I show you one I like to use.


In most code related tutorials we always start with the Hello World example. This is my C++ course Hello World


What is a variable and how are they used in C++. In this lecture we look at this


In this lecture we examine a simple bit of C++ code that give variable definition examples


Some notes on good variables and bad variables


There are a few ways of representing strings/words in C++. Here we examine the common used examples


In this lecture we examine a simple bit of C++ code which has string definitions

What do you remember about variables
4 questions
Section 2: C++ Loops and If Statement

In this lecture we examine what is a for loop and why use it in C++ code


In this lecture we show an example of a for loop in some C++ code and how its used

The While Loop

In this lecture we show an example of a while loop and how its used in a C++ code example

The Do-While Loop

In this lecture we show a code example of a Do While loop and its use


What is the if statement and how do you use it


Code example of an if statement


This lecture describes what is the Break keyword and what is the Continue keyword, what they are used for and how we can use them in code


This lecture gives an example code showing how break and continue are used and how they have different usages

Recap on Loops
2 questions
Section 3: Reusable Code Blocks

How can we easily reuse code without having to keep writing it over and over again. In this lecture we examine this issue.

Section 4: Functions

The main function is a requirement in any C++ application. In this lecture we take a look in more details at the main function and how its defined.


Function definitions


In this lecture we discuss our first example of functions where we define them first.


In this lecture we talk about how we declare the functions before we use them


In this lecture we show how you can define the functions in a separate file than the main function


In this lecture we talk about function input values


In this lecture we talk about return values

Function Definition
2 questions
Section 5: Arrays and Pointers

What is an array and how do we use them


Here is some example code of arrays


What is a pointer and how do we use them


Here is some example code using pointers


In this lecture we take a look at an example of enum and how it is used


In this lecture we take a look at the Union data type

Section 6: Example Using What Learnt So Far

This lecture shows how we can write a program to reverse an input string using loops, arrays, pointers and function calls.

Section 7: Classes and Object

What is a C++ class

Example of a Class
Inheritance and Derived Classes Example
More on Constructors

Lets talk some more about Deconsructors in a C++ Class


In this lecture we talk about virtual methods, pure virtual and give examples of using the virtual keyword


In this lecture we talk about what is a struct and how are the used in C++


What is a linked list and how is it used. In this lecture I show an example of a linked list and show you its used in a program

Section 8: Containers

In this lecture we introduce vectors and give some example code in using one

Section 9: Template

In this lecture we take a look at a template function


Template classes are very powerful and quite easy once you know the structure. In this lecture we examine an example template class

Instructor Biography

Sean McCammon, 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.
