This video gives an introduction of your instructor. It also gives an overview of the course content and the target audience.
In this video, you 'll learn how to install Visual Studio 2017 and also how to create a C++ project. I also explain a few differences between VS2015 & VS 2017 in the project creation dialogs. Note that the installation for Visual Studio 2019 is same as Visual Studio 2017.
[UPDATE] A new version of Code::Blocks was recently released. The MingW compiler bundled now supports all C++11/14 features, however, some C++17 features may be missing. If you don't care about C++17 now, just download the entire package with compiler. Otherwise, follow the instructions in the video & install the compiler separately.
In this video,I'll explain how to install Code::Blocks and configure it with a separate build of MingW on Windows.
In this video, I'll explain how to install Cevelop. Cevelop is an enhanced version of Eclipse CDT and focuses on modern C++ development.
I'll also demonstrate how to create a project in Cevelop and how to add new classes to existing project.
Note: To run Cevelop, you'll have to install Java runtime & a GNU-based C++ compiler. You can download Java from www.java.com and MinGW from mingw.org.
Introduces Modern C++ and where it is used. It explains why C++ is chosen over other languages.
Learn about different types of initialization in C++ including the new Uniform Initialization syntax and its advantages
This lecture starts with the basics of l-values and r-values and then explains C++11 feature, R-value references.
This video walks through the code that is generated for virtual functions in Visual Studio. It also explains why base class destructors should be virtual.
- Basic programming knowledge in any computer language
- Some experience of writing programs in any language
- Modern C++ compiler, preferably Visual Studio 2015/17/19 Community (or XCode, Clang, g++, Cevelop, Eclipse CDT, Code::Blocks)
Learn C++ in depth with modern features introduced with C++11/14/17
Updated with C++17 features!
C++ is a general purpose programming language invented by Bjarne Stroustrup. It is still one of the more popular programming languages, used for creating high performance applications across a wide variety of domains & platforms.
In 2011, C++11 was born. This revision added lot of new features to the language and it got a new name, Modern C++. This emphasizes writing C++ code using modern features of the language such as move semantics, automatic type inference, threading, lambda expressions, smart pointers and a lot more. C++11 was followed by C++14, that added even more features and enhanced existing onces. In 2017, we may see a new release called C++17, that will add a filesystem library (covered in the course), parallel versions of STL algorithms, new library types such as std::optional, std::any and more.
This course teaches C++ as an object oriented language with modern features. It focuses on teaching C++ concepts, both old and new, with clear examples. It builds upon the basic language facilities that are then used to build more complex programs with classes, operator overloading, composition, inheritance, polymorphism, templates, concurrency, etc. It even digs deep into assembly to understand few concepts better. After every few topics, a quiz is presented that tests your understanding of the previous topics. Have fun learning Modern C++.
