Note: This course is a subset of our much longer course 'Learn By Example: C++ With 75 Solved Examples' so please don't sign up for both:-)
Like a gruff uncle, C++ seems intimidating, when its just being helpful. These examples will help you understand that.
Let's parse that.
Talk to us!
Templates are an awesome way to reuse code in C++. They are the basis of the Standard Template Library, and are a form of compile-time polymorphism.
What happens when we wish to override the default template instantiation for some specific type? Its easy!
Iterators sound boring ("classes to do stuff, element-by-element with contents of a container") but that bland description belies their power and utility.
We already explored the vector, which is a sequential STL container - now, let's do some stuff with the map, an associative container.
C++ casts are surprisingly versatile. Understand the 4 types of casts, and how they each differ from old-school C-style casts (which you should entirely stop using, btw)
Loonycorn is us, Janani Ravi, Vitthal Srinivasan, Swetha Kolalapudi and Navdeep Singh. Between the four of us, we have studied at Stanford, IIM Ahmedabad, the IITs and have spent years (decades, actually) working in tech, in the Bay Area, New York, Singapore and Bangalore.
Janani: 7 years at Google (New York, Singapore); Studied at Stanford; also worked at Flipkart and Microsoft
Vitthal: Also Google (Singapore) and studied at Stanford; Flipkart, Credit Suisse and INSEAD too
Swetha: Early Flipkart employee, IIM Ahmedabad and IIT Madras alum
Navdeep: longtime Flipkart employee too, and IIT Guwahati alum
We think we might have hit upon a neat way of teaching complicated tech courses in a funny, practical, engaging way, which is why we are so excited to be here on Udemy!
We hope you will try our offerings, and think you'll like them :-)
