A first introductory course on C++ based on the book Accelerated C++
This course is for older students and beginners who want to get started writing programs in C++.
Taught by Jeremy Siek, a professor at the University of Colorado. No prior knowledge of C++ is assumed.
The course is based on the excellent textbook Accelerated C++ by Andrew Koenig and Barbara E. Moo.
Like the textbook, the course quickly dives into problem solving and making use of the C++ standard library, including strings, vectors, and lists. The emphasis is on teaching you the parts of C++ that you will most likely need in your day-to-day programming.
This course is Part 1 of a planned two-part sequence. Part 1 covers the first seven chapters of Accelerated C++, in particular, Chapters 0 through 6. The course consists of six videos of 50-60 minutes each.
The emphasis is on teaching you the parts of C++ that you will most likely need in your day-to-day programming.
