C++ Refresher

Who should attend:

Software developers who want to refresh their C++ knowledge.


Basic C++ knowledge.


2 - 3 days depending on the selected modules.

Course Description:

This course allows C++ programmers to check their existing C++ knowledge for correctness and completeness, to recover lost C++ know-how and to acquire possibly missing knowledge.This leads to a solid understanding of the programming language C++ which, due to the memory and runtime considerations, allows especially embedded software devlopers to create powerful and reliable applications. The course is designed in a modular way and thus can be customised according to the requirements. The contents of the course are based on C++98 which currently is the most widespread language standard in use. The features of the newer language standards C++11, C++14 and C++17 are covered in the course "Modern C++" which requires the knowledge imparted in this course as a pre-requisite.
