It was a great experience, because the course introduce the concepts in a way that is very easy to understand and the hands-on are great to get a feelings of what the language is. Is a great course to start off or maybe remember how the syntax worked.

No fluff, this was better than the few coding classes I've taken in college. It breaks every minor concept down to its simplest form, which avoids confusion. The interface is fantastic.

Frequently asked questions about C++

    • C++ was created as an extension of the C programming language, expanding its functionality and adding object-oriented support. Today, it’s one of the most widely used programming languages, known for its power, performance, and control over memory and hardware components.

    • C++’s memory efficiency and control over hardware components help build fast, efficient, and reliable software. Its popularity and longevity have allowed it to branch into countless fields, and you’ll currently find it in operating systems, video games, IoT devices, web applications, machine learning systems, augmented and virtual reality, scientific computers, search engines, and more.

    • Learning C++ can put you on the path to a career as a Software Developer, Quality Assurance Analyst, Back-End Developer, Programming Architect, and more.

    • There aren’t any prerequisites to learning C++, but it helps to have a solid understanding of programming fundamentals (which you can learn in our Code Foundations skill path).

      C++’s syntax may be harder to grasp if you don’t have any coding experience. Higher-level languages (which have a more readable syntax) like Python or JavaScript can be easier for beginners to pick up on and offer knowledge of functions and concepts transferrable to C++.
