Free Certification Course For C++ Programmers By University of California


C++ For C Programmers Free Certification Course By University of California,SC

uc_santa_cruz_logoThis course is for experienced C programmers who want to program in C++. The examples and exercises require a basic understanding of algorithms and object-oriented software. You will learn this course under the guidance of Ira Pohl who is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and a Fellow of the ACM.

Workload: 5-12 hours/week

Duration Of Course: 8 Weeks ( From 14th Oct Onwards)

Taught In: English

Subtitles Available In: English

About the Course:
The course provides an overview of C++ for the experienced C programmer. You will learn how C++ is more powerful than C. The C++ STL library will be featured. This library allows C++ programmers to code generically, efficiently and at a high level. You will learn how to write basic graph algorithms such as the shortest path algorithm. You’ll then put this skill to use in a programming assignment aimed at producing an intelligent hex player.

Recommended Background:
One year of experience in programming with C or a similar programming language is required. You should have a basic familiarity with implementing standard CS algorithms, especially graph algorithms, such as the shortest path algorithm. Some object-oriented software development is also desirable. These topics are typically taught in a first year computer science curriculum.

Suggested Readings:
Although the lectures are designed to be self-contained, a serious C++ programmer will need access to reference materials. The Wikipedia C++ article is a good place to start. The course is based on the instructor’s text: C++ for C Programmers: 3rd Edition.

Course Format:
The course consists of lecture videos ranging from 5 and 18 minutes in length. Each of these videos includes one or two integrated quiz questions. There will be programming assignments and a final exam.

For this course, all you need is an Internet connection, and access to a C++ compiler. The class will expect that code can run on the free gnu compiler g++.   

What is the coolest thing I’ll learn if I take this class?

You will learn how to code generically. You will produce a high quality game playing program for the non-trivial game Hex.

Note: The Certificates Will Be very useful if you go for any interview. Also you can add in your resume in Extra Curricular activities.
