You'll be able to develop powerful C++ programs
You'll be able to apply for C++ jobs, with at least a possibility of success
You'll understand the basics of computer programming, including Object Orientation

This course teaches you the powerful, fast and popular C++ programming language from scratch, assuming only basic computer knowledge. If you want to develop apps that squeeze the most power from your computer — high-end desktop games or complex artificial intelligence programs, for instance — or if you want to use a language that let’s you get close to your machine and access all of your computer’s hardware, C++ is the language for you. While C++ is quite challenging, in this course we’ll learn the basics step by step; towards the end of the course you’ll learn how to create a beautiful “particle fire” program, including a smattering of the basic principles of game development.

Getting Started

1
Introducing C++

What is C++ and why should you learn it?

2

Basic Syntax

1
Variables
2
Strings - Working with Text

Strings let you store bits of text that you can use later in your program.

3
User Input

Our programs aren't very interesting until they are interactive. So in this tutorial we'll look at getting input from the user.

4
Binary Numbers and Computer Memory

In C++, it helps a lot to know a bit about how the computer's memory is structured. So we'll take a look at binary numbers, bits and bytes in this tutorial

5
Integer Types

C++ provides you with various kinds of variable types for working with numbers. In this tutorial we'll take a look at integer types.
