Welcome to C++:
Welcome to the introduction to C++. Let’s begin!
The C++ programming language is a direct descendent of the C programming language. However it includes extra capabilities such as type checking, object oriented programming, exception management, and so on. It refer to as a “better C”. Bjarne Stroustrup was the man behind its creation. C++ is a general purpose language language. Hence it means that it is designed to be used for developing applications in a wide variety of domains.
A C++ program is a set of commands that instruct the computer to perform “something”. This collection of commands refer to as C++ source code, source code, or simply code. Commands are classified as “functions” or “keywords”. Keywords are a fundamental building block of the language. Therefore, functions are typically written in terms of simpler functions—as demonstrated in our very first programme, below. (Confused? Consider it similar to a book outline; the outline may indicate every chapter in the book; each chapter may have its own outline, made of sections) Hence C++ provides a large number of common functions and keywords that you may utilise.
This course will start by teaching basic programming ideas before moving on to more advanced C++ topics. After this course you will be able to make animations like in Tangled and as well as programs that can censor text.
Features of C++:
In C++, you can dynamically allocate memory during runtime using new and delete operator in C++ to have better memory management. C++ supports object oriented programming features, which means we can use the popular OOPs concepts such as Abstraction, Inheritance, Encapsulation and Inheritance in C++ programs, these features make writing code in C++ a lot easier. We will cover them in detail in this tutorial series. We have functions in C++, which makes easier to break a problem into small blocks of code and structure the program in such a way so that it improves readability and reusability. Just like Java we can do exception handling in C++ which makes it easier to identify and handle the exceptions.
Here are some useful tools to help you along your journey!
Setting up an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) can be difficult for beginners. The Online Compiler will enable you to run your code inside your browser without the need to install an IDE. If you need a more detailed explanation of a specific topic, the best place to find answers is in the Official Documentation.
