Why Learn C++?

40 years ago, a Ph.D. student by the name of Bjarne Stroustrup tinkered around with the C programming language, which was and still is a language well-respected for its flexibility and low-level functionality. Little did he know, he created a new language that can now be found in:

  • Operating systems
  • Web browsers
  • Microcontrollers
  • AAA video games
  • And everywhere else!

Take-Away Skills

This course will start with the fundamental programming concepts before digging deeper into the more advanced C++ topics. You will build everything from retro games such as Snake! to a Pokédex with Arduino!
