  • C++ Programming: From Problem Analysis to Program Design

Please note: You will receive a digital book if the physical book is on backorder.

Many of today's popular desktop, web, and mobile apps were developed with the C++ programming language. With software development roles expected to grow at 22 percent from 2012-2022, learning C++ is an important first step to a career in computer science.

This course is designed to introduce you to the concepts, terminology, application, and coding of the C++ programming language. This course consists of 18 lessons that use text, full programming scenarios, instructional videos, and hundreds of live coding labs that give you real-time feedback on your work. You will learn fundamental programming concepts, including decision making and looping, with the support of practical, step-by-step examples.

After working through these lessons, you will understand the basics of structured and object-oriented programming techniques. Most importantly, you will be able to build C++ programs to strengthen your developer portfolio.
