  design and develop C++ applications - syllabus for 5 day course


- be able to write well-decoupled Object Oriented (OO) C++ code
- know how to design C++ software that it is easy to maintain and extend
- follow a clear development method geared towards OO language development
- create C++ objects that are flexible enough to belong in reusable libraries

Most C++ courses teach you the features and syntax of the language. This one tells you how to design and develop realistic OO applications in C++.  You learn all the good techniques of OO programming; as well as how to implement these objects in C++.  The course is extremely practical, developed and taught by consultants with many years' experience in OO design. When taught at your site, this modular course can be adapted to your situation and requirements. Included in the course are numerous examples and exercises, and comes with a reference text.  After the course, we are able to offer reviews and mentoring to guide you to make best use of the methods.

The course is suitable for anyone.  For onsite training of development teams with experience of OO design and development in another language, such as Java, the course can be slimmed down.  The course is presented by one of our senior consultants, each of whom has at least ten years' experience in object oriented software development, and at least three years' experience as a trainer and consultant in a diverse range of application areas. Ideally this training should be followed up some weeks later, by the course: advanced C++.
