C++ is a general-purpose, object-oriented programming language that was designed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979 to be an extension of the C language. It has the features of imperative, object-oriented as well as generic programming models. C++ also has some additional facilities to those in C such as classes, inheritance, default function argument, etc. C++ plays quite an integral role in modern times as many contemporary systems such as operating systems, web browsers, databases, etc. have C++ code in at least some part of their codebase. Moreover, C++ is quite useful in performance-critical areas because of its speed.
C++ Popularity and High Salary
C++ is one of the most popular languages in the world. It is used by some 4.4 million developers worldwide. Also, C++ Developers are quite sought and they hold some of the most high-paying jobs in the industry with an average base pay of $103, 035 per year.
C++ has Abundant Library Support
C++ has the Standard Template Library(STL) which is very useful as it helps in writing code compactly and quickly as required. It contains mainly four components i.e. algorithms, containers, functions, and iterators. The algorithms are of different types such as sorting, searching, etc. The containers store classes to implement different data structures that are commonly used such as stacks, queues, hash tables, vectors, sets, lists, maps, etc. The functors allow the working of the associated function to be customized with the help of the parameters passed. Also, the iterators are used for working upon a sequence of values.
C++ STL – Self-Paced is full of C++ concepts like how to use functions, loops, arrays, structure, etc, and also advanced concepts like algorithms.
This course covers Basics as well as Advance level topics in C++, as this course is MEGA course so it starts from scratch explaining C++ language and then moves to Advance topics like Object Oriented Programming in C++.
1. Basics of C++ (Loops, Conditionals, Arrays 1D and 2D, Functions)
2. Object Oriented Programming in C++ (Class and Object, Inheritance, Polymorphism, Abstraction & Encapsulation)
3. Advance topics like Pointers and dynamic memory allocation.
