About This Course
C++ for Programmers is designed for students who are familiar with a programming language and wish to learn C++. Past students have described this course as learning C++ without the 'fat'. In other words, this course focuses on 'how' as opposed to 'what'. For example, in the lesson on functions, we do not teach what is a function, we teach how to create a function in C++.
