Introduction to C++
Adam Townsend, Mathematics and CM Hub and Krishna Gopalakrishnan, Mechanical Engineering and CM Hub
This class teaches the fundamentals of C++. C++ is an object-oriented programming language that has both high- and low-level features. It is typically used to produce fast code, but at the expense of a steep learning curve. This course is designed for beginners to C++, but expects some programming experience in another language.
You can bring your own laptop; Windows users will need a secure shell client installed (e.g. putty https://www.putty.org ).
