Course objectives
The course builds on top of the basic C++ programming course, PB161. The goal of this course is to familiarise students with some of the more advanced parts of modern C++, focusing mainly on generic programming and metaprogramming facilities, and to further develop their C++ programming skills by solving various practical exercises. Students with an interest in a broader scope of C++ topics might want to enrol in PV294 (both courses can also be studied simultaneously).
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, the students should be able to: design and implement a variety of C++ programs on an intermediate level; understand and use the programming techniques of generic programming and metaprogramming supported by the newest ISO standards of C++; be able to read and maintain existing C++ code using these techniques.
  • Generic programming, templates, concepts. Metaprogramming, compile-time evaluation, useful idioms.
