Prerequisites (in Czech)
PB161 C++ Programming
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is offered to students of any study field.
Course objectives
The goal of this course is to provide a broad overview of the modern C++ language, including some of its more advanced parts. Students looking for a more practical in-depth approach (covering a smaller part of the language) might want to enrol in PV264 (both courses can also be studied simultaneously).
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, the student should be aware of most of the intricacies of the modern C++ programming language and grasp most of the functionality offered by its standard library. They should be able to read and understand well-written modern C++ code and have a solid foundation for further (self)-improvement in C++ programming skills.
  • C++ memory and object model, ownership.
  • Namespaces, scope, lifetime.
  • Move semantics, universal references, perfect forwarding.
  • Generic programming, metaprogramming, templates, concepts, type traits.
  • Useful C++ idioms: SFINAE, CRTP, tag dispatch, type erasure.
  • Memory and resource management, smart pointers.
  • Algorithms, iterators, ranges, views, (niebloids).
  • Virtual inheritance, RTTI.
  • Standard library: chrono, random, regex, …
  • Concurrency in C++, threads, synchronisation.
