PB071 Principles of low-level prog.
Students are also required to have user experience with Unix OS or similar, as homework is submitted and tested on a Unix server.
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
there are 65 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
Course objectives
The goals of the course are to make the students familiar with the C++ programming language (as defined by ISO C++14) and the object-oriented programming principles (as implemented by C++). The course focuses mainly on using the standard library, efficient design of own data structures (classes), the principles of resource management, and the basic principles of object-oriented design.
Learning outcomes
After finishing this course, a student should be able to:
- write C++ programs utilizing the tools of modern C++ (as defined by ISO C++14);
- use a significant part of the standard C++ library;
- create user-defined data types (classes) in C++;
- understand the value semantics of C++ and explain the difference between this semantics and other popular languages' semantics;
- understand the principles of object-oriented programming;
- design simple object-oriented architectures and implement them;
- use exceptions in an efficient and reasonable way;
- use modern development tools (IDE, debugger, version control, build automation tools, testing frameworks...);
- follow best practices guidelines for C++ programming.
