Course objectives
The course is focused on advanced programming in C and C++ language. At the end of this course, students should be able to: understand principles of object oriented programming; have basic knowledge of C++ language programming; understand basic principles of graphical user interface programming; develop simple programs for visualization of scientific data.
  • Principles of object oriented programming. Programming language C++. Classes in C++. Class members.
  • Inheritance and polymorphism.
  • Dynamic memory allocation. Input and output handling in C++.
  • Exception handling. Name spaces. Templates.
  • Standard C++ library.
  • Graphical user interface libraries. Events processing and message handling. Using windows.
  • Graphics device interface. Keyboard and mouse handling.
  • Menus. Dialog windows. Components of dialog windows.
  • 3D graphics application interfaces. OpenGL basics.
  • Object oriented libraries for numerical calculations, chemical and scientific applications.
  • Development of plugins and modules for chemical programs.
  • Examples of selected chemoinformatic and bioinformatic problem solutions.
