Course objectives
The course is focused on object programming in C++ language. The main emphasis is directed to practical usage of programming in chemistry and bioinformatics.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will be able to: use C++ language classes and program their methods; use streams for reading and writing from/to a file; use overloaded functions, methods and operators; use virtual methods of classes; use a object oriented library for development of programs with graphical user interface; develop C++ programs solving problems from chemistry, bioinformatics and other natural sciences.
  • Principles of object oriented programming. Programming language C++.
  • Classes in C++, class members.
  • References, overloaded functions, operators.
  • Inheritance of classes.
  • Formatted input and output.
  • Templates, containers.
  • Dynamic memory allocation, virtual methods.
  • File input and output, reading and writing PDB file.
  • Graphical output using object oriented graphical libraries.
  • Development of interactive graphical programs.
  • 3D graphics application interfaces, OpenGL basics.
  • Name spaces, exception handling.
