This course is designed to give you everything you need to be productive with modern standard C++. Not every aspect of the C++ language is considered (that would be impossible in a few hour course); instead, the course is focused on some important practical-oriented features of the language. The language features discussed in this course will be shown in action with concrete C++ code samples. This course is a mix of slides and C++ demos. Even basic concepts will be explained, using interesting visuals and metaphors. In this course, C++11 from Scratch, you will begin your C++ journey learning how to compile your C++ code. First, you will start from a simple Hello World program. Next, you will learn how to represent data in your C++ programs with types and variables. Then, you will discover how to write code to make decisions and iterating. Finally, you will explore the basics of the STL vector container, and you will learn how to define your own classes. After following this course, you will be able to learn further C++ elements including minor C++14 additions, building on the solid modern C++ knowledge of this course.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Giovanni Dicanio. Welcome to my course, C++11 from Scratch. I am C++ programmer, a Pluralsight author, and a Microsoft MVP. C++ is a very powerful and widely-used programming language successfully applied in so many fields ranging from system programming, computer graphics, video games, physics simulations, and the machine learning just to name a few. This course will teach you important practical concepts of modern C++11. No prior experience with the C, C++, or other programming language is required. Some of the major topics that we will cover include basic practical elements of good, clean, modern C++ representing information with the types and variables, making decisions and iterating it in your code, storing and processing items using the standard vector container, and developing your own classes. By the end of this course, you'll be productive with modern C++11 and be ready to develop applications of your own using the clean, good, modern C++. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into more advanced C++ topics and to learn minor additions introduced in C++14. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn modern C++ with the C++11 from Scratch course, at Pluralsight.
