Create apps in C++ and leverage its latest features using modern programming techniques.
Develop strong C++ skills to build a variety of applications
Explore features of C++17, such as containers, algorithms, and threads
Grasp the standard support for threading and concurrency and use them in basic daily tasks
C++ is one of the most widely used programming languages. It is fast, flexible, and used to solve many programming problems.
This Learning Path gives you an in-depth and hands-on experience of working with C++, using the latest recipes and understanding most recent developments. You will explore C++ programming constructs by learning about language structures, functions, and classes, which will help you identify the execution flow through code. You will also understand the importance of the C++ standard library as well as memory allocation for writing better and faster programs.
Modern C++: Efficient and Scalable Application Development deals with the challenges faced with advanced C++ programming. You will work through advanced topics such as multithreading, networking, concurrency, lambda expressions, and many more recipes.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will have all the skills to become a master C++ programmer.
