Control Structures in C: Getting Started with Control Structures
A control structure in C is any code construct that changes the flow of control, such as the order of execution in a program. The three main types of control structures in C are decision-making control structures, looping control structures, and unconditional control structures. Decision-making control structures include if-else blocks and switch statements. You will start this course by working with the if statement control structure. This checks whether a condition is satisfied or not, and returns an output based on that. You will then use the if-else-if ladder to create multiple conditions that will be checked in order. The code block associated with the first condition that is satisfied will be executed, and subsequent conditions will not even be checked. Finally, you will learn about the ternary operator, which makes use of the ? and : symbols to create an if-else block and store the result in a variable. Upon completion of this course, you'll be able to work with control structures to change the flow of execution of a C program, use if and else conditions, and employ the ternary operator in assignments and expressions

Control Structures in C: Looping & Unconditional Control Structures
The three main types of looping control structures in C are for loops, while loops, and do-while loops. This course provides demos for how to work with looping and unconditional control structures in C. You will begin by creating a for loop which iterates over a block of code for as long as a certain condition is true. You will then experiment with the loop condition, the value of the loop variable, and the update expression for the loop variable, before moving on to iterating over arrays using for loops. You will also create nested for loops. Next, you will use while loops to execute some code while a condition is satisfied. You will explore the loop variable and iterate over arrays, then move on to do-while loops. Finally, you will learn about the unconditional control structures such as break, continue, goto, and return keywords. These are typically used with other control structures. After completing this course, you'll be able to implement while loops, for loops, do-while loops, break statements, and continue operators.

OOP in C++: Instantiating Objects Using Constructors
A constructor is a special method of a class invoked when an object of that class is created. Constructors have a fair bit of complexity, and can be chained to achieve code reuse and marked as explicit to avoid unexpected type promotions and object creation. In this course, examine the important aspects of constructor syntax, such as specifying default arguments and correctly using initialization lists. Next, learn how to chain constructors and retain most of the code functionality in one constructor. Finally, learn how constructors might be invoked automatically by the C++ runtime to create objects for method invocations. After completion of the course, you'll be able to correctly initialize variables using initialization lists, connect constructors using constructor chaining, and create structs.

C++ Inheritance & Polymorphism: Using Inheritance for is-a Relationships
Inheritance is a powerful, object-oriented language construct in which one class can be related to another class using an is-a relationship. Using inheritance, you can construct complicated class hierarchies in which one class is a parent or a base of another class. Is-a relationships are a great way of performing object-oriented design and are complemented by has-a relationships, which are implemented using composition, rather than inheritance. Explore inheritance relationships by setting up an inheritance hierarchy in C++ and specifying one class as the parent of another class. Then discover how member variables and methods are accessible from the drive class, as well as from external code. Finally, investigate base class access specifiers, and find out how they work with member access specifiers. When you're finished, you'll clearly understand how to use inheritance for is-a relationships and how to identify uses for private inheritance.

C++ Inheritance & Polymorphism: Constructors, Destructors, & Inheritance
The order in which constructors and destructors are invoked on an object of a derived class in an inheritance hierarchy is a very important topic. Constructors are invoked in order from the top-most (most base-level) class, down to the most derived class. Destructors are invoked in the reverse order. Explore how constructors work in an inheritance hierarchy, the order in which the base and derived class constructors are invoked, and how initialization lists need to be used in the derived class. Discover how to use copy constructors and destructors in the context of inheritance. Learn how to set up an inheritance hierarchy for polymorphism. Finally, practice using objects in an inheritance hierarchy with variables of pointer and reference types. When you finish this course, you will have a solid foundation in constructors, destructors, and inheritance, setting the stage for runtime polymorphism and dynamic method dispatch.

C++ Inheritance & Polymorphism: Understanding & Using Polymorphism
Inheritance forms the basis for polymorphism, specifically runtime polymorphism, which is a powerful object-oriented programming construct. Runtime polymorphism involves a pointer or a reference of the base class type holding an object of the derived class. The beauty of runtime polymorphism is that when virtual methods are invoked on this pointer, the derived class versions are executed. You will start this course by defining name hiding and how most methods on C++ objects are, by default, statically dispatched. You will then learn about polymorphism and dynamic dispatch, which is accomplished using the virtual keyword. Finally, you will learn how the ‘override' and 'final' specifications can be used to achieve precise semantics and reduce the scope of bugs and typos in your C++ programs.

C++ Inheritance & Polymorphism: Pure Virtual Functions & Abstract Classes
Pure virtual functions and interfaces are very powerful tools in object-oriented programming, and interface-driven programming is a great way of splitting up work across different developers on a large project. You will start this course by considering why your destructors should be marked as virtual in the base class if you have an inheritance hierarchy. You'll see the harmful effects of not using virtual destructors in an inheritance hierarchy and the problems with object slicing. You will also learn why it is preferable to have variables of reference types to the base class rather than the value types. You will then move to some finer points of working with virtual methods, such as, the inadvisability of using default parameters because these are statically bound. Finally, you will master the syntax and semantics of pure virtual functions and learn how a class that contains even one pure virtual function becomes an abstract class that cannot be instantiated directly.

C++ Inheritance & Polymorphism: Multiple Inheritance & the Diamond Hierarchy
C++ allows multiple inheritance, which means that one class can have more than one base. C++ also has some powerful mechanisms for dealing with edge cases such as the diamond hierarchy. You will start this course by learning the precise syntax which is required to implement multiple inheritance in C++, specifically, how it's important to have both base class access specifiers marked independently. You will then move on to the topic of a diamond inheritance hierarchy, in which the grandchild-level derived class has two parents, both of which inherit from the common, grandparent level base class. Finally, you will see how dynamic casts work in the context of an inheritance hierarchy, how these are a lot safer than static casts, and how they return a null value on failure when used with pointers but they throw an exception on failure when used with references.

Exception Handling in C++
Exceptions are the most popular form of error handling and the try-catch block is superior to all other error handling mechanisms because it forces the invoking function to manage the errors. In this course, learn how exceptions are thrown and caught. Next, practice creating and using custom exception objects and discover why exceptions must be caught by reference. Finally, explore object slicing results, the semantics and limitations of the noexcept keyword, and the pitfalls of exceptions that occur within constructors. Upon completion, you'll be able to correctly throw and handle exceptions using try/catch blocks, enumerate semantics and limitations of the noexcept keyword, and mitigate problems related to exceptions thrown during the construction of an object.

Pointers and References in C++: Getting Started with Pointers
As a superset of C, C++ also has support for pointer variable types that point to specific memory locations. While the pointer types function similarly, the terms related to pointer variables have evolved from C to C++ and modern C++, as you will see in this course. Begin this course by creating pointers to values and arrays. You will then move to the use of the nullptr keyword, and see how it differs from the NULL value used in C. Finally, you will create pointers to vectors and maps. After completion of this course, you'll have a solid foundation of using pointers to stack memory locations in C++ and create pointers to vectors and maps.

Pointers and References in C++: Allocating Memory with New & Delete Operators
C++, like C, has powerful support for memory allocation and deallocation. In the world of C, these operations are performed using malloc() and free(), which are not to be used in the C++ world. In classic C++, memory allocation and deallocation are performed using the new and delete operators. You will begin this course by understanding the new and delete keywords, and note how these lead to the invocation of the underlying constructors and destructors on whatever objects are being worked with. In contrast, the C versions, that is, malloc() and free(), do not invoke constructors or destructors. You will then move on to the use of array new and array delete, which is how the new and delete followed by square brackets are referred to. Finally, you will look at the differences between const pointers and pointers to consts.

Pointers and References in C++: Using Smart Pointers in Modern C++
Dynamic memory allocation and deallocation in C are performed using malloc() and free(). In classic C++, dynamic memory allocation and deallocation are performed using new and delete, and array new and array delete. In modern C++, it's smart pointers that take over. Begin this course by examining the idea behind smart pointers. You will then explore the different types of smart pointers, including unique pointers, shared pointers, and weak pointers. Discover why weak pointers are required in some cases to avoid circular references that can cause memory leaks. After completing this course, you'll be able to use smart pointer objects, leverage RAII to use shared, unique, and weak pointers, and avoid circular references using weak pointers.

Pointers and References in C++: Working with References
C++ supports a variable type known as the reference. You can think of references as being easier-to-use, lighter-weight versions of pointers. Begin by getting familiar with the syntax and semantics of references in C++, including the use of the & symbol to denote a reference type. Note some important differences between references and pointers, how references need to be assigned when they are created, how they cannot be reassigned or set to NULL, and how multiple references to the same underlying value are all effectively aliases for that value. Move on to declaring and using variables of reference type. Finally, learn about const references and experiment with different configurations of loops, where the loop variables are references, value types, and const references. Upon course completion, you'll be able to define and initialize variables of reference types, contrast pointers and references, and correctly use const references.

C++: Getting Started with Operator Overloading
Operator overloading is an unusual language feature that is quite important in C++, enabling you to specify implementations of the standard operators for your user-defined types. You can overload a wide variety of operators, each having a standard meaning for built-in types that can be mimicked in custom types. If used correctly, this can lead to natural, elegant-looking code. Begin this course by learning how to overload simple operators and explore the restrictions around overloading operators. Then, discover how to overload operators as member functions of a class, providing easy access to the internal state of the object. Finally, focus on identifying situations where the member function implementation will not work and investigate best practices of operator overloading.

C++: Overloading Arithmetic & Relational Operators
Some of the most commonly overloaded operators include binary arithmetic operators, used in operations such as a + b; compound assignment operat+B30ors of the form a+= b; and the prefix and postfix operators of the form a++. In this course, discover how to overload binary arithmetic operators appropriately, so that they support correct semantics in chaining. Learn how to overload compound assignment operators, such as +=. Explore how the C++ compiler differentiates between the pre and post increment operators and how these operators work in various edge cases. When you complete this course, you will be able to confidently leverage std_rel_ops by overloading relational operators.

C++: Stream Operators, Assignment Operators, & Copy-and-Swap
The stream insertion and extraction operators are often overloaded because they provide a convenient way to read objects in and write objects out to standard IO. The copy assignment operator is even more crucial because of how important it is in correctly freeing up resources held by an object. In this course, learn how to implement the correct overloads of the insertion and extraction operators and why these are invariably implemented as non-member functions. Then, move on to correctly overloading the copy assignment operator and using standard formats to ensure that resource cleanup occurs exactly once. Finally, find out how the copy-and-swap idiom provides a way to use the std::swap function to implement the copy assignment operator in a manner that is exception-safe. This idiom leads to an elegant implementation that is not only less complex, but also more robust.

C++: Using Function Templates
Template metaprogramming is a powerful computer science technique used to achieve code reuse and some incredibly elegant architectures. In C++, template metaprogramming is achieved via template functions and classes that are instantiated at compile-time, not at runtime. In this course, learn how to define and instantiate function templates to effectively provide compile-time polymorphism. Then, explore how template definitions can make assumptions about the template parameters. Finally, learn how to define and use templates with pointer and reference types to provide function overloading.
14 videos | 1h 47m has Assessment available Badge
C++: Function Templates with Multiple Parameters & Non-type Parameters
Template programming is very powerful and can also get quite complicated. In this course you will tackle some of those complications by using multi-value function templates. Learn how decl_type and auto keywords can be used to allow type inference on the return type of a function. Work with default arguments for template parameters and see how this can lead to mismatches if done carelessly. Finally, define and specify non-type template parameters and explore the relationship between the values of those parameters and the compiler.

C++: Using Class Templates
Class templates are a way of reusing code for classes parameterized by types of internal state variables, just as function templates are a way of reusing code for functions parameterized by the types of input arguments and return types. In this course you will discover how to define and instantiate class templates, along with common uses of templated classes. Learn how to use the braced initialization list constructor and explore how the compiler provides this special construct so that container objects can be initialized from a list of values. Finally, investigate partial and full template specializations, and how partial specializations can be used to correctly deal with pointer types.

C++: Using the Move Constructor & Move Assignment Operator
References are an important part of C++, and a little-known fact about references is that there are actually two types of references: l-value and r-value. In this course, explore those two reference types by learning how to use the syntax and semantics of r-value references to extend the lifespan of transient values. Then, implement the move assignment operator and move constructor, using r-value references as their input arguments, to reduce the number of unnecessary copies created in your C++ programs. Finally, work with Resource Acquisition Is Initialization (RAII) to use smart pointers as a way to bypass complex rules, such as the rule of three and the rule of five, allowing you to follow the simplest rule of all - the rule of 0.

C++: Working with Sequence Containers
In C++, containers are structures that store collections of other objects known as elements. Sequence containers are used to store elements of the same type sequentially in a linear arrangement, and associative containers store elements in the form of key-value pairs. In this course, work with basic sequence containers called arrays, as well as vectors. Next, learn about forward lists and lists, which are sequence data structures that allow constant time insert and erase operations. Finally, discover how to work with deques (double-ended queues) and container adapters, including stacks, queues, and priority queues. Upon completion, you'll be able to contrast sequence and associative containers, enumerate properties, and correctly use stacks, queues, and priority queues.
12 videos | 1h 26m has Assessment available Badge
C++: Working with Associative Containers & Algorithms
Associative containers provide fast lookup in O(log n) time by associating each entry with a key. Sets and maps are both associative containers. Algorithms are classes that support container-agnostic operations performed on containers. In this course, learn how to create sets and iterate over them, as well as use ordered and unordered multisets. Next, practice creating maps and indexing into them using keys, as well as inserting key-value pairs into maps. Finally, examine how random access of elements is faster with unordered maps compared to ordered maps, and explore various STL algorithms. Upon completion, you'll be able to differentiate between sequence and associative containers, leverage STL algorithms, and instantiate and use sets, multisets, maps, and multimaps.

First-class Functions in C++: Defining & Using First-class Functions
While C++ is considered an object-oriented language, it provides support for functional programming, including support for first-class functions in three manners: function pointers, function objects, and lambdas. In this course, discover the complexity of C-style function pointers by creating them and invoking functions through them. Next, learn about the various features and uses of function pointers and how to accept functions as input arguments and return functions from a higher-order function. Finally, examine function objects (functors) and use them to overload the call operator, instantiate objects, and use the overloaded call operator. Upon completion, you'll be able to list the properties of C++ first-class functions, create function pointers, return functions from a higher-order function, and define and invoke a functor.

First-class Functions in C++: Using Lambdas & Closures
In C++, a lambda expression is an ad-hoc, locally scoped function object that offers a function definition syntax. Lambdas can be stored in variables and invoked like function objects or function pointers, but lambdas go further by supporting context capture. In this course, learn how to define and invoke lambda functions and pass and return input arguments to and from lambdas using the Standard Template Library (STL) algorithms. Next, explore how context capture works in lambdas and implement closures. Finally, work with context capture to specify captured variables and whether the capture is by copy or by reference. Upon completion, you'll be able to define and invoke a lambda function, perform context capture by value and by reference, and define closures inside class methods.

Functions and Memory in C: Getting Started with Functions
In C, as in other programming languages, the term function refers to a named and parameterized block of code that can be invoked repeatedly. Functions allow monolithic programs to be split into modular chunks, greatly facilitating code reuse and simplifying and improving the logical structure of programs. Explore C functions and learn how they are defined, declared, and invoked. Next, move on to built-in functions and discover how to convert strings to integers, floats, or longs. Then, you will create your own functions to accept input arguments from and return output to the invoker of the function. Finally, you will study the difference between the declaration and the definition of a function. After completing this course, you'll be able to define and invoke functions, understand implicit and explicit function declarations, and use both library functions and user-defined functions.

Functions and Memory in C: Getting Started with Pointers
One of the main reasons C retains its relevance after 50 years is the level of interaction between the programmer and the memory which C allows for. While more modern languages such as Python manage the memory under-the-hood, C allows the user to control all aspects of memory management. At the heart of C's memory management capabilities lie pointers. Begin this course focusing on memory allocation layout and the concepts of stack and heap memory. Then, explore pointers to learn how to view the memory location referenced by the pointer and how to dereference a pointer to view the data at the referenced address or modify data stored at the memory location being pointed to. Finally, use the NULL keyword as both a value and a pointer to the non-existent memory address of 0. Upon completion of this course, you'll be able to use referencing and dereferencing operators in C and properly test for and use NULL values.

Functions and Memory in C: Leveraging Pointers with Arrays & Functions
Pointers are some of the most important building-blocks of C and are used with a variety of data types. In particular, pointers have a special relationship with arrays, because an array is effectively a pointer to a contiguous block of memory used to hold elements of a specific type. In this course, you will create both arrays and pointers to those arrays. Next, take a deeper dive into the nuances of arrays and pointers and discover how to use pointer arithmetic as a method of viewing array elements. Finally, explore passing pointers and arrays into functions. After completing this course, you'll be able to leverage the equivalence between pointers and arrays, use pointer arithmetic, and return pointers from functions.

Functions and Memory in C: Allocating Memory on the Heap
C programmers can commonly use two kinds of memory: stack and heap. While stack memory is used to store local variables and is fully managed by C, it does have major limitations that are mitigated by heap memory. In this course, you will compare stack and heap memory, exploring the advantages and limitations of each. Then, you will allocate memory using the malloc() function and deallocate memory using free(). Next, you will examine dangling memory issues that can cause potentially dangerous security issues. You will also explore other common allocation functions like calloc() to zero out memory and realloc() to help when you underestimate how much memory an array will require. Finally, you will focus on pointers to struct objects. After completing this course, you'll be able to allocate memory malloc, calloc, and realloc; free memory; use pointers to structs; and avoid problems related to dangling pointers and memory leaks.

Advanced Topics in C: Getting Started with File Handling
File handling is an integral part of many medium-to-large-scale programs in C. Files are the most convenient way of managing data for the wide range of programs of this size. You will start this course by considering the advantages of using files in C and the most important functions for file handling, which are fopen() and fclose(). Explore the modes that fopen() can be used with and read and write data to text files. Begin by reading in individual characters with the fgetc() function, whole strings from a file using fgets(), and structured data with the fscanf() function. Discover how to use the r+, a+, and w+ modes, before turning to writing structured data using the fprintf() function. Next, learn how to read and write binary data by leveraging the fread and fwrite functions and the wb and rb modes. Finally, you will perform file seek operations using the functions fseek, ftell, and rewind to control the position your program is operating on in the file stream.

Advanced Topics in C: Managing Code Compilations Using Preprocessor Directives
One of the key attractions of C is the low-level control it gives us over its compilation process. Indeed, the C language allows us to control the compilation of a program to a level unmatched by other languages such as Java. You will start this course by learning the compilation process of C which includes four main steps: preprocessing, compiling, assembling, and linking. Once you grasp the output of each step in the compilation process, move on to investigating preprocessor directives. Next, use conditional preprocessor directives including #if, #elseif and #endif. Finally, discover how to issue instructions to the compiler using pragmas, upgrade a warning to a regular error, and convert a warning to an extremely severe fatal error. After completing this course, you'll be able to list the steps for compiling a C program including creating macros with preprocessor directives, control conditional compilation, and use pragmas to alter compiler settings.

Advanced Topics in C: Using Strings, Header Files, & Type Conversions
Strings are the most fundamental way of representing text in any programming language. In C, they take the form of character arrays, delimited with a special character. Because of the equivalence between arrays and pointers in C, strings can also be represented using character pointers. Start this course by creating strings as arrays of characters, observing that the end of a string is delimited using the \0 character. Discover how strings are stored in character pointers and iterate over strings with pointer arithmetic and use the strlen(), strcpy(), strcmp() and strcasecmp() functions. Next, learn how to create header files and use the #include preprocessor directive to pull in both system and user-created header files. Explore type conversions and learn about implicit conversions. Finally, explore command line arguments including the use of argc and argv, and how these can be used in your C programs. Upon completion, you'll be able to to work with C strings using character arrays, library functions, and header files, perform type conversions, and use command line arguments in C programs.
