Since its inception about three and a half decades ago, the C++ language has constantly reinvented itself and kept pace with changing times. This constant reinvention has kept C++ relevant for many use cases today. Explore the history of C++ and the difference between classic C++ and modern C++. Discover the compilation process of C++ and the role of the pre-processor, the compiler, and the linker. Look at the variety of compilers available for C++ and the C++ standard library. Finally, learn how to install C++ and write, compile, and run simple C++ programs. You will work with the MSYS2 collection of utilities and familiarize yourself with the VSCode integrated development environment (IDE). By the end of this course, you will have a solid foundation of the basics of C++ and a good sense of why C++ language features evolved the way they did.
