COMP 2617 - C++ Application Development 1

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

C++ is one of the most popular programming languages used in industry today to create professional application software and video games. C++ continually evolves and is designed to work along side other programming languages. This hands-on intermediate level course assumes a prior knowledge of object-oriented programming and follows on from COMP 1451. Students must already understand object-oriented programming (OOP) before starting this course. Participants start their examination of C++ by comparing previously learned OOP characteristics and mapping these to C++. This course will cover C++11 features as they apply to the learning outcomes. Topics include: Classes, Control Statements, Arrays, Pointers, Stream I/O and the C++ string class. Since the C language is a subset of C++, students will be also earning some first level C programming which is continued in COMP 2717. Delivery is face-to face for 3 hours each week plus an online and homework component. Typical students will require about 10 hours per week to study the material and work on assignments outside of class. Upon successful completion, participants will be able to continue to learn C++ programming with the second half of this material in COMP 2618.

Prerequisite(s)

COMP 1451 with 60% or better, or equivalent understanding of object-oriented programming.
