Jumping into C++

Want to learn to code? Want to learn C++? Struggling to follow your lecturer or books and tutorials written for experts? You’re not alone. As a professional C++ developer and former Harvard teaching fellow, I know what you need to know to be a great C++ programmer, and I know how to teach it, one step at a time. I know where people struggle, and why, and how to make it clear. I cover every step of the programming process, including:

  • Getting the tools you need to program and how to use them
  • Basic language feature like variables, loops and functions
  • How to go from an idea to code
  • A clear, understandable explanation of pointers
  • Strings, file IO, arrays, references
