The Ultimate C++ Beginner Course

An Introduction to Programming & Problem Solving

This is the first programming course offered in university. I remember spending that one winter break reading a C++ book and being excited when I wrote my first ever program. I have thoroughly read the book and solved many practice problems, which is why I ended up getting an A without attending the lectures. If you want to learn programming, or anything for that matter, find the best resources and invest your time and money into it.

What’s next?

You can expect a more advanced programming course, which focuses on object oriented programming (OOP). This programming style or model is widely used in the software world in fields such as game development, web development, mobile app development, and much more.
