C++ For Non C Programmers

This course is designed to provide non-C programmers with the essential skills and knowledge necessary to allow them to become competent in developing basic ANSI compliant C++ console programs. The course is good for systems and applications programmers who will be developing systems in C++. It is suitable for hardware and software engineers who want to expand their knowledge in a powerful all-purpose language and technical managers who want to manage C++ programming projects.
