C/C++ Boot Camp

Saturday, August 29, 2015 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Instructor: Christian DeLozier, PhD student in Computer and Information Science, University of Pennsylvania
Dates: August 29, 2015
Description: C/C++ are powerful programming languages that give programmers deep control of their computations. However, C/C++ are notoriously hard languages to learn and "easy to shoot yourself in the foot" with. In this class, we will introduce the basics of C and C++: the compilation model, memory safety, low-level object-oriented programming, and the standard library. While you will obviously not be able to master C/C++ in the short span of this course, you will become aware of and gain experience in dealing with the issues that a C/C++ developer faces while writing performance-demanding programs.
