 C++ for Non C Programmers

  Course Code - GN-123   Duration - 5 Days

This C++ course is designed for people with no prior knowledge of the C language. While it covers those aspects of C++, which are common to C, it concentrates on a modern, object-orientated approach to the language rather than covering C and then extending it to C++. Microsoft's tools are used on the course, however no specific development environment or target system is assumed.




Knowledge of another language would be an advantage, although not essential.
