Introduction to C++ Programming Outline

Week 1

Your first step toward writing your first program is to install VisualStudio. So in this lesson, you'll learn how to install Visual Studio on your computer, and then do a walkthrough of creating your first program. You’ll also find out what each line of C++ code means, discuss how C++ code is translated to machine language that the computer understands, and learn how to see and fix errors in your code.

Week 2

Find out about data types, which correspond to the different types of information a program uses, and you'll write a program that can determine the amount of computer memory used by different data types. Then, learn how to create variables of different data types to store information.

Week 3

Learn how to harness the computer's calculating power with the C++ arithmetic operators. Then, learn how to use the different C++ comparison operators and control structures so different blocks of code execute depending on the user's choice.

Week 4

In this lesson, you'll explore how to use nested control structures and the different C++ logical operators when more than one choice determines which block of code executes. Then, learn how to use loops to make code repeat until a condition is met.

Week 5

In this lesson, you'll find out how to use arrays to store multiple items of information. Then, you'll discover how to use C strings to store non-numeric information in an array.

Week 6

Learn how to use functions to divide tasks and organize your code. And finally, you'll learn how to use file input/output to store and retrieve information.

When can I get started?

A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!

How does it work?

Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.

How long do I have to complete each lesson?

Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.

What if I need an extension?

The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
