Introduction to Structures, Classes, and C++ Standard Library is a free online course that provides a comprehensive guide to the role of structures, C++ classes, and the standard library in simplifying programs in C++ programming. This course will teach you about the role of constructors, controlling access to member functions, and the memory processes for defining variables. The course begins with a discussion on the difficulties of working with large programs, passing structures to functions, and defining a pointer to a structure.
Next, you will study member functions, vectors in physics, and how to use a structure to represent 3D vectors. You will also learn about writing the main program to implement the queue using member functions. Then, you will discuss the software components for building large software systems, the modern version of a struct, and constructors. You will also analyze the concept of operator overloading and declaring function members as private or public. Furthermore, the course will analyze classes for graphics and input-output and disabling certain operations. You will also take a look at representing variable-length entities, pitfalls of heap memory, and automated memory management. Finally, you will learn about implementing classes, the C++ standard library, and iterators for maps and unordered maps.
This free online course from Alison provides an in-depth learning experience for some advanced aspects of C++ with an effective guide to understanding how structures, classes, and the C++ standard library work in C++ programming. This course will be of significant interest to students, aspiring programmers, and anyone with an interest in gaining credible and advanced knowledge and skillset in C++ programming.
