Introduction to Programming in C++ (edX)
Learn the fundamentals of programming in the C++ programming language, including iteration, decision branching, data types and expression. This is the 1st course in the intermediate, undergraduate-level offering that makes up the larger Programming and Data Structures MicroBachelors program.

We recommend taking them in order, unless you have a background in these areas already and feel comfortable skipping ahead.

- Introduction to Programming in C++

- Advanced Programming in C++

- Introduction to Data Structures

- Advanced Data Structures

These topics build upon the learnings that are taught in the introductory-level Computer Science Fundamentals MicroBachelors program, offered by the same instructor.



This is a self-paced course that provides an introduction to the C++ programming language. Among the topics covered is the development of command-line programs that utilize different data types, expressions, decision branching, and iteration to solve problems. Students learn to program in C++ through the lectures and the labs. C++ programming material is presented over eight weeks of interactive lectures with weekly quizzes to assess your understanding of the material Students will experience hands-on practice writing C++ programs through ten lab challenges.

Students will experience the development cycle by compiling their C++ programs from human-readable source code to machine-readable object code. They will then link their objects to create an executable that can be run interactively.

This course is part of the Programming & Data Structures MicroBachelors® Program.


What you'll learn

- analyze C++ assignments and apply its components in program development

- apply basic C++ I/O operations with different data types

- design C++ expressions using arithmetic operations (including understanding their limitations, such as integer truncation, round-off error, division by zero, narrowing and widening conversions, casting, precedence, and standard math library functions)

- design C++ expressions using relational operators (including understanding floating point equality)

- design C++ expressions using logical operators (including short-circuit)

- design C++ selection statements (including nested selection)

- design C++ repetition statements (including count-controlled versus event-controlled, sentinel-controlled)
