Standard C++ Programming  Course

C++ is one of the most powerful languages for serious systems that need real speed, high performance and high reliability. This course will teach you the fundamentals of the C++ language, in line with the newest ISO standards. You will learn how to write C++ code that can be used on different platforms. You learn to read, debug and maintain C++ code, and how object-oriented concepts apply to the C++ language.

"This course was extremely enlightening and made me realise what a powerful language C++ is. It was an absolute pleasure to have Renier as our lecturer. I can highly recommend this course to anyone interested in C++."

J. Prinsloo, Nanoteq   (Lecturer: Renier)

"Renier is all what I was looking for, someone with lots of practical experience and can explain the concepts very clearly."

R. Fhatuwani, Thales   (Lecturer: Renier)

"I am really impressed by the standards of which the course was presented and by the knowledge transferred. I haven't had this experience at any other place before."

J. Cilliers, Momentum   (Lecturer: Renier)

"Ideal learning environment and best in class teaching for subjects. Offline and online material very helpful."
