Object-oriented programming Part 1

Course ID




$384 AUD including GST for 16 hours.


Most, if not all general and basic object-oriented programming concepts are discussed. While the programs are C++, NO C++ specific features are discussed like friend functions, operator overloading, cpp11 features, specific algorithms or any production quality code is/are discussed, but the emphasis is on very generic object-oriented concepts which are applicable to any object-oriented language like C# or Java. Like Part 1, Part 2 and part 3 this is also Programming language and computer platform agnostic. Part 1 and Part 2 is a must-have for this course, while part 3 is highly recommended. While the default flavor of this course is in C/C++, this is also conducted in Python 3.0, Java, C# and JavaScript.


Must have Computer programming fundamentals part 1. Computer programming fundamentals part 2. Highly Recommended. Computer programming fundamentals part 3 - Programming Logic. You will not be eligible to independently participate in this course unless you have attended the “must have” courses. Students should bring a laptop preferably with a windows 7 or later OS. We will be using “Visual Studio Code” with “Mingw compiler” for all practicals ( windows port of gcc ).

Students should bring a laptop preferably with a windows 7 or later OS. We will be using Visual Studio code with Mingw compiler ( windows port of gcc ). Mac and Linux also acceptable while Windows is highly recommended to maintain the uniformity. Mac and Linux users please follow this before coming for the training.
