We are pleased to announce the C++ for C Programmers Training being held on September 13th, 2019 from 9am to 5pm CT.

C++ can be considered as a superset of C, but this view often leads to un-idiomatic C++ programming. In this short course we both show the new mechanisms of C++, and we explain what C mechanisms, while available, should no longer be used.

The first half of this course covers mostly object-oriented programming and parameter passing with references; the second half covers advanced topics such as smart pointers, exceptions, iterators, lambdas, templates. It will be pointed which features are specific to the C++14 and C++17 standards.

This training will be available to both in-person and remote attendees via webcast. Local participants are strongly encouraged to attend in-person.
