Programming 2: Basics

Individual course

Content:

  1. Dividing program code into manageable parts and other style issues. Modularity and use of classes. Basics of object-oriented programming.
  2. Recursion.
  3. STL (Standard Template Library). Basic containers (vector, set, map). Iterators.
  4. Values, references, and pointers. Dynamic memory management. Basics of dynamic data structures. Linked list. Smart pointers.
  5. Basics of graphical user interfaces. Most common widgets. Basics of signal-slot mechanism.
  6. Version control (in single programmer’s projects). Compiling compared to interpreting.

A student attaining grade “good” can design and implement smallish programs independently: the student is able to divide the program to parts that can be implemented separately in a practicable way plus design simple data structures and algorithms. The student can evaluate the structure of a program written by another person.

Please check with the teacher before taking the course exam if the electronic exam is linked to a specific class.
