This subject introduces C++ as an object-oriented programming language, building on existing knowledge of C and Java. The subject covers the C++ language with a focus on its object-oriented features, and how these can be implemented as part of program designs and implementation. You will also study and gain practical experience with the implementation issues related to object-oriented techniques, be able to build good quality software using object-oriented techniques and understand the role of patterns in object-oriented design.
