Basic course in imperative programming, preferably using C++

Intended learning outcomes

The student will work to gain knowledge and skills in object oriented programming using C++. After a completed

course, the student should be able to:

• identify and use common idioms used in object oriented C++ programming

• create independant, non-trivial classes in C++

• create polymorphic class hierarchies in C++

• create programs to separately test a class implementation

Course content

• Abstraction using encapsulation

• Repetition of pointers and memory handling in C++

• Object orientated programming

• Classes: Concepts, Inheritance, Polymorphism

• Introduction to UML (class diagrams)

• Repetition of file separation

• The tool make

Teaching and working methods

New content is presented during lectures and discussed in smaller lesson groups. The student then practices during
