Advanced C++ programming

I just had a 3 day course about Advanced C++ programming.

It was pretty cool, and I enjoyed every second of it.

 

I already knew most of the C++ language itself, but I've never taken any course about the different ways of programming, and which way suits best each solution. This was exactly what I wanted to learn, and I feel much more professional now :)

 

The course talked about the following things, and we had to write also real C++ code for most of the ways we just learned and compile and run it. It was organized pretty smart, as many topics built upon a previous topic, and the code we wrote earlier. That was fun also:

 

Design Patterns:

Creational Patterns:

  • Abstract Factory
  • Builder
  • Factory Method
  • Prototype
  • Singleton

Structural Patterns:

  • Adapter
  • Bridge
  • Composite
  • Decorator
  • Facade
  • Flyweight
  • Proxy

Behavioral Patterns:

  • Chain of Responsibility
  • Command
  • Interpreter
  • Iterator
  • Mediator
  • Memento
  • Observer
  • State
  • Strategy
  • Template Method
  • Visitor

Antipatterns:

  • usual problems in class design
  • solutions to problems

Each of those topics exposed a different way of programming in C++, and it was pretty amazing what kind of features are hidden in C++, of which most people probably never thought of before.

 

I had no idea how powerful and easy C++ really is, when you use it the real C++ way. Basically it was like, you should use classes for everything, and never do big if() constructs and other hardcoded and procedural logic.

 

Doing things right in C++ gives also a huge speed boost in execution and programming time, and makes code really reusable, as they explained why each const, virtual, static, volatile, mutable, stack, heap, algorithm, etc... is useful.

Like polling for events :lol:

It was at some finnish training center ( www.tieturi.fi ), but if you follow the wiki link above, you could also learn those things yourself.
