About the Course

In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to implement the basics of C++ and OOP program design, discover pointers and memory management in C++, and find optimal situations for using C++ in the real world. By the end of the project, you will create an application that can process basic calculator functions from the user, and stores the previous results. With this project we will create a basic first application in C++, and highlight the differences between C++ and other popular programming languages. C++ has been around since the mid 80s, yet despite its age, it is still an essential part of application development today. C++ is the third most popular language for development, and its balance of low level access and high level concepts ensures that it still holds an essential role, especially in large-scale enterprise development. Students looking to re-skill for another job will find this course gives them a great introduction to C++, and more advanced students looking to refresh their memory will also be at home. Join the course, and get a powerful crash course into C++. This course works on the Rhyme platform, which allows you to have a custom Windows VM that ensures you don't have to worry about any of the setup work that normally causes beginners trouble with C++ or any new language. Students will be able to code along on their desktop and learn by coding with the instructor. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

It is not clear who this is aimed at - expert developers are not gonna be doing a "Make your First C++ application" project, yet the material provides inadequate understanding for a beginner. I genuinely think the instructor is competent and the concept of the course (a gentle introduction to modern C++ programming in a practical way) is commendable, but there is no direction whatsoever. The only way you will be able to follow everything shown and _grasp why it is being done the way it is_ is if you already know C++ objects or have sufficient knowledge of memory managing in object oriented programming languages. The "Beginner" tag is misleading.
