By the end of this project, you will be able to create a simple calculator as well as an advanced one, which will be achieved by learning the basic concepts of C++ such as variables, DataTypes, if conditions, and more programming concepts. By applying these concepts you can also create programs that users can interact with. These programming concepts can also be applied using other Programming Languages such as Java and Python, not just C++. 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.
