Course Overview

This course is structured to provide a thorough exploration of OOP principles in C++, starting from the basics of classes and objects to more advanced topics like constructors, destructors, and encapsulation. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of how to use these concepts to write modular, maintainable, and efficient code in C++.

What You Will Learn

  • Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming in C++:
    Understand the key principles of OOP and how they can be effectively implemented in C++ to create robust, reusable software.
  • Classes and Objects Basics:
    Learn about classes and objects, the core elements of OOP. Discover how to define classes, create objects, and understand their interaction.
  • Constructor:
    • Default Constructor:
      Learn how default constructors are used to initialize objects without requiring any input parameters.
    • Parameterized Constructor:
      Understand how parameterized constructors can be used to initialize objects with specific values during object creation.
    • Copy Constructor:
      Explore the copy constructor, which is used to create a new object as a copy of an existing one.
  • Destructor:
    Learn about destructors and their importance in resource management, particularly in the context of memory management and object cleanup.

Hands-On Code Examples

The course includes practical examples that will help you understand and apply OOP concepts in real-world programming:

  • Encapsulation via Get and Set Methods:
    Implement get and set methods to encapsulate data, ensuring controlled access to class attributes.
  • C++ Code Example: Area of a Rectangle:
    Create a class that calculates the area of a rectangle, demonstrating how to define attributes and methods.
  • C++ Code Example: Volume of a Cube:
    Implement a class that computes the volume of a cube, highlighting the use of constructors and encapsulation.
  • C++ Code Example: Data Abstraction – Public, Private, Protected:
    Learn about data abstraction by defining public, private, and protected members and methods.
  • C++ Code Example: Create Items with Counter:
    Implement a class that tracks the number of instances created using static attributes.

Who Should Enroll

  • Beginner Programmers:
    Those new to C++ programming who want to learn the fundamentals of object-oriented programming.
  • Intermediate C++ Developers:
    Programmers who want to enhance their understanding of OOP and write more efficient, modular C++ code.
