C++ is one of the most popular programming languages and can be used for a variety of things, including mobile applications, game development, and enterprise software. Knowing C++ opens a lot of doors for you as a Programmer.
C++ is a general-purpose programming language created by Danish computer scientist Bjarne Stroustrup as an extension of the C programming language, or “C with Classes”. The language has expanded significantly over time, and modern C++ now has object-oriented, generic, and functional features in addition to facilities for low-level memory manipulation. It is almost always implemented as a compiled language, and many vendors provide C++ compilers, including the Free Software Foundation, LLVM, Microsoft, Intel, Embarcadero, Oracle, and IBM, so it is available on many platforms.
C++ was designed with systems programming and embedded, resource-constrained software and large systems in mind, with performance, efficiency, and flexibility of use as its design highlights. C++ has also been found useful in many other contexts, with key strengths being software infrastructure and resource-constrained applications, including desktop applications, video games, servers (e.g. e-commerce, web search, or databases), and performance-critical applications (e.g. telephone switches or space probes).
C++ is standardized by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), with the latest standard version ratified and published by ISO in December 2020 as ISO/IEC 14882:2020 (informally known as C++20). The C++ programming language was initially standardized in 1998 as ISO/IEC 14882:1998, which was then amended by the C++03, C++11, C++14, and C++17 standards. The current C++20 standard supersedes these with new features and an enlarged standard library. Before the initial standardization in 1998, C++ was developed by Stroustrup at Bell Labs in 1979 as an extension of the C language; he wanted an efficient and flexible language similar to C that also provided high-level features for program organization. Since 2012, C++ has been on a three-year release schedule with C++23 as the next planned standard.
In 1979, Bjarne Stroustrup, a Danish computer scientist, began work on “C with Classes”, the predecessor to C++. The motivation for creating a new language originated from Stroustrup’s experience in programming for his Ph.D. thesis. Stroustrup found that Simula had features that were very helpful for large software development, but the language was too slow for practical use, while BCPL was fast but too low-level to be suitable for large software development. When Stroustrup started working in AT&T Bell Labs, he had the problem of analyzing the UNIX kernel with respect to distributed computing. Remembering his PhD experience, Stroustrup set out to enhance the C language with Simula-like features. C was chosen because it was general-purpose, fast, portable and widely used. As well as C and Simula’s influences, other languages also influenced this new language, including ALGOL 68, Ada, CLU and ML.
Welcome to the Certified Professional in C++ Programming – Practice Test the only course you need to test your skill of coding with C++.
The course includes 2 Practice Test builds your programming knowledge while making real-world C++ projects.
In this course, you’ll be exposed to fundamental programming concepts using C++ and to help you practice and test your knowledge using quizzes.
Here’s a detailed look at what you’ll get:
- if statements
- Classes and Objects
- and much much more!
What will you need to succeed in this Exam?
- Basic C knowledge is required!
- C++ basic knowledge is required though – you don’t need to be an expert but the basics need to be set (though there are refresher sections in this course!)
What does this course offer you?
- This course consists of 2 practice tests.
- The practice test consists of 20 questions, timed at 30 minutes
- The questions are multiple-choice.
- Every question is associated with a knowledge area.
- The answers are randomized every time you take a test.
- Once the test was taken, you will get an instant result report with categories of strength to weakness.
- You can retake the tests over and over again as and when it suits you.
I’d be very happy to welcome you to the course!
Who this course is for:
- Newbies or students looking for a refresher on the basics of C++
- Everyone who wants to learn C++
