LearnCPlusPlus :: Class Methods, Templates, Const Refs; Multi Dim Arrays, Pipes

developers learning together

Hello Again,

Last week we started Object-Oriented Programming which is another milestone in the “Introduction to C++” posts of our LearnCPlusPlus.org website, and we will dive into Classes & Objects in the next few weeks so keep following along. One of the most powerful features of C++ is Object-Oriented Programming (OOP), which makes it different from the C programming language by using Classes, Objects, and more. Object-Oriented Programming has many advantages over procedural programming and it is the most characteristic feature of the C++ programming language.

Methods in classes are very important and how we can use methods in classes? We also use Function Templates, do you know how to use function templates? Generally, we need to use constant references in functions, in methods. How we can use constant references wisely? This week’s picks have answers to those questions. We have also added 4 CPP Con videos for professional developers.

This week’s topics

This week’s topics include classes and some basics, and all more can be found in the “Introduction to C++” section
