This course is designed for students with no prior programming experience.
While C++ may not be seen as a natural choice for a beginner course in programming due to its intricacies, this is still a good introductory programming language. The intricacies actually present a great opportunity to uncover the fundamentals of programming that are so vital to a well grounded programmer.
This course is also a doorway to a deeper study of programming in C++, which is still the industry standard for systems software development. It will stand you in good stead to bore down into the details of the language, and some of the most interesting problems in programming that it is used to solve.

Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:
C the Bigger Picture
Start understanding the C++ language, what it gives us and how to use it. We'll be getting a good understanding of how to reign in the immense flexibility and power C++ gives us through a variety of statements and structures, and how to handle when it goes wrong.
Data for Thought
We'll begin to see how we can make our programs do what we want, through basic decision making - given a little bit of data and logic - alongside some branching and repetition to make it all run even smoother. We can even throw in a self-made game just for fun and good practice.

This is a legendary programming language, loved and respected throughout the programming community. The ++ is actually a play on a programming operator to increment a value by one. And this is what C++ is, an evolution of the legendary programming language C. It is safe to say that if you can master this programming language, then nothing stands in your way from building the most robust and complex systems in software engineering.
This is a systems programming language. It is used to build operating systems and other programs that have to interact intimately with the hardware on a device. So mastering this language puts you squarely on the nuts and bolts of the technology all around us. And as said before, you will earn enormous respect from programmer peers for mastering this language.
- Motivation and dedication to learn, and apply your mind to more complex tasks in programming.
- Proficiency in both written and spoken English
- Basic computer skills, such as sending emails, file navigation, saving files and opening files.
- Note that this MicroDegree is suitable for beginner-level programmers, since it covers introductory content for each concept.
Equipment and Technologies
-Access to a computer and a broadband internet connection*
-A machine that meets the technical requirements to run CodeBlocks. Please see: http://www.codeblocks.org/downloads/26
-An email address where course content and other important course information can be delivered.
*The use of Dropbox means you’re not required to be always online while taking this MicroDegree. Even if you don’t have internet - perhaps due to some loadshedding - you can still access your Dropbox folder and continue to edit/update files. As soon as you have internet again, your Dropbox will sync with your trainer and he or she will see your changes. Dropbox and our own website is also available on everything from Blackberry to Apple tablets - so you will be able to learn while on the move.
