About this course

You will learn how to write, compile, and run a C++ program. The course also covers programming concepts such as if statements, loops, and simple functions.

The topics we cover include:

  • Write, compile, and run a C++ program that prints messages to the console
  • Use the standard library to do text I/O in the console
  • Write and call simple functions
  • Use a while loop to repeatedly receive and respond to user input
  • Use if statements to conditionally execute different parts of a program.

By the end of the course, you will have started developing a simplified cryptocurrency trading platform in C++.
