From Imperial College Robotics Society
Jump to: navigation, search

This course is an introduction to the C++ language, in collaboration with the Imperial College Software Society. It will be run in a lecture theatre, using projected slides by the course leader. Participants will be asked to bring their own laptops if possible, but other laptops may be booked in advance if available. This course is especially aimed at those who want to kick off their programming learning and make it ready for applications in their course, in ICRS projects and other. This course has been run for several years and has always been very successful. The EuroBot project will require C++ programming.
