The main goal of the school is to help participants learn the techniques of object oriented programming in C++. The school addresses all physicists from the student to the senior level who feel that they would profit from lectures and hands-on exercises on the following topics: - going from C to C++, function overloading, default parameters, operators - class basics, namespaces, constructors, destructors - C++ style input/output operations (basics) - dynamic memory management, pointers - using templates and the Standard Template Library (STL basics) - STL data structures and generic algorithms - advanced classes: function classes, inheritance, abstract base classes - C++ style input/output operations (advanced, class hierarchy, iterators) - external libraries: the Boost library - exceptions (maybe, depends on how we can progress with other topics) - handling multiple source files, using make, GIT Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of C or C++ (what is a class? what is a namespace?). The focus is on programming - the physics examples used are very simple.
