The main goal of the Terascale C++ 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
- 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. Prerequisites will be defined in due time and should be taken seriously!
A clearer impression about what is to be expected from the school can be found by looking at a previous event.
The registration fee is 30 EUR and has to be paid cash at the on-site registration.
The school will start on Monday at 14.00h and will finish on Friday before lunch. .
