2. Objectives and learning outcomes
2.1 Objectives
The aim of the course is to show the students the basics of C and C++ programming languages. This is a practice based course, where the students study the main ideas of the programming by writing codes. They will be familiar with the development tools which can help them to build whole projects. During the semester we use only free development kits.
2.2 Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject, the student:
A. Knowledge
  1. has basic knowledge about the C and C++ tools and how to create and use a console based application,
  2. has basic knowledge about the algorithms,
  3. has an overview the most important C/C++ literature.
B. Skills
  1. can create algorithms and develop a basic software,
  2. can manage the development tools (code writing, debugging),
  3. can use the console for IO operations,
  4. can understand the 3rd party source codes.
C. Attitudes
  1. tries to write simple and readable codes,
  2. tries to create errorless and understandable softwares.
D. Autonomy and Responsibility
  1. can solve the tasks independently.
2.3 Methods
The student study the basic programming tools by writing sample codes. During the practice they develop a software independently. They will know the complex data structures and can solve difficult tasks.
