ACENET: C++ as a Second Language

Thu, Mar 18, 2021 @ 12:00pm - 4:00pm

Status: Completed

This workshop will be a hands-on introduction to the C++ programming language building off the previous workshop's introduction to C.

Prerequisites: "C as a Second Language" or prior experience with C programming

A great deal of high-performance computing software is written in C++, but few universities offer courses in the language any more. If you have to work with "legacy code" written in C++, adding features, porting to a new machine, or patching errors, or if you need to extend packages like OpenFOAM which are written in C++, then this workshop is for you.

C++ was designed as an extension of the C language but has its own distinct idiom or style. This workshop assumes that you already know C to the level reached in the ACENET workshop, "C as a Second Language".

This session will take place on:

Thursday, March 18th - 12:00pm - 4:00pm (Atlantic time)

You do need to have a laptop with a Mac, Linux or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc) on which you have administrative privileges, as you will need to pre-load specific software packages. 

Participants must register using their institutional / organizational email address (not a personal email, ie. gmail)

Instructions for how to join will be sent out one day prior to the start of the event.
