In Object-Oriented Concepts, we will introduce the core concepts behind modern, object-oriented, programming. We will discuss objects, classes, messaging, inheritance, polymorphism, and more. As with Fundamentals of Programming, we will illustrate the concepts using the Python language, but they will be portable to other object-oriented programming languages.

An understanding of C++ helps to solidify knowledge of programming concepts and provides a strong foundation for learning other programming languages. This course takes students' programming skills to the next level by emphasizing practical programming skills while focusing on creating text-based games. The course examines common programming constructs as they are implemented in C++ including C++ 11. Topics include the use of C++ for memory management, file input/output (I/O), pointers, references, exceptions, and object-oriented programming. Basic data structures such as linked lists, stacks, and queues are covered in terms of their usage and implementation using C++. Modules in the course are accompanied by a mini-game project to teach the associated programming concepts as well as to hone problem-solving skills and good coding practices.
