Introduction to Programming & C++ Coding Basics for Non-Developers

Companies are constantly challenged to keep their applications, development projects, products, services (and programmers!) up to speed with the latest industry tools, skills, technologies and practices to stay ahead in the ever-shifting markets that make up today’s fiercely competitive business landscape.  The need for application, web and mobile developers and coders is seemingly endless as technologies regularly change and grow to meet the modern needs of demanding industries and clients.   

There are hundreds of roles that reply on coding knowledge and programming skills.  Having programming skills can enable you to: 

  • Develop applications and contribute to application development projects and teams 
  • Integrate, change. expand or maintain outsourced development work being brought back in house 
  • Use or maintain software, tools, systems or networks that require coding skills to operate, handle data or complete other tasks 
  • Collaborate and communication more effectively with developers 
  • More effectively manage development teams or projects that involve programming 

To meet the need to bring this knowledge and skill in house, companies might 

  • Locate, engage and hire experienced developers  
  • Outsource development work to third party firms 
  • Onboard new hires or recent college graduates / cohorts with limited practical experience, then train them specifically to fill these roles 
  • Invest in and ‘re-skilling’ current employees into more modern and productive roles within the firm, retaining and leveraging existing company knowledge and talent. 

Learning to code, even to a basic level, is a truly worthwhile investment. Having coding skills, or even basic knowledge, can elevate your ability gain a new job in programming, help you gain longer term job security in your current organization, or can even expand your current role into other areas in your team or organization.  

Introduction to Programming & Coding | C++ Basics for Non-Developers is a skills-focused, hands-on coding course that teaches students the fundamentals of programming object oriented (OO) applications with C++ to a very basic level.  This course is presented in a way that enables interested students from any background to embrace the fundamentals of coding as well as an introduction to C++, in a gentle paced environment that focuses on coding basics, moving at the comfort level of the attendees.   

Students are introduced to the application development cycle, structure of programs, and specific language syntax. The course introduces important algorithmic constructs, string and character manipulation, dynamic memory allocation, standard I/O, and fundamental object-oriented programming concepts. The course explains the use of inheritance and polymorphism early on so the students can practice extensively in the hands-on labs. Structured programming techniques and error handling are emphasized. The course includes the processing of command line arguments and environment variables, so students will be able to write flexible, user-friendly programs.  Students will leave this course armed with the required skills to begin their journey as a programmer using modern coding skills and technologies.   

Trivera offers hundreds of end-to-end skills-focused courses that provide participants with the job-ready skills they require to be truly productive in a modern IT business enterprise. Our courses are available for individuals, their teams, or across their organization, for students of all skill levels and roles.  We offer an extensive online Public Course Schedule, deep catalog for Private Courses, flex-hour Mini-Camp short courses, self-paced QuickSkills courses, free webinars and more.  Trivera’s unique EveryCourse Extras and AfterCourse Extras programs, included with every course, ensure our students can put their newly-learned skills right to work, while providing them with a solid platform for continued skills-development, support and long-term growth.   For more information about our dedicated training services, public course offerings, collaborative coaching services, new hire or enterprise upskilling programs, or to see our complete list of course offerings and special offers please call us toll free at 844-475-4559.
