In this article I’m going to introduce a series of articles that will present a different way to teach beginning Python programming. My approach is to teach the language as a means of implementing a set of programming templates that describe specific functions that a program can perform rather than the syntax of a particular construct. Learning Python by Implementing Programming Templates
In this article I’m going to continue the discussion by looking at some advanced concepts — classes as first-class objects, computed member names, and static member variables.
In this article I’m going to show you how to overload the input operator (>>) and the output operator (<<) so that you can use them with your class objects.
A class constructor is a function that places data into a class object and performs any other set up for a class object that needs to be performed when a class object is first instantiated. In this article, I’ll demonstrate how to create and use several different types of class constructors. I’m going to demonstrate how to create and use constructors using a class definition I developed in my previous article, which was an introduction to C++ classes.
Reasons to learn programming. 1-Occupational fields are evolving In the information age, programming became a necessity as occupational fields are changing rapidly. While traditional jobs like retail are becoming extinct; demands towards programmers are ever-growing.
One of the most difficult concepts for beginning C++ programmers to understand is the difference between passing function parameters by value and passing function parameters by reference.
Variable scope refers to the ability of a variable to be “seen” in a program. A variable is seen if, in a specific place in a program, the programmer has access to that variable’s value.
The typical way to perform selection (or branching) in C++ is with the if statement. In this article I’m going to demonstrate several ways to replace complex if statements with tables.
Boolean operators are used to combine relational expressions to perform more complex logic in your C++ programs. In this article I’ll explain how to use the Boolean operators in C++.
Most of us have fallen into this trap. We’re so focused on learning a topic or honing a skill that we don’t touch previously learned information for weeks or months.
There are two loop constructs in C++. One of them is the while loop and I’ll cover it in a separate article. The other loop construct, and the one I want to discuss in this article, is the for loop. The for loop is used when you want to iterate, or loop over, a set of statements, a specific number of times. If you are processing the elements of a container, such as an array or a vector, you will want to use a for loop. If you are processing 10 pieces of data received from the program user, you will want to use a for loop.
