C/C++

NOVUS is designed for everyone even if you have never programmed before or if you have extensive experience programming in other languages and want to expand into C/C++. It is for everyone who wants the feeling of accomplishment from a working program.We provide students with an easy step by step guide to programming in C/C++.

C Language:

The course is split up into several sections. C is a general-purpose high level language that was originally developed by Dennis Ritchie for the Unix operating system. The Unix operating system and virtually all Unix applications are written in the C language. C has now become a widely used professional language for various reasons.

Why to use C ?

‘C’ was initially used for system development work, in particular the programs that make-up the operating system. C was a system development language because it produces code that runs nearly as fast as code written in assembly language. Some examples of the use of C might be:

  • Operating Systems
  • Language Compilers
  • Assemblers
  • Text Editors
  • Print Spoolers
  • Network Drivers
  • Modern Programs
  • Data Bases
  • Language Interpreters
  • Utilities

C++ Language:

C++ is a general purpose programming language that supports various computer programming models such as object-oriented programming and generic programming. It was created by Bjarne Stroustrup and, “Its main purpose was to make writing good programs easier and more pleasant for the individual programmer.”

A C++ program is a collection of commands, which tell the computer to do “something”. This collection of commands is usually called C++ source codesource code or just code. Commands are either “functions” or “keywords”. Keywords are a basic building block of the language, while functions are, in fact, usually written in terms of simpler functions.Every program in C++ has one function, always named main, that is always called when your program first executes.
