Massachusetts Institute of Technology OpenCourseWare – Intro to C++


There is no one who dreams of technology that has not given thought to how an education at MIT could send us to the top of the Computer Scientists charts. Although most of us may not be able to attend MIT, we can still take the classes they offer, and for FREE I might add. MIT OpenCourseWare is a name you should have tattoed across your chest, forearm, or forehead, as it is a name you should not forget.

The MIT OpenCourseWare websites about page states that:
“MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity.”



Bjarne Stroustrup’s: Creator of the C++ Programming Language



For obvious reasons, Bjarne Stroustrup’s home pages are a neccessity for the C++ programmer. Bjarne Stroustrup is the creator and owner of C++, so nothing C++ happens without some connection to Stroustrup. During a job interview for a C++ position, there is a slight chance that one might bring up Bjarne Stroustrup’s work. You might actually have a chance for the position as long as you do not confuse Bjarne Stroustrup with “Cambel’s Soup stuff”.



Microsoft’s Visual C++


Visual C++ is Microsoft’s proprietary version and interpretation of the C++, and for any C++ programmer who ventures into the world of Microsoft and/or asp.net, MSDN is also a necessity. All things Microsoft software development can be learned via MSDN.microsoft.com, so don’t get caught without it!

It’s a widely accepted fact that all things technology pass through the proprietary scope of Microsoft at some point in time. So you make a call from your iPhone via Verizon Wireless? Microsoft Server is in the mix. How about playing an online game on your Mac computer? Microsoft Server, again, in the mix. So you visit www.mountainstate.edu – Microsoft Server AND asp.net – in the mix.



Apple’s iOS Dev Center


So you have came up with an iPhone app that can GPS and photo the exact location of a new species of bug, search for life on Mars, create $100 bills, as well as cures cancer. You know your app is going to make you rich while alotting you the next selection as the Nobel Piece Prize recipient.

My friend, please make sure to bookmark this website, and do take note that iPhone apps CAN and ARE developed in C++.
