Although C++ is among the top five programming languages, you won't find many highly recommended opportunities to learn it online. It is seen as a difficult language, a reputation which it probably deserves, but as the promotional video for the C++ Nanodegree outlines, it is at the heart of many complex, high performance, systems:
In the video Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of the language explains that C++ is used for the "foundational parts" of just about anything we do, saying:
"It sticks in between the higher-level software and the hardware and that's a much bigger part of the world that most people think. It's basically everywhere."
As David Silver, head of Udacity's School of Autonomous Systems, puts it C++ is the common thread between self-driving cars, drones and robotics and Udacity co-founder. If you are still not convinced of its worth, self-driving car pioneer, Sebastian Thrun adds:
“Self-driving cars would not be possible without C++. “I programmed the self-driving car that won the DARPA Grand Challenge using C++. The Google Self-Driving Car Project, now called Waymo, was launched with C++.”
The prerequisites for the program are intermediate knowledge of object-oriented programming in any language. The program comprises four courses and a Capstone Project:
Each of the four courses culminate in a C++ project:
The Pay As You Go cost for this 4-month program would be $15,396 so paying upfront with a 70% discount is a big saving. The program opens on December 7th and to claim the discount enrol and use the code HAPPYHOLIDAYS22 at checkout.
If you are not ready to tackle C++ then Udacity's beginner level Introduction To Programming Nanodegree, a 4-month program, also restarts tomorrow and is included in the deal. Or if you want to go further with Python how about the Intermediate Python Nanodegree, which is just 2 months in length?
