C++ as a Second Language

A great deal of high-performance computing software is written in C++, but few universities offer courses in the language any more. If you have to work with “legacy code” written in C++, adding features, porting to a new machine, or patching errors, or if you want to extend packages like OpenFOAM which are written in C++, then this workshop is for you.

C++ was designed as an extension of the C language but has its own distinct idiom or style. This workshop assumes that you already know C to the level reached in the prerequisite ACENET workshop, “C as a Second Language”.
