Progress directly from our introductory course, expanding your programming knowledge to more advanced concepts.
Use your new knowledge to build portfolio-ready projects inspired by classic games.
No copying-and-pasting code in this course.
We explain every line of code we're using, so you understand exactly what is happening.
Everything we create is organised and implemented using modern, professional practices.
This means the techniques we learn are usable in large, professional projects.
We don't just explain what we're doing, but also why.
This builds transferrable skills, so you can take what you've learnt and apply them to your own projects.
This course is intended for those who already have a basic familiarity with object oriented programming in C++. It is designed as a follow up for our introductory course:
