Doulos Principal Member Technical Staff

Asia and Europe

Time: 10-11am (GMT) 11am-12pm (CET) 3.30-4.30pm (IST)


Time: 10-11am (PST) 11-12pm (MST) 12-1pm (CST) 1-2pm (EST)

Webinar Overview:

Today the majority of embedded systems are developed using the C programming language, but being a procedural programming language it lacks many of the benefits of an object oriented language such as C++.

This webinar will explore some of the key features of C++ and show where they provide useful advantages over traditional C approaches while producing code with comparable size and performance. We will take a look at how you can start using these features (with practical examples using IAR Embedded Workbench), as well some common pitfalls and misunderstandings you may encounter when transitioning to C++.

Content Summary:

  • Encapsulation by classes and namespaces
  • Automatic initialization with class constructors
  • Function overloading
  • Improved reuse with class inheritance and virtual functions
  • Safe flexibility with class templates
  • Stronger checking by compiler
  • Useful Standard library classes
  • Using C++ with existing C code

The IAR Embedded Workbench development environment will be used as a demonstration toolset.
