What I would highlight The first nature of materials may not be awful, but rather they appear as though they were seriously reused/reused from some other Microsoft instruction thing. In what manner can the main video in lession 1 begin with "Lession 3: History of C++"? Open reaction assesment homeworks? The due dates are likewise uncertain, it would appear that a self-managed course in type of a planned session. The adjustment to edX is quite recently awful, the most noticeably bad edX encounter in this way.

What could be improved No negative aspects.

What could be improved Everything OK.

What I would highlight The substance is useful for apprentices and it will help the understudy to comprehend on the off chance that he/she has a fundamental learning of C++. Moreover, novices ought to have no less than a reference material for looking catchphrases utilized by the educators (e.g. auto) that uses the c++ 11 or 14 standard. The educators are great in conveying their addresses in an intriguing manner that there are a considerable measure of tips and traps on the most proficient method to utilize the dialect and the visual studio environment (fundamental things). Shockingly, the price is excessively costly if the understudy wishes, making it impossible to have a confirmed endorsement from edx by means of Microsoft.

What could be improved A bit rushed.

C++ is a general purpose programming language that supports various computer programming models such as object-oriented programming and generic programming. It was created by Bjarne Stroustrup and, “Its main purpose was to make writing good programs easier and more pleasant for the individual programmer.”* By learning C++, you can create applications that will run on a wide variety of hardware platforms such as personal computers running Windows, Linux, UNIX, and Mac OS X, as well as small form factor hardware such as IoT devices like the Raspberry PI and Arduino–based boards.
