The course is part of this learning path
Functions in C++ are reusable named pieces of code that we can call or invoke when we need them to do something. They help us to take large problems and break them down so that they are more manageable. This course explores functions and puts them to use in a range of projects.
- Beginner coders, new to C++
- Developers looking to upskill by adding C++ to their CV
- College students and anyone studying C++
To get the most out of this course, you should have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of C++.
In this section, we will look at functions, which help us to break our solutions down into smaller pieces. Functions are reusable named pieces of code that we can call or invoke when we need them to do something. They help us to take large problems and break them down so that they are more manageable. This will become very apparent throughout the section, but especially at the end when we work on different projects, including a few projects centered around summing the values in arrays in multiple ways and a really big project at the end, Tic-Tac-Toe. Needless to say, we're going to have a lot of fun in this section. Let's start at the beginning with function prototypes and definitions in the next lecture. I'll see you there.
