Free training: introduction to C++

Published on: September 6, 2018

Kapernikov will be organizing a full day of C++ introductory training on 16/10/2018 in Brussels. So, grab your chance to get up and running (or rather: crawling, maybe walking if you’re really good) in a language that has been around since 1985 and that is the basis for the software you are using every single day.

Why C++?

It’s not that we don’t love Python. It’s still our weapon of choice for data analytics, visualization and prototyping. I wish my children were as intuitive to instruct as Python is today.

But sometimes, you need a language that compiles to lightning-speed machine code, that doesn’t swallow memory like it’s unicorn blood (we drink a lot of unicorn blood*) and that has native bindings to a C++ library. C++ will do all that for you and more.

C++ is an expert-friendly language, but it has a high entry threshold. You cannot just type something that you think will work and then run it, as is the case with Python, Java or C#. With great power comes great responsibility, so you will need to pay attention to resource management, compile-time code execution and much more.

This C++ introductory training is also a great opportunity to get to know the team at Kapernikov. We’re a bunch of friendly nerds with an appetite for data and computer vision in industrial applications (and unicorn blood of course).

*No unicorns were hurt during the preparation for this day.
