"I saw 'cout' being shifted 'Hello World!' times to the left and stopped right there."
-- Steve Gonedes
I will teach you how to use modern (C++20), idiomatic C++ in this course, making heavy use of the standard libraries. We'll see that C != C++.
This is a CIS 19x class, which means the real lectures will be during the recitation sections. The "lecture" section will not be used. The common lectures are recorded and can be found on the CIS 19x webpage.

Prerequisites

Please speak with the instructor if you don't meet these requirement or have any other questions.
