edX: Introduction to C++

 with  Gerry O'Brien, James McNellis and Kate Gregory

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.

Sune Justesen completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
The material is fine, but the course seems like it has been made spontaneously. It doesn't feel organized at all.
