Programming Concepts – Getting Started

Before Monday’s Class (6/2), please do the following:

  1. Set up your Development Environment
    • Make sure you’ve purchased your subscription to O’Reilly Safari.  See the Syllabus for more information.  You need to add the two books listed on the syllabus to your bookshelf on Safari.  They are:
      • Brian Overland. C++ for the Impatient. AddisonWesley Professional, 2013.
      • Ray Rischpater. Application Development with Qt Creator. Packt, 2013.
    • Read Preface & Chapter 1 of Rischpater. You can skip the sections on “Hello World using the Qt GUI Library” and “Hello World using Qt Quick”.
    • Download and install the Qt 5.2 or 5.3 SDK, Qt Creator, and associated software.  Follow the Rischpater book.
  2. Accept the invitation to Piazza.  Our link to the Piazza course is:  Bookmark it!
  3. Read Chapter 1 of the Overland text.
    1. Note that we’ll NOT be using Microsoft products for coding in this class.  The Overland text refers to Microsoft at times, and some of the coding stuff is particular to Visual Studio.  If you see Microsoft or Visual Studio, just skip it.
    2. In particular, you can skip section 1.2 and 1.3 of the book.
  4. Enjoy your weekend!
