The following excerpt is from Saylor Academy’s course listing:
This course builds on what we learned in the Introduction to Computer Science I course. It will introduce you to a number of more advanced Computer Science topics, laying a strong foundation for future academic study in the discipline.
We will begin with a comparison between Java, the programming language used in the previous course, and C++, another popular, industry-standard programming language. We will then discuss the fundamental building blocks of Object-Oriented Programming, reviewing what we have already learned and familiarizing ourselves with some more advanced programming concepts.
The remaining course units will be devoted to various advanced topics, including the Standard Template Library, Exceptions, Recursion, Searching and Sorting, and Template Classes. By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of Java and C++ programming, as well as a familiarity with the major issues that programmers routinely address in a professional setting.
