Whether you’re new to C++, or if you’re a long-time C++ developer and you just want to brush up on the fundamentals, you should consider attending! Similarly, if you have any colleagues who might be interested in attending, you might let them know about this opportunity. Here’s a brief description of the course, from the registration page:

Attention developers: here’s a painless way to learn the basics of C++ from the ground up, whether you’re updating legacy code or writing brand new, efficient, and high-performance code for new platforms like phones and want to take advantage of C++. You’ll learn the fundamentals of the C++ language, how to use the language and its Standard Library effectively, and how to use the Visual Studio environment for developing C++, including debugging, exploring code, and understanding error messages. This is your starting point for building software in C++.
