Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
- variables, identifiers & expressions; comments & documentation; built-in datatypes, expressions, and assignments
- control structures, branches & scopes; while loops
- functions & functional programming; call-stack and the memory layout; call-by-reference, call-by-value, and call-by-const-reference; overloading; recursion
- applicative programming; source code organisation and the C precompiler; namespaces; for loops; enumerations
- pointers and arrays; dynamic memory allocation; structs

They are able to define and explain the fundamental programming paradigms and how they are represented by the C/C++ language. The students are able to analyse real-world problems and to design and implement an efficient software solution using the programming paradigms for considerably complex problems. They are able to verify the implementation critically.
