    • Great condensation of information. What used to be a college semester course really does fit into a one-hour video.
    • Banas is above-average in staying active among comments and responding to student questions.
    • Tutorial also provides excellent supplemental links to round out the education.
    • Teaching is not really designed for learning a first programming language. It’s better suited for experienced coders to break into a new language (C++).
    • Course works better as supplemental information as opposed to a standalone tutorial.
    • Course uses inelegant examples that may prove counterproductive for new programmers.

To anyone learning how to program. THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. This brilliant video is for revision or swapping from one programming language to another. If this is the first time you're learning to code, you will most likely get lost. This is covering everything you'd do in an entire year squashed into 1 hour. Don't recommend him slowing down. There's 100's of tutorials where they go through slowly and carefully.

Prepping for an interview assessment so I watched the whole vid. Pretty good overall review of the language.

This video was beautiful. Fluent, explanatory, fast.

Watched it till the end. The pace is great, just what I needed.

A little feedback:- For a person who may be brand new to C++ or programming in general, you went way too fast.- For a person experienced with programming, but new to C++, you went just a little too fast and provided almost enough supporting detail to each of your points.- (In my case) For a person with experience programming, and some C++ experience who is looking for a refresher or to fill in minor gaps in knowledge, this video was SPOT ON!

Watched the whole video and enjoyed refreshing some basic concepts as well as the C++ specific part about pointers/references etc. Loved how you used them when demonstrating classes explaining encapsulation and polymorphism. Really helped a lot to finally get these C++ things in my head that work kinda different from Java.

Excellent review for old time C programmer who has done tons of C and some C++ in the past, definitely too fast for a beginner.

By Daniela IronEars on 01/18/2020

Thank you! I've completed a bootcamp in C and now moving forward to C++ so this is a perfect overview of the differences between the 2 languages. It also made a lot of things much clearer regarding Java.

By Spencer S on 11/11/2019

As a programmer who knows Java & C, this video was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Such a great summary.

By Quasiker on 05/05/2020

Yep watched the whole video. Suuuuuper helpful! I already knew Python and Java so I really just needed the details and the syntax of programming in C++. I already knew almost all the concepts. This was perfect for that!

By Mt Birks on 06/07/2019

Watched and enjoyed it pretty much. Just what I needed. Consumed in 7 minute segments to avoid brain explosion.

By Chinmaya Bhat on 12/04/2019

I love watching your tutorials! Totally recommend this to anyone who wants to review C++ quickly.
