Introduction to Web Development
Dates: September 14, 2014 to October 19, 2014
Time: Sundays from 2:30-3:45pm
Five week course in C++ programming. We assume experience using at least one C-like language (ie. C or Java), and will cover all the basics of C++, as well as a few more advanced features. Specifically, we will cover memory management (RAII), object-oriented programming, the standard template library, templates, smart pointers, C++11 features like lambdas, r-value references, and more!
This course is perfect for anyone who wants a head start learning C concepts for CPSC 223 in the Spring, or for anyone who needs a crash course in C++ for some of the 400-level courses.

Rafi KhanCo-director, YC'15Rafi hopped on the code game back in junior year of high school, going on to work on the Crisis Map at Google the summer of 2013. Now he's the co-director and CTO of GAKKO, an education company based in Japan. He dwells at a curious intersection of app development, design frenzy and algorithmic implementation—you can check out his projects here. A connoisseur of fine wit, Rafi spends him time dancing with Yale Jashan Bhangra, crafting puns and just walking around, checkin' stuff out.
Dani DicksteinCo-director, YC'16Dani has been hooked on code ever since he could print "Happy Birthday" in a box of asterisks on the screen back in 8th grade. Since then, he has worked at Foursquare, Noodle Education, and small tech startups. He is passionate about code design, and believes code should be beautiful, elegant, and sexy. When he's not programming, Dani enjoys discussing the big questions of life, biking, and eating cereal.
Alex ReinkingCourse Instructor, YC'16Alex is a Junior CS and Math double major, and has been coding for almost thirteen years. Though his interests lie mostly in research, he's held several coding positions at large companies and local startups alike. You can check out his website here. When he's not writing code or solving math problems, he can be found rocking his 7-string guitar with his metal band. His weakness is bees.
Annie CookEvent Coordinator, YC'17Annie has been in love with coding from the very beginning. Last year. She is currently enrolled in her first college English course. Once she learns how to write, she will edit this bio.
