Data Types: Primitive types, user-defined types (struct, enum).
Operators: Understanding operator precedence and associativity.
3. Control Flow
Conditional Statements: Using if-else and switch for decision making.
Loops: For, while, and do-while loops for iteration.
4. Functions
Function Definition and Call: Syntax, scope, and lifetime of functions.
Parameters and Return Types: Passing by value, reference, and pointer.
Function Overloading: Creating multiple functions with the same name but different parameters.
Recursion: Solving problems using recursive functions.
5. Pointers and References
Pointers: Basics of pointers, pointer arithmetic, pointers to functions.
References: Reference variables, passing by reference.
Dynamic Memory Allocation: Using new and delete for memory management.
Smart Pointers: Managing dynamic memory with unique_ptr, shared_ptr, and weak_ptr.
6. Object-Oriented Programming (OOP)
Classes and Objects: Defining classes, creating objects, understanding the object lifecycle.
Constructors and Destructors: Initialization and cleanup of objects.
Inheritance and Polymorphism: Base and derived classes, virtual functions, runtime polymorphism.
Operator Overloading: Overloading operators for user-defined types.
Encapsulation and Abstraction: Data hiding and abstracting implementation details.
Interfaces: Abstract classes, pure virtual functions.
7. Standard Template Library (STL)
Containers: Using vector, list, deque, map, set, etc.
Iterators: Accessing elements in containers.
Algorithms: Using STL algorithms for sorting, searching, etc.
