The course is intended for graduate students and starting postdocs who have programming experience but have not developed software within the framework of a large computing project. The course focuses on programing reconstruction software using tracking reconstruction in C++ as an example. The course is otherwise general and applies to programing problems in any large experimental particle physics project.
Registration is limited to 70 students only
Students should have introductory level experience in C++ programing.
Students should have familiarity with the process of compiling, linking and running programs in a UNIX environment
Students should have familiarity with the physics of charged particle trajectories in magnetic fields
For students who need to learn C++ programing before the course an excellent book is Accelerated C++ by Andrew Koenig and Barbara Moo
