Solid C and C++ knowledge is a must to fully understand Windows diagnostic artifacts such as memory dumps and do diagnostic, forensic, and root cause analysis beyond listing stack traces, DLL, and driver information. C and C++ for Windows Software Diagnostics training reviews the following topics from the perspective of software structure and behavior analysis and teaches C and C++ languages in parallel while demonstrating relevant code internals using WinDbg:

  • a tour of relevant language(s) constructs - classic/legacy C++, C++11, and later standards including C++23
  • Windows specifics
  • pointers and references
  • memory layout of structures and objects
  • local, static, and dynamic memory
  • object lifecycle
  • standard library
  • compilation, static and dynamic linkage
  • multithreading and synchronization
  • bad and insecure code
  • … and more

System and desktop application programming on Windows using C and C++ is unthinkable without Windows API. To avoid repeating some topics and save time, the training includes the Accelerated Windows API for Software Diagnostics book as a follow-up or additional reference. There is also a necessary x64 review for some topics, but if you are never used to reading assembly language, Practical Foundations of Windows Debugging, Disassembling, Reversing book is also included.

Before the training, you get the following:

After the training, you also get the following:

  • The new edition of the Memory Thinking PDF book with additional C and C++ examples
  • Personalized Certificate of Attendance with unique CID
  • The new recording
