I would like to know which topics of C++ are useful for the development of CFD routines in OpenFOAM, in the order that it is recommended.

Best regards,

Tobermory will become famous soon enough
To write new code for solvers, coded boundaries etc. you really need a good understanding of the whole of C++, from the bottom up. You might be able to get away with less knowledge for a short while (eg just classes and basic C++ syntax), by just copying and pasting examples that you find in CFDonline, but eventually you will need to write something new and that is where you need the full C++ understanding.

Probably not the answer you wanted - but good luck.
