NOTE: This is a 2-hour session.
The first C++ standard is around 15 years old now; surely that has given you enough time to master such a wonderfully complicated language. Well think again! The first major revision to the standard was published in 2011. This session will cover many of the core language changes that make it easier to write fast, safe, and maintainable code.
Standard Library Updates
The latest revision of the C++ standard contains many changes to the core language, but much of the benefit of adopting the new standard will come from the updates and additions to the C++ Standard Library. We’ll cover all sorts of things, including: smart pointers, function objects, containers, and concurrency.
