A.J. Orians

60 minute presentation

The C++17 feature of Class Template Argument Deduction can help improve the readability of your code. Come see how it can be used and how well it improves the ability to read and comprehend sections of source code. Then compare it to existing features like Almost Always Auto (AAA) and C++20's concepts. And then see how and why you would create a deduction guide to extend this capability even further.
