Modern C++ Idioms
C++ is no longer C with classes and it never was just an Object-Oriented language. C++ is a general-purpose programming language. It has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing facilities for low-level memory manipulation. If used correctly, it provides hard to beat performance. Such usage requires a good knowledge of C++ templates and Modern C++ Idioms which are much different from commonly known design patterns popularized by GoF book and invented to handle common use cases in pure OO languages like Java or C#.
What you will learn: During the workshop, we will refresh and broaden our knowledge about C++ templates and will learn Modern C++ Idioms like Niebloid, CRTP, Type Erasure, EBO, and many more. Crafting those skills will allow us to build powerful tools that are useful in the everyday work of every C++ developer.
Experience required: In order to be able to follow the workshop, you should be current with C++ and have some recent experience with writing simple C++ templates. C++11/14 knowledge is suggested but not mandatory.
