An Overview of C++11/14, Part I
Presentation Slides, PDFs, Source Code and other presenter materials are available at:https://github.com/CppCon/CppCon2014
This accelerated introduction to C++11/14 surveys most of the key additions to the C++ language, including support for increased code clarity (lambdas, uniform initialization, auto, new OOD control) and improved performance (rvalue references, move semantics and perfect forwarding.)
The presentation is designed for those who truly need a quick overview of the new C++, so the focus is on breadth rather than depth. Whenever feasible, new language features are presented in a style showcasing how they improve over their "Old C++" counterparts.
Leor Zolman has been involved in system software/compiler development, system administration, application development, and education for 40 years, spanning the CP/M, UNIX, and Windows operating systems.
Leor is the author of The BD Software C Compiler ("BDS C", 1979), the first native-code C compiler targeted exclusively for personal computers.
In the early 90's, Leor was a member of the technical staff of R&D Publications, where he wrote columns for R&D's magazines: The C/C++ Users Journal, Windows Developer's Journal, and SysAdmin, and he also authored the first book ever published by R&D Books: Illustrated C.
More recently, in addition to designing and delivering on-site training courses on C, C++, Java, Perl, and Unix, Leor wrote STLFilt: An STL Error Message Decryptor for C++, a Freeware tool for simplification of complex (i.e., unreadable) template-related C++ error diagnostics.
When not engaged in learning or teaching C++, you may find Leor administering and participating in several financial discussions boards, riding his BMW R1200RT, playing tennis or showing people the Ring Nebula through his LX200GPS telescope at star parties around the North Shore Boston area.
