The term "Modern C++" can be traced back to Andrei Alexandrescu's "Modern C++ Design", published in February 2001. Much has changed since then. Alexandrescu is off Dabbling in various things, Scott Meyers has retired; C++11 changed the landscape, then C++14, and now we are at C++17, with more on the way. Clearly, we are now in the Postmodern C++ era. So let's apply postmodernism to programming. YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT: - How to concentrate on one section of a programme at a time, and test in isolation. QA HATES HIM. - post-modern introspection?. IT WILL SHOCK YOU. - you'll NEVER BELIEVE what a postmodern smart ptr LOOKS LIKE! Although this is a lighthearted talk, it also aims to be insightful. In fact, the goal is nothing less than to change the way you think about programming.
